For nervous patients
FOR ANXIETY PATIENTS
We specialize in treating patients with dental anxiety, so we regularly see patients that have not been to the dentist for years or even decades as they have been scared of the dentist but need treatment after all. Most of the time the dental phobia is caused by a previous bad experience like a scary dentist or lack of empathy or information. At Evergreen Dental we have vast experience with treating anxious patients. We are fully prepared so we can help our patients eliminate any possible stress and chair phobia with empathy in order to be able to carry out the dental treatment,. Further we offer the possibility of carrying out the dental treatment under general anaesthesia. For the whole duration of our patients’ visit to the clinic, we take a number of steps to help them to relax and relieve from the dentophobia.
One will sense this as early as the first arrival, since our friendly team makes every effort to take care so that there will be no reason to be afraid. Besides, we strive to minimize waiting times, to ensure the treatment progresses seamlessly, so that the shortest time necessary is spent in the waiting room.
Our dentists are highly emphatic and have a smoothing effect on patients. On occasion of each and every treatment, one will perceive how they care when the dentist provides with a precise explanation on what will happen and handles the problem with utmost tactfulness. Of course, all our patients get a calming cocktail and tablets to help overcome the vomiting reflex and to loosen spasms. All treatments are done on local anesthetics allowing a completely painless treatment.
Why am I an anxiety patient?
The good news, nobody was born as an anxiety patient. It is rather a previous bad experience that causes the restraints and the brain increases the effect. After a while everything in connection with a dental clinic is becoming annoying, the sound of the drill, the smell of germicide, etc.
Mainly the originator of this anxiety is a bad experience with the dentist who either didn’t fulfil our trust, was rude or impatient causing the loss of trust.
The dentists at Evergreen Dental are aware, are very patient and take the necessary time allow you to develop trust towards them. This will probably be a very new experience for you. Many patients who for decades believed they are anxiety patients had to realise: they are not.
Short overview for patients with dental phobia
Pills: calmatives like Xanax are available at our clinic for easing the stress.
Sedation: this is performed by gas into the mouth where the patient remains awake and is therefore not as comfortable and secure as general anaesthesia.
Local anaesthesia with Lidocaine: is always used at our clinic to ensure a completely painless dental treatment.
General anaesthesia: it is performed intravenously by a specialist ensuring the safest, most comfortable dental treatment allowing several procedures to be done at once.
As you see odontophobia can be dealt with in many ways it is just important
that you find the right clinic that is sensitized to and prepared for dental phobia.
