It’s a scenario that your dentist has to deal with regularly in central London, a nervous patient, and if you fall under this category, it can make treating you difficult if you are bouncing around in the chair. But there are ways of getting through this and it’s easier than you think. You need to first have a session with your dentist to just chat about what it is that could be making you this way and by opening up, the pair of you can formulate a solution to the problem. Modern dentistry has changed immensely over the past couple of decades for the better- and it still is. The technology used in the dentist’s surgery today makes treatments very painless, but there will always be a back up in the form of sedatives and anaesthetics if you so desire them to get you through your session and seeing as you are the one paying, then it’s you that has the right to make these choices. Some dentists practice sedation techniques through aromatherapy which have very calming tendencies in a nervous patient, as a beautiful aroma is not something you expect whilst you are being treated. If you go down these routes in the beginning, your nerves will adapt to the situation and your treatment will become easier in the future.
