Dental anxiety, or fear of the dentist, is a real problem for many patients and a common reason for poor oral health. Wirral dentist Dr. Ian Buckle and his associates welcome patients who have been away from the dentist and struggle with dental anxiety.
Here at Buckle Advanced Dental Care, we see many patients who are anxious when sitting in the dental chair. We understand that many people do not look forward to a trip to the dentist- but we believe that we can change that!
In most cases, it’s the people who meet you and then treat you who can make the world of difference to your dental experience. At Buckle Advanced Dental Care we always strive to make you feel welcome and comfortable from the moment you step through the door.
We will provide you with ample opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have and we will do our best to ensure that you feel completely at ease and trust us before we even carry out an examination. In many cases, gaining a better understanding of your oral health, the benefits of maintaining it and what steps are involved in each part of your treatment can dispel many fears and help you relax. Your oral health can have an impact on overall health and having a comfortable, functional smile is an important for the best possible quality of life.
Avoiding the dentist can often lead to complex dental problems which will both affect quality of life and require extensive dentistry to correct. Re-establishing a routine of preventive dental care can provide us the opportunity to spot dental problems in the early stages when conservative treatment options are effective.
