Overcoming Dental Fear, Anxiety or Phobia at Oxford Dentist is easy. If you are nervous, anxious, phobic or simply afraid of the dentist, well done for getting this far ! People who have been too nervous to visit the dentist, may not realise how dental technology and pain relief techniques have improved.
We can refer you for special expertise in sedation called ‘Happy Air’ which will calm and relax you. We can also arrange for a medical doctor to administer intravenous sedation at the practice. It is used for the most nervous of patients with great results. We sometimes work with a hypnotherapist on the premises.
Here at Newbury we use a device called “The Wand” on our nervous patients. The wand is a computer assisted system for local anesthesia. Patients who experience this technology will find it offers less pain and more contained numbness for the area that is being treated by using single tooth anesthesia (STA).
