Many people suffer from dental anxieties, fears and phobias, which have developed through childhood dental experiences or prior traumatic dental treatments. It can put people off visiting the dentist despite pain, serious decay and issues caused by negligence of oral hygiene.

At Blaby Dental Practice, we understand how distressing visits to the dentist can be. Our practice provides a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere and our staff will respect your anxiety and ensure that you feel calm.
During your initial consultation we will take time to understand your fears in a non-judgemental way, for this reason we allocate a longer appointment time and discuss your treatment options.
Some of our patients find that listening to music or watching a DVD can be a good distraction technique, we offer these options as well - ask within the practice for more information.
For our most anxious patients where conventional anti-anxiety methods are ineffective we can offer conscious sedation* to alleviate fear, it has the added benefit of no memory of the procedure. Patients who have undergone a procedure using sedation dentistry will tell you it is a simple, relaxing way to experience dentistry.

(*Conscious sedation - patients must be accompanied by a chaperone for this procedure)
