Many studies around the world have revealed that people are afraid of the dentist and dental anxiety can range from being ‘a little afraid’ of dental care to overwhelming and incapacitating phobia. While dental anxiety rates can be different based on the criteria used to measure it and the population comprising each study, it is clear that dental anxiety is present to some degree in many patients, and should be considered as a real problem.
At Care Dental Platinum we appreciate that dental fear can disrupt good oral hygiene and for this reason, our dentist for nervous patients in London, Dr Bashar Al-Naher, offers an innovative treatment experience – the Enjoyable Dentistry TechniqueTM.
What does the Enjoyable Dentistry TechniqueTM entail?
The Enjoyable Dentistry TechniqueTM is the result of the research of Dr Bashar Al-Naher, an experienced and well-trained dentist for nervous patients in London. This technique, which combines elements from different fields including sedation, psychology and wellbeing, consists of three major steps:
- Happy air – a mixture of oxygen (70%) and nitrous oxide (30%);
- Imagery – providing instructions with the help of images;
- Painless dentistry – this is achieved by eliminating uncomfortable procedures.
Our dentist for nervous patients in London also ensures that all noises are eliminated before the treatment and that pain-free tools are used throughout the treatment process. The combination of these techniques into the Enjoyable Dentistry TechniqueTM can lead to a totally relaxing and rewarding dental experience.
Who can benefit from the Enjoyable Dentistry TechniqueTM ?
Most patients can benefit from the Enjoyable Dentistry TechniqueTM. Whether you wish to clean and polish your teeth or you have to undergo a more complex dental treatment, we will use the Enjoyable Dentistry TechniqueTM to make you feel at ease and relaxed throughout the procedure. This technique is ideal for nervous patients, especially young adults, who can be more susceptible to developing dental phobia compared with the rest of the population. However, the Enjoyable Dentistry TechniqueTM is also ideal for older patients or patients with many dental issues who are not comfortable with the idea of visiting the dentist due to pain or other considerations.
