Over 99% of patients can be treated painlessly and comfortably with a simple, modern dental local anaesthetic - these are effective for everything from a simple filling to a more complicated tooth extraction and we encourage all our patients to be treated by this method.
We do, however, understand that some people have a true dental phobia and that very occasionally sedation may be appropriate. This can be provided by the City Centre Dentists if necessary and would be discussed beforehand, giving you the opportunity to ask any questions and help you make an informed decision about your treatment.
We ensure you have the best possible experience from the moment you step through the door. Our friendly team will put you at ease, and a comfortable reception, well supplied with magazines, complimentary refreshments and your choice of music, will help you feel relaxed.
When it comes to fears and phobias, we understand the power of open communication. Your local Manchester dentist will spend time discussing with you any anxieties or concerns ahead of your treatment, and will continue to make sure that you are well-informed and cared for. Our practitioners are not only experts in their fields, but are sensitive and responsive to dental phobias and general anxieties. We offer a wealth of experience and tried-and-tested techniques to help you feel comfortable at every step, whether you are visiting for a routine check up or for further treatment.
If you have a severe dental phobia, talk to us about how sedation might help. There are a variety of ways to administer sedation to ensure you’re calm and relaxed before treatment begins.
There are a number of ways to alleviate your dental anxieties, some of which you can put into practice before you even arrive.
Help is at hand for dental anxiety and phobia.
