Sedation Dentistry in Rugby

Why Do People Experience Fear or Phobia of the Dentist?

Did you know that one in every four individuals suffers from dental fear or phobia? Fear is a natural response to perceived danger, but a phobia is characterized by irrational fear, accompanied by panic, a loss of control, and anxiety. This can significantly impact a person’s health and quality of life, leading to poor oral hygiene, dental discomfort, and ultimately, tooth loss.

Fear of the dentist may stem from various negative experiences, such as:

  • A previously painful dental appointment
  • Unpleasant sounds from the dental office
  • Insensitive remarks from family or friends
  • A lack of control while in the dental chair

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis involves a deep state of relaxation and cannot be performed without the individual’s willingness to participate. In this state, the subconscious mind becomes more open to suggestions, allowing for positive affirmations to effect desired changes and foster progressive improvement.

Our team has achieved notable success in treating patients with dental phobia through Sedation Dentistry in Rugby, with many satisfied patients attesting to its effectiveness.

Sedation Dentistry in Rugby also includes the latest technologies for administering local anesthesia painlessly, such as the Wand, a computer-assisted anesthesia system that revolutionizes the delivery of local anesthetics, making the experience virtually pain-free.

The Wand® STA Instrument signifies a leap forward in dental technology, moving away from traditional syringes to a system that enhances patient comfort, builds loyalty, and sets a dental practice apart. It facilitates highly accurate single tooth anesthesia without collateral numbness. Real-time feedback ensures precise intraligamentary injections, preventing complications such as blockages or excessive pressure, which could lead to cartridge leaks.

The Wand handpiece is designed for superior control and comfort, resembling a pen and significantly reducing patient anxiety. Its computer-controlled flow rates deliver anesthetics at a consistent rate below the pain threshold, ensuring a comfortable and predictable experience across three different speeds tailored to each injection technique.
