Fear of the dentist

Fear of the dentist

Dentophobia, or fear of the dentist, affects many people, both young and old. At Dental Asensio, we are specialists in managing this common fear and provide several strategies to help you feel more comfortable.

Here are various tips to overcome your fear of the dentist:

  1. Identify the cause of your fear: Understanding why you are scared of dental treatments is the first step towards dealing with it.
  2. Visit our clinic: Familiarize yourself with our environment and staff. Understanding our procedures, and costs, and hearing firsthand accounts from our satisfied patients can help to alleviate your worries.
  3. Choose a trusted dentist: Recommendations from friends and family play a crucial role in choosing a dental clinic. At Dental Asensio, 90% of our patients come through referrals.
  4. Prepare mentally: Making the decision to face your fears and visit the dentist is a big step, and mental preparation can make the process less daunting.
  5. Having a companion can strengthen your resolve to attend your appointment and provide distraction during the waiting period. Don’t be afraid to communicate your fears with your dentist; expressing your concerns can greatly ease your stress.

At Dental Asensio, we utilize conscious sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for surgical procedures. This combination of medicines not only helps to calm the patient but also eliminates pain, acting as an anaesthetic. Post-application, you will stay awake but will find it difficult to speak due to the numbing effect. However, you will remain conscious throughout the entire procedure.

Our approach ensures maximum relaxation for our patients, always under the watchful eyes of our experienced professionals.
