Nervous patients

Going to the dentist can be an anxiety-inducing experience for some people, regardless of age.

Three ways we combat these concerns are:

Ambience: From the moment you walk through the door at Marlborough Dental Studio you see we do our best to target these fears. The ambience, the décor and the welcome you receive will immediately put you at ease and relieve any feelings of anxiety you may have.

Staff care and experience: All of our dentists, hygienists and dental nurses have excellent manners and offer unhurried appointments taken at a pace you are comfortable with.

Technology for your comfort: We also have a host of new technologies up our sleeves to make your visit even more pleasant, including intravenous sedation and air abrasion for drill-free fillings.

Sedation if desired: Intravenous sedation or conscious sedation is a very safe and reliable method of controlling dental anxiety and phobia. The sedation is given through a small needle in the crook of your arm and it makes you feel relaxed and calm. You will remain conscious throughout your appointment. Many patients do not remember much of their procedure and treatment that may have taken an hour or more will seem to have taken less time.

Communication: We fully inform our patients on what they need to expect during treatment procedures, and also encourage transparent communication throughout the procedure so you have the opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have.

Pain free injections

With The Wand you might not even know you’ve had an injection. This is because The Wand works more effectively than traditional syringes, resulting in a more pleasant experience, no pain and very little numbness. The Wand can be used on adults and children alike and is so precise that your dentist can anaesthetise just one tooth. This may result in reduced numbness of the tongue, cheek or lip, allowing you to return to your normal routine able to eat, drink and smile.

Cerec

Nervous patients will be especially interested to learn that we are among just 700 dentists in the UK to have invested in Cerec technology. The Cerec system enables us to design, create and fit a porcelain filling, dental crown or veneer during a single appointment – something that would have taken at least two weeks and required multiple visits in the past. We don’t need to take impressions either. Please ask us for more information.
