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.
