Our patients can feel relaxed and comfortable through our sedative dental options
Sedation Dentist Bundaberg
We know that many Australians are afraid of the dentist, with the number being around one in six adults suffering from dental fears. This is staggering and means that many people are not visiting the dentist regularly due to the fear.
Many patients suffering from dental anxiety will wait until a serious dental problem arises before they’ll visit. It’s important not to leave issues until they worsen and get treatment early on.
This is why the experienced dental team at van der Walt Dental can help anxious patients through sedative options that will have you feeling calm and relaxed during your visit.
What are people afraid of the dentist?
There are many reasons which lead to people having fears of the dentist and dental anxiety, including:
The fear of dental pain – A very common reasons is that patients don’t want to experience any dental pain. However, you know that through advancements in dentistry, modern dental treatments are less painful or even pain-free.
Fear of dental needles – People who have a phobia about needles may choose not to visit the dentist as they want to avoid having dental needles.
Fear of embarrassment – Many people feel uncomfortable with the state of their oral hygiene and don’t want to show a dentist or oral hygienist. We want to help you achieve better hygiene, it’s our passion.
Fear of loss of control – People don’t like losing control and laying down in a dental chair can feel exactly like this for many people. The team at van der Walt Dental can help you feel relaxed and comfortable.
Past experience – The largest contributor to dental anxiety is for patients who have suffered traumatic experiences in the past at the dentist. We can ensure you that dental technologies have come a long way, and modern dentistry is virtually pain-free.
