By Hannah Kemp 21st Feb 2020
When you have a toothache and are scared of the dentist, it can feel like a true disaster. While many patients who have a fear of the dentist report a feeling of isolation, it is a surprisingly common phobia; one which our team at Buttercup 7 Day Dental, our Glasgow dentist in the West End see every day and are eager to help you overcome.
Many modern dental surgeries want to help their patients overcome their fears in relation to dental procedures, but oftentimes, many of them can actually make the phobia worse.
At Buttercup 7 Day Dental, our team is different. We take the time to help you relax in our dental surgery and have designed each step of your journey with our Glasgow dentist, west end to be pleasurable and non-invasive, reducing your phobia with each visit to our practice.
How does our Glasgow dentist, west end manage this? Read on to find out.
Aromatherapy in the waiting room
Many patients feel their fears increase when they walk into a dental surgery.
Why? Many dental surgeries have an off-putting, clinical, and chemical smell to them, which is far from relaxing or soothing.
When you visit our Glasgow dentist, west end, we hope that the aromas of our waiting room will help you feel more relaxed. Specifically chosen by aromatherapists to help aid relaxation, our waiting room does not smell clinical and embodies the smells and appearance of a coffee shop.
Another thing many phobic patients dislike about their trip to the dentist is the sensation that they are being rushed. It is hardly reassuring when you walk into a non-familiar setting and are rushed through a procedure, while the entire time you are sweating profusely.
At Buttercup 7 Day Dental, our dental team will take time with you, getting to know you as a person and making you feel welcome and in control. We will discuss every procedure with you and help you to understand the details of each treatment option.
Informal but professional dress
Once again, it is far from comforting when you are laid back and have individuals in white coats and masks leaning over you asking you to say ‘ah.’
While there is an obvious hygienic reason for the use of dental masks and gloves, our team aims to wear more informal attire. That way, you can see that they are a person and not just someone wearing an impersonal white coat.
At Buttercup 7 Day Dental, we know that many dental surgeries boast about being patient-focused. However, at our surgery, our team aims to take this concept one step further.
If, while in the dental chair, you want our team to stop the procedure, we will. If you want some more information about the treatment, we will happily provide it.
We strive to make you as comfortable as possible while you are undertaking any treatment with us, and endeavour to permanently erase your dental related phobias.
