If you experience dental anxiety you may feel silly, and that you are on your own. At The Mall Stockport dental practice, we are eager to point out that there is nothing to feel embarrassed about; fear of the dentist actually affects approximately one in ten UK adults to the point that they put off seeking treatment until an emergency forces them to visit a dental practice.
This can end up being incredibly stressful, making fear of the dentist worse. At The Mall Stockport we will never pass judgement if your oral health is less than perfect, through fear or for any other reason. All we want to do is to work with you to help you get back to a healthy condition, and then to maintain that after your initial course of treatment is complete.
Whether you come to us as an emergency dental patient or you are determined to conquer your fears, you will be treated with the utmost care, compassion and professionalism at all times.
Some patients at The Mall Stockport clinic find that by talking through any treatments and analgesia requirements with their dentist, and devising hand signals to indicate when a break in treatment is needed, this is enough.
For those who need a little more help to relax, we also offer treatment under conscious sedation, which means you will be awake during and able to cooperate with treatment, but will be very relaxed, pain-free, and won’t remember much after treatment is complete.
