Nervous Dental patients
Do You Feel Anxious About Seeing Your Dentist?
If you have a phobia of the dentists, then this video is a must watch for you! Our amazing patient Karen sits down to discuss her fears of the dentist and how, together with principal dentist Matthew Lamb and the Glendair Team, she has managed to transform her confidence!
Karen has had four upper dental implants and she explains what this process was like as a nervous patient and how the experience has made her able to smile again!
Some people are so frightened of the dentist that they avoid dental treatment altogether. At Glendair Dental we are sympathetic in recognising that some patients experience real anxiety, and we have developed new ‘Calm & Caring’ dental techniques and approaches to help overcome your fear and feel at ease.
Try Glendair for a relaxing, friendly, and angst-free dental experience where time is not of the essence – you are.
“We understand how a visit to an ordinary dental practice can make you feel, how just picking up the phone takes courage. We make little adjustments to make you feel calm and relaxed. You see, we are not an ordinary dental practice… we are the practice for people who don’t like the dentist. We will never ever make you feel ashamed of your mouth or of your phobia.”

“I Didn’t Know There Could Be Such A Caring Side To Seeing The Dentist”
I used to be incredibly nervous about going to the dentist. I was terrified of the drill, the pain, having someone pulling at my teeth but here everything is so relaxed, I didn’t know there could be such a caring side to seeing the dentist. They treat you like a human being.
I have only recently joined the practice and was recommended by a friend who goes to Glendair. So far I’ve had a bridge, whitening and hygiene – I’m hooked!
When I went out I used to hide my mouth when I smiled because I had a gap in my teeth that I was worried would show up on photos. If anyone had a camera I used to put a piece of chewing gum in the hole or put my hand in front of my face.
Having the treatment has been so worth it. It has given me a real boost.
“I Feel A Lot Better Coming To The Dentist Now”
Before coming to Glendair, I hardly had any teeth because they were all decayed and broken. I didn’t like coming to the dentists – I didn’t even like the smell and I used to sweat as soon as I sat in the chair.
I went to many different dentists to try them all out until I found Glendair. I met Matt, who I felt comfy with as he’s a nice person. He’s understanding and I feel a lot better coming to the dentist now.
To fix my teeth, I’ve had them capped and I’ve also got false ones. It just makes it easy now they’re on a plate. I think they are brilliant. I’m very impressed with them and I wouldn’t swap the results for anything.
If someone had shown me a photo of my teeth as they are now before coming to Glendair, I wouldn’t have believed that they would’ve been able to sort my teeth! I am over the moon with the results and I would say that they have changed my life – I can now smile!
Sedation or sleep dentistry is an effective way to treat the most nervous of patients. Sedation has a relaxing and calming effect but doesn’t prevent communication between the dentist and you, the patient, so treatment can still be carried out easily. We offer a thorough assessment of your physical conditions such as weight, age and medical history before suitability for this kind of treatment is determined. But don’t worry, all this will be discussed during your stress free consultation with us.
Whilst IV sedation will make you drowsy and unaware of the treatment you are undergoing, you will remain lucid enough to communicate and cooperate with the dental team. The effects of the sedative will take time to wear off and you won’t be able to drink alcohol, drive or work machinery during this time so it is important that someone can help you home after treatment and keep a careful eye on you for sometime afterwards. Your dentist will tell you how long it will be before the drugs are completely clear from your body.
As you get to know and trust your dentist, hygienist and other members of the dental team here at Glendair, your fears will dampen, we hope! In time you will come to see your regular visit to the dentist as just another part of your normal life.
