Dental Anxiety in Chandlers Ford Hampshire

As we know oral health is another important area, and our teeth play an important role, from helping us to chew and digest food, to giving our face shape and confidence when smiling to connect with others.

There are a large number of dentist clinics in Chandlers Ford and many clients come to see me with a fear of the dentist. Quite often they have cancelled their appointment and are disappointed that they have not attended for the dentistry work they really wanted to complete. Everyones meaning and interpretation of the fear of the dentist is different.

 

The charity National Smile month  share that 1 in 7 adults fear the dentist and that dental fear is ranked more fearful than the fear of heights. Common fears of the dentist are tooth drilling and anasthetic injection. It could be the sight of the dentist, or the smells and sounds that  trigger unpleasant memories and associations. Just the thought of a needle could be enough, even before the client has attended their appointment.

At the Hampshire Anxiety Clinic, we provide effective and lasting treatments for anxiety, so clients can learn to respond differently and sucessfully overcome their dentistry fears. Every clients anxiety is a unique experience to them and is treated with the upmost respect and confidentiality.

We have a range of effective treatments that target the relevant areas that are causing unnecessary distress and anxiety, below I have provided a little more detail and on the treatments page you can read the full list of therapies that are provided.

For example our treatments include:

  • Mindfullness, relaxation and imagination techniques
  • Cognitive restructuring - thought based skills to challenge exisiting habits and assumptions that could be responsible for maintaining the anxiety. This includes developing alternative beliefs and behaviours that are more sucessfull.
  • The teaching of self hypnosis
  • Behavioural techniques, in some cases dependant on the depth and complexity of the fear, this includes a systematic desensitisation, or gradual exposure to the fear stimulus. This is agreed  by consent with the client prior to any treatment and is only done so in a controlled, safe and structured approach. There are times when the therapist attends with the client to help maintain and support the client early on in this process. More often than not the client will have a very clear plan and will be empowered to complete this themself with feedback to the therapist at the next appointment.
  • Further specific interventions are provided to reduce the emotional significance of particular fears, thus the client increasing their self control, self belief and the motivation to remain calm and relaxed.
