At Ringway Dental, we understand that some patients experience nervousness when it comes to visiting the dentist. Whether you are booked in with us for a scheduled check-up or appointment, or you are seeking a cosmetic treatment without dental anxiety looming over your experience; we can help.
Feeling anxious about going to the dentist is no uncommon concern, and we feel this shouldn’t be something that prevents our patients from seeking the dental care and expertise they deserve.
Here are four ways our welcoming team can ensure our patients’ cosmetic dental procedures are an all-round, comfortable experience.
Our experienced, highly trained team are dedicated to ensuring you receive compassionate and supportive care, whether you visit our surgery for cosmetic or general dental health reasons. We know dental anxiety can be a real hurdle to seeking dental care, so we are here to help. Our team have worked hard to develop a safe, nurturing environment where even our most nervous patients can relax. We are proud to care for our patients and have received excellent feedback as a result, with over 600 5-star reviews you can read through to help you feel at ease!
We have carefully curated our space at Ringway Dental to put our patients at ease, from the moment they walk through the door. We want you to feel welcomed and pampered within our relaxing atmosphere, as we believe visits to the dentist should feel more like a treat than a chore. Our reception area is a soothing space that invites you to relax, with comfortable seating and a carefully curated atmosphere to help you unwind.
Our treatment rooms are equipped with the latest in dental technology, designed to offer a clinical yet comfortable ambience that our patients love.
We know our patients are most comfortable with their treatments when they are well-informed, and that this helps them make the right decisions regarding their cosmetic procedures too. We therefore make the effort to explain each procedure and how it works, as well as working closely with our patients to help them identify the treatment that will suit them best. We work to guide them through the process, being honest about what they can expect from their treatment and any side effects they may experience.
Our team are always happy to answer any questions you may have about your treatments. You can find further information on our website, as we strive to provide as much detail as we can on our cosmetic treatments pages.
If you are feeling very nervous about your first visit to the dentist, we do provide free online consultations with our Smile Advisors, Nikita and Stephanie. This gives you the chance to ask any questions and think about the type of treatment you’d like before visiting the dental team for your consultation. These convenient, 20-minute appointments are available to book here and will be conducted via Zoom using video call.
For those with considerable levels of anxiety surrounding dental visits or treatments, we do offer dental sedation. Sedation is a safe way to reduce the nervousness that many patients can experience surrounding dental procedures, and avoids the need for general anaesthetic.
Intravenous, or IV, sedation is where a medication is given directly into the bloodstream.
Whilst they are an exceptionally safe method used to relieve anxiety, some precautions must be taken. If you opt for sedative treatment, we will advise that you avoid certain activities for at least 24-hours after your procedure. These are advised against as a precautionary measure as the sedative effects may slightly impact decision-making and co-ordination following your treatment. These include:
The cosmetic dental procedures we offer at Ringway Dental are meticulously delivered within our pristine clinical setting. Brought to you by experts in the field of cosmetic dentistry, the impressive results of our treatments have been making our patients smile for decades.
We work with nervous patients each day in our practice, and we are committed to making the same provisions for those seeking cosmetic dental care too. Even if you do not experience dental anxiety, we have thoughtfully designed our welcoming environment to help you unwind and feel comfortable every moment you are under our care.
Call our reception team now on 0161 437 2029 to book an appointment. We can discuss sedative options with you over the phone, or you can speak to the dentist about them during your initial consultation.
