Nervous Patients… we can help
We understand that some people may suffer from dental anxiety but we don’t want it to get in the way of your oral health. We’re an experienced team of dental professionals, incredibly sympathetic to those who have a fear of the dentist. We’ve developed a number of ways to help you overcome your anxiety, from relaxation techniques to pain management.
An effective way to treat the most nervous of patients is sedation (injection). The drugs have a relaxing and calming effect but don’t prevent communication between dentist and patient so treatment can still be carried out easily. Weight, age and medical condition must be assessed before suitability for this kind of sedation is determined but this would all be discussed during the consultation with the dentist. Usually the patient would need to be referred to a specialist clinic for this treatment.
We make it our mission to ensure your experience of the dentist is a positive one. As you get to know and trust your dentist, hygienist and other members of the dental team at your practice, your fears will soon become a thing of the past!
If you’d like to know more about ways in which we can help you overcome your fear of the dentist, get in touch with our friendly team.

Your Smile Journey
When you join Wincanton Dental you’ll be given a dental examination by one of our experts. This will give us the opportunity to get to know you, any concerns you may have and a detailed look at your mouth, teeth and gums to determine the true level of your oral health. Following the examination, if required we will discuss any treatments we consider necessary and provide you with a bespoke treatment plan which will also outline the cost of the suggested treatment. Finally, we will explain how you can minimise the need for dental treatment through regular preventative care and education.
