Reasons Why a Consultation Process Is Vital To Helping Nervous Patients Prior To Dental Implant Surg
Dental anxiety is one of the biggest issues that patients face before they pay a visit to the dentist. As undergoing treatment dental implants in Richmond, or indeed anywhere else in the country can involve quite complex surgery, it’s understandable that patients are more anxious than those simply going for a routine check-up. For this reason many private clinics now offer a free, no obligation consultation. Let’s take a look at exactly how this can be of benefit to a nervous patient.
Giving them knowledge
One of the main reasons that patients are nervous before any implant surgery is because they are unsure what to expect. When a potential patient has a consultation, the whole process from the fitting of the implants through to the recovery and after-care is explained to them in great detail. Generally when a patient understands the process, it suddenly doesn’t seem as daunting.
During the consultation process, here at Sheen Dental we give our potential clients the chance to get any questions or concerns answered that they might have. It might be that they’ve read some facts about dental implants that they aren’t sure about, or alternatively, they may simply want to find out whether or not they are eligible to have them before they commit. Having this consultation process gives them the peace-of-mind that they just might need.
Meeting the team
At Sheen Dental we believe an important part of the process is meeting the team. This way a nervous patient can see firsthand who will be carrying out the procedure and it also gives them the chance to become familiarised with the clinic. It’s been proven in the past that those potential patients who are familiar with their surroundings, know the team, and indeed know what to expect, are far less intimidated and ultimately less nervous.
Dealing with nervous patients
When it comes to dental implants in Richmond, here at Sheen Dental modern techniques and technologies mean that we are now able to deliver pain-free dentistry. As such, we have a number of ways in which we can help patients to relax. Conscious sedation techniques are at the forefront of this and nitrous oxide or intravenous (IV) sedation methods are key. In addition equipment such as dental wands can quell the fear of needles by delivering carefully controlled levels of anaesthesia without the need for any large-type syringes which are synonymous with dentistry of old. During the consultation process we explain how all the above techniques work.
