Frequently Ask Question
What strategies does The Fold Dentistry use to help manage dental anxiety?

At The Fold Dentistry, we understand how nerve-wracking a visit to the dentist can be for some of our patients. That’s why we’ve implemented a number of strategies to help alleviate your concerns and create a relaxed, comfortable environment. From the moment you step into our clinic, our friendly and compassionate team prioritises making you feel at ease. We communicate openly, ensuring you fully understand every aspect of your treatment.

In addition, we use state-of-the-art technology to ensure procedures are as non-invasive as possible. Our team is skilled at delivering treatments gently and efficiently to minimise discomfort. We also encourage patients to voice their concerns or fears so we can address them head-on and adjust our approach accordingly. Our goal is to change your perception of dental visits and make your experience as stress-free as possible.

Can I have sedation for my dental treatment if I'm a particularly nervous patient?

Yes, The Fold Dentistry offers sedation options for patients who experience heightened anxiety or fear related to dental procedures. Our primary concern is your comfort, and we understand that sedation can sometimes be necessary to ensure a positive dental experience.

Sedation dentistry involves administering a sedative before or during the dental procedure to help you relax. It’s important to note that you won’t be unconscious—instead, you’ll be in a state of deep relaxation. The type of sedation used will depend on the severity of your anxiety and the specifics of your treatment. Rest assured, our team is thoroughly trained in administering dental sedation and prioritises your safety above all else. After the treatment, you might not even remember the procedure, allowing for a truly stress-free experience. Please discuss your concerns with us in advance, and we will work with you to find the best solution for your needs.
