We take pride in being able to carry out even the most complex of procedures in a seamless manner with the least discomfort and most satisfaction from our patients. You need not fear anymore, Zental is here to help!

Dental phobia

If you are anxious about going to the dentist, take heart. You are far from alone. According to statistics from the Oral Health Foundation, almost half of UK adults share your trepidation, with 12% suffering from an extreme dental anxiety or phobia. It is actually more common than a fear of heights. At the same time, nearly half the population are unhappy with their teeth, 31% of adults have tooth decay and 29% of us suffer from regular dental pain. There is growing evidence linking poor oral health to serious health conditions including diabetes, heart disease, dementia and problems during pregnancy. A fear of pain or the unknown is a common reason for avoiding the dentist, usually stemming from an unpleasant or painful early dental experience. However, thankfully due to the many advances in dentistry over the years, most of today’s dental procedures are pain-free and far more comfortable than in previous years.

Are you nervous? Our team can help

At Zental, we understand that you maybe apprehensive about undergoing dental procedures so we have created our own haven of tranquillity. Designed to stimulate the senses using essential oils, soothing music and offering herbal teas, we make your experience with us as calm and relaxing as possible. We also offer several options for sedation for those who need a comforting and helping hand in easing any fears.

We specialise in treating anxious patients and offer Intravenous Conscious Sedation (IV Sedation) to help put you at ease during your treatment. The added benefit of this form of sedation is its amnesic effect – after treatment, you will normally have little or no memory of the experience and likely believe that you slept through the whole procedure.

There are many other highly effective ways to help you overcome your fears and anxieties. Just speak to one of our empathetic team who will arrange for a consultation. Your dentist will be able to help you decide which type of sedation is right for you.
