At least 10 – 15% of the population are so anxious about a dental visit that they never go. In their Wiltshire dental practice, Jacques Hugo and his staff are interested in you and your dental problems. Allow us to hear your issues and discuss them. Patients from a wide area attend on this basis alone.
Many people have a fear of dentists. This may affect their dental health as they only attend the dentist when they have severe toothache or a complete breakdown of a tooth.
About 40 to 50% admit to being anxious about seeking dental advice and treatment. Most of these are infrequent attenders. These patients only visit the dentist for emergencies and this increases the anxiety and sometimes results in them feeling too embarrassed to attend.
Help them or help yourself and arrange to come to us for a First Visit: a visit that’s all talk and examination and no treatment! This is an appointment where we really are interested in how you feel, what your fears are. Together we can help you back to not only acceptable dental comfort and health, but to your own increased personal confidence in returning to us.
We have sedation available for these nervous patients. They will be seen by a qualified sedationist. Intravenous sedation can be arranged by appointment and this allows the patient to undergo treatment without pain or anxiety.
