You Are Normal

It isn’t fun to have dental anxiety, but it is common and normal. A huge amount of people have some level of fear in terms of the dentist. That is why the Abbey Road dental staff have additional training in this area, simply because so many patients suffer from some level of nerves. You should not be embarrassed, we are here to help you not judge you. Your priority should be understanding why you have the fear so that you can overcome it.

Dental Technology Is Much More Advanced These Days

Since the last time you visited the dentist, a lot has probably changed. The terrifying looking tools really are a thing of the past as technological advances mean treatments are much less invasive, and much more efficient than they were before. Visiting the dentist now is a much more comfortable experience than it used to be.

You Can Talk To Us So We Can Help

You can ask us whatever questions you want to and we can use all our experience and training to ensure you feel comfortable, and approach the situation at your own pace.

You Need To Come In

Your fear is stopping you having dental treatments you need. Avoiding getting regular dental work, advice and cleaning could lead you to have issues that require more invasive work down the line. Although visiting for checkups might seem scary, it acts as a preventative to more potentially invasive treatments.

You Needn’t Come Alone
