The most common fear when it comes to dentistry is of pain when having treatment. This is completely normal!
We (Winning Smiles Dentists Romford), have helped hundreds of people past this problem, with our extensive experience in this area, and our investment in medical technology to support all of our patients.
The dental wand, 3d scanning and conscious sedation have helped hundreds of people. We love the reviews people leave after having solved the problem: the fear of dentistry and wanting nicer teeth.
The Dental Wand releases a small dose of anaesthetic so that the area is being numbed before the needle goes in. This means a pain-less injection for everyone, every time.
Some dentists charge extra to use this technology – but for us, it is at the heart of our gentle dental philosophy, not an optional extra!
How can dentistry be painless?
Avoiding painful injections is the first step. We use the dental wand for all of our patients.
It is perfectly normal to be worried about dentistry,
Conscious sedation (CS) is the final step to reassure most anxious patients needing dental treatment. If you have a needle phobia, concerns about gag reflexes and invasive dental treatment, Conscious Sedation is the best way overcoming all these fears.
Interestingly, you are neither awake nor are you put to sleep. The sedatives and painkillers administered makes you utterly relaxed and drowsy and makes you completely unaware of both the numbing anaesthetic (LA) and the actual treatment.
And finally – the most important ingredient?
We take our time – anaesthetic does not take effect ‘at the speed of light’!
Often new patients tell us that their experience of fillings is a sharp pain from the injection followed by a dentist drilling the tooth before it has gone properly numb: the result? Pain and Fear.
The most important ingredient is taking the time. The time for painless procedures to take effect, the time to ask if everything is ok, and to pay attention to the answer.
Take the time to come and see us and talk things through beforehand, it’s never as bad as you think.
What they say about us
Petrified of Dentists
A Winning Smile – after being absolutely petrified of the dentist and not visiting one for about 17 years i decided it was time to do something about my brown stained teeth, broken crowns & gum disease. After visiting several other implant specialists i eventually found Andrew and his team. As a sedation patient this can be very expensive, Andrew started a plan of works which allowed me to have a mild sedative which alleviated my stress and fear allowing works to proceed.
From a very happy smiley person.
Carol R – Making patients smile again
After having five old teeth removed I had a real confidence issue when out with friends or family. I always felt self conscious about smiling, as this would show the gaps in my teeth. So I went along to see Andrew who was very understanding and explained in great detail what he could do and how long the work would take.
I felt so confident in Andrews advice that I decided to have five new implants and some additional work started as soon as possible. Now after 6 months i have the smile i always wanted and feel more confident in public. I can’t thank Andrew and the staff at winning smiles enough for all the help and support they have given me.
