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-free injection for everyone, every time.
Some dentists charge extra to use this technology – but for us, it is at the heart of our painless 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.
Every step was explained in full and any concerns I had were answered. It has taken 6 months in total but it was the best decision I have ever made. The staff are amazing, you are made to feel so welcome and the best thing is you end up with amazing teeth, I love my new smile!!! Thank you all so much.
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.
Dr Andrew Fennell at Winning Smiles was highly recommended by a friend, who also suffers from anxiety when going to the dentist. I really did need to get in to see the dentist (having not seen one in years due to a previous bad experience).
