At Erskine Dental Care we understand that many people may be apprehensive about visiting us.

 

Our friendly and knowledgeable dentists will take time to listen to your dental background to help make your visits as laidback as possible. Having had experience of working with many thousands of patients over the years, we understand that “Dental Fear” can arise from many sources:

Previous bad experience.

Certain smells or sounds.

Something that has developed with age.

Fear of the unknown.

Something you can't explain.

Something else.

At Erskine Dental Care, we are non-judgemental and will work with you to help find a way to overcome or sometimes work around the barrier. This may mean a simple explanation of the situation and an understanding of the solution or, where this is not appropriate, of particularly apprehensive patients, we offer IV sedation treatment (see below).

Sedation

Sedation is a very reliable and safe way of reducing your dental anxieties, making your experience more pleasant and relaxing.

 

Conscious sedation is becoming a very popular and safe way over a range of dental phobias. Sedation will make you feel sleepy and relaxed. Most patients can remember little or nothing of the procedure.

 

It is suitable for almost all healthy adults and will be performed safely by our specially trained and experienced team at Erskine Dental Care. IV sedation is so effective that it is often hard to suggest any other form of dental treatment to those who have experienced it.

If you are one of the many patients who have a dental phobia, you can contact us safe in the knowledge that we have extensive experience in working with patients with differing needs.
