If you are a regular patient of ours, hopefully you are aware that we work hard to reduce peoples fears about dental visits. We are constantly looking for new ways we can help make your visit more comfortable and manage fears.
One method is with The Wand which we have been using for around 4 years. It is an electronic anaesthetic system which has many benefits over the traditional syringe and needle for numbing. It makes it much more comfortable having your mouth numbed and also there is no swollen face or fat lip, which means you can go about your day as normal once treatment is finished.
We have 100’s of patients who have tried The Wand and were so happy with it that they would’t go back to the syringe and needle.
Marie recently came to see us and was scared about a having dental treatment. She shares her experience in the video below.
At Brightside Dental we love seeing nervous people and we get the most satisfaction from being able to make a positive difference in the lives of our clients. If you would like to know more about how we can help with dental fears, or you know someone who could benefit from seeing us, please give us a call on 020 88884401.
