Pain Free Dentistry and Anxious Patients

Dental Anxiety

It is not uncommon to experience nervousness, dental phobia or dental anxiety before visiting the dentist. Dental anxiety can be caused by a variety of factors, depending on a patient’s circumstances and experiences. Some people are embarrassed about their poor oral hygiene, or the appearance of their teeth. Others have extremely sensitive teeth, a strong gag reflex, or be afraid of needles and dental equipment.

Dental anxiety can carry from childhood into adulthood, preventing people from making appointments for dental appointments, which over time can lead to several dental issues.

Your environment

At platinum Dental care, we prioritise in proving our patients with a friendly, caring service ensuring that they are comfortable throughout their journey with us. From the earthy wooden beams and brick walls to the flowery smells and the soft music, we have taken extra steps to make sure the environment of our practice is serene and tranquil, and in a way, less clinical.

Your Dentist

All our dentists and nurses are specially trained to treat anxious patients. Their warm and professional demeanour will put you at ease. They will spend time with you explaining options and treatment procedures, as well as making sure that you are always cared for and comfortable.  They will also structure appointments for you in a way that will make your treatment feel less overwhelming.


Practising mindfulness can also help to alleviate any fear or nervousness. This includes discussing your anxiety with your dentist during your visit, using headphones to listen to music whilst having treatment, and visiting regularly to prevent future problems.

Don’t let dental anxiety keep you from visiting us to help maintain your oral health. Call us today to book your appointment

  • Pain free anaesthesia with ‘The Wand’

The Wand®

The Wand® is advanced technology for pain-free anaesthesia and is fast becoming the preferred method of numbing before a dental procedure for anxious patients.

How does it work?

The Wand® is a computer-controlled pen-like device that delivers a steady flow of anaesthesia directly to the treatment site. The result is a pain-free and comfortable numbing experience. Only the area around the affected tooth will be numbed, which means you can get back to work or your family right after your procedure.

Call Platinum Dental Care today and ask us about how The Wand® can help you relax and then get back to your life faster after a dental procedure.

We accept all insurances
