Nervous Patients

One in four people are anxious about visiting the dentist, so dental phobia is not uncommon. There can be several reasons for this, such as painful
experiences in the past, dentists not listening to your concerns, guilt about not attending for long periods or being self-conscious about the current condition of your teeth and gums.


One visit to the Hove Dental Clinic and we promise you will not look back. Signs you might be a nervous patient with a dental phobia include the following:

• You feel tense or have trouble sleeping the night before an appointment
• You get increasingly nervous while you’re in the waiting room
• You feel like crying and feel helpless when you think of going to the dentist
• Even the thought of a dental appointment can make you feel physically ill
• You panic during treatment appointments and feel like you are not in control
• You are unable to communicate your feelings due to being paralysed by fear
• You have a severe gag reflex
