Nervous Patients

Here at Werner Joubert Dental Practice we are fully aware that dental anxiety or 'fear of the dentist' is a major stumbling block for a lot of people. It usually prevents otherwise intelligent, rational people from maintaining a healthy smile.

The key to good oral health is prevention - stopping problems before they arise. Unfortunately, people who suffer from dental anxiety often fail to visit the dentist for routine care. When they finally do go, often a small preventable problem has turned into a problem which will require major attention.

Our dentists have years of experience from various practices around the world in successfully treating dental phobias. We have used a number of techniques in treating nervous patients. Some even involve the use of mild sedatives but most techniques involve face to face communication, answering of the patient's questions, and a lot of listening.
