Dental Anxiety

General, Cosmetic and Preventative care

Please don’t neglect your teeth through fear of the dentist

Please don’t neglect your teeth through fear of the dentist

Around 50 per cent of the population does not visit the dentist – and a quarter of those fail to do so because they are too afraid. These statistics cause us great concern at Castle Gate Dental Practice in Gloucestershire.

Poor dental health is linked to heart disease, bacterial lung infections, premature births, diabetes and strokes, meaning regular visits are vital to maintaining good general health and wellbeing.

Please don’t neglect your dental wellbeing because of anxiety – speak to us, we can help. We find that even with the most nervous of patients, all they need is time and kindness. Appointments at our Dursley practice are calm, unhurried and welcoming and you will find our chairside manner is excellent.

If you are anxious about your dental or hygiene appointment, please call us for a chat first. You are welcome to visit us, meet our team and have a look around before going anywhere near a dental chair.

The Wand

Pain-free injections with The Wand

At Castle Gate Dental Practice we try to make your dental visits as calm and stress-free as possible. Often patients can worry about local anaesthetic injections. So, we have invested in a new computer-controlled anaesthetic delivery system that works more effectively than traditional syringes, resulting in a more pleasant experience, no pain and no fat lip!

The Wand can be used on adults and children and it is so precise that your dentist can numb-up just one tooth. The result is no numbness of the tongue, cheek or lip, allowing you to return to your routine able to eat, drink and smile.

You might not even know you’ve had an injection! If you would like to find out more, please speak to your dentist or one of our team.
