With an anxiety treatment, we have extra time and attention for you, so that the treatment is as comfortable as possible for you. Clear communication is important to us. We discuss your wishes, fears and complaints in advance, so that we can take this into account during the treatment. Prior to and during the entire process, we clearly indicate which steps we are taking, so that you are always informed. The first appointments consist of the following steps:
Step 1: Meeting with the dentist
After you have made an appointment, you will come by for an introductory meeting. You meet the dentist and discuss your wishes, fears and complaints. You will be given a tour of the practice and the dentist will take X-rays of your teeth. He explains the available treatments and options and draws up a personal treatment plan with you. There is no treatment yet, unless you suffer from acute complaints.
Step 2: The treatment
If you feel comfortable enough, we will start the treatment during the second consultation. It is important that you feel comfortable and that there is mutual trust. We understand that you have anxiety and therefore take this into account during the treatment: we clearly explain what we are doing, we take sufficient breaks and monitor your physical condition. You indicate when you need a break, so that you remain in control during the treatment.
Step 3: Aftercare and follow-up
After the first treatment, the dentist will discuss the follow-up process with you. This trajectory is not only aimed at good oral health, but also at reducing anxiety. This is how we help you step by step to healthy teeth and overcome dental fear.
