At Desford Dental Care, our kind and compassionate team members are all experienced when it comes to helping our nervous patients feel comfortable and secure.

We understand that for some patients, visiting the dentist can be a highly anxious and nerve-wracking experience. Our aim is to make each and every patient who visits us here feel safe, secure, and above all comfortable and confident. This extends to both the care they receive with us and the dental care they continue at home.

At Desford Dental Care, we emphasise calm, quality care, and this dedication has led Dr Hanish to utilise more holistic techniques that can help our patients feel calmer and more confident when visiting us. These include neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and acupuncture.

What is NLP and how can it help me?

Neuro-linguistic programming or NLP uses a psychological approach to help change thoughts and behaviours, with the aim of helping to achieve the desired outcome – such as feeling less nervous at the dentist. It has been used widely since the 1970s to help patients living with anxiety and various phobias. It does this through the use of language and communication techniques designed to help the patient change a pattern of behaviour or thoughts.

Using NLP, we can identify ways to help nervous patients not only feel less nervous but to start to view the dentist and receiving treatment differently. This in turn can help patients in the long term, helping bring about a more confident attitude to their overall oral health and wellbeing.

What is acupuncture and how can it help?

Many of our patients will have come across the idea of acupuncture, even if they haven’t tried it before. This ancient technique is used in traditional Chinese medicine and has proven benefits when used holistically in combination with other medical treatments. Acupuncture involves inserting ultra-thin, flexible and sterile needles through the skin into the targeted treatment area of the body. This is designed to help stimulate the energy flow in the body, rebalancing it for optimal health.

At Desford Dental Care, we can help nervous patients feel more relaxed when receiving treatment through the use of acupuncture. It can also be used to help aid and address other health issues related to dentistry, such as facial pain, and TMD or Temporomandibular disorders. These disorders are related to the jaw and can cause chronic pain in the patient. We can also use it to help treat migraines.

If you’d like to learn more about how NLP and acupuncture can help, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us here at the practice.
