Dental Anxiety

We get a lot of calls at Soho dental from patients that have severe dental anxiety. Dental phobia is a more serious condition than anxiety. It leaves people panic-stricken and terrified. People with dental phobia have an awareness that the fear is totally irrational, but are unable to do much about it. They exhibit classic avoidance behaviour; that is, they will do everything possible to avoid going to the dentist. People with dental phobia usually go to the dentist only when forced to do so by extreme pain.

Soho dental does a very good job at making you feel at home, making you feel comfortable in the chair, and just really putting you at ease. Our hygienists and our dentists will go over treatment prior to doing anything in your mouth. They’ll tell you exactly what they’re going to be doing so that there’s not any confusion or any apprehension about what kind of treatment you’re going to be receiving.
