We know that many people come to the dental clinic with fear and anxiety. We believe that we can and do overcome those fears, usually without the need for sedative drugs; but, those are available too.
We also know that there is a clear link between keeping teeth and gums healthy and reducing the risk of serious health issues, for example heart disease and stroke. We know this because of the medical research that has clearly demonstrated the effect of inflammation in the mouth on susceptible tissues elsewhere in the body. Please see the “maintaining health” area of our website for further information.
