Here in the U.K. 1 in 5 people don’t see their dentist regularly, whether it be down to time constraints, dental phobia or cost. If this sounds familiar to you, perhaps it’s time to consider checking in to give your smile a little TLC. Here at Corner House, we can help you take the first step.
You’re not alone
As we mentioned in the intro, not all adults are visiting the dentist the recommended once or twice a year. Here at Corner House, we’ve helped many patients who are starting their journey to a new smile after several years of not being in the dentist’s chair. We’re not here to judge or criticise and will do everything we can to support you, whatever your dental needs are.
Combatting dental phobia
We’re here to help you fight your dental phobia, if this is the main reason you’ve been putting off a visit to the dentist. Our team is here to talk you through the source of your nerves and offer a solution that will help you have the treatment you need and deserve. Acupuncture is a proven technique to battle nerves, and can even help you to relax if you’re worried about your gag reflex during your appointment; this is a common problem that we see everyday and if this sounds familiar to you, rest assured you’re not alone. We also offer sedation therapy and have seen many patients totally transform their relationship with the dentist after experiencing treatment with sedation.
What to expect during your first visit
After a chat with you about your general health and dental history, we recommend a thorough examination, including X-rays so we can check your jawbone is healthy. It’s possible that you may have significant plaque and tartar build up on your teeth, so we may suggest you book an appointment with one of our friendly hygienists, who can remove this staining and help you on your path to healthier gums. Your first appointment is also an opportunity to discuss the aspects of your smile you’re unhappy with. We can put together a tailored treatment plan to address these concerns and discuss the ins and outs of sedation therapy and acupuncture with you, to see if these appeal.
We believe cost shouldn’t be a barrier when it comes to your dental health and smile. Corner House Dental offer 0% finance options to help you spread the cost of your treatment. Investing in your smile is one of the most worthwhile things you can do for your health, happiness and confidence.
We look forward to welcoming you at our Norwich practice.
