Fear Patients

The most important thing to control fear at the dentist's office is to establish a relationship of trust between the patient and the doctor. The first step towards more pleasant visits to the dentist is to mention your fear when you book an appointment. Unpleasant fears related to visits to the doctor can be alleviated when a patient who is afraid of the dentist is supported by a dedicated, professional therapist. The aim is to meet the patient as a person whose oral health is part of a larger whole.

One of the reasons why the dentist is feared is the fear that the procedures will cause pain. Since the attitudes and methods have developed considerably since last years, it is possible to perform the procedures completely without the feeling of pain.

The goal is to solve the problem in cooperation with the patient and the treatment team and get the fear under control. For a fearful patient, it is very rewarding when the mouth has been examined and treated. When everything goes well, the fear gradually begins to dissipate. And it is also very rewarding for the dentist. It may not always be possible, and in such cases, the solution may be to take care of your oral health at once under anesthesia.


When dental treatment scares you, it is possible to use sedation, i.e. light anesthesia. Sedation causes a relaxed and drowsy feeling, during which speech contact is maintained. During sedation, extensive procedures can be performed comfortably without pain.

Sedation is carried out with intravenous medication. Sedation is supervised by an anesthesiologist who can regulate the relaxing effect of sedation during the procedure. Both relaxing medicine and pain medication are used as medicine.

After sedation, the patient can go home with an escort after a few hours. After sedation, you cannot drive a car during the next day.

General anesthesia

General anesthesia may be necessary, for example, due to the long duration of the procedure, the scope of the treatment or its nature. Anesthesia can also be used when it is a small child or a person with a strong fear of treatment.

General anesthesia is carried out efficiently and safely with modern drugs, following an individual treatment plan by an anesthesiologist.

Recovery from anesthesia takes a while, but often the patient can go home 1-2 hours after the procedure with an escort. Driving is only allowed 24 hours after general anesthesia.
