What is dental anxiety in Manchester?
A dental phobia is a severe form of dental anxiety and can result in not seeing the dentist at all and missing out on important dental treatment.
Avoiding the dentist may mean you develop more problems with your teeth which in turn makes you more frightened of going to see the dentist. This cycle of fear can lead to more dental problems and potentially more expensive treatment.
Nervous patients can develop a dental anxiety or dental phobia for different reasons. For some it’s the smell of the dental surgery. For others it’s the fear of pain or needles. Some patients may have had a bad experience. Other nervous patients cannot explain their dental anxiety.
At YOR Dental in Salford Quays, our team are here to help. We are extremely caring and sympathetic to nervous patients and have had much experience in helping patients from Salford, Trafford, Salford Quays, and throughout Manchester.

How does YOR Dental help nervous patients?
We believe that everyone is entitled to dental care and so we work with you to make your experience a pleasant one.
Our friendly and sympathetic team will spend time talking to you – on the phone at first if you can’t come to the dental surgery. We will reassure you and build up your trust to meet us in person.
Time and pace:
We will take the time to help understand your fear and find out what we can do to help. Some nervous patients like to feel in control by finding out every detail of the process, other nervous patients like to wear headphones and listen to music.
We are with you at every stage, and we will only ever go at your pace. You are always in control, and we can stop at any point.
At YOR Dental we are renown for our luxury spa-like environment. We aim to create an atmosphere that is relaxed, comfortable and that will put you at ease.
If you find that you need extra help to complete your treatment, we can give you intravenous sedation.
During intravenous or IV sedation, a sedative is injected in a controlled manner to help you feel relaxed. This type of procedure can produce a mild form of amnesia which enables you to forget about your dental visit. For more information about sedation, speak to our knowledgeable team.
