Gentle Dentistry

Helping nervous dental patients in Battersea and Clapham Junction.

At the Confidental Clinic, we are aware that visiting any dental practice is not many people’s favourite thing to do in the world, and indeed may be close to the bottom of their list in many cases.

For some patients, it is simply a case of going through with it, knowing that whatever treatment they might have is to their benefit and will be over quickly. For others though, the anxiety runs deeper, and, for some people, can become overwhelming, even causing them to miss their dental appointment.

Early diagnosis

Those missing dental appointments run the risk of a relatively minor issue not being detected which may then evolve into something more significant.

An example of this could be where the enamel of a tooth has become damaged and needs to be filled. This is a simple and relatively comfortable procedure. If ignored though, the tooth is likely to suffer more decay and may need to be extracted if left too long.

Potentially, there is even more at risk, as dental examinations are also an excellent way to detect any potentially early signs of oral cancer, something which is on the rise in the UK with over five thousand people diagnosed each year.

By missing appointments, you could even be putting your health, or possibly even your life, at risk.

When treatment is needed, we will do so in as least an invasive manner as we possibly can.
