Hi all. My 15 yr old daughter is terrified of dentists. She's hugely reluctant to see one but has toothache. I think she's been hiding it for a while. Can anyone recommend a Lewes dental practice and / or pain relief method that can help her get the treatment she needs without putting her off dentists for life? Hope someone can help. Thanks.

I can't help but hope someone can. Fear of dentists is very real and terrifying for some people. I think there are gels that can be used before an injection to numb the area?

I'm not sure about a gel but ive had a pad with an apathetic in, they do flavoured ones and you can't feel the injections afterwards. Suggest you take her for checkup, they won't uauallt do work at the same time as appointment not long enough. When you go for the work get there early and ask for the pad to be put in a short while before to give it time to work. If she takes some headphones and plays music and keeps eyes closed should be more than comfortable, don't really feel much pain and music a good distraction. Good luck!

What's a 'phobic'friendly dentist going to do as opposed to a dentist? I think most dentists would be sympathetic to your daughters plight . Have a chat with them first.

I can very warmly recommend the High St Dental Practice. I'm quite dentist phobic so I can absolutely understand your daughter's fears, and they were really lovely. I saw Katie who was really patient and understanding.

My dentist is in Lewes and, like just about all modern practitioners, is extremely well-trained in pain avoidance, and is happy to take into account your daughter's fear. Neither me nor anyone in my family has experienced a moment's pain beside the strange feeling of the initial injections, which quickly subsides. I believe you will be very safe at any dentist in this town, and am sure your daughter can accept treatment with confidence. That's been my experience, and I'm very fussy.
