Dental phobia is the main reason people put off seeking dental treatment and this means many nervous patients live with discomfort, pain and treatable conditions that can lead to tooth loss and can have a detrimental effect to their overall health. It doesn't have to be this way!
At Smile Essential, we understand that some patients are nervous about visiting the dentist. Fear of the dentist can be caused by unpleasant experiences in the past, the sounds and smells of the dental surgery, or a phobia of needles - which is why we have invested in the pain free injection system, The Wand.
If you haven't visited the dentist in awhile, please don't be embarrassed about the state of your teeth. Our dentists are Dental Phobia certified and their job is to look after your teeth not tell you off! Whatever the reason for your dental anxiety, we will take it very seriously and talk to you in depth about your concerns.
How Smile Essential helps nervous patients
We routinely use a topical gel or spray for all patients to help prevent any pain, and deliver injections of anaesthetic with The Wand. The Wand is a computer-controlled way of delivering anaesthetic that prevents the bee-sting pain associated with traditional injections. It ensures anaesthesia is delivered in a controlled, pain-free manner. For more information about The Wand at Smile Essential dental practice in Leicester, please click here.
We also use meditative breathing techniques to help you control your dental anxiety, and encourage nervous patients to bring a friend or family member along to their dental appointments for support.
We are confident that by working together and ensuring you remain in control at all times, we can help you to overcome your dental fears and give you a smile of which you can be proud. We're delighted to have helped many nervous patients overcome their fears and get the treatment they need.
- Sarah Smile Essential
I didn't want to change my identity, just wanted to look less tired and I feel the wrinkle reduction injections helped me to do this.
- Joesephine Smile Essential
I wanted something enhanced my natural beauty and natural to me means that it is a better version of me, but still is me. I did this for me. It only matters that I see the difference.

I've received so many compliments since my treatment, but what people say: you look good. You look happy.
