In our Seehofer Dental Practice in downtown Munich, we offer patients suffering from dental anxiety or dental phobia a cautious approach without pain and completely free of fear. Make an appointment now!
In an initial consultation, which for anxious patients is initially conducted completely without a treatment chair, we discuss your complaints and fears and answer all your questions about the treatment. This is followed by a careful examination of your teeth and gums in order to plan the further procedure. At the beginning we explain the individual steps of the examination, which is completely painless for you.
Based on the diagnosis, we can now go through various treatment options with you at your leisure. Depending on the severity of the dental findings and on your individual perception of pain, treatment in our dental practice in Lehel can be considered under local anaesthesia, nitrous oxide, twilight sleep or general anaesthesia. In order to choose the treatment that is right for you, we will discuss the possibilities with you in detail. For example, even mild sedatives or relaxing music to block out sounds can make a significant difference to the patient's experience.
Throughout the entire treatment, we accompany you step by step and you always remain in control. You can fully rely on our specialists, who will take care with great empathy to help you get back a beautiful and healthy smile.
