Enjoying Comfort Dentistry

relaxedwomangrassIf you think of dental care as something you need to suffer through, think again. We offer a variety of solutions to ensure you feel comfortable and at ease throughout your visit, whether you are simply coming to see us for a checkup, or if you require more advanced treatment. Wondering what this entails? Look through the following amenities and options you have for a clearer understanding of how comfort dentistry may improve your experience:

We Take A Gentle Approach

Rather than relying on manual instruments alone, we have thoughtfully selected systems and tools that will promote your comfort while you visit us. First, this may include the use of pre-injection anesthetic or numbing solutions to numb your gum tissue. Or, for patients who prefer to avoid needles, we may offer a rapid-onset topical anesthetic – this is a form of comfort dentistry we commonly use for patients who require a deep cleaning.

We Provide Sedation

Worried that though you would like to schedule an appointment with us, you suffer from dental anxiety too great to even come in for a cleaning? Or perhaps you don’t mind dental visits, you just feel anxious about certain procedures. Regardless of the cause or the severity of your hesitation, we encourage you to discuss our sedation options with us. By providing nitrous oxide or oral sedation, we often make dental care a reality rather than something that you feel is essential but simply cannot bring yourself to access.

Fortunately, both nitrous oxide (also called laughing gas) and oral sedation are needle-free. This means even patients with a phobia of injections can achieve the deep relaxation they desire during appointments without worrying about how the sedation is administered. If you have questions regarding comfort dentistry and your candidacy, we invite you to call our office, so a friendly team member may guide you toward the appropriate solution.
