If you aren’t really comfortable visiting the dentist’s office, you’ll be less likely to visit as often as you should, which can raise your risks of developing a serious dental issue. At our Fuquay Varina family dentist’s office, our entire approach to dental care is centered on you, the patient, and making you as comfortable as you are confident in the dental care we provide.
An Office that Feels Like Home
Waiting for anything is rarely fun, let alone waiting to receive dental treatment. However, it doesn’t have to be a tedious experience. Our office is equipped with a number of amenities designed to keep you comfortable and connected to the world during your visit, such as;
- Warm “comfort blankets” to keep you cozy
- Scented face towels to keep you pleasantly refreshed
- TVs and music to keep you entertained
- Free WiFi to keep you in touch with friends, family, and work
Our facility is also immaculately kept and handicap-accessible to make it easier for everyone to visit!
Advanced Local Anesthetics
When you think of comfortable dentistry, your thoughts might drift more towards the treatment than the office setting. Local anesthetics are an important part of many dental procedures, but many patients are uneasy about receiving injections. If you prefer, we offer a number of strong, but gentle, topical anesthetics that are potent enough to numb your oral tissues without the need for a needle.
Dental Sedation to Relax Your Nerves
Aside from managing discomfort with anesthesia, we also provide a choice of dental sedation options for patients who suffer from dental phobia, or are simply anxious about the prospect of an extensive procedure. Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is inhaled through a mask worn over the nose, and offers nearly-immediate affects that dissipate just as quickly once you’re done.
For more comprehensive relaxation, we might suggest oral sedation, taken in a pill form, just before your visit. Both dental sedation techniques are safe and effective, and offer different levels of sedation to meet each patient’s distinct needs.
