Combining the newest dental technology with a “high touch,” we can truly offer gentle dentistry for all patients–regardless of their past experiences!
For the most comfortable and pleasant visit you have ever experienced, we offer:
• Caring understanding staff & dentist. No scolding or no embarrassment!
• Stereo headphones that help with noise and distraction. We have a great CD selection or you bring your own.
• Wand electronic anesthesia that uses a microprocessor controlled device to deliver the anesthetic. No more “Civil War” era dental syringe! Along with better topical anesthetics, “painless” can’ t be promised-but we are dramatically closer.
• Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) helps many patients “feel they are somewhere else.”
• Advanced laser dentistry provides fast elimination of decay without needles for many patients!
• Oral sedation works wonders with many patients. Often “just a little pill” and many people actually snore though the visit and remember almost nothing! Sedation is appropriate for patients with pronounced dental fear, extreme gagging, embarrassment concerns, or desire to have their dental treatments done in the minimal number of visits.
• IV dental sedation: Patients for whom IV sedation is recommended include:
1) Patients with moderate to severe dental anxiety, who also require longer appointments.
2) Special needs and handicapped patients who need more done during each appointment. Patients who want large amounts of dentistry done per visit and need extra comfort.
3) Patients requiring complex or difficult dental surgery, where discomfort would be greater.
4) People who are naturally difficult to numb and therefore need sedation for effective anesthesia.
5) People who are sensitive to or allergic to conventional anesthetics.
6) Patients susceptible to gagging.
