We provide sensory comforts.
Different aspects of dental visits trigger fear in different patients. For example, some find the noises of dental instruments unsettling. For these patients, we’re happy to offer earbuds and a music player to block out the dental noises. Others find that their anxiety makes them feel chilled. In this situation, our team members are ready with a soft, comforting blanket. Still, others may need the music and the blanket. In short, by comforting some of your senses, we can help turn down the level of anxiety you’re experiencing through our relaxation dentistry practices.
We can provide gentle sedation with any and all dental treatments.
Even with sensory comforts and gentle dentists, some patients still need a little more help to calm their nerves. Hence, we can offer nitrous oxide with all dental procedures. Nitrous oxide is an odorless gas that when inhaled, helps people relax. Although you are fully conscious with this type of gentle sedation, you’ll feel less tense and worried. Some compare the feeling to having a couple glasses of wine. However, once we turn off the delivery of the gas, the effects quickly fade. As a result, you’re safe to drive yourself home after using nitrous oxide for your dental procedure.
