In order to maintain the brightest, healthiest smile you possibly can, you need to practice good dental hygiene every day. We all know this. Brushing and flossing while rinsing with a fluoride mouthwash will ensure that you are doing your best to keep your smile healthy and white. But that isn’t all we need have our optimal smile – we need to visit the dentist on a regular basis. Because only our dental professional can make sure we have the best smile we can. Unfortunately, many patients are quite frightened about this task, and avoid it at all costs. Don’t worry – you aren’t alone, but there is no reason to have this fear. There are lots of ways dental professionals are giving their patients a wonderful experience.
Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. Sedation is most appropriate for people with a real fear or anxiety that is preventing them from going to the dentist. Things like Anesthetic and relaxant gas are especially used for patients who:
- have a low pain threshold
- can’t sit still in the dentist’s chair
- have very sensitive teeth
- have a bad gag reflex
- need a large amount of dental work completed
But our top-notch accommodations aren’t just for our skittish patients – all of our patients will receive the best treatment we can possibly provide. This includes patient comforts, such as blankets, headphones, Netflix movies and a coffee & juice bar to make your dental experience the best it can possibly be. So, there is no longer a need to dodge the dental chair – your peace of mind is just as important to us as your dental health.
