Is there anything you can do if I am nervous about going to the dentist?
Be sure to talk to us if you are feeling nervous about coming in to the dentist.
We have nitrous oxide (also called laughing gas) available, and we can also prescribe a medication to help you relax prior to your visit. It also often helps to know just what is planned in terms of treatment, so be sure you talk to us ahead of time so you fully understand what you will be experiencing. Often the anticipation of the scheduled treatment is much worse than the treatment itself! We are happy to talk you through it in advance of your care.
Keep in mind too that we offer some high-tech options to help make your visit much more comfortable. For example, we offer the Comfort Control Syringe and a topical gel to minimize any discomfort from injections so there is no need to worry about pain. The Comfort Control Syringe controls the amount of medicine being administered, and unbeknownst to most people, the medicine is actually the source of discomfort when it comes to injections, not the needle!
If you will be having treatment for gum disease, we are happy to offer soft tissue laser therapy. This minimizes the need for surgery when treating advanced gum disease, and it also means the healing process is faster.
