Today we want to show you how you can erase your dental fear. If you’re afraid of the dentist, we’re not offended. We understand it can be intimidating to have someone working on your mouth. But we also have an obligation to give you quality dental care and to make you as comfortable as possible.
Here are some ways we can help you:
Using Advanced Technology For Better Smile
Better technology means that you’ll achieve better results. If you walk into a dental office and notice that everything looks outdated, that dentist may not be keeping up with the latest changes in dentistry. Our office has. We are using digital technology, including digital X-rays and even a cone beam CT scanner. These devices emit less radiation than traditional X-rays and give us precise images for diagnosing dental problems and planning treatments.
The cone beam CT scanner provides 3-D images of the oral cavity and teeth. The 3-D images are especially helpful when we’re planning procedures like placing dental implants because we can find the most optimal location for the implant — which increases the success of the procedure.
Additionally, we’re using tools like our intraoral camera to take pictures of the mouth to educate patients about needed treatments or even better oral hygiene practices.
Ease Your Fear With Sedation
It’s estimated that about 20 percent of Americans struggle with dental fear. Sometimes that means they will avoid the dentists, but other times that means they’ll white knuckle throughout their treatments. To help you feel at east at the dentist, we’re offering relaxing dental services.
One of our methods is oral sedation. For this form of sedation, we write you a prescription to use before you visit the dentist. We find that this sedation works for most of our nervous patients. The oral sedation will help you relax in the chair, which also makes it ideal for patients who need longer appointments.
If you have dental fear or anxiety, don’t let your fear dictate your dental treatment. You can give us a call today at 603-546-7460 to schedule your treatment.
