Make Fear Of The Dentist A Thing Of The Past

Welcome to the Gentle Dental Care blog!

Are you looking for a compassionate dentist who can deliver a comprehensive range of services in a comfortable setting? Then look no further!

It’s alright if you have been away from the dentist for a while, we can help get you back on the good road. We know that when you suffer from any level of dental anxiety, it can be a real challenge for you to get here at all. But by not dealing with your oral health issues now, you will only be making it worse for your future self! We don’t want that for you.

Avoid Bigger Problems!

It is common knowledge that professional teeth cleanings can help you keep plaque and tartar from creating unhealthy situations in your mouth, the kind that are painful and costly to clean up!

You also need to know if any gum disease or cavities are emerging so that these things can be addressed the easy way. And another thing you wouldn’t want to go too long without is an oral cancer screening. It really is a silent killer.

So, take heart, because our team can get you the care you need. We think you’ll like our welcoming environment and you don’t have to worry about what awaits you here. After all, we are the “gentle” dental practice in central Connecticut!

We do our best to make preventative dentistry and all of our other dental treatments pain-free and pleasant by offering sedation dentistry options customized to fit your unique needs.

And you can trust that you’ll be in good hands during your visit! As you can imagine, sedation dentistry requires extensive training and expertise on our part in order to be able to handle the many issues that could come up, and to keep you safe at all times.

Plus, at Gentle Dental Care, we have hospital-grade technology and monitoring equipment to help us keep an eye on all the different things that are going on in your body. And when we have a sedation procedure in process, we always have at least three people in the room; Dr. Peltzer and two assistants.

Try Sedation Dentistry For A More Pleasant Experience!

Around here, we can provide sedation whenever you need to undergo an invasive procedure or deal with your fear of the dentist. There are three types of sedation offering different levels of relaxation:

Inhalation Sedation: This type of sedation is the most frequently used of the three. It involves the use of nitrous oxide (aka: laughing gas) to normalize your bodily functions and relax you for the dental treatment.

Oral Sedation: If your treatment is non-invasive and you only have mild dental fear, you may settle for an orally administered form of sedation. We will give you a pill that you have to take prior to your operation. And you’ll want to line-up a ride home!

Intravenous Sedation: If your treatment is invasive or you have severe dental fear, you may count on this intravenous sedation to make things easier for you. This form of sedation is administered by injecting the sedative into your bloodstream. The result is immediate and you may relax almost instantly. Dr. Peltzer has the distinct honor of having been awarded a State of Connecticut Intravenous (IV) Conscious Sedation permit. This is a rare achievement and distinction for a general dentist in our region.
