With Sedation Dentistry There Is Nothing To Fear

Welcome back to our oral health blog!

At Gentle Dental Care, our team provides preventative cleanings and exams, cosmetic dentistry, dental implant surgery, and a whole lot more for the families of Plainville, Connecticut.

We also offer sedation dentistry services for folks who are anxious or fearful of visiting the dentist.

There is a reason we call ourselves Gentle Dental Care, after all!

It’s OK To Be Nervous

Some people have more anxiety than others.

And the fact is that doctors and dentists can make people nervous.

This is probably because our health is so important, yet it is something that we don’t like to think about unless we see signs that something is wrong.

If dental appointments make you anxious or fearful, then you are not alone.

In fact, that makes you a lot like a significant portion of the American population who share your reservations.

It’s alright to be anxious.

Trust us, lots of people in Plainville, CT are right there with you.

We won’t take it personally if you are afraid of us at first!

But it really is not in your best interest to avoid dental care altogether.

You can only do so much on your own to prevent disease and decay.

We Are Here To Help

At Gentle Dental Care, our professional cleanings can rid your mouth of any lingering bacteria, tartar, and plaque that would otherwise cause damage.

What’s more, letting us have a look around every six months or so will help us stay on top of any issues that might be developing in your mouth.

It is unlikely that you would be able to self-diagnose the early (and reversible) stages of gum disease, or see the tiny holes that decay creates initially.

If you let those things run wild, you might be dealing with root canals, extractions, and artificial replacements for your natural teeth.

By the way, do you know how to screen yourself for oral cancer?

We didn’t think so.

But that’s why we’re here.

In spite of what you may have been conditioned to think, our role is not to cause you more grief.

Our mission is to keep you healthy and save you from unnecessary pain and expense down the road.

Forget About The Past

Do you remember having a less than ideal dentistry experience at some time in your past?

Did you have an unkind or demanding dentist as a child?

Perhaps you have gone through a traumatic dental procedure without adequate numbing or pain relief.

Whatever has happened to you in the past, we want to make your future dental encounters much more positive with sedation dentistry.

Sedation Dentistry Makes For More Gentle Dental Care

Regardless of what kind of dental treatment you are receiving at our East Street office in Plainville, CT, we can relax you when you get here with nitrous oxide, better known as “laughing gas.”

Because we know that your comfort is no laughing matter, we can assure you that this sedation method is a safe and accepted way of relaxing a mildly fearful patient.

Oral conscious sedation is another good option.

For this method, sedatives are delivered in pill form.

These pills are extremely effective for relaxing our patients.

Beyond that, our Gentle Dental Care office is also able to literally put your fears to rest by putting you to sleep with IV sedation.

Good Health Is Nothing To Fear

At Gentle Dental Care we are serious about restoring your oral health no matter how long you’ve been away from the dentist.

Creating new memories by providing gentle, pain-free dental experiences for our patients is our top priority.

Please let us know how we can help put you at ease.
