Get Help & Stay Comfortable During Treatment
At MODERN BITE DENTISTRY, we know that seeing the dentist probably isn’t your idea of a good time. But your dental health is important, and if you have dental anxiety, you may be intimidated or scared of the idea of seeing Dr. Shaggy, even for a basic treatment like a teeth cleaning and oral exam.
We get it. Which is why we offer understanding care, sedation with laughing gas, and a comfortable, relaxing dental environment. Get more details about how we cater to patients with dental anxiety below, or contact us now to schedule an appointment.
Dealing With Dental Anxiety
Our Tips & Recommendations
The best tip we have is to see a dentist who is willing to listen to your concerns and anxieties, like Dr. Shaggy. Being able to be open and honest about your past dental experiences and discussing your fears and triggers will make it a lot easier to get the dental care you need.
Once you discuss your anxiety with Dr. Shaggy, she can make recommendations to ensure you feel safe and comfortable during your appointment. For example, if you don’t like the sound of dental drills, she can provide you with a set of noise-canceling headphones to wear.
Or, if you don’t like feeling out of control during your appointment, Dr. Shaggy can speak to you throughout the procedure and ask for your approval to move on after each step. No matter why you don’t like seeing the dentist, we can adjust your treatment to help.
Laughing Gas Sedation
Relax During Your Appointment
Laughing gas sedation is an excellent way to relax and stay calm during your appointment, and we offer sedation with laughing gas during every appointment at MODERN BITE DENTISTRY.
With laughing gas, you’ll feel more relaxed. Along with local numbing, laughing gas also ensures you won’t feel any pain or discomfort during your procedure. You’ll just feel happy and calm, which lets you get through your procedure without any difficulties.
Best of all, laughing gas sedation wears off after only a few minutes, and its side effects are limited to headaches, dizziness, and minor confusion. Some patients may also feel a little nauseated, but these symptoms will go away quickly. This means you can drive yourself home or even back to work, and get back to your day-to-day routine.
Get The Care You Need
In Our Comforting Office
At MODERN BITE DENTISTRY, we’re doing our best to provide a comfortable, modern experience for our patients. It’s in our name, after all! That’s why we’ve invested in lots of great amenities for our patients, including televisions with Netflix in every room, noise-canceling headphones, and weighted blankets and neck pillows for your comfort.
We can even provide you with a warm towel for a spa-like experience, and a refreshing beverage once your treatment is done. These are just a few of the small ways we’re making it easier to get the dental care you need without fear, intimidation, or anxiety.
