Get the care you need, comfortably
If you are one of millions of Americans suffering from some form of dental anxiety, your Rochester dentists at White Spruce Dental want you to know that you are not alone, and that your concerns will be taken seriously. We are happy to offer sedation options for those who are hesitant about their dental appointment, to help our patients get the care they need in a way that is relaxed and comfortable.
Nothing to fear
One of our primary goals at White Spruce Dental is to minimize the fear and anxiety that many patients associate with dentistry. The first step in doing so is ensuring you that our doctors and staff possess the skills and expertise necessary to perform safe and effective dental treatments. We are dedicated to continuing education and advanced specialized training to bring our patients the best solutions dentistry has to offer.
Better technology means better dentistry. At White Spruce Dental, we have invested in the most current dental technology that makes procedures less invasive, less painful, minimizes recovery time, and time spent in the dental chair. Procedures that used to require multiple appointments can now be performed in just one visit.
Nitrous sedation, commonly known as laughing gas, comes in the form of a gas combined with oxygen that you breathe through a mask to help you relax. You will start to notice the effects immediately – you will feel relaxed, comfortable, lethargic, maybe even euphoric, and you might even get the giggles. You will remain awake and conscious throughout the entire appointment so you will be able to respond to the doctor with any questions you may have. The effects will wear off shortly and you will be able to drive yourself home from your appointment, knowing that you made the right decision for your oral health.
We also offer oral sedation, which comes in the form of a prescription pill you will take about an hour before your appointment. You will need to arrange for transportation to and from your appointment.
If you still have reservations about your dental appointment, don’t worry, we’ll be with you every step of the way. Our doctors and staff are compassionate and will take each of your concerns into consideration, and guide you through the treatment plan and procedure so you know exactly what’s happening.
If you have any questions about sedation dentistry, or would like to schedule an appointment with your Rochester dentist, Dr. Nozik or Dr. Tumminelli at White Spruce Dental, please contact us today at 585.424.5120.
