What Is Gentle Family Dentistry?

It’s an effective way that dental clinics use to remove stress from your or your loved one’s dental appointment. We understand that going to the dentist can cause a level of anxiety in some patients. We do our utmost to reduce these unpleasant feelings through gentle dentistry for every member of your family.

What does this involve? First, we create a welcoming dental office environment to help you feel relaxed and at home. When you interact with our dentists and our staff members, you’ll be treated with courtesy and respect. And, just as important, we employ techniques that reduce discomfort during your dental procedure. This is what gentle dentistry is about, and you can be sure that whether you come in for general dentistry, pediatric dentistry, or any type of emergency services, we will provide quality, affordable dental care and use gentle dentistry techniques your whole family can benefit from.

Our Dental Clinic’s Approach to Gentle Dentistry

In addition to creating a welcoming space and treating everyone in a positive manner, we accomplish gentle dentistry through the responsible use of nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. This type of sedation is very effective in creating a more pleasant dental care experience. Our office can offer you or your child nitrous oxide gas to ease any anxiety you may be feeling and help you feel more relaxed. This type of sedation can be combined with local anesthetics for a pain-free, gentle dentistry experience.

Whether For Preventative, Cosmetic, Or Emergency Dentistry

Preventative dental care may include dental exams, x-rays, dental cleanings, protective sealants, fluoride treatments, and other dental care offerings. Most individuals don’t require nitrous oxide for preventative treatments, but if you do, you’ll be happy to know that it’s available to you.

Cosmetic dental services can include bonding, bleaching, veneers, crowns, or contouring. Restorative dentistry may also involve crowns, or it can involve tooth repair, dentures, implants, bridges, or other procedures designed to treat dental issues. Many patients find that sedation is very helpful during these types of procedures.

Gentle dentistry through nitrous oxide delivery can also help calm patients who are receiving gum treatment (periodontics) to address and heal advanced gum disease. This safe form of sedation is also available to anyone who needs emergency dental care, such as repairing a broken tooth or addressing pain symptoms related to infection or inflammation.

There is no reason to experience pain, discomfort, or anxiety during your dental care appointment when gentle dentistry approaches such as sedation are available to ease your stress and reduce or eliminate pain and discomfort.
