Will my treatment hurt?
If you get nervous when you think about dental visits, you’re not alone. Dental anxiety is very common and affects millions of people.
At Filson Gentle Dentistry, we have many ways to keep you comfortable during your treatment. First, when you’re with us, we’re completely focused on you and your needs. We’ll encourage and support you so that you feel secure and at ease.
Before we begin treatment, we’ll make sure that your mouth is numb and you don’t feel any discomfort. We don’t want you to feel stressed, so if we can’t get you numb on the day of your procedure, we will reschedule it for another day.
We encourage you to talk to us about your concerns. Sometimes just talking about your feelings can help lessen your anxiety. When we know that you’re anxious, we can also adjust your treatment accordingly.
Our sedation options include nitrous oxide and oral and IV sedation. Each of these has their own benefits, and we’ll make sure we select the one that addresses all your needs. We also offer amenities like music, TVs, and blankets and pillows to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
Don’t let stress about dental visits compromise your oral health. Please call our office to arrange a consultation with Dr. Filson or Dr. Hei. We’ll sit down and listen to your concerns so we can find the right solution for you.
