If you’re like the vast majority of people you’re probably at least a little scared about going to see the dentist. We understand, and we want to help you learn how easy and comfortable dental care can be! At Edgewood Dental Care we’ve designed our entire dentist office around great patient care that will make you feel perfectly at ease and anxiety-free!
You might not realize it but dental care has advanced by leaps and bounds in the past few decades. Luckily for you, our patient, much of the explosive growth in dental technology has been based around patient comfort! We’re thrilled to be able to provide you with some of the latest technology and methods to combat fear, anxiety, and dental phobia!
Why Are You Nervous?
For many patients fear of the dentist can be traced back to a bad experience in the past. Whether you had a painful procedure, substandard results, or a rude dentist we want to help you get over those fears! We’re here to help you get great dental care without worry!
How Can We Make Your Stay Better?
From the moment you walk into our Edgewood dentist office you’ll realize it’s not the sterile, white, clinical environment that you might be remembering from years before. We’ve built our office to be comfortable, welcoming, and a great place to visit with your whole family!
For many patients a good dentist would simply be one that makes them feel welcome and like a person instead of a number. We’ve hired a team that places patient satisfaction and wellbeing at the top of our priority list, so you can feel confident in the fact that we’re going to make you feel like part of a dental care family and not just a patient!
To help you feel comfortable we’ll take all the time YOU need to feel comfortable. If you have any questions at all about the care you’re going to receive we’ll explain it until you’re satisfied. We’ll never judge you and there are really no stupid questions at Edgewood Dental Care!
We also strongly believe in a guilt-free environment. Many patients avoid the dentist because they’ve been away for a while already – that’s completely self-defeating! We want you to feel welcome and glad that you’re finally taking control of your oral health. After all, a happy, healthy smile is a fundamental part of good overall health through your entire life!
We’ll never make you feel uncomfortable or attacked about your time away from the dentist or your fears about care. You won’t find anything other than understanding and compassion at our Edgewood dentist office!
Still Scared? We Can Help!
Many patients simply can’t get over the fear of people probing around in their mouths, and with good reason! If you count yourself among that group of patients you’ll be thrilled to know that we have several levels of sedation available to make your appointment as fear-free as possible!
Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is the most basic level of sedation we offer. It’s delivered through a nosepiece that you wear during your procedure. The best part about nitrous oxide is how quick it takes effect and wears off! You’ll feel relaxed, calm, sleepy, and completely at ease during your procedure and then you’ll feel completely fresh almost as soon as the mask is removed!
Oral sedation is delivered in the form of a pill. This level of sedation is a bit more intense and helps us put you in a deep, tranquil state for your appointment. Even better, oral sedatives have amnesic effects, meaning that you won’t remember your procedure at all – you’ll just be able to enjoy your great smile!
IV sedation is the highest level we offer. It’s the same as “twilight sedation” at the hospital, and leaves you awake but mostly unaware of what’s going on. You’ll be able to respond to our commands but will otherwise be completely asleep!
