We understand the fear that some people have about visiting their dental professional. It’s more common than you may think, and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about. Here at Johns Family & Implant Dentistry, we aim to do everything that we can to make our patients feel more comfortable.
If the noise of drills makes you crazy, we have noise cancelling headphones. We can provide a personalized streaming music service, and we have a large selection of movies to choose from if you would rather watch something.
We always offer coffee, tea and water to those in the waiting room, along with a cookie bar! Once you’re in the hot seat, we have massaging chairs, blankets and neck pillows to put you at ease (and maybe even asleep!).
For those looking for a more intensive relaxation, we offer sedation dentistry in several forms. IV conscious sedation will allow you to feel like you’re asleep, while maintaining the ability to answer simple questions. It will leave you with little to no memory of the procedure. Oral sedation involves taking a sedative by mouth 30 minutes to an hour before the procedure. And finally, nitrous oxide gas may be administered to “take the edge off” – an easy way to feel more relaxed during your procedure and from which you can recover in a short 5 to 10 minutes.
We hope that these services can help those suffering from dental anxiety to take the leap and come to see a dentist while still feeling relaxed and calm.
