Whatever your concern, we’re here to help, not judge.

Here’s how we focus on making you comfortable:

  • Caring StaffOur staff will treat you with compassion throughout your appointment.  We take our time to understand your needs and concerns.
  • Ample Time for Care – We provide plenty of time to explain treatments thoroughly and address any questions you may have.
  • Sedation Options If necessary, choose from our sedation options to ease your nerves. We have oral sedation, laughing gas, and IV sedation.
  • Happy Distractions – Choose from our music selection or bring your own headphones to enjoy soothing melodies during your treatment.
  • Advanced Technology – We use modern equipment, such as digital scanners and intraoral cameras, to plan your treatments easily and precisely. This equipment also enhances your comfort. For example, with digital scanners, we won’t put messy goop in your mouth to take dental impressions.

Because we know being at the dentist brings about a variety of emotions, we’re willing to go the extra mile to reduce your anxiety. Feel free to discuss how we can help during your free consultation with our team.

Common Questions About Relieving Dental Anxiety

Can you help with relieving dental anxiety?

Our team has lots of experience in helping patients overcome their anxious feelings, so they can receive the orthodontic treatment they need. We have created a calming environment to help you relax. We also use patient-friendly technology and techniques to speed your treatment and keep discomfort at a minimum.

Are there steps I can take at home to relieve dental anxiety?

Before your orthodontic appointment, we suggest visualizing a positive experience and practicing deep breathing exercises. You can also visit our office at a quiet time, when other patients may not be around. Ask us about this option when you call us to make your appointment. Share any concerns you have with us beforehand. We can even establish a signal for you to use to indicate if you need a break.

Does laughing gas help with anxiety?

Laughing gas relieves feelings of anxiety for many of our orthodontic patients. It’s inhaled through a small mask worn over your nose. It takes effect very quickly, giving you a relaxed and lightly euphoric sensation. It’s also easy for us to increase or decrease the amount you receive during treatment to maintain the right level of relaxation.
