There are millions of Americans who feel anxious or nervous about going to the dentist. An estimated 9 to 15% of those with dental anxiety fail to get treatment as a result. Our friendly doctors and staff make it a top priority to keep your visits as comfortable and pain-free as possible by providing comfort amenities, sedation dentistry and minimally invasive treatments.
Friendly and caring doctors and staff
Getting all your questions answered and fully understanding what is involved in your dental treatment can help reduce anxiety. Our staff are never too busy to answer a question. Dr. Tanur and Dr. Ovadia will take the needed time to address any questions or concerns. They thoroughly explain dental procedures so that you know what to expect.
Amenities to keep you comfortable
We provide TV and coffee in our reception area for your enjoyment. We also offer you blankets and pillows to help you relax while you are in the chair.
Sedation dentistry allows you to stay relaxed during treatment with the help of a drug, either in the form of a pill or through an IV. We offer oral and IV sedation for those patients needing help with anxiety, or for long procedures.
With oral sedation you will be given a pill that will make you feel sleepy and relaxed. You will remain awake enough to follow the doctor’s instructions. IV sedation provides a deeper level of sedation that can be adjusted for strength while it is being administered. The doctor will decide which form of sedation is most appropriate for you.
Minimally invasive treatment
We use advanced technology and minimally invasive treatment to keep you relaxed and comfortable and to promote faster healing.
- Dental laser – We use a dental laser to provide gentle treatment for gum disease as well as cosmetic gum procedures.
- Ultrasonic scaler for gentle cleaning – Our ultrasonic scaler removes the majority of the plaque and calculus from your teeth. Ultrasonic scalers clean more thoroughly than traditional instruments, and they are more comfortable for patients.
- Faster healing with growth proteins – There are proteins in our blood that are known as “growth factors.” These growth factors help stimulate the growth of new tissue and aid healing. We apply a very concentrated formula of growth proteins to areas that have been surgically treated to speed up healing and regenerate strong tissue. Applying growth proteins reduces inflammation and lessens post-operative discomfort.
- Comfortable injections – We warm the anesthetic to body temperature so that the body does not experience shock when it is administered. A topical anesthetic is first administered at the point of the injection so there is no sensation. We then gently deliver the anesthetic in a way that minimizes any discomfort.
