Comfort and Sedation
We’ll make your treatments comfortable
Your comfort is a top priority for Dr. Ovadia and Dr. Tanur. We do everything we can to put you at ease and make the dental procedure as pain-free and easy on you as possible.
Friendly and attentive care
Our friendly staff will rapidly take care of your needs and will make sure your appointments are efficient and pleasant. You can come to them any time with a question or concern.
Our doctors will put you at ease
Dr. Tanur and Dr. Ovadia are very caring and will always listen to your concerns and answer all your questions. They will take the time to show you the results of their examinations in detail. They will thoroughly explain your treatment options so you know what to expect and can feel at ease.
Comfort amenities to help you relax
We have TV and coffee in reception for you when you come in. During treatment we provide blankets and pillows for added comfort while you are in the chair.
Minimally invasive treatment
A major way we reduce discomfort is by using advanced technology and minimally invasive treatment procedures wherever possible.
Dental laser for gentle gum treatment
We use dental lasers for gentle gum disease treatment and cosmetic gum procedures.
Growth proteins for faster healing
We utilize a revolutionary treatment to aid your healing process. This PRF (platelet rich fibrins) treatment uses certain proteins which accelerate the growth of human tissue and speed healing, many of which are in human blood. We apply a very concentrated formula of growth proteins to our surgically treated areas to accelerate healing and regenerate strong tissue. These proteins also reduce inflammation and post-operative discomfort.
Ultrasonic scalers for gentle cleaning
Our ultrasonic scalers use sound vibrations to gently strip away the plaque and accumulated calculus below the gumline. They are gentler on your teeth than conventional scaling instruments and can be adjusted for patient comfort.
Injections that minimize discomfort
We warm the anesthetic to body temperature so there is no shock to the body when it is administered. We apply a topical anesthetic to the point of injection so there is no sensation and then gently deliver the anesthetic in a way that minimizes any discomfort.
For patients who need extra help to relax, we offer several sedation options. The doctor will recommend the option that will best suit your needs.
Nitrous oxide is a colorless, odorless gas that you inhale during the procedure. This reduces tension and anxiety. The effects of the gas wear off quickly after you cease to inhale it. To make the recovery time even faster, we give you pure oxygen to inhale immediately after we terminate the nitrous oxide.
In oral sedation, we give you a sedative pill to help you relax. The sedative puts you in a twilight-like sleep where you can still respond to communications from the doctor.
IV sedation is a more controllable sedation as the volume of sedative can be regulated for strength as it is being administered. For IV sedation, a board certified Medical Anesthesiologist will be used to administer and monitor the sedation during the procedure.
