If you have severe dental fear or anxiety, you are not alone, and we are here to help. At Pristine Dental we understand that for some the fear and anxiety can prevent them from seeking dental care. For this reason, we offer several options to make your dental experience as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible.
Dental fear and anxiety are common issues and should be handled with the utmost understanding and care.
When patients are affected by dental phobia a regular cleaning can cause the same anxiety as a complex restorative procedure. Depending on the level of fear or anxiety we have options available to ease your fears and create positive dental experiences for you from here forward.
Minimal Sedation Options: We offer Nitrous Oxide during your treatment which does not require you to have a driver accompany you to your appointment.
Or we can provide prescription medication which you take prior to treatment to help you relax both before and during your appointment. Although you are completely conscious with prescription sedation, you will need to have a friend or family member drive you to and from your appointment with us.
Moderate and Deep Sedation Options: Our caring team has taken additional training to provide deeper sedation options in our office. We offer twilight IV sedation and general anesthesia for those who need it.
No matter what level of anxiety you have about dental treatment our primary goal is to communicate that we understand and to do everything possible to keep you as comfortable as possible and to hopefully change how you view coming to the dentist.
