How Gentle Dentistry in Hollywood, FL Can Help Your Dental Anxiety
Yes, You Can Relax During Dental Treatment!
Not too many years ago, dental treatment could be a rough experience. Now, thanks to modern technologies, treatments and techniques, dentistry is state-of-the-art. Dentists and the services they provide are now gentle, calming treatments. Dr. Peretz at Great Hollywood Smiles in Hollywood, FL is a gentle, caring dentist committed to providing you with a wonderful dental experience.
Your dentist has a gentle, calming touch. He understands your fears and is committed to providing you with an anxiety-free appointment. Along with his caring chairside skills, he uses modern technologies like air-abrasion, today’s modern alternative to the dental drill. Air abrasion can be used for many dental procedures. The elimination of drilling sounds can make a huge difference to your ears and your confidence.
In addition to air abrasion, your dentist offers a full range of sedation methods. Consider:
- Local anesthetic, if you just want the area of treatment numb, and you still want to be fully aware of treatment
- Oral sedation, taken in pill form; you will feel calm and relaxed, but still able to respond. Halcion or Valium is often used to achieve a desired level of sedation.
- Inhaled conscious sedation, using nitrous oxide and oxygen, inhaled through a face mask; you will be calm and relaxed, but still able to respond. The effects of this type of sedation leave your body very quickly. Inhaled conscious sedation can often be combined with oral sedation to increase the overall sedative effect.
- Intravenous conscious sedation, if you want to be completely asleep during your dental appointment; you will wake up feeling refreshed and your dental work will be completed without you remembering treatment.
A gentle dentist like your dentist in Hollywood can make all the difference. He and his caring staff are committed to helping you relax and feel great about visiting the dentist. You deserve to get needed dental work completed in an anxiety-free, pain-free environment, your own dental oasis!
