We Comfort You & Your Family

If you want to talk in-depth about a treatment, that’s fine! Dr. Swartzentruber and our team are happy to discuss anything you wish during an extended appointment. Longer appointments are also provided so you can take breaks during treatment if you like. No pressure, no stress, no rush – your peace of mind comes first.

We also offer pillows, headphones, and TVs in our operatories. Sometimes it’s the little things that help the most, like just being able to zone out with music or favorite shows!

Aside from eliminating pain with local anesthesia, dental sedation helps you fully relax even if you’re afraid of being in a dentist’s chair:

  • Laughing gas is inhaled and soothes you during your procedure. It wears off shortly after your treatment so you can feel normal throughout the rest of the day.
  • Oral conscious sedation is taken in pill form before your appointment. It puts you in a barely awake state so you can still communicate with us but feel no anxiety at all. You’ll need someone to drive you to and from our office.

Our Technology Saves Time & Enhances Comfort

In addition to offering creature comforts, we use the latest and most comfortable dental technology to:

  • Fully examine your mouth with digital X-rays, which are safer than traditional X-rays, to ensure you receive the most beneficial treatments in the least amount of time
  • Treat your gums with laser technology, which works much faster, is more precise, and reduces bleeding as compared to traditional gum treatment
  • Detect cavities early using DIAGNOdent technology, which can prevent you from experiencing dental pain due to decay

Common Questions About Relieving Dental Anxiety

What can you do to relieve dental anxiety?

Our experienced team is fully trained to listen to all your needs and answer all your questions so that you’re completely comfortable. If there’s anything you need to help ease your nerves, just let us know and we’ll do what we can to help. We also offer two forms of dental sedation to eliminate your anxiety, inhaled sedation with laughing gas and oral sedation using a small pill.

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

To help reduce your anxiety before you arrive at our office, you can practice taking a few deep breaths to help you relax anytime you start to feel anxious. Usually six to 10 deep breaths will help lower your pulse and help you feel more relaxed. You can also try picturing yourself in the dental chair, lying back fully relaxed while we’re working on your smile.

Can anti-anxiety medication help me relax at the dentist?

For some patients, this is the best option for overcoming dental anxiety. It might also help a patient get through a difficult or long procedure. If you are staying away from the dentist out of fear, call us to talk about all of your options for a comfortable procedure.
