How do you help anxious patients?
If you have dental anxiety, our Troutdale dentists can help. Often, dental fear stems from an early childhood experience that was frightening or painful. You will be happy to know that dentistry has come a long way since then, and patient comfort is now a priority in family dental practices.
An Experienced, Caring Team
We hope to show you the new face of dentistry. Not only is our team helpful, kind, and compassionate, but their experience also helps you feel confident about your care. We use the latest technology to show you your teeth and explain treatment options so that you feel fully informed and know what to expect.
We will make sure you are properly anesthetized for every procedure and will never get started before you are completely comfortable. We can take breaks throughout your appointment if you need to stretch, ask questions, or want a drink of water.
Sedation Dentistry for Nervous Patients
For patients who want a little additional help relaxing, we offer nitrous oxide sedation. Nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, provides a mild form of sedation. We administer the sedative through a small nose mask and can control the levels of sedation throughout your visit. Once we stop the flow of gas, the sedative quickly leaves the body, and you will be able to drive yourself home from your dental appointment.
