Our goal is to provide you with the most advanced care in a relaxed and safe environment. To achieve this, we use the most current periodontal procedures, instruments, medications, and sterilization techniques.
Every procedure is done with your comfort and safety in mind. We work closely with your general dentist to ensure you get the best possible care. We want you to be completely informed of your condition and encourage you to ask any questions you may have regarding your treatment and care. Please feel free to ask questions before, during, or after any procedure.
We go to great lengths to minimize any discomfort you might feel. The following are some of the latest techniques we use to provide you with as comfortable an experience as possible.
Patient comfort is one of the most important aspects of care. Different patients have different needs for discomfort and anxiety control medication. Depending upon the procedure and your wishes, we will make your visites as relaxed as possible. Our staff is very professional and accomodating to the needs of our guests.
Injections of Anesthesia
In the past, injections of dental anesthesia by others may have been uncomfortable. We recognize this and take extra care when preparing a patient for anesthetic. We use a topical ointment on your gums first and then administer the injection very slowly and precisely to reduce the burning sensation that can be experienced. These techniques ensure our patients have minimal, if any, discomfort during this portion of care.
Sedation and Anesthesia
For those patients who would feel more comfortable with sedation, we offer a full range of services. Nitrous oxide and oral sedatives can be given to help you relax during treatment.
Your comfort is one of our primary concerns. If you have any questions about anesthesia or sedation, please do not hesitate to discuss these with us.
We take patient safety very seriously and adhere to the highest professional standards of cleanliness, sterilization, and radiation control. Our staff regularly attend safety seminars and are quite knowledgeable on the latest techniques.
We know that preventing the spread of infectious diseases such as AIDS, herpes, hepatitis and even the cold virus is critical and our team takes sterilization very seriously. We use extensive sterilization procedures, going well beyond the guidelines recommended by the American Dental Association and Centers for Disease Control.
We use barrier techniques such as disposable masks and gloves and replace them with every new patient. Each piece of fixed operatory equipment is wiped-down with antibacterial solution prior to every clinical procedure. Sterile water delivery systems are utilized. We use autoclave sterilization for all instruments prior to dental examination and treatment. You can be assured that our staff have been specifically trained on sterilization procedures and their importance.
Post Treatment Instructions
After treatment, home care and medication instructions will be thoroughly explained. For your convenience, you will also be given printed instructions. Of course, we are always available for questions after treatment.
