Anxiety-Free Dental Procedures
Dr. Lee wants every patient’s office experience to be a positive and relaxed one. Patients can benefit from anxiety-free dentistry when…
- Undergoing lengthy treatments
- In need of complex procedures
- Suffering from mild to severe dental anxiety.
If you’re a little embarrassed about your smile or the amount of work you think you might need, the idea of needles or dental treatment gives you anxiety attacks, or the noises and smells overwhelm you – we understand. Dr. Lee’s warm chair-side manner will put you at ease as you discuss your concerns and they’ll never make you feel embarrassed.
Dental fears are nothing to laugh at, but “laughing gas,” just might be the answer to your worries. This sedative is administered through a flexible nosepiece that you breathe through slowly and naturally. You’ll quickly experience a warm, tingly sensation that lets you escape your fears while still remaining aware of what’s going on around you. Once your procedure is completed, the sedative gas will be replaced with oxygen and you’ll be feeling back to normal within minutes.
The Wand is a computerized anesthesia delivery system that takes the discomfort and anxiety out of the numbing process. In fact, many of our patients regard it to be completely pain-free. The extremely small, accurate injection allows us to numb specific areas like single teeth or areas that are a bit more sensitive to work on. Plus, your lips and tongue won’t be numb as a result.
Special Triple Topical Anesthetic
Dr. Lee is great at giving gentle injections, but we know you still don’t want to feel the initial “pinch” that numbing your mouth entails. That’s why we use what we call, a “special, triple topical anesthetic!” The numbing abilities of this topical gel work so well, that in some situations you may not even need to be numbed the old fashioned way. Plus, it wears off after several minutes so that there are no lingering effects.
