Reducing Patient Anxiety

Although patients may feel self-conscious about their anxiety, dental anxiety is actually quite common. At Dr. Rosenfeld’s office, we work with you to ensure you feel comfortable the moment you arrive. 

Our friendly team greets you at the door and can show the different patient amenities that may help you feel more relaxed. If you are still feeling anxious about your treatment, sedation services are available to make your visit more pleasant. 

Our Conscious Sedation Techniques

One of the methods we use for sedation is administered orally via tablet. Typically, the tablet is taken an hour before the treatment so that you can feel comfortable and so you won’t experience sensitivity or tension. If you choose oral sedation, you will need to have a family member or friend bring you to the office and take you home after your appointment.

Sedation With Laughing Gas

Another popular sedation method we use is laughing gas. This technique uses a light breathing device that is placed over your nose. We recommend laughing gas for patients who need to drive to and from their own appointments. Laughing leaves your bloodstream quickly, allowing you to travel safely.

Beyond Sedation: Feeling Totally Comfortable in a Safe and Caring Environment

Sedation dentistry helps alleviate dental anxiety and can help you or a family member before and during a treatment session with Dr. Rosenfeld. Patients who utilize dental sedation:

  • Experience reduced anxiety before, during, and after their appointment.
  • Often do not remember the details of their treatment, especially with oral sedation.
  • Are still conscious so they can respond to Dr. Rosenfeld during a procedure, but relaxed enough so that they don’t experience pain or anxiety during the treatment.

In addition to medication or tablet sedation and laughing gas, we offer a wide variety of amenities to make your experience comfortable. Our amenities include:

  • Comfortable and warm towels, pillows, and blankets.
  • Music, reading material, and television in the lounge.
  • The latest technology to ensure the best treatment outcome possible.

When you feel relaxed, your treatment can run much more smoothly. We also work hard to ensure your treatment is as efficient and comfortable as possible. You deserve fantastic oral health, and we can help you achieve good oral health and an amazing smile.
