Dentistry Doesn’t Need to Induce Stress!
At Smiles by Holsinger and Higgins, we’re well aware that many people dread going to the dentist — even fear it! We want our patients to look forward to their appointments, so we have made a concerted effort to make everything about our office and our treatments comfortable.
Our office itself is located on land that allows all treatment rooms to overlook nature. Our reception area features a relaxing fountain, comfortable seating, and coffee and tea — all to put you in the right frame of mind before your appointment. For those who need a little bit more to feel relaxed, we offer sedation dentistry.
Sedation Dentistry Options
In order to meet the needs of all of our patients, we offer several types of sedation dentistry, including:
- Nitrous Oxide — Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is administered through a mask that is worn over the nose. You remain awake for your procedure, but feel a deep sense of calm. When your treatment is finished, you will be alert and back to normal in a matter of minutes and able to drive yourself home or back to work.
- NuCalm — Combined with nitrous oxide, NuCalm can provide the ultimate relaxing experience. NuCalm uses natural supplements, microcurrent stimulation, neuroacoustic software, and an eye mask to fight adrenaline surges from all angles.
- Oral Conscious Sedation — While this method of sedation requires transportation to and from your appointment, you will still remain awake during your treatment (although you may have no memory of it). We will simply prescribe an oral medication to be taken prior to your appointment. By the time you arrive at our practice, you’ll be relaxed and ready for your procedure.
If you live in or near Denton, Maryland, and have experienced anxiety with previous dentists, we just may be the practice for you. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to changing your perception of dentistry.
