Think about a game or hobby that you enjoy. How was it the first time you tried it?
Was it difficult? Looking back on it now, you know that getting through those awkward beginner stages has made things easier and improved your life.
There’s a reason you’re still playing that game or participating in your hobby.
Now, we aren’t going to pretend that coming to the dentist office is as enjoyable as playing a game, but professional dental care provides important long-term benefits for your oral and your overall health. If you avoid the dentist, you are missing out on these benefits.
Whether you need a dental cleaning or dental implants, our team at New Albany Implants has several ways to help you relax while you are in our office, including sedation dentistry.
We welcome you to call us at (812) 945-7645 or to contact us online to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists in New Albany, IN. This could be the first step in helping you overcome your dental anxiety and restoring your healthy smile.
Don’t Skip The Dentist
Experts have different estimates, but as many as 1 in 5 people avoid the dentist office due to fear or anxiety. In our country, that means tens of millions of people aren’t getting the care they need to keep their mouths healthy.
People who don’t have regular dental care are more likely to develop tooth decay and gum disease, both of which can lead to pain and tooth loss if left untreated. Unfortunately, when this happens, some patients feel like they can’t go to the dentist.
The truth is, Dr. Ron Receveur and the rest of our team want to help you restore your smile and rebuild your oral health. We can do this with dental implants and our other restorative procedures. Whether you need a dental crown, dental bridges, or full implant-supported dentures, we have the skill, the education, the expertise, and (perhaps more importantly) the experience to bring back your smile and more!
You Can Feel Comfortable In A Dentist’s Chair
If you decide to visit New Albany Implants, we believe you will find something different than you might be expecting from a dentist office.
Instead of the clean, cold, and sterile setting, you will find a friendly staff in a warm and caring environment. We’re still clean, but we’ve found a way to make our office inviting rather than intimidating.
We want you to feel like a family friend when you are in our office. That’s why your comfort is one of our top priorities when you visit us.
Together, we can help retrain your brain to think of our dentist office as a place where people want what is best for you. At our office, you’ll find that laughter and people having fun are part of our daily routine.
We’re happy to provide you with comfort items to help you feel more at home, too. We have juice and coffee for our guests to enjoy. We will gladly offer you a blanket, pillow, or both if you want to feel cozier.
We’ll even entertain you. We have DVD players if you would like to watch a movie or television show and headphones to listen to music if you would prefer a distraction during your dental care.
A Step Up With Sedation Dentistry
If the comfort items mentioned above aren’t enough to help you relax, we have another great way to help even the most fearful patients.
Sedation dentistry has been around in one form or another for more than 160 years, but even today, few dentists offer the level of service you’ll find at New Albany Implants.
Our dental professionals have the training needed to provide IV sedation for our patients. This level of sedation requires more extensive training than other forms of sedation. We can assure you, however, that IV sedation is an effective, fast, and safe way to receive dental care that you may need.
Sedation dentistry has helped more patients than we can count. It’s great for anyone with moderate to severe dental anxiety and for any patient who is going through implant placement or other complex procedures.
Our goal is to help you have the healthiest mouth possible. However we can help you relax so this can happen is how we will handle your care.
