Why? Because we want you to be as healthy as possible. We can help by making you comfortable coming to Premier Dental and Implants in Tigard, OR for oral care. Call 503-210-9802 to learn more about our approach, and keep reading to learn what you can do to help yourself.
1. Start With Sedation
Sedation dentistry has been around for centuries. It’s certainly more sophisticated now. We are happy to offer three levels of sedation:
- Laughing gas
- Oral sedation
- IV sedation
We have an option to help you. Sedation can be used with any procedure and all levels of dental anxiety.
2. Make Comfort a Priority
Sedation can allow you to get in the door to get the care that you need. That’s only the start of how we help our patients, however.
You can use our comfort amenities to feel more at home. Ask about a blanket or pillows to feel cozier during your cleaning. Watching television or listening to music or a podcast can provide a welcome distraction as well.
3. Get to Know Our Team
The most important thing is finding dental professionals who you trust with your teeth. We take pride in helping our patients feel at ease throughout their appointments.
Let us work with you to end your fear of the dentist. It may not happen in one visit, but it will get easier. Take it one step at a time. We’ll walk with you.
