Don’t Fear the Dentist [blog]

You most likely know that you should visit the dentist every six months for a checkup. Dentists far and wide tell their patients to come in regularly so that they can keep an eye on their oral health. If we find any problems during your exam, we can provide treatment to help you avoid bigger problems down the road.

But what about those people who are anxious about receiving dental care? Are you someone who breaks out in a sweat if dental work is mentioned?

At Highland Advanced Dental Care, we tell our patients, “Don’t fear the dentist!” Of course, that’s easier said than done. You can’t just wish away your anxiety. But you can visit a dental practice that prioritizes patient comfort.

We understand that many people are simply afraid of coming to the dentist. That’s why our team is fully committed to providing the best, most comfortable dental care we can. We work hard each day to make sure our patients are listened to, understood, and cared for.

Our compassionate team will take all the time needed to answer any questions you have. The better understanding you have of your dental care, the more relaxed you’ll be. Plus, with more information, you’ll be able to make the best decisions about your oral care.

Dr. LoCascio has been treating his patients to outstanding care for nearly 40 years! Over that time, there’s not a dental problem that he hasn’t helped a patient through. So, no matter what type of dental care you need, he and our team can make it happen.

Whether you need a simple dental cleaning and exam, dental veneers, or teeth restoration using dental implants, we’ll make sure to deliver your care as efficiently and comfortably as possible.

Relax With Inhaled Sedation

One of the ways we help ease our patients’ anxiety is by providing inhaled sedation using laughing gas. We’ll administer this sweet-smelling gas through a comfortable mask you slip over your mouth and nose.

In just minutes, you’ll begin to feel relaxed all over. You’ll experience a sense of euphoria and calm, and the idea of dental care won’t bother you at all. If you’re nervous about dental care or are having several procedures done at one time, laughing gas will allow you to lie back comfortably and relax.

The nice thing about this type of sedation is that its effects wear off quickly. When Dr. LoCascio is done working on your smile, we’ll give you fresh oxygen to breathe in. You’ll feel like yourself again in no time. Unlike other sedation methods, with laughing gas you’ll be able to drive yourself home safely.

Enjoy Our Patient Amenities

We want you to be as comfortable here as if you were in your own living room. That’s why we provide soft pillows, warm blankets, and even headphones. These amenities offer touches of comfort so that your mind will completely relax during your checkup or procedure.

If there’s anything you need that will help you feel comfortable, just ask and our staff will try to accommodate you.

Don’t fear the dentist! Instead, come to Highland Advanced Dental Care for relaxing treatment. Call us today at 248-329-3552 to schedule an appointment.
