Dental anxiety is real and impactful. There are millions of people who would just as soon ignore a toothache than spend one minute in the dentist's chair. Regardless of the cause of dental anxiety, we understand that the sounds, smells, and sights of the dental office can be off-putting to some. It is important to us that we meet our patient's needs. We are committed not only to helping you achieve your healthiest smile, but to do so using painless dentistry techniques when you visit our Worcester, MA practice for care.
Patients who visit our office for compassionate dental care are handled with gentleness and precision. We perform dental check-ups with a light hand, taking care to ensure the process of evaluating teeth and gums is comfortable and effective. Our dental team, as well, is committed to making sure your dental experiences are positive. From x-rays to dental cleanings, gentle techniques are used.
When dental anxiety is a problem, a patient may have a difficult time undergoing even routine care, let alone restorative treatment such as a dental filling. Part of our “painless dentistry” commitment is to provide anxious patients with the opportunity to relax under our care. If you have avoided seeing the dentist due to anxiety, Dr. Levenson would like to change your attitude about dental care by providing treatment while you are relaxed with an appropriate sedative.
Sedation dentistry is not new, although our practice is one of the only in the immediate area that provides this service. Under a sedative such as nitrous oxide, or an oral medication, our patients find that they can receive the care they need without nervousness making the entire experience challenging. Before your visit with Dr. Levenson, we are happy to discuss the factors that have lead you to avoid dental care, and devise a plan in which you can benefit from painless, anxiety-free dentistry.
We have found that the anxious patient benefits greatly from the use of sedatives during dental treatment. Although local anesthetic is applied, blocking any discomfort during a procedure, starting treatment with relaxing medication eases feelings of apprehension. The use of sedatives in dentistry can literally change your entire experience. Many people find that they eventually have the ability to undergo treatment without sedation.
We believe that you deserve to show off a smile that looks and feels good. You don't have to put off seeing the dentist due to fear. Our team provides the highest standard of care, and caters to your sense of wellbeing. Contact us today to learn more about our sedation dentistry services.
