Have A Relaxing & Enjoyable Dental Experience in Desert Ridge
Fear and anxiety over dental visits is a common problem for both adults and children. If anxiety is preventing you from scheduling a needed dental visit, it's good to know that there are a few ways we, at Tatum Highlands Dentistry, can make it easier for you. Your dental health is important to our Desert Ridge sedation dentist, Dr. Angela Dotson. Dr. Dotson works to improve fearful patient’s experience with the personal care and gentle treatment necessary to maintain good oral health.
Levels of Sedation
At our North Phoenix dental office, we offer several different sedation options to patients including:
- Oral sedation
- Nitrous with oral sedation medication
- Deep sedation accompanied by an anesthesia team
Procedures do not come with sedation methods built into the treatment plan, we only use sedation to treat the patient, not the procedure. When deep sedation is necessary, we work with an anesthesia team who comes to our North Phoenix dental office and provides the specialized care to ensure patient safety and comfort.
Making our Desert Ridge Community More ComfortableMany people worry about visiting the dentist because of the possibility of pain or discomfort during cleanings and other procedures. If you have any fears about your dental appointments, let us know, and we'll make every effort to help you feel more comfortable about your visit. During your appointment, Dr. Dotson will discuss your sedation options and provide suggested relaxation and breathing techniques for you to help yourself stay calm.
The Little Extras
In addition to sedation dentistry options, we also provide relaxation accessories that include:
- Pillows to help support the head and neck during treatment.
- Blankets are offered.
- Isolight - An oral device used to prop the mouth open. Patients are relieved from having to keep their mouth open on their own during the procedure.
Sedation for Children
Dr. Dotson offers sedation dentistry for children when necessary and has been doing so in Desert Ridge for the past 10 years. A mom herself, she understands a mothers desire to know her child is in the best hands for any type of treatment. Our Tatum Highlands family dentist aims to give every child the same special care and attention she'd want her own children to have.
