Our doctors will help you relax
Dr. Setya, Dr. Hirst, and Dr. Bergman really care about their patients. They will take whatever time is needed to educate you and answer all your questions. They will explain the results of their examinations in detail and will thoroughly explain your treatment options so you know what to expect and can relax.
Amenities for added comfort
We have a beverage station in our reception for you and you can request any of our selection of drinks during your visit as needed. To make your treatment more comfortable in the chair, we provide pillows, blankets and iPods with music.
Minimally Invasive Procedures
A major way we help you avoid discomfort in all our treatments is by using advanced technology and minimally invasive procedures wherever possible.
Dental laser for gum treatments
Our dental laser is a gentle surgical device used in cosmetic gum procedures and gum disease treatment. It is far less invasive than traditional surgical instruments.
Ultrasonic scalers that adjust for comfort
We use ultrasonic scalers to remove the majority of the plaque and calculus from your teeth. Ultrasonic scalers are gentler than traditional scaling instruments and can be adjusted for patient comfort.
When the doctor needs to extract a tooth, he first gently severs the ligaments holding the tooth in place. He then removes the tooth vertically with special instruments. This type of extraction causes little to no damage to the surrounding bone and tissue and speeds healing time.
We warm our anesthetic to body temperature so it causes no discomfort due to being cold. We apply a topical anesthetic at the injection site so there is no initial sensation and then slowly deliver the injection so it is comfortable.
For long procedures or for patients who need extra help to relax, we have several sedation options. The doctor will let you know which one will best suit your needs.
Nitrous oxide is a colorless, odorless gas you inhale that causes drowsiness and reduced anxiety. The effects of the gas wear off quickly and we give you pure oxygen immediately after terminating the nitrous oxide to speed up recovery time.
In oral sedation, you receive a sedative pill to help you relax. The sedative puts you in a twilight-like sleep where you can still respond to requests and questions from the doctor.
With IV sedation, the sedative is entered directly into the bloodstream and is regulated for strength during the procedure to ensure optimal comfort. You will be in a deeply relaxed twilight-like sleep yet still able to respond to communications from the doctor. The doctor has an anesthesiologist administer and monitor the sedative during the procedure.
