Help Me – I’m Afraid Of The Dentist!

Categories: General Dentistry

Minneapolis Sleep Dentistry If you are afraid of your Maple Grove cosmetic dentist, you are not alone. At Arbor Lakes Dental, we encounter many nervous first-time Minneapolis dental patients. How do we calm their fears, provide a comfortable dental environment and earn lifelong patients?

1) We carefully explain the findings of the initial dental examination and thoroughly outline any recommended procedures. The consultation also includes a discussion about pain control including oral conscious sedation medications. This allows our Osseo dentistry patients to make informed decisions about their oral health and necessary dental procedures.

2) Dr. Jamie Sledd practices gentle, pain-free dentistry. Plymouth MN cosmetic dentistry treatment will not begin until you are numb. Keep in mind, however, that every dentistry patient reacts to numbing agents and sedation medications differently.

Speak up quickly if you start to feel discomfort. We will pause treatment, administer additional analgesic and wait until it takes effect. At Arbor Lakes Dental, we never rush cosmetic dental or restorative procedures.

We will do our best to make you comfortable, whether you are receiving dental veneers, undergoing crown-lengthening treatment, having your teeth whitened, or replacing your old silver fillings.

3) We provide many in-office amenities at Arbor Lakes Dental which help our dental patients focus on something pleasant during cosmetic dental treatment. Not every Champlin dental patient chooses sleep dentistry. Sometimes chemical-free diversions such as listening to your favorite music provide a distraction while letting you remain clear-headed.

At Arbor Lakes Dental, we understand dental anxiety and will help you overcome it. We are located at 12000 Elm Creek Blvd, Ste 230 in Maple Grove, 55369.
