Welcome back to another June edition of our dentistry blog!
This platform is part of our community education program, designed to help folks keep up with the latest and greatest in the world of oral health care.
At Jeffrey A. Spilman D.D.S., we are a versatile dental practice, and are capable of handling most any situation in your mouth. But, in many ways, we specialize in helping folks, regular ongoing patients and temporary visitors alike, work through any dental anxiety issues so that they can get all the care they deserve.
We have looked over mouths from all over the world. And one thing we have learned is that your oral health needs never take a vacation. So, like many others before you, you may just find yourself far away from home searching for a trustworthy, and gentle, dentist.
If that is your situation, you are in luck, because we can take care of you here, regardless of your age or background.
You’ll quickly see that we are always willing to go to great lengths to make sure you feel welcome and that you are comfortable at all times during your visit with us. And you can trust that we have all the necessary training, tools, and technology to back it up!
If you are experiencing a dental problem, we ask, “How soon can you get here?” Rather than making you wait on our schedule, we cater to yours. And if you are truly in pain, we will shift things around to see you the same day that you call us for assistance.
We Provide A Relaxed Environment
You won’t feel like a stranger for long. Everyone that comes through our doors is treated like a part of our crazy extended family. So, you can expect plenty of comfort options while you are with us such as blankets, and headphones (attached to one of our iPads).
Perhaps the most common item our visitors request is a pillow. That makes sense. We see a lot of patients here in Florida who are older and they just need a little extra support in the back or the neck. And we are happy to make that happen for you as well.
We can also go deeper, to help you relax or get over any anxiety, with dental sedation services.
Sedation Techniques At Jeffery A. Spilman
With nitrous oxide (aka laughing gas), your fears will soon drift away as the sedation is inhaled through a comfortable mask. And you’ll be awake throughout the procedure and will return to a normal state of consciousness shortly after your treatment is completed.
If you opt for oral sedation, a pill, you will be conscious for your procedure, but you will be very relaxed and will likely not remember the procedure at all once it is over. Fair warning: you will want to have someone around who can drive you back to wherever you are staying.
