Welcome back to our dentistry blog!
You can’t beat Fall in Florida, right?
Whether you are a full time resident or just visiting the St. Petersburg area, it is always nice to know that there is a gentle dentist around to look after your needs, planned or otherwise. Trust us, things can happen fast, even on vacation.
Here at Jeffrey A. Spilman D.D.S., we are a full-service dental office, but we specialize in helping folks work through fear and anxiety in order to get the care they deserve.
Dental phobia, at any level, can be a dangerous thing because it keeps folks from confronting the reality of the situation in their mouth. Maybe you can relate!
By entrusting your smile to our care, you will be partnering with a dentist’s office that has the training, tools, and technology to make it easy for you to stay on track. Plus, you can rest assured that there won’t be any lectures or stern looks from Dr. Spilman or anyone on our team.
A Friendly Atmosphere
You will find that everyone who walks through our doors is treated like family. As such, you can expect those extra touches including comfort options such as pillows, blankets, and headphones (attached to one of our iPads).
We can also take it further, in order to put you more at ease, with dental sedation.
If you do have some level of dental anxiety, let us know and we will set you up with one of our sedation dentistry techniques that will quickly put your fears to rest.
There is no reason to hold onto bad memories of past dental experiences or fear any future pain. That’s because dental sedation makes it possible to forget about those kind of obstacles.
With nitrous oxide (aka laughing gas), your fears will soon drift away as the sedation is inhaled. 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, 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. Be prepared: you will want to have someone around who can drive you back to your home.
Whatever you need in this regard, we’ll make it happen so that it will be possible for you to attend to your oral health needs.
We Can Help!
We are proud of the fact that dentistry runs in the family for the Spilmans, and our leader, Dr. Jeffery Spilman, is dedicated to providing the best possible, most flexible and personalized services for all of the families in our care.
It is our hope that you have been inspired and emboldened by the possibilities discussed in today’s post to learn more about dental sedation and get your oral health back on track.
