Hello out there! We hope that you are enjoying what is left of this amazing Florida summer! We also hope that you will come see us in person, sooner rather than later. Especially if something is bothering you. That’s because, whenever you are experiencing a dental problem, we always ask, “How soon can you get here?” Instead of making you wait it out until our schedule allows, we try our best to cater to yours. And if you tell us that are in pain, we will shift things around to see you the same day that you call us for assistance. One way or another, Dr. Spilman will get you smiling BIG again. So, keep reading to hear more about what we have to offer, and then be sure to follow up and schedule your next appointment at our St. Petersburg, FL dentist’s office.
A Relaxed, Comfortable Environment
We are used to snowbirds and vacationers around here. So, even if you are just visiting from out of town, you won’t ever feel out of place. Everyone that comes through our doors is treated like a part of our extended family. As such, you can expect plenty of comfort options while you are with us such as blankets, and headphones (attached to one of our iPads). Just like home! It could be that the most common item our visitors request is a pillow, which 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. But that is not all that we can do for you. Keep in mind that Dr. Spilman can also go further, to help you relax or get over any anxiety, with our dental sedation services. Not every office in the area is certified to do what we can do in this realm.
Sedation Dentistry Makes It Easy
There is a wide range of issues that sedation can help you with. We have more than one variety of sedation here, too. 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.
But the other way is even more intense. When 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. Just so you know: you will want to line up a ride home.
