Q&A: What is Comfort Dentistry?














Do you ever feel nervous or apprehensive about visiting the dentist? Many people assume the worst about common dental visits, so they avoid the checkups and dental cleanings that can preserve the health and beauty of their smiles. To counteract these assumptions, we place a major focus on comfort dentistry. Employing a variety of amenities, as well as sedation dentistry, our team at A New Smile strives to offer an enjoyable experience for all of our patients.

Common Questions About Comfort Dentistry

Question: What amenities does A New Smile offer?

Answer: We want to make sure our patients are comfortable and relaxed. To accomplish this goal, we offer silent hand pieces and access to music and movies during treatment. If you still feel nervous, we will gladly talk you through your treatment or address any concerns you may have. For patients with major anxiety, sedation dentistry can offer additional relaxation.

Question: What is sedation dentistry?

Answer: Sedation dentistry involves the use of sedatives to help nervous or anxious patients remain calm and relaxed. Other practices even use sedation to help patient with health complications and development disorders that would make even simple exams difficult.

Question: What sedation options are available?

Answer: We offer two forms of sedation, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and conscious sedation. Which one will work best for you depends on a number of factors, including your current health and the level of anxiety you feel. Our doctors will discuss your sedation options.

Question: Does A New Smile offer anesthesia?

Answer: Yes. With Cetacaine we can offer needleless anesthesia. Patients feel more comfortable about this type of anesthesia. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our anesthesia, don’t hesitate to ask our doctors or our staff.
