We have invested in modern technology that will make your visits efficient and treatment minimally invasive. Examples are digital X-rays, intraoral cameras, and chairside monitors, which detail images of your oral structures so that Dr. Jones and Dr. Harris can make accurate diagnoses. The images also allow the doctor to show you his findings and visually illustrate his treatment recommendations.
To help anxious patients relax during procedures, we also offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation. Nitrous oxide is also known as “laughing gas” and is a safe and effective method for eliminating discomfort and anxiety. It is also highly controllable, as it takes effect quickly, and its properties wear off within a few minutes of removing the breathing apparatus. Once the effects have worn off, you can even drive yourself home. Oral sedation consists of taking an antianxiety medication before your procedure, which will induce a deep state of relaxation. You will remain conscious during your procedure and can respond to your dentist’s instructions, but many patients report that they do not remember much about their time in the dental chair, which is exactly the way they want it! Whatever sedation method you choose, our highly-trained staff members are continually by your side throughout the procedure to monitor your vital signs and make sure you are tolerating the medication well.
Along with providing advanced technology and sedation methods, we work hard to ensure that our patients feel comfortable and safe with our experienced staff. Dr. Jones, Dr. Harris, and our team members invest in continuing education each year, and we stay on top of the latest developments in the dental field. You can have peace of mind that we’ll take great care of you and your loved ones at every dental appointment.
