Gentle Dentistry at Hylan Dental Care

What is gentle dentistry?

Gentle dentistry is our staff's dental care techniques with compassionate care to ensure that each and every patient, especially our little Pediatric Dentistry patients, we treat will feel as little pain as possible.

We practice gentle techniques no matter the dental procedure or treatment needed!

Gentle Dentistry Techniques

Take a look below at how we are able to utilize a gentle touch during dental procedures with various techniques.

Numbing shot

One of the worst things for many people is “the shot," but did you know that today’s technology makes a number of things more comfortable for the patient?

For example, there is a new 33-gauge needle that is made so thin you can hardly feel it, yet it is strong enough that it won’t break during use or be a safety hazard.

Nitrous Oxide

Another gentle dentistry technique is nitrous oxide gas, sometimes called laughing gas.

Nitrous oxide is a mild relaxant that you breathe through you nose during your dental appointment.

It makes everything go more smoothly, and at the end of the appointment you simply breathe oxygen for a couple of minutes and it comes completely out of your system so you can drive home.


For some people, distraction works best.

We have a television in the room, and you can watch your favorite program or a video during your appointment; that way, you don’t have to think about the procedure as it's happening.

Sedation sleep dentistry

If you’re especially anxious, you may be interested in sedation dentistry.

You can take a pill before your appointment and become so relaxed and indifferent that you may not even remember what happened.


"The folks at Hylan Dental are the real deal. From the receptionist to the dentists themselves and everyone in between. All staff are grade "A" and their work is exceptional. I have never been to a dentist so gentle and professional. Every experience has been a great one."

-Aaron Brown
