Cleveland Gentle Dentistry
At Hylan Dental Care, our motto is “We Cater to Cowards.” And we take it seriously.
We understand that going to the dentist isn’t one of your favorite activities. And sometimes it downright hurts. Well, we feel that it doesn’t have to be that way.
Techniques for Gentle Dentistry
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.
Another gentle dentistry technique is nitrous oxide gas. sometimes called laughing gas, it 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. So 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 what we’re doing.
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. Ask us about it.
