Hi, my name is Dr. Robert Antolak for Gentle Dentist. When people come to us, a lot of people come in because they have a huge level of fear, at the dentist.
You know it goes back to, a lot of times, bad experiences as a child- not being listened to on something hurting them, and avoiding dentistry for a long time. That might be you. What we’ve found is by using sedation dentistry, using oral sedation, is an awesome way to help you have the dentistry that you need in a just a few visits with hardly any memory at all- if any memory at all. The procedure is very safe. Let me explain how that works.
So, the night before, normally you would not eat or drink anything for about eight hours ahead a time. And then you would take a small little pill, actually two a them, an hour before your appointment. You take the pill, you come on in and you’re feeling pretty good by this time. You’re not going to remember pretty much from this point out. And what we’ll do is we monitor your heart rate, your blood pressure, your oxygen that’s in your blood. So you’re very safe. You’re monitored. We have at our office the ability to use gas or nitrous oxide and oxygen to increase your level of sedation or decrease your level of sedation.
Many times we’ll do dentistry for 3-4 hours, at one visit, and you’re the only patient at the time. So you get a lot of treatment completed that you’ve been avoiding for years. And the beauty is, is that when you’re done you go home, you take a little nap and then you wake up at home, then you think, wow, that was easy. This is because it went very quickly. Time will fly by for you.
So, if this sounds like something that you want, pick up to call us. You can call us at 586-247-3500 or visit our website at thegentledentist.com.
We will prove to you why we are the gentle dentist.
