Have you been putting off dental treatment due to dental fear and anxiety? You’re not alone! Many adults and kids struggle with their fear of visiting the dentist. In addition to our warm, homey atmosphere, we also offer safe, relaxing sedation dentistry to help you feel comfortable at your appointments.
- Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide is the most common and mildest form of sedation used for patients with dental anxiety or those undergoing mild dental procedures. It is administered through a nose mask and puts patients into a giddy, almost euphoric mood, which is why it is often called laughing gas.
- Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a pill that patients can take before their appointment begins. They will remain conscious and able to communicate with our team, but feel a strong sense of calm and well-being throughout their treatment.
- General Anesthesia
General anesthesia is the sedation choice for patients undergoing oral surgery. This is a deeper form of sedation that is administered by a registered anesthesiologist. We take extra precautions with general anesthesia and follow the strictest safety guidelines.
At Sterling Heights Dentistry, we stay on the leading edge of dentistry to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality care available. Our treatment rooms are fully stocked with state-of-the-art technology to provide truly advanced care.
- Digital X-Rays
Our digital X-ray technology allows us to take precise, almost-instant imaging of teeth, bone, and soft tissues. They emit less radiation than traditional X-rays and expedite the treatment process.
- Smile Preview Software
Through our smile preview software, we can design a virtual model of a patient’s new smile if they are undergoing restorative or cosmetic treatments. It helps us map out their treatment and ensure that they are happy with what their end results will look like before we even start treatment.
- Intraoral Camera
With intraoral cameras, we can project a video feed of our patients’ mouths so that they can see what we do. This helps us walk them through their diagnoses and treatment recommendations.
Frequently Asked Questions
Choosing the right dentist for your family is only part of the process—you also want to ensure the environment of the overall practice meets your needs. When evaluating a dentist’s office, here are some key things to consider:
- Is the office clean and comfortable?
- What steps are being taken to ensure patient comfort? For example, are headphones available? Is there a television screen in the treatment area?
- Is this an environment where you and your family will feel comfortable and relaxed? If you’re seeking a pediatric dentist, is the office equipped to entertain younger patients? How does the staff interact with children?
- Does the practice feature any advanced equipment? Having the latest technology at your disposal will ensure faster, more precise treatments.
We use the latest technology at our Sterling Heights dental practice to ensure fast and precise treatments for every patient. Our digital X-rays provide us with high-quality images of your teeth while significantly reducing your exposure to radiation, while our intraoral cameras allow us to detect oral health issues that aren’t visible to the naked eye. Best of all, our Smile Preview software shows you what your final results will look like before your treatment even begins.
If you have dental anxiety, Dr. Ahmed and our staff will be happy to accommodate you. Depending on your needs, we offer nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and general anesthesia at our practice. If you’re undergoing a surgical procedure or if you simply want to reduce your anxiety, schedule a consultation with our Sterling Heights dentist to discuss your sedation options. He’ll listen to your needs and concerns, then help you determine the safest and most effective option for you.
