At Dame Street Dental, we believe that all our patients have the right to feel relaxed. That is why we offer sedation dentistry. This is medicine that lets you rest comfortably as we attend to your teeth. We will have completed treatment by the time you are wide awake, letting you use that scented towel to wipe your face and leave the practice feeling happy.
Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is another option to help you feel at ease. This is a great option for children and teenagers who get dental anxiety. Laughing gas can also be a great choice for patients with mental and physical impairments.
We will review your health history, medication, habits, and other factors to decide the best sedation option for you. We educate you on how sedation will work before your visit to our office. Your safety and comfort are always our top priority
The use of modern technology strongly facilitates our mission to provide comfortable and efficient dental care. When it comes to receiving injections, the DentalVibe is our high tech secret to painless dentistry. The DentalVibe is a high-tech device that provides soothing vibrations to the gums during an injection. These vibration signals are able to travel to the brain quicker than pain signals. Therefore, the DentalVibe technology essentially blocks the sensation of pain from ever being felt. This technology works so well that most patients are unaware of the fact that they just received a shot. To maximize your comfort during injections, we also use a numbing gel and warmed anesthetic solution to precede our DentalVibe technology. If you suffer from a fear of pain or injections at the dental office, we invite you to experience dental care in a whole new way at Dame Street Dental.
The health and beauty of your smile is a valuable investment. If you are avoiding restorative dental procedures that you need or cosmetic dental services that you want because of a fear of pain, Dame Street Dental is a place for you. We offer a full range of dental services with a gentle touch and advanced techniques so that you can achieve the smile you deserve without discomfort. Contact us today to schedule an appointment or for more information about our services.
Do you dread having to hold your jaw open during a dental procedure? This is a common struggle for a large number of patients. Not only does this tend to increase patient discomfort and anxiety, but it can also reduce your dentist’s ability to provide effective dental care. Dame Street Dental proudly offers a win-win solution for both patient and dental professional using The JawDropper™.
The JawDropper is a simple device that keeps your mouth open and your jaw relaxed. On one end, there is a tooth-engaging section, which rests comfortably on your lower teeth. The other end has a handle that you can hold. When you pull it down, it opens your jaw. The JawDropper also has suction capabilities, letting you remove saliva without interrupting the dentist’s work.
Better Access: The JawDropper™ allows the mouth to open even wider than it would if the patient was not using the device. The suction feature also takes care of pooled saliva or water in the mouth without added steps.
More Efficient: Without having to take breaks for the patient to rest their jaw, The JawDropper™ can mean a more time-efficient dental procedure. This helps both patient and professional.
No Fatigue: Using this device can eliminate pain, discomfort and muscular fatigue in the jaw. Even other mouth prop devices or bite blocks can eventually cause sore jaw muscles.
Patient Control: This is especially beneficial for patients who suffer from anxiety, as anxiety often exaggerates pain. The JawDropper™ is completely controlled by the patient, which significantly reduces patient anxiety throughout the procedure.
