We recognize that for some patients, visiting the dentist can be a stressful and anxiety-driven experience. This feeling may be caused by sensory processing concerns or even by negative experiences in the past. The comfort of our patients is very important to us and we treat each patient as an individual. We offer a range of options for increasing patient comfort including online forms completed before the appointment, curbside check-in, comfortable waiting rooms, hypnotherapy, and sedation for our patients who may experience a higher level of nerves or anxiety.
At Northridge Dental Group, we offer both oral sedatives and nitrous oxide sedation for those patients who need a little more assistance getting comfortable during their dental treatments. Sedation is not the norm at our office, we offer it only upon request. If you experience anxiety and nerves during dental treatments, let us know and we will explain the sedation process, answer all your questions, and we can decide together if sedation is right for you. We offer alternative methods including Hypnotherapy.
