Help Me Lafayette; I’m Afraid Of The Dentist!

Categories: sedation dentistry

Boulder Sleep Dentistry If you are afraid of your Lafayette cosmetic dentist, you are not alone. At Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry, we encounter many nervous first-time Lafayette dental patients. How do we calm their fears, provide a comfortable dental environment and earn lifelong clients?

1) We carefully explain the findings of the initial dental examination and thoroughly outline any recommended procedures. The consultation also includes a discussion about pain control including sedation dentistry. This allows our Broomfield dentistry clients to make informed decisions about their oral health and necessary dental procedures.

2) Dr. Gordon West practices gentle, pain-free dentistry. Lafayette cosmetic dentistry treatment will not begin until you are numb. Keep in mind, however, that every dentistry patient reacts to numbing agents and sedation medications differently.

Speak up quickly if you start to feel discomfort. We will pause treatment, administer additional analgesic and wait until it takes effect. At Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry, we never rush cosmetic dental or restorative procedures.

We will do our best to make you comfortable, whether you are receiving dental veneers, undergoing crown-lengthening treatment, having your teeth whitened, or replacing your old silver fillings.

3) We provide many in-office amenities at Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry which help our dental patients focus on something pleasant during cosmetic dental treatment. Not every Lafayette dental patient chooses sedation dentistry. Sometimes chemical-free diversions such as listening to your favorite music provide a diversion while letting you remain clear-headed.

At Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry, we understand dental anxiety and will help you overcome it. We are located at 1140 West S. Boulder Rd, Suite 201 in Lafayette, 80026.
