Anxiety-Free Dentistry

woman with Dental AnxietyDoes the thought of visiting the dentist send shivers down your spine? Have you avoided dentist appointments for years because of your dental anxiety? We completely understand that dental anxiety is a real thing that a number of our patients suffer from, so we go out of our way to help you get comfortable and feeling relaxed throughout your treatment.

Our dentists use nitrous oxide with patients who suffer from mild to moderate dental anxiety. Also known as laughing gas, this sweet-smelling gas is inhaled through a mask over your nose and mouth, and it leaves you feeling very relaxed while our team works.

If your anxiety is more severe, your dentist may recommend oral conscious sedation. Using a carefully prescribed pill, the goal of oral conscious sedation is for you to feel completely at ease by the time you’re in the dental chair, but awake so our team can talk to you and assess your comfort level throughout your procedure.

Advanced Digital Technology

As part of our commitment to gentle dental care, we utilize advanced digital technology that is more effective when it comes to diagnosing and treating dental issues. This technology also makes your time in the dental chair more comfortable and more educational, so you can be an active participant in your oral health.

Digital X-rays

Dental X-rays - Carolina Smiles Family DentistryCompared to traditional X-rays, digital X-rays allow us to obtain images of your teeth and jawbone faster than ever before. They don’t require the sharp and uncomfortable X-ray film, either, so they’re comfortable for you. Digital X-rays are safe for use with all patients, including children and pregnant women.

Intraoral Camera

Dental Intraoral CameraWe use our intraoral camera to show you what we see inside your mouth. We can take photos of your teeth and gums, and show you exactly what we’re talking about when it comes to your diagnosis or treatment plan. This allows you to take control of your oral health decisions.
