If you’re looking for a local dentist, you might have come across the term “gentle dentist” or “painless dentist.” So what exactly is a gentle dentist? To some people, going to the dentist is the least gentle and painless experience they can think of.
A painless, or gentle dentist is one that is aware of this, and aware that many people have negative associations with the dentist. Our dentist, Dr. Clarke at Greenbriar Dental Care, is so passionate about her work in dentistry and her patients, that she makes a personal effort to make all patients feel comfortable and at ease. Dental health is an important part of your overall health, so don’t avoid the dentist just because you don’t like doing it. Many dental practices today have evolved to accommodate patients’ needs for gentle, painless and comfortable dentist visits.
To maximize our patients’ peace of mind during each visit, we strive to make sure that every patient that walks into our office is greeted and taken care of by warm, friendly staff. Your hygienist will make you feel relaxed and at home, and will answer any questions you might have about your visit, procedures, preferences and worries. At Greenbriar Dental Care, we want to put all of our patients at ease, and make them feel safe and appreciated before the dental appointment even begins.
For patients with a high level of dental anxiety, and for all patients undergoing invasive and surgical procedures, we offer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas. Laughing gas, is a simple, and painless way of sedating and relaxing patients. Laughing gas is safe and has no side effects, and rest assured that it is administered by a clinical professional at our Atlanta dental practice. If you suffer from a fear of the dentist, are highly pain-sensitive (not uncommon for oral work), or even susceptible to gagging during dental procedures, ask us about using laughing gas during your next visit.
Remember, Greenbriar Dental Care in Atlanta is a gentle dentist too! We want to make all of our patients comfortable and at ease so that they can have optimal dental and oral health for a lifetime.
