In life, there a few things you have to worry about. Visiting the Mall of America on Black Friday can certainly raise your blood pressure. Waiting to see how the Viking’s season will turn out is another.
One thing we don’t want you to worry about is a trip to our office. At Serafimov Dental in West St. Paul, we want to relieve you of your dental fear and anxiety.
Every year, millions of Americans put off necessary dental work because they are uneasy about visiting the dentist. Whether it be fear, anxiety, or nervousness; dentophobia is a real thing with potentially disastrous results.
Fear of dentists often results in patients procrastinating about visiting the dentist, and then needing more complicated and expensive dental procedures later in life.
A simple cavity can be filled with a routine filling. But if left untreated, the decay in a cavity can spread to other teeth. This spread of decay may necessitate a root canal, or even the removal of teeth.
Not visiting the dentist also heightens your risk for oral diseases. During a dental exam, we screen for Gum Disease and Oral Cancer. If detected early, we can treat these diseases and prevent you from losing teeth. But if Oral Diseases are left unchecked, they can disfigure your face or even be fatal.
But in the year 2015, you don’t have to feel anxious about visiting the dentist’s office. At Serafimov Dental we offer pain-free, anxiety-free, fear-free dentistry. In today’s blog post, we’re going to tell you about a few of the things that make our office different.
We Offer a Relaxed Environment
At Serafimov Dental, we want you to feel relaxed during your entire dental procedure. For that reason, we offer a wide array of amenities you won’t find in a typical dental office.
When you come in for an appointment, we greet you with a smile. We’re happy to explain any procedure in plainspoken language you can understand, and we won’t lecture you if its been awhile since you visited a dentist.
During your procedure, you can get comfy in our state-of-the-art massage chairs. You can listen to music over headphones, or even watch a movie during your appointment. You can also have peace of mind, and let your children play in our fun waiting area during your procedure.
We Offer Dental Sedation to Reduce Anxiety
Whether you just feel a little anxious about your procedure, or are undergoing a lengthy procedure, Dental Sedation can calm your nerves during an appointment. We offer Nitrous Oxide Sedation for all our procedures.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation is provided by placing a small, comfortable mask on your nose. During your procedure, we supply you with a comfortable stream of oxygen enriched with Nitrous Oxide.
As you breath in the Nitrous Oxide, you will almost immediately feel relaxed and free of worries. Nitrous Oxide is sometimes referred to as ‘laughing gas’ because it provides users with a state of euphoria. You may feel giggly and happy during the procedure.
While undergoing Nitrous Oxide Sedation, time will seem to speed up. On occasion, you may not remember all of your procedure. But at all times you will be conscious during your procedure, and able to respond to instructions from our staff. Should you fall asleep, we can gently and easily wake you back up.
Nitrous Oxide is a safe and healthy gas; it has even been cited by the World Health Organization as one of the most vital medical products in the world. This is because it greatly increases the efficiency of dental procedures, we can perform several procedures in one visit with Nitrous Oxide Sedation.
One of the best parts of Nitrous Oxide Sedation is that its effects are completely temporary. Nitrous Oxide Sedation does not causes any sort of hangover from use, and users are returned to a normal state of being almost immediately after their procedure. This means you can drive yourself home after an appointment, or even return to work or school.
