Millions of people have some degree of anxiety about dental visits. For some, it’s a nervous flutter when they pick up the phone to make an appointment. For others, the fear can be so debilitating that they skip dental visits altogether.

Whichever end of the spectrum your anxiety lies, you should know that sedation dentistry in East Aurora may be the solution you need to relax.

Your Dentist Understands Your Concerns

Dentists today are highly sensitive to the needs of nervous patients and want to help you overcome your fear. They understand the consequences of missed appointments and how untreated oral health problems impact your appearance, confidence, and ability to enjoy life.

How Sedation Dentistry Helps

Sedation dentistry calms your nerves so you can get necessary care without stress or worry. At Springbrook Family Dental, we offer comforting nitrous oxide sedation that provides just enough stress relief so you can get the care you need but still be able to carry on with your day after your appointment. Here’s how it works:

  • We mix nitrous oxide with oxygen and have you inhale it through a small, comfortable nasal mask.
  • Sit back, relax, and breathe normally, and in a few minutes, you will feel happy, drowsy, and slightly euphoric.
  • The activity around you seems far away, but you are fully conscious and can respond to your team as needed.
  • At the end of your appointment, we switch to full oxygen, so you feel relaxed and refreshed when you leave our office.
  • Since the effects of nitrous dissipate quickly, most patients can safely drive themselves home from their appointment.

Please Call Us to Learn More

If you’ve spent a lifetime being fearful about dentistry, Dr. Jennifer Finney and our team would love to talk to you about nitrous oxide and how it can benefit your treatment and long-term oral health.

Dear patients, friends and family,

In light of recent events surrounding the Corona Virus/COVID-19 and the guidance of our national and state dental societies, we will be rescheduling all 6 month cleaning appointments and any elective dental treatment over the next few weeks.

We continue to be available for dental emergencies and are accessible via phone and email. We love our patients and are willing to do whatever we can for the sake of community health and well being, especially for those among us that could be most affected by infection.

At this time, we have NO known cases of COVID-19 among our staff. Dental offices are at extreme risk for propagation of the virus due to the large number of aerosols created during dental procedures, as well as the close proximity we are in to our patients. Therefore we will continue to adhering to the highest levels of infection control.

I am confident all of us will be better off if we all do our part to protect the community and "flatten the curve". If you have any questions or are looking for any updates please follow our Facebook page or call us at 716-652-0600.
