Relaxation dentistry at our West Liberty, IA dentist office or Muscatine, IA dentist office is used to:

  • Calm your nerves if you suffer from dental anxiety
  • Help your family feel totally at ease during any treatments
  • Make sure you never fear returning to our office for gentle dental care

It has been estimated that 75 percent of Americans suffer from dental anxiety. If you’re nervous to visit us, there’s nothing to be ashamed of. Sometimes, a single bad experience in the past can prevent a person from receiving dental care for the majority of their life.

Dr. Carol and Dr. Roberto don’t want you to neglect your smile due to fear. It’s important to let us care for your smile to prevent dental issues and solve any existing problems. Call 563-316-6055 to visit one of our soothing offices today. We’ll meet with you and go over exactly how we can help you feel great about booking each appointment with us over the years.

Providing Relaxation Dentistry That Best Helps You

Dr. Carol and Dr. Roberto offer two forms of relaxation dentistry to provide total peace of mind during your visits with us. These completely safe options include:

Free Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide is commonly referred to as “laughing gas.” It is inhaled while you wear a comfortable nasal mask, and it quickly relieves you of any anxiety you’re experiencing. This is a preferred method of relaxation dentistry for all ages, since it is completely safe and wears off quickly once your treatment is completed. You or your family members can return to work or school without feeling groggy.

Oral Conscious Relaxation
This is a stronger form of relaxation dentistry, which is taken as a pill before your procedure. Because you will feel drowsy, you’ll need a friend or family member to drive you to and from our office. You’ll be able to communicate with Dr. Carol or Dr. Roberto, but you will feel absolutely no pain or stress.

Oral conscious relaxation dentistry is commonly provided for more involved treatments or for patients who suffer from more severe levels of dental anxiety. Like nitrous oxide, it is completely safe, and Dr. Carol or Dr. Roberto will provide all the information you need if you have any questions.

Offering Additional Comfort During Your Stay

We will always numb your mouth using a safe numbing gel before any procedure that could cause discomfort. In addition to these measures that ensure you feel no pain, we offer:

  • A soothing, spa-like atmosphere
  • Comfortable neck pillows and blankets
  • Ceiling TVs so you can kick back and be entertained during treatment
  • Headphones
  • Monitors so you can see what Dr. Carol or Dr. Roberto are seeing inside your mouth, if desired
  • A warm towel to wash up with after your treatment

Call 563-316-6055 or contact us through our online form to speak with us today. We’re here to answer any questions you have so you can feel completely confident during your first appointment!
