2 Ways to Make Dental Care More Comfortable

The goals of professional dental care focus on more than just providing exceptional treatment. For example, your care also involves ensuring that you’re comfortable during your visit, and that your treatment doesn’t significantly disrupt your already-busy schedule. In our Oxnard, CA, dentist’s office, we invest significantly in providing top-notch care to every patient, including using sedation and digital imaging to enhance your comfort, diagnosis, and treatment results.

Advanced digital imaging

Digital imaging is essential your dental health care in several ways. For routine prevention, your dentist may periodically take X-rays of your teeth and gums during your regular checkups and cleanings. By comparing recent images to previous ones, your dentist can note any changes that require additional attention. When planning for your treatment, digital X-rays and other imaging technology allow your dentist to more accurately determine and diagnose your specific concerns. Because the images are captured using advanced digital technology, they can be produced and viewed almost immediately, helping you reduce the time you have to spend at the office.

Customizable dental sedation

Dental sedation is often recommended for patients who experience high levels of anxiety, fear, or phobia at the prospect of visiting the dentist. The medication helps ease tension and anxiety, helping patients remain calm and comfortable enough to receive necessary treatment. Sedation can also be beneficial for patients who require extensive reconstructive treatment, such as surgical tooth extraction or the placement of one or more dental implants. Being calm and comfortable means you can remain still in your dentist’s chair for longer, allowing your dentist to complete more of your treatment at one time. Even if you don’t suffer from dental anxiety or phobia, your dentist might suggest a customized application of sedation to complete your treatment faster and more comfortably.
