At Sundance Dental & Orthodontics, we make a conscious effort to help our patients feel comfortable. Here are four ways we are dedicated to your peace of mind at Sundance Dental & Orthodontics in Farmington:
1. We don’t judge you.
The considerate dental team at Sundance Dental & Orthodontics is here to help you, regardless of the state of your teeth. We have treated patients with severe tooth neglect, advanced gum disease, enamel erosion caused by eating disorders, tooth damage caused by illegal drug use, baby bottle tooth decay, tobacco-stained teeth, and more Our goal is always to be understanding and empathize with our patients.
2. We protect you from pain. From topical analgesics to oral conscious sedation, we will eliminate or minimize pain as best we can. Dr. Tornow is a pro at administering barely noticeable injections.
3. We help you with your dental anxiety. Fear of the dentist is far more prevalent than you might realize and certainly nothing to be ashamed of. The perceived loss of control, instruments poking in your mouth, and teeth being worked on is not pleasant. Some people get claustrophobic because they need to lie still in the chair for treatment.
Sleep dentistry (oral conscious sedation) not only helps with pain management, it allows you to sleep through your appointment. There are different levels of sedation, so you don’t have to be completely unconscious unless you want to be. If you would like more details about sedation, call 505-985-5626 to schedule a consultation. We can discuss the different levels of oral conscious sedation so you can pick the one that is best for you.
4. We communicate with you. Dr. Tornow has established a reputation as an effective and responsive communicator. Procedures are thoroughly explained and all your important questions will be answered prior to treatment. If you are not sure you want to initiate treatment, we are happy to let you think about it for a while. There is no rush.
If you have postponed dental treatment for any reason, we encourage you to give dentist Tornow and the team at Sundance Dental & Orthodontics a try. Neglecting your oral health has serious consequences. Call today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to meeting you.
