Silverdale Dental Center goes the extra mile to alleviate your dental anxiety

Feeling nervous or experiencing dental anxiety is something that patients like you across Silverdale, Bremerton, and Poulsbo, WA face each day. Our entire team completely understands that your concerns are based on real worries and should never be trivialized or minimized.

If you’re afraid of going to the dentist or need some help to feel more at ease while you’re seeing us for dental treatment, sedation dentistry is a soothing solution that’s effective and easy.

What is Dental Anxiety?

The root of your dental anxiety is intensely personal and frequently caused by a past dental experience that was frightening or traumatic. Or, just like regular anxiety, sometimes the nervousness that you feel at the dentist doesn’t come with a reasonable explanation. You’re just nervous, and that’s OK.

Maybe you:

  • Have a fear of needles or drills.
  • Are facing more in-depth treatment.
  • Struggle with teeth, or a gag reflex, that are sensitive.

For these reasons, and so many more, we’re here to help. Silverdale Dental Center gives you one-on-one access to a board-certified, trusted, and highly experienced anesthesiologist for complete, compassionate care you won’t find anywhere else.

Let’s Find Your Sedation Solution Together

You can take comfort in knowing there is a safe and reliable way to help alleviate your dental anxiety and fear. You won’t need to travel to a hospital or a different office where you’ll feel even more out of place. Come to the office you know, see the team you trust, and feel the difference sedation can make.

Oral Sedation

Usually administered in pill form, you’ll get gentle relaxation that’s minimal, yet highly successful, at helping patients of all ages overcome their fear.

Nitrous Oxide

This safe and beneficial form of sedation involves breathing in nitrous oxide gas during treatment to help you feel at ease and pain-free, and the side effects wear off immediately after treatment.

Intravenous (IV) Sedation

Also referred to as “twilight sleep,” IV sedation at the dentist has significant advantages for patients who are in need of more complex dental treatment that requires a little bit more time in the dental chair. The IV helps you fall asleep quickly and involves constant monitoring and adjustments until your dental work is complete.

General Anesthesia

General anesthesia is another sedation option for complete sleep while we work. You won’t feel any pain or even remember your treatment. This is ideal if you’re interested in extensive full mouth reconstruction. We’re carefully watching your vital signs the entire time to ensure your absolute care and safety.

Your Best Interests are Always in Mind

There’s no need to feel embarrassed or ashamed about your dental anxiety. Please talk to us about how sedation dentistry can dramatically improve your smile and your dental experience. We’re here six days a week and always ready to listen.

Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
