At Ann Arbor Smiles, we seek to be your compassionate dental office. Our dentists and hygienists welcome your concerns or questions about your care and will make sure you are in control of your entire appointment. Your comfort and safety is our number one priority. Deep relaxation can help make your dental appointment fly by!
Deep Relaxation Without Medication
We encourage patients to bring in their own music. Did you know you can listen to your headphones or earbuds throughout most procedures? Your own calming music or audiobook can reduce the stress and anxiety you may have about your appointment. In addition, there are a lot of meditation applications for your smartphone that can assist with reminding you to take deep cleansing breaths during your appointment.
Ann Arbor Smiles also offers memory foam cushions and complimentary blankets so you can relax in comfort and make yourself at home.
Relax With A Little Assistance
If you have a history of anxiety or are apprehensive about your upcoming appointment, or too nervous to schedule one, there are other options for your care as well. Please talk to your Ann Arbor Smiles dentist to see which option is right for you.
Sedation Dentistry is offered at Ann Arbor Smiles in the following ways:
- Nitrous Oxide Sedation or laughing gas that produces a mild calming effect and a small pain relieving effect.
- Oral Conscious Sedation, where you take a small sedative an hour before your appointment.
- Now offering IV Sedation, a deeper sedation with an amnesic effect that allows you to rest through your procedure.
