Your Comfort and Your Confidence Come First

At Southfield Family Dental Center we take the time to get to know you, and explain all the available treatment options so that you can feel confident about your treatment program and confident in your smile!

Your Southfield dentists always begin by making sure you are comfortable, offering the latest advancements in sedation dentistry for those patients who find sedation helpful. We are now able to complete many procedures, from root canals to crowns, and even deep cleanings, while patients are mildly sedated and relaxed, avoiding the anxiety and stress that can be associated with long or repeated treatments.

Our 3-Step Comfort Injection Technique

Step 1: High-Strength Numbing GelStep 2: Warmed AnestheticStep 3: Our High-Tech Secret Weapon

Step 1: High-Strength Numbing Gel
We use a high-strength topical gel that provides profound numbing of the gums. This gel is made of 20% Benzocaine, and it is applied before an injection is given to help eliminate any initial “pinch” that might otherwise be felt from the point of the needle.
Step 2: Warmed Anesthetic
Southfield Family Dental Center is proud to offer dental technology specifically designed to bring anesthetic solution to body temperature just before an injection for your optimal comfort. When normal room-temperature shots are given, the body tends to amplify the pain felt from the colder anesthetic being pushed into the gums. Warming the anesthetic can significantly reduce this discomfort. This step has been shown to decrease instances of pain felt when receiving a shot.
Step 3: Our High-Tech Secret Weapon
A revolutionary new technology called the Onpharma is the secret weapon of our 3-Step Comfort Process. Southfield Family Dental Center is one of the few practices in the area using Onpharma, which is a high-tech buffering agent to the gums during an injection. When we use Onpharma buffering, patients don’t even realize that they’ve received shots!  Come in and experience the difference for yourself! When we take care of you and your smile, we want you to feel comfortable every step of the way.

 

Onpharma makes dental care more comfortable for patients of all ages, but especially younger patients and those who feel dental anxiety.

Gentle Dental Care

To us, the only way to provide excellent care and wonderful patient experiences is with a soft touch. We take this very seriously, going above and beyond to make sure our patients are comfortable. If you feel nervous about or even afraid of dental treatment, you’re not alone. It’s actually quite common. Our goal is to always provide compassionate, gentle care.

Sedation Dentistry

For some patients, being sedated during their dental appointment is important. In most cases, we’re able to give our patients medicine that totally relaxes them and allows them to rest during their visit. We then complete as much of their treatment as possible, after which they regain alertness feeling comfortable and refreshed.

We also have nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help patients feel at ease. This safe and easy dental sedation option helps many patients get comfortable, especially children and adolescents who experience dental anxiety. In addition, laughing gas can make dental visits easier, better experiences for patients with mental or physical impairments.

When talking with you about sedation dentistry, we will review your health history, including medications you are taking and habits such as alcohol consumption and smoking. We take all factors into careful consideration when planning treatment, and we’ll go through the proper preparation steps with you prior to your dental sedation visit. Your comfort and safety are both of utmost concern to us.

Patient Amenities

At Southfield Family Dental Center in Southfield, MI, we have many patient amenities to make your dental experiences enjoyable, including flatscreen TVs, internet, and complimentary beverages. You may be surprised to see coffee and bottled water available in our lobby along with a courtesy internet bar, but we believe the difference is in the details! Your comfort is our top priority.
