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.

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.
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.
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.
