Dentistry doesn’t have to hurt
Many people think they must tolerate dental discomfort and myofascial pain. They assume that dental treatment has to hurt – at least a little. The team at Pasadena Prosthodontics and General Dentistry works hard to dispel these misconceptions, creating a relaxing environment for consultation and treatment.
- Friendly people – A pleasant voice on the telephone, a warm welcome at the door, and sincere compassion before, during, and after you are in the chair are the hallmarks of our care.
- Calming atmosphere – The office, from serene décor to a low noise level, is designed to reduce tension.
- Pain management gatekeeper – The dentist takes as much time as needed to decipher problems – both dental issues and why you may feel ill-at-ease about treatment. Together, you calmly discuss how to proceed, with options that make sense for your personality, lifestyle, and budget.
- Relaxed treatment environment – This is not an assembly line practice. When you are in treatment, you receive the doctor’s full attention at an unhurried pace. At any time, you may ask for a momentary break, ask questions, or get up to stretch.
- Sedation – We find that these techniques and the gentle touch of our doctors sufficiently soothes most patients. However, if you are very concerned about treatment or are scheduled for an extensive procedure, it may be a good idea to opt for sedation. Inhaled nitrous oxide gas produces an immediate carefree sense that wears off quickly, and oral sedation creates a deeper sense of tranquility. In either case you remain conscious, though you may become relaxed enough to doze during your appointment.
