Our Sedation Options Will Help You Fully Relax

We offer you two great sedation methods to ease your dental anxiety. Inhaled sedation uses laughing gas to give you a warm, fuzzy, slightly euphoric feeling. Its effects begin almost immediately, and in no time your mind will rest easy. Many patients with mild dental anxiety find this type of sedation very beneficial.

If you have more severe dental fear, then oral conscious sedation may work better. We’ll prescribe a small, FDA-approved pill to take before your appointment. By the time we begin your procedure or exam, you’ll feel completely relaxed all over. You may feel groggy, but you’ll remain awake and able to communicate with our staff.

Our Office Features the Latest Dental Technology

We’ve invested in advanced dental tools to make your care as comfortable, accurate, and efficient as possible. Our CT scanner uses 3-D imaging to give us detailed views of your teeth, roots, nerves, and bones. If you need dental implants, we’ll use a computer-guided procedure for precisely placing them. Plus, we can make strong, beautiful dental crowns in-office using the CAD/CAM technology of our CEREC system.

Our 30 Years of Experience Means You’ll Get Exceptional Dental Care

Over the last three decades, we’ve had the opportunity to help many thousands of patients achieve happy, healthy, lasting smiles. One reason we’ve been able to do this is that our two dentists, Drs. Smith and Wetterhus, have been trained by some of the best instructors in the dental industry.

With each course or seminar completed, our dentists have gained valuable knowledge to add to their already impressive expertise. For you, this translates into a fantastic dental experience and a bright, healthy smile.

We hope you’ve enjoyed reading our new Puyallup dental blog. Call us at 253-999-9419 today with any questions you have or to make an appointment for dental care.
