Comfort Dental in Willoughby Hills, OH
Gentle Dental Care at Smile Brighter
If anxiety or fear is keeping you or your child away from the dentist, know that you aren’t alone. Children and adults commonly deal with dental anxieties that may keep them from getting the treatments they need to improve and maintain their oral health. However, anxiety shouldn’t make you suffer from a less-than-healthy smile. Thanks to comfort-focused dental solutions, Dr. Wallace and Dr. Stern of Willoughby Hills, OH provide patients with many ways in which they can feel at ease during their visits.
We proudly provide Ohio patients from Lake County, Eastlake, Kirtland, Wickliffe, and the surrounding areas with convenient accommodations including anesthetics, advanced technology, and more to ensure a comfortable dental experience.
Comfort In the Chair
Dental anxiety is a common condition where patients may feel fear, anxiety, or stress before or during dental visits. In some cases, even the thought of dental care itself can trigger anxiety. We understand that this fear of pain is what keeps many patients from getting the care they need. For this reason, we utilize different types of anesthetics to provide an extremely positive experience in the dental chair, free from pain.
Dr. Wallace and our team go to great lengths to ensure our patients’ comfort. At our practice, we take our time and do not rush through our treatments, which can sometimes add to anxiety for men, women, and children. We also walk patients through what we are doing so there are no unwanted surprises throughout the procedure.
The Importance of Patient Comfort
Just a few years ago, the concept of patient comfort was limited to the reduction of pain with the use of local anesthesia. At Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills, we understand that there is much more to comfort than numbing the treatment area. If you are fearful of the dentist, it can negatively affect your oral wellness and overall health. The longer you wait to see the dentist, the larger the risk there is for problems to set in. Maintaining regular six-month dental check-ups allows you to stay on top of your oral health and prevent many of the problems that cause pain and require more in-depth treatment.
By prioritizing your comfort, we can help ease any anxieties you may have so that you can get the high-quality dental care you need and deserve.
Amenities In Every Examination Room
Our office is equipped with the tools and technology necessary to lead to positive dental experiences. In our treatment rooms, you may watch cable television or listen to our satellite radio or your own music with our noise-canceling headphones. We keep blankets and pillows on hand, making sure that you are comfortable and well-supported.
We also understand that, even with such steps, there are those who feel anxious about dental care. For your comfort, we utilize a local anesthetic to numb the area for treatment, allowing patients to have a pain-free, positive experience in the dental chair.
Patient Safety Measures
We are dedicated to patient comfort and safety. During examinations and treatment, we wear gloves, glasses, masks, and scrub uniforms such as those worn in hospitals. Our practice follows the strict guidelines set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and our instruments are cleaned and sterilized based on the policies of the Centers for Safety and the American Dental Association. A state-of-the-art sterilization machine, specifically designed for dental drills is used for this purpose. After each appointment, our treatment rooms are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected for the next patient.
You deserve to feel positive about taking care of your smile with professional dental care. Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills, serving the Lake County area, treats every patient as an individual, and tends to needs accordingly.
