You may have mixed feelings about the dentist. You know that you want a healthy, bright smile, but you also know that you don’t want to let a dentist work in your mouth. It’s okay to feel that way. In fact, it’s perfectly normal!
What we try to do here in Dr. Komarnyckyj’s office is to help you in relieving dental anxiety and have a great visit so that you can focus more on having a healthy smile and less on the worry about your procedure. We do that in several ways.
For those patients who would feel more comfortable with dental sedation, we offer oral conscious sedation to help you relax during your treatment. Just enough sedation is administered to allow you to be completely relaxed while still being aware of your surroundings. Many patients do not remember their dental treatment. We want you to feel completely comfortable during your entire procedure, so let us know what questions you have!
One thing that many patients fear is the injection of anesthesia before a procedure. Even though they know numbing is coming, it is the needle itself that causes fear. We are taking steps to make the entire process comfortable! We begin with a topical anesthetic to numb your gums before completing the full numbing process. This allows you to relax completely while we are preparing your mouth for treatment.
Ultimately, we want you to be comfortable during your appointment. We’ve found that if you feel more at home, you will feel more relaxed! During your procedure, feel free to ask us for pillows, blankets, or even an eye shade to wear! Sometimes just being able to close your eyes and think about other things is enough to help you relax throughout your appointment. We also offer a nice treat after your procedure is complete!
Sometimes medical offices feel so sterile and busy that it’s difficult to ever feel like you can relax. We try to counteract that by offering longer appointments. This doesn’t mean we will keep you waiting. Instead, Dr. Komarnyckyj will join you in the patient room and take his time to work with you. You will have a chance to get all of your questions answered and will never feel like the doctor is swooping in and swooping out like you find in other offices!
Nothing is worse than going into an office and feeling like everyone can hear your entire appointment! We offer private operatories where you can relax and feel comfortable discussing your treatment options with Dr. K. You’ll never feel like you’re one of the crowd, and you will know confidently that you have our full attention.
As our patient, you will know that we are focused on YOU. Each of the comfort measures we have explained above are our ways to show you that YOU matter to us. Your ability to relax in our office is paramount to your treatment, so never hesitate to let us know how you are feeling while you’re here. We will do our best to make sure you have a fantastic appointment!
