At David A. Rice DDS in Elgin, we make a conscious effort to help our patients feel comfortable. Though our chairs are cushy as can be, we are not only talking about physical comfort here. We are talking about emotional comfort. In other words, peace of mind. Sometimes this involves sedation dentistry.
Here are four ways we are passionate about your peace of mind at David A. Rice, DDS in Elgin:
1. We don’t judge you. Dr. David Rice has devoted a professional career to promoting oral health and creating beautiful smiles.
The personable dental team at David A. Rice, DDS is here to help you, regardless of the state of your teeth. We have treated patients with severe tooth neglect, advanced gum disease, enamel erosion caused by eating disorders, tooth damage caused by illegal drug use, baby bottle tooth decay, tobacco-stained teeth: basically, every imaginable dental issue. We don’t live in a bubble. We understand and empathize with our patients.
2. We protect you from pain. From topical analgesics to oral conscious sedation, we will eliminate or minimize pain as best we can.
3. We help you with your dental anxiety. Fear of the dentist is more common than you might realize and certainly nothing to be ashamed of. The perceived loss of control, instruments poking in your mouth, and teeth being worked on is not pleasant. Sedation dentistry may be just what you need.
4. We communicate with you. Procedures are thoroughly explained and all your critical questions will be answered prior to treatment. If you are not sure you want to initiate treatment, we are happy to let you think about it for a while. There is no rush.
If you have postponed dental treatment for any reason, we encourage you to call David A. Rice DDS in Elgin. Neglecting your oral health has serious consequences. We provide general and family dentistry services. Call today to schedule an appointment.
