Help Me Royal Oak; I’m Afraid Of The Dentist!

Dental Exam Royal Oak If you are afraid of your Royal Oak cosmetic dentist, you are not alone. At Duffield Dentistry, we encounter many nervous first-time dental patients. How do we calm their fears, provide a comfortable dental environment and earn lifelong clients?

1) We carefully explain the findings of the initial dental exam and thoroughly outline any recommended procedures. The consultation also includes a discussion about pain control. This allows our our cosmetic and restorative dentistry clients to make informed decisions about their oral health and necessary dental procedures.

2) Dr. Larry Duffield practices gentle, pain-free dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry treatment will not begin until you are numb. Keep in mind, however, that every dentistry patient reacts to numbing agents and sedation medications differently.

Speak up quickly if you start to feel discomfort. We will pause treatment, administer additional analgesic and wait until it takes effect. At Duffield Dentistry, we never rush cosmetic dental or restorative procedures.

We will do our best to make you comfortable, whether you are receiving dental veneers, undergoing crown-lengthening treatment, having your teeth whitened, or replacing your old silver fillings.

3) We provide many in-office amenities at Duffield Dentistry which help our dental patients focus on something pleasant during cosmetic dental treatment. Sometimes chemical-free diversions such as listening to your favorite music provide a diversion while letting you remain clear-headed.

At Duffield Dentistry, we understand dental anxiety and will help you overcome it. We are located at 2009 Crooks Rd in Royal Oak, 48073.
