Making Dental Health Easy

We have many solutions to help eliminate any level of stress. At Dental Care of Stamford we always focus on your comfort and convenience to ensure that your visit is as pleasant as possible. But sometimes you need a little more help to get past the fear. Fear is a powerful emotion. It’s designed to protect you and ensure your safety and survival, but in some cases fear sticks like glue, outliving it is a usefulness and sometimes preventing you from getting the dental care you want. There are a number of alternatives, both natural and medicine-based that are safe and effective at helping to reduce stress:

Nitrous Oxide

Safe and easy medicated air that you breath in through a small mask that is placed over nose. It gives you a detached floating feeling which will wear off shortly once the mask is removed.

Oral Conscious Sedation

A pill that relaxes you and puts you into a dreamy state of consciousness. Most people have very little memory of their entire dental visit.

IV Sedation

Our board certified dental anesthesiologist places a small IV in your arm. You sleep right through your dental visit! Your visit will be relaxed, comfortable and pain–free!

Relaxation Aids

We offer cable TV with over 100 channels, plus Hulu and Netflix. We also offer blankets, music, headphones and even paraffin treatment to help keep you calm and relaxed.

Preferred Solutions for Easing Anxiety

We understand that that going to the dentist is not that easy for everyone. Your fears and anxiety are real! And we are here to help you  so you can get the dental care you need. 1. Desensitization and 2. Nitrous oxide are two patient preferred options for mild – moderate levels of stress.  

Desensitization

A Medicine-Free Approach to Fear Elimination

Using desensitization, a medicine-free approach to fear elimination, Dr. Jerry Simon has discovered the key to unlocking your brain so that the fear can go away all on it’s own.

Dr. Simon has extensive training in Neurolinguistic Programming, Transformational Grammar and Ericksonian Hypnosis. By combining these approaches and the work of many others Dr. Simon has developed a quick and effective treatment for eliminating dental fear.

In one brief conversation, everything can change forever! Just call the office and let us know that you experience dental fear and would like Dr. Simon to help. That’s all it takes to get started on the road to dental health.

Nitrous Oxide

Minimal, Safe & Effective Sedation

If you feel very apprehensive, but don’t want to be sleepy then nitrous oxide is available to make you feel more comfortable. This is an extremely safe and effective sedation technique where you are awake, but very relaxed.

Nitrous oxide is commonly known as laughing gas. It’s a medicated air that you breath in through a small mask that is placed over you nose. It gives you a detached floating feeling which will wear off shortly after the mask is removed.

There are also other medicine-based alternatives available so if you think that you might like something stronger then nitrous oxide to help you through then please click here to learn about sedation dentistry.

What Our Patients Say

I came here absolutely petrified – Literally shaking in my chair. Everybody here really put me at ease and made me feel comfortable and confident that they were not going to let anything bad happen to me. I had the sedation dentistry work done and it was a complete success. I didn’t remember feeling anything and my recovery was minimal – I was up and at-’em by the next day. And now when I come here I don’t need the sedation. I feel comfortable enough to let Dr. Simon do what he needs to do.

Lisa

I had some pretty crummy dental experiences when I was younger. As a physician I knew the importance of dental care, but I really ignored my teeth. I got a few flyers from Dental Care of Stamford and thought well maybe I’ll just call. I had such a pleasant experience from my first contact with them. I was quite nervous and asked for sedation dentistry. I don’t even remember the experience so it was great! I’ve come back since then and I really recommend Dental Care of Stamford to my patients, friends, family and anyone else.
