Creating a Pleasant Dental Care Experience
At Lande Family Dentistry, we have undergone training by DOCS, an organization that promotes technologically advanced methods of treatment that promote a higher level of patient comfort and relaxation. We understand that some patients feel uncomfortable at the dentist's office, and we take every possible measure to make all our patients feel welcome and relaxed. Our office is comfortable for patients of all ages, complete with televisions and toys for young patients.
We also offer multiple methods of sedation: nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, to mention a few. Nitrous oxide is a blend of nitrogen and oxygen inhaled during treatment, helping the patient feel calm and pleasant. It wears off quickly, and it is safe for patients to drive themselves home after treatment. Oral conscious sedation is achieved by taking a pill that places the patient in a state of ultimate relaxation. In this state, patients remain able to respond to questions, but will have little or no memory of treatment afterward.
We recommend undergoing routine exams twice a year. During each visit, we will take x-rays of your teeth and gums, and provide video images to help you better understand your current state of oral health. Dr. Lande will identify your dental health needs and, if necessary, present treatment options. Dental cleanings are typically scheduled for a separate visit.
Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep apnea is an all-too-common condition in which the airways become obstructed during sleep, causing snoring and potentially hundreds of brief awakenings throughout the night. We provide custom mouthpieces that can help keep the airways clear, allowing you to get quality rest and prevent more serious side effects of sleep apnea.
If you have a severely decayed tooth that has resulted in nerve damage, endodontics (more commonly called a "root canal"), can preserve the root of the tooth. The endodontic procedure is completed by restoring the internal structure with a post and core and the external with a dental crown.
We work with our patients to place the dental care they need within their budget. We offer CareCredit®, and accept most major credit cards except American Express.
