At Blaisdell Family Dentistry, we make a conscious effort to help our patients feel comfortable. Though our chairs are cushy as can be, we are not talking about physical comfort here. We are talking about emotional comfort. In other words, peace of mind.
Here are four ways we are passionate about your peace of mind at Blaisdell Family Dentistry in Boise:
1. We don’t judge you. Drs. Lynn R. and Craig Blaisdell have devoted their professional careers to promoting oral health and creating beautiful smiles.
The thoughtful dental team at Blaisdell Family Dentistry 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. Drs. Lynn R and Craig Blaisdell is a pro at administering barely noticeable injections.
3. We help you with your dental anxiety. Fear of the dentist is far 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. Some patients get claustrophobic because they need to lie still in the chair for treatment.
Sleep dentistry (oral conscious sedation) not only assists in pain management, it allows you to sleep through your appointment. There are different levels of sedation, so you don’t have to be completely unconscious unless you want to be. If you would like more details about sedation, call 208-377-9696 to schedule a consultation. We can review the different levels of oral conscious sedation so you can settle upon the one that is best for you.
4. We communicate with you. Our dentists have established a reputation as effective and professional communicators. Procedures are thoroughly explained and all your vital questions will be answered prior to treatment. If you are not sure you want to initiate treatment, we are happy to let you look at it for a while. There is no rush.
If you have postponed dental treatment for any reason, we encourage you to give the team at Blaisdell Family Dentistry a try. Neglecting your oral health has serious consequences. Call today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to meeting you.
