No Reasons To Be Afraid of the Dentist in Monroe, LA
Are you afraid of the dentist? Many people are. It’s normal to have some anxiety about dental appointments. However, if your fear is keeping you from receiving dental care, it can be bad for your teeth, your overall health, and your wallet. Postponing dental visits can make problems worse, which means they’ll be difficult and expensive to treat.
If you have dental fear or anxiety, visit Monroe, LA dentist Dr. Finley! Bayou Dental Group is a comfortable, stress-free practice where you can finally relax and receive dental care. Our dentist and hygienists are known for their thorough but gentle hand and excellent chairside manner. We also provide a comfort menu that includes dental sedation.
Our practice is dedicated to your comfort. Expect smiles from our friendly staff who are ready to answer your questions. Relax in comfortable chairs and snuggle under blankets while you listen to your favorite music or watch movies. We also offer complimentary coffee and drinks.
Dr. Finley and our hygienists use advanced tools to make procedures pain-free and even more comfortable. We have safe, low-radiation digital X-rays, air abrasion technology, and lasers that minimize trauma while speeding up recovery times.
For anxious and fearful patients, Dr. Finley is certified to administer nitrous oxide and oral sedation to help you relax in the dental chair. Nitrous oxide (sometimes called laughing gas) is administered through a small mask placed over your nose. Almost immediately after inhalation, you will feel calm and comfortable. You are fully conscious, however, and can respond to instructions from your dentist. If you have severe anxiety or the procedure is lengthy and complicated, Dr. Finley can prescribe oral sedatives for a deeper level of sedation.
