Have you let your oral health fall to the back burner because you’re nervous about dental treatment? You’re not alone! Dental anxiety is one of the most common reasons people put off their visits, and it’s one that we’re committed to changing here at Pacific NW Dental Center.
Our beautiful office is laid out more like a warm and welcoming living room than a dental practice, because we want you to feel like you’re at home when you’re with us. If our cheerful atmosphere and modern amenities aren’t enough to calm your nerves, sedation dentistry can help you relax and get the treatment you need.
Oral conscious sedation involves taking a mild sedative shortly before your appointment. With just one pill, you will feel completely at ease throughout your visit! Our team can perform almost any treatment with the help of oral conscious sedation, from deep cleanings to wisdom teeth removal, and we’ll be done before you know it.
Although you will feel very relaxed, you will still be awake and able to communicate with us. You might feel a bit wobbly as the medication wears off, so it’s important to arrange for someone to drive you to and from your sedation appointment.
Nitrous oxide is one of the safest anti-anxiety agents used in dentistry. It’s a sweet-smelling blend of gases that creates a sense of giddiness and relaxation when inhaled, which is how it earned the nickname “laughing gas.” Nitrous oxide is administered with only a small mask over the nose (no shots), which makes it a great option for anxious patients of all ages. It’s also helpful for patients who have a strong gag reflex that interferes with dental treatment.
Don’t let dental anxiety get the best of your healthy, beautiful smile! Schedule a sedation consultation with Spanaway dentist Dr. Kwansoo Lee today and discover how different a dental visit can be.
Technology has improved almost every aspect of modern life, making our everyday experiences more comfortable and efficient. At Pacific NW Dental Center, we’re using technology to improve your dental experience, too! We’ve equipped our office with the latest equipment and amenities to make going to the dentist more pleasant than you ever thought possible.
Your visits will fly by while you’re watching your favorite TV show. We always turn on cartoons for the kids!
You can’t press pause on life, but with our free office-wide WiFi you’ll never be out of the loop.
Our soft neck pillows and warm, cozy blankets will completely change the way you think about the dental chair.
If you arrive early or are waiting for your child’s visit to wrap up, enjoy a freshly brewed cup of coffee or tea.
Isolite® is a small invention that will make a big difference in your dental visits. As its name implies, the Isolite mouthpiece performs two jobs at once: it isolates our work area with a flexible mouthpiece, and it illuminates your mouth from the inside. No more cotton rolls in your cheeks, no more bright lights overhead, and no more aching jaw when your visit is over! The best part? Isolite’s revolutionary self-aspirating mechanism keeps the area we’re working on moist without requiring any messy rinse breaks.
