Patient comfort is a top priority at Gateway Dental! We make every effort to ensure your experience at our office is pleasant by providing you with state-of-the-art technology and an attentive staff. Dr. Fruithandler also uses the best dental anesthetics to ensure that you don’t feel a thing during procedures.
Digital dentistry, such as x-rays and our intraoral camera, allows us to accurately diagnose our patients’ needs in a timely manner so many patients are able to avoid costly procedures and painful predicaments like a dental infection.
Patients who feel anxious about dental procedures can discuss their concerns with Dr. Fruithandler to determine if nitrous oxide (laughing gas) might help them feel more at ease. Laughing gas can be used to help patients relax during many types of procedures and it’s even safe for children. Because laughing gas leaves your system quickly, it’s safe for you to drive home and participate in normal activities after your procedure.
And of course, if there’s anything we can do to make your procedure more comfortable, just let one of our friendly team members know. We hope that we will be your dental home for many years to come.
