Stress-Free Dentistry in Sudbury, MA

We recommend that patients visit the dentist every six months for a routine dental exam. Routine dental visits allow your dentist to provide an early diagnosis of dental issues ranging from routine to complex dental concerns. Treating dental concerns early may prevent the need for invasive treatment. No matter the amount of time you’ve been away from the dentist, our dental care team encourages patients to schedule a routine dental checkup at Sudbury Dental Arts.

During every visit to Sudbury Dental Arts, your dentist will go over all steps of your treatment process to ensure you are informed and comfortable with your treatment. If you have any questions about the treatment process, we encourage our patients to speak openly and candidly with our dental care team. We will gladly answer any question you may have regarding your treatment process. We are a team of highly trained dental professionals who are committed to helping each of our patients achieve a healthier smile.

Have you considered Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry can be a useful tool to aid in the battle against dental fear and anxiety. Your Sudbury dentist will work with you to review your medical history, oral health, and lifestyle to determine if oral sedation is right for you. Administered in pill form, a prescribed oral sedative can enable anxious patients to feel calm and relaxed. This will not put you to sleep. You will be alert and responsive during a procedure.

Alternatively, you can try non-sedation methods to overcome your dental fears. Consider bringing a trusted friend or family member with you to your next appointment. Another alternative includes wearing your headphones and listening to your favorite music during your visit.

At Sudbury Dental Arts we can help treat a wide range of dental concerns in a safe, relaxing environment. We value our patients and their experience in our Sudbury dental office, so we work with you to meet your needs. Give us a call at (978) 218-2580, or request an appointment online today.
