A Solution for Dental Anxiety

Dental anxiety is a condition that plagues many children and adults. It can occur on any level or severity – ranging from sweaty palms and a racing heart in the waiting room or completely paralyzed with fear at the mere thought of sitting in the dental chair. Fear of the dentist is a primary reason why patients don’t follow through on restorative dental work, address dental emergencies or keep their routine dental cleanings. In fact, according to Colgate, an estimated 9% to 15% of Americans avoid dental care due to fear or anxiety. Sedation dentistry is the answer to this unfortunate but very real problem.

Reasons for Getting Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry has revolutionized the way patients receive modern dentistry, especially if you are someone who would otherwise avoid necessary dental health care. There are many reasons for getting sedation dentistry, and very few stipulations as to why a patient couldn’t receive it.

If you can identify with the following, sedation dentistry may be right for you:

  • Mild, moderate or severe anxiety surrounding the dentist
  • Fear of pain or needles
  • Strong aversion to sights, smells (latex) or noises (dental drill) of the dental office
  • Severe gag reflex
  • Bad past dental experience
  • Difficulty sitting still (physical or mental condition)
  • Lengthy dental appointment requiring multiple procedures

Types of Sedation

At Riverwood Dental, we are pleased to offer you a variety of sedation dentistry options based on your personal needs and preferences. To help you relax in the dental chair, you may choose one of the following:

  • Inhalation Sedation (or Laughing Gas): The most common form of sedation is a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen that is breathed through a small mask or nosepiece. It instantly helps you relax and is easily controlled by our dentist. This form of sedation is safe for kids, tapers off quickly and allows you to drive yourself home from your appointment if you wish.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation: This type of sedation involves taking a prescribed pill prior to your dental procedure. You can expect to remain conscious and able to communicate with us, but you’ll be kept in a relaxed and serene state of mind. With oral conscious sedation, you will need to bring someone to drive you home.

Don’t Be Shy About Sharing Your Fears and Concerns

We treat patients like members of our own family. We want you to be transparent with us and open about your fears and concerns. Please don’t hesitate to discuss your dental anxiety or physical limitations surrounding dental visits. In order to prepare for your appointment using sedation dentistry, it is best if we have this information beforehand. If anxiety or fear has kept you from giving your smile the attention it needs and deserves, please know that a relaxing and stress-free dental appointment awaits you at Riverwood Dental!

Ross D.
Visited Riverwood Dental for the first time. Great experience. Would definitely recommend.
Eve
I called them when I was in serious pain from a previous dentist office who gave me a deep filling right over my tooth nerve :(. I was in serious pain. Dr. Mansouri and his team took the time to take x-rays and give me a full consultation on what was causing me so much pain. He referred me to an amazing endodontist, Yanina F., but the next appt they had was for a couple weeks out and I was in too much pain. I ended up having my molar extracted by another facility who did a great job, and now feel sooo much better. I am so grateful for the kindness and care that Dr Mansouri and his entire team showed to me. Great dental office with people who actually care. Thank you so much!!!
Shanta K.

Ashley F.
This was by far the best experience with a dental office I have ever had! The staff was amazing. They explained everything in detail and made conversation to connect with me during my visit so I didn't feel awkward or like I was just another patient in for a routine office visit. The views are fabulous and the office is cheery, bright, nice and very clean. I will not be going anywhere else!
Shahnas H.
Dr. Mansouri and the staff are great. First, the entire staff is well trained, courteous and professional. The office is impeccably clean, and you get to watch a movie while you get your cleaning!

Dr. Mansouri himself is the real reason to visit the dentist. His precision and his techniques are pain free! The prices are reasonable and he takes insurance. Highly recommended!!!
Ted A.

Karen P.
I have been searching for the right dental practice for me for over 10 years but didn't find one that I vibed with or trusted too much. But Mansouri Family Dental Care was everything I was looking for and more! The staff were extremely friendly. They explained everything that I needed to know about my dental health and made me feel as though they really cared about my teeth and well-being.
I'm so happy that I found my family dentist for life!

It's been over 9 months since my last cleaning, all my own fault. But the other day I went in for a deep cleaning and my hygienist was so diligent and efficient! She made sure she got all of my teeth and gave me a goody bag filled with new dental supplies so that I can keep up with my hygiene!

Dr. Micheal is a funny man! Him and his wife are so humble. Their office staff are also sweet people, they're like a big friendly family! My husband and I love going there.
Shan M.
I've been to a lot of dentists over the years ever since my favorite dentist retired. It has been a long search for someone to who has mastered the professional trade of dentistry, the people skills to help a patient feel comfortable, and the office/staff recruitment, training, and management know-how. When you think about it, it's an awful lot for one person to figure it all out and handle. And Dentistry isn't like so many other 9-5 jobs. There's a lot at stake with someone's smile in the balance. But at Mansouri's Dental Care and associates is definitely worth the stop by
Sarah J.

Rachel G.
Dr. Mansouri did and amazing job putting veneers for my front teeth. He is a perfectionist and he really enjoys what he is doing. My smile is now perfect. Thank you Dr. Mansouri!!!
Ana H.
From the first call to the first visit, I received nothing more then excellent treatment. I described my fear of going to the dentist over the phone and was remember when I arrived. Scared out of my mind, the Hygienist took Great care of me. I have periodontal gum disease and have always needed numbing to get my type of cleaning. But not this day! He told me, relax I got you and that he did. No numbing meds needed not to mention the level of discomfort was very minimal. Afterwards, Dr. Azita came to examine my teeth and I was amazed at the difference she made in my visit. I am so excited to be apart of the Mansouri Family Dental Care, I'm referring any and everyone to this Beautiful office that overlooks the city during your treatment. Thank you and YES...I'm coming back!

How grateful I am that I can cite my experience with Dr. Maansour & his staff at Cosmetic Family & Implant Detistry. I was made to feel welcome and comfortable both by the friendly & competence of the staff. Dr. Maansour inspires the utmost confidence by the wealth of knowledge , skills and professionalism. Kudos and the highest recommendation to Dr. Maansour and everyone at Cosmetic Family & Implant Dentistry.
