Technology and Nitrous Oxide Keep You Relaxed
Dr. Betts uses technology that keeps your family’s care fast and comfortable. For instance, Spectra cavity detectors during your dental exams help him find decay in its earliest stages with less poking and prodding. And we won’t have to put bulky paper in your mouth for digital X-rays.
Though we numb your mouth with local anesthesia for any procedures where you might experience discomfort, you can also get nitrous oxide if you want it. We use nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), which is so safe that even your children can receive it. It also takes effect quickly and wears off quickly. You’ll even be able to drive yourself home afterward!
Personal Touches Soothe Your Nerves
We’re happy to personalize your procedure to make your appointment a stress-free experience. For instance, we can schedule a lengthier visit for you if it helps to take it slow. Blankets are available if you feel chilly while in our chair, and we can offer a pillow for additional support.
If you’re ready to overcome your dental anxiety, call 256-274-8680 or use our online form to make an appointment. Our Decatur, AL dentist office is located at 2012 Danville Park Drive SW, a short drive from Decatur Mall.
