What’s New in Dentistry

Modern dentistry bears little resemblance to the dentistry of ten
or twenty years ago. Today’s techniques, instruments and materials literally eliminate the pain and discomfort of dentistry of the past. If you haven’t been to a dentist in a long time, you are in for a surprise, our patients have been known to fall asleep in our comfortable massage chairs.

Dr. Castaneda received extensive training in Dental Phobia Management
during her residency at Mt Sinai Hospital in New York City.

To further help alleviate fear of dental treatment, nitrous oxide sedation
is available. Virtual reality goggles can be used which allow the patient
to view a movie while undergoing a procedure or stereo headphones can be used to tune in the music and tune out the dental sounds.

Dr. Castaneda is skilled in soothing the anxious patient, and our patience
and encouragement have gone a long way in providing our patients with
ease and comfort in their anxious moments.

Pharmaceutical anti-anxiety medication is available to those patients
with higher levels of fear. As a last resort, an Anesthesiologist can be scheduled to perform I.V. sedation while Dr. Castaneda performs her magic.
