Help Me Reno; I’m Afraid Of The Dentist!

Sparks Sleep Dentistry If you are afraid of your Reno cosmetic dentist, you are not alone. At The Reno Dentist, we encounter many nervous first-time dental patients. How do we calm their fears, provide a comfortable dental environment and earn lifelong clients?

1) We carefully explain the findings of the initial dental examination and thoroughly outline any recommended procedures. The consultation also includes a discussion about pain control medications. This allows our Reno general dentistry clients to make informed decisions about their oral health and necessary dental procedures.

2) Dr. Shane Sykes practices gentle, pain-free dentistry. Reno cosmetic or restorative dentistry treatment will not begin until you are numb. Keep in mind, however, that every dentistry patient reacts to numbing agents differently.

Speak up quickly if you start to feel discomfort. We will pause treatment, administer additional analgesic and wait until it takes effect. At The Reno Dentist, we never rush cosmetic dental or restorative procedures.

We will do our best to make you comfortable, whether you are receiving dental veneers, undergoing crown-lengthening treatment, having your teeth whitened, or replacing your old silver fillings.

3) We provide many in-office amenities at The Reno Dentist which help our dental patients focus on something pleasant during cosmetic dental treatment. Sometimes chemical-free diversions such as listening to your favorite music provide a diversion while letting you remain clear-headed.

At The Reno Dentist, we understand dental anxiety and will help you overcome it. We are located at 855 W Seventh St Ste 200 in Reno, 89503.
