For many patients, visiting the dentist is an anxiety-ridden experience, whether due to past experiences or stories shared by others. However, in the long run, avoiding visiting a dentist causes more harm than good. Without regular preventative dental care, cavities, gingivitis, and other oral health-related issues can arise and become severe conditions without proper treatment.
From gentle, professional cleanings and x-rays to sedation methods, the friendly dentists and staff at Comfort Dentists of Plantation are committed to making your visits a relaxed and comfortable experience.

Gentle Professional Cleaning
People over the age of four or five should visit their dentist for a professional teeth cleaning at least twice a year. To maintain oral health, it is very important that you stay current on the condition of your teeth so that if problems are detected, they can be treated early to avoid developing more serious issues.
At Comfort Dentists of Plantation, we provide comfortable, gentle teeth cleanings, specifically to detect, deter and prevent gum disease. If we find a cause for concern, we may recommend a deep gum cleaning to remove tartar below the gum line, smooth out surfaces where plaque builds up and eliminate bacterial infection.
Many people put off visiting the dentist due to apprehension and fear, neglecting important dental work in the process. Prior to your treatment, you'll receive medication through an intravenous line. This will place you in a calm, relaxed state. IV sedation places the patient in a deep level of sedation - you will not be able to communicate during the procedure.
Nitrous Oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option your dentist may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have.
Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes, you should start to feel the effects of the Nitrous Oxide. You won't fall asleep; instead, the Nitrous Oxide simply puts you at ease and eliminates any anxiety you may normally experience.
