Amenities for Extra Comfort
We have pillows and blankets for your comfort in the chair. Water, coffee and juices are available for your refreshment. If you need extra energy, you can choose from a number of light snacks and protein shakes.
Advanced Technology for Minimally Invasive Treatment
One of the ways we ensure your comfort is through our use of advanced technology. Our high-tech tools and procedures allow us to make your treatments minimally invasive, very efficient and far more comfortable than what was available in the past.
Dental microscope for minimally invasive precision
Dr. Bergmann uses a high-magnification dental microscope when performing delicate restorative procedures. Using the microscope, he can remove only the minimal amount of tooth structure necessary when preparing teeth or clearing away decay. He is also able to use extremely small instruments which make his microscope-assisted procedures precise and minimally invasive. This technology allows him to repair instead of remake existing restorations which could save you money. He is willing to spend the extra time necessary to save your teeth.
Ultrasonic scalers with comfort adjustments
Our ultrasonic scalers use high-frequency vibrations to remove the accumulated plaque and calculus from your teeth. Ultrasonic scalers are gentler on your teeth than traditional scaling instruments and can be adjusted for patient comfort.
When giving injections, Dr. Bergmann and Dr. Izu very slowly and gently administer a special anesthetic that has a very similar pH to that of the body. This anesthetic agent does not produce the stinging and burning sensations that occur with other formulations. Patients have commented that they barely felt the injection or did not feel it at all.
We have several sedation options for patients who are very anxious or have jaw muscles that are really tight and need to be loosened. We can provide nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. We also provide IV sedation administered and monitored by a certified anesthesiologist who specializes on dental procedures. Patients love him because he is so gentle and makes their dental treatment pain free, relaxed and comfortable. Dr. Bergmann or Dr. Izu will let you know which option is most appropriate for your circumstances.
