How Does relaxed Dentistry Work?
You are given a small pill to take an hour prior to your dental appointment. Your companion will accompany you to the office. By the time you arrive, you will be very drowsy.
When you arrive at our office, you will be escorted into the comfort room, covered with a thick, warm blanket and placed on a monitor to watch your vital signs. After you are comfortable, Dr. Wigger and the experienced clinical team at Louisville Dental Care will take care of your dental needs.
When your treatment is completed, your companion will return you home to finish your comfortable, relaxing day.
