Don’t Delay Treatments – Call Us Today!
At Parker & Pennington Dentistry, we are passionate about helping our patients have optimal oral health. We know that not everyone has perfect teeth and gums, and problems develop from time to time. We encourage patients to schedule any recommended treatments as soon as possible after we diagnose the problem.
Unfortunately, dental conditions do not heal over time. They will continue to progress and worsen until treatment is received. If you wait too long for your treatment, there is the possibility we may recommend a more in-depth treatment. The longer you delay treatment, the greater your risk of experiencing a dental emergency.
Be Honest with Us
One of our main goals is to ensure our patients remain comfortable while in our care. If you have been postponing your appointment because you are nervous about treatment or visiting our office, we can help. It is not uncommon to experience dental anxiety, especially before an unfamiliar treatment. We are happy to explain the needed treatment further and the steps of the procedure if that would be helpful to you.
Be sure to take a look at the comfort amenities we have listed on our website: https://myfriendlydentists.com/our-practice/comfort-amenities/. We are happy to provide patients with blankets and pillows to keep them cozy during their treatment. There are also noise-canceling headphones available to help block out the sounds of the office. Tissue comfort gels may also be applied to eliminate any potential discomfort.
Sedation is Available
We never want your nervous feelings to keep you from getting the dental care you need to restore your oral health. Sedation dentistry is available to help patients who are nervous during long procedures.
If you need to schedule a postponed treatment or you are due for your routine hygiene examination appointment, be sure to contact our office located in St. Marys, GA. We are here to help you and your family with all your dental needs. We look forward to seeing you soon!
