Dr. Hosaka understands that sometimes, dental treatment can be daunting. He has helped many patients who have had bad experiences at the dentist in the past. Most notably, he has helped a big burly gentleman who had avoided going to the dentist for almost 40 years due to a bad dental experience he had when he was in the military! Now he is a regular patient who has had treatments like extractions, deep cleanings, and crowns without trouble.
What Will My First Dental Appointment Be Like at Hosaka Family Dental?
Dr. Hosaka will tailor your dental visit to your needs to make sure that you are comfortable. Typically, he will do a lot of explaining and show-and-tell. He will take a gentle step-by-step approach, explaining and showing you what is going to happen before doing that step of the procedure.
We have a big screen tv set up in each dental treatment room where you can learn details about your oral health and dental treatments that we recommend. During your dental treatment, we can play your favorite music, TV show, or movie to help you relax.
Does Hosaka Family Dental Utilize Nitrous Oxide Gas?
We have nitrous oxide gas (also called laughing gas) available for our patients who would like to be extra relaxed during their dental care. Nitrous gas is an odorless gas that is inhaled through a soft nasal mask. It works quickly to give you a relaxed floaty feeling. After treatment is finished, the gas is turned off, and it leaves your body in a few minutes.
You will feel perfectly normal and are able to drive home.
