Have you been putting off getting the dental treatment you need because of anxiety or even fear? You’re not alone. People of all ages can be affected by dental anxiety, especially if they’ve had a bad dental experience in the past.
Our League City dental team is on a mission to change the way our patients think about going to the dentist, and we take our commitment to your comfort seriously. Before or during your visit, we encourage you to share your feelings with us so that we can cater our approach to meet your needs. We will work at your pace, explain everything in detail so there are no surprises, and provide you with modern amenities to help you feel more at-home.
Tired of staring at the ceiling during dental visits? Watch TV or a movie instead! Your appointment will be over before you know it.
Nothing goes better with a movie than a soft pillow and a cozy blanket. You might just forget you’re in the dental chair!
If you arrive early or are waiting for your child’s visit to wrap up, treat yourself to a bottled water or a freshly-brewed cup of coffee or tea.
Freshen up after your appointment with a warm aromatherapy towel. You’ll leave our office feeling revitalized and ready to take on the day.
Our kids’ play area makes going to the dentist a fun and non-threatening experience. We have video games, toys, and books for children of all ages.
Dental visits can be scary for kids, so we reward our younger patients by letting them pick a prize from the treasure chest after every appointment.
If blankets and pillows aren’t enough to calm your nerves, we also offer nitrous oxide. Often referred to as "laughing gas" because of its euphoric effects, nitrous oxide is one of the safest anti-anxiety agents used in dentistry. Nitrous oxide can be administered with just a mask over the nose (no shots!), making it an excellent option for children.
Although nitrous oxide works very quickly, its effects are short-lived and easily reversed by breathing pure oxygen for several minutes. You will feel completely back to normal before leaving our office.
Using state-of-the-art dental lasers, Dr. Kunjumon can prepare teeth for fillings without drilling or numbing shots. Lasers remove the decayed parts of a tooth while leaving the healthy parts intact, allowing for faster and more comfortable dental visits. Visit our Technology page to learn more about how dental lasers make scalpels, shots, and sutures completely obsolete!
Don’t let fear or anxiety keep you from having the healthy and beautiful smile you deserve. Visit Touchstone Dentistry today and let League City dentist Dr. Agee Kunjumon show you just how different a dental office can be!
