Dr. Terry O’Neill is a Saint Paul dentist who has a special interest in helping his patients overcome their fears and anxiety about dentistry. His gentle approach to dental care combined with his selective choice in team members who provide exceptional patient care will give you an outstanding experience – every time!
We know that dental anxiety can run deep and make it difficult for you to seek the dental care you need to stay healthy.
Here are some ways we make you comfortable at the dentist:
Pain-Free Dental Care
Dr. O’Neill is one of only a handful of dentists in the nation that uses an innovative anesthetic technique that is far superior to traditional methods and takes your unique body chemistry into account. This results in better numbing than with traditional dental anesthetic options.
First, he uses a topical anesthetic to numb the area prior to applying the anesthetic. This is far superior and much stronger than traditional forms of topical anesthetic, making your injection painless.
Next, Dr. O’Neill uses a special type of anesthetic that addresses the pH levels in your body. Having a pH that is too low can result in an ineffective anesthetic experience or can take too long to take effect. He addresses this issue, allowing you to become completely numb faster so that your entire treatment experience is easy.
We also offer sedation dentistry for those patients who just can’t seem to relax in the dental chair. Sedation dentistry removes anxiety from your appointment through the use of prescription medication. We will monitor your vitals during your entire procedure. Most of our patients even doze off!
Once treatment is complete, they report having little to no memory of their procedure, just the way they prefer it! Because sedation makes treatment more relaxed, patients are able to improve their oral health without stress.
