One of the things that keeps patients away from the dentist is fear and anxiety, which often revolves around pain or discomfort. Maybe they've experienced discomfort at the dentist in the past, or they fear the treatment they're going to need to restore their smile will be complicated and painful.
The first thing you should know is that you're not alone. Millions of Americans feel this same way about visiting their dentist.
Next, you should know that modern dentistry has made many advances, and with state-of-the-art technology, dental procedures are more comfortable and pain-free than they've ever been.
Finally, you should know that Dr. Lassiter is an extraordinarily experienced and highly-skilled dentist in Kingsland, GA, who's completed thousands of hours of post-graduate training to hone his techniques and expertise.

At Lassiter Family Dentistry, we also offer nitrous oxide for patients who need a little extra assistance feeling at ease while getting through their dental procedures.
Nitrous oxide is a combination of nitrous and oxygen that you breathe through a mask you'll wear during your dental procedure. It works quickly to help you feel at ease and relaxed. When we've completed your procedure, it leaves your body just as quickly so you can drive and return to your normal daily activities.
