Answering Wauconda Patients’ Questions
How long does treatment take?
With the amazing advancements that have been made in cosmetic dentistry, it’s never been easier, more convenient or more comfortable to have the smile of your dreams. New technology makes it possible for us to complete even the most comprehensive procedures in two to three visits, correcting any problem and restoring any smile.
What if I am nervous? What can you do for me?
We understand that many of our patients feel nervous about their dental treatments. Some have difficulty getting numb. Others simply wonder how they can stay comfortable for longer procedures. We want every moment you spend with us to be relaxed and soothing. That’s why we work so hard to make our atmosphere calming and our services extra gentle and precise. We also offer Nitrous Oxide for another level of relaxation.
Some know Nitrous Oxide as laughing gas because of the exhilarating effect, the slight tingling feeling and the altered sense of time. Whatever you call it, this sedating and pain relieving gas can help you drift away into a blissful state during treatment. Sedation takes only about 30 seconds after administration. After your treatment is completed, we will administer pure oxygen and you will wake up and feel clear and able to drive in no time.
How can I be sure my smile will look natural?
Just like you, your smile is unique. We take great care in designing a smile that complements you. We take a series of facial measurements to help us create a smile that is in proportion to your bone structure, age and gender. We want your smile to enhance your appearance and look completely natural.
How do I select the right dentist?
After graduating from dental school, any dentist can call him or herself a “cosmetic dentist.” In reality, all cosmetic training occurs after graduation.
Dr. Follmer’s training, experience and clinical skills are outstanding. He has studied with some of the nation’s most renowned practitioners and has taken extensive courses at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.
This is a practice created and sustained by these principles. That means we focus on your unique concerns, hopes and dreams to create the perfect smile for you.
