Despite majority of dental procedures being virtually painless, many people avoid going to a Daytona Beach dentist. This often leads to patients neglecting their dental needs altogether. It is, however, understandable that people experience anxiety when receiving dental care as dental fear and phobia are extremely common. This is why Lakeside Daytona Dentist and Dr. Gladston Silva makes sure that each patient he treats has a pleasant dental experience.

According to Colgate’s Oral Care Center, it has been estimated that 9 to 15 percent of Americans avoid regular visits to the dentist because of varying degrees of anxiety or fear. That means about 30 to 40 million people are at higher risk of developing gum diseases and even early tooth loss because of neglect.

Some of our patients here at Lakeside Daytona Dentist admit that the cause of their own dental anxiety is having a traumatic experience when they were younger. Dr. Gladston Silva makes sure that the clinic is comfortable and the staff are friendly to put patients who come see us at ease. He also makes it a point to get to know his patients’ needs and explain the procedures they have to undergo to make them more relaxed. Our clinic in Daytona Beach also uses advanced dental techniques like IV sedation to reduce any pain or discomfort patients may experience during more invasive treatments like root canals or dental implants.

Dr. Gladston Silva is also skilled in handling particularly difficult cases. For instance, one patient was denied treatment by other dentists due to some complications with her gums, causing difficulties when eating and chewing food. Dr. Silva, however, determined that the patient was eligible for dental implant surgery after conducting an MRI scan of her jawbones.

Lakeside Daytona Dentist offers a range of dental services from cosmetic dentistry procedures like crowns and denture to dental restoration treatments like implants and veneers. Rest assured that we will take the pain-free approach with all of our services.

Our practice is known for our state-of-the-art technology, the latest innovative techniques and high quality materials. This allows us to ensure that our work produces long lasting and superior results. Dr. Gladston Silva and his talented staff can customize treatment to meet each patient’s dental care needs.
