• Frequently Asked Questions

    I am afraid of the dentist! What do you suggest?

    For patients that have a moderate degree of anxiety we use laughing gas or nitrous oxide. This relaxes you while you are in the dental chair and goes away quickly so that you can drive home. For patients with more severe anxiety we also offer oral sedation. This is a series of pills you take before and during your dental appointment. Patients who've used oral sedation often say they don't even remember their dental appointment.

    Will you provide dental care for my entire family?

    We get a kick out of treating several generations of the same family, and we offer a range of services to make this possible. From children’s dentistry to restorative dentistry, we provide dental care that’s appropriate for individuals from age three to age 93. For families in Broken Arrow, Jenks, and Bixby, BA-dentist offers affordable dental care solutions for most oral health problems.
