Minimal Sedation Dentistry
We understand that visiting the dentist can be a nerve-wracking experience for many patients. To help make your experience as comfortable as possible, we offer minimal sedation dentistry for the following procedures:
- Placing dental implants
- Replacing dental crowns
- Fixing chipped or damaged teeth
- Restoring diseased gum tissue
All of the doctors at Loftus Dental have received advanced training in minimal sedation dentistry in order to provide you with safe and effective way to complete as much dentistry as possible while you relax comfortably.
Our experienced staff monitor all of our patients closely, making sure they are relaxed and completely comfortable during their procedure.
Dental implants have recently become the most common way to replace a missing tooth or secure a denture or partial. Whether you have a back or front tooth missing, or many teeth, dental implants may be the most natural way to restore those areas. Dental implants are a titanium post or screw that is placed in the area where the root of the tooth was previously. These titanium implants integrate with the jaw bone to become completely secure in a few short months. Once the implants are secure, a ceramic crown is attached to the implants.
Immediate dental implants have become more predictable in the past few years and are a very common way to place an implant at Loftus Dental. In many cases when a tooth is removed, an implant can be placed directly where tooth was removed on the same appointment. This procedure will save you time, reduce the number of appointments, reduce the amount of discomfort and reduce the overall cost of the implant procedure.

Same Day Procedures
Crowns and bridges: At Loftus Dental, we continue to find ways to make your dental appointment more relaxing and less time consuming. To make this possible, we have integrated CEREC CAD/CAM technology into our practice right after it became available 15 years ago. The technology has drastically improved in the last few years and we are now capable of providing our patients with dental crowns and bridges in one appointment with a material that is strong, comfortable, and has a very natural appearance.
Root canals: We understand that a toothache can happen at any time without warning, so we hold time each day for those people that find themselves in an emergency situation. Many times a toothache will require a root canal treatment; in most cases we can start and finish a root canal and get you back to what you were doing in one appointment.
Dental implants: There are some situations when a tooth breaks and can’t be saved. In these rare circumstances, the tooth can be removed and replaced immediately with a dental implant. If it’s a front tooth, a temporary crown may be able to be placed immediately as well which preserves the health of the gum tissue and saves the patients additional visits and reduces the cost. At Loftus Dental, we stock a large quantity of dental implant products so we are able to take care of you and your dental needs immediately.

Loftus Dental met all my expectations! The staff are really friendly, courteous, understanding, attentive, patient and treat you like family (that's what I got used to at my ex-hometown). I am very impressed with customer service. I would recommend Loftus Dental to all my family and friends.
Thank you Dr. Jeff, Gena and Emily for your caring and professional treatment. After two procedures in two days I even received a phone call from Dr. Jeff to check on me! After 32 years I have finally found a dentist and staff I am comfortable with and trust. Highly recommended!
