Dr. Michael Leyferman and the staff at LIfe Family Dentistry want to help patients feel less anxious at their office, so they equip patients with personalized music selections, DVDs, and warm blankets to take their mind off the visit and make it as comfortable as possible. For those who still feel anxious, the dental experts can hum a lullaby or perform oral conscious sedation.
After patients settle in, Dr. Leyferman uses a pen-sized intraoral camera to better see every inch of his patients? mouths. The images from the camera are then broadcast on special chair-side monitors for patients to see. He also relies on digital x-rays to unearth hidden cavities, custom-made porcelain veneers to cover misshapen teeth, and Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments to brighten teeth up to eight shades.
