For Your Comfort

For Your Comfort Perio Chair

Your comfort during any procedure is extremely important to us! For this reason, we offer IV and/or oral sedation for those who feel that they need something in addition to tender loving care. Please be assured that Chapel Hill Periodontics & Implants will not do any treatment unless you are completely comfortable and numb.

We have iPods that you can listen to during your procedure. We also encourage you to bring any favorite CDs you may have at home. Please let us know about your fears or concerns so that we can discuss them, provide solutions, and put your mind at ease.
