We understand that millions of people suffer from dental anxiety, and while oral care is crucial, we have to start by addressing your fears so you feel comfortable making and keeping appointments.

Nitrous oxide is a gentle form of sedation that will relax you but not put you to sleep. It is a gas that is mixed with oxygen and has been safely used in dentistry since the mid-1800s. In fact, nitrous is so safe that we can use to help children relax and get the care they need.

Nitrous is inhaled through a comfortable mask that sits on your nose, so you just need to sit back and breathe normally. In a few moments, you will feel very calm, relaxed, and mildly euphoric. You will be fully conscious, but the activity around you will recede into the background.

We administer nitrous only as long as your procedure lasts, and when we remove the mask, the effects dissipate quickly. Unlike other forms of sedation, you will be able to drive yourself to and from your appointment and immediately return to your usual routine.

Because of our team’s gentle and caring approach, most of our patients don’t require sedation. But everyone has different needs, so it’s good to know that this option is available. If you have questions about nitrous oxide at our Audubon dental office, please call us so we can find the answer you need.

At Train Station Dental, we respect that your time is valuable, so you will rarely have to wait more than a couple of minutes to be seen. Emergencies can occur, but our team works seamlessly together to prepare for your visit so that when it's time for your appointment, we are typically ready to see you immediately. 

Cosmetic Dentistry

Train Station Dental never wants treatment price to deter a patient from achieving a perfect smile. We offer a variety of payment options that will allow you to achieve your desired goal without busting your budget. Call Train Station Dental for a complimentary consultation and you will see that your dream of a perfect smile is within reach. 

  • Studies conclude that the first trait a person notices when meeting another person is his or her smile.  So one can see how important a nice smile is while interviewing for jobs, or educational opportunities, and in order to gain confidence in social settings.  Therefore, in addition to Invisalign, Train Station Dental offers a variety of cosmetic treatments.  Porcelain veneers are not just for Hollywood actors and actresses.  Dr. Savon and his highly trained staff can transform your smile and give you that perfectly straight, bright smile you always dreamed about.  Composite bonding can also improve the shape and shade of teeth in just one appointment.  Dr. Savon utilizes 3-D technology to place and restores dental implants so all phases of dental implants are completed under one roof.  If you want to brighten your smile, Zoom in-office whitening and Opalescence at-home whitening will create beautiful, long-lasting results.  

Dental Implants

At Train Station Dental, Dr. John Savon is trained to handle the entire implant process from placement to restoration. Having the same doctor perform both parts of the procedure ensures continuity of care from a professional you know and trust.

Dental implants are considered the gold standard because they are a complete tooth replacement. State-of-the-art Sirona cone beam technology provides Dr. Savon with a 3-D image of your jaw that allows precise placement for a successful procedure and the best long-term outcomes.

As the implant heals in your jaw, it integrates with surrounding bone and tissue and ultimately becomes a permanent part of your dental structure. When healing is complete, we will add a crown, bridge, or denture that restores your smile and your ability to speak and eat comfortably.

If you have been dealing with the discomfort and inconvenience of missing teeth, dental implants may be the right decision for you. The only way to know if you’re a candidate is to arrange an appointment for an implant evaluation with Dr. Savon at our Audubon dental office.

When he meets with you, Dr. Savon will also talk to you about our other tooth replacement options and help you decide which is the best based on your unique needs.

General Dentistry

Our team loves getting to know children aged three and over and working with them to help them develop healthy oral habits.

By the age of three, most children will have all 20 of their baby teeth. Monitoring their oral health from this point forward is crucial because these teeth play a significant role in your child’s dental development.

Yes, your child will lose their baby teeth eventually, but until then they serve several purposes. Baby teeth hold a space open for permanent teeth that will eventually emerge, and they also help your child learn how to speak and eat properly.

Without proper care and attention, baby teeth can become decayed, and if the decay isn’t treated, the tooth will be lost. This loss can lead to crowding as neighboring teeth move in to fill the void and can also create speech problems. Not to mention the fact that you don’t want your child ever to have to suffer from a painful tooth.

At Train Station Dental, our team works with little kids to help them feel positive about their oral health by treating them as individuals with unique personalities. During their early visits, we’ll help them get accustomed to new surroundings, and as they grow, we will be there to guide them and you in making healthy decisions that support good oral health.

If it’s time for your child’s next visit, please call our Audubon dental office to arrange a convenient appointment.

Train Station Dental recommends that examinations and cleanings should be performed every 6 months. However, some of our patients have gum issues that necessitate more frequent maintenance. The best way to ensure the health of your teeth and gums, as well as your overall health, is to visit the dentist at least 2 times every year. 

Invisalign Clear Braces and Traditional Orthodontics

Invisalign, or invisible braces, is the treatment of choice for adults and teenagers wishing to obtain that perfect smile without metal braces. 

Train Station Dental never wants treatment price to deter a patient from achieving a perfect smile. We offer a variety of payment options that will allow you to achieve your desired goal without busting your budget. Call Train Station Dental for a complimentary consultation and you will see that your dream of a perfect smile is within reach. 

Invisalign can correct a variety of dental problems. Invisalign is effective in treating crowded teeth, teeth with spaces between them, overbites, underbites, and narrow arches. The best way to determine if Invisalign is right for you is to call our office and schedule a complimentary consultation. 

Root Canal Therapy

The team at Train Station Dental is pleased to offer our patients the benefits of comfortable, state-of-the-art root canals at our Audubon dental office.

We understand the apprehension that people feel when faced with root canal therapy. But our doctors use compassionate care and state-of-the-art technology to provide you with the most efficient, stress-free treatment possible.

Sirona 3-D cone beam imaging allows us to find the precise area of infection and map out your treatment beforehand. Apex locators are a technology that helps your doctor find the tip (apex) of the root canal to ensure that all infected material is thoroughly removed.

Of course, technology is all well and good, but what about your dental anxiety? In spite of what we tell you, you may still be nervous about treatment, and that’s okay! We offer gentle care and support because we understand your feelings and want you to be comfortable.

In addition to a team who cares about your needs, we also offer gentle inhalation sedation with nitrous oxide. You will be conscious during your procedure but will feel very relaxed and detached from the activity around you.

If you think you need a root canal, please don’t put off calling us because of anxiety. An untreated root canal infection can spread, and ultimately, the tooth will need to be removed. Please call Train Station Dental so we can help you get the critical care you need.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea is a debilitating condition that can lead to fatigue and a host of other physical problems if left untreated. Even if you are being treated with CPAP therapy, you may still struggle. Many find it awkward or uncomfortable to use and simply avoid wearing it at all.

CPAP currently is the safest and most effective solution for those with severe sleep apnea. But millions of people have mild to moderate sleep apnea, and we can often help these patients find relief with a customized oral device worn during sleep.

Sleep apnea occurs because your airway is blocked by your tongue and softened throat tissue during sleep. The blockage results in excessive snoring and episodes of gasping for breath as your body is deprived of oxygen and wakes you up to breathe. For some, these episodes can occur hundreds of times each night.

But a simple oral device that is customized to move your jaw slightly forward during sleep may be all that’s needed to keep your airway open so you can breathe freely. We determine if you’re a candidate by arranging a home sleep study test that monitors your breathing patterns and vital signs to determine the extent of your sleep apnea.

If you or a loved one are dealing with the effects of sleep apnea, please call our Audubon dental office to arrange a consultation.
