Greetings Marrero! Welcome back to the going dental health blog of Lapalco Family Dental. Generally, we use this blog to tell our patients about our exciting options for orthodontics, dental implants, restorative dentistry, or cosmetic dentistry. But today we want to address a different audience: people in Marrero, LA looking for a dentist.
Whether you’re new to Marrero, LA, or it’s been awhile since you visited the dentist, we can provide you with comfortable care at Lapalco Family Dental. Patients travel to our office from all over the state to take advantage of the wonderful treatments we offer!

Our existing patients live the wide variety of treatments we offer. You could travel all around the state looking for cosmetic dental care, orthodontic care, and routine preventative care. Or you could simply come to Lapalco Family Dental in Marrero, LA for the dental needs of your entire family!
If you have decayed or damaged teeth, we can painlessly restore them with tooth-colored fillings and same-day CEREC crowns.

At Lapalco Family Dental, our patients are always our top priority. Unlike impersonal corporate dental offices, we remember the names and faces of our patients. We’ll always greet you with a warm smile and do everything we can to make your visit pleasant. We have a range of comfort amenities to help you relax before and during your treatment. We strive to make our office an anxiety-free zone.
Because we want all our patients to be comfortable, we also offer sedation dentistry procedures. Sedation dentistry is designed to help people with dental phobias or fears relax during their treatment. We offer both oral sedation and nitrous oxide sedation. You never again have to fear visiting the dentist when you visit Lapalco Family Dental!
Nitrous oxide sedation is one of our most popular comfort options. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a gentle but effective sedation technique. The World Health Organization has even cited nitrous oxide as one of the most effective tools in medicine!
To deliver laughing gas, we simply place a small mask over your nose during your treatment. You breathe in a clean and safe mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. You may feel a bit giggly, hence the name. But you’ll be entirely relaxed throughout your treatment; when we’re finished we turn the laughing gas off and the effects wear off almost immediately. It’s safe to drive yourself home after undergoing nitrous oxide sedation.
We also offer oral sedation. For patients with a higher level of anxiety, we can prescribe a mild sedative medication for you to take before your procedure. This sedative is in pill form, so you just take it before your procedure then sit back and relax! We’ll have your smile looking great in no time!
In addition to sedation dentistry, we’re proud to offer the latest in dental technology at Lapalco Family Dental in Marrero, LA. Dentistry has come a long-way in recent decades, and dental technology allows us to offer a faster and more comfortable treatment experience for our patients. We use digital x-rays, as they allow for instant imaging with low radiation levels than traditional x-rays. We also use a cone beam CT scanner to take 3D images of your teeth and precisely plan your treatment.
