Gentle Professional Cleaning
Traditional brushing, flossing, and scrubbing cannot eliminate all bacteria. Most dentists recommend a teeth cleaning every six months. However, if the condition of your teeth demands extra care and attention, then our dentist will suggest increasing the number of visits required to solve your issues. Therefore, getting your teeth professionally cleaned at a dental office will get rid of all the problem-causing factors that may turn into harder-to-solve oral health conditions.
Regular dentist visits do more than keep your smile attractive. They also tell our dentist a great deal about your overall health, including whether or not you may be at risk for chronic disease.Read more about Gentle Professional Cleaning
Read more about IV Sedation
Many people put off visiting the dentist due to apprehension and fear, neglecting important dental work in the process. Unlike deep sedation or general anesthesia, with IV Sedation, you'll remain conscious during your procedure and still be able to cooperate with instructions. Prior to your treatment, you'll receive medication through an intravenous line. This will place you in a calm, relaxed state while you retain all verbal and physical response capabilities throughout your treatment.
Nitrous Oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option your dentist may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes, you should start to feel the effects of the Nitrous Oxide. You won't fall asleep; instead, the Nitrous Oxide simply puts you at ease and eliminates any anxiety you may normally experience.Read more about Nitrous Oxide
