The Different Stages of Gum Disease

by Natalie (SU)
You’ve heard all your life that you should brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day. Your grandparents even joked that if you didn’t brush your teeth, you’d end up like them with no teeth, and removeable dentures.

Why Sedation Dentistry?

Why Sedation Dentistry?

by Natalie (SU)
Odontophobia (also called dental phobia) is the fear of dentistry and of receiving dental care. Not uncommon, it affects as many as 75% of American adults to some degree. If you suffer from dental phobia, you are not alone, and sedation dentistry may be right for you. Why sedation dentistry? Sedation dentistry allows you to relax in a gentle twilight state while the dentist provides professional and swift treatment. You are not completely unconscious, and can still respond to questions. You’re aware of what is happening, but so relaxed that you are unconcerned and completely at ease. Simply put, if you have avoided the dentist in the past because of dental phobia, you no longer need to suffer. By using nitrous oxide, sedation dentistry makes your trips to the dentist less stressful.

While most people may not be aware, more and more dentists are recommending 3D X-ray imaging for better diagnostics. A lot has changed since X-Rays were first used in 1895 to create visual images of otherwise solid structures such as bones and teeth.
