Causes of Bad Breath

by Shearly (SU)
Many people have bad breath at some point, whether they notice it or not. The American Dental Association states that 50 percent of all adults reported having bad breath at one time or another. We interact with many people during our business and social activities, so having bad breath, or just worrying about bad breath can affect your quality of life. It’s also a sign of possible health concerns, so bad breath shouldn’t be ignored.

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.
