How can we help you?FAQ Copy
Most forms of dental sedation will leave you drowsy but conscious and able to voluntarily move and speak. Dental sedation will put you into a deeply relaxed state. You may find that time passes faster, and you may not even remember parts of the procedure when it is over, but you will remain conscious the entire time.
Cleanings & Examinations
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Dental implants are intended to blend in among your natural teeth.
One of the advantages of this is that you can brush and floss them the same as you would with your regular teeth. While implants never get cavities (and never need root canals!), you still want to continue brushing and flossing to keep your natural teeth and your gums healthy.
Periodontal Disease Prevention & Treatment
Coming in for regular cleanings will help keep your gums in great shape, but what you do at home matters as well. Brush twice daily and floss every evening. Our team will be happy to show you proper brushing and flossing techniques.
Other steps you can take to prevent gum disease include:
Don't smoke or chew tobacco.
Eat a healthy diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Use an antiseptic mouthwash. We'll be happy to recommend one.
If you have a health condition that can affect your dental health such as diabetes, heart disease, or cancer, please let us know so that we can take extra steps to help keep your gums healthy.
