Many people experience intense fear and anxiety when thinking about visiting the dentist. Sedation dentistry can help alleviate these fears and enable those who normally avoid the dentist to get the dental care they so desperately need.
Experienced and compassionate sedation dentists understand your concerns and can make your trip to the dentist office completely relaxing and fear-free with the use of sedation dentistry options like IV sedation and conscious sedation.
Dental sedation can be used for anything from teeth cleanings to multiple procedures, such as dental veneers, root canals, or extensive cosmetic work. Sedation dentistry can also save you money and time as it can help you avoid having to make multiple visits to the dentist. You will be able to have everything completed in one visit–on one bill.
Invisalign® is a specially crafted aligner that is used for six to eighteen months, or longer depending upon the seriousness of misalignment. Like a mouth or dental retainer (which is intended to shield teeth from moving back to original position), an Invisalign® aligner is utilized for orthodontic treatment as a procedure to move and appropriately adjust teeth for a nice smile. This reasonable aligner is typically produced from a form (or impression) of the patient’s teeth—taken by either a dental specialist or an orthodontist—and the fitting is unique to every patient.
- They are transparent and are difficult to detect when on the teeth.
- The rate at which teeth can be moved is faster in some cases because the Invisalign Braces are constantly being updated and manipulated to accommodate for the changing shape of the mouth.
- Invisalign Braces are made from a molded plastic product, there is no scraping or cutting of the lining of the mouth, the way traditional metal braces can cut and scrape inside the mouth.
- Patients can remove the Invisalign Braces when they are eating or drinking, so there is no risk of getting food caught in their teeth, like which traditional braces.
- The pain of having braces “tightened” is not present with Invisalign because the moldable trays move the teeth slightly with constant pressure over time.
- Clients complain of fewer headaches and mouth pain with Invisalign. 3D technology allows orthodontists to see progress and plan for progress using computer programs and data collected from images of the client’s mouth.
