Don’t Let a Smile Makeover Spook You
October 26, 2018
Whether you had a bad experience at the dentist or have always had inexplicable dental anxiety, you’re not alone – plenty of people feel the same way you do. It is possible to conquer your fear, or at least manage it long enough to get the oral health care you deserve. Healthy teeth are critical to overall body wellness. If your smile isn’t in good condition, the rest of you could suffer too, including emotionally and mentally. Time to understand how your smile makeover is possible.
One of the best things to happen to modern dentistry is sedation. Through oral conscious sedation, patients who are otherwise too anxious or scared to get dental work done can calmly spend time undergoing the restoration and beautification of their teeth.
Laughing gas is always an option, and this can help many people find comfort as they sit through their procedures. Not every dentist, however, is qualified to offer advanced oral sedation. Working with a Johns Creek dentist who is specially trained and experienced in administering sedation means you can get through every dental appointment, whether you are fearful, have a strong gag reflex, or are undergoing multiple procedures at one time.
When you’re relaxed, it makes your dentist’s job easier and the work can be done more efficiently. And that means you’re in and out of the dentist’s chair faster than you thought possible.
If you have been living in a state of embarrassment because of the condition of your teeth, it’s possible to spruce up your smile with non-invasive procedures and do it quickly.
ZOOM! teeth whitening is done in-office and can be completed in about an hour. The procedure is painless and fast, and all precautions are taken to ensure that your gums are protected from developing sensitivity to the whitening bleach. The result is a whiter, gorgeous smile that you will be proud to show off.
When your dentist recommends inlays and onlays to repair chips, old fillings, decay, cracks, or teeth that are unstable, the work can be done in one visit, thanks to the CEREC restoration system. The in-office CEREC system creates your customized inlays and onlays in the office while you wait – this eliminates the need for more appointments or temporary teeth.
Often, when you have a dental emergency, the last thing you’re thinking about is having to sit in the dentist’s chair, but rather, “How do I get this fixed right now?” You’ve been through the worst of the experience – suffering it. All that’s ahead of you is dealing with the situation and repairing it.
Maybe you were in a car accident, had a fall, collided in a sports game, or were in a fight – any of these circumstances can lead to a dental emergency. Your smile makeover could include restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry to get your mouth and teeth functional and beautiful. An experienced emergency dentist understands your anxiety and honors your worries by providing gentle, careful treatment.
