Do You Have Dental Anxiety?
Patients who are anxious about receiving treatment at a dental office can benefit from sedation dentistry. This method also benefits patients who have multiple treatments, have a low tolerance for pain, or have a poor gag reflex. We offer IV conscious sedation and general anesthesia to patients at Orchard Hill Dental.
IV conscious sedation is administered directly into the bloodstream. Patients can remain conscious during treatment but most likely will not remember the procedure. Anesthesia is designed to allow patients to sleep during their treatment. Patients won’t remember anything that happens when they are unconscious under general anesthesia. If you choose this form of sedation you will need a driver to take you to and from your appointment.
The dental cleaning services we offer in our dentist office thoroughly cleans the teeth and gums. Routine dental cleanings can help combat gum disease and tooth decay, as well as halitosis and gum swelling. There are multiple benefits that teeth cleanings offer patients. These benefits include:
Plaque removal: Plaque buildup above and below the gum line can cause tooth and gum infection. Our dentists use specialized dental equipment that can be used to get to areas where plaque may build up.
Improved tooth aesthetics: Cleaning the teeth and gums can help rid teeth of stains and teeth can become whiter and brighter with regular cleaning.
Fresher breath: Halitosis, also known as bad breath, is caused by a combination of rotting food particles and gum infection. Cleaning teeth regularly can help fight infection, leaving your breath fresher and your teeth healthier.
