Enjoy A Relaxing Dental Experience With Sedation Dentistry

Do you experience dental nerves and anxiety, and is it keeping you from visiting our office for routine examinations or a needed treatment? Experiencing dental nerves and anxiety is more common than you may realize. Millions of Americans have some form of dental anxiety, which keeps them from receiving the care and treatment needed for optimum oral health. Unfortunately, when you continue to avoid routine examinations and treatments, it can lead to a never-ending cycle of dental problems, emergencies and lengthy treatments, which will only make the nervous feelings worse. Thankfully, we offer a solution to help patients get the dental care they need while being in a relaxed state — dental sedation.

Even if you aren’t in need of treatment at this time, it is important to know that delaying a necessary treatment can seriously impact the state of your oral health. You may experience a dental emergency, and the treatment plan may change if the damage progresses. We would hate for your spring and summer plans to be impacted by oral health issues.

Reasons To Replace Missing Teeth

We have heard all the common concerns about replacing the missing tooth, from it not being visible to the fact that it is too expensive or that the process will be too time consuming. We are here to tell you that every tooth, no matter the location, should be replaced.

We want to be sure a tooth replacement option is chosen that will be beneficial and improve your quality of life.

Do Implants Hurt?

Are you in need of a tooth replacement and interested in learning more about dental implants as your final choice? Dental implants are a popular tooth replacement option due to the many benefits they provide. Not only do they restore the function of the teeth, but they also blend in seamlessly with the surrounding natural teeth. When patients learn more about dental implants, one of their main concerns is whether they will hurt. Dental implants are a more in-depth procedure than some other tooth replacement options, leading patients to wonder about the level of discomfort. Dr. Stryker recently took the opportunity to make a video explaining more about the process of dental implants and whether the treatment hurts or not.
