How painful are dental procedures? As your dentist in Gilbert, it’s part of my job to make your dental procedures as easy and painless as possible.
Visit Your Pain-Free Dentist in Gilbert
As we covered previously, many dentists will even prescribe you a mild sedative that you can take before you go to your appointment, provided of course that you have someone to drive you to and from the appointment. Once you sit down in the dentist chair one of the most popular ways to alleviate anxiety is to be treated with nitrous oxide, more commonly known as laughing gas. When you are having more significant work being done I.V. sedation is an option that you may be interested in. The point here is that dentists today will do whatever they can to make your visit to their office as stress and pain-free as possible.
As your dentist in Gilbert, I know that while teeth are important for their primary function of allowing you to eat, they are also very important to your appearance. Having discolored, chipped, or missing teeth will have a major impact on your appearance. The bad news is that you are probably in this position because you have ignored your dental problems for far too long. The good news is that cosmetic dentistry can restore your smile. There are a lot of different options you can explore so no matter what your financial situation is you should be able to find a treatment that works for you.
Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help To Restore Your Smile
The first option you may want to consider if you are missing most of your teeth is to have dentures made. Dentures are relatively inexpensive when compared with other options, and they can immediately restore your smile. If you don’t like the idea of dentures and have the money to afford them, dental implants are really the gold standard when it comes to replacing missing teeth. An implant is anchored to your jawbone while you are sedated. Later after the implant has had a chance to bond with the bone a permanent artificial tooth will be attached to it. If you still have most of your teeth another option to consider would be having crowns put on the damaged teeth, and bridges used to replace any teeth you are missing.
If You Ignore Your Dental Problems You Will End Up Regretting It
If you ask anyone with serious dental problems if they regret ignoring their tooth pain until it became a major problem, they are almost certainly all going to say yes. One of the things that people regret the most is the fact that if they would have had their dental problems taken care of when they first arose, it would have been a minor and inexpensive procedure.
Now by waiting they have made the problems more severe, which can result in the cost being prohibitive to the point where dentures are their only viable option. If you are experiencing dental problems then please don’t hesitate or ignore the problem. Instead schedule and appointment with a dentist and let them show you how gentle and pain-free modern dentistry can be.
And as your Gilbert dentist, I will close with this. Smile!
