Dental Sedation Can Make Oral Care More Comfortable

For anxious patients, the idea of dental care can have the potential to cause discomfort. If you suffer from this problem, you may put off necessary trips to the dentist to have a problem examined, or you might find yourself avoiding routine dental appointments. This has the unfortunate effect of putting you in a situation where you can be more likely to develop a problem that calls for involved treatment, like a root canal procedure. Your Reno, NV dentist’s office can offer dental sedation during your appointment if you struggle with anxiety. By relying on this support, you can have an easier time in the dentist’s chair, and feel more comfortable setting up a future appointment. (more…)

Using Implants And Mini-Implants To Help Restore Smiles

Your Reno, NV dentist’s office can provide restorative dental care to address a wide range of oral health issues.

Implants help to stabilize restorations – they can help with holding a single replacement tooth in position, and they can be used to keep dentures in place. Mini-implants are also available, and they can help to hold dentures, or to provide support for someone whose jawbone has suffered deterioration. (more…)

Avoiding Dental Health Troubles Through Smart Daily Care

Your Reno, NV dentist’s office can help your smile by providing restorative and preventive dental care that keeps you in good health.

Consistently brushing and flossing will help, but you should think about oral care as more than just a matter of cleaning your teeth. Your diet choices, and your habits, can also have an impact on your dental health.  (more…)
