Fear can overrule the need for dental work. Avoiding the dentist can make dental issues worse. There are some patients who show up for their appointment so worked up with fear and anxiety that they tense up and make it difficult to be treated. IV Sedation is a solution that does work. Sedation dentistry (sleep dentistry) can provide anxious patients with comfort and relaxation so they can be treated without pain and anxiety.

Either way, if you’re accustomed to daily brushing and flossing, you won’t need to change your routine. One of the many great benefits of dental implants is that their care and maintenance is very similar to that of natural teeth.

Missing teeth can leave you feeling so embarrassed that you cover your mouth or look away from others when you speak. It can cause anxiety and cause you to isolate yourself from others. If you’re missing a tooth due to injury or decay, it’s important to address it as soon as possible. Even if you’re not concerned about cosmetics, having a full set of teeth is essential to maintaining good oral health. Missing teeth can result in bone loss in your jaw or cause your remaining teeth to shift to fill in the gaps, leaving you with further complications from a misaligned bite.

It is known as an impacted wisdom tooth if it has not fully erupted into the oral cavity. Most people will have four wisdom teeth. They are generally the last teeth to break through the gums. A tooth may become impacted due to an abnormal position of the wisdom tooth, insufficient space in the dental cavity, an abnormal growth, like a cyst and other factors.
