Do You Have Dental Anxiety?


If you fear dental visits you are not alone. There are many people who postpone or avoid going to the dentist because they are just too afraid. Don’t let this happen to you. Avoiding dental care (especially avoiding mouth or tooth pain) will only make matters worse. Fortunately many dentists have begun to provide oral conscious sedation dentistry which can greatly alleviate dental fear or anxiety.

So what is sedation dentistry and when would one use it?

There are many types of sedation dentistry and they offer different benefits to patients. Your dentist will work with you to figure out what approach will best fit your situation.  If you have dental fear and or anxiety you could be a good candidate for oral conscious sedation. Other qualifications can include:

  • sensitive gag reflex
  • sore jaw muscles
  • high pain sensitivity
  • difficulty numbing with local anesthetic
  • back or neck pain
  • difficulty controlling movement
  • previous traumatic dental experiences
  • discomfort sitting for long periods of time

If oral conscious sedation sounds like something you might be interested in, find a Crown Council Sedation Dentist near you. Don’t let your dental anxiety prevent you from the quality of life you deserve!


Cosmetic Dentistry Is Right For You


Cosmetic Dentistry Is Right For YouSometimes people are hesitant for change, even when it is a change for the better. The apprehension of change may involve the notion that you are getting by just fine right now and that avoiding change will ensure that things don’t get worse. Do you have something about your smile that bothers you but are afraid for a change? Perhaps you are embarrassed to bring it up with your dentist. By choosing the correct cosmetic dentist you have no need for anxiety in any shape or form. Your local cosmetic dentist will improve your smile and has abundant experience and training to get your smile to the level of beauty that you’re striving for. There are so many procedures that are available to improve you smile.  Here is a list of some of these procedures you may consider:

  • Porcelain Veneers: If you have chipped or deeply stained teeth that are otherwise healthy, veneers are the perfect treatment for you.  They are much more conservative than a full crown but leave you with a dazzling smile that you will be proud to show.
  • Teeth Whitening: This is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to drastically change your smile. Be sure to talk with your dentist about the different whitening options they offer. Some whitening treatments can be done in one office visit.
  • White Fillings: Do you have multiple silver fillings that bother you or make you feel self conscious about your smile? If you do, there are new materials that are tooth colored.  It is a quick and easy way to make your smile look 20 or 30 years younger.

Our smiles are very personal and they are one of the first things we see in the morning when we take time to brush them. If your smile is bothering you and has for some time, it’s time for a change that will leave you more confident about your teeth.

Stained Teeth: What we drink and eat can cause our teeth to stain. These stains are often able to be cleaned or bleached; however, there are some stains that are more severe than others and will need the help of a cosmetic dental professional in order to properly remove and finish with the correct results. Stains due to fluorosis or tetracycline will often need professional teeth whitening as well as porcelain veneers in order get the results you are looking for.

Crooked and Small Teeth: Your esthetic dentist can help re-design your smile. If you have lived with crooked, crowded, or small teeth and you don’t like your smile, you may be a candidate for a smile makeover that won’t require braces. Using porcelain veneers and gum contouring, your dentist can create the smile you’ve always wanted with out the hassle of those metal brackets. Be sure to talk to your doctor about your smile and what is possible.

These are just some of the possibilities of cosmetic dentistry. Be sure to choose a dentist with experience for the best results. Just think, you could be only a few months from having the smile you will feel confident about.
