Support for Anxious Patients: Sleep While We Treat

People frequently experience anxiety or worry before going to the dentist, which can keep them from receiving the necessary dental care. If this sounds like you, don't panic.

Dental sedation is offered to those who feel a high level of anxiety during dental appointments. At our practice, we offer IV sedation that allows you to be completely unconscious or semi-conscious according to your comfort level.

Understanding Gingivitis

Gingivitis is a gum disease characterized by a slow development without noticeable pain. However, it can quickly aggravate and transform into periodontitis, a chronic infection that may lead to tooth loosening or loss.

Causes of Gingivitis

Gingivitis can be caused by various factors, including misaligned teeth, a poorly fitting crown, bad oral hygiene, tobacco use, stress, and vitamin C deficiency. Symptoms often include gum inflammation, bleeding (especially after brushing), and bad breath.

Intervention Process to Treat Gingivitis

The treatment of gingivitis begins with a consultation with the dentist for a thorough examination. Subsequently, a dental hygienist provides periodontal scaling, which may be recommended based on the dentist's assessment. Patients are educated on daily actions to maintain good oral health and reduce the risk of recurrence.

Meeting With the Dentist

During your appointment, both the patient and the dentist collaboratively evaluate the dental condition to determine the most suitable treatment. The treatment plan is adapted to the patient's needs and oral health.

Before any discussion, the dentist conducts a comprehensive review of the patient's oral health, assessing the severity and speed of gingivitis development. The dentist then proposes potential treatments, allowing the patient to choose the most convenient option. The dentist proceeds with the intervention or schedules another appointment for gingivitis treatment.
