The best method of dental treatment is to catch any potential danger before it becomes a problem. Our team of dental specialists in Kokomo strongly promote preventive dentistry, which emphasizes the importance of ongoing hygiene procedures and daily practices to prevent tooth decay and other dental diseases. Effective preventive dentistry combines at-home oral care by patients with chairside treatments and counseling by dental professionals.For example, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends a minimum of two dental checkups each year for professional cleaning and management of any developing conditions. Adhering to this recommendation can help your dentist stop dental disease in its earliest stages, protecting your smile and limiting your expense.
Getting regular dental visits and exams will help prevent most dental issues. Routine X-rays and cleanings keep your dentist informed about the state of your oral health. This allows them to provide you with vital, personalized advice to improve your hygiene and keep your teeth healthy. Don't wait, give our general dentist in Kokomo a call at (765) 455-0085 and schedule an appointment with our high level providers today!
One of the major benefits of sedation dentistry is the illusion of time it provides. You may feel like your procedure only lasted a few minutes when it may have taken over an hour to perform. In addition, sedation dentistry addresses many fears that may keep you from visiting the dentist on a regular basis. Patients who choose sedation dentistry are more likely to receive the recommended care and increase their oral health. Dental patients with generalized anxiety, belonephobia (fear of needles and sharp instruments), prior dental trauma, or generalized fear of the dentist can take oral medication in order to reduce their anxieties. A variety of single and incremental dose protocols are used to medicate the patient as early as the day before treatment. Medication additionally helps reduce memory or the sights and smells of the dental office to avoid recall of any trauma. The sedative effect allows more dentistry to be completed in fewer appointments, as well as allowing complex procedures to be performed in less time.
