How is a dentist office like a spa?
The family dentist in Bloomingdale incorporated elements from spas to make the office more attractive and relaxing for patients. They can thus enjoy amenities like flat-screen televisions, aromatherapy candles, and free beverages. They can also use headphones that play music or block out noise and receive paraffin hand treatments.
What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry also helps patients relax while undergoing treatment. There are three types: inhalation-conscious sedation, oral-conscious sedation, and intravenous sedation. The last is used for patients undergoing long and complicated procedures like root canal or wisdom tooth removal. The sedative is administered directly into the patient’s bloodstream and takes effect within minutes. A specialist will monitor the patient while they are under anesthesia.
In oral-conscious sedation, the patient remains awake, but they will be relaxed and calm. The dentist will give them a medication that they will take by mouth.
In inhalation-conscious sedation, the patient will wear a nose-hood and breathe in nitrous oxide or “laughing gas.” The effects of the gas wear off within five minutes after the procedure.
What types of braces are offered?
The orthodontist can offer the traditional metal braces, which are smaller and less obtrusive than the “railroad tracks” of yore.
Lingual braces are metal braces attached to the backs of the teeth and are thus completely hidden from view.
Clear braces are actually made from plastic or porcelain that is the same color as the patient’s teeth. Their most visible part is the archwire.
Invisalign is the newest kind of appliance available. They consist of plastic trays worn over the teeth. Unlike other types of braces, Invisalign trays are removable, so the patient will have an easier time cleaning their teeth.
