Avoiding the dentist at all costs will have far-reaching consequences. Ignoring a painful tooth or swollen gums will eventually lead to more invasive dental procedures such as root scaling and planing and root canal therapy. Thankfully sedation dentistry takes care of all that. Sedation Dentistry Helps Ease Anxiety According to Dr. Mike Morris from Chittenden Dental, sedation dentistry helps patients with dental fear, giving them a reason to smile again. Skipping dental appointments only makes things worse, especially if you are dealing with a toothache or bleeding gums. When you take a pill the day of or the night before your dental appointment, you will arrive relaxed, and ready for your procedure. Just remember that you will need someone to take you to and from your dental appointment in Burlington if you are having sedation dentistry. Laughing gas, or Nitrous Oxide, is a sedation technique

If you have missing teeth, you know how annoying it can be. People with missing teeth find it tough to enjoy their favorite foods. Even one lost tooth can affect the way you talk and eat.

If you are changing your bite because you have lost a tooth or teeth, your TMJ can also be affected. Dental bridges and dental implants both provide support for missing teeth.

These days you can have teeth in a day, but unfortunately, if you are one of those people who has been missing teeth for years, it may not be the best fit
