Do you feel nervous or stressed about your upcoming dental treatment? You are not alone. In fact, almost 30 percent of the population experiences “dental phobia” during a visit to the dentist. Thanks to advances in technology, we offer a way for our patients to receive treatment that is safe and comfortable; it’s called sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry uses safe, effective sedatives to relax patients before dental procedures. Please ask Dr. Gifford if you are a good candidate for sedative dentistry.
You need braces and you don’t want to have a mouth full of metal brackets and wires, but what other choice is there? Why not ask about Invisalign? Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable, comfortable aligners that not only straighten teeth, but also give you a new smile in less time than with traditional braces. You don’t have to change your lifestyle to get a great smile. Dr. Gifford can refer you to well-respected, local orthodontists that can provide you with this treatment option.
