Additional Services, Including Sedation Dentistry
Includes hygiene visits for patients with periodontal disease and sleep and sedation dentistry.
Hygiene Visit With Periodontal Disease
For patients with periodontal disease, hygiene visits with Desert Breeze Dental can provide a variety of treatment and maintenance options. The three steps in treating periodontal disease involves diagnosis, determining a plan, then scaling and root planning in conjunction with laser therapy. Then the dentist will recommend a 3 or 4 month re-care program for you to maintain oral health. There are also various rinses and/or toothpastes your dental professional will prescribe or recommend. Home care is very important and goes hand-in-hand with following the recommended hygiene visits in the office.
Sedation dentistry is one of the most useful tools that we offer for patients who experience dental phobia, anxiety, a strong gag reflex, extremely sensitive teeth or difficulty with Novocain. Patients opting for sleep dentistry receive medication that puts them in a very relaxed, stress-free state. Patients often have little or no recollection of their appointment. It is important that patients using this option arrange reliable transportation to and from their appointments.
The simplest form of sedation is nitrous oxide, which is delivered through a facemask and takes effect in about 20 seconds. Patients feel very relaxed and often drift into a state of light sleep. As soon as the procedure is over, oxygen is administered and the effects diminish. There are no after effects and no recovery time is needed.
