Most Common Cosmetic Dental Procedures
Many people avoid going to the dentist because they are anxious or afraid. This can lead to bigger health issues later on. Proper and regular dental care is vital to overall health.
Dentists perform basic procedures many times daily and know how to keep you comfortable throughout the process. There is no need for anyone, child or adult, to be apprehensive about these common dental procedures:
- Tooth Pulling or Extractions – Some potential patients in need of a tooth extraction imagine it as it happened in old Westerns with the patient writhing in pain while the dentist yanks out their tooth in a violent manner. Nothing could be further from the truth! Modern pain-prevention medications and tools make a tooth extraction quick and painless.
- Dental Implants – After tooth extraction, the surrounding teeth will float a bit in the space causing not only an altered appearance of the jawline but could also cause bigger issues. The solution to this is a dental implant to take the place of your missing tooth. Implants, like extractions, are painless with the help of pain medications and modern equipment.
- Dental Crowns – Badly damaged or cracked teeth are vulnerable to tooth decay, which over time can lead to more serious health issues. Placing a crown on the tooth solves any potential issues with decay or infection. Although the procedure may take two visits to your dental professional, both are quick and easy.
- Cavity Fillings – If you are avoiding the dentist because you have a cavity it is important not to wait too long. Tooth decay can easily become root decay, leading to the need for a root canal or extraction. With a quick injection of pain medication in the surrounding gum tissue, your cavity can be dealt with quickly and painlessly.
