Relaxing Dental Visits | Snohomish, WA

Young woman sleepingDoes the thought of having your teeth worked on make you anxious or uncomfortable? Do the sight of needles and the sound of dental drills make you cringe? Now imagine if you could have everything done while you nap comfortably and awake to not remembering anything from the procedure. By the use of oral conscious sedation, we can do this for you. Dr. Ted Haines of (Your City, Your State) has been helping people overcome these fears for many years.

Dr. Ted Haines will prescribe the appropriate medication in a pill form that you will take in his office before your treatment. Most oral sedation dentistry patients nap through their visit and leave feeling relaxed, healthy, and well cared for. This can benefit a wide range of patients, including people with:

  • High dental anxiety and fear.
  • A severe gag reflex.
  • Difficulty getting numb.
  • Extensive treatment needs.
  • A desire to have dentistry done comfortably while.they are fully relaxed.

Dr. Ted Haines also offers Nitrous Oxide treatment. Nitrous Oxide is commonly referred to as “Laughing Gas.” This mild sedative inhalant will put you in a euphoric state of relaxation and will help make the dental procedures much easier for you to handle.

We understand that going to the dentist can be very difficult for some people. Dental phobia is actually a lot more common than you may think. It is estimated that about 15% of Americans avoid going to the dentist because of this reason.

Healthy Gums | Snohomish, WA

prevention of dental diseaseKeeping your gums in a healthy state is a lot more important than you may think. In addition to brushing and flossing, a healthy diet can also help you maintain healthy gums.

By eating properly, you are providing vitamins, minerals, and nutrients for your gums and teeth, which can help keep your gums and teeth healthy. Not everyone knows this, but Fluoride is found naturally in some foods, so by consuming them, you are effortlessly helping contribute to tooth decay prevention. Fluoride, also found in your water supply (in most areas), can help reduce cavities by up 60%.

While on the topic of food, it is important to point out that certain foods can be very detrimental to the health of your gums and teeth. Particularly, foods high in sucrose (also known as granulated sugar) are damaging to teeth. Although very tasty, it is the leading cause of tooth decay.

Here are a few more ways to help keep your gums healthy:

  • Brush often – Whenever you eat, you are leaving behind bacteria in your mouth that, if left alone, can cause plaque.
  • Floss daily – It is best to floss 2-3 times a day. Flossing is essential to getting rid of all the bacteria that is trapped between your teeth (the areas your tooth brush cannot reach).
  • Use mouthwash – Not only does it leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean, it also helps get rid of bacteria. If you can, use it after every meal. It is important to note that mouthwash is not nearly as effective as brushing or flossing.
