How a General Dentist Can Help
A common problem for many general dentistry patients is jaw pain. If you’ve ever had to deal with chronic jaw pain, then you know how annoying and painful it can be. Daily activities like chewing your food and even drinking your favorite beverages can become a chore if you are suffering from jaw pain and increased sensitivity. Although it can be difficult to diagnose, jaw pain can result from sinus pressure, TMJ, or even a dental infection. Even though you may not always know where it comes from at first, relieving jaw pain can be incredibly easy when you work a qualified general dentist from our Scottsdale dental practice.
Your general dentist can help determine where your jaw pain is coming from and can help you make a plan for relief so that you can start working towards a pain-free future. Relieving jaw pain can be as simple as using a mouth guard at night to prevent grinding and morning jaw pain. Other techniques, including those that are designed to relieve TMJ and other disorders can also be incredibly helpful for those who are suffering from jaw pain. For some patients, relieving jaw pain means having surgery to correct damage or to repair a malformation of the jaw.
Scottsdale Arizona Sedation Dentistry
Oral conscious sedation is a great way to have an anxiety-free dental experience. Sedation can create little to no memory of dental treatment, smells, or sounds. Oral conscious sedation is given in a pill form. A person under sedation is sleepy yet coherent allowing communication to take place. Douglas Family Dentistry is one of the premier Scottsdale sedation dentistry offices who has allowed people that have high to low dental anxiety to have a great experience. A person may respond during treatment while sedated because your body is completely relaxed. Sedation can be used even with a small dental appointment. As expert Scottsdale Sedation Dentists, we allow any patient that fits the medical criteria to use sedation dentistry options in our dental office. Oral conscious sedation is accommodating to most budgets.
