Gentle Professional Cleaning

A proper at-home oral hygiene regimen is key to maintaining your oral health, but a professional teeth cleaning is another essential component. These professional cleanings can protect your teeth and gums from decay, disease and other serious complications. Dentists recommend patients have their teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year, or every six months, for optimal results. You may require more frequent cleanings, however, depending on the current state of your oral health.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option your dentist may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes, you should start to feel the effects of the Nitrous Oxide. You won't fall asleep; instead, the Nitrous Oxide simply puts you at ease and eliminates any anxiety you may normally experience.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation dentistry is a medical procedure involving the administration of oral sedative drugs, generally to facilitate a dental procedure and reduce patients' fear and anxiety. If you're afraid, anxious, or apprehensive, let your dentist at Heartland Family Dental Care know; he or she will choose the right form of dental sedation for you. Call us at 217-540-5000 for an appointment.
