What are dental implants?

Dental implants are prosthetics made of titanium alloy that replace the root of the tooth and support a prosthesis. These prosthetics, once anchored to a healthy bone, provide reliable stability for the patient’s new teeth. Implants are suitable for patients who have lost one, several, or all of their teeth. They contribute towards improving your physical appearance and ability to chew.

For some people, dental anxiety can be debilitating and they avoid visiting the dentist. Now patients can now sleep comfortable and anxiety free with intravenous sedation (IV sedation). Also called sleep dentistry, intravenous sedation involves the administration of pharmacological agents to help patients cope with their dental fear. IV sedation allows the patient to remain in a relaxed state so they can receive their dental treatment.

Perhaps there is no other healthcare profession like dentistry that has the unfortunate reputation of wanting to cause pain rather than prevent it.  For all the good that dentists do to improve our well being, there are many patients with fears about sitting in the dentist’s chair.
