Are you putting off having needed dental work done because fear of pain or discomfort? Between 9% and 20% of Americans avoid going to the dentist because of anxiety or fear. However, not wanting to go to the dentist does not take away your need for dental work. If you need cosmetic dental work, then gentle sedation methods be the best option for treatment.
There are many reasons for cosmetic dentistry. For many people, they start with fixing damage or blemishes for a more appealing smile. Cosmetic procedures are not always “optional.” For example, bite problems or missing teeth can cause ongoing issues with headaches, jaw pain, infections, teeth spacing, and oral health in general. Your confidence may be extremely affected by having missing teeth, a yellow smile, or chips and breaks in your teeth. With gentle cosmetic dentistry from Dr. Reem Kidess of Scottsdale, Arizona, getting those fixes does not have to hurt.
