Specialty services at PS Dental
Sedation: Sedation is a significant part of dentistry. Many patients could feel too anxious to visit the dentist, fearing the procedures could be painful and time-consuming. However, this isn’t true. We suggest mild sedation in the form of nitrous oxide, which is a gaseous sedative. For more complicated procedures, such as dental implants, gum grafting, etc. we would suggest deeper sedation to prevent pain and discomfort.
Invisalign: Orthodontic treatment using Invisalign is the most advanced one yet. It is backed by state-of-the-art technology, which is used to scan the teeth, create a digital impression, use it as a reference for fabricating the aligners, and keep track of the movement of the teeth during the treatment. Since Invisalign is made from dental-grade transparent plastic material, it stays under disguise and doesn’t get noticed easily. However, the walls of the aligner apply pressure on the teeth in a controlled manner, thereby moving them to their right positions.
TMD treatment: TMD is a disorder affecting the TMJ or the joints connecting the lower jaw to the skull. The TMJ could inflame when you apply a lot of stress on the tissues surrounding it, such as due to frequent snacking, biting and chewing hard objects, external trauma to the TMJ, etc. The condition can be treated by massage therapy and by the use of a night-time mouthguard.
Nightguard: Nightguards are used to protect the teeth from excessive wear due to an oral condition called bruxism. The teeth could undergo severe wear due to clenching the jaw or grinding the teeth. The night guard prevents contact between teeth from either jaw, thereby eliminating teeth wear and applying stress on the muscles around the TMJ.
Sports guard: A sports guard or an athletic guard is an oral appliance used to protect the teeth from external trauma while indulging in sports. The guard distributes the forces equally among the teeth, thereby preventing cracks or fractures to them. Athletes ought to get a customized sports guard to protect their teeth while indulging in sports for superior protection.
