Periodontal (Gum) Disease Therapy
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is caused by a build-up of plaque and bacteria between the teeth and gums. When left untreated, the gums become infected and if gum disease progresses, it becomes increasingly difficult and painful to treat. Progressed cases of gum disease can also lead to tooth loss.
When it comes to visiting the dentist to get any type of work done many patients are compromising their oral health because they experience anxiety. To help fight these fears and anxiety, Sindledecker Dentistry offers sleep dentistry to our patients for most of our procedures. Sleep dentistry, also known as sedation dentistry, involves the use of a pill or injection to help patients relax and have an anxiety-free experience while they undergo any dental procedure.
In laser dentistry, dental procedures are performed using lasers. The use of lasers allows many dental procedures to be performed with great precision, few complications and very little pain.
For people who are dissatisfied with their smiles but have not done anything about them because they are not interested in a mouthful of metal, Invisalign® “braces” may be a good option. They eliminate both the discomfort of metal wires and the inconvenience of adjustments. The Invisalign system uses virtually invisible aligners that straighten teeth without metal bands, brackets or wires. The custom-made trays are comfortable, and easy to remove for eating, brushing, flossing and special occasions. The clear-plastic Invisalign aligners are so inconspicuous that it is difficult to tell when someone is wearing them.
