Have you ever seen someone with a gap-toothed smile? It's kind of cute when they're a kid, right? But not su cute when they are an adult. There are only a handful of people who have been able to pull off the gap-toothed smile look, Michael Strahan comes to mind; but for the majority of folks who are not celebrities, it's a tough look to sell.
Why would someone allow themselves to go through life with a look they are embarrassed with? The answer is there are far too many reasons to list, but you have to believe that one of those reasons is a financial one. Too often people tend to believe that paying for cosmetic dentistry is way out of their budget. But if you think about it, cosmetic dentistry, in almost every form, is more affordable now than any other time in history.
So the real reason, if we thought about it hard enough, would have to be fear, right? people are just flat-out scared of getting into that dentist's seat. The thing is that "fear," is no longer a viable excuse either. Have you heard of, "sedation dentistry?" If not, then you'd better get to searching for what that is all about. We'll touch on it briefly here, but essentially, it's giving you what is known as "laughing gas," so you do not feel the pain associated with most invasive dental procedures.
Do you need a cavity drilled; and do not want to go through the agony of feeling that metal tip drill into your tooth? Ask for the mask, and you will not feel a thing. When it comes to intensive surgery, like multiple dental implants being placed, than sedation dentistry is not enough. That kind of surgery requires old-school anesthesia. For something that intense, you want to be totally knocked out, would you agree?
But you will not know what you need until you first sit down with an implant specialist, and find out exactly where you stand, and what options you have available to you. To do that, especially if you are living in, or around, Washington DC, search, "oral surgeon washington dc," to find the Tooth Implant Pros of Washington DC; a network that connects patients with implant dentists. You can also call to schedule your free oral examination; as well as free one-on-one consultation. The Tooth Implant Pros have locations all up and down the east coast.
