Dental Anxiety

Laughing Gas Available 😷

We are a local dentist that uses laughing gas, also known as nitrous oxide.

This is a mild dental sedative that helps take the edge off, so you feel stress-free and more comfortable. This option is especially effective for children.

We very carefully administer the laughing gas to a degree in which you feel comfortable and slowly bring you off it once the procedure is done. Super easy!

Oral Sedation Available 🌌

For patients who would like a deeper level of sedation, the combination of laughing gas and sedative pills may be the right choice for you.

This combination will bring you to a state of sleepiness or apathy, meaning you just won’t care about what’s going on.

After your appointment, you’ll have little memory of what happened. More importantly, your dental work is behind you!

Anxiety-Ridden Patients We’ve Treated

What is Crowding?

Crowded teeth are a very common and obvious problem. Teeth overlap and can even
become twisted when there isn’t enough room for them in the mouth.

Causes
Crowding can be caused by having a jaw that’s smaller than ideal for all your teeth, but often it is also caused by tooth angles or molars that aren’t rotated correctly. Crowding tends to worsen as you age if not corrected.

If you don’t fix it
Crowded teeth are hard to clean between, making them prone to collecting dental debris and putting them at risk for tooth decay and gum disease. They are also at high risk of premature wear and fracture.

How to correct Crowding
Reveal® Clear Aligners can correct tooth crowding, by correcting teeth angles and rotation as well as their position within the jawbone.

What is an Overbite?

Overbite is a misalignment of the bite causing the upper front teeth to mostly or entirely cover the lower front teeth.

Causes
Overbites are normally the result of having a small lower jaw. The lower front teeth may bite into the roof of the mouth and experience crowding issues as a result of the poor alignment.

If you don’t fix it
Because an overbite is a jaw alignment problem, not just a teeth alignment problem, depending on the severity your orthodontist may want to first correct the jaw alignment, using a Motion 3D appliance or another method, before finishing your treatment with Reveal® Clear Aligners.

How to correct 
Because an overbite is connected to jaw alignment problems, a clear aligner may not be sufficient to correct the problem. Some cases are treatable with aligners like Reveal, however. If you have an overbite and want to see if you qualify for Reveal Aligners, contact a doctor near you.

What is Spacing?

A little space is good for teeth. But too much can give you a gap-toothed appearance.

Causes
Excessive spacing can be caused by having a jaw that’s larger than ideal for all your teeth, but often it is also caused by tooth angles or molars that aren’t rotated correctly. Gaps can also develop as a result of gum disease or tooth loss.

If you don’t fix it
Some people feel self-conscious about the gaps in their teeth. And others may struggle with biting and chewing certain foods or speaking clearly.

How to correct 
Orthodontic treatment with Reveal® Clear Aligners is the perfect way to straighten teeth and close up unwanted gaps in your smile.

What is an Overjet?

An overjet is when the upper teeth protrude forward and sit in front of the bottom teeth. An overjet can not only affect your appearance, but can also cause difficulty chewing, drinking, and biting.

Causes
Often referred to as “buck teeth” an overjet is frequently cause by a habit like thumb-sucking that pushed the front teeth out of healthy alignment.

If you don’t fix it
Moderate cases can cause uneven tooth wear and severe cases can lead to jaw pain. Many people are also self-conscious of this type of bite misalignment.

How to correct 
Treatment with a Reveal® Clear Aligners can be a very effective way to correct an overjet and bring the teeth back to a healthy alignment.

What is a Crossbite?

Your upper teeth are supposed to close down slightly over the outsides of your lower teeth. But in a crossbite,
one or more of your lower teeth overlap the front outer surface of your upper teeth. Crossbites
can occur in front or back teeth.

Causes
Crossbites are often due to a discrepancy in the jaw or tooth positioning or both.

If you don’t fix it
A crossbite in front teeth puts them at risk for chipping and gum recession. A crossbite in back teeth can cause uneven wear and damage.

How to correct 
Reveal® Clear Aligners can be used to treat crossbites caused by tooth positioning. If the crossbite jaw positioning, your orthodontist may want to first correct the jaw alignment, using a Motion 3D appliance or another method, before finishing your treatment with Reveal® Clear Aligners.

What is an Underbite?

An underbite is when your lower jaw protrudes beyond your upper jaw, and lower teeth sit in front of the upper teeth.

Causes
The opposite of an overjet, underbites are primarily due to genetics and sometimes caused by childhood habits.

If you don’t fix it
Underbites can make some people feel self-conscious about their smile. Left untreated if can sometimes lead to rapid tooth wear on your molars, Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ syndrome) problems and jaw pain.

How to correct 
Because an underbite is a jaw alignment problem, not just a teeth alignment problem, your orthodontist may want to first correct the jaw alignment, using a Motion 3D appliance or another method, before finishing your treatment with Reveal® Clear Aligners.

What is an Open Bite?

An open bite is any spot in your smile where your upper and lower teeth don’t touch when you bite down. Teeth in an open bite often have a protruded appearance.

Causes
An open bite most often appears between upper and lower teeth at the front of the mouth as a result of habits like thumb-sucking or tongue-thrusting.

If you don’t fix it
Open bites can make it very difficult to speak clearly or to use your teeth to bite into foods like sandwiches and apples.

How to correct
A clear aligner is an excellent way to fix an open bite. If you have an open bite that you would like to correct, Reveal® Clear Aligners are an excellent way to fix an open bite.

What are Crooked Teeth?

This is when your front teeth are mis-angled and may need to be leveled — this type of misalignment is often accompanied by some level of crowding.

Causes
Crooked teeth can be a cause or a result of crowding.

If you don’t fix it
Crooked teeth are hard to clean between, making them prone to collecting dental debris and putting them at risk for tooth decay and gum disease. They are also at high risk of premature wear and fracture.​

How to correct Crooked Teeth
Reveal® Clear Aligners is a safe and simple way to correct crooked teeth and crowding.
