Keeping You Comfortable

sleep dentistry Yuma

At The Yuma Dentist, we make a conscious effort to help our patients feel comfortable. Though our chairs are cushy as can be, we are not only talking about physical comfort here. We are talking about emotional comfort. In other words, peace of mind.

Here are four ways we are committed to your peace of mind at Yuma Family Dentist in Yuma:

1. We don’t judge you. The dental team at Yuma Family Dentist is here to help you, regardless of the state of your teeth. We have treated patients with severe tooth neglect, advanced gum disease, enamel erosion caused by eating disorders, tooth damage caused by illegal drug use, baby bottle tooth decay, tobacco-stained teeth: basically, every imaginable dental issue. We don’t live in a bubble. We understand and empathize with our patients.

2. We protect you from pain. From topical analgesics to sedation, we will eliminate pain as best we can.

3. We help you with your dental anxiety. Fear of the dentist is far more common than you might realize and certainly nothing to be ashamed of. Sedation dentistry not only assists in pain management, it puts you in a deeply relaxed state. We offer laughing gas (nitrous oxide) and oral conscious sedation. With the latter, you’ll need a ride to and from our office.

4. We communicate with you.
 Procedures are thoroughly explained and all your questions will be answered prior to treatment. If you are not sure you want to initiate treatment, we are happy to let you think about it for a while. There is no rush.

If you have postponed dental treatment for any reason, we encourage you to give The Yuma Dentist a try. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.

Save Money With Dental Implants At Yuma Family Dentist

Yuma Tooth ImplantsQ: When is the least expensive tooth replacement method really the most expensive?
A: When it ends up costing far more in the long run.

Many people who lose a tooth do not understand the importance of replacing it with a dental implant. But a dental implant from The Yuma Dentist is almost like getting back a natural tooth.

Dental implants have rightly been hailed as one of the greatest advancements in the history of dentistry. By now they have moved from being a rare procedure to mainstream dentistry. Yet many people worry that the cost is prohibitive.

Dr. David Scharf, a Board Certified Periodontist and Dental Implant Surgeon and a Clinical Assistant Professor at New York University College of Dentistry says:

Many times consumers will choose to replace a missing tooth with a removable partial denture because it is the least expensive option. In the long run however, removable partial dentures may be more costly due the loss of adjacent teeth and the need for future replacements. Many people opt to replace teeth with dental implants because they do not compromise the survival of the adjacent teeth.

Dr. Scharf notes…

With the price of gasoline and food soaring people try to cut back wherever they can. Unfortunately choosing the least expensive options for tooth replacement can have some very costly ramifications down the road.

If you are missing a tooth, you may still be able to save the adjacent teeth if you receive an implant soon. An implant bonds with the jaw bone and helps maintain its stability.

To schedule a dental implant consultation, call Yuma Family Dentist. We also offer general dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.

When Style And Oral Health Collide

When Style And Oral Health Collide in Yuma

Oral piercing is a popular form of body art, but just because it’s popular doesn’t mean it’s safe. When patients at The Yuma Dentist ask about the safety of oral piercings, we make sure they are aware of the possible consequences.

First, patients should know that infection is always a major concern with any piercing, but because the mouth is the perfect environment for breeding bacteria, oral piercings are especially problematic. Your ability to chew, swallow, and speak can also be impaired by an oral piercing.

Oral piercings can lead to an increase in saliva flow and, possibly, excessive drooling, something my dental patients generally want to avoid. It’s also critical to know that chipped or cracked teeth, damage to dental fillings, and metal sensitivity are other possible issues.

Another serious risk associated with piercings that should concern people is nerve damage. Many people experience temporary numbness after a piercing, but for some, the damage is severe and sensations never return. An injured nerve can also impact facial movements as well as your sense of taste.

If you’ve read through this and still want to choose a tongue bar or lip piercing, please talk to us first so you can consider the safest decision possible for your oral health.

The Yuma Dentist, in Yuma AZ, can counsel you on these issues. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
