We recommend that you avoid smoking for a minimum of 48 hours prior to your appointment to ensure a safe and quick recovery.

Don't Let Dental Anxiety Negatively Implant Your Health

Unfortunately, avoiding dental care can lead to various health problems such as pain, oral health issues, worsened anxiety, and the need for more complex and costly procedures. Neglecting oral care can also make teeth more prone to decay and gum disease. If left unchecked, gum disease can progress to periodontitis and cause bacteria to spread throughout the body, leading to systemic infections and complications, especially for those with pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, respiratory disease, or heart disease. Fortunately, with affordable and comforting sedation dentistry, clinically excellent oral surgery is just a phone call away.
