How can I relieve my dental anxiety?

Our friendly team has many ways to help relieve dental anxiety. We offer dental sedation for a painless, relaxing visit. You can choose the method that suits your needs best, from laughing gas to IV sedation. You can also choose from an extensive comfort menu to help you feel at home, including blankets, pillows, headphones, and more!

Do you offer sleep apnea treatment?

Yes, we do! Our dentists are trained to offer sleep apnea treatment so you can feel rested and refreshed. During a consultation, you’ll talk to one of our professionals about your symptoms and receive a thorough examination.

If we feel you’re at risk for sleep apnea, we’ll order a Sleep Optima at-home sleep test, which will tell us more about your nightly sleep behaviors and whether you may benefit from a custom oral appliance for better rest and better health!

What is gum disease?

Gum disease is a bacterial infection caused by plaque buildup between your teeth and under your gumline. It’s preventable and treatable in its early stages, but if ignored for too long, it can cause your gums to pull away from your teeth, and eventually, make them fall out.

At Edgewood Dental Care, we do all we can to keep that from happening. Our skilled dentists use modern technology, such as digital X-rays and state-of-the-art dental lasers, to accurately detect and effectively treat gum disease.

Are there health benefits to straight teeth?

Yes, there are. When your teeth are aligned correctly, it’s easier for you to clean them during your daily brushing and flossing. It’s also easier to remove plaque and tartar during professional cleanings. Plus, realigning your bite can reduce wear and tear on your teeth. We offer multiple orthodontic options if you are looking to straighten your smile.

What is the best age for my child’s first dental appointment?

The American Dental Association recommends that your child be seen about six months after their first tooth arrives. For most children, that means the first dental appointment would be at around a year old. Some kids are ready at that age, but some need another year before they are able to participate in their appointment. If you’re not sure, give us a call, and we’ll help you plan a happy visit. Because of our convenient hours and large number of patient rooms, we can often see your entire family at the same time!
