Helping our patients maintain a healthy mouth and smile is the main goal of general dentistry. We prefer to provide more minor, preventive care than to see patients suffer with more intensive treatments from a problem that was not managed in time. We want to ensure that your oral health is in its optimal state and positively contributing to the health of your entire body. We are here to brighten your smile and pave the way for a brighter life.
Arrowhead Ranch Dentistry is committed to offering a full range of dentistry services. Whether you’ve had repairs or need a complete replacement, we recommend continual check-ups to assess your gums and bone density to assess the surrounding areas associated with your implant.
A beautiful smile is one of the most sought after cosmetic features in the world. People from all backgrounds and professions want a bright, straight smile, and we are here to help turn that desire into reality. Whether through minor adjustments or major treatment plans, our cosmetic dentistry practice aims to improve your smile and help you build confidence in the way your teeth look.
CEREC is wonderful because in only one visit you can get a smile you will be proud of! The process uses the latest technologies, allowing us to make artificial teeth right in our office.
After a thorough examination with x-rays, we can determine if the procedure will work for you. We will go through all of your options with you so that you can be sure you’re choosing the one that will work best for you.
At Arrowhead Ranch Dentistry, we know that many people are anxious about visiting the dentist and receiving procedures. Since we don't want fear to hold you back from getting the dental care you need, we offer sedation dentistry to improve your experience. Sedation dentistry allows you to relax while we perform a dental treatment to promote your health. At the same time, you will remain conscious and aware of your surroundings. Instead of avoiding dental procedures, ask us about our sedation dentistry.
At our dental office, we make efforts to create a calm and welcoming atmosphere that will help our patients feel comfortable. Nonetheless, we understand that many patients are anxious about dental visits, especially when they enter the dentist's chair or when they require a certain procedure. That's why we provide the extra level of relaxation that sedation provides. We offer sedation for dental procedures, as well as for regular cleanings. We have different types of sedation dentistry to fit the needs of each situation.
With oral conscious sedation, your anxiety will melt away and you'll feel comfortable during your dental treatment. We will take care of your oral health while you relax. You will stay conscious, and we are able to talk to you about the treatment while it's happening. With this type of sedation, you would take a pill that will help you feel calm. If you have this type of sedation dentistry, we ask that you have someone else drive you on the day of your treatment. Nonetheless, the effects of the sedation do not linger, so you will feel alert and normal again soon after the treatment.
We also offer nitrous oxide, often referred to as laughing gas, as a sedation option. This type of sedation also helps you relax if you are nervous about a procedure or regular visit to the dentist. Laughing gas is a great option for feeling comfortable and having a better experience at our office. In this case, you would breathe from a mask with nitrous oxide and oxygen. In general, people can drive themselves after having nitrous oxide gas.
Sedation dentistry is separate from medication that you might receive for pain. While sedation dentistry will help you relax, you might also receive a local anesthetic or general anesthesia for certain dental procedures. If the idea of sedation or pain medication makes you nervous, please talk to us about your concerns.
If you have questions about sedation or the different types, our staff would be happy to answer them. Allow us to help you calm down about your dental procedure so you can get the care you need for your optimal state of health.
