Dental IV Sedation
Intravenous (IV) sedation refers to the administering of an anti-anxiety drug through the blood during your dental treatment. IV sedation dentistry is sometimes referred to as twilight or sleep dentistry.
Our focus at Dr. Sims, is on preventative care but we perform tooth extractions on a regular basis. We are always looking for ways to avoid a tooth extraction by helping keep your oral health in good shape.
After you’ve undergone a deep cleaning or periodontal surgery you’ll need to keep regular periodontal maintenance visits to maintain your gums and prevent the recurrence of gum disease.
Receding gums are when the gums pull back over time and expose the roots of your teeth. Receding gums can happen for many reasons including genetics, poor dental hygiene, over-brushing, and age.
Crown lengthening can reduce the bone level and gum tissue in order to gain better access to your tooth. Common conditions are: short tooth, severe tooth decay below the gum line, or broken teeth.
