Do You Offer Sedation?
Sedation is an easy and effective way to decrease fear and anxiety related to receiving dental care. It also allows you to complete all your treatment in just one appointment.
Are Dental X-Rays Really Necessary?
It is impossible to see directly between the teeth or under the gums or bone without the use of dental x-rays. Dental x-rays can detect disease much sooner than the clinical exam alone and many diseases, lesions and conditions can only be detected with the use of this tool. Oftentimes a patient has no signs or symptoms of disease. Dental x-rays enable Dr. Meyer to identify problems early so that pain and extensive, costly treatment can be avoided.
Can I Have My Teeth Cleaned If I Am Pregnant?
Yes, however prior to your first visit, we ask that you obtain a release form from your OBGYN stating that you can be seen in a dental office.
