Many people fear (and avoid) going to their old Cincinnati dentist because they have bad memories of going to the dentist at a young age. Have you ever gone to have your teeth cleaned and had your gums accidentally nicked in the process? A painful experience with a dentist will leave a bad impression for years to come.
However, going to the dentist is of utmost importance for your overall health, so you’re putting yourself at risk if you’ve been avoiding the dentist. If this sounds like you, it’s time to search for a dentist who practices gentle dentistry. Gentle dentists know and emphasize the importance of making the patient’s experience as painless as possible.
Gentle dentistry: Less pain, more effective
Dr. Tom Hedge is a gentle Cincinnati dentist who has mastered the art of effectively performing dental work without causing great amounts of pain or discomfort. To accomplish this, he uses treatments and procedures which are less invasive and gentler on your mouth.
- Gum disease treatment: The traditional way to treat gum disease is by scaling and root planing, which involves scraping that often leaves your mouth feeling sore and tender. Dr. Hedge, however, uses Perio Protect trays to treat gum disease.
- The trays deliver medication to your gums, which is a much less invasive and much more comfortable way to remove plaque and tartar.
- Sedation dentistry: A visit with Dr. Hedge can be gentler for you emotionally, too. If you experience high anxiety about dental procedures, talk to us about sedation dentistry.
sedation dentistry, you can be placed in a deep state of relaxation without being completely put to sleep. Your procedure will seem to go by much more quickly, and you’ll be able to relax while you get the dental care you need.
Do not go to a dentist who will kill your gums! Dr. Hedge wants to be your gentle Cincinnati dentist. Call for a consultation to find out more about why we believe dentistry doesn’t have to be painful.
