Sedation dentistry is any dental procedure performed while the patient is under sedation. Oral conscious sedation allows the patient to remain alert and follow instructions while keeping him or her completely relaxed and minimizing fear and discomfort. Dr. Mikhail Pliousnine is a qualified practitioner of sedation dentistry and recommends it for patients whose fear keeps them from receiving the dental care they need. It is ideal for children or adults who have strong gag reflexes or who require long, complex procedures that otherwise be uncomfortable.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, usually made of titanium or a titanium alloy, that support restorative treatments like crowns and bridges. The advantage of implants over traditional supports is that they maintain the integrity of the underlying bone and tissue, providing a stronger permanent tooth replacement.
Invisalign braces are clear plastic aligner trays custom made to fit over and gently straighten your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, the trays can be removed before meals and are virtually invisible. While not for everyone, Invisalign braces are ideal for adults who want to straighten their smile without the embarrassment and hassle of traditional braces.
The cost of dental care ranges depending on the procedure; however, most extended healthcare benefits include at least partial coverage for routine checkups and standard dental procedures, such as fillings or restorations. In the event that coverage is not available, the staff at College Manor Dental Centre will work with you to provide affordable treatment options.
Your first appointment will take approximately 1 hour and includes a complete dental exam, including digital X-rays if necessary. Subsequent appointments can range anywhere from half an hour to several hours, depending on the type and complexity of the treatment. You will be informed of the approximate appointment length at the time of scheduling, and all procedures will be reviewed in detail so that you understand them completely before consenting to treatment.
