WAYZATA, MN, October 12, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Jason McDowell and the team at Wayzata Dental are excited to announce the launch of the practice's new website, wayzatadental.com.
It is their hope that patients will find that the website enables them to access important information about their options for getting a healthier and more attractive smile. Patients are also able to make appointments online and read testimonials from actual patients.
Wayzata Dental provides patients with a variety of general, cosmetic, preventative, and restorative treatments to ensure a lifetime of beautiful, healthy smiles.
Veneers: For the Perfect Smile
For patients who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their smile, porcelain veneers can provide beautiful results, transforming the smile almost instantly. Layers of porcelain are custom-made for the individual patient and bonded to the fronts of the teeth, covering any flaws and creating a beautiful smile. Patients are able to choose exactly how the veneers will look, from the shade of white used to the size of the veneers.
Invisalign: For a Straighter Smile
Invisalign clear braces are a modern orthodontic option for patients who desire a straighter smile or have malocclusions (bite problems) and would prefer not to wear traditional metal braces. Invisalign aligners are worn to slowly shift the teeth into their proper places. Patients wear a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until the teeth are in place.
There are many advantages to choosing the Invisalign system. The aligners are removable, so patients can take them out before eating, brushing, or flossing. Because the aligners are made of clear plastic, they are virtually invisible, which makes them a good option for professionals and anyone who is image-conscious. Invisalign also tends to be the most comfortable option for orthodontic treatment.
Dental Implants: For a Complete Smile
Patients who are missing teeth can greatly benefit from dental implants. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth and restore the patient's ability to eat and speak with ease.
Dental implants are placed into the gums during oral surgery. After the procedure, the implants need time to fuse with the jawbone. Then, abutments are placed on top of the implants, and crowns are placed on the abutments to replace the missing teeth. Patients who get dental implants often dramatically improve their quality of life, as well as the appearance of their smile.
Sedation: For a More Relaxed Dental Experience
For patients who feel anxious and fearful about going to the dentist, or for those who are undergoing invasive procedures, Wayzata Dental offers two forms of sedation: nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. Both are designed to help the patient feel completely relaxed and at ease during the dental procedure without being put completely to sleep.
Oral conscious sedation is used for more invasive procedures, such as the placement of dental implants. Patients who opt for oral conscious sedation are given a medication taken orally before the procedure begins. Nitrous oxide is used for more minor procedures; the patient inhales the nitrogen/oxygen combination during the procedure, minimizing the discomfort and anxiety he or she may feel.
Wayzata Dental provides comprehensive dental care for patients in the Wayzata, MN area.
