High levels of anxiety, the need for extensive treatment, physical disabilities, and other factors can all turn dental visits into a daunting prospect. We understand that, which is why we offer various sedation options to help our patients relax. Whether you just need something to soothe your nerves, such as nitrous oxide, or you require general anesthesia, we have the equipment, training, and expertise necessary to accommodate you. We always take precautions to ensure that the sedation we offer is both safe and effective.

Treat TMJ/Headaches

Many dental offices offer some treatment for TMJ disorder and its associated headaches and other symptoms. However, we go a step above and beyond basic treatments. We will carefully evaluate your jaw’s structure and function and help you find true and lasting freedom from your discomfort. Occlusal adjustments and occlusal splints are just two of the treatments we offer. We can even provide TENS therapy, which uses a gentle electrical current to relax stressed muscles and provide fast pain relief.

Eliminate Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea is a dangerous condition that hinders breathing at night; a CPAP machine is the most common treatment for it. However, Dr. Patel, one of our on-staff dentists, is able to provide a more comfortable alternative for many patients. He has undergone advanced training to understand sleep apnea, and he works alongside local experts to make sure that patients receive treatment that is effective and comfortable. He often provides custom-made oral sleep appliances to gently move patients’ jaws so they can breathe easier each night.

Experience and education are two important factors that each dentist in our dental office uses to help patients achieve healthy, beautiful smiles. However, one of our on staff dentists, and Dr. Manisha Patel are proud to have attended the world-renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI). Their advanced training in dental implants, orthodontics, TMJ treatment, and porcelain veneers allow them to combine long-lasting function with amazingly natural-looking aesthetics.
