Hey, my name is Shelly Katalgo. My love for sedation dentistry started in high school. My best friend had a severe fear of going to the dentist and I wanted to help her feel better about it. Although I always enjoyed my dental visits, I felt bad that she struggled so much with going to hers. My parents taught me about sedation dentistry and I instantly dreamed of becoming a dental professional. I wanted to help kids like my friend stay fear free throughout their appointments by using gentle techniques and professional medications. Although I opted to follow a different career path, my passion for dentistry remained throughout the years. I will update my site with developments in this industry as soon as they are reported. I will also discuss the benefits of sedation dentistry in detail. Thanks for visiting. I hope you come back soon.

Composite fillings are white or tooth-colored. Not only do they blend in well with your teeth, but they are also extremely strong and durable. If you have old amalgam fillings in your mouth, you may want to consider getting them replaced with composite fillings, and here are several reasons you may want to consider this.

If you're putting off having your dental work done because you're worried about the dentures, it's time to stop procrastinating. Postponing your dental work will only make the problems get worse.

Teeth staining is something that happens to everyone to some extent, and is something everyone should be concerned about. Of course, some people will struggle with teeth staining and discoloration more than others for many reasons. Along with things like genetics, which can play a role in many dental concerns, some people may also have a worse diet when it comes to eating foods that stain teeth; additionally, some may not have a good oral hygiene routine, or it may be that some people aren't using quality dental products.

If you are going to see an orthodontist, it is absolutely essential that you see your orthodontist regularly. Otherwise, there is no way that your orthodontist will be able to straighten your teeth. Braces incrementally straighten your teeth and they will not be able to accomplish this goal if you do not visit the orthodontist regularly. Your orthodontist will need to make regular adjustments to your braces to make sure your teeth move in the right direction.
