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.

Your dental hygienist helps keep your teeth in good shape by performing preventive care. During a visit to your dental hygienist, you can expect your teeth to be cleaned. Although you are likely brushing your teeth at least twice a day at home, your efforts will not remove tartar that may have accumulated on your teeth since your last visit to the dental office. Tartar is hardened or calcified plaque. The substance begins to build up when you don't clean your teeth soon after plaque deposits occur.

One of the first steps of an orthognathic procedure comes before the actual surgical procedure is performed. This involves outfitting your teen with a set of traditional braces. These braces are designed to get your teen's smile as straight as possible and are worn during the actual operation. In order for this to be successful, it is important to ensure that the braces remain as tight as possible. Braces can quickly loosen when your teen wears them if they are not treated with care.
