How To Spend Less Time In The Dental Chair This Year [BLOG]

We know that no matter how much you love visiting us at Bayou Dental Group, you’d still probably prefer to spend your afternoon on other things.

Hey, we get it! We live in a busy time with lots of responsibilities competing for our attention.

In that spirit, we’re sharing some ways you can spend less time in the dental chair and still keep your smile healthy and beautiful in 2018!

End The Long Wait For Dental Crowns With CEREC!

Dental crowns are one of the most common restorative treatments available, but they can also be the most inconvenient.

That’s due to the wait time for the fabrication of permanent dental crowns in most offices across the country.

However, you don’t have to spend weeks wearing an uncomfortable temporary crown while you wait for a permanent one. That is, if you choose Bayou Dental Group!

CEREC technology has completely changed restorative dentistry. It’s a combination of cutting-edge design software and a small milling machine that create a permanent dental crown in one convenient visit!

While you watch from the dental chair, we custom-design your dental crown on the computer. After just a few minutes, it’s off to the milling machine that uses that design to perfectly craft your permanent crown right before your eyes!

Once the crown is finished, we place it and adjust as needed so you can walk away from your appointment without scheduling a follow-up visit like in the past.

Take Whitening Treatment Home With You!

The most commonly requested cosmetic treatment in dentistry today is teeth whitening. It’s an easy, affordable way to enhance your smile and boost your confidence at the same time.

What makes teeth whitening treatment at Bayou Dental Group even more appealing is that we give you the option to take it home with you!

Imagine that you could get a whiter smile in the comfort of your own home at a pace you control. Of course, our dental chairs are more comfortable than most, but what’s cozier than the thought of sitting on your couch using one of our prescription-strength take-home kits to get the brighter smile you want?

Use Sedation Dentistry To Maximize Your Time!

Achieving and maintaining a healthy mouth is easier for some patients than it is for others. Maybe you have a fear about dental care that keeps you from those critical routine check-ups. Or perhaps you’ve just been blessed with genes that make oral health a struggle.

Whatever the case, you may have several dental issues that need to be fixed.

We can help reduce your time in the dental chair by performing a few treatments at one time.

This isn’t right for everyone. If you have a lot of work that’s needed on each side of your mouth, it may not be a good idea to numb both sides in one visit.

You may also need the kind of treatments that can’t be completed without a certain amount of time and healing between them.

But on occasion, we can cover multiple treatments in a single visit rather than spread them out over several appointments. This will save you travel time and days off from work!

We often find oral sedation to be helpful in maximizing a patient’s time by allowing you to be completely relaxed enough to knock out more than one procedure while the medication is in effect. Oral sedation will lessen your anxiety, calm your nerves, and leave you feeling more confident about dental care overall.

Make An Appointment

At a glance, you could’ve assumed we were going to tell you how to avoid routine dental appointments. While that certainly would cut your time in the dental chair, that’s not what we mean.

By now you know we’re talking about how we can help you get the most out of your visits with us so you can focus on more important things.

Quality dental care is as much about trusting the right professionals as it is choosing a modern office. With both, you get lasting solutions that suit your needs best and the tools to make your treatment as convenient and comfortable as possible.

You’ll find that kind of care with Dr. Finley and our team at Bayou Dental Group!
