We have found that our patients prefer to come to one place for all of their oral health needs. The doctors at Angus Dentistry are highly trained in all aspects of general dentistry for the entire family. This means that most of the time you do not have to travel elsewhere to see specialists for procedures such as oral surgery, extractions, root canals, braces, gum treatment, cosmetic procedures or dentures. We especially enjoy caring for our pediatric and geriatric patients, as well as our patients with special needs. This flexibility saves you time and keeps your family’s complete dental care within one practice.
Dental implants are a natural looking, long lasting, comfortable and safe alternative to bridgework or dentures. Replacing a lost tooth with an implant is an ideal option for people with good oral health. Implants look like your natural teeth, and because of their “root” being secured to your jaw like a real tooth, neither you nor anyone else will know the difference.
Not everyone is a candidate for implants. We will inform you about the different factors that determine whether or not a patient fits the criteria of an implant recipient. Factors like pre-existing disease and bone loss can affect a patient’s ability to receive implants.

Sedation dentistry refers to the use of sedation during dental treatment. Sedation can range from the use of nitrous oxide to calm a patient to general anesthetics used to put patients to sleep. Patients with dental phobia, low pain tolerance, major dental treatment, physical handicaps or strong gag reflexes may require sedation. Procedures like fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals extractions, cosmetic procedures and periodontal treatments often require some sort of sedation.
Sedation is endorsed by the American Dental Association and is an effective may to make many patients comfortable during their dental visit. Before using a sedative of anesthetic, it is important to tell your dentist about any medications or medical treatments you are receiving. Before administering any sedative or anesthetic, your dentist will talk to you about the process of sedation and pre-and post-sedation instructions.

Early Dental Care
A child’s first dental visit should be scheduled around his/her first birthday. The most important part of the visit is getting to know and becoming comfortable with a doctor and their staff. A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future dental visits. Children should be encouraged to discuss any fears or anxiety they feel.
