Though most oral surgery treatments are outpatient procedures, and you are able to return home afterwards, it can still be beneficial to be prepared. Not only will these early preparations make the day of surgery easier, it can also aid in the healing process as well. Dr. Kennedy and his team at Turnagain Dental do their best to make each oral surgery procedure less stressful for their patients by going over ways they can prepare for their surgery day and tips for a faster and more comfortable recovery.
When your dentist tells you that you need oral surgery, it can cause a lot of anxiety. Especially if you need to go to another dental office to have the procedure done. At Turnagain Dental, Dr. Kennedy performs all of our oral surgery procedures in the same office. This allows our patients the comfort and convenience of having their surgery done by their own dentist in the same office they go to for everything else. We also strive to make sure that all of your questions are answered prior to your oral surgery procedure so you know what to expect.
Going to the dentist can already be an overwhelming experience for some people, and wondering how to pay for it can make it worse. The financial aspect of your dental care, from what your insurance covers to what to do if you don’t have insurance, can be confusing. At Turnagain Dental we will do our best to walk our patients in the Anchorage, AK area through their options before their treatment.
Our teeth are made to last a lifetime, yet there are many reasons why our oral health can begin to decline. One of the main contributors to the wearing down of our teeth are the foods and drinks we consume on a regular basis. While it is best to avoid most of these products, a few can be eaten in moderation and there are certain ways to keep them from causing harm to your teeth. Oral health starts at home, which is why Dr. Kennedy and his team at Turnagain Dental focus on preventative care.
When tooth decay spreads to the pulp of your tooth and a root canal can’t save it, an extraction is necessary to stop the spread of the infection into your bone. Yet, what happens after the tooth is pulled? At Turnagain Dental we not only provide in-office extractions, but also offer our patients several restorative dentistry options. Whether you choose dental bridges or implants, we will go over the pros and cons of each so you can make an informed decision.
