You do not have to let dental fear and anxiety stop you from taking care of your oral health anymore. Nitrous oxide dentistry can make going to the dentist seem like a walk in the park.
Taking care of your teeth and gums is critical since we now know that inflammation or infections in your mouth can contribute to life threatening medical conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s. And, if it’s been at least a year since your last dental visit it is likely that you have one of the leading causes, periodontal disease, also known as gum disease.
We specialize in patients who are fearful and could tell many stories of how people’s lives have changed thanks to nitrous oxide. There are no needles or IV’s involved. It’s as easy as breathing and allows you to relax and feel good during your dental visit.
Don’t let anxiety or fear stop you from taking care of yourself. The condition of your mouth could be shortening your life and no one wants to lose teeth, have bad breath, or a smile you feel embarrassed to share.
We encourage you to give us a call and learn more about how we can help you take care of your mouth in a comfortable and caring way. We promise not to judge you if it’s been awhile since your last visit. We understand and will take excellent care of you.

Gum disease is a bacterial infection and a major source of inflammation in your body. Scientists believe that this chronic inflammation may be responsible for a connection between periodontal gum disease and other serious medical conditions.
The Manual of Clinical Periodontitis and Journal of Periodontitis used by gum disease specialists list the following diseases as being linked to not taking care of your oral health and living with active gum disease:
• Heart attacks
• Lung infections
• Pre-term babies
• Erectile dysfunction
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Colon cancer
• Brain abscesses
• Mouth and throat cancer
• Gastric conditions
• Chronic fatigue
• Pancreatic cancer
We don’t know about you, but after reading this list, choosing to brush, floss, and see your dentist regularly seems more important than ever.
If you are concerned about gum disease or want to catch up on your dental care, we would love to help. We promise to take great care of you

Loose, sloppy, and uncomfortable dentures are a thing of the past. New implant supported dentures that snap securely in place have revolutionized the denture experience for our patients needing to replace teeth.
If you or someone you love have ill-fitting dentures you would like to replace or are getting dentures for the first time, you will find the process both simple and comfortable.
Small dental implants are placed in the jaw where teeth roots used to live. This can be done with local anesthesia, but we also offer oral sedation for those of you who might feel nervous or prefer it.
Dentures are made with snaps that will fit to the implants. You simply slide your dentures into place and then snap them in. They unsnap easily when you want to take them out.
No more worries about your dentures moving around, falling out, or embarrassing you. You can eat, smile, laugh, and sing with confidence again.
If you are in the Knoxville area and would like to see if you are a candidate for these secure dentures we would love to meet with you and answer all of your questions. You can schedule an appointment by calling (865) 922-1613. Knoxville TN
Studies show that men are less likely to go to the dentist on a regular basis or focus on preventive care than women. That is, unless their wives talk them into it.
But, we believe men should be taking care of their teeth too, especially if they don’t like being in the dental chair.
Regular check ups and professional teeth cleaning can help prevent most dental problems, which means fewer toothaches, emergencies, and expensive treatment plans.
Here is what one man’s man has to say about taking care of his teeth.
If you don’t have a dentist you love, give us a call. Our office is a no judgement zone and we promise to take great care of you.
