Dental Root Canal Treatment

Root Canals Save TeethTeeth Cleaning Dentist Watertown SD
No longer does a tooth with infected roots have to be extracted. We now know that removal of a tooth can cause other problems that can be avoided by restoring the tooth with a root canal. Our dentists are very experienced in the latest advancements of this therapy. In the past, patients often dreaded having to have this procedure. But with today’s techniques and modern anesthesia, it is very manageable and easy for a patient.
 

During this procedure, the interior pulp chamber of a tooth is completely removed and replaced with a special filling material, not the same as used for cavity restoration. Sometimes a crown is positioned over the tooth to give it added strength.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry Watertown SD
Dental Sedation Watertown SDIV Sedation for Easy and Worry-Free Treatments
We are understanding of all our patients’ needs and know the anxiety that shots, drills, and treatments can give the dentally challenged. We relieve all your fears and make it easy for you with sedation dentistry.  

Dr. Darin Bach is among the few qualified in the state to give IV sedation. This type of sedative provides the deepest level of calmness and takes effect in the shortest amount of time. As an IV is given directly into the bloodstream, we have complete control over the amount administered for the need required. You will not remember any of the procedure, and one hour will seem like just minutes. It is very safe and accurate.  

Patients who need extensive work completed but don’t want to keep coming back to the office can also choose sedation dentistry, which allows more work to be done in one session.  

It's easy to have confidence in Watertown Dental Care’s sedation dentistry program. Dr. Darin Bach has been a leader in the state of South Dakota, pioneering the use of IV sedation here. He has earned fellowship in both the Academy of General Dentistry and the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, which means his level of experience and education is virtually unmatched. His knowledge and passion are not unique; our dental team is dedicated to providing you with the safest, most comfortable care. Dr. Bach also has Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certification, allowing us to provide an exceptional level of safety to our patients. Your medical history review is extremely thorough, and our team monitors you constantly during treatment to ensure safety and comfort. 

We also offer lighter sedation as required with nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas. We want you to feel comfortable throughout longer appointments or relieved of any anxiety during any type of treatment.  

If you’ve been putting off necessary care for years, sedation dentistry may be just what you need to overcome your anxiety. With the use of sedation for every level of care, from routine visits to extensive procedures, we have made a high number of our patients extremely happy. You can join them!

Common Myths of Gum Disease # 3

Having gum disease means I will lose my teeth
Not so! You don’t have to lose any of your teeth to gum disease if you practice good oral hygiene. That means brushing your teeth twice a day, cleaning between your teeth daily, eating a healthy diet, and scheduling regular dental visits. Even if you are diagnosed with gum disease, your dentist can design a treatment plan to help you keep it under control.

Common Myths of Gum Disease # 2

I don't have cavities so I can't have gum disease
Being cavity-free doesn’t ensure you are in the clear where gum disease is concerned. That’s because gum disease is painless and many people have no idea they have it. Gums that bleed easily or are red, swollen or tender is a sign of gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease and the only stage that is reversible. When caught early gingivitis can usually be eliminated by a professional cleaning at the dental office, followed by daily brushing and flossing.

Common Myths of Gum Disease # 1

Gum disease is not that common
On the contrary, gum disease is extremely common. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, half of adults age 30 and older suffer from some form of gum disease. Gum disease, an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth, is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth. Plaque that is not removed with thorough daily brushing and cleaning between teeth can eventually harden into calculus or tartar.
