Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

One of the major benefits of sedation dentistry offered by San Jose general and cosmetic dentists at Top Best *8* San Jose Dentists Specialists Centers – Jonathan H. Kim, DDS, Inc. is that people often feel like their dental procedure lasts only a few minutes, when in fact it might have taken hours to perform. Therefore, complex dental procedures such as smile makeovers or extensive rebuilding procedures that normally require multiple visits can often be performed in fewer appointments.

If you are reluctant to change the appearance of your smile because you are afraid or anxious about undergoing long or complicated dental procedures, sedation dentistry can make you feel comfortable during the treatment process and help you achieve a smile you can be proud of.

Also, because sedation dentistry offered by San Jose general and cosmetic dentists at Top Best *8* San Jose Dentists Specialists Centers – Jonathan H. Kim, DDS, Inc. addresses some of the fears that keep people from going to the dentist on a regular basis, sedation dentistry patients are more likely to receive recommended routine care. As a result, they are less likely to neglect their oral health or allow oral health problems to build to the point when drastic dental treatments become necessary.

They are the dentists who are trained to perform not only the root canal procedure but also in repairing teeth with perforations, bleaching of discolored enamel and dentin, and to do microscopic surgery to save the teeth.

Implant Overdenture by San Jose/ Silicon Valley Prosthodontist

Implant Overdenture by San Jose Prosthodontist                                                                                                                                      Jonathan H. Kim, DDS, Inc. – Top Best *8* San Jose Dentists Specialists Centers offers free prosthodntic consultation.
When a patient is missing some or all of the teeth on the jaw, traditionally these patients have had to use dentures either full or partial.

With regards the patient who has lost all of his teeth, stability and retention of the denture may hamper the patient from enjoying eating, speaking. This may also create fear when socializing that the denture may slip and cause embarrassment. Dental implants may be placed to aid in retaining the denture and provide a more stable base allowing the patient to eat, speak and socialize as if they had all of their own teeth. Additionally, those patients who would need to wear a partial denture to replace a few missing teeth may have retention issues due to the placement of the remaining natural teeth or their shape can benefit from implant retained Overdentures.

For this type of overdentures, typically, 4 or 6 single implants can be used to support and secure an upper overdenture, while 2 or 4 implants will be utilized to secure a lower denture. Commonly, use of 4 or 6 implant on the upper jaw, will allow removal of the palate portion of the denture, which offers a more comfortable feel for the patient, and allows more taste sensation.

Benefits of an implant overdenture include:

1. Stable fit. No more loose dentures that cause embarrassment and lack of confidence
2. Elimination of adhesives and creams used with regular dentures.
3. Ability to speak more clearly and confidently.
4. Provides greater strength for better chewing ability.
5. Helps preserve bone by reducing bone deterioration.

San Jose Pedodontist – Your Child’s First Visit

Your Child’s First Visit
Children’s Dentistry

During the excitement of your child’s first year of development, you may not be thinking much about his or her teeth. But it’s important that your child see a pedodontist at Top Best *8* San Jose Dentists Specialists Centers – Jonathan H. Kim, DDS, Inc. early. Children should see a child dentist either within 6 months after their first tooth emerges through the gum (usually at 6 to 8 months) or by their first birthday. This early visit gives the pedodontist a chance to examine any existing teeth for decay and to look for any potential problems. It also gives the pedodontist an opportunity to educate parents. The San Jose pedodontist at Jonathan H. Kim, D.D.S.,Inc may talk to you about:

Good oral hygiene and cavity prevention
Fluoride needs
Oral habits
Preventing trauma
Developmental milestones
Non-nutritive sucking
Oral habits
Teething
Proper nutrition

After this first visit, the pedodontist will suggest a schedule of periodic checkups. While many children see their dentists every six months, some require more frequent observation.

Some health conditions require the child to take antibiotics before and after treatment to avoid certain bacterial infections. In addition, some medical or dental conditions can make the child more susceptible to dental problems, so the pedodontist may suggest more frequent visits.
