Periodontal Procedures

“Periodontal” refers to the structures supporting and surrounding the teeth, including bones and gums.

Your dentist and dental hygienist will evaluate your periodontal health at every dental appointment and address any issues early.

Occasionally certain procedures will require a referral to a specialist. These procedures include scaling and root planing, gum grafts, and crown lengthening.

Nitrous Oxide

At Brightside Dental Studio we have nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, available as a mild sedative to use during your dental appointments. Nitrous oxide is frequently used to ease mild to moderate anxiety and can help to reduce pain. It is delivered using a small mask (hood) that fits over the nose and it is administered for the whole procedure to provide a calming effect.

At the end of the procedure, oxygen is administered to reverse the effects. Laughing gas is commonly used for younger patients, but is also available for use by anyone who requests it.
