Does the thought of undergoing dental care make you nervous or afraid? You’re definitely not alone. We want our patients to feel genuinely comfortable whenever they visit, and for that reason, our team offers nitrous oxide sedation as a helpful option. Nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”) is breathed in through a mask that fits over the nose while the patient is in the treatment chair. It should calm your nerves and help create an atmosphere that’s much more relaxed. You also don’t have to worry about inconvenient downtime afterwards – the effects wear off within minutes once the mask is removed.
With an intraoral camera, it’s easier than ever to get an up close and personal look at the inner workings of a particular smile. A camera-tipped wand is held comfortably in the mouth, and within seconds, high-resolution images are transmitted to a TV monitor in room. Dr. Balington regularly uses this helpful visual aid to point out problems and explain treatment options clearly. We want you to feel like a full, knowledgeable partner in your oral healthcare journey!
Do you remember the days of traditional film X-rays? There were big darkrooms, tedious wait times, and plenty of worry about the dangers of radiation exposure. Thankfully, Dr. Balington has transformed this essential process for the better here in Denton, TX. With digital radiography, your X-rays are instantly developed and available for viewing on our computer system once they’re captured. The amount of radiation used is greatly reduced by up to 80-90% as well for added safely, and patients can look forward to easy transfers to other doctors or insurance companies when needed.
