What is Sinsational?
Sinsational, or Sinsational Smile, is a tooth-whitening treatment that can make teeth up to five shades lighter. It takes around 20 minutes. The patient bites into a pre-filled tray made of silicone. The tray is flexible and can thus easily fit the patient’s mouth. The patient can thus remain relaxed and comfortable during treatment. The dentist will use an LED light to activate the whitening gel and thus speed the treatment.

What does a root canal involve?
A root canal in  Beach is a treatment done to save a severely infected or decayed tooth. The dentist will generally recommend root canal if the infection or decay has reached the pulp in the tooth.

The dentist will administer a local anesthetic to keep the patient comfortable. They will then drill a hole in the tooth, so they can remove all of the infected parts. After thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the tooth’s interior, they will fill it with gutta percha, a rubbery compound. The dentist will then cap the tooth with a crown to strengthen it.

What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is the use of different medications to keep a patient calm and relaxed while they are at the dentist. Many people fear the dentist, and some have full-blown phobias that keep them away even when they have a painful toothache.

There are four different grades of sedation dentistry: minimal sedation, moderate sedation, deep sedation, and general anesthesia. There are also several different ways to sedate the patient. The two most common methods are administering nitrous oxide or giving the patient a pill sometime before the procedure.
