Family Dental Care vs. Traditional Dental Care 
"Although family dental groups have been around for years, they're unique in that they provide a variety of treatments in-house, whereas many practices are built around a specialty. According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), the majority of dentists in North America – about 140,000 – practice general dentistry. General dentists can treat your whole family and are considered your primary care dentist. To be sure, general dentists often do have training in many specialized areas, like orthodontics, root canal therapy and even cosmetic dentistry. What makes family dental groups appealing is how they offer more than one specialized dentist in their practice, offering the convenience of a "one-stop" solution for all your family's dental care needs. Whether you need a pediatric dentist, someone who specializes in treating children's teeth; or an endodontist, who trea…

Do you struggle with dental anxiety? If you, you are not alone:

"Between 5% and 8% of Americans avoid dentists out of fear, estimates Peter Milgrom, DDS, director of the Dental Fears Research Clinic at the University of Washington in Seattle and author of Treating Fearful Dental Patients. A higher percentage, perhaps 20%, experiences enough anxiety that they will go to the dentist only when absolutely necessary, Milgrom tells WebMD. Milgrom's dental practice specializes in fearful patients. About two-thirds of them relate their fear to a bad experience in the dentist's office, Milgrom says. Another third have other issues for which fear of dentists can be an unpleasant side effect, such as various mood or anxiety disorderssubstance abuse, or posttraumatic stress. Fear of dentists stems not so much from the experience of pain as from the lack of control that patients experience in the dentist's chair, says Ellen Rodino, Ph…

Impacted Wisdom Teeth | Dental Surgery

Impacted Wisdom Teeth | Dental Surgery

"Impacted wisdom teethis a disorder where the third molars (wisdom teeth) are prevented from erupting into the mouth. This can be caused by a physical barrier, such as other teeth, or when the tooth is angled away from a vertical position.[1] Completely unerupted wisdom teeth usually result in no symptoms, although they can sometimes develop cysts or neoplasms. Partially erupted wisdom teeth can develop cavities or pericoronitis. Removal of impacted wisdom teeth is advised in the case of certain pathologies, such as nonrestorable caries or cysts. 

Wisdom teeth likely become impacted because of a mismatch between the size of the teeth and the size of the jaw. Impacted wisdom teeth are classified by their direction of impaction, their depth compared to the biting surface of adjacent teeth and the amount of the tooth's crown that extends through gum tissue or bone. Impacted wisdom teeth can also be classified by the presence or absence of sym…

Here is my Facebook Post from the day of the dental procedure: "❤️Heartfelt thank you to Dr. David Geiger and Andrea Willis for taking such good care of me today. Not gunna lie I was a little nervous this morning, but in the end, there was absolutely nothing to worry about!" 
The day of my wisdom tooth surgery, I was a little nervous. Dr. Geiger recommended that I use Nitrous Oxide to help me relax during the procedure. At LADD Dental Group, we offer multiple forms of sedation dentistry, but I felt like Nitrous was the best sedation dentistry option for me.  
During the procedure I didn't feel any pain. There were certain times that I felt pressure and could feel them applying force to get the tooth out, but I never felt pain. Dr. Geiger made sure I was comfortable to enti…
