The fear is so bad that many people postpone preventive and restorative care, or worse, stop getting dental treatments altogether. Dentists at Distinctive Smiles of Dublin, Dr. Eric Buck and Dr. Hannah Burton, understand and offer oral sedation and nitrous oxide to calm dental phobia.

It’s a warm summer day, and you’re sitting on the front porch with a cool glass of ice water. A piece of ice flows into your mouth, and you decide to enjoy the cold. After letting the ice melt in your mouth for a bit, you take a bite, and pain shoots through your mouth. You spit out the ice, and with it, a shiny piece of tooth enamel. A relaxing summer day just turned into a trip to the dentist. Everyday people chip teeth for numerous reasons including biting into hard objects like ice, using teeth as tools to open packages or crack nuts, leaving bruxism (tooth grinding and clenching) untreated, and uneven pressure caused by a misaligned bite. The good news, is that these things can typically be avoided, and Distinctive Smiles of Dublin can repair chipped teeth, when these situations do arise.
