An Array of Oral Health Options
Standard preventative care involves a routine cleaning and checkup with the dentist. But Dr. Audu also offers per patients such helpful services as:
- Oral cancer screening
- Fluoride treatment and dental sealants
- Teeth whitening
- Invisalign® Clear Braces
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Root canal treatment
- Crowns and bridges
- Porcelain veneers
- Dentures and partials
- Implant restoration
- Sleep apnea treatment
Here’s another reason that Dr. Audu is committed to gum disease prevention and early detection: More than 40,000 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed each year, according to the American Cancer Society. Dr. Audu offers complimentary oral health screenings to every patient in order to look out for signs of this potentially deadly disease.
Putting Patients at Ease
Dr. Audu is aware that some patients may be reluctant to see the dentist. Some of the reasons that dental anxiety is so common include:
- Fear of needles
- Anxiety caused by drilling or other instrument sounds
- Past dental trauma
This is why Dr. Audu offers mild sedation for patients who need help feeling calm during their treatment. The oral sedation we provide to patients at Museum Smiles simply calls for taking a pill the night before a visit, and then again an hour before your appointment with the dentist. This can enables our patients to be completely relaxed while still being alert and responsive.
In the office, the dentist may also use of nitrous oxide, otherwise known as “laughing gas.” Then, once a procedure is over, the sedation dentistry patient receives oxygen to eliminate the effects of these medications.
Here for You in Dental Emergencies
Our Fort Worth dentist realizes that dental emergencies happen all the time. Dr. Audu is ready to accommodate individuals who may have broken a tooth, are experiencing a painful abscessed tooth, or who simply have a persistent, nagging toothache. Dr. Audu will always try to accommodate last-minute appointments, same-day or next-day appointments, and walk-ins to quickly address the issue at hand.
