At Kenneth W. Baker, DDS and Associates, we know you likely have questions about our dental services, and we’re happy to answer them! Call us at (956) 232-8029 or visit our McAllen, TX dentist office at 5000 N. 10th Street. We’ve answered some questions we hear often here, so you also may be able to find your answer below.
Can I Get Dental Implants?
You more than likely can get dental implants. Dr. Kenneth Baker will assess you using high-tech tools like 3D imaging. Some people lack a strong enough jaw to support implants. If you’re one of them, Dr. Baker may recommend a bone graft or other oral surgery procedure. He may also be able to use mini dental implants. Because they are smaller, they can sometimes be used in cases where full-size implants aren’t an option.
Can I Get Orthodontic Treatment?
We give you several orthodontics options because we want to ensure you can get the one that is perfect for your smile. Like conventional braces, FASTBRACES® use metal wires and brackets to straighten your teeth. But they work much faster than traditional braces, thanks to their patented design and special materials. If you want a more discreet method of straightening teeth, you can choose from several systems that use clear plastic aligners: Invisalign, Simpli5, or Red, White and Blue.
Do You Offer Dental Sedation?
Because we know some people suffer from dental anxiety, we offer two kinds of safe dental sedation: an oral sedative and IV sedation. We’ll review your medical history and discuss any concerns you may have so we can help you select the type of sedation that is best for your situation. Either way, sedation will ease your anxiety and keep you relaxed, especially if you need to undergo long or complex treatments. Dr. Baker is a member of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology.
