Extra Miles for Great Smiles in El Salvador

Brighten your smile and help us brighten the smiles and lift the spirits of needy people in El Salvador on Friday, October 3, 9am-8pm in our Indianapolis dental office at 7218 US 31 S, Indianapolis, IN, 46227. In an effort to help fund our mission trip, Dr. Reese and our team will be volunteering time and reducing our fees for this one-day-only and donating all fees for “Extra Miles for Great Smiles in El Salvador”.

The money received will go toward supplies and travel expenses. Please come and help us with our mission. We will provide our same “quality” services at a reduced rate for this one day. You can get a cleaning ($50), sealants ($35), one filling ($75 - $175) and one extraction ($100-$200), costs dependent upon treatment needed. Whitening strips will be available for $39. Due to the extensive nature of chair time and laboratory costs we cannot do crowns, dentures, partials or sedation appointments.

There will be a limited number of appointments available. Call and schedule your treatment by calling us at 317.882.0228.

We are also collecting flip flops (sandals) and used eye glasses to take with us to share with these people. If you don’t need treatment and are interested in donating, stop by and bring us some flip flops or used eye glasses and say hello!

Please pass along this information to whomever you know may need our services here and help our cause. There is no requirement to be an existing patient of record. We are extending this to the entire community so please pass along this information and make others aware of our ambitions!!

Due to the our desire of helping as many people as possible in this one day format, we have to limit our services and please don't expect the same 'timely' schedule that we try to adhere to in our normal schedule.

Thanks for passing this along!!

Donations will be greatly appreciated and accepted!!!

How to Have A Comfortable Dental Visit

A trip to the dentist’s office can be intimidating for first-timers and downright terrifying for many. Some people even avoid going to the dentist because of fear. In fact, many people suffer from dental phobia that they don’t go until the worst dental problems happen. Since poor oral health care can lead to worse health problems like diabetes and heart disease, it is important that people overcome their fear. Fortunately, there are many options available to help ensure a patient has a comfortable dental visit and an easier, pain-free dental experience. How To Have A Comfortable Dentist Visit

The Indianapolis Center of Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry has taken great effort to not only prioritize comfort and relaxation to their patients but to offer spa-like services, eliminating smells associated to dental offices with the use of fragrant oils. You can request a moisturizing oil massage for your hands to help calm your nerves and ask for BOSE headphones to reduce noise during treatments. They even have converted their working environment into a spa-like atmosphere complete with a coffee and juice bar for drinks. Kids can be entertained in a waiting room turned play area with toys and games. They can even watch movies!

They see to it that they do not only look out for their patients’ teeth and mouth but care for their whole body and well being. This means they do holistic treatments free from fluoride and mercury.

In addition to holistic treatments, they offer sedation dentistry as well.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry makes use of sedative drugs in the form of tranquilizers, anti-anxiety medications, IV drugs and nitrous oxide to put a patient in deep sleep during dental treatments. Everything from crowns, fillings, root canals, teeth extraction and even tooth cleanings are done while a patient is asleep! This can help patients overcome their fears and get procedures done faster.

IV Sedation

A combination of a sedative and narcotic drug is administered intravenously (through an IV line). Do not worry – this is safe and its effectiveness will even let you look forward to working with your dentist again!

Nitrous Oxide

Commonly known as laughing gas, this is commonly used in pediatric dentistry to keep children still. The advantage of using nitrous oxide is that since you inhale it, its effect is immediately reversed once you stop inhaling. You can return home or go to work without side effects. Yes – you can even drive!

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is the most popular form of sedation technique used in dentistry. It combines nitrous oxide with a pill that works like Valium. This combination makes a patient drowsy and helps them forget what happened during a procedure.

A licensed dentist like Dr. Reese of the Indianapolis Center of Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry can administer a sedative through intravenous injection. You can discuss with him what sedation technique would work best for you and he will be able to guide you on what would be the method that you will be most comfortable in.
