It is recommended that you visit the dentist every six months for screenings, cleanings, and other preventive care. Our advanced tools and techniques can detect potential oral health issues in their very earliest stages, helping to ensure that your smile remains in good shape for many years to come.
It is not uncommon for patients to experience anxiety when undergoing a dental procedure or to have an extreme sensitivity to dental treatment. We want to make our patients feel comfortable during treatment and feel that they never need to postpone or ignore the treatments they need. We offer both oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide sedation dentistry to help anxious or sensitive patients reach a state of relaxation during treatment.
If you find yourself feeling exhausted after a full night's rest, you may be suffering from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is the brief interruption of sleep hundreds of times over the course of a night, triggered by obstructions to the airway. We offer at-home sleep studies that can help us determine whether you are experiencing sleep apnea. We offer treatments to help patients achieve the rest they need, and can refer patients with severe sleep apnea to specialists.
Dr. Tim Kelly is an expert in treating TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder, a condition resulting in headaches, facial pain, tooth wear, and other symptoms triggered by jaw misalignment. He can conduct diagnostic procedures to pinpoint the misalignment in your bite, and then perform the restorative treatments needed to achieve balance between the upper and lower teeth. These treatments can include dental implants, crowns, partial dentures (bridges), orthodontics, and more. Dr. Kelly excels in achieving long-term results for patients suffering from TMJ Disorder.
Your dental health is a valuable asset. Entrusting your dental health to a trusted professional is one of the wisest investments you can make. Contact our Albuquerque office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kelly.
