Spanish Trails Dentist in Las Vegas
Whether you’ve been living in Spanish Trails for some time, or you’ve recently moved to the community, Dr. Michael G. Hollingshead and his team would like to say, “Welcome!” Dr. Hollingshead is a general dentist serving Spanish Trail in Las Vegas. Together with his staff of dental hygienists and dental assistants he provides a variety of general dentistry services to patients of all ages from throughout Las Vegas and the surrounding communities.
As a general dentist, Dr. Hollingshead is dedicated to helping each one of his patients enjoy a lifetime of good oral health. Selecting from our comprehensive list of general and preventive dentistry treatments, we can combine procedures to match your unique needs. Of course, the foundation of dental health care is the routine checkup. Scheduled every six months, these appointments allow us to thoroughly clean your teeth and examine your oral cavity for any problems, such as tooth decay, periodontal disease or oral cancer. If necessary, we’ll also take digital x-rays to uncover any troubles that might not be visible during the exam.
Spanish Trails General Dentist Serving You
A checkup is also the perfect time for you to mention anything that concerns you about your oral health or even your general health. If you have experienced any tooth pain, then Dr. Hollingshead will want to check for signs of tooth decay or even infection. If found, he will be able to recommend the appropriate restorative treatment.
Having trouble sleeping at night and feeling tired during the day? The problem may be snoring or sleep apnea, a chronic condition during which breathing pauses multiple times during the night. We can prescribe a custom snoreguard, which is an oral appliance that shifts your lower jaw slightly forward in order to open your airway and provide an unobstructed pathway for breathing. Similarly, a nightguard can be worn if we find that your teeth are becoming worn due to nighttime teeth grinding and clenching. This habit can also be a contributing factor of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction, which can cause jaw, head and neck pain.
Regardless of the general dentistry procedure you need to maintain your healthy smile, Dr. Hollingshead approaches everyone with a caring manner and gentle touch. He and his team want you to be completely comfortable during your treatment. In addition to headphones for calming music, we also offer two kinds of sedation dentistry for our patients who experience dental anxiety or fear. With nitrous oxide, you calmly breathe in a measured mix of this gas and oxygen. As you inhale, your fears and worries melt away. For patients with more severe anxiety, or for those who need more lengthy treatment, there is IV sedation. In either case, the goal is to make you comfortable so we can perform the dental care you need.
