Are you one of the millions of people who get nervous when they think about visiting the dentist? Maybe you associate a trip to the dentist with feelings of anxiety, discomfort, even fear! If that describes you, rest assured that your visit to the dentist can be a relaxed, comfortable, and pain-free experience.
At Dr. Bill Linger's dental office in Charlotte, NC, you will find a one stop solution for all your dental needs, and without the stress that can come from visiting other practices.
What are some services that Dr. Linger offers? First of all, he and his staff offer regular dental cleaning, which is so important to the health of your teeth. Plaque and tartar can build up over time, and lead to gum disease and other problems. And of course cavities can be very painful and costly. A visit to Dr. Linger's office every six months for a cleaning can prevent many problems, and keep your mouth healthy.
What if you've let your regular cleaning visits slide a little bit, and now you are dealing with a cavity or other issue? Dr. Linger can help you in that case as well. He offers services such as tooth fillings, root canals, and sealants; and with any procedure, he provides you options designed to keep you as comfortable as possible, such as local anesthesia, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or sedation.
He also provides services related to dental implant surgery. Few dentists are able to perform dental implant microsurgery, but Dr. Linger is one of the few who proudly offers this option to his clients.
This is a less invasive procedure than traditional implant surgery, and uses small titanium posts as a foundation for replacement teeth. The replacement teeth feel and look natural, so that you can get back to your life with a fearless smile and no embarrassment.
Dr. Linger also provides more specialized services, such as gum recession treatment using the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique. This technologically advanced, state of the art procedure bypasses the need for gum grafting, which is often a long and painful process.
Instead, this technique, with minimal invasiveness, stretches gum tissue that is already present back over the teeth in question. Dr. Linger has been trained in this technique, and is happy to explain the details and benefits of this cutting-edge procedure to his clients.
Dr. Linger's office also is a one stop location for cosmetic dentistry. We all know the importance of a white, bright smile in our social lives. Dr. Linger provides high-tech services that can help improve your smile in a short time, such as porcelain veneers, Invisalign clear braces, teeth whitening trays, and cosmetic dentures.
These procedures and services are designed to be as pain-free and comfortable as possible, so that you can get that perfect, bright smile you've always wanted with the least amount of discomfort and inconvenience to you!
As part of Dr. Linger's mission to provide stress-free care for his patients, he is a proponent of sedation dentistry. This does not necessarily mean you will be unconscious; Dr. Linger tailors the level of sedation according to your preference.
The sedation can range from light, where relaxed patients are completely aware of their surroundings, to general anesthesia, which allows you to be fully unconscious as any procedures are performed.
Dr. Linger is a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry, a distinction that less than 1% of dentists have been able to achieve. He uses state of the art equipment and surgical techniques to provide the highest quality of care available. He is passionate about his work, and strongly believes in the comfort and well-being of each one of his patients. Contact his office today for more information.
