Advanced dentistry services available in Owensboro

Categories: Owensboro Dentist

Just about any dental practice can provide cleanings, examine your teeth, take x-rays, and perform routine restorative dentistry. If you take good care of your teeth and have a bit of luck, you may never need more care than that. But life isn’t usually that simple. Oral problems, accidents, and emergencies can happen.

Become a patient of Thompson & Frey Cosmetic & Family Dentistry and you’ll be in good hands with their wide range of dentistry services. Dr. David Thompson and Dr. Vicki Frey have been treating families in the Owensboro area since 1986. Their care goes beyond routine with advanced services such as:

Sedation dentistry. Dental anxiety is real. It causes many people to avoid regular appointments, and keeps them from enjoying good oral and overall wellness. Dr. Thompson and Dr. Frey offer the comfort of nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. It allows you to relax comfortably and safely, while we take care of your dental work. Sedation dentistry is also an excellent solution for physically challenged patients or those who need extensive treatment with the convenience of one appointment.

Adult orthodontic alternatives. Invisalign straightens mild to moderate misalignment with transparent aligner trays. As you progress through a series of computer-designed custom aligners, gentle pressure is applied to move teeth into proper position in about 18 months. Invisalign is removable, so you are able to eat a nutritious diet and keep teeth clean while you straighten.

We also offer Six Month Smiles for cosmetic straightening. These discreet tooth-colored brackets and wires correct crooked, crowded, or unevenly-spaced teeth. Six Month Smiles is fast because a special type of wire applies low force, focused on the teeth that are seen when you speak or smile.

Sleep apnea and snoring. Snoring interrupts your rest and that of your whole family. It can also be a symptom of a more serious health condition called obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA. Conventional treatment for OSA involves wearing a facemask while a bulky, noisy machine holds your airway open with a continuous flow of air.

Dr. Thompson and Dr. Frey offer an effective, comfortable alternative – oral appliance therapy. This small mouthpiece holds the jaw open and slightly forward to keep your airway clear.
