At Integrative Dental Arts we believe in the mouth-body connection. By that, we subscribe to the theory that maintaining good overall health is significantly influenced by one’s oral health. However, most Americans do not keep a regular recommended schedule of twice-yearly visits to their dentist. Whether you are looking for a new dentist after neglecting professional oral health care, or you have just moved to the Agoura Hills area, choosing the right dentist to care for you and your family is a big decision. Integrative Dental Arts compiled this guide on how to find the best dentist in Agoura Hills.

Does the dentist perform cosmetic procedures?

Are you unhappy with the way your smile looks? If so you’re not alone. However, cosmetic dentistry is a specialization of dental science that is dedicated to improving the appearance of the teeth and mouth. At Integrative Dental Arts, our dentists in Westlake Village actually emphasize cosmetic treatments, which often produce teeth that function on a higher level in addition to being more aesthetically pleasing. Dr. Kathleen Carson and Dr. Cristina Markiewicz continue to pursue continuing education on the latest techniques in cosmetic dentistry, and our facility includes some of the latest technological advances—making cosmetic procedures more convenient and comfortable than ever. Our range of cosmetic services includes porcelain veneers, in-office or at-home teeth whitening procedures, dental bonding, crowns, gum recontouring, and much more.

Is sedation dentistry offered?

Most people feel some degree of nervousness when they go to the dentist, but for many individuals, these feelings are heightened to anxiety or even outright fear just over the thought of receiving dental care. This is a condition called dental anxiety, and it affects millions of Americans—many of whom refrain from going to the dentist altogether in order to avoid facing these fears. Ironically, this also means that those who suffer from dental anxiety often are in the greatest need of professional oral health care. Integrative Dental Arts can help our patients in Agoura Hills and Westlake Village overcome their dental anxiety, or any other pre-existing condition that could make it difficult to receive dental care, by offering sedation dentistry services. Using oral medication that has been proven safe and effective, our sedation method keeps you in a relaxed, drowsy state while dental work takes place. You will need to arrange transportation to and from your appointment. 

Be sure to ask us about NuCalm, the medication-free method of relaxation to reduce your anxiety while at the dentist.
