Dentist in Independence, KY
Providing Dental Care for All Ages
At Independence Family Dentistry, we can address all of your family’s dental needs—general, restorative and cosmetic. Our staff uses the latest techniques and technology to provide efficient, safe, and comfortable dental care.
Prevention is our primary goal. With regular checkups—at least once every six months—we can check for problems before they become large and expensive to treat. During your appointment, Dr. Nakhla will discuss your current dental health, educate you about proper care and create custom treatment plans to ensure the continued health and beauty of your smile.
At Independence Family Dentistry, we offer two kinds of sedation dentistry to ease the anxiety that many experience when undergoing dental procedures. Nitrous oxide—also known as laughing gas—is administered during treatment, while oral conscious sedation comes in the form of a pill that can be taken prior to the appointment. These forms of sedation allow us to correct years of painful and embarrassing problems in as little as one visit, all while minimizing stress and encouraging patient relaxation.
Gum Disease Therapy
For patients who are in the early stages of gum disease, the professionals at Independence Family Dentistry can perform periodontal therapy. Periodontal therapy uses scaling and root planning to reduce inflammation, as well as remove bacterial debris below and above the gum line.
TMJ Assessments and Appliances
If your teeth are worn, you wake up with headaches or aching jaws, or your bite feels a bit “off”, you may have a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Dr. Nakhla can assess your jaw for issues, and create a custom device to alleviate the condition and your discomfort.
At Independence Family Dentistry, we have the ability to create custom athletic mouthguards. Mouthguards offer much needed dental protection for athletes who participate in full-contact sports.
