Can You Help With Relieving Dental Anxiety?
If you suffer from dental anxiety, we would be glad to help you through your fear. Our staff is fully trained to offer compassionate and gentle care to each patient, helping ensure a relaxing visit you will feel good about. If you have special concerns or requests, we’ll be glad to accommodate you if at all possible.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Unlike traditional braces that use metal brackets, bands, and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic teeth aligners to straighten your teeth. You simply slide the aligners over your teeth and wear them for at least 20-22 hours a day. You can freely remove aligners for eating, brushing, or a special occasion, so long as you put them back in when you’re done.
What Are Gum Disease Symptoms?
You may not see the signs of gum disease on your own until its advanced stages, which is why it is often referred to as a silent killer. It’s also why your routine dental exams are so important. The earlier you spot periodontal infection, the easier it is to manage and, in many cases, reverse. Common symptoms to look for include red, swollen, tender, or bleeding gums, loose teeth, and persistent bad breath.
Does TMJ Treatment Work?
TMJ problems typically won’t go away without treatment. TMJ pain is usually caused when the joints in your jaw become inflamed. This commonly occurs because of two habits that put your jaw under pressure: clenching and teeth grinding. We can make a custom mouthguard for you that will stop these behaviors so that your jaw can heal.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small titanium posts placed in your jaw to act as artificial teeth roots. They are an ideal way to replace missing teeth because the implant fuses with your jawbone to form a base for new teeth. Implants also help keep your jawbone healthy by stimulating the growth of new bone.
