Dental Implants

If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants may be the perfect solution for you. Dental implants are natural-looking and are permanently anchored into the patient’s jawbone. It is important to replace missing teeth, because if left with gaps your teeth can shift and cause a variety of dental problems. When your dental implants are placed, your jaw will bond and attach to the implant. To see if you’re a candidate for dental implants, call us today and make an appointment!

Dentures and Partial Dentures

Dentures are a removable appliance for those missing teeth and surrounding tissue. With new advances that have been made, dentures have become more comfortable and durable than ever before. With a variety of options and materials, dentures can be affordable and a great solution for one or more missing teeth.

TMJ Dysfunction

TMD (Temporomandiblular Joint Dysfunction) can occur in a variety of ways. Some symptoms to be aware of include: headaches, sore jaw, facial pain, earache, loose teeth, fractured teeth, and neck and shoulder pain.

It has been found that there is usually more than 1 factor responsible for TMJ disorders. Stress, jaw clenching, improper bite, and trauma are usually related to the problem. Thankfully there are a range of treatments that are tailored to the individual. These treatments include behavioral changes, physical therapy, custom appliances to relieve pressure from grinding, and some mild medications.

To discuss your treatment options for TMD, call us today!
