Additonal Dental Services
Your wisdom teeth are the third molars that come in between the ages of 17 and 25. While some people are able to keep their wisdom teeth, most need them extracted to prevent crowding. Our dentists may recommend wisdom teeth removal if they notice your third molars are coming in at an angle.
An overbite or underbite can lead to pain while chewing, uneven wear of tooth enamel, and even TMJ disorder. Fortunately, our dentists are able to perform a Tekscan™ bite adjustment to determine the best way to align your teeth and jaws.
Occlusion refers to the relationship between your upper and lower teeth while chewing or resting. During an occlusal adjustment, your dentist will be able to smooth out the tiny imperfections on the surface of your teeth that prevent you from biting down without pain or discomfort.
Do you have a dental phobia? Don’t wait until you have an unbearable toothache before scheduling an appointment. Sedation dentistry can help you relax in the dentist’s chair so you can get the dental care you need for a healthy smile.
During IV sedation dentistry, we insert an IV line into a vein in the crook of your arm. The IV line provides a steady flow of medication that ensures your relaxed state for the entire procedure. Since the medication is delivered intravenously, your dentist will be able to adjust the level of sedation as needed.
Do you grind your teeth at night? If so, you’ll want to schedule an appointment with your dentist to discuss getting a mouth guard for teeth grinding. A night guard is a removable oral appliance that forms a protective barrier between your upper and lower teeth while you sleep.
Whether you need dental implant surgery or wisdom tooth extraction, you can count on our expertise. Dental surgery is often a last resort to protect your oral health when all other methods have failed. For example, we may recommend surgical tooth extraction if your tooth is stuck beneath your gums.
If you consistently wake up with jaw pain, you’ll want to ask your dentist to examine your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The TMJ is a hinge connecting your lower jaw to your skull. However, this hinge can weaken when you clench or grind your teeth at night.
Dental pulp is the living tissue inside your tooth. Once a cavity is deep enough to penetrate the inside of your tooth, you’ll need root canal treatment. The sooner you seek emergency dental care, the more likely we’ll be able to save your tooth and avoid extraction.
Does your snoring keep your partner up at night? Our sleep apnea dentists can create a removable oral appliance for you to wear at night. A sleep apnea mouth guard repositions your lower jaw and tongue, keeping your airway clear while you sleep.
While generic mouth guards are sold in sporting good stores, they don’t offer the same level of protection or comfort as a custom mouth guard. A sports mouth guard from your dentist will allow you to breathe, speak, and drink properly so you can focus on the game.
Your child’s dentist will use a laser to free the tongue from being tethered to the bottom of your child’s mouth. Many parents prefer tongue-tie laser surgery to scissors because it reduces pain, bleeding, and recovery time.
Don’t ignore a toothache. Tooth pain is your body’s way of letting you know something is wrong. Call our office as soon as possible if you need emergency dental care. Our emergency dentists will do everything in their power to save a tooth.
