Common Gum Issues
Our full mouth approach starts with your gums. The health of your gums is not only a key factor for a healthy mouth, but also a healthy body. Healthy gum tissue should fit snugly around the tooth, be stippled not smooth, and should not show any signs of redness or bleeding.
If you are experiencing any of the following gum issues, it may be time for a visit.
How We Treat Gum Issues
Soft tissue gingival grafts work by re-covering tooth surfaces that have suffered from receding gum lines, which improves their appearance while also protecting the teeth.
Common Teeth Issues
A healthy body starts with your mouth. If teeth are painful, sensitive or achy it may prevent you from eating the healthy foods you need, and could be a sign of an underlying infection.
How We Treat Teeth Issues
Onlays cover the cusps and ridges (or biting edges) of teeth, rebuilding enamel that’s been broken or chipped. When it comes to recreating the shape of teeth that have been compromised, an onlay is similar traditional crown, except it does not cover the full tooth surface.
Bite & Jaw Joint
Common Bite & Jaw Joint Issues
The problem with bruxism is that it wears enamel against enamel — the hardest substance in your body — causing teeth to wear down, fracture, and even break apart existing dental work.
How We Treat Bite & Jaw Joint Issues
In dentistry, Botox can be an effective part of treatment plans for managing concerns such as gummy smiles and TMJ disorder. When utilized, Botox partially paralyzes/relaxes the muscle tissue in that area, causing it to relax and smooth out.
