Orthodontics

So you have decided you want orthodontics. We salute you. Orthodontics is the best way to increase self-esteem by improving your appearance. When you have straight teeth, you increase the amount of smiling. And smiling improves everything, including your outlook on the world.

Orthodontics decreases the chances of developing gum disease by making brushing easier. Crooked overlapping teeth are more difficult to clean and, in turn, can cause problems with gum tissues. Orthodontics can also improve speech impediments caused by misaligned teeth. Beyond that, straighter teeth reduce jaw pain brought on by TMJ disorder.

Family Dentist

One of the significant benefits of family dentistry over pediatric dentistry is that a family dentist treats all ages. They stick with you long-term your whole life and become a dental home for the entire family. From the onset of your child's first tooth to your parents transitioning into dentures, there is no age limit to who family dentists can treat.

Having dentists you love and have a history with is vital for you and your family. Having your checkups and teeth cleaned by familiar faces helps everyone feel more comfortable and relaxed, reducing dental anxiety. And let's be honest, it is way more convenient to schedule the whole family's checkups on the same day.

But beyond that, and probably the most important, it is easier for your dentist to spot gum problems and tooth decay trends that run in the family. Preventative treatments can help the younger generations avoid some dental issues that might be hereditary. To learn more about family dentistry click here.

Botox

Botox, short for "botulinum toxin," and filler treatments are trendy and effective for aesthetic reasons, usually eliminating wrinkles and fine lines. Many people use BOTOX injections to create a younger look and increase their overall confidence.  

But did you know that Botox is also used to treat TMJ problems and bruxism?  

  • TMJ - jaw problems in the temporomandibular joint, including clicking or popping in the jaw and difficulty opening and closing your mouth.
  • Bruxism - when you clench or grind your teeth, usually caused by stress, snoring, or sleep apnea.

Both TMJ disorders and bruxism can cause patients unnecessary pain, tooth damage, and sensitivity when left untreated. Damage to the teeth, jaw soreness, ear and facial pain, and headaches are just a few symptoms. Click here for more info. BOTOX or a filler is injected into the painful problem areas to provide relaxation and relief for treatment.
