Sensitive teeth can be caused by many factors including:
- Chipped or fractured teeth
- Teeth injury due to clenching or grinding
- Receding gums because of improper brushing or gum disease
Teeth grinding can be caused by a range of factors such as stress, sleep disorders, crooked or missing teeth, and an abnormal bite.
Bruxism can cause serious pain, headaches, and dangerous wear on the teeth. When it is severe, restorative dentistry techniques such as inlays or porcelain crowns are needed to rebuild damaged teeth. Therefore, it is important to seek treatment for bruxism early.
Once the causes of bruxism are determined, your dentist can develop a course of treatment which may include:
- Relaxation techniques if stress is at the root of the problem
- Physical therapy
- Muscle relaxants
- A plastic tooth guard to wear at night during sleep
Cosmetic dentistry can range from small modifications to full mouth reshaping, coloring and veneering. Veneering is one common form of cosmetic dentistry. They are not false teeth, just additions to current teeth. If a patient has misshapen, chipped or uneven teeth, applying a porcelain veneer over the tooth will rebuild it for the correct look.
Office teeth whitening procedures are performed with a specially formulated peroxide gel which allows oxygen to permeate your tooth enamel and lift stains. Your tooth enamel structure is not affected. The most common side effect is temporary tooth sensitivity.
Missing teeth is a common complaint. Our practice features several cutting-edge methods for filling gaps in a smile.
Patients today have many options for replacing missing teeth. Dental bridges, dentures, and dental implants all have their advantages and disadvantages. Modern cosmetic and restorative dentistry has generally come to favor dental implants since they look and function just like real teeth and require no special care.
If you have lost a tooth or several teeth, adjacent teeth can shift into the gap left by a lost tooth. In addition, a missing tooth can lead to bone loss, hygiene problems as well as difficulties with speaking and eating.
Porcelain veneers are the most conservative approach to changing the shape, size, or color of your teeth. They effectively mask discoloration, chipping, and gaps. They strengthen worn edges and create a bright, even-toothed smile.
Dental implants have the highest rate of success. They function just like real teeth, and, with proper care, can last a lifetime. Other advantages include that they never decay; they prevent the side effects of tooth loss (gum recession, bone loss, and speech difficulties); they restore proper chewing and the full strength of your bite. Since they prevent bone loss, they preserve the appearance of your face and prevent sunken cheeks.
Patients must have enough bone to support and stabilize the implant. Some individuals who have suffered bone loss as a result of gum disease or another condition may need bone grafting before a dental implant can be placed successfully.
