Common Dental Concerns
If your gums bleed after brushing and flossing, you may have gingivitis. Gingivitis, or gum inflammation, is a precursor to periodontitis, or gum disease. Gingivitis may be easily treated with antibacterial rinses and increased oral hygiene, but gum disease may require more complex care. If you notice red, swollen, or bleeding gums, please call our office. We will help you determine which treatments can target your gum problems.
Do you suffer from chronic jaw pain? You may have bruxism. Bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding, is a condition caused by crooked teeth, a misaligned bite, or stress and anxiety. Many people may not realize they are grinding their teeth because bruxism often occurs unconsciously during sleep. However, with nightguards, patients with mild to moderate bruxism can alleviate their pain and prevent further wear and tear to their teeth.
Patients who want a straighter and more balanced smile benefit from Invisalign, porcelain veneers, and tooth bonding. Invisalign clear aligners gradually straighten teeth and allow patients to enjoy the foods they like without dietary restrictions. These clear aligners are also more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Porcelain veneers and tooth bonding are used to cover teeth slightly crooked teeth for a more balanced look. These cosmetic dental treatments are made of materials such as ceramic that easily blend in with natural teeth.
Chronic headaches can be a side effect of TMJ disorders and bruxism, which can be cared for at Rebol Family Dentistry. Both of these conditions can be treated with night mouthguards or jaw exercises to keep teeth from grinding together, prevent further tooth damage, and relieve headaches. Sometimes, orthodontics like Invisalign may also be used to straighten crooked teeth. Crooked teeth or misalignment are common contributing factors to disorders such as TMJ and bruxism. A more balanced bite can relieve muscle tension, jaw problems, and headaches.
Patients with one or more missing teeth benefit from our restorative dental treatments. Replacing missing teeth can help prevent increased dental problems and improve facial and oral aesthetics. If teeth are not replaced soon enough, multiple oral health problems can occur such as bone loss, tooth decay, speech issues, crooked teeth, shifting teeth, overcrowding, difficulty chewing, and facial sagging. Dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures are durable and long-lasting replacements. When restorations are secured with implants, they last longer and retain more of the natural bone structure. Our dentists will help you find the best implant-supported restoration to replace your missing teeth at the root.
