A dental inlay is a type of conservative treatment made to fill tooth decay at the top of your back teeth but does not extend to the cusps or sharp tips of your tooth. It is a pre-molded filling that is more robust than the usual white filling material to withstand forces when you bite or chew.
Dental implants are an excellent solution to replace missing teeth because they look and feel like natural teeth. Implants are biocompatible titanium screws placed in your jawbones to replace the root of a lost tooth and topped with a porcelain crown or denture. They are permanent and stable because they fuse with the bone and don’t rely on adjacent teeth for support. Implants can replace a single tooth or one entire arch with just four implants. Unlike removable dentures, you can enjoy speaking and eating without being self-conscious that something might fall off. And the best part? Since the implant fuses with your bone, it stimulates bone growth and helps you avoid bone loss, avoiding losing more teeth.
If you are suffering from clenching or grinding, Botox can help relax your tense jaw muscles and provide relief from pain. Botox is used not only as a beauty-enhancing product – but also to reduce muscle contractions, relaxing the muscles around your jaw. There is no downtime after receiving your TMJ Botox injections, and the treatment will last about 3-4 months.
According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, 26 percent of adults between the ages of 30 and 70 years have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening sleep disorder. It is when the body stops breathing for a few seconds during sleep. People with sleep apnea usually do not remember waking up during the night but experience symptoms such as:
- Waking up tired
- Morning headaches
- Waking up with a dry mouth or throat
If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea, a dental appliance may be helpful to reposition the lower jaw and tongue to improve breathing while you sleep. We can work closely with your physician to implement sleep apnea therapy.
Veneers improve the shape, size, and color of teeth. Veneers are used to repair teeth that are chipped, fractured, discolored, have an uneven shape, or have excessive gaps. To achieve the straight, bright smile you have always wanted with veneers, our dentists will shape your teeth and bond thin shell-like coverings to the front of your teeth. It is non-invasive, and we ensure to remove a very minimal amount of tooth structure to prepare teeth prior to bonding the veneers. We aim to produce a smile transformation that looks as natural as possible.
