Do Your Gums Bleed?
If your gums bleed when flossing or brushing your teeth, it could be a sign of gum disease. Gum disease can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and heart attacks. Many patients may not realize that they could be developing a serious case of periodontitis, because they do not recognize the symptoms soon enough.
While bleeding gums can be preventable with good oral hygiene and routine dental visits, we offer many options that can remove the infection and effectively clean your teeth. Dr. Reece offers surgical and non-surgical treatment for bleeding gums, gingivitis, and advanced periodontitis. To learn about the treatments that we provide for bleeding gums, visit Bleeding gums.
Do You Have Crooked Teeth?
Crooked teeth can cause many issues, including bruxism (commonly referred to as teeth grinding), which can wear teeth down. Invisalign, porcelain veneers, or tooth bonding are all great options for straightening crooked teeth.
It may be difficult to clean between crooked or misaligned teeth. So it’s important to straighten them to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Tooth bonding and porcelain veneers can also brighten teeth while making them look more uniform. To learn about crooked teeth treatments, see Crooked teeth.
Do You Experience Frequent Headaches?
Do you suffer from chronic headaches? You may have a TMJ disorder, bruxism, or sleep apnea. Temporomandibular joint disorders can cause pain in the jaw joint and muscles. Some causes of TMJ disorders include stress, jaw misalignment, or tooth injury. We can help you address these dental problems with oral appliances.
Oral appliances are a great treatment option that can help take the pressure off of the jaw and keep teeth from grinding together. In addition, oral appliances open up the airway so tissues can’t collapse. To learn about our headache therapy services, visit Headaches.
Do You Have Missing Teeth?
Losing a tooth to injury or decay can be difficult. Having gaps in your smile may make you lose self-confidence. Missing teeth can also result in other problems, such as the shifting and overcrowding of teeth, difficulty biting and chewing, and increased tooth loss. However, dental implants, dental bridges, or full and partial dentures are great restorative options for patients with one or more missing teeth.
Just one lost tooth can leave you prone to tooth decay, shifting teeth, and facial sagging. A consultation can help you find the restorative dental treatment that’s right for you. To learn about our missing teeth treatments, visit Missing teeth.
Do You Grind Your Teeth?
Do you often find yourself clenching or grinding your teeth? You may have bruxism. Bruxism is a condition characterized by chronic teeth grinding or clenching and may be caused by stress, crooked teeth, and a misaligned bite. A dull, constant headache or sore jaw when you wake up is a telltale symptom of bruxism.
Millions of Americans clench or grind their teeth at night or during stressful situations. Because it often occurs during sleep, most people are unaware that they grind their teeth. In fact, many learn that they grind their teeth at night from a loved one. This can result in worn down or even broken teeth. Oral appliances can stop teeth grinding and protect teeth from further wear and tear. To learn about treatments for teeth grinding at our Mallard Creek dental office, visit Teeth grinding.
