Have You Looked Into Implant Dentistry?

If you are currently living with an incomplete smile, you can be well aware of how much impact a tooth’s loss can have on your appearance, bite function, and general oral health. The problem can worsen as more teeth are lost, but a single gap is enough to create frustrating complications. Fortunately, when you take on the matter, you can see many benefits for your oral health and well-being. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we can recommend implant dentistry for patients who have experienced this problem. A dental implant set directly in the jawbone can provide permanent support for a replacement tooth. With that arrangement, you can enjoy better support for your bite, feel better about your smile, and generally enjoy better oral health! (more…)

Keeping Your Gums Healthy

What does your smile care routine involve, and is it really giving you the protection that you need? Your approach to both brushing and flossing should see you take on the potential buildup of plaque and food debris at the base of your teeth. When you neglect this area, you are more likely to experience problems with gingivitis that can turn into more serious troubles with gum disease! Our Temecula, CA dentist’s office is able to help patients who do show signs of poor periodontal health. Instead of providing a standard teeth cleaning that stops at the gum line, we can remove harmful microbes from the roots of your teeth in order to stop an infection from progressing. Remember that your routine preventive visits help you avoid future problems with gingivitis as well as dental decay, and should be part of your overall smile care regimen even when you feel you have no active problems to worry over.

Are TMJ Issues And Bruxism Linked?

If you have a tendency to grind and clench your teeth at night, you may have additional concerns over jaw pain and stiffness during the day, more frequent headaches, or even problems with your neck and shoulder.

Either one of these conditions can actually make a person more susceptible to the other. In other words, while you can experience difficulties with one of the other, many individuals will need assistance with both. At our Moreno Valley, CA dentist’s office, we can discuss services that are capable of helping you move past these problems to protect your smile and reduce your issues with daily aches and pains!
