  • What Are Smile Makeovers?

    Although smile makeovers are often thought of as a set of cosmetic procedures that are designed simply to make a smile look better, they are actually more than that.

  • Should You See Your Dentist for TMJ Pain Treatment?

    TMJ pain, or temporomandibular pain, is pain that occurs in the jaw area at the joint where the jawbone is connected to the skull. This is the joint that enables the mouth to open and close, and it is used in chewing and speaking. TMJ pain can be caused by teeth grinding, by trauma to the jaw, by arthritis, or by other factors. Dentists are trained to diagnose and treat TMJ pain and will generally use non-invasive methods first to try to remedy this problem. If you have clicking or popping sound....

    Digital dental x-rays are important diagnostic tools in dentistry. They enable dentists to locate cavities as well as gum disease, tumors, and abnormalities of the jaw and bite. Digital imaging is the modern way to do dental x-rays, using special sensors that eliminate the need for film. This technique exposes the patient to less radiation than the older film method, and it's easy for the dentist to enlarge the images for more detailed examination. It's important to have dental imaging regularly....

Digital intraoral imaging can diagnose a cracked tooth or gum disease and can let the dentist show you the image of your own teeth on a screen so you can see what's wrong! Since the images are on computer, they can also be sent to ....

  • What Are Modern Implants?

    Dental implants have opened up a whole new world in dentistry and, over the years, made it possible to replace missing teeth and create strong supports for dental crowns and dentures. These implants are small metal screws, usually made of titanium, that are placed into the jawbone to hold a new crown or tooth. These are done in stages, with the first stage involving any necessary bone grafting to create adequate bone for support. Then, the implant is placed, and must be allowed to fuse with the ....
