Common dental concerns that we treat in our office include:

Missing Teeth

Missing teeth cause a wide range of issues within your smile. Not only do they cause cosmetic concerns but they also increase your risk for gum disease progression and tooth decay development. Additionally, missing teeth can lead to an increased occurrence of jaw pain, tension headaches, and earaches. This is because your dental structures were designed to work together when performing daily tasks like chewing or speaking. When you are missing one or more teeth, your other dental structures must compensate for the damage. This is why we recommend pursuing tooth replacement options sooner rather than later.

Discolored Teeth

Nothing ages your smile faster than stained, discolored, or yellowed teeth. Tooth discoloration is a common occurrence because many popular foods and beverages contain staining agents that attach to your dental structures. When these staining agents are allowed to remain on your dental structures, they tarnish the brightness of your smile and cause discoloration. To treat discolored teeth, our office offers in-office as well as take-home whitening treatments so that you can brighten your smile when it is most convenient for you.

Slipping Dentures

Many patients who are missing a full arch of teeth utilize dentures or partials. However, a common complaint with denture wearers is slipping dentures. Slipping dentures occur because the set of prosthetic teeth does not have anything to attach itself to within your mouth. To combat slipping dentures, our doctors provide implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures utilize the support of strategically places dental implants to hold your dentures in place while in use. This reduces the occurrence of denture slippage and allows you to enjoy more functionality.

Bleeding Gums

Bleeding gums are the first sign of gum disease progression. If you notice a small amount of blood in the sink following brushing or flossing, this is a good sign that you need to schedule your next preventative care appointment. Our team will remove any plaque or tartar surrounding your gum line to prevent bleeding gums from progressing to late-stage gum disease. If your gum disease has already progressed, we can also offer periodontal disease treatment options to restore your soft tissues.
