If you wake up with a sore jaw, you’re likely grinding or clenching during the night. You can’t prevent yourself from doing it -- after all, you’re asleep! -- but you can ease the impact on your teeth by wearing a custom night guard. Ask us about how this small, comfortable guard protects your teeth from the effects of grinding or clenching.

Many people are nervous about dental appointments because of a bad experience they had once, perhaps as a child. It’s important not to let those anxieties get in the way of regular visits, or else your oral hygiene will suffer. Be honest with us about how you feel, and we’ll be sure to help you feel more comfortable.

You are what you eat, and too much sugar means your teeth will suffer the consequences. One of the most common problems in young children is that they’re drinking too much juice -- especially if they’re sipping it throughout the day. Natural sugar is still sugar, which leads to tooth decay.

Grinding your teeth while you sleep is annoying for your spouse -- it sounds like you’re chewing on broken glass! But it’s also terrible for your smile, and can lead to chipping or even losing teeth. Talk to us if you grind your teeth or clench your jaw while you’re sleeping. We can make a custom night guard to protect your teeth all night long.

We regularly meet with parents who are shocked their young children have cavities, and often it’s not because of a lack of brushing or flossing: it’s what those children are eating and drinking. Too much sugar leads to tooth decay, and an unhealthy diet lacking nutrients puts them at a higher risk for gum disease. Talk to us today if you’re concerned about your child’s diet.

Any time you have a filling that feels cracked, loose or just plain uncomfortable, please give us a call. It may need to be repaired or replaced, and it’s always a good idea to get it checked out quickly.

How often do you replace your toothbrush? We recommend using a new one every 3 to 4 months to stay healthy, because germs can linger in those bristles!

We may recommend general anesthesia for a particular dental procedure because it can help in several different ways. It’s useful if a patient is especially anxious about the treatment, or if they find it difficult to hold their mouth open for a long time. It also allows us to complete more complex work than might normally take several appointments.
