It’s a common dilemma: You deal with headaches, you hope they’ll go away, they continue to occur, and you find yourself unsure about what to do. One of the things you might not consider is coming in for dental care. Didn’t know that relief for head pain could be found at a dental practice? As a matter of fact, this is frequently a very beneficial (if not comprehensive) way to solve your problem. Allow us to share more, so you feel fully educated regarding how your smile may come into play (and what to do next).
Have you heard mention of orthotropics, which focuses on guiding your children’s teeth into place even before they have lost all of their baby teeth? Before you ignore this area of care and assume it’s unnecessary (and decide you’ll wait until your kids are teens), think again! Become more familiar with how early care can actually make any necessary future treatment much easier (and why your child may not end up needing it at all).
Do you and your loved ones all pack in tight every year when you hang out for the holidays, so you can have someone snap a photo? Do you cringe at the thought of seeing yourself once the photos are sent out because you worry your smile might not look so hot? While this is definitely a good reason to consider coming in to see us for cosmetic care soon, we also suggest you make some choices that will help you look just gorgeous for this year’s picture. Though they may be simple, they can make quite a difference in the final result.
Do you know about chips? Are you certain about treating chipped teeth? Do you know if this is something that can affect your smile health or if it’s just a matter of esthetic details?

Let our quiz guide you (and remember, it’s always easy and smart to call us for a visit).
Are you noticing that you’ve been grinding your teeth lately? Do you do this in your sleep and you would never have known had your significant other not mentioned it? Maybe you don’t clench on purpose but you’re aware that it’s happening, particularly when you’re stressed. Whatever the case, if you are dealing with bruxism disorder, then you need treatment (and suggestions) to address the problem and keep symptoms from worsening. Let’s talk about how we can help you!
What’s the problem with the way your smile looks? If your immediate response includes something along the lines of “there are spaces in my smile!” then this is certainly something we have heard before. Did you know that gaps in your grin can be more than just an eyesore? You’ve probably noticed that they can trap food (or grab your soft tissue), so closing them certainly provides you with many benefits. How to do that you may wonder to yourself? Not a problem. Consider cosmetic treatment options.
Of course, with just about anything these days, there appears to be a searchable, do-it-yourself (DIY) option for something you need to accomplish. Whether it’s home improvement, a makeup look, or otherwise, you’ll find it on the internet. While there are some DIY techniques that can be extremely helpful, we never suggest this for your smile care. We strongly encourage you to leave the dentistry to us! Need something? Just give us a call.
What you want from your toothpaste is simple. You want it to taste good and you want it to work, so you know the time you spend on dental care at home every day is actually paying off!

What’s there to learn about electric toothbrushes that might help you decide one way or the other whether this dental hygiene appliance is right for you?

Of course, there’s always time during a visit to gain additional knowledge, as well.
Do you know what you can do on a daily basis to brighten up your smile? Are you clear regarding what does work and what does not work, when what you want is some truly remarkable improvement when it comes to the shade of your teeth?
