Adult Orthodontics

          Many adults who were not able to have their teeth straightened during their childhood are now taking a second look at the options available to straighten their teeth.  For these individuals, many dentists are now able to offer short-term orthodontics, such as Six Month Smiles, as a solution for adults who simply want their smile to appear straight and attractive.  Six Month Smiles is a revolutionary program which allows adults to wear braces for only around 6 months, and end up with a straight and esthetic smile.  

Why are teeth sensitive?

Tooth Sensitivity

          Do you find it difficult to sip a hot or very cold beverage or eat ice cream without experiencing significant pain? Why is it that certain teeth are most sensitive than others periodically? Tooth sensitivity can be more than a nuisance, it can seriously affect quality of life causing difficulty in eating and normal oral hygiene habits.

Dental Sealants

When I am practicing dentistry, especially on adults, most of the time I am working on a tooth (or teeth) that first had a problem during the patient’s childhood.  Frequently that tiny cavity that little Jimmy gets fixed at a young age will develop further problems and require more extensive treatment years later. This is why it is so very important to avoid getting cavities at a young age.

TMJ & Teeth Grinding

     Among the more common problems associated with the orofacial region is pain in the jaw joint which can lead to a whole host of problems.  A good portion of these problems originate with teeth grinding or bruxism.  Usually these TMJ issues can be treated very simply, or may actually dissipate on their own as your stress resolves.
