Suffern dental care
Jaw pain can happen due to many different reasons. At Ramapo Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, our Suffern dental care
office treats jaw pain by finding out the cause of it before treating it and alleviating the patient of their symptoms. Jaw pain can happen because of a cavity, or because of TMJ disorder.
At White Smiles Dental Group, our dental office in Winnetka helps patients with common oral disorders such as TMJ. TMJ is a disorder of the jaw that can affect the jaw and the way people chew, causing headaches, pain and discomfort. TMJ can cause all sorts of problems and may coexist with other conditions such as fibromyalgia. Oral appliances are a popular way to help treat TMJ. Oral appliances, also called night guards, are plastic guards that fit over both the upper and lower teeth.
Night guards allow the patient to feel relief without the need for surgical intervention. Our dental office in Winnetka is experienced in handling TMJ disorders and creating orthodontic appliances for those who suffer from TMJ. Symptoms of TMJ may include jaw pain, stiffness in the jaw, lock jaw, or clicking and popping of the jaw. There are a lot of different treatments for TMJ depending on the severity of the condition. Self-care can be administered at home in between appointments. Applying ice packs and learning stress techniques can help ease symptoms of TMJ. Pain medication can also go a long way in alleviating symptoms.
Our dental office in Winnetka also specializes in other forms of dentistry such as cosmetic, general and restorative. Restorative dentistry involves the diagnosis and prevention of oral diseases, while cosmetic dentistry involves replacing missing teeth with implants or dentures. And our general dentistry services cover a wide range of procedures, from fillings, to cleanings, to root canal treatment. We also treat cavities, urging patients to come in once a year for their cleaning so that their teeth stay healthy & clean. Our Suffern dental care
fillings are made from quality composite materials, which match the teeth very well and naturally. We also provide cosmetic services like veneers, which are porcelain shells placed over the teeth to straighten and whiten them.
