Many patients have concerns about their oral health but are not sure what the problem even is. Ignoring an oral health issue can lead to larger problems. That jaw pain may be something simple or temporary but should be evaluated — whether to simply get peace of mind, or the appropriate treatment as soon as possible.
Do you have trouble sleeping? It could be sleep apnea. Crooked teeth or bleeding gums can be related to indigestion issues or infections. At the Tyma Trachtenberg Center for Contemporary Dental Health, we offer personalized, comprehensive treatment plans that are tailored to meet the unique needs of each of our patients. We will take the time to discuss your symptoms, evaluate your teeth and gums, and create a customized treatment plan just for you.

Common Dental Concerns
Bleeding Gums: If your gums bleed when flossing or brushing your teeth, this could be a sign of developing gum disease. Many patients do not realize they can develop a serious case of periodontitis by not recognizing and treating the symptoms early enough.
While this condition can be preventable with good oral hygiene and routine dental visits, we offer multiple solutions that are able to remove the infection and effectively clean your teeth.
Crooked Teeth: Are you looking for a straighter smile? Porcelain veneers is a popular option for making teeth brighter and more uniform for a great smile. We can also talk to you about tooth bonding, which is an economical alternative to porcelain veneers that may be right for you. If it’s difficult to clean between crooked or misaligned teeth, we can discuss straightening them with clear aligners to prevent gum disease and tooth decay.
Missing Teeth: If you have lost one or multiple teeth, you are prone to tooth decay, shifting teeth, and facial sagging. A consultation can help you determine the restorative solution that’s right for you. Dental implants, a dental bridge, and full and partial dentures are some of the options that can help you achieve a fuller and healthier smile.
Sleep Apnea: Oral appliance therapy is an effective solution that we offer for mild and moderate cases of sleep apnea. Waking up during the middle of the night to catch your breath can be scary, and our dental experts are here to help. Snoring and reoccurring headaches can be signs of sleep apnea. If left untreated, this disorder can increase your risk of stroke, heart attack, and other heart problems. A proper diagnosis and the right treatment can help reduce your risk of developing more difficulties.
Teeth Grinding: Because it often occurs during sleep, most people are unaware that they grind their teeth. In fact, many learn that they grind their teeth at night from a loved one. However, a dull, constant headache or sore jaw when you wake up is a telltale symptom of bruxism, or teeth grinding.
Our team reviews your unique situation and oral health in order to offer the correct oral appliance to keep your teeth from touching. In addition, because an oral appliance acts like a mouthguard, it protects your teeth from future wear. Existing tooth damage from teeth grinding can also be addressed at this time.
