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 looked at — whether to simply get peace of mind, or the appropriate treatment as soon as possible.
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. Do you have crooked teeth, bleeding gums, or trouble sleeping due to sleep apnea?

Common Dental Concerns
Bleeding Gums: If your gums bleed when flossing between teeth or brushing your teeth, it could be a sign of developing gum disease. Many patients may not realize that they could be developing a serious case of periodontitis because they do not recognize the symptoms soon enough. While this condition can be preventable with good oral hygiene and routine dentist 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? Clear braces, porcelain veneers, and tooth bonding are all great cosmetic treatments for correcting crooked teeth. It may be difficult to clean between crooked or misaligned teeth, so it is important to straighten them with clear aligners to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Tooth bonding is an economical alternative to porcelain veneers. These solutions brighten teeth and make them look more uniform.
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 it acts like a mouthguard, an oral appliance protects teeth from future wear. Existing tooth damage from teeth grinding can also be addressed at this time.
