What are dental implants and where to get them?

Dental implants are the most durable and functional tooth replacement option available today. The implant is comprised of a titanium post that serves as the root of your replacement tooth, a porcelain crown, and an abutment that attaches the crown to the implant. With proper oral care, a dental implant can replace a natural tooth for a lifetime.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Convenience. Once the implant is placed, it serves all the functions of a natural tooth. No eating restrictions or speaking impediments.
  • Oral health. With other tooth replacement options, the bone where the root used to be may deteriorate over time, causing neighboring teeth to shift and loosen. Implants are the only option that helps prevent bone loss in the jawline.
  • Reliability. Implant placement surgery is one of the most effective types of surgery with a success rate of over 95%.
  • Confidence. Implants are nearly indistinguishable from natural teeth. Smile more often with a full, healthy set of teeth.

Where can I find headache relief?

If you suffer from headaches, breathing issues, dizziness, locked jaw, ear pain or snoring, it could be your Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ). Your Temporomandibular Joint is located close to your ear between your upper and lower jaw.

People with Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) can experience severe pain or discomfort that may either be temporary or last for many years. A complete dental and medical evaluation is required for proper diagnosis of TMD.

To evaluate whether you have TMD, your doctor will check for a variety of symptoms, including clicking or popping of the jaw joint and diagnostic wear patterns of the teeth. Many patients suffer from severe bruxism or grinding of the teeth at night. This can be harmful to your teeth and cause TMJ pain. Some patients simply clench their teeth during the day or at night. Clenching of the teeth is usually linked to increased stress levels. People with clenching, grinding or bruxism habits wear their tooth’s enamel away faster than normal and more frequently suffer from TMD.
