If you don’t replace your toothbrush after catching your cold, the bacteria in the bristles can reinfect you and make you sick again. Alwaye Dental Speciality and Implant Center provides you appointments with all care.
We look at the mouth as more than teeth and gums – we include the soft tissues of the surrounding oral cavity and the muscles used for chewing and movement, including those around the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). In fact, these muscles that help create your “bite” or occlusion are often a source of problems that show up as jaw pain, neck or head aches, tooth wear and stress, failure of dental restorations, and which further can affect the health of your gums and jaw bones.
Many times patients are surprised when a comprehensive exam reveals problems with their occlusion. Usually the uneven wear patterns and the way the teeth fit together become apparent when your dentist helps you explore what you can feel and see in the mirror. Our dentists have advanced training in examining and treating occlusion problems so that with corrective care, stress can be reduced and equalized, pain can often be alleviated and dental restorations can last longer.
Your teeth do not function in isolation either. Looking at your mouth comprehensively, if a new restoration is recommended to repair a tooth, or a tooth cannot be saved and extraction is an option, the impact of those treatments on the other teeth in your mouth is best to be explored. It may mean that restorations or extractions are planned in a way to protect your other teeth from additional problems by maintaining optimum occlusion, or aid in correcting a malocclusion, or bad bite. It means looking at tooth replacement as a part of the solution of extracting a tooth. Treating “just one tooth” is often not in your best interest for long-term dental health.
As part of your comprehensive examination, we also use visual and manual processes to examine the soft tissues of the oral cavity and surrounding muscles for changes and abnormalities.
