Xeomin for TMJ Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJD or TMJ), are notoriously difficult to diagnose and treat.  Many of the related symptoms, such as headaches and earaches, often lead doctors to diagnose a sinus condition, as opposed to a problem with the jaw joint.  TMJ symptoms often change in severity, depending on how much stress the sufferer is experiencing.  During an intensely stressful period, grinding teeth, debilitating earaches, and lockjaw may occur. Xeomin injections are sometimes an effective and painless way to alleviate tension in the temporomandibular joint, reducing jaw pain, headaches, and suffering. Xeomin is a newer drug but similar…
Wisdom Teeth Removal Wisdom teeth are your third set of molars and they typically erupt from the jawbone in your early twenties. Wisdom teeth sit very far back in the mouth and many times people don’t have room in their mouth for them to fit correctly. This is why wisdom teeth typically cause problems when they emerge. Some people are born without wisdom teeth. A simple X-ray will reveal whether you have wisdom teeth or not and whether they can be expected to cause problems for the neighboring teeth. If this is the case, extraction may be recommended. The complexity…
What is Root Canal Therapy? Root canal or endodontic therapy involves the elimination of infection and decay from the interior of the tooth: in the root canals and in its central pulp chamber, where all the nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues are housed. Infection is typically caused when bacteria find a route into the heart of the tooth, either by decay of the protective enamel covering the dentin of the tooth or by physical trauma leading to a crack, chip or fracture. Either way, since the inside of a tooth is encased by a hard protective shell, the chances…
Dental Bite Guards Dental bite guards provide Colorado Springs and Pueblo patients with an effective way to prevent trauma and advanced wear to the teeth as a result of contact injury during sports, Bruxism (teeth grinding), malocclusions (bad bites) or temporomandibular joint (TMJ and TMD) disorders. All of these factors can cause the teeth to become damaged or to sustain premature wear-and-tear, potentially leading to graver and more expensive consequences further down the line. You Should Have a Dental Bite Guard Fitted If… You struggle with TMD – a TMJ bite guard will help to alleviate the stress this puts…
Tooth Fillings & Sealants Tooth colored fillings offer Colorado Springs and Pueblo residents an excellent restorative and preventative solution for flaws, cracks and cavities in the tooth structure. They can also be used for cosmetic purposes. By eliminating any existing infection or decay and filling it in with a durable and aesthetic composite material, further decay can be prevented and dental health restored. Tooth Colored Fillings: What Causes Cavities? Cavities are tiny holes in your teeth that have been formed by bacteria. Bacteria feast upon the food debris that is left behind in your mouth after a meal – this…
Laser Gum Therapy & Treatment Gum disease is essentially an advanced and chronic bacterial infection of the soft tissues surrounding the teeth. Over time and with habits such as smoking and poor oral hygiene, bacteria migrate deep down into the gums around the teeth, forming pockets of decay and infection. This causes the gums to pull away from the roots of the teeth and, without treatment, can lead to tooth loss. Laser treatment for gum disease is an excellent method for eliminating diseased tissue and halting the progression of infection, especially if used in conjunction with Scaling and Root Planing…
Gum Disease Treatment & Care Gum disease treatment in Colorado Springs and Pueblo is typically performed over the course of several dental appointments. During each session, a high energy laser will be traced quickly around the gum line to kill the bacteria causing the disease. Laser therapy for gum disease is typically painless, so you need not worry about feeling any discomfort. You will then be allowed to return home and begin your at-home therapy that generally involves the use of oral hygiene products, nutritional supplements and a special antibacterial oral mouthwash. Your Next Appointment… “You should find that the…
Dental Cleanings & Oral Health Regular professional dental cleanings are a fundamental component of the preventative oral healthcare that will keep your teeth and gums in fantastic lifelong condition. Even if you are dedicated to maintaining a rigorous home oral hygiene routine, you should see your oral hygienist at least twice a year for a dental cleaning. When plaque hardens, it forms tartar, which can lead to the irritation and inflammation of the gums, as well as oral disease. Only a professional cleaning can remove tartar, hence the importance of this service. What Does a Dental Cleaning Involve? Each tooth…
