Special note about Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders…
Some headache, jaw pain and facial pain may be caused by a Temporomandibular joint disorder, often just called TMJ. Surgical and nonsurgical treatment options are available for advanced TMJ cases. This is one surgical specialty that Dental Associates does not perform. In the event a TMJ disorder is diagnosed, we work to find a TMJ specialist and refer the patient to that provider.
Dental implants are today’s preferred treatment plan for replacing a single or multiple missing teeth. A dental implant is a small titanium rod that serves as the replacement for the natural root portion of a missing tooth. It offers a long-term fix if you’re missing one, two, three, or even all of your teeth. And because the implant acts as a natural root, it helps maintain the health and integrity of the jawbone, preserving the bone needed for a strong, stable foundation for biting and chewing. Once the dental implant is placed in the jaw, the replacement tooth (or teeth in the case of several missing teeth), is securely connected to the implant. The result is a natural-looking tooth that acts, feels and looks just like a real tooth. Learn more about dental implants.
Some oral surgery procedures may require sedation to ensure that you have the most comfortable experience possible. Your dentist and oral surgeon will work with you to decide which form of medication and sedation will be the best method for you. Learn more about sedation dentistry.
