Do you grind or clench your teeth while you sleep? Many patients aren’t aware of their nightly teeth grinding habit until they begin to experience the daytime consequences, which may include morning headaches, worn down teeth, jaw pain or other TMJ (temporomandibular joint) issues. At Riverwood Dental, we offer general dentistry treatments for teeth grinding, or bruxism, using top quality nightguards in Atlanta, GA.
When choosing a mouth guard for sports, there are countless options at nearby sporting goods stores. However, unlike a store-bought model, a custom mouth guard is made from precise measurements of your bite and mouth. This allows for an optimal fit and ensures the mouth guard stays in place and protects your smile. Mouth injuries during sports can be severe and cause lasting damage. Investing in a mouth guard can save you from serious injury during sports.
Removing a natural tooth is never our first line of treatment at Riverwood Dental. We offer a number of proven treatments in tooth repair. However, there are times in which a damaged or decayed tooth simply can’t be saved. When a tooth is beyond repair or a threat to your oral health, our dentist may recommend a tooth extraction. If you are in need of a tooth extraction in Atlanta, GA, call our office today.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a time-tested endodontic treatment used to save a dying or infected tooth. The pain that results from an infected tooth is often substantial, and a root canal is the general dentistry procedure of choice to not only bring you out of pain but restore the affected tooth back to health. If you have a tooth that is badly decayed, infected or damaged, you can trust our dental team to help you regain a confident, pain-free smile.
TMJ & TMD Treatment
TMJ is usually due to excess stress or pressure on the temporomandibular joint, which allows your jaw to open and slide back and forth. This can be caused by misaligned teeth, excess clenching of the jaw or teeth grinding. Treating the cause of excess stress on the jaw can help the joint and muscles recover and will stop the discomfort. Treatments can include fixing dental issues such as replacing missing teeth, receiving orthodontic treatment or preventing teeth grinding with a dental night guard. If you suspect you may have TMJ/TMD, call our office today to schedule your appointment.
