Tell Your Dentist About Issues With Jaw Pain

Instead of simply enduring jaw pain and going about your life with limited or uncomfortable bite function, tell your Redmond, OR dentist about the matter. When you do so, you can learn more about this issue, TMJ disorder, and find out about how it can be treated. People can experience issues with jaw stiffness and pain because of poor joint alignment and movement. Without treatment, this can lead to worsening discomfort when they bite, chew, and speak. It can also cause issues with headaches, along with more frequent teeth grinding and trouble with neck and shoulder pain. Fortunately, TMJ treatment can put an end to these issues and improve your quality of life! (more…)

Providing Same-Day Crowns For Patients

If you need to undergo treatment because of tooth decay or an injury, it is important that you receive the right restoration. A dental filling is a conservative treatment option that only covers an area where a cavity formed, which means the surrounding structure is left alone. However, if you have a more serious problem with decay or an injury, the placement of a crown becomes necessary. At many other dental offices, it is necessary for you to schedule two appointments to have this restoration placed. However, this is not the case at our Redmond, OR dentist’s office, as we can provide one in just one appointment! This is thanks to our use of CEREC technology, which provides restorations in-office that are convenient and smile-friendly. (more…)
