TMJ Therapy

Have you noticed that your jaw joints click or pop when you open your mouth? Do the muscles on the sides of your face feel tired or sore? Do your back teeth ache, or have you been told that you grind your teeth while asleep? These are a few of the most common symptoms associated with temporomandibular joint disorder, or dysfunction, which is often referred to as TMJ disorder. Temporomandibular joint disorder occurs when the bones that make up the jaw joint(s) are not properly seated, so when the lower jaw (mandible) moves, the joints, muscles, cushion, and nerves are irritated. When you close your mouth, the joints should be seated in a fully restful position. With TMJ disorder, the resting position isn’t possible.

Dental Crowns

A toothache, a cracked tooth, a dislodged filling or crown – these situations can disrupt life. Left alone, they will only worsen to cause more pain and damage to your oral health. In many cases, a dental crown is the treatment of choice.

Dental Bridges

One missing anterior tooth can ruin a smile, but if a tooth is lost in the back of the mouth, should you replace it? The answer is yes, without any doubt. The loss of one tooth anywhere in the mouth leaves remaining teeth responsible for more work. As those healthy teeth are placed under increased stress, the potential for their failure increases.

Tooth Extractions

We hear less and less about dental extractions, because people now have access to professional dental care, as well as great oral health products, and oral health education is taught from a young age. Fewer extractions are necessary, and that’s great news! Dr. Christian Rippe goes to great lengths to preserve teeth, when possible. He offers root canals in our office, to save internally infected teeth from requiring extraction. In some cases, though, extraction is the most practical and healthy treatment option.

Root Canal

An acute toothache can cause intense pain that interferes with your ability to work, follow through with commitments, and participate in social activities. Root canal therapy, despite its notorious reputation, relieves the pressure within a tooth. By alleviating the pressure, pain is resolved, as well. If you have an internally infected tooth, no other treatment will save the tooth from extraction. Root canal therapy is necessary, and it will bring relief.

Dentures

With the rapid advancements in modern dentistry, one would think that tooth loss would no longer be a serious issue. However, tooth loss stems from a myriad of factors to this day, which includes old age, severe malnutrition and periodontal disease. Considering that teeth serve as support not only for your jaw bone but also your entire facial structure, losing a tooth or all of your teeth can be devastating.
