What Do I Do If My Gums Are Bleeding?
Did you know that bleeding gums is the leading symptom of gum disease and tooth loss in adults? Gum disease is a progressive bacterial infection of the gums that can lead to tooth and bone loss if left untreated. Routine visits to the dentist and regular professional dental cleaning can help reduce your risk of gum disease and help you maintain a healthy smile.
During your routine visit, we will examine your teeth and gums for any signs of gum disease. Depending on the stage and severity, we may recommend comprehensive periodontal therapy treatment to alleviate your symptoms and remove any diseased gum tissue.
Our on-site periodontist offers personalized solutions for patients with gum disease. We use advanced dental technology to assess the health of your gums and deliver a treatment plan that is right for you. If you notice bleeding gums or have not visited the dentist recently, visit our Sterling dental office for a gum disease screening.
What Are My Treatment Options For Teeth Grinding?
Do you clench or grind your teeth? Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can damage your teeth and can lead to other oral health complications if left untreated.
Many patients don’t realize they grind or clench their teeth until they visit their dentist because bruxism typically occurs at night. Patients with bruxism may notice symptoms such as headaches, tooth damage, or facial pain.
In order to treat bruxism, it is necessary to identify its underlying cause. Our team will assess your teeth, gums, and bite to determine the cause of your bruxism. From there, we can create a comprehensive treatment plan that alleviates your symptoms, address any dental damage, and reduce your risk for future bruxism.
Can I Straighten Crooked Teeth?
Patients of all ages can receive treatment for crooked teeth. Not only can addressing crooked teeth help improve the appearance of your smile, but it can also improve your dental health. Patients with crooked teeth typically have a more difficult time brushing and flossing their teeth effectively.
Our team at Brighter Smile Family Dentistry & Orthodontics offer a full range of solution for patients with crooked teeth. Invisalign clear braces are one of the most popular solutions for teens and adults with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. Invisalign utilizes clear, removable aligners that gradually shift the teeth into proper alignment.
Do I Have Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition. This health concern causes repeated pauses in breathing while sleeping. The most common type of sleep apnea is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA causes the soft tissues in the mouth to block the airway. This muscle block prevents air from properly flowing through the necessary channels in the body.
If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, visit the team at Brighter Smile Family Dentistry & Orthodontics for a consultation. We will work with you to get you closer to better and more restful sleep.
How Do I Replace Missing Teeth?
Missing teeth can have detrimental effects on your oral health, dental function, and the overall appearance of your smile. Dr. Kavianpour and the team at Brighter Smile Family Dentistry & Orthodontics offer comprehensive solutions for patients with missing teeth.
Our team can assess your smile, review your medical history, and discuss your cosmetic goals. This helps us determine which tooth replacement option is right for you. Depending on your unique needs, we may recommend dental implants, dentures, dental bridges, or an implant secured restoration to restore your smile.
