Family dentistry and general dentistry share many similarities in that they both give high-quality dental care to patients while using the same equipment and following the same standards. They also provide patients with information about their oral health. When you visit Denali Dental Care, we will communicate with you to develop a tailored treatment plan to improve your oral health both now and in the future.
Types of Treatment at Denali Dental Care
- BOTOX® for TMJ & Pain Management
Depending on your symptoms, BOTOX for TMJ is injected into the jaw muscles, forehead, and temple. The injections will cause the jaw muscles to have limited activity, which will relieve discomfort and reduce TMJ symptoms.
There are numerous therapies available to assist in relieving bruxism and stopping grinding your teeth, ranging from relaxation techniques to dental appliances such as night guards.
- Dental Cleanings and Exams
Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most basic but crucial preventive services we offer at our practice. We will provide professional teeth cleaning and dental exam every time you visit our dental facility for a checkup to help your smile stay healthy.
Our dentists may recommend additional professional dental cleanings, antibiotic therapy, scaling, and root planing, or gum surgery depending on the severity of the issue.
Our dentists may offer a specific mouth guard to alleviate your headaches. This mouth guard prevents you from grinding and clenching your teeth. The bite guard can also be utilized to keep your jaw in a more natural position, easing tension and helping to minimize headache frequency.
If you have obstructive sleep apnea, our dentists may recommend a simple mouth appliance. By fitting over your teeth and keeping your airway open while you sleep, the appliance treats obstructive sleep apnea.
We will give you a custom-made oral appliance for this treatment. The snoring device works by keeping your airway open and clear of obstacles while you sleep.
Jaw and facial relaxation exercises, lifestyle adjustments, restorative dental procedures, a mouth guard or night guard, or jaw surgery may all be used to treat TMD.
Wisdom teeth may become impacted or grow in at an improper angle if there is insufficient space for them. To avoid these potential consequences and to keep your smile healthy, our dentists may prescribe wisdom tooth removal.
