Bruxism

March 8, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — robertmitchell @ 9:51 am
bruxism

Left untreated, teeth grinding can cause long-term damage to your gums and teeth. Now for the good news: You have lots of treatment options.

 

What you call involuntary teeth grinding has an official term; bruxism is that term and it can refer to involuntary grinding that takes place either while you are awake or asleep. Grinding that only takes place during the night is known as nocturnal bruxism and is potentially a much more serious problem .One telltale sign that you may be unknowingly suffering from nocturnal bruxism is routinely waking up with a sore jaw, aching teeth or even a headache. Other symptoms of involuntary grinding of teeth would be a notable dulling of sharp teeth like the incisors or unexplained wearing down of flattened teeth like molars. A number of treatment options are available for bruxism: Occlusal Splint’s that can be worn day or night (Nightguard) or Orthodontic Adjustments.

RESOLVE TO HAVE A HEALTHIER SMILE IN 2017!!!

One of the best ways to get a beautiful, healthy smile is to brush at least twice a day. But what else can you do to improve the health and appearance of your teeth? Here are Dallas cosmetic dentist Dr. Robert Mitchell’s Top 10 resolutions for a healthier smile in 2013!

Eat Healthy Foods: An apple a day keeps cavities away. A balanced diet is the best way to make a healthier you and that includes improving your smile. You can help prevent tooth decay by eating lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products and lean proteins. Go easy when eating acidic fruits though, like the Texas state fruit, red grapefruit.
Make an Appointment: When was your last dental check-up? You should see your dentist and have your teeth cleaned at least twice a year. This not only cleans teeth of tartar and plaque, but allows for early detection of problems that can ruin a great smile. Even in between visits can be a great time for a whitening treatment!
Get Fit: Happiness and exercise are both linked with a boost to the immune system and with the release of endorphins. Exercise increases energy, gives you a sense of accomplishment when personal fitness goals are met and instills a sense of pride with an improved physical appearance. That’s something to smile about!
Stop Biting Nails: Nail biting not only wreaks havoc on your manicure, but can destroy a beautiful smile. According to the Academy of General Dentistry, nail biting can crack, chip or wear down front teeth.
Help Others: One of the best ways to improve your smile is to bring a smile to others. Make this your year to volunteer and help others.
Quit Smoking: Smoking and tobacco products can ruin your smile by giving you bad breath, stained teeth, difficulties in correcting cosmetic dental problems, gum disease and oral cancer.
Take a Trip: Traveling somewhere wonderful can improve your smile. We recommend our own perfect city: Dallas, of course! But our whole state is a traveler’s paradise, considering it is the 2nd largest state in the U.S.!
Spend More Time with Family and Friends: Work, stress and the daily grind can steal your smile. Get back to what’s important and vow to spend more time with loved ones!
Have Fun: Improve your smile by smiling more. Watch a funny movie, see a comedian or laugh about memories with an old friend!
Chew More Gum: It’s true! Chewing gum can improve your smile, provided it is sugar-free. According to the ADA, research shows that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay.
Dr. Mitchell is hopeful these resolutions improve your smile in 2013! Do you have another resolution or a creative way to achieve your goals in 2013? Share it with us!

Cosmetic Bonding in Dallas, TX

ACTUAL PATIENT

***ACTUAL PATIENT***

If you have a chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect tooth that needs cosmetic restoration, we may suggest one-appointment bonding. Dr. Mitchell can apply liquid composite resin that’s been shaded to blend with your tooth’s color in order to rebuild a pleasing shape to your tooth. After hardening the resin with a curing light, he will artistically sculpt and polish the restoration. In just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile! Cosmetic bonding can be a viable, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, but it lasts only 5 to 10 years with proper care. Bonding will not discolor as your natural tooth enamel will, so touch-up teeth whitening may be required to keep your natural teeth the same shade as the bonded area.

 

Give us a call today at (972) 233-1311 to schedule your complimentary consultation.

We look forward to meeting you soon.

Beautifying Dallas Smiles with Porcelain Veneers

 

A recent poll by the AACD indicates that a beautiful smile can make you appear more attractive, confident, interesting, and intelligent. If your front teeth are less than ideal, we can help. Dr. Mitchell uses porcelain veneers to transform misshapen, stained, or damaged teeth.

Custom Porcelain Veneers

Custom-made veneers completely cover teeth to alter their shape, size, and color. They reflect light like natural tooth enamel, so they look and feel completely natural. Veneers are a custom restoration, which means they’re individually created to give you a unique, vibrant smile.

It will take three visits to design and place your porcelain veneers. After your cosmetic dentistry consultation, Dr. Mitchell will remove a small amount of enamel from each tooth that’s going to be covered by a veneer. Then, he’ll take a dental impression and fit you with temporaries. A skilled ceramist at a trusted lab will make your custom veneers by hand. When your restorations are completed, Dr. Mitchell will remove the temporaries and permanently bond your porcelain veneers in place, transforming your smile and boosting your confidence.

Give us a call today at (972) 233-1311 to schedule your complimentary consultation.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
