If you want to know more about the common dental concerns we treat in our office, schedule an appointment with Dr. Ahlbrecht.
Crooked Teeth: Straighten crooked teeth with Invisalign, porcelain veneers, tooth bonding, and dental crowns. It may be difficult to clean between crooked or misaligned teeth, so it is important to straighten them to prevent future problems such as gum disease and tooth decay. Those with a misaligned bite or crooked teeth are at a higher risk for bruxism, or teeth grinding, which can wear teeth down. However, cosmetic and restorative solutions allow for a more uniform and healthy look.
Gummy Smile: Do you feel embarrassed because of your gummy smile? Are you looking for a balanced look? Try gum contouring. An excess amount of gum tissue can cause irregular and disproportionate gum lines. Gum contouring is a solution that evens out the teeth and gums with these benefits:
- An even gum line
- More proportionate teeth
- A straighter smile
Furthermore, patients with small teeth, a small upper lip, or unproperly erupted teeth benefit from treatment. Dr. Ahlbrecht will work with you to generate precise areas for treatment.
Missing Teeth: If you have lost one or multiple teeth, you are prone to symptoms such as tooth decay, shifting teeth, and facial sagging. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Ahlbrecht to find the restorative solution that’s right for you. Dental implants, a dental bridge, and full and partial dentures are some of the options that can help you achieve a fuller and healthier smile. People can lose teeth at any age due to genetics, injury, or infection. Our staff will help you discover the proper treatment that preserves the tooth structure while simultaneously improving aesthetics.
Teeth Grinding: Because it often occurs during sleep, most people are unaware that they grind their teeth. However, a dull, constant headache or sore jaw when you wake up is a telltale symptom of bruxism, or teeth grinding. Millions of Americans may clench or grind their teeth at night or during stressful situations. This can result in worn down or even broken and teeth. Our team will review your unique problems, budget, goals, and oral health in order to offer the correct oral appliance to keep your teeth from touching. In addition, because it acts like a mouthguard, an oral appliance protects teeth from future wear.
