Nightguards for TMJ/Bruxism
Bruxism (also known as “teeth grinding”) is a common chronic condition, and one that typically affects patients while they’re sleeping, making it a difficult habit to break on your own. Thankfully, Dr. Whiteley is here to help. By wearing a customized nightguard, patients protect their teeth and minimize the effects of grinding including oral damage, severe headaches, and the threat of future TMJ disorder. We hope to help you get a good night’s rest at last.
Nearly 80% of the population is thought to suffer from some level of periodontal disease, and the worst part is that many of these people don’t even know it. While symptoms may start out relatively mild, they quickly progress causing destructive consequences. Dr. Whiteley makes the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease a priority. He offers several treatment options to combat decay and treat damage depending on your needs including professional scaling and root planing, antibiotic therapy, and general maintenance.
In the past, X-rays were captured traditionally and then developed in a darkroom at a tedious pace. Patients also had to endure significant doses of radiation during the process. Today, our team is happy to put this method in the past. Our digital X-ray technology allows us to take detailed images of your smile and pull them up on a computer screen within seconds. We even make changes for your benefit like magnification or color-coding. Better yet, the amount of necessary radiation is reduced up to 90%.
