    Signs You Might Have TMJ

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Temporomandibular disorders, often referred to as “TMJ”, are painful disorders that affect the joint in your face that connects the temporal bone to the lower jaw. Each time you open your mouth to yawn or to talk to a friend, you can feel this particular joint working to facilitate that simple action. When this joint or the jaw or surrounding tissue become injured or irritated, the results often include unpleasant symptoms such as a locked jaw, a clicking sound when opening the mouth, and difficulty chewing. All of these symptoms are signs of TMJ. Other worrisome signs you should look out for include a sensation that your face is tired, facial swelling, and pain in the jaw, neck, and shoulders.

    If your cosmetic dentist suspects that you are suffering from a temporomandibular disorder, then he will run several tests to verify those suspicions before prescribing an effective treatment method. Painful joint disorders are just one of the problematic dental issues that the team here at Studio B Smiles help you eliminate from your life. Call us at (480) 619-5102 to learn more about teeth whitening, veneers, and other services that we offer.

     

    Signs You Might be Damaging Your Teeth at Night

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Approximately 40 million Americans suffer from some type of headache such as migraines or tension headaches. These headaches are often caused by involuntary grinding and clenching. This condition, known as bruxism, can also cause tooth damage and problems with the Temporal Mandibular Joint (TMJ). If you think you’re grinding or clenching your teeth at night, your Phoenix cosmetic dentist can fit you with an NTI device that works to stop pain as well as protect your teeth from excessive wear. If you notice any of the following signs, contact your dentist to learn about your treatment options.

    Chronic Headache
    Jaw clenching and teeth grinding can result in a dull, constant headache originating in the temples. If you feel a headache primarily in the mornings or when waking up from a long nap, see your dentist to determine if bruxism or a TMJ disorder is to blame for your discomfort.

    Sore Jaw
    Tired or tight jaw muscles are another indication that you may be damaging your teeth at night, especially if you experience pain primarily after waking. If it hurts to yawn or chew your breakfast, consult with a dentist about your treatment options.

    Tooth Damage
    Prolonged grinding and clenching may be enough to cause visible damage to your teeth. If you notice teeth that are flattened, fractured, chipped, or loose, make an appointment with your dentist. Worn tooth enamel and increased tooth sensitivity are also signs that warrant a visit to your dentist to talk about bruxism.

    If you notice any of these signs, make an appointment with Studio B Smiles in Scottsdale, the official cosmetic dentist of the Phoenix Suns and Arizona Rattlers. Visit our website to learn how we treat bruxism and TMJ disorders, or call us at (480) 619-5102 to schedule an appointment with one of our dentists. 

    The Purpose of Crowns

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Crowns are one of the most common cosmetic and restorative dental treatments and are used to correct a number of smile irregularities. Your cosmetic dentist may recommend that you receive a crown if one of your teeth is misshapen or discolored or if it has become weak due to prolonged decay or trauma.

    No matter what the reason is for using a dental crown, patients can rest assured knowing that their new crown will look great thanks to the use of materials that closely resemble the look of natural teeth. For more information on how crowns can improve a smile, check out this video from the American Dental Association.

    Dental crowns are just one of the many cosmetic procedures that we offer here at Studio B Smiles. To learn more about our dental practice or to schedule an appointment with us, call (480) 619-5102.
