The Benefits of Ultrasonic Scaling

They can be uncomfortable, especially if we haven’t been sufficiently taking care of our teeth and, in particular, gums. This potential discomfort is precisely why we offer ultrasonic scaling. This technique helps combat and prevent plaque buildup and gingivitis while providing a much more comfortable experience. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX, dentist discusses this process and how it can help improve the health of your mouth.

Should I Discuss Bruxism With My Dentist?

If you catch yourself grinding your teeth reflexively during the day, or if you have reason to believe you are doing so while you sleep, tell your dentist! A problem with habitual teeth grinding, or bruxism, can lead to more trouble than you may expect if it is not properly managed. This issue could be linked to troubles with TMJ disorder, a problem that develops when your jaw joints and muscles no longer work in alignment. Grinding and clenching can also lead to enamel damage that puts you at risk for smile problems and oral health difficulties. At our Houston, TX dental practice, we are ready to help you deal with bruxism. We can also work with you to address related TMJ issues, or trouble with dental damage that has already occurred.
