Just the thought of visiting the dentist or undergoing a specific procedure can cause some patients to feel anxious. At Concord Dental Group, we do everything possible to ensure all visits are comfortable and stress-free. However, some patients still need a little extra help relaxing.
Do you have pain in the back of your mouth that doesn’t go away? It might be more than just an annoyance that disrupts your everyday routine. If you’ve ever experienced a locked jaw, facial swelling or even hearing problems, then you may find yourself with a temporomandibular joint disorder, better known as TMJ. Many people go months or even years without ever realizing the pain they are having is from TMJ.
Walking into a dentist’s office can cause those with dental anxiety or a dental phobia to feel extremely uncomfortable. While our skilled team at Concord Dental Group offers sedation dentistry to assist patients through any type of appointment, sometimes just understanding the underlying causes of dental anxiety can help in managing any fears.
Dental veneers and caps, also known as crowns, help to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile. Both cover your teeth to mask imperfections, such as discoloration, and misshaped and chipped teeth. While they both achieve similar results, the procedures and best practices for both are very different. So how do you know which is the right option for you?
