TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Therapy
TMJ therapy begins with a discussion of symptoms and a thorough exam. In order to properly assess your situation, images of the TMJ’s, pictures of your face and teeth, models of your teeth and a record of how you bite down may be needed. After the proper information is gathered the process of diagnosis and treatment begins.
Clenching & Grinding Appliances can be fabricated to protect the teeth against destructive forces of clenching and grinding. These appliances can be worn during the day or night. They are custom fit to your mouth and accurately adjusted to your bite scheme.
Laser Cavity Detection
The Diagnodent uses a laser to measure the fluorescence of decay. Teeth do not fluoresce, but decay will. The device uses a range of numbers that tell the dentist if it is an area that needs to be treated now or simply monitored. The Diagnodent cavity detector catches decay at its earliest stages and allows for minimally invasive dental solutions. Smaller fillings mean less discomfort, less expense and stronger teeth.
Soft Tissue Laser Dr. Klein uses a soft-tissue laser to comfortably and efficiently perform a variety of dental procedures. We can use the laser to recontour gum lines, perform tooth reshaping, treat canker sores and fever blisters, remove suspicious lesions for biopsy, and more. Laser dentistry is more comfortable than traditional dental surgery. Because the laser seals and sterilizes tissue as it goes, there’s minimal bleeding and no need for stitches. Procedure and recovery time are fast, and most patients resume their normal activities quickly following laser surgery. Many patients report that they feel virtually no discomfort during or after treatment with our soft-tissue laser.
Proffesional Teeth Whitening
The benefits of whiter teeth go beyond a cleaner looking and more attractive smile–they can boost your confidence and self-esteem, too. As an added bonus, whiter teeth can lead to healthier teeth because when your teeth look better, you tend to take better care of them to keep them looking fabulous.
