At Danville Dental Associates, we believe that the best defense is a good offense. That’s why our general dental care is well-rounded and tailored to fit the needs of every patient. We like to tackle any signs of problems head-on so you can relax knowing that your dental care team at Danville Dental Associates has your best interests at heart.
General dentistry encompasses all of the preventive and restorative procedures your family needs for strong, healthy smiles. You know the basics of oral healthcare: regular checkups, professional dental cleanings, and maintaining a good oral healthcare routine between visits to the dentist. The American Dental Association recommends that you see your dentist every six months.
During your general dentistry appointment, your doctor may notice that your teeth appear to be worn down or that you have an abnormal bite. You might be a night grinder and subsequently suffering from a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. This is not an uncommon problem; sufferers of night grinding unconsciously clench their jaw as they sleep. This wears down enamel and places undue stress on your temporomandibular joints, which hinge your lower jaw to your skull. This can also lead to pain in the jaw and/or headaches. Danville Dental Associates can provide custom made appliances, such as the NTI-tss device, designed to fit your teeth and mouth to help counter this clenching or grinding habit, protect your teeth and jaw, and provide, in the majority of cases, significant relief from discomfort.
