Keeping your smile whole and healthy often comes down to proper preventive dental care. The process is simple: Brush twice a day, floss once a day, and see Dr. Capehart every six months for a regular checkup.
If you’re worried about the correct way to implement preventive dentistry, you can ask Dr. Capehart for suggestions. Dr. Capehart enjoys educating patients about proper protocols for brushing and flossing, and can offer advice that caters to your individual preventive dentistry needs.
In the United States, approximately 35 million people suffer from TMJ disorders. A patient suffering from TMJD may experience stiffness in the jaw muscles, pressure or ringing in the ears, chronic headaches, pain in the neck and shoulders, or dizziness. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, you might benefit from a bite assessment and a custom appliance designed to help you find relief.
Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can blunt the teeth, create facial muscle pain, and increase TMJ issues. We create custom night guards to help alleviate nightly teeth grinding, alleviating these kinds of issues for greater jaw health.
