Many individuals grind and clench their teeth at night. The force of the jaw can cause chips and cracks in the enamel, which increases your risk for cavities. Patients may also experience pain in their jaw and notice headaches. Riverside Dental can get you a night guard to better your sleep and ease your pain!
Once an orthodontic appliance has straightened your teeth, you don’t want them to revert to their previous alignment. After many procedures, teeth can relapse following their orthodontic treatment. Wearing a retainer until your teeth are permanently set will stop the regression. Contact Riverside Dental if you are concerned about your teeth alignment.
Snoring / Sleep Apnea Appliances
Snoring isn’t pleasant for anybody! Riverside Dental offers snoring and sleep apnea appliances to help you and the people around you have more restful nights. Snoring means that air is not moving properly through your nose and throat, which can have a variety of causes, such as dental issues or nasal problems.
Sports are great for exercise, making friends, and getting out of the house. However, they can also be very hard on your teeth. Sport mouth guards can help protect your mouth and teeth from injuries. You are less likely to suffer from broken teeth and lacerations with one of our sports guards!
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) can have painful symptoms. If you have pain in your face and jaw or your jaw clicks and locks when you open or close it, you should contact Riverside Dental. TMD can invite numerous dental issues, including a misaligned bite and difficulty chewing.
TMJ stands for the temporomandibular joint. This joint is delicate and placed beside your ears. Since the joint is so small, many individuals struggle with pain in their TMJ. When the joint becomes inflamed or irritated, you can feel pain while chewing or speaking. Riverside Dental can help you restore function in your TMJ!
