See For Yourself!

Time and time again, our patients will say after their first visit with us: “I’ve never had an exam like that before!  That was Great!”

Why?  All because at the end of their comprehensive exam, we give them a “tour of your mouth” with the intraoral camera.  You see what we see, except better: Try your teeth magnified 10 times on a television screen!  All doubts erased and everything face-value for what it is.

I’ve always said, I wish my mechanic had a camera to show me why he had to make a repair on my car.  Without a picture, I’m completely at his mercy and can only hope that he’s being honest with me.  At Stovall & Cheng, DDS, a picture says a thousand words.  You are literally in “partnership” with us in seeing why we give a particular recommendation. 

Isn’t technology great in 2010?  You deserve to be in an office that utilizes the latest technology to do great dentistry and to give you a comfortable, informed experience.  With a camera just a little larger than a ball point pen, see for yourself!

Teeth grinding can destroy teeth, A nightguard can help!

Teeth Grinding or “Bruxing” is one of the most destructive forces to teeth.  What makes it so destructive is that most people aren’t even aware that they are doing it.  The photo above shows what can result from not being proactive when you have a grinding habit.

With the stresses of today’s world, many people take out that stress on their teeth while they’re asleep.  Studies have shown that the jaw muscles can generate up to 5-6 hundred pounds of pressure on the teeth!  Some people even find that they are clenching or grinding during the day.  Ever find yourself with teeth clenched together tightly as you’re concentrating at work or perhaps stuck in traffic to/from work?

The good news is, whether you feel that you are grinding/clenching or your dentist finds evidence in your mouth that you are doing so, a form-fit mouthguard can be made to help protect your teeth.  A mouthguard will not make you stop your habit but it will surely help protect your teeth from the destructive forces of bruxism.  It only takes two visits:  The first visit is to take molds of your teeth.  The models of your mouth are then sent to a dental lab where a precision-fit mouthguard is made to fit your teeth.

A mouthguard (also called a nightguard) cost around $400-500.  This is a small price to pay for the amount in dental work it can help you save from having as a result from chipping/wearing away your teeth!

If you find yourself waking up with sore jaws, or you seem to breaking/chipping teeth all the time, if you have constant “tension headaches,” or if all of your teeth are sensitive to cold or just sore all the time, chances are, you are grinding/clenching at night.

Call your dentist or our office today for an appointment!  817-292-5957

After- What a difference after full mouth reconstruction!

Crowded and Crooked teeth even after braces?

After Just One Year With Invisalign !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many of us are in the same boat.  Our teeth have moved back to where they were before we had braces.  Teeth start to crowd and become crooked.  The teeth become harder to clean, the gums bleed easier and sometimes it’s hard to get floss between the teeth.  As teeth crowd and lose their side-by-side support, they can even “float” up…making the teeth appear even more uneven.

Or maybe you’ve never had braces but you’ve noticed your teeth becoming more and more crooked.  A bad bite can many times lead to damaging forces on the teeth, causing them to wear down abnormally and soon, teeth begin to chip and break.

What if there were a way to straighten them without metal or wires showing in about a year?  With Invisalign, it’s possible!  Please call us today for a free consultation.  817-292-5957.

Call before the end of May 2009 and receive free teeth whitening with each Invisalign treatment!
