Dental health is important. However, many people still find themselves putting off that twice-annual visit. Reasons such as inconvenience, fear or finances are often cited as the reasons for the delay in oral hygiene appointments, but in the long run it never works in your favor to neglect a trip to the dentist. Here are some things to remember about just how important it is to keep your visits consistent and on time.


Bruxism

People affected by bruxism unconsciously clench their teeth during the day or grind them at night while they sleep. Night grinding is referred to as sleep or nocturnal bruxism. If left unchecked, grinding and clenching can lead to damaged teeth and jaw disorders. With proper attention and care, however, it is possible to prevent this habit from becoming a much bigger dental problem.


The Different Types of Dentures

Dentures are false teeth designed to replace missing teeth. They can provide you with a more youthful look and allow you to eat and speak more easily. There are several different types of dentures, all of which can fit comfortably in your mouth and give the appearance of a healthy, natural smile.

No matter the type, all dentures first start with a discussion between you and your prosthodontist. If you are concerned with tooth loss, take the first step and make an appointment. Dr. Steven Fuqua of Fuqua Advanced Dental has received advanced training and specializes in replacing and restoring teeth. If you would like to make an appointment with Dr. Fuqua or want any additional information about dentures or other dental services, please contact our office in Southlake.

TMJ issues come with many symptoms. People suffering from TMJ-dysfunction/disorder may experience frequent headaches, pains in the neck, back or shoulders, ear pain, dizziness, ringing in the ears or jaw clicking. If you ever experience those problems and are unsure what is causing them, a visit to your dentist might be in order, as it could be TMJ related.

At Fuqua Advanced Dental, we know that TMJ-dysfunction is commonplace but complicated. The TMJ Association claims that around 35 million people are affected by TMJ-disorders in the United States. Most of those affected are women, at a ratio of nine to one. In fact, at Fuqua Advanced Dental, we check for signs of both TMJ-dysfunction and a similar disorder named bruxism (excessive teeth grinding or jaw clenching) at every regular dental visit.


Oral Health: A Gauge of Overall Health

Oral health habits may affect more than your smile. More and more studies are indicating relationships between dental health and a person’s overall health, including links to some very serious diseases.


Your Smile is Your Best Asset

Some people are born with perfect, winning smiles. Lucky! The rest of us have a variety of issues that make us feel embarrassed to smile. Missing, crooked or broken teeth, stains, dark fillings, and any number of other imperfections can eat away at our confidence and cause normally outgoing people to hide their smiles or cover their mouths when they have to speak.

Wanting a great smile isn’t vain; it’s a natural desire to look and feel our best. After all, we may not all be born with a Hollywood smile, but we can certainly get one. There are lots of options that can help you get the smile you’ve always dreamed about.
