Common Dental Problems and Solutions

Modern dentistry offers remedies for just about every oral health problem you might experience. Let’s talk about some of the most common problems and ways to improve the beauty and health of your smile.

Stained teeth

Stubborn stains from colored drinks and tobacco are hard to remove with brushing, so teeth whitening is a popular solution. It’s available in at-home kits or professionally in dental offices.

Chipped or gapped teeth

Minor cosmetic issues may be treated with dental bonding, which can hide imperfections quickly and painlessly.

Tooth decay

A dentist will remove decay and usually fill the cavity with a composite resin filling. Dental inlays or onlays are sometimes needed to reinforce the tooth.

Cracked or broken teeth

For a severely damaged tooth, a crown may be necessary to provide stability and save the tooth.

Missing teeth

Dental implants and bridges are solutions to missing teeth, and can save your mouth’s function and appearance.

Crooked teeth or misaligned bite

Cosmetic dentistry can repair minor issues, but significant problems may warrant orthodontic treatment. Invisalign® clear braces provide a modern alternative to traditional braces.

Bleeding gums

Swollen, bleeding gums are often the initial signs of gum disease. Treatment ranges from deep cleaning to surgery, depending on how advanced the disease is.

Jaw Pain

The joint where your jawbone and skull meet is called the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Stress or misalignment can cause pain, and dentists provide treatment like appliances, orthodontics, or relaxation techniques.

Unattractive smile

If you’re unhappy with your smile, porcelain veneers may be placed over your teeth to mask many problems. Severe dental problems can call for full mouth reconstruction, which provides a complete overhaul of your smile and transforms it completely.
