Details of Cosmetic Dentistry

Any dentist can grind your teeth down and cement white crowns to call themselves a cosmetic dentist. However, a true specialized cosmetic dentist will evaluate your bite, length of teeth, lips, and shapes of your teeth in addition to numerous other factors before deciding what treatment will work best for your mouth. The attention to detail is how great cases are designed and separates them from any other dentist. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry credentialing system ensures that their accredited dentists are held to this higher standard through rigorous testing and evaluation of patients.

TMJ symptoms

Temporomandibular joint(TMJ) disorders can include symptoms such as ringing or stuffiness in the ears, clicking or popping noises when opening or closing, grinding or clenching of teeth, and headaches. Although you may not have pain or discomfort currently, the TMJ can eventually break down if not treated. It is a joint similar to the knee or shoulder joint, which allows the movement between bones and can develop the same problems similar to other joints. At Manoa Dental, Dr. Keri Do can evaluate and treat TMJ symptoms non-surgically after a thorough evaluation. Call us for a consult to find out what we can do for you.
