Finding Healing for Your Oral Conditions
Treating a Wide Range of Dental Issues
If you have visited the dentist regularly throughout your life, they have probably told you that your mouth is one of the most important parts of your body, and they were correct. Your mouth is the gateway that allows most of the substances entering your body to pass through. It is what enables you to eat, drink, breathe, speak, show emotion, and it is also the catalyst of many other bodily functions like the digestive system. For these reasons, when conditions affect the functionality of your mouth, it can be quite noticeable and interfere with your everyday life. Luckily, Dr. Brock Lynn has extensive experience providing treatment for gum disease, oral surgery, dental implants, and more. This experience has allowed Lynn Dental Care to treat an array of oral conditions, including:
- Gum disease: Gum disease is an infection of the bone, teeth, and gum tissues that affects millions of Americans. The disease is easily preventable with proper oral care and can be cured during the earlier stages. At Lynn Dental Care, our dental team and board-certified periodontist have over 38 years of experience in diagnosing, treating, and preventing gum disease through effective procedures like osseous surgery and minimally invasive LANAP® laser care.
- Gum recession: This is a common condition that occurs when the gum tissue pulls away from its natural location. Even though it is a natural occurrence, it can cause both aesthetic and functional issues in your smile. When a smile is affected by gum recession, the teeth can appear longer and become prone to tooth damage. At Lynn Dental Care, we offer modern solutions to correct receding gums, like gum and bone grafting.
- Missing teeth: Missing teeth can negatively affect an individual's oral function and emotional well-being. Tooth loss can be caused by gum disease, tooth extractions, and dental trauma. Spaces between the teeth can impact the aesthetics of the smile and the ability to speak clearly. Not only can this cause difficulty in chewing foods comfortably, it can drastically change one's facial appearance. There are a few different ways we can treat missing teeth, including dental implants, which will permanently replace the function and beauty of natural teeth.
- Crooked teeth: We commonly see patients who are concerned about crooked teeth. They find that it affects their self-confidence and the functionality of their mouths. To help instill a renewed sense of confidence, we offer multiple orthodontic solutions that work to align crooked teeth, including Invisalign® and traditional braces.
- Yellow teeth: Even those who take care of their oral hygiene can be prone to yellowing and discolored teeth over time. Your smile is the first feature many people notice about you, so wanting a dazzling white smile is natural. Luckily, at Lynn Dental Care, we offer top quality teeth whitening treatments that can remove years of staining from the surfaces of the teeth.
- Jaw pain: A sore or tired jaw makes it difficult to eat, speak, and simply enjoy a regular lifestyle. For many people, their jaw pain stems from an issue with their temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which is the muscle that connects the jaw to the skull. Patients with a misaligned bite can also suffer from jaw pain, which causes them to grind their teeth at night. At Lynn Dental Care, we can recommend a variety of TMJ treatments to alleviate your jaw pain including customized nightguards, occlusal adjustments, and orthotics. As always, our team will work with your specific needs and create a treatment plan just for you.
- Snoring: If your family or friends have been complaining about excessive snoring, or you are experiencing restless nights because of it, you might be suffering with a condition called sleep apnea. It is a breathing disorder marked by your airways becoming blocked at night during sleep. Treatment is available at Lynn Dental Care, where we offer a minimally invasive treatment called oral appliance mouth guards.
- Peri-implantitis: Peri-implantitis is a condition in which a dental implant and the tissues surrounding it become infected, which eventually leads to failure of the implant. When an implant fails, you will need to have the area treated and another implant placed. This issue can usually be prevented with proper oral care, but if it does occur, we can use modern laser technology in an advanced protocol called LAPIP®. LAPIP will gently eradicate signs of peri-implantitis in a virtually painless procedure that will restore the health of your smile.
