Bruxism is a chronic condition that often involves grinding or clenching of teeth at night. Estimated to affect somewhere between 30 and 40 million across the US, a case of bruxism often goes unnoticed for many years until its effects on the jaws, teeth, or facial muscles become most severe. At Smiles Etcetera, our experienced dentist provides a sweeping range of advanced dental services for your continued oral health, including treatments for bruxism. Whether you require the essentials in preventive, emergency and pediatric care, or the most leading-edge restorative, prosthetic and cosmetic services for your smile, you can count on our 28358 dental office for all your comprehensive oral care needs.

One of the difficulties with recognizing the signs of bruxism is that most people who suffer from it are unaware of their clenching or grinding habit. As a result, sometimes it’s not until chronic orofacial pain, jaw pain or stiffness develops and is reported to the dentist that a proper diagnosis can be made. At our 28358 dental office, Dr. Davis is highly familiarized with the tell tale signs of bruxism, from unusual wear spots on the teeth, to muscle tension in and around the orofacial complex. In some cases, bruxism can also contribute to the development of a TMJ jaw-joint disorder. With a customized set of nightguards, worn while sleeping, your jaws can be held safely and comfortably apart throughout the night, eliminating the possibility of clenching or grinding your teeth. As a dentist, Dr. Davis is highly skilled in making your night guards optimally comfortable, therapeutic and effective.

If you’ve been exhibiting dental symptoms such as jaw pain, jaw stiffness, orofacial pain, or a bed partner has noticed you clenching your teeth while you’re asleep, we invite you to our 28358 dental office for a careful oral examination. For the gentle and skilled care your smile deserves, contact the friendly staff at Smiles Etcetera today!

A mouthful of stained, discolored teeth can be very embarrassing and affect your self-confidence. But there is no reason you can’t change that and make a big difference in your smile. Whitening your teeth can take years off of your appearance almost immediately and boost your self-esteem. Teeth that have been stained or darkened by food, tobacco use, age, medications or injury can be lightened and brightened by means of a non-invasive process known as teeth whitening. At Smiles Etcetera, your 28358 dental office, Dr. Dan Davis can whiten your teeth and give you a dazzling, bright smile.

Teeth whitening or bleaching simply refers to any process that will make the teeth appear whiter. You can walk into any drug store today and purchase one of the many over the counter options for teeth whitening. However, if you want to see stunning results, the most effective and safest teeth whitening systems are the professional strength ones available at the 28358 dental office. A professional whitening system offers a higher concentration of whitening components and delivers them to the teeth in the most efficient manner to achieve optimal results.

At our 28358 dental office we offer two outstanding options for tooth whitening. You can choose either an in-office tooth whitening procedure or a professional take home system. With both systems you can achieve pleasing results.  However the results are quickest with our in-office procedure. Just imagine, in a single appointment, you can achieve a smile that is several shades whiter and brighter than the original color of your teeth. If you prefer the comfort and convenience of performing your treatments at home, our professional strength take home system also produces excellent results but in a more gradual manner. Our take home kit may be prescribed alone, or after an in-office treatment to perfect or maintain the in-office result. At Smiles Etcetera, we offer numerous cosmetic services in additional to general, family dentistry. If you have been considering whitening your teeth for a winning smile, call us today for an appointment.
