Fix dental problems in Hoffman Estates, Illinois

Bleeding Gums: If your gums bleed when you brush or floss your teeth, you may have periodontal disease. Periodontitis is a gum infection that can damage the gums and even cause tooth loss in the most severe cases. The condition develops from the infection of gum tissue. Plaque can inflame the gums which cause them to bleed easily. As the infection progresses, pockets form between teeth, loosening them or causing them to fall out. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults and may also be to blame for other dental problems that impact the teeth and gums. Consider periodontal therapy in our dentist office in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.

Crooked Teeth: Do you want to straighten your crooked teeth? Straightening teeth not only improves the appearance of your smile but can also stop dental problems from developing. Crooked teeth may increase the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, jaw and bite disorders, gum recession, headaches, worn teeth, and broken teeth. Clear braces, tooth bonding, and porcelain veneers can be used to straighten crooked teeth for a more balanced and healthy smile.

Headaches: If you suffer from chronic headaches you may have a TMJ disorder. Temporomandibular joint disorders cause pain in the jaw joint and muscles. TMJ disorders can be treated with oral appliances which are custom-made mouthguards that keep teeth from grinding together. They can be worn at night to keep teeth protected from further wear and tear. If you have excessive tooth damage or wear and tear from grinding your teeth as a result of a TMJ disorder, Dr. Patel may recommend cosmetic treatment. Tooth bonding or dental crowns can be used to repair damage and improve the aesthetics of your smile. Restorative treatments such as dental implants can also be used for severe cases of TMJ.

Missing Teeth: Missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures and partials. Single missing teeth or whole arches of teeth can be replaced utilizing dental implants. Dental implants consist of a titanium post which is inserted into the jawbone. After a period of 3 to 6 months, a permanent abutment and dental crown are added for a permanent restoration. One or more teeth can be replaced with dental bridges. This option can be removable or secured in place with dental implants. Dental bridges can also utilize surrounding natural teeth to secure and replace consecutive missing teeth. Multiple teeth or the upper and lower arches of teeth can be replaced with dentures or partial dentures. Like dental bridges, dentures can be removable or secured by dental implants. Dr. Patel also offers all-on-four dental implants which are used to secure dentures.
