Save the date!

Mark your calendar!

Wedding season has arrived, and that means pictures — lots of pictures. Of the bride, the groom, the wedding party, family, friends ….

We could go on (and on), but you get the idea. Whether you are getting married, are part of a wedding party, or are an invited guest, there’s a good chance that you will be attending one or more weddings this summer.

That’s a good reason to contact Dietrich Dental Services to schedule a teeth whitening treatment before the big day. To contact our dentist office in Port Charlotte, FL, call 941-625-7877 or contact us online.

 

Whitening For The Bride And Groom

You want to look your best on your wedding day.

You may be working out harder and eating better in preparation for the big day. You’ve probably already picked out your dress or tuxedo. You may also have ideas in mind for your hair and makeup as well.

People will be taking pictures before, during, and after your ceremony. You’ll have plenty of reasons to smile on this most important day of your life (so far), so why not have the best-looking smile you can have?

You could try using the commercial whitening products you can find in the toothpaste aisle, but we’ve heard from countless patients who were disappointed with their results after using those products.

Instead, contact Dietrich Dental Services for an in-office professional teeth whitening treatment. In just a few visits, your smile can be noticeably whiter and brighter.

We also offer take-home whitening treatments that are more effective than anything you will find at the store. For a picture-worthy smile on your wedding day, let us show you what we can do.

 

Whitening For The Wedding Party

In some weddings, being part of the wedding party can be almost as much work as being in the wedding itself. You may be invited to wedding showers, any number of pre-wedding events, a bachelor or bachelorette party, and the wedding itself.

Some of these events will involve formal photography, and any or all of them will involve pictures posted to social media.

In today’s world, your picture could be shared with hundreds or thousands of people at any time. Be ready to flash your pearly whites with our professional teeth whitening. Whether it’s your own post or someone else’s, create a smile that is worth sharing.

 

Whitening For Everyone

While a wedding, a high school reunion or another big event can be a good reason to have your teeth whitened, there are everyday reasons as well.

White teeth make your smile look nicer. That’s something most of us agree with. It’s also normal for our teeth to become yellower and darker as we get older. After all, we are eating, drinking, nibbling, and sipping things on a daily basis that add to the stains on our teeth.

Cleaning up your smile can help you make a good first impression. This can be important when you are meeting someone for a job interview, on your first day of your new job, or as a possible romantic interest.

 

An Alternative To Teeth Whitening

We do want to point out that teeth whitening will be more effective for some people than others. Professional whitening products contain high concentrations of bleaching agents. This is what allows them to remove deep stains from your teeth in a short time.

If your teeth are discolored because of something other than stains, however, then whitening may offer little benefit for you. Fortunately, we so have another way to create a bright smile at our Port Charlotte, FL, dentist office.

Dental veneers can be bonded to the front of your teeth. This can transform the appearance of your smile as much or more than teeth whitening. Veneers can be used to conceal your discolored teeth and give you a smile that is as white and bright as you would like it to be.

If you already have dental fillings or dental crowns, that’s another reason whitening may not be as effective on your smile.

These are part of the reasons the American Dental Association recommends talking to your dentist before you begin any teeth whitening treatment. A dentist can help determine if your teeth are stained or if there are other issues that may make teeth whitening inadvisable.

To get started with your own consultation before your wedding or the next wedding you attend, call 941-625-7877 or contact us online.

Some symptoms of TMJ disorders are more apparent than others. You may not realize that other problems you are having start with your jaw.

One of our dentists in Port Charlotte, FL, can examine your mouth and help you determine if our TMJ treatments could help you. To make an appointment, call 941-625-7877 to reach Dietrich Dental Services or contact us online.

We don’t want you to be in pain. We are here to help.

Today, we want you to learn more about the symptoms of TMJ disorder, but first …

 

What Is TMJ?

TMJ is a shorter way of saying temporomandibular joint. You have two of these joints. They are located on each side of your head.

If you put your hands just below your ears, you will probably be able to feel these joints moving as you open and close your mouth.

TMJ disorders can develop as a result of alignment issues with your jaw, arthritis, injuries and illnesses, and teeth grinding. That last one is a particular concern for our dentists.

Grinding puts added pressure on your joint, and it can wear down the enamel of your teeth. This can make them more sensitive and more likely to become infected.

Millions of people grind or clench their teeth in their sleep. Many people also clench their teeth as a response to stress without realizing they are doing this. Teeth grinding also can put added pressure on the muscles and ligaments around your jaw.

 

4 TMJ Symptoms

Some symptoms of TMJ disorders may overlap with other conditions. For this reason, you may be experiencing problems without realizing they are connected to your jaw.

◼ Jaw mobility issues

We mostly take it for granted that we can move our jaws comfortably. When you are having trouble with your TMJ, that’s not always possible.

Swelling or inflammation around your jaw joints can make it difficult to open or close your mouth completely. Likewise, you may feel like you jaw is stuck at times. You also may feel like you jaw can be moved but only with real effort on your part.

You can understand how this could turn everyday activities like eating and speaking into a source of frustration.

◼ Jaw and facial pain

This can occur separately or alongside the mobility issues mentioned above.

It’s reasonable to understand that if something is wrong when your jaw, then it may cause pain in and around your TMJ. This jaw pain can affect different people in different ways. It may even affect the same person in different ways at different times.

These may be lingering pains that never seen to go away completely. These may be pains that develop or become more intense after heavy use of your jaw. It’s common for people with TMJ disorders to experience jaw pain during or shortly after meals, for example.

◼ Headaches and earaches

Earlier we asked you to hold your fingers below your ears to feel your TMJ moving.

Knowing this, it should not be surprising that people with TMJ issues often complain of frequent headaches and earaches.

Again, you may feel a pain more similar to a headache, including migraines. You may feel pains more like that of an earache. Or you may experience both kinds of pains at various times.

◼ Neck, shoulder, and upper back pain

As we noted earlier, it’s not just the jaw joint that can be affected by TMJ disorders. Your muscles can become strained as well.

And since your muscles are interconnected in many ways, the problem affecting your jaw can spread to neighboring muscle groups as well. This is why neck, shoulder, and upper back pains sometimes can be traced back to your jaw.

 

Taking Steps To Fight TMJ Trouble

Most of us will experience some TMJ problems during our lives. When these problems persist or recur frequently, then we should wonder if we have a TMJ disorder.

You may be able to address some minor TMJ issues on your own.

Over-the-counter pain medicine may relieve the jaw pain, headaches, or other pains you are experiencing. Eating softer foods for a short time can give your jaw time to recover. Heat can help improve jaw movement, and cold can reduce swelling.

If these efforts don’t help, then Dietrich Dental Services is here for you. Our dentists can help identify the causes of your TMJ problems. We also offer treatments that can help prevent the teeth grinding that is contributing to your issues.

You can call our Port Charlotte dentist office at 941-625-7877 or you can contact us online.
