Do you wake up with headaches, sore teeth, or experience fatigue while chewing? If so, you may suffer from TMD (tempromandibular disorder) Our dental team is trained in diagnosing and treating jaw, muscle and tooth pain.
Our dental exam includes a comprehensive evaluation of the major chewing muscles to identify nighttime or daytime clenching habits. We also evaluate the different wear patterns on the teeth to help create long term treatment plans. Our goal is to diagnose and treat TMD utilizing the most successful nonsurgical treatment options.
We fabricate three different occlusal guards to treat mild, moderate and severe clenching/grinding. Effectively paired with at-home treatments, we reduce pain and headaches while improving function and quality of life.
Our patient care coordinator will help you with billing your medical insurance so that our patients minimize out of pocket expenses while maximizing comfort!
Dental implants are a beautiful, functional and predictable option to replace missing teeth. Their versatility, paired with an expert dental team, can provide lifelong restorations you enjoy at least three times a day!
Implants are often used to replace a singe tooth that never developed, or one that had to be removed. There are many scenarios where dental implants can improve a patients quality of life. Sometimes, implants are a more cost effective option to fix heavily broken down teeth. With predictable results and high success rates, Dr. Pollan can provide the most current treatment options for patients, and offer solutions for various dental needs.
We brush and floss implants like teeth, and they function and fit so nice you might forget they are there! Once a tooth is missing or is planned for an extraction, a dental implant can be a great option to restore your smile. Implants are placed directly into the bone and covered to allow healing. Once integrated, a crown, bridge or denture can be placed onto the implant and it functions like a natural tooth. Best of all, with over 90% success rates, dental implants can last a lifetime!
