For general dentistry services, we focus on maintaining your oral health and educating you about proper hygiene habits. A big part of good oral hygiene is scheduling general dental appointments no less than every six months. This is to prevent major complications to your health from developing and spreading.

TMJ and Bruxism Treatment
TMJ disorders are a common problem that can lead to severe pain in your jaw muscles, among other complications. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include lockjaw, headaches, and clicking sounds when you open or close your mouth.
A common cause of TMJ disorders is bruxism, a condition that describes excessive grinding or clenching of your teeth. Beyond TMJ dysfunction, bruxism can also wear down the enamel in your teeth and lead to gum disease.
For both of these issues, we offer protective “Night Guards” to minimize pain and protect your bite. Learn more about treating TMJ and bruxism problems.
Though it’s always our last resort, there are certain situation when removing a tooth is necessary. Often, extractions are performed to prepare you for a restorative treatment, such as dental implants.
For patients planning on having implants placed, we recommend a tooth socket graft procedure. This involves using special bioengineered bone material to preserve existing bone and support healthy growth. This will provide strong support for your replacement tooth.
After a tooth extraction, it’s important to follow Dr. Cooper’s instructions if you want a smooth recovery. Learn more about tooth removal.
