Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)

by Stephanie Meadows
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most heavily utilized joints in the human body. Mechanically, the TMJ is what allows you to open and close your mouth, and to a lesser extent, extend and move your jaw from side to side. Functionally, it facilitates eating, talking, and facial expressions. Like so many parts of the human body, the TMJ usually only receives attention when something goes wrong.

Tooth Decay and Fillings

Tooth Decay and Fillings

by Stephanie Meadows
When we were younger, and even up until now, the dentist told us to always brush our teeth twice a day, as our oral hygiene is important for a healthy smile, but our overall health as well. Even after trying our best to prevent cavities or tooth decay, sometimes the dentist finds a little cavity or two at a cleaning or check-up.

Why You Shouldn't be scared of a Root Canal

Why You Shouldn't be scared of a Root Canal

by Shearly (SU)
Hearing the words “root canal” don’t usually make people feel warm and fuzzy, but in a way, maybe they should. Because if you have been living with the pain of an infected or badly damaged tooth, a root canal may provide the relief you need. Besides which, modern dentistry has changed in recent years. There are more ways to safely and painlessly care for your teeth than there were even 10 years ago. Ultra-modern dental techniques can make an endodontic treatment (root canal) seem like a routine visit to the dentist’s office. A little information can go a long way towards not being afraid of a root canal anymore.
