How can we help you?
Information and education are the keys to good health. Just as we believe in continuing education for ourselves, we recommend that our patients learn about their dental health. We are always happy to discuss your care with you, and we will never perform a procedure until you’ve been informed about the procedure we are treating and have given us your approval to proceed.
If you have a question, take a look at this selection of questions we are often asked about our practice, the services we offer, and dentistry in general. If your question isn’t answered here or if you need more information, you are always welcome to give us a call or send us an email using our convenient online form.
Whether or not your insurance covers a certain procedure largely depends on the procedure as well as your insurance plan. You can call your insurance directly to get specific details as to what is covered and what is not. If you need assistance with this, we are always happy to help and work with your insurance company to maximize your benefits. Do not hesitate to direct any questions, comments or concerns to your Royal Oak, MI office.
As unlikely as it may seem, oral appliance therapy for migraine headaches is incredibly effective!
For many people, migraines are triggered by tension in the facial muscles, which then irritates the nerves. This tension is caused when the person clenches his or her teeth at night. Often, the person is not even aware that he or she is doing it!
We offer an appliance called the NTI-tss Plus. This appliance is worn between your front teeth while you sleep. It holds your jaws apart enough that you can't clench your teeth, which means that the muscle tension is alleviated, and the nerves are no longer irritated. In clinical trials, this appliance reduced migraines by 77% in 82% of the people who used it. We think that's pretty impressive. Plus, you don't have to deal with the side effects of migraine medications, which can include drowsiness and even rebound headaches.
If you suffer from migraines, call our office today to find out if this appliance can help you.
Simply adhering to a consistent daily oral care routine is not enough to keep one's oral health up to par. It is vital to visit your dentist on a consistent basis for a deeper professional cleaning. For most patients, we recommend a routine examination and cleaning every six months. If we are trying to treat a specific condition or perform restorative work, then you may need to be seen more frequently, and we will discuss this with you. Keep in mind as well that if you are feeling pain or discomfort in between visits to make an appointment with our practice right away.
