Palatine TMD Dentist

Respected Palatine TMD Dentist for TMJ Symptoms Treatment

If you are constantly bothered by a sore jaw, you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder. TMJ symptoms can include a clicking jaw, a popping sound when you chew or speak, and a sore jaw when you first wake.

Palatine area TMJ symptoms dentists Dr. Unti can help you get started on a short-term and long-term plan to alleviate much of the pain and discomfort you're experiencing. We also provide cosmetic dentistry, dental implants and braces.

But what causes TMJ disorder? Some contributing factors may include injuries to the jaw area, certain forms of arthritis, low-level infections and certain dental procedures. Untreated dental problems (crooked teeth, gum disease) can also lead to TMJ symptoms. At Palatine Complete Dental we're committed to listening to you and working with you to develop a plan to treat your jaw discomfort.

Dr. Unti will develop a treatment plan that's right for you, which may include restoration of certain teeth that may be contributing to the problem, attention to proper gum maintenance, pain relief, and a concerted effort to identify the underlying causes of your TMJ symptoms. Many of our Palatine area patients have discovered that relief can be obtained from simple changes in their eating and sleeping habits, although more advanced cases may require surgery.

If you're looking for Palatine TMD symptoms dentistry, call Dr. Unti today at (847) 359-7520. Or fill out our online form for easy scheduling. At Palatine Complete Dental, we have several payment options and we're available when it's convenient for you.

Do You Have Sensitive Teeth?

Millions of adults struggle with hypersensitive teeth, meaning they are sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, very sugary or acidic foods and drinks and vigorous tooth brushing. Above the gum line, dentin is protected with a coating of enamel. Unfortunately, as enamel is worn away or decayed, dentin becomes exposed and receptive to sensations that cause painful nerve responses.

This can also occur as the result of receding gums, a common symptom of gum disease. If your teeth are sensitive, please call Palatine Complete Dental today at (855) 673-4296 to schedule a consultation.

Finding the Perfect Toothpaste

From whitening to ultra-sensitive, there are a multitude of toothpastes available on today's market. How do you choose? Start by selecting one with fluoride, which will prevent cavities. Other things to consider are flavor, whitening potential, tartar control and price. Often the biggest difference between two brands is packaging, so don't get hung up on the finer details. Consider selecting fun flavored toothpaste for children, as it will encourage them to brush regularly.

Very young children require a fluoride-free variety for safety. Call us at (855) 673-4296 and Dr. Michael Unti will be happy to recommend a toothpaste that’s right for your family.

Teeth Grinding or Bruxism Can Be Treated

There are a number of things you can do if you feel either you or somebody you love is suffering from nighttime teeth grinding or bruxism. For starters, try to alleviate whatever stress in your life you can. Kick the tobacco habit and heavy drinking, and try not to drink too much coffee.

Severe cases may need to be fitted with a mouth guard or have their teeth reshaped to eliminate unusual alignment. If you feel you may be suffering from bruxism, call Palatine Complete Dental at (855) 673-4296 to schedule a consultation.
