Life happens. You spend too many late nights at the office and fall into bed without brushing your teeth. You drink too many cans of your favorite soda. You play weekend football a little too rough and tumble. Chewing ice is an indulgence you can’t resist. Or you just keep canceling your dental appointments because they make you way too nervous.
Even if you have perfect hygiene, visit the dentist regularly, watch your diet, and protect your teeth, everyday life or uncontrollable circumstances can induce damage.
- Common health issues like dry mouth or hormonal imbalances can lead to gum infection and tooth decay
- Stress can incite dental clenching and grinding which causes wear, breakage, and gum recession
- Even tooth structure, genetics, and age play a major role in the health and strength of your teeth
Joseph Cochran, DDS would like to help. Our restorative dentistry options, combined with our gentle and compassionate approach can help everyone—even the most nervous dental-phobe—bring their smiles back to health, strength, and perfection.
Healthy Teeth Matter
It’s easy to take your teeth for granted when they are healthy. But let something happen to your teeth and suddenly they are all you are aware of. Your teeth don’t just give you an attractive appearance, they also help you speak, act as the initial part of your digestive system, aid in saliva production, keep your jawbone stimulated and vital, and protect you from overall health problems like TMJ disorder and nutritional deficiencies. Clearly, getting your teeth back into the shape nature intended is an important part of your overall wellness and confidence!
A Treatment Plan Just for You
If you find yourself in need of restorative dentistry, you don’t have to figure out what to do on your own—or be dictated to by a dental clinician either. Dr. Cochran believes that since you are the one who has to live with the health, appearance, and function of your teeth, you should be part of planning your treatment. Our team loves working with patients to come up with just the right plan to fit your schedule, budget, and comfort level. Even if you just need a simple filling, we will help you decide how and when to deal with it. In the end, your smile will be stronger, brighter, and work just the way it should for your healthy and active lifestyle.
