Do you experience chronic jaw pain or headaches, particularly in the morning? Are your teeth showing signs of excessive wear? You may have bruxism, a condition where you grind or clench your teeth while you sleep. This can cause problems with the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull and damage your teeth. Luckily, Dr. Camenzuli can diagnose and treat this condition with advanced adjustments and splints. These appliances put your teeth in a position that relaxes the jaw muscles and keeps the upper and lower teeth from touching.

In the past, when a dentist found a problem in a patient’s mouth, the patient often had to trust the dentist’s word without being able to view the problem for themselves. With an intraoral camera, we are able to take images of the inside of your mouth and show you on chairside screens exactly what we see. Armed with this information, you are able to make better decisions with much more confidence.
Sometimes dental problems lay beneath the gum surface. Infections and decay can cause harm to your smile outside the view of the naked eye. That’s why we take X-rays on a regular basis to check in hard-to-view areas of your mouth, such as between teeth and tooth roots. Our digital technology allows us to see the images almost immediately and expose you to far less radiation than traditional X-rays. Digital X-rays are also most eco-friendly because we no longer need to use harsh chemicals to develop the images.
CT/Cone Beam Scanner
As valuable and useful as digital X-rays are for diagnosing cavities and other problems, they do not show all your oral structures. To get a more thorough view of blood vessels, nerves, bone, and more, we use a CT cone beam scanner. This device produces a 3D image that allows us to plan ahead for complex procedures, such as dental implant placement, and avoid complications during the procedure. In the end, this leads to faster healing and more successful outcomes.
