Halloween Candy

Halloween is coming and, while this year may look different as far as trick-or-treating goes, the impact sugar-laden treats have on both your natural teeth and dental work will be just the same. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t enjoy the holiday or the sweet treats it comes with, but rather that you should take time to care for your teeth in order to help prevent issues like sensitivity, decay, and infection.

Migraine or TMJ?

Migraine headaches are often intense. They can come on alone or with increased sensitivity to sight and sound, nausea and vomiting, and visual effects like an aura. They can last for days. They do not always respond to medication.

What Happens if TMJ Is Left Untreated?

TMJ may refer to a number of disorders that cause the jaw to become misaligned. The most common symptoms of TMJ are:

  • Clicking or popping noises when opening and closing the mouth
  • Grinding noises when chewing
  • Pain in and around the jaw
  • Swelling around the jaw joint

These symptoms should be brought to the immediate attention of Dr. Evola. Prompt treatment can help eliminate discomfort while preventing the more serious consequences of untreated TMJ.

Emergency Dentistry Services

Are you experiencing a dental emergency? Toothache, a lost filling or loose crown, a broken or cracked tooth, or any issue causing discomfort, pain, or limited biting and chewing capacity should be brought to the immediate attention of Dr. Evola. Even if you are not an existing patient, we will make every effort to get you into our office for same-day emergency dental services.

Dental Implants

If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants may be the best solution. Made of titanium, dental implants are used to replace missing tooth roots, enabling them to provide a secure and reliable hold for restorations such as dental bridges, dentures, and porcelain crowns. In the short video below, Buffalo implant dentist Dr. Larry Evola discusses what dental implants are and how they can be used to strengthen and beautify your smile.
