Dental Concerns in Charlottesville, Virginia

Dental Concerns in Charlottesville, VA

Learn about common concerns that many patients have as well as how we treat these concerns in our office:

Bleeding Gums

Do your gums bleed when you brush and floss your teeth? You may be brushing your teeth too aggressively or you may have gingivitis. Gingivitis, or gum inflammation, is an early form of gum disease. Along with bleeding gums, patines may experience gum sensitivity, red or purple-tinged gums, or irritated gums. Visit our office if your gums continue to bleed, even if you brush and floss gently. We offer deep cleaning treatments to remove bacteria buildup that contributes to gum inflammation and gum disease.

Bruxism

Also known as teeth clenching and grinding, bruxism is a symptom of TMJ disorders. These disorders lead to tooth damage and wear as well as jaw pain. Nightguards are the best option for patients with bruxism. Worn at night, these custom-made oral appliances prevent further tooth wear and relax the jaw.

Dental Anxiety

It can be difficult for many patients to visit the dentist on a regular basis. General anxiety or fear of the dentist can have many causes. Whether patients have had a negative prior experience or a fear of loud noises or dental procedures, we can help. Dr. Harrison’s dental office is a welcoming space where the dentists and office staff provide comprehensive care.

A common treatment method that can help nervous or anxious dental patients is dental sedation. Sedation is a safe method that calms patients for their dental procedures. Our team also welcomes patients to contact our office so we can accommodate their needs for their first appointment.

Missing Teeth

Have you just lost a permanent tooth? Do you have arches or rows of lost teeth? Dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures are high-quality restorations that replace one or more missing teeth. Implants may be used to replace a single tooth or secure a dental bridge or denture. A dental implant is made up of a titanium screw, abutment, and crown. An oral surgeon places the implant in the jawbone beneath the gums. If you have a removable bridge or denture, we can work with you to schedule implant surgery. Dental implants ensure that restorations last longer and look natural.
