Common Dental Concerns in Austin, TX
Do your gums bleed?
If your gums bleed when flossing or brushing your teeth, it could be a sign of gum disease. Many patients may not realize that they could be developing a serious case of periodontitis, because they do not recognize the symptoms soon enough. While bleeding gums can be preventable with good oral hygiene and routine dental visits, we offer many options that can remove the infection and effectively clean your teeth.

Do you have crooked teeth?
Are you looking for a straighter smile? Invisalign, porcelain veneers, and tooth bonding are all great cosmetic dental treatments for correcting crooked teeth. It may be difficult to clean between crooked or misaligned teeth. So it’s important to straighten them with clear aligners to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Tooth bonding is an economical alternative to porcelain veneers. These options brighten teeth and make them look more uniform. Learn about crooked teeth treatments here.
Do you experience frequent headaches?
Do you suffer from chronic headaches? You may have a TMJ disorder, bruxism, or sleep apnea. We can help you address these dental problems with oral appliances. Oral appliances are a great treatment option that can help take the pressure off of the jaw and keep teeth from grinding together. In addition, oral appliances open up the airway so tissues can’t collapse. Learn about headache therapy here.
Do you have missing teeth?
If you have lost one or many teeth, you are prone to tooth decay, shifting teeth, and facial sagging. A consultation can help you find the restorative dental treatment that’s right for you. Dental implants, a dental bridge, and full or partial dentures are some of the options that can help you achieve a healthier smile. Learn about missing teeth treatments here.
If you are snoring or wake up tired, you may be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. This common type of sleep apnea occurs when soft tissue collapses into the back of the throat, causing an obstruction in the upper airway. Dr. Wainwright works with patients to identify the oral signs of a sleep disorder. He will give you the proper medical diagnosis and care. Oral appliance therapy is often the most helpful for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea. Learn about sleep apnea treatment here.
Do you grind your teeth?
Because it often occurs during sleep, most people are unaware that they grind their teeth. In fact, many learn that they grind their teeth at night from a loved one. However, a dull, constant headache or sore jaw when you wake up is a telltale symptom of bruxism, or teeth grinding. Learn about treatments for teeth grinding here.
