There are many choices on the Palouse for your dental needs, but there isn’t many dentists that will care for you like Dr. Hansen and his staff. Dr. Hansen goes above and beyond with his sincere and excellent care. To be honest, I don’t love the dentist- but Dr. Hansen and his staff make it the best it can be. Another thing- many area dentists look for a reason to do thousands of dollars of work in your mouth- upon intake Dr. Hansen takes the time to get to know you and what level of dental care you are comfortable with- if you want every single thing fixed…you got it. If you’re like me and don’t want to fix it until it needs fixing…you got it! Thank you Dr. Hansen and staff!
Stop Teeth Grinding to Keep Your Teeth & Implants Intact
There are many reasons for a TMJ disorder, such as chronic teeth grinding, alignment issues, jaw injury, or arthritis. Whatever the cause, Dr. Hansen has a simple and effective solution: a mouthguard. It will act as a barrier between your teeth and stop you from putting pressure on your jaw. While there are many store-bought solutions, a custom-made mouthguard gives you unique benefits:
- Long-Lasting – Our mouthguard can last you for years with proper care. You won’t have to keep replacing it every few months.
- Easy to Wear – Your oral appliance is comfortable and customized for you. You’ll barely notice you are wearing it!
- Durable – A store-bought bite guard can crack easily. A custom bite guard will better withstand the force of your clenching or grinding.
In addition to a mouthguard, other treatments may be effective at relieving your TMJ pain. Orthodontic treatment can correct alignment problems that trigger this disorder. We offer clear aligners, which can straighten your teeth in about 12 to 18 months. It even works for patients with implants! Dr. Hansen may also recommend other restorative treatments to repair uneven or misaligned teeth. His goal is to ensure you have a smile that functions properly.
