Having facial or jaw pain spreading to the neck or shoulders? Suffering from ear pain like ringing in the ears (tinnitus) or hearing loss? Hear sounds when the joints move such as clicking, grating, and popping. Or your mouth is swelling on a single side?

Having a headache and dizziness that is leading to vomit or nausea?

smile infinity tmj disoreder 2.jpgFinally, you get to know about this surprising reason and how it can be treated.

 

 

It is called “TMJ Syndrome” (Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome) and it has many causes such as:

  •  Trauma is divided into Microtrauma and Macrotrauma.
    Microtrauma is internal. Grinding the teeth (Bruxism) and clenching (jaw tightening). Hammering on the temporomandibular joint change the alignment of the teeth. If muscles get involved it causes inflammation of the membranes surrounding the joint. Rubbing and pressing on your teeth are habits that may be diagnosed in people who have pain in the temporomandibular joint or have facial pain that includes the muscles involved in chewing.
    Macrotrauma is an impact accident. Can break the jawbone. cause dislocation of the TMJ. Damage the cartilage disc of the joint. Pain in the TMJ can be brought on by dental work whereby the joint is stretched open for extended periods of time. Massage and heat application can be helpful after the dental procedure.

  •   Osteoarthritis: The jaw joint is prone to arthritic changes. These changes are sometimes caused by a breakdown of the joint or the usual wear and tear of normal aging. The degenerative joint disease causes a slowly progressive loss of cartilage and formation of new bone at the surface of the joint. Cartilage destruction is a result of several mechanical and biological factors rather than a single entity. Its prevalence increases with repetitive microtrauma or macrotrauma. As well as with normal aging immunologic and inflammatory diseases contribute to the progression of the disease.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis causes inflammation in joints and could affect the TMJ. As it progresses. The disease can cause a destruction of cartilage, erode bone, and eventually cause joint deformity. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease. It causes disease in a variety of organs with features of persistent joint inflammation. It occasionally affects the TMJ, especially in young children.
  • Other causes of TMJ syndrome include infection of the joint, cancer, and bone deformity that occurs at birth.
    smile infinity tmj disorder 1.jpg
    TMJ has many treatment options.
    For chronic TMJ syndrome includes a dentist, ENT surgeon, pain specialist, physiotherapist, and a primary care physician. Modalities used to relieve pain and restore the function of the TMJ may include the use of splints, physical therapy, psychological counseling, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, and arthrocentesis.While treating bruxism, the doctor may fit you with a splint or bite plate which is a plastic guard that fits over your upper or lower teeth, much like a mouth guard in sports. It can help reduce clenching and teeth grinding, especially if worn while sleeping. This will ease muscle tension. The splint should not increase your pain and if it does, do not use it!
    Surgery is never the first choice treatment for TMJ syndrome. Arthrocentesis entails the use of a needle to clean and irrigate the joint. During the procedure, the surgeon may inject a local anesthetic or asteroid into the joint. Arthroscopy surgery is done when there is suspicion of an internal problem with the TMJ. It does require anesthesia and has a high success rate in resolving pain.Anyone with chronic TMJ syndrome is referred for physical therapy that helps restore joint mobility increasing muscle strength, and relieve pain.

What are the types of braces?

Dental braces are devices used by the dentist to align and straighten patient’s teeth and help position them to fix the bite, while also aiming to improve dental health. Braces also fix gaps. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. Often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws.
Braces have a constant pressure which, over time, move teeth into the desired positions.

Types:

– Traditional Metal Braces

are the most common type of braces. These braces have a metal bracket with elastic holding the wire onto the metal brackets.

SMILE INFINITY TRADITIONAL BRACES.jpg

Traditional Braces

 

Self-ligating braces

They are made from the same materials as traditional braces. However, these braces do not require the use of elastics, which means, fewer appointments and less friction being placed on the tooth. Self-ligating braces come with traditional metal, ceramic, or clear brackets. They use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide teeth to place. The clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth and requires fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.

– Clear or ceramic braces

Serve as a cosmetic alternative to traditional metal braces, by blending into the natural color of the teeth. Typically, these brackets are made of ceramic function in a similar manner to traditional metal brackets. Clear elastic ties and white metal ties are available to be used with these clear braces to help keep the appliances less conspicuous.

Clear Ceramic Braces

– Lingual Braces

A cosmetic alternative to traditional metal braces, except that the brackets and wires are placed on the inside of teeth making them externally invisible.

– Invisalign

Bits of Advice that should be followed during the treatment:
The aligners must be worn 24/7 except for eating and brushing teeth.
It’s important to brush your teeth after every meal to avoid discoloring or staining.
– New aligners are needed every 2 weeks

What is Smile Infinity Computerized Dentistry Veneers? (Hollywood Smile) Procedure and costs Dubai, Lebanon, Jeddah, Tunisia, Erbil, Michigan, Algeria, Canada, Senegal

Porcelain Veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are attached to the front of the teeth for a smile makeover. Individually crafted for each patient, these cosmetic improvements are made from an advanced material that has a similar appearance of natural dental enamel. Dentists can use veneers for a spectacular number of cosmetic corrections, maybe it’s for teeth whitening or an orthodontic adjustment.
Smile Infinity® computerized dentistry veneers are one of the most trusted and popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry.

Those thin contact lenses are a treatment that corrects many things including:

  • Misaligned teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Yellow teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

and many more…


The patient can determine his/her candidacy for veneers by scheduling an appointment with a “skilled” cosmetic dentist. After evaluating health history, current dental health, and the condition of a patient’s enamel, the dentist can make a decision regarding a patient’s suitability for this treatment.

Remember! If a patient has tooth decay, gum disease or root canal infection typically do not qualify for veneers, until all those issues are fixed, you will be able to stick the porcelain lenses on your teeth.

Tooth Decay

Veneers have several types. But the most advanced, realistic, and durable materials are the CEREC® fabricated veneers which are made at Smile Infinity®.

Smile Infinity® Computerized Dentistry Veneers are 0.2mm thin, 30% resistant and stronger than any other technique, lasts up to 15 years, and a warranty of 5 years!

1242152777 cereccc.jpg

CAD/CAM CEREC®

We use CEREC® technology for a faster process to create dental veneers. After analyzing the CAD/CAM images and making necessary adjustments, the dentist sends the images to a milling system. Much like a 3-D printer, the machine creates customized veneers from a single block of porcelain in a matter of minutes. The dentist selects the shade of porcelain that most closely matches a patient’s teeth. The dentist can further personalize the restorations by painting or polishing the material.
This procedure is done with NO PAIN, NO DRILLS, NO ANESTHESIA

The cost of Smile Infinity® computerized dentistry veneers varies from patient to patient, although costs typically are around several hundred dollars per tooth. Depends on the number of veneers a patient chooses to have placed. (For more information about prices, fill the form here and our international office will contact you for all the details)

Porcelain Lenses

Veneers have a beautiful natural look, but to better ensure the great results, patients should be highly selective in choosing their dentist. Although many dentists offer veneers, the best results are more likely to come from those who have an extensive background in cosmetic dentistry and veneers.

PS: A bad smile can ruin your confidence and self-esteem. Thanks for inventing those Porcelain veneers that will help you, bringing that confidence back by showing off those beautiful pearly natural whites!

Treating tooth decay or cavities at Smile Infinity® is a different case!

Tooth decay, or dental caries, are yellow or dark spots found on your tooth that can cause you pain and difficulty while eating, comes from food with carbohydrates like soda, cake, candy, cereal and all sugary that stays on your teeth turns bacteria in your mouth into acids. The bacteria, food debris, acid, and saliva combine to form plaque which holds on to the teeth. The acids in plaque dissolve the enamel, creating holes and signs of the cavities!

1200px-Dental_Caries_Cavity_2.JPG

Tooth Decay

When you see signs of a cavity, directly contact your dentist to fix it because if a cavity is not treated it will destroy a good part of the tooth and if a lot of the tooth is gone, only a dental crown can restore it!

If the decay’s bacteria reach the pulp chamber, it will become irritated and infected because this is where the blood vessels and the nerve is located and this case will lead to an abscess, which can be very painful and only a root canal can fix it, probably followed by a crown for a final restoration! And if you do not care about treating your teeth… It will cause you a much bigger problem where the cavity damages too much of your tooth, and unfortunately, it will need to be extracted. tooth definition.jpg
Well, Root canal treatment at Smile infinity clinics is a virtually pain-free way to eliminate the often agonizing pain of an infected or highly inflamed tooth and may help to prevent worsening pain or infection. It is a highly skilled area of dentistry and generally using the laser to complete an EndoLase procedure which provides very conservative treatment of the anatomy of the inside of the tooth, that is why Laser Endo and Microscopic Endo are options at our clinics for conservative treatment and best results.

 

micro dentistry

Microscope

 

A dental microscope is at its core an optical instrument, which allows the dentist to see enhanced details in order to work as precisely as possible. Therefore, there should be no compromise concerning the optical components. Only superior optical quality with excellent clarity offers high resolution, large depth of field, and maximum light transmission. This is indispensable for a successful root canal treatment as the root canals are in most cases not rectilinear and have cavities and tiny ramifications, which are difficult to detect without high magnification and depth of field. Accurate color representation is also required for easy differentiation of anatomical details.

Today, videos and images play an ever-increasing role in the dental practice for many reasons.
Firstly, during a procedure, live on-screen video can help the assistant to support the dental surgeon.
Secondly, a video is a useful training tool either during or post-treatment, additionally, it can be shared with the wider dental community online or at seminars.
Thirdly, video can support patient relationships and trust, as the dentist can show the patient what he sees which take them through the steps of a procedure and thus include them in consultation and treatment.
Finally, video and images can be included in a patient’s file for more thorough documentation and to facilitate easy review. Ease of transfer to a practice documentation system and the ability to save different file formats are therefore further key considerations.
