Dental implants are now the most preferred option for treating tooth loss when compared to traditional prosthetics, such as bridges and crowns or dentures. Dental implants allow you to permanently replace missing teeth using a prosthetic that’s surgically inserted into your jawbone. You’ll regain your ability to eat and speak with a complete smile that looks natural. As a result, you’ll help promote your oral health and bone density by giving your oral structures the support and stimulation they need. If you’re considering dental implants in Fremont, we have everything you need to know about the procedure.

Have you been experiencing jaw pain and feeling popping sounds when you move your jaw? Maybe you’ve been having headaches? The jaw symptoms and headaches may actually be related. TMJ disorders cause a wide range of symptoms, including soreness, popping, and headaches. A TMJ disorder occurs when pain and discomfort occur in the temporomandibular joint where the jaw connects to the skull. Usually the root cause is our facial muscles, because 90% of the pain we have has a muscular origin. While many believe the symptoms only impact the jaw joint, symptoms can radiate to the head, neck and even shoulders. If you’re experiencing symptoms of the disorder, you’ll need to see Dr. Block for TMJ treatment, in Fremont, to help identify the underlying cause for effective treatment.

With early detection, we can intervene promptly to reduce the severity of damage, allowing you to maintain healthy teeth longer.
