You broke a tooth while enjoying some tortilla chips at a backyard barbeque – it hurts, and doesn’t look so great, either. You want to get this addressed, but you’re worried that your dentist in Owasso might just want to extract the whole tooth, leaving an unsightly gap in your smile. But when you work with the team at Drake & Voto Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, they offer other solutions – like a dental crown in Owasso or a dental crown-and-bridge combo. In this post, they explain how these restorative treatments can save your smile.

Poor sleep quality and quantity during pregnancy can disrupt an otherwise healthy baby from developing without issues. Disruptions in sleep can lead to lower birth weights, a lessened immune system, and other complications like depression in the mother. This can turn into a double-ended sword since poor sleep can lead to depression and depression can backlash and interrupt good sleeping habits. What if you could avoid all of these potential problems for you and your baby by identifying your sleep disorder? Believe it or not, your Owasso dentist is probably the best professional to assist you with this health problem. Obstructive sleep apnea may be the cause of your restlessness and snoring throughout the night.

However, your self-esteem is not the only area to be impacted by an incomplete smile. Each tooth in your mouth plays an important role in oral functions and oral health. When even one tooth is lost, you will begin to experience significant changes to your quality of life. Not to mention, your facial structures will change over time. As a dentist in Owasso, we encourage you to replace your missing teeth.

Opening and closing your mouth to eat or to speak is a function that most of us take for granted. And why not? We’ve all been doing it since the moment we were born. However, for some people the simple action of opening or closing your mouth can be painful. Hinges on either side of your face connect your upper and lower jaws. These hinges are medically referred to as your temporomandibular joints. Elements of this complex hinge can malfunction or be thrown out of alignment. When this happens professional care may be necessary. At Drake & Voto Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Jayson Voto treats TMJ in Owasso with either oral appliance therapy or Botox injections.
