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.

Got questions about your Invisalign treatment in Owasso? We’ve got answers.
Q: What do I do if I break one of my Invisalign trays?
Dr. Voto: When one of your Invisalign trays becomes damaged in any way (warped, broken, cracked, whatever it may be) contact your dentist immediately. Your Invisalign tray can’t work properly if it doesn’t fit your teeth like it was designed to do, so a replacement will need to be made. Call as soon as possible to make sure your teeth don’t shift back into the wrong position while you wait for your replacement.

People with missing teeth have difficulty doing certain things that most people are fortunate to take for granted. Like eating and talking. Just one missing tooth—to say nothing of several—can make chewing some foods a challenge. As a consequence, malnourishment may become a very real concern. Also, teeth play a critical role in a person’s ability to speak clearly and enunciate words. If teeth are missing, then a person may be reluctant to talk. The result is lowered self-esteem and confidence, both of which can have adverse effects in both social and professional settings. Thus, the need to replace missing teeth is crucial for physical and emotional well-being. You have several options to choose from for tooth replacement, but one of the best is a dental implant. At Drake & Voto in Owasso, OK, our dentists have restored smiles and confidence for many patients with beautiful and comfortable dental implants.

Your jaw is one of the most complex systems in your entire oral area. There are many bones and structures that work together to make your jaw move up and down and go side to side. Whenever you’re dealing with sore joints or other painful areas, it can leave your entire mouth in severe pain. This pain can cause you to pass on eating, brushing your teeth and more. Did you know that the joints located in front of the ears are the most-used in your entire body? They’re barely larger than the size of a quarter. It’s these areas that we concentrate on to bring harmony back to your jaw structure.
Dr. Drake and Dr. Voto are two dentists Owasso, OK area residents can trust, and they’re committed to bringing you jaw relief for good. When the TMJ joints, or temporomandibular joints, function properly, opening and closing your mouth becomes a cinch. When they’re not in great shape and are functioning improperly, chronic headaches and persistent facial pain are two of the most common side effects.
