Can teeth whitening really work?

If you have ever tried teeth whitening kits from a store, you might wonder if it even works. That’s because those store-bought kits need to make their stuff weaker in order to be sold without a prescription. Thankfully, you can get professional teeth whitening at our Birmingham, AL dental office. KöR teeth whitening can get you the dazzlingly white smile you want, either at our office or at your home.

What is TMD and how is it treated?

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) is a painful condition that affects the TMJ, facial nerves, and jaw muscles. You may experience pain when biting, difficulty opening and closing your mouth, popping sounds, among other symptoms. If you have any of these symptoms, come see us at Perrigo Dental Care for an evaluation.

We will offer you care that will help give your TMJ a rest, which is often all that is needed! Once we ease the strain on your TMJ, you will see an improvement in your pain. If not, we will continue to work until we find a solution for your headaches and jaw pain!

What should I do if I’m having trouble chewing?

Trouble chewing can become a serious problem. Come to Perrigo Dental Care and we will evaluate your case and what is causing you to have trouble chewing. We will make sure to offer the best treatment for your needs.

How can I prevent gum disease?

Preventing gum disease is the secret to keeping your natural teeth for the rest of your life! This very common, and often complex, infection occurs in about 80% of Americans, yet it is highly preventable.

Be sure to brush well at least twice each day, and floss really well at least once each day. You might also consider adding an antibacterial mouth rinse to your regimen. These things will help you at home, but the best way to prevent gum disease is to maintain semi-annual dental cleanings. Learn more on our Dental Cleanings and Exams page!
