You’ve likely heard of most dental restoration options. Dental crowns, bridges, dentures, and even dental implants are fairly well known.

These restorative dentistry solutions allow us to maximize existing dental structures and keep smiles whole and healthy. Inlays and onlays offer patients a middle ground between fillings to repair very small areas and dental crowns to repair the whole tooth.

The opening and closing of your jaw probably isn’t something you think about very often (or at all), but it’s a pretty complex thing! The action is all centered around the temporomandibular joint, or the TMJ. When everything is right with the TMJ, you can chew, speak, smile and sing along in the car whenever the mood strikes. But when something’s wrong with either of the joints, you feel it — and pain, headaches and difficulty moving the jaw are soon to follow. Fortunately, Dr. King Scott offers TMJ therapy in West Monroe, LA. Keep reading for more on the condition and its treatment.

Dr. L. King Scott and his team understand that your days are long and busy. Between work and school, family and friends, there hardly seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything done. And by the end of the day, all you want is your comfy bed and soft pillow. There is, however, one more important thing you have to do before your go to bed. Your nightly oral hygiene routine is critically important not only to your oral health, but your general health, too. And that routine must include flossing. Brushing your teeth alone does not remove the plaque that can build up between your teeth throughout the day. Proper flossing helps to remove this plaque, which if left to accumulate can lead to gum disease and systemic ailments.
