If your teeth hurt when you drink hot or cold beverages, you may have sensitive teeth. This can be the result of tooth decay, fractured teeth, worn fillings, gum disease, worn tooth enamel or an exposed tooth root due to gum recession. Treatment will depend on the source of sensitivity. If youíre concerned about the sensitivity of your teeth see your dentist for diagnosis and treatment options.
– A Return to a Proper Bite Alignment
Dental malocclusion (a bad bite) can be the reason for
frequent headaches or popping jaws as well as pain in
the shoulders, neck, and jaws. When jaws do not settle
into a relaxed position, muscles become strained and
painful. Over time, a patient will become accustomed to
the pain and continue to live with it day after day. We
can help relieve these strains and pain by restoring
your dental occlusion to its proper alignment. Come into
our office and let us discuss the benefits of this
procedure so you can relieve this discomfort.
Types of mouth sores include canker sores, cold sores, leukoplakia and candidiasis. They vary in their severity and causes. Mouth sores could be the symptom of a disease or disorder; infection from bacteria, viruses or fungus or result from irritation caused by braces, dentures or the sharp edge of a broken tooth or filling. Your dentist should examine any mouth sore that lasts a week or longer.
You Fall Asleep on the Job?
Do you fall asleep unexpectedly during the day or snore
loudly during your sleep? Do you have interrupted
breathing while you sleep? You may have sleep apnea. The
traditional solution to halt these problems is the CPAP
device, which pumps air into the lungs through a mask
the patient wears over the nose and mouth. Although it
solves the problem, the mask is bulky and uncomfortable,
so many people stop wearing it and the problems from
sleep apnea return.
We offer you an easier solution with an oral appliance.
It is a small acrylic device that is placed over the
upper and lower teeth, similar to a retainer or
mouthguard. Once in place, the device gently realigns
the jaw and tongue to keep open the airway and allow the
flow of air into the lungs while you sleep. They are
easy to insert, remove, clean, and pack for traveling.
Their use has proven successful for more than 90% of
their users. If you have been diagnosed with sleep
apnea, please let us help you get a good night’s rest.

may have had a crown placed in your mouth, so you are
familiar with the routine of having a temporary
installed, waiting for the permanent crown to be made,
and then returning to the dentist to have it positioned
in your dental arch. Sometimes the fit isn’t right, so
it is the same wait and procedure again.
Dr. Tisoncik uses CEREC™ technology to give you a
perfect-fitting crown in just one visit! This system
uses a computer program to design and mill the
restoration. It will create the crown in just a few
minutes! The complete procedure from start to finish
takes only about an hour. So it is only one trip to the
dentist and no more waiting time. Our patients simply
love how natural it looks and how well it functions.
To start the process, a reflective powder is applied to
the tooth. With a special camera, a picture is taken and
viewed on our computer screen. This lets us design the
crown, which CEREC then automatically mills. The last
step is to bond the crown to the remaining tooth
structure. What could be easier or faster than having a
crown made with CEREC?
If your mouth or jaw hurt, it could be from a toothache. Toothaches usually indicate a cavity but they can also signal gum disease. In some cases, a toothache is a sign of an abscess or impacted tooth. A toothache should be evaluated by a dentist right away to determine the cause of the problem and prevent the tooth from dying.
