Many patients experience chronic or painful symptoms but don’t realize they may be caused by a treatable dental condition. Headaches, migraines and neck pain could be connected with disfunction in the Temporomandibular Joints (TMJ). Cosmetic concerns such as stained teeth or crooked teeth, may be caused by underlying functional or health problems. Here are some frequently described symptoms:

Bleeding Gums
This is classic signs of gum disease, which is estimated to affect 3 out of 4 American adults and is the leading cause of tooth loss. Dr. Grapevine uses sophisticated diagnostic equipment and comprehensive examination to determine if you have gum disease and then recommend treatment options.

Frequent Headaches
In some cases, headaches may be caused by or worsened by instability in the occlusion (bite). Aided by state-of-the-art diagnostic technology and experienced in treating TMJ disorders, Dr. Grapevine will perform a thorough evaluation and make treatment recommendations based on his findings.

Tooth Cavities
Dental cavities don’t just affect children. Adults can also have tooth cavities. Depending on the extent of the tooth decay, Dr. Grapevine offers a range of treatment options for cavities. If the decay is extensive, a root canal may be needed.

Missing Teeth
Tooth loss creates a range of problems for patients from emotional and social concerns to sometimes serious medical conditions. Whether you are missing teeth because of an injury or accident, gum disease, tooth decay, age or other reasons, come to Dr. Grapevine for comprehensive replacement options and expert care. Dr. Jacob Grapevine offers dental implants, dental bridges and dentures.

Crooked Teeth
Few people are born with a “perfect smile”. Dr. Grapevine offers many treatment options for straightening teeth without metal braces. Our treatment options include invisible braces from Invisalign or Smart Moves as well as treatment with dental crowns, porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding.

Teeth Grinding
An unstable bite can cause teeth to wear prematurely. Teeth grinding often causes tiny chips along the edge of the teeth, making them rough or jagged. Also, teeth that aren’t making proper contact can put unnecessary force or pressure on teeth, making them break down. Dr. Grapevine has special experience working with TMJ disorders and can examine your condition to make recommendations for repairing instability as well as any damage that may have been caused.

Cosmetic Concerns
Having a smile you’re proud to show off is very important and can boost self esteem and improve your quality of life. Smile enhancement can be as simple as teeth whitening or dramatic as a smile makeover. Dr. Grapevine is one of the most highly trained cosmetic dentists in the greater Dallas area. He has completed extensive training in restorative and cosmetic dentistry and offers a range of services to help you get the smile you deserve.

Metal Fillings
Dr. Grapevine offers many options for dental fillings, including the replacement of old or broken fillings with more attractive, tooth colored dental fillings.
