Temporomandibular disorders (TMD)
Can result from strenuous physical activities, stressful situations, grinding of the teeth and overuse of the muscles. This can lead to head and neck pain and severe tooth wear. Other resulting symptoms include sensitive teeth, muscle soreness, jaw discomfort, difficulty opening and closing the mouth. TMD is treatable. A nighttime mouth guard will help stop the damage caused by patient’s teeth grinding.
Dental bonding is a procedure where tooth-coloured resin is placed onto a tooth to restore or improve a patient’s smile. Dental bonding has many uses, such as:
- Restoration of chipped, broken or decayed teeth
- Reshaping a malformed tooth
- Whitening discoloured teeth
- Filling in gaps between the teeth

Post Operative Instructions
Post Operative Instructions
Refrain from eating at least until the anesthesia has worn off.
Sensitivity, especially to cold, is common for a time following treatment. For the first few days or weeks avoid extremely hot or cold foods and beverages. It is normal to have discomfort in the gums around the tooth after the anesthesia wears off due to the procedure.
If your gums are tender, rinse with warm salt water, dissolving 1 teaspoon of salt in an 8 oz. glass of warm water. An analgesic such as Tylenol or Advil will help to increase your comfort.
The New Filling
After the placement of your new restoration, it may take a few days to get used to it. If your bite feels unbalanced, please be sure to call our office for an appointment for a simple adjustment.
Although the treatment that was performed is quite durable, the underlying tooth is still vulnerable to decay, especially at the interface between the tooth and filling. It is important to resume regular brushing and flossing immediately. Daily home care and regulating your intake of sugar-containing foods and carbohydrates will increase the longevity of your new restoration.
