Care from a TMJ Dentist in the Pocono Area

Do you find that you're unable to open your mouth without painful clicking and popping sounds? If so, you may be affected by temporomandibular joint disease or TMJ. Pocono area TMJ dentist Joseph Kelly, Jr, D.M.D., is highly trained in diagnosing and treating TMJ and would love to discuss your symptoms with you. We also provide cosmetic dentistry, dental implants and braces.

If you're experiencing uncomfortable swelling around your jaw joint or have constant headaches, or feel that your jaw is locking up, please contact Kelly Dental Care today. In most cases, TMP symptoms can be easily treated.

Dr. Kelly is often asked about the causes of TMJ disorder? Some contributing factors may include injuries to the jaw area, certain forms of arthritis, low-level infections and certain dental procedures. Untreated dental problems (crooked teeth, gum disease) can also lead to TMJ symptoms.

The treatment plan that's right for you may include attention to proper gum maintenance, pain relief, restoration of certain teeth that may be contributing to the problem, and investigation of the underlying causes of your TMJ symptoms.

Many of our Pocono area patients have discovered that relief can be obtained from simple changes in their sleeping and eating habits, although more advanced cases may require surgery. Talk to Dr. Joseph Kelly, Jr now to learn what's right for you.

Bruxism: Not the Usual Grind

Sure, it's annoying when friends, spouses or children grind their teeth at night, but the effects could be much more serious than the loss of a good night's sleep on your part. This sleep disorder, called bruxism, can lead to a number of ailments, including loose or lost teeth. Even lighter grinding can wear down tooth enamel.

If you or someone in your family is grinding their teeth at night, call us at (844) 302-6661 to schedule an appointment with FistName Kelly, D.M.D..

Take Advantage of Your Dental Insurance

If you and your family have dental insurance, you should take a couple of minutes to see what it offers. Many plans have a 'use it or lose it' provision that provides a certain level of care per calendar year.

Take advantage of it and save a lot of money in the long run by avoiding costly procedures that result from poor dental habits. Our friendly staff at Kelly Dental Care will be happy to answer all your dental insurance questions. Just give us a call at (844) 302-6661.

Picking a Dental Floss

It's amazing how much variety you can find in dental floss. With conventional floss, you just tear off a piece at least 18 inches and wind it around your index fingers. If you find traditional thread-like floss is uncomfortable for your gums, try dental ribbon, its smoother counterpart. Dental flossers are often regarded as being easier to manage than conventional floss. There's no need to wrap any excess thread around your fingers, which some find uncomfortable.

If you have a fixed bridge in your mouth, nifty little floss threaders allow you to thread the floss between your teeth, under the bridge work. If you have questions about dental floss, just call Kelly Dental Care at (844) 302-6661 and we’ll be happy to make a recommendation.
