Care from a TMJ Dentist in the Costa Mesa 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. Costa Mesa area TMJ dentist Andrew Mortensen, D.D.S., 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 Andrew G. Mortensen, DDS, Inc. today. In most cases, TMP symptoms can be easily treated.

Dr. Mortensen 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 Costa Mesa 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. Andrew Mortensen now to learn what's right for you.

How Does Toothpaste Work?

Tetrasodium pyrophosphate (TSPP) in toothpaste removes calcium and magnesium from the saliva so they can't form tartar on your teeth. Some toothpastes contain potassium nitrate to build protection against the pain of sensitive teeth. Baking soda adds foam and scouring ability and can fight acid-loving bacteria.

Peroxide toothpastes not only lighten the teeth but also kill germs. Finally, sweeteners and flavorings are added to mask the taste so that you'll use it. Call Andrew G. Mortensen, DDS, Inc. at (877) 926-0846 and we’ll be happy to recommend a toothpaste that’s right for you.

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 Andrew G. Mortensen, DDS, Inc. will be happy to answer all your dental insurance questions. Just give us a call at (877) 926-0846.

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 Andrew G. Mortensen, DDS, Inc. at (877) 926-0846 and we’ll be happy to make a recommendation.
