TMJ / TMD Treatment
Your dentist can determine the cause and proper treatment for temporomandibular disorders (TMD, sometimes referred to as TMJ), which are problems with your jaw and its surrounding muscles. These disorders occur as a result of problems associated with the function of the temporomandibular joint and can result in trouble chewing, a grating or popping noise, or chronic soreness.More information
Custom-made to straighten your teeth, Invisalign’s clear aligners are nearly invisible. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, multi-layer SmartTrack material, which gently shifts your teeth into place over time, moving them slightly both horizontally and vertically and even rotating them if necessary. The aligners are engineered so that as you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks), your teeth gradually move into their correct position.More information

Professionally eliminating this build-up of plaque and tartar helps to prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and periodontal disease. The best dental care we can provide is preventative care. Regular check-ups and professional teeth cleaning prevent small problems from becoming more complex and difficult to treat.Call Oak Openings Dental in Toledo, Ohio today at 419-824-7900 to begin the dental care regimen that saves you time, money, and stress.

Depending on your needs and preferences, the dental team at Oak Openings Dental will help you choose whether to receive this treatment in our office or apply it yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home.

A dental crown is a "cap" that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. A crown might be needed to protect a decayed tooth from more damage, to restore an already broken tooth, to hold a dental bridge in place or to cover a severely discolored tooth. Crowns offer long-term durability, protection from decay and cracking, and an improved, natural appearance. A crown may be right for you if...
- you have chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This situation could cause a gap in your teeth that requires a surface replacement.
- you have undergone a root canal that requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
- you have weak and damage-prone teeth.
- you have a tooth that is severely discolored.
