Dental Concerns We Can Fix in Our Chapel Hill Dental Office

  • Bleeding Gums – Bleeding gums, often known as gingivitis, is the first stage of gum disease development. To prevent gum disease from causing permanent damage to your soft tissues, we offer thorough teeth cleanings as well as periodontal therapy options to help restore your gum health.
  • Cosmetic Concerns – We want our patients to feel proud of their smiles. That’s why we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry solutions.
  • Frequent Headaches – Tension headaches, earaches, and facial soreness are all symptoms of underlying dental concerns stemming from your jaw’s misalignment. We can help address this issue with TMJ treatment options like oral appliance therapy.
  • Missing Teeth – When you are missing one or more teeth, you are at a higher risk for gum disease and tooth decay development. Additionally, you are at risk for more extensive dental damage due to the amount of pressure being applied to your surrounding dental structures. We offer a wide range of restorative dentistry solutions to our patients looking to replace missing teeth.
  • Teeth Grinding – Teeth grinding can cause jaw pain, tension headaches, and unintended dental damage. To help combat bruxism, we provide custom night guards to help protect your teeth as you sleep.
  • Tooth Cavities – Our office can help you restore your smile following tooth decay, including fillings, crowns, and root canals.
  • Tooth Pain – Toothaches should be addressed by a professional dentist as soon as possible. They may stem from dental decay or damage to your tooth’s structure. If you are experiencing a toothache, our team will ensure that you are seen as soon as possible to relieve your symptoms and minimize discomfort.
  • Worn or Broken Teeth – Drs. Furgurson and  White can identify the root cause of your worn or damaged teeth and make appropriate treatment recommendations to restore your long-term dental health with lasting results.
  • Snoring & Sleep Apnea – Our team can create a custom-made sleep apnea appliance, similar to a sports mouthguard, for you to wear during sleep to prevent loud snoring associated with sleep apnea.
