Dr. Hedge is a nationally known authority on both dental techniques, as well as dental practice excellence. Dr. Riley is also highly accomplished with membership in leading dental groups on the local, state, and national levels. Both doctors welcome adults and children as patients. Their procedures address the needs of all age groups. In our Tanglewood office, you can receive general dentistry services as well as cosmetic, orthodontic, restorative, and preventative dentistry procedures. They also offer unique services to tackle various health issues most people don’t realize can be improved by good dentistry. Examples include sleep apnea and TMJ. For sleep apnea, the doctors can create custom-made mouthguards that help keep the airway open throughout the night. In other words, better dentistry could lead to the best night’s sleep you’ve had in years. Problems in the area where your jawbone connects with your skull can lead to pain throughout the body. Malfunctions of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can cause jaw issues, neck pain, headaches, and even back pain.
Drs. Hedge and Riley use mouthguards, special jaw exercises, and medication to bring long-awaited relief to desperate TMJ sufferers. Sometimes the dental problem isn’t structural but cosmetic. Drs. Hedge and Riley are aware that giving you your preferred smile may include more than just beautiful teeth. For example, some people are happy with their teeth but would like something done to improve the appearance of their gums. That’s why we offer gum bleaching. Gum bleaching removes unwanted discoloration using a simple in-office procedure. The result is even-toned, healthy-looking gums that keep their appearance for years. Don’t waste another day dealing with lingering dental problems. Contact our Tanglewood office today to schedule an appointment to speak with one of our doctors.
