Q: How do I know if I have TMD?

A:

TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorder, is a common affliction that is characterized by pain or discomfort in your jaw, neck, shoulder, face, or head. If you have frequent headaches that cannot be explained, you may be suffering from TMD. If you believe you may have TMD, please make an appointment with one of our doctors for a full examination and treatment if necessary.

Q: What are the symptoms of sleep apnea?

A:

If you or your partner snore very loudly and consistently, you may be suffering from a sleep disorder. This is often the first sign of sleep apnea. However, the telltale symptom of sleep apnea is the occasional cessation of breathing during sleep. This can happen a few times a night, or hundreds. Learn more about how sleep apnea can affect your overall health by visiting our service page.

Q: What are veneers?

A:

A veneer is a thin sheet of tooth-colored material that is used to completely hide imperfections in your tooth. Veneers are bonded directly to your teeth, allowing you to have the perfect Hollywood smile you have always dreamed of. They can be used to correct discoloration, stains, and chips and can be used to change the shape and size of your tooth. We offer a few different options for veneers, including minimal-preparation and no-prep options. Let us help you achieve the beautiful smile you deserve.

Q: How can I fix a cracked tooth?

A:

Typically, cracked teeth are repaired using a crown. Crowns are designed to restore damaged teeth to their fully functioning natural abilities. Our office uses CEREC same-day crowns to do this job. With our CEREC crowns, we can restore your tooth in just one office visit. To learn more about our CEREC same-day crowns, visit our service page here.

Q: How Do I Get Dental Implants In Lexington, KY?

A:

The short answer is that you come see Dr. Takacs right away!

Here’s the scoop: dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted directly into your jawbone. If you have ever experienced adult tooth loss, implants will mimic the role of your tooth root.

A dental implant can be placed into the jawbone where the missing tooth was to help maintain bone mass and prevent a shift in your teeth. The new post will immediately begin to fuse to your jawbone to form a permanent anchor to which a modern-style replacement tooth (such as a dental crown) can be attached.

This will reimagine your appearance, help you chew your food more effectively, and the best part is that it can improve your health adding years to your life.

So, contact us today to schedule your dental implant consultation in our Lexington, KY dentist’s office!

Q: How can I boost the appearance of yellowed, stained, or discolored teeth?

A:

Off-color teeth can be significantly brightened with a professional teeth whitening treatment from our Lexington, KY dentist’s office! Dr. Takacs is proud to offer our Central Kentucky patients the very effective KöR whitening system. We offer free cosmetic dentistry consultations, so you’ve got nothing to lose by exploring your options!

Q: Are there any alternative orthodontic treatments available in Lexington, KY?

A:

Yes! Our Lexington, KY dentist’s office has an alternative adult orthodontic treatment program that utilizes a series of clear, virtually invisible plastic aligners to correct crooked, crowded or gapped teeth without attracting any unwanted attention or rude commentary. Whether you are interested in Invisalign for your teenager or for yourself, all you have to do is get in touch to schedule an orthodontic consultation at one of our three convenient Bluegrass locations.

Q: Can you fix a baby’s tongue or lip tie so they can nurse properly?

A:

Absolutely. In fact, that is one of our specialties here at Beaumont Family Dentistry. If you notice that your baby has a poor latch, slides off the nipple, shows symptoms of colic, experiences reflux, has poor weight gain, is unable to take a pacifier, or chews on the nipple, then you might want to look into our laser therapy treatment.

We simply use a pain-free laser procedure to loosen the frenums and give your baby mobility in the lip and/or tongue. Each frenum takes about a minute to treat, and then you are given your baby back to immediately nurse. It’s that easy to change their life for the better!

For more information about tongue tie or lip tie solutions, call one of our Lexington, KY dentist’s offices today! Hamburg: 859-554-1612, Leestown: 859-554-4049, Beaumont: 859-554-1772!

Q: When would I need to go to the sleep dentistry center?

A:

You would want to do that if you are experiencing issues like snoring, headaches, grinding, and so forth. Unlike other Lexington area dental offices that might see a case like yours once a month, if that, we are helping patients afflicted with sleep apnea or TMJ-related troubles each and every day. The goal of the TMJ & Sleep Dentistry Center of Central Kentucky is to help you get better rest, alleviate your pain, and allow you to become healthier overall.

We use advanced treatment options like TruDenta and oral appliances to give you comfortable, complete relief from your TMJ pain and sleep apnea discomfort.

Q: Will My Dental Insurance Cover My Next Checkup?

A:

Odds are, it will. Most dental insurance policies will cover up to two professional teeth cleanings and oral exams per calendar year. Still, it is always best to check in advance. We’d be happy to verify your benefits when you contact our Lexington, KY dentist’s office to schedule your next preventive appointment with Dr. Takacs!
