Patients often turn to dentists for restorative, preventive, and cosmetic procedures. They can appreciate an office that provides comprehensive dental care. At Richmond Smile Center, highly skilled dentist Dr. Charles Martin and his team can ensure optimal health of the mouth, teeth, and gums with various treatments.
Providing comprehensive dental care
Dr. Martin is highly sought after for his skills and expertise in performing complex dental procedures. During a detailed evaluation, information is gathered through various means to ensure thorough treatment. This helps Dr. Martin gain a greater understanding of your overall health and provide the right diagnosis and treatment.
Dr. Martin will review your medical history and ask you about medications you currently take. He will perform a thorough examination of the teeth, roots, and jawbone by utilizing digital x-rays and, when necessary, other specialized equipment. Your jaw movements will be observed to help identify other issues.
If the jaw makes clicking and popping sounds, it may be a sign of TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) dysfunction. Other symptoms include changes in the way the upper and lower teeth align, locking or restricted movement of the jaws, pain traveling through the jaw, face, or neck; and stiff muscles in the jaws.
Dr. Martin can provide the appropriate treatment for TMJ dysfunction. Electrical stimulation, ultrasound, massage, and other therapeutic techniques may be used. An oral appliance can be custom-made to help prevent recurring symptoms and keep the jaws properly aligned.

Whether it is a biannual dental check-up that includes a cleaning and examination or a full mouth restoration, you are in excellent hands with Dr. Martin and his team.
