Of course, you expect a dentist to treat cavities and gum disease, but it may come as a surprise that your dentist can also treat common problems like frequent headaches, snoring, and neck pain. Dr. Donald Alexander is a general dentist in Jacksonville, Florida, trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of dental concerns and dental related problems.
Common Dental Concerns
Dr. Alexander treats a considerable number of patients who have bleeding gums, which are actually an early sign of gum disease. We offer comprehensive periodontal therapy including laser dentistry, to deliver quicker, safer, more comfortable treatment.
Millions of Americans are plagued by frequent headaches. In some cases, they can be caused by TMJ dysfunction. Dr. Alexander is among a handful of dentists in the Jacksonville area trained and experienced to treat frequent headaches caused by TMJ disorders.
Teeth grinding is another common problem that presents in our office. If left untreated, teeth grinding can cause premature tooth wear and contribute to tooth decay, periodontal disease and TMJ disorders. Dr. Alexander can control teeth grinding and prevent damage to teeth with bite guard therapy and other treatments.
Cavities are a problem for patients of all ages. Dr. Alexander treats tooth cavities depending on the severity with a range of options from dental fillings to dental crowns or root canal therapy.
Dr. Alexander is an Invisalign dentist and can create a personalized treatment plan to straighten your teeth without metal braces. Other treatments for crooked teeth may include porcelain veneers or dental crowns.
Snoring and Sleep Apnea
CPAP is the most common treatment for snoring and sleep apnea, but it isn’t well accepted by many patients. Dr. Alexander offers less obtrusive treatments such as a snore guard to keep the airway open and reduce snoring and sleep apnea symptoms.
Fear of the Dentist
Dental anxiety can be experienced by anyone. Past trauma, dental phobia, and other issues can turn a routine dental experience into a frightful one. Dr. Alexander offers sedation dentistry options to ease the mind and body during a dental visit.
When you choose a family dentist, it is important to find one that can not only provide you with the most convenient care, but also has the broad range of services and expertise to treat problems if, and when the arise. Schedule an appointment with your Jacksonville FL dentist, Dr. Alexander, today.
