Why Whitmore Dental?
“I initially went to Dr. Whitmore when a friend recommended him back in 1990.
“When he and his staff asked me about my goals for my teeth, I jokingly said ‘I don’t ever want to have to put my teeth in a jar before bed.’
“Dr. Whitmore and his team keep my teeth in great condition and also have helped me with a more recent problem I’ve experienced involving jaw pain.”
Jaw pain treatment
“For some time, I’d been clenching my teeth at night, and also during the day, without even knowing it.
“During the past few years, I began to feel pain in my cheekbones, right at the place where the jaw hinges. It was really uncomfortable.
“I was also starting to develop some other symptoms associated with jaw problems, including some vertigo. I’d also been seeing a chiropractor for the pain and stiffness that I was feeling in my neck.
“Dr. Whitmore suspected that my jaw problems could be related to my bite, so he and his team did some bite checks. It turns out that my lower jaw and upper jaw weren’t fitting together well.
“I wore an orthotic device for a few months, which helped somewhat, but I was ready for a permanent solution that would feel more natural.
“This October, Dr. Whitmore replaced some of the existing crowns on my back teeth with new crowns that provided a higher chewing surface and fixed my bite issues. I noticed that my jaw pain was gone immediately!
“I went through a little adjustment time with new bite, but it now feels normal and comfortable. My neck pain has also been relieved.”
Tooth-care for the long-term
“I can count on the Whitmore team to give me care and advice that’s in the long term interest of my teeth.”
