TMJ disorder (sometimes referred to as TMD) occurs when a patient’s jaw joints and the related facial muscles are negatively impacted by an injury, teeth grinding, a misaligned bite, or other causes. The most common result is severe, chronic facial pain – thankfully, relief is in sight when you schedule a TMJ evaluation with our dentists at Bartusiak Dental Care. We can design an occlusal splint, which helps to reposition the jaw’s natural resting position to a more proper, comfortable place and also prevent harmful contact between teeth as well.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Many patients don’t realize that trained dentists like Dr. Bartusiak are more than capable of treating sleep apnea! If you’ve been diagnosed with mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) by your general physician, consider exploring oral appliance therapy as a worthwhile alternative to CPAP treatment here in Washington, PA. This custom-made device will help prevent airway blockage by repositioning the jaw and/or tongue, allowing for easy breathing, higher quality rest, and an improved overall quality of life.
We understand – dental fear is a real and common problem that can affect patients of all ages, leading to skipped appointments and worsening oral health problems over time. In order to make your experience here at Bartusiak Dental Care as comfortable and stress-free as possible, we offer sedation dentistry services that can take the edge off those negative emotions.
Soft Tissue Laser
When it comes to treating a patient’s soft inner gum tissue, a light touch is always best. At Bartusiak Dental Care, we’re happy to have invested in a state-of-the-art soft tissue laser for outstanding periodontal disease treatment, aesthetic gum recontouring, and more! Instead of traditional scalpels, this focused wavelength is exceptionally precise and very comfortable – most patients don’t even require any local anesthetic to feel genuinely at ease in the treatment chair.
Our Prodent® intraoral camera offers a valuable up-close-and-personal look at a patient’s oral health, both for their benefit and our dentists’ benefit! We’ll navigate the camera-tipped wand expertly through the mouth to capture high-resolution images of the teeth, gums, and related oral structures. These images are instantly transferred to a monitor in the operatory for easy viewing, serving as a visual aid as we discuss any problematic findings, potential treatment options, and much more.
There’s a lot of important information about a person’s smile that can’t be gleaned by the naked eye. That’s why X-rays are a such a vital part of identifying and treating common dental problems. Here in Washington, PA, our office has invested in digital X-ray technology for a superior diagnostic experience. Unlike traditional film, there are no darkrooms, hazardous chemicals, or long waiting times to worry about – images are captured and made available for viewing in seconds. Because of the technology’s precise focus, radiation exposure is also greatly reduced by up to 80% for added safety.
3D Cone-Beam Imaging
Confident, precise treatment planning is crucial for complex services like surgical dental implant placement, root canal therapy, wisdom tooth extraction, and more. That’s why Dr. Bartusiak utilizes his state-of-the-art PreXion 3D Cone Beam for these situations, capturing exhaustively detailed, three-dimensional X-rays of the patient’s dental and facial structures. Even small details, like the locations of sinuses and facial nerves, are mapped out with expert clarity so that there are no “surprises” down the road.
