Treating Dental Concerns in Alpharetta, GA

Learn how we treat our patient’s dental concerns at Esthetic Dental Solutions:

Bleeding Gums

Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss? You may have gingivitis. Also known as gum inflammation, gingivitis leads to red, swollen, and bleeding gums. A good oral hygiene routine and routine dental cleanings can help reverse gingivitis. We also offer antibacterial rinses to minimize harmful bacteria in the mouth.


Teeth clenching and grinding, or bruxism is a common symptom of temporomandibular joint disorders. Bruxism also occurs unconsciously and is caused by stress or pressure on the TMJ. A custom-made nightguard can prevent bruxism and protect the teeth from further wear.

Crooked Teeth

Patients with crooked teeth are more likely to develop TMJ problems, tooth decay, and even gum disease. Straightening a misaligned bite or crooked teeth with Invisalign can prevent these oral health issues. If patients have slightly crooked teeth, porcelain veneers or tooth bonding can cover teeth for a more even smile.

Dental Anxiety

Are you scared of visiting the dentist? Do you have generalized anxiety about loud noises at the dentist? We offer dental sedation to calm patients during lengthy or surgical treatments. Our dentists can also use sedation as needed for a pain-free, relaxing treatment. Contact our office if you or a loved one have dental fear or anxiety. We will help accommodate you so you can get the dental care you need.

Missing Teeth

Even one single missing tooth can lead to speech and bite issues. Dental implants and implant-secured dental bridges and dentures are some of the best restorative options for lost permanent teeth. Implants are small titanium posts that an oral surgeon places in the jawbone. Once the implants fuse with the jawbone, they can be covered by a crown, denture, or bridge.

Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the soft tissues in the back of the mouth collapse, blocking the airway. Sleep apnea can cause prevent breathing for short periods of time when patients are asleep. Because of this, many patients with sleep apnea are at risk of developing heart problems. For moderate forms of sleep apnea, we can create nightguards. Nightguards are similar to mouthguards and are worn at night to keep the airway open.
