Stop the Daily Grind with a Nightguard from Dr. Radz

It’s no secret that a busy schedule can cause stress. But if you’re responding to the stress in your life by grinding your teeth, you could be doing serious damage to your smile.

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can wreak havoc on the surface of your teeth and the muscles around your jaw, causing symptoms like sore jaw, headache, and earache. If left untreated, bruxism can even contribute to TMJ dysfunctional and other serious problems like insomnia, eating disorders, and depression.

But because many patients who suffer from bruxism grind their teeth unconsciously while they’re asleep at night, is relief actually possible?

It is with a nightguard from Dr. Radz.

Denver Athletes Prevent Injuries with Custom Mouthguards from Dr. Radz

When someone mentions protective gear for athletes, you probably think of helmets, shin guards, or knee pads. But here’s a surprising fact most people don’t know: of all sports injuries incurred, up to 40% involve an athlete’s face. Your precious smile may be at more risk than you’d realized! At Dr. Radz’s Denver office, we provide comfortable, effective, custom-made mouthguards to minimize possible injuries to your teeth and jaw. Whether you’re a hockey player or a skateboarder, a professional mouthguard can keep your teeth safe during activity.

There are several types of mouthguards available, including ready-made mouthguards you can buy at a department or sports apparel store. But mouthguards that are not made specifically for your mouth and with your needs in mind can be bulky, inhibit normal breathing and speaking, and be difficult to keep in your mouth during play. […]

Dr. Radz Restores Denver Smiles with Dental Implants

Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about smiling for pictures, eating with friends, or in other social situations. But the detrimental effects of a gap in your smile extend further than just a blow to your confidence. A person’s jawbone depends on teeth to remain healthy. Without those teeth, bone loss is inevitable, and when that supporting structure is compromised, patients are susceptible to additional tooth loss. Dental implants from Dr. Radz’ Denver dental practice are an excellent tooth replacement solution, because they address the aesthetics, function, and health of your mouth all at once. […]

Prep Your Smile for the Season with Zoom! Whitening from Dr. Radz

As many people do, you probably look forward to the holidays. The chance to catch up with family and friends, the good food, and the festive atmosphere mean you’ll have great reasons to smile during the next few months. If dull or yellow teeth are making you self-conscious, you might hesitate to express that holiday cheer. For patients interested in a quick and effective smile revitalization, Dr. Radz offers Zoom! Whitening, a system that drastically whitens teeth in a single, one-hour appointment at our downtown Denver dental office.

Restoring Your Smile
Your teeth get a lot of use during the day. They’re made of strong and durable enamel – the hardest substance in the human body –  so they can stand up to a lot of wear and tear. But as time passes, you may notice stains from wine, coffee, tea, tobacco, and even discoloration from medicine or aging. In-office Zoom! Whitening can erase many harsh stains, whitening your teeth by about eight shades. […]

Dentistry Could Save Your Life: Stem Cells from Teeth

Beneath the shiny white exterior, under the sensitive dentin, flowing through deep internal canals, a rich substance called “pulp” brings nutrients to and removes waste from each of your living teeth. In the pulp, nerves and blood vessles are snuggled tightly with stem cells – those magnificent cells that hold the key to life. You’ve probably heard about stem cell research and how scientists think stem cells are the key to curing many diseases. You see, stem cells can grow new cells of the same type – whether for bone, muscle, organs, or nerve tissue. […]

Downtown Denver Dentist offers DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Detection for Comprehensive Checkups

With state-of-the-art DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection, Dr. Gary Radz is taking general dentistry to new heights. You see, before tooth decay (a cavity) presents itself, tooth enamel begins to show signs of demineralization. By finding and treating these areas early, Dr. Radz could save you and your loved ones from needing major fillings, crowns, or even replacement teeth later in life. The smaller the problem, and the earlier we find it, the less invasive the corrective procedure. This is true throughout dentistry. Left untreated, demineralization will become tooth decay, and if the decay is not treated, it can reach the blood stream and cause a host of problems, from an tooth death to a blood-borne infection that affects the entire body.
