Frequently Asked Questions

I wake up every morning with a sore jaw. What do you think the problem is?

You may react to stress by unknowingly grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw while you sleep. A sore jaw when you awaken can be a symptom of this condition, medically known as bruxism. Our doctors treat bruxism with a custom-made oral appliance called a nightguard. This comfortable, easy-to-use piece of acrylic prevents grinding and clenching so that you awaken rested and comfortable. Call today to schedule a consultation with one of our local offices in Camby or Terre Haute. Contact us today.

Dental visits make me nervous. Can you help?

Yes. Many people experience dental anxiety. Oral sedation can give you the total peace of mind and body. At your dental consultation, the doctor will discuss your concerns and explain how sedation dentistry works. Contact us today.

Do you place tooth-colored fillings?

That’s the only type of filling we place. Our Camby and Tere Haute dental office use composite resin to restore teeth marred by decay. Tinted to match your natural smile, composite resin is esthetically pleasing, durable, and safe. Schedule your appointment at Bonness Family Dentistry today to learn more.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Absolutely. Dentist-administered teeth whitening is a safe, and popular, cosmetic dentistry treatment. While we do not offer in-office whitening, we do offer take-home whitening kits to help you reveal whiter, brighter smiles. Contact our office today to learn more.

What are my options to replace missing teeth?

At Bonness Family Dentistry, we offer crown and bridgework, dentures, partials, and dental implants to restore incomplete smiles. Implants provide a long-lasting alternative that mimics the structure of a natural tooth. You and the dentist can discuss your options at your consultation. Schedule one today!
