Solutions for all of Your Dental Concerns

We understand that you want the best for your dental health. That’s why we encourage our patients to schedule an appointment with us whenever they have questions or concerns regarding their smiles. Our vast range of services is here to provide you with solutions to meet your smile’s unique needs. Here are some common dental concerns that we treat in our Bountiful, UT office.

Sleep Apnea

Snoring, or obstructive sleep apnea is an issue that can cause a lot of damage to a patient’s physical and mental health. As a holistic dentist in Bountiful, UT, Dr. Larsen works with you to restore your good night’s sleep and improve your overall health. Through oral appliance therapy, our team can help relieve you from mild to moderate sleep apnea.

Bleeding Gums

After you brush your teeth, you might notice blood in the sink. Bleeding gums are a symptom of gingivitis, which eventually leads to gum disease if left untreated. For patients who experience bleeding gums, this is a sign that a dental cleaning needs to be scheduled to scrape away the buildup that is irritating your gumline. If your gingivitis progresses to gum disease, we can also help by providing periodontal disease treatments. 

Missing Teeth

If you are missing one or more teeth, we recommend you seek out tooth replacement solutions. Our restorative dentistry solutions include dental implants, bridges, dentures and partials which are all used to give you back the look, feel, and function of your natural smile.

Headaches

Tension headaches are a common issue that patients deal with outside of the dentist’s office. If you are experiencing frequent tension headaches, consult with Dr. Larsen at your next appointment. Anything from a small cavity to a misaligned bite can cause added muscle strain to your jaw and cause headaches. TMJ treatment can help reduce the pressure on your jawbone and relieve you of your headaches.

Dental Anxiety

Many patients experience dental anxiety, which holds them back from scheduling necessary dental appointments. We want to make sure our patients are as calm and comfortable as possible. This is why we offer sedation dentistry solutions that can be used alongside most of our other services.

Bruxism

Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can cause jaw pain, tooth damage, and teeth shifting. Most people are unaware that they’ve been grinding their teeth until more obvious symptoms occur. Dr. Larsen examines your teeth for signs of teeth grinding at each preventative care appointment and will prescribe a customized nightguard if he suspects you’ve been grinding your teeth.
