Tooth Pain

Toothaches can be very painful, and even debilitating for patients. Tooth pain that has become a consistent issue for the patient, is usually the result of the nerve in the tooth being affected in one way or another. Tooth pain can be the result of an infection, extensive decay, or even a broken tooth, all resulting on some impact on the nerve. More often than not, tooth pain can usually be prevented with consistent home care and routine preventative visits.

TMJ Treatment

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can cause a great deal of discomfort and problems for your oral health. If you notice consistent TMJ pain, discussing this with your dentist is the next step. Initial evaluation of your TMJ will allow your dentist to further diagnose the care that can provide relief from the discomfort. Possible further imaging, such as x-rays, a CT scan or MRI may be needed in order to determine the extent of the problem. Further treatment planning will be completed in order to provide the best possible recommended treatment for your specific TMJ concern.


TMJ issues could also be a sign of a patient’s bite instability. Missing teeth, shifting teeth, and previous restorative dental work can create a bite that is unstable, and therefore creates an alignment that can lead to jaw pain, popping & clicking, and consistent headaches.  Dr. Michael Verber, along with a number of our doctors,  have continued their education to become leading providers in Central Pennsylvania when it comes to evaluation and diagnosing TMJ issues.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep related breathing disorders, such as sleep apnea, have been found to correlate to many areas in the dental field. When you experience pauses in breathing while sleeping, this can result in snoring, teeth grinding, and even bigger systemic issues.


As dental professionals, it is part of our role to identify possible signs of sleep apnea concerns seen in the oral environment. We will encourage further follow up with your primary care provider, along with a sleep study in order to properly diagnose any medical concerns and recommend a treatment plan. Consulting with your dentist on any sleep related concerns, is a critical first step to maintain proper overall health.


Tooth Replacement

Over time, teeth reach a point where they cannot be restored properly with a filling or a crown. Therefore, when a tooth needs to be replaced, your dentist can discuss all replacement options including: dental implant, bridge, or a removable option. All options have their pros and cons, and with the help of your dentist, you can determine what will be the best treatment for your individual mouth.


Both bridges and removable partials utilize your own teeth to help replace a tooth that is missing. Bridges are fixed to the adjacent areas of the missing tooth and do not come in and out of your mouth. Partials replace all necessary missing teeth, but do come in and out of your mouth. Both options are great treatment options to replace your teeth. However, the gold standard of treatment to replace a missing tooth is a dental implant.


With the combined efforts of our specialty office, dental implants can be a smooth process to help replace your tooth.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are prosthetics surgically placed to replace missing teeth, and over the course of a few months, fuse with the bone and become what would be the root of the missing tooth. Healing time varies with each individual case; however, once fully integrated, the implant will allow for a permanent crown to be placed on the surface and act as your natural tooth.


If you are interested in implants or have more questions feel free to call our office and set up a comprehensive exam and consultation with one of our doctors! Our team will come up with a treatment plan and will help coordinate your appointments with our specialty doctors.
