Dental Concerns
Spokane, WA

Patients experience a variety of dental concerns and problems and sometimes don't know where to start when trying to find treatment options. Our experienced team can help you navigate these questions. Below is a list of some more common issues; however, we encourage you to contact us to discuss your specific case. Our compassionate and knowledgeable team is trained in a wide range of advanced dental techniques and treatments that are designed to help restore your comfort and confidence.

Crooked Teeth

Patient rubbing jaw and wincing in pain should see Dr. Kyle Huish, DDS at Dynamic Dental Care in Spokane, WAIn the dental world, we often use the terms "malocclusion" or "misalignment" to refer to teeth that are crowded, spaced, or not in harmony with the function of the jar. Misalignment can cause problems such as gum disease, cavities, TMJ, excessive wear, chipping, and many other issues that can cost a lot to fix down the road. Properly aligned teeth can be preventive, save you the expense of more significant dental procedures, and give you a confident smile you deserve. Invisalign or clear aligner therapy is a popular and effective solution to correct misaligned teeth and improve your bite. At Dynamic Dental Care, with clear aligners, we can preview your final smile and treatment duration before even starting treatment!

Invisalign or Traditional Braces?

•  Clear trays and tooth-colored attachments make the process virtually invisible
•  Trays are removable, making eating, brushing, flossing, and cavity and gum health much easier
•  Shorter treatment times
•  Fewer office visits

Traditional Braces
•  Sometimes, it is better for very complex movements
•  Hands-off treatment
•  There are no trays to remove and put back, which can be better for younger or less responsible patients

If you are still determining which orthodontic solution is best, schedule a consultation with our team.

Tooth Wear

Close up of a man putting clear aligners on his teeth at Dynamic Dental Care in Spokane, WANaturally, teeth wear as we age. We all wish the gene would have been discovered to increase tooth length by now. But for now, our goal in dentistry is to either control or correct the wear. Grinding, clenching, misalignment, and other dental issues can cause teeth to wear prematurely. When teeth are worn down, not only does it affect the look of your smile, but problems such as sensitivity and chewing discomfort can occur. Tooth wear can be a downward spiral, starting off slow in life and then increasing in rate while the wear becomes more severe.

Control or correct?

•  Invisalign orthodontic therapy can help balance the bite forces
•  Custom night guard to protect nighttime habits
•  Custom-made day guard to protect those who clench during the day
•  Sleep Apnea or airway issues exist in 50% of those who clench or grind
•  Cognitive Behavior Therapy to relax the mind before sleeping

•  All of the teeth in one arch must be treated at once
•  Smile makeover on natural teeth to increase the length
•  Full mouth rehabilitation with implants to restore worn or missing teeth
•  Smile simulation preview before treatment
•  Custom treatment plans to cater to your needs

If you are unsure which is the best solution for your toothwear, schedule a consultation with our team.

Dental Anxiety

Pebbles at Dynamic Dental Care in Spokane, WADental anxiety is probably the top reason people avoid the dentist; we get it!

In addition to creating a welcoming office environment, we have invested in dental technology and sedation services designed to help make the patient experience as smooth, relaxing, respectful, and pain-free as possible.

How are we here to HELP?

•  3D and AI technology so we get it right the first time
•  Sedation options for even the smallest of visits
•  The Judgement Free Zone because we care

If you are unsure what else you might need to help with your anxiety, schedule a consultation with our team.

Tooth Pain

Row of five toy teeth, all smiling except for the middle tooth which frowns because of tooth decay at Dynamic Dental Care in Spokane, WATooth pain can quickly ruin your day; we have all been there. It can vary in cause and severity, so we act quickly to find the cause of the issue, get it addressed, and get you back on your feet. If tooth pain is caused by a tooth infection or decay, a root canal or crown and root canal will likely be recommended. If the infection is large enough that the local anesthetic won't be able to take effect, either an antibiotic or dental sedation will be advised before treatment. We want your comfort every step of the way.

Does my tooth need a root canal?

Teeth experiencing warm temperature sensitivity, cold sensitivity that lingers, or spontaneous sensitivity (like waking you up at night) most likely need root canal therapy. Root canal therapy enables the dentist to access the inner nerve chamber of the tooth to remove infected tissue and bacteria. Both procedures, the root canal, and the crown, can usually be performed in one visit at Dynamic Dental Care, and many patients report experiencing immediate relief once the infected tissue has been cleaned.

Could it be something else?

Other possible causes of tooth pain can come from the exposed inner layer of the tooth called dentin. This is usually felt with cold sensitivity that comes and goes quickly, or a change in ion concentration (like sugar) causes a "zinger" that comes and goes quickly. This is good news and usually means a simple restorative fix is all that is needed.

Sometimes, the muscles and soft tissue around the tooth can send referred pain to the tooth, and the patient feels like the tooth is hurting, but it is a sign of TMJ. These can be more complex, and our experienced team can help figure out what is causing you to feel uncomfortable and recommend the most appropriate treatment efficiently and effectively.
If you are unsure of the cause or best solution to your tooth pain, schedule a consultation with our team.

Jaw Pain and Headaches

However, many patients experience jaw pain due to tooth or bite issues, such as a misalignment or bruxism. In these cases, your dental team can often be an excellent resource. Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ Disorder or TMD) is a multifactorial condition that can lead to many symptoms, including jaw pain, headaches, tooth wear, and more. Our dental team is extensively familiar with oral structures and is often in a unique position to help identify and provide relief for TMJ-related pain.

Jaw Pain and Headache Treatment?

•  Treatment in these cases is more therapy in nature
•  Misaligned teeth or missing teeth can be a contributing factor
•  Sleep apnea and nighttime airway compromise should be looked at
•  Nightguards can be part of the first steps to therapy
•  BOTOX injections, muscle relaxers, chiropractic, and physical therapy are often used as adjunctive therapies

If you are unsure what to do with your jaw pain or headaches, schedule a consultation with our team.

Bleeding Gums

Close up 3D rendering of dirty teeth being cleaned and restored by a dental tool at Dynamic Dental Care in Spokane, WABleeding gums can be caused by several factors, the most common being gum disease, poor dental hygiene, and misaligned teeth. For those with poor dental care habits, switching up your routine is often a significant step towards improved gum health. Proper brushing and flossing with regular professional dental cleanings can prevent bleeding gums while also helping to safeguard your long-term oral health. We can definitely help those suffering from gum disease. Our caring hygienists will create a plan to get you healthy again. Sometimes scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning, is the first step in the process. Also, laser bacterial reduction and precisely placed antibiotic chips can be used around the teeth to get them healthy again. Without intervention by a dental team, gum disease can worsen, leading to several oral and system health concerns, including tooth loss and bone resorption.

If you are unsure what to do with your bleeding gums, schedule a consultation with our team.

Sleep Apnea and Snoring

Snoring is a common problem, but did you know it is usually the first of many symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea? Usually, it is all undiagnosed until it is too late. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the complete closure of the airway. Still, various other degrees of airway closure can cause someone to have restless sleep, wake up tired, and experience daytime sleepiness. Also, 50% of people who grind or clench their teeth have airway compromise during sleep. Sleep Apnea is a very dangerous condition and could even be life-threatening. At Dynamic Dental Care, we routinely screen for sleep apnea during our hygiene exams. Our office has the technology to perform an airway endoscopy digitally, view your entire sinus three-dimensionally, and find out what could be the cause of not sleeping well. All of which is free of charge.

How is my sleep?

•  Do I snore or keep my bed partner awake at night?
•  Do I wake up multiple times at night to use the bathroom?
•  Do I wake up refreshed?
•  How often do I feel tired sitting, reading, or watching TV?
•  How often do I need to take a nap in the afternoon?
•  Have I recently gained weight, had high blood pressure, or decreased libido?
•  Do I have diabetes or general heart disease?

Schedule a consultation with our team if any of these questions resonate with you.

Dental Sedation and Anesthesia

That is why at Dynamic Dental Care, we have all the pieces in place to care for your dental needs while you are asleep. Most people think that laughing gas or maybe a pill was the only way they could be sedated at a dental office. That is different in our office, where we offer every level of sedation and anesthesia with our medically trained anesthesia providers. From full mouth rehabilitation to a "simple cleaning," we utilize various techniques to keep you cruising through your dental visit. Do you have problems getting numb? Do you fear the needle? Do you hate the sound of the drill? Ask our team what you need to be comfortable.

Sedation Options?

•  General Anesthesia Sedation - General anesthesia refers to any form of sedation where a patient is kept in controlled unconsciousness. When put into such a state, the brain doesn't respond to pain signals. Further, because the patient is unconscious, they do not feel pain. General anesthesia is usually administered through an intravenous (IV) system but can also be delivered through a mask whereby the patient breathes in the anesthetic.
•  IV Sedation - IV sedation puts you in a relaxed state of mind but does not put you to sleep. You will remain awake and be able to respond to any requests the doctor may have while you are sedated. Patients often experience partial or total amnesia for the entire period of sedation. That is to say, you will not remember most (or sometimes all) of the procedure. Meanwhile, the drugs we use will give you a very pleasant feeling of euphoria.
•  Oral Sedation - Twilight sleep is an excellent way to refer to pill-based sedation. There are a variety of sedation medications that are taken orally or "sublingually" (under the tongue). With oral sedation, your dentist can work more effectively by helping you become as comfortable as possible using well-established and proven methods. Not put to sleep, but very comfortable with a cloudy memory or the visit.
•  Nitrous Oxide - Sometimes called "laughing gas," is one option we may offer to help make you more comfortable during specific procedures. It is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions. You will breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes, you should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. You may feel light-headed or tingling in your arms and legs. Some people say their arms and legs feel heavy. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed.

If you are unsure what sedation option is best for you, schedule a consultation with our team.
