Dental Implants

Dental implants are an extraordinary blend of science and art. Made of titanium, dental implants are securely anchored into the jaw and serve as roots for dental crowns. In many cases, dental implants – and mini dental implants, the smaller version -- are considered the best option for replacing missing teeth. They are also used to replace dental bridges or partial dentures, or to provide support for dentures. Dental implants offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options. They look, feel and function just like real teeth! With dental implants, surrounding teeth are left untouched. Finally, dental implants are exceptionally reliable. Year after year, dental implants have had high success rates and typically last 15-20 years.

TMJ Treatment

If you've been living with persistent jaw pain, ear pain and headaches, you could have TMJ – temporomandibular jaw disorder. TMJ can often be traced back to an improper bite, misaligned jaw joints, or an injury to the jaw or face. TMJ treatment from a dentist can relieve the discomfort. Although TMJ treatment varies from patient to patient, it typically involves one or several procedures, including the use of an orthotic splint, enamel reshaping, dental crowns, dental braces or night guards. The goal of TMJ treatment is to stabilize your bite so that your teeth, jaw muscles and jaw joints work properly together without strain – and without pain!


OroFacial Pain

Dr. Karna understands the fact that you are an individual with unique experiences, emotions, and environments which may contribute to your symptoms, illnesses, and treatment outcomes.  Research shows that your emotions and physical pain are often connected.  Both anxiety and depression can affect your threshold for tolerating pain and increase the intensity of the pain you feel.  This can become a vicious cycle.


Night / Sports Guards

Teeth clenching could disrupt a good night's sleep, not just yours but your sleeping companions. There are different methods on how to treat teeth grinding. It is very important for the instances of teeth grinding to be observed, screened, and diagnosed. This is not very hard to do, because there could be wear facets on some of the teeth, (Initially the eye teeth), chipping or wear on the anterior or posterior teeth. Guards keep the upper teeth from grinding with the lower teeth, offering a possible solution to teeth clenching problems with possible reduction of morning headaches, reduce stress and tension in or around the temporomandibular (TMD) joint with the reduction of chipping or breakage of dental work or fractured teeth. Sometimes there is increased tooth sensitivity to cold. Then the chances are high that tooth grinding or clenching has caused this.

Sleep Apnea

Cessation of breathing during sleep may be caused by an airway obstruction, Central nervous system disorder, or a combination of the two resulting in a person's inability to function and ultimately reducing their quality of life.  Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common type, and is usually caused by a collapse in the volume of the airway, typically due to the sized and position of the tongue and soft palate.
