When teeth are misaligned, they can cause a number of problems that if left untreated, can cause costly repairs or tooth loss down the road. In order to maintain your teeth for a lifetime, it is beneficial to get a professional diagnosis of the problems. Signs of problems are pain on chewing, loose teeth, cracked teeth, TMJ problems and unsightly wear and erosions, gum recession and tooth sensitivity.
With proper diagnosis, many of these issues can be corrected with a simple procedure, saving time and expense down the road.
- A removable appliance called a “Night guard” or “Occlusal guard” may be recommended.
- Helps minimize tooth wear due to grinding
- Reduces muscle pain and tension

My wife and I have been going to Dr. Bennett for over four years now. We both have the highest respect for her and her staff. I have had some very extensive dental work, including an implant and have been more than satisfied. We would both recommend her as a professional and a kind caring person.
I have been a patient of Dr. Bennett’s for over 10 years. When I first met Dr. Bennett, my teeth were struggling. Over subsequent years she has restored my teeth to an earlier conditioning status. Her expertise has only been surpassed by her gentleness and her integrity. I have happily recommended Dr. Bennett to other friends and family because she has always been a wonderful and thoughtful person and professional.
Dr. Bennett has cared for me and my family for several years. She and her staff are part of our health routine. We are seen for what’s needed, on time, in pleasant surroundings, by people who are well trained. Even an appointment for the dreaded filling is friendly, painless, and positive.
Dr. Bennett herself is an artist. She has saved some of my teeth, worked on long ago and failing, with great crowns and perfect color matching.
I would like to say “thank you” to Dr. Bennett and Staff for always being there for me – for my regular check ups and cleanings – for “fixing” my teeth (cavities and crowns) and always being gentle and caring for my needs and comfort. Dr Bennett has been my Dentist from the time that I moved here from Sherwood, Oregon. And, I have been very fortunate to have found her.
One of the hardest things about moving is needing to find a new dentist. We are so fortunate to have found Dr. Bennett five years ago. The office atmosphere is so calm and friendly. Dr. Bennett is so thorough in her exams, suggestions for preventions and craftsmanship that we feel very secure in our dental health.
