Dreaming of a Perfect Smile?

Valley Family Dentistry remedies dental nightmares to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

There’s no feeling like waking from a good night’s sleep, fully rested and ready to go. On the other hand, when you can’t get the sleep you need, it’s twice as hard to get your day going. Grinding your teeth at night can be enough to disrupt your sleep patterns and leave you frustrated. At Valley Family Dentistry, Dr. Landeros and her competent team can get that issue sorted out for you, no problem. But there is another nighttime issue we want to discuss that has stressed out some of our patients in the past: the dental nightmare.

Have you ever had one of those nightmares where your teeth start falling out? The dream usually starts with one… But before you get the chance to realize you’re dreaming, the one next to it is loose, setting of a chain of wiggly teeth threatening to leave you with a mouth full of gums. Dream dictionaries and common sense tell us that such a dream has to do with insecurity about your appearance, as the smile is one of the first features people notice.

Do you feel like your waking life is troubled by your teeth, as well? Whether you have a cavity or deep root damage, the sooner you get it treated the less likely it is to give you trouble in the future. Much like the nightmare described above, if neglected, the problem can spread. Keeping up to date with your dental appointments can keep your oral health at top form, to prevent those small problems from becoming big ones.

If you’ve never had a teeth-falling-out dream, consider yourself lucky! There are few situations that are as unsettling as losing your teeth. Thankfully, Valley Family Dentistry can handle all real-life dental nightmares so you can sleep at night assured that your pearly whites will stay healthy (and securely in your mouth) for many years to come.
