Tired of Grinding? Atlanta, GA

Do you grind your teeth at night or clinch them during the day? Do you often get head and neck pain, have sore jaws while chewing, or hear pops or clicks in your jaw joints?  Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, also referred to as TMJ or TMD, affects the quality of life and can present itself through symptoms like these.

TMJ is the source of chronic pain for many people. Sufferers experience uncomfortable symptoms such as headaches, neck pain, sore jaws, and broken and worn teeth. These symptoms occur for a reason: an unbalanced bite where the upper and lower jaws meet. Fortunately, treatment is available to restore your optimal relaxed jaw position and alleviate the discomforts of bite misalignment.

Teeth grinding and clinching is a subconscious muscle activity. TMJ sufferers grind without realizing it, until a symptom such as a fragmented tooth, facial pain, headaches or soreness occurs. Left untreated, TMJ can result in severe wear or fracturing of your teeth. Fractured and worn teeth can lead to costly and lengthy treatments.

Neuromuscular dentistry is the science of finding a person’s optimal relaxed jaw position (their correct bite) and then devising treatments to make it permanent, thus eliminating symptoms and discomfort. The most common treatment for TMJ disorder includes wearing an oral appliance designed especially for you.

A custom-made clear, hard plastic appliance that fits over the upper or lower teeth will be designed from models of your teeth. Worn at night, your appliance prevents the top and bottom molars from making contact and alleviates the pressure that grinding causes on the teeth and jaws. With proper treatment your symptoms can be relieved, preventing neck pain, facial pain, and headaches while protecting and preserving your natural teeth.

I was recommended this practice from another dentist who told me this is where she would send her own family. I can definitely see why. This is a state of the art practice that is clean, modern, and well lit. The staff did a superb job.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

Carrie G.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
