I never thought that as a 40-year-old Mommy I’d be facing the “you need braces” decision. But I started to feel some sensitivity on a back bottom tooth when I ate (not with hot or cold foods/drinks) and when I went for my most recent dental cleaning I discovered that I have been grinding my teeth.

All the way through the enamel and almost to the nerve! That’s why it’s sensitive.

Unfortunately, sensitive toothpaste cannot fix my problem.

So I tried, with no luck, several night guards. But I need a proper fitting one that won’t come out of my mouth while I’m sleeping.

And my problem got worse because the reason I wore through my enamel in less than six months (in between my teeth cleanings) is because my teeth were not aligned properly and I was grinding my teeth.

Which means my dentist suggested either getting a mac-daddy night guard (costing well over $500).

Or just biting-the-bullet and getting braces to fix my bite AND the problem of grinding my teeth, along with realigning my smile.

What’s interesting is that the braces won’t actually help your mouth stop grinding your teeth, BUT when you use Invisalign they cover both the top and bottom teeth with a thin layer of protection that ensures any grinding doesn’t damage your teeth. Genius!

Thankfully, my oldest son got braces last year so I’ve done all the orthodontic research and we truly love our orthodontist, Dr. Turke.

When I was researching my orthodontic options, I made several phone call to set up appointments and went to each of the appointments.

My final results for the Tampa Bay and Brandon area found that Dr. Turke won hands down for several reasons:

  1. 20% Lower Starting Price than the other two competitors I visited
  2. Reviews – The reviews for Dr. Turke’s office were unbelievable, not just online, but also around the community! It seem that everyone in my homeschool group, church, and friends knew Dr.Turke because their family or someone they knew used his service. And they all had a positive experience. WIN!
  3. No Pressure to “sign up today” – the other two orthodontists were almost bullying me to sign immediately that day. Without even talking to my husband! I was so shocked. Dr.Turke’s office said I had 30-Days to decide and that was it. No pressure!
  4. Customer Service – Everyone told us it would be a great experience with Dr.Turke. And seeing is truly believing, after over a year of visiting Dr. Turke’s office, I agree with what everyone said, “He IS the best”.

You see, this is not the first time I’ve had braces for my teeth. I first had braces when I was in High School and after I got them off, I would take the retainer out of my mouth IN MY SLEEP.

Not realizing I had pulled them out of my mouth, one morning I stepped on when I got out of bed. After having this happen a second time, I lost my retainers and my teeth shifted.

Now I’m getting Invisalign braces to straighten my teeth AND alleviate the pain in my jaw from grinding my teeth while I sleep.

Call or email Dr. Turke for a consultation today to take advantage of this great opportunity to have straight teeth and reduce the strain on your jaw from grinding your teeth.
