Extreme Wear — Magnolia Dental Care

Magnolia Dental Care - Seattle, WA

When the surface of your teeth are worn down, your entire body can be affected. Severe wear of the teeth is usually a sign of some larger problem. Before we treat the aesthetics of the teeth, we must treat the cause of the wear so your reconstructions function properly for years to come.

    Signs of Dental Wear

    The most obvious sign of dental wear is diminished tooth size. Other signs include:

    • Flattened chewing surfaces
    • Tenderness of the jaw muscles
    • Tooth sensitivity that may be the result of microscopic surface cracks
    • A bite that no longer meets correctly when closed
    • Headaches

    Causes of Dental Wear

    Without identifying the cause of dental wear, we would be unable to prevent future wear of the dental reconstruction. Some causes include:

    • Teeth grinding and clenching
    • Biting hard objects such as fingernails or using the teeth as tools
    • Misaligned teeth
    • Parkinson’s or other diseases of the nervous system

If left untreated, worn down teeth become more susceptible to decay and, potentially, tooth loss. If you notice any of the signs mentions above, call Magnolia Dental care to schedule an appointment.

I was very happy with the informative conversation I had with Dr. Moberly. He spoke to me like I was an intelligent person, and thinks about your whole body when thinking about the best way to approach your dental care. I was very pleased.

This was my first visit here. Dr. Moberly and staff were friendly, thorough, and made things easy to understand. And never before was I rewarded with chocolates after a visit to the dentist.

Best dentist experience I’ve ever had. Everyone that works there is super friendly. They genuinely appear to like where they work and who they work for. Dr. Moberly is awesome! I’ve never been to a dentist who checked my bone structure for things like oral cancer. He even used technology to diagnose my bite that I’ve never seen before. Based on my experience I’d recommend anyone I know to go there. I’ve found a good one!

Really good dental practice. They listen and explain. Moberly is up on latest developments (and teaches at UW extension). I have bad recession, and he recommended xylitol to prevent the bacteria that cause plaque from colonizing - that has made an enormous difference for me.

We moved to Seattle from out of state several months back and when I inevitably needed to find a dentist I went to Magnolia Dental Care. Previous reviews have said it all. The whole office staff and of course Dr. Moberly have been wonderful in addressing my dental issues. I feel so fortunate to have found this wonderful dental practice.

I just moved from a downtown Seattle dentist where the service level was beginning to go downhill. Dr Kent Moberly was literally the best dentist I have ever had. Night and day. He took the time to listen to me and provided real and detailed feedback and recommendations. I highly recommend...

Dr. Moberly is proud of his work and is a gentle, thorough, and cheerful dentist. In the past, I have been fearful of having work done, but Dr. explains procedures and works with me to be certain I am comfortable and at ease with procedures in order to keep my gums and teeth in great shape. He encourages me to speak up as he addresses my comfort and that has helped me to be confident in his care! His staff support his excellent attitude and work.

Fantastic outcome for my son post-orthodontia. He needed considerable cosmetic work, but you’d never know. Expensive since not part of insurance network, but worth it. Great service. Highly recommend.

Definitely the best family dentist around! Dr. Moberly and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Many dentists just look at your teeth and see potential profits. Dr. Moberly has been operating in Magnolia for ages, tries to understand you as a person to bring better context to his dental care. His approach towards treatment is much more comprehensive than a typical dentist. He understands medical factors other than tooth health and uses this knowledge to inform better and more confident treatment decisions. If you're looking for a dentist worth developing a long term doctor-patient relationship with, he's the one!

Magnolia Dental Care is the best! Great dental care and nice, caring people. They are devoted to taking great care of their patients, and are grownups and take responsibility on the rare occasions when they make a mistake. Can't say enough good things about them

Dr. Moberly Is an extraordinary dentist! He was successful in saving my teeth when other professionals had said this was unlikely. In addition to having exemplary skill, he is also able to create a painless, anxiety free experience for his patients. He loves his work and genuinely cares about each individual patient. His patients, medical colleagues, and wonderful staff all think the world of him. I give him the highest recommendation!
