Wisdom Teeth Extraction At Dental Partners Of Boston

MOST OF US HAVE HEARD AT LEAST ONE TALE OF A WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTION and the recovery process. Wisdom teeth are different for everyone. Some people can end up with two, four, or even none at all. They can grow in perfectly straight, slightly crooked, or completely sideways under the gums. A lot of times, even if they grow in straight, our mouths doesn’t have quite enough room for those extra molars back there and they can cause the rest of your teeth to move out of place in compensation. They can also be quite hard to reach with a toothbrush and floss, resulting in infection and decay.

Consequently, most people need to get them removed at some point in their lives.

Here at Dental Partners of Boston, our gifted team of oral surgeons are very adept at removing wisdom teeth, and they have performed thousands of extractions! Most surgeries take less than an hour and are done right in our office. Before the procedure begins, we will walk you through every step of the procedure and make sure all of your questions are answered. The process will be over in the blink of an eye!

If you think it may be time to have your wisdom teeth removed, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with us. We’d love to let you know your options and help you decide what your best plan of action is. We promise you’ll be in the best of hands! 

Feel free to join us on Facebook to stay informed about everything going on in our dental practice. We look forward to connecting with you there!

Learn How Our Doctors Are Helping Fight Diabetes


THIS YEAR, OUR VERY OWN DR. GUZMAN WAS FEATURED IN A COMMERCIAL hosted by the Massachusetts Diabetes Education Program (MDEP) Coalition.
 The members of this unique coalition play an important role in diabetes management, education and prevention.

Pharmacists, podiatrists, optometrists, and dental care professionals (PPOD) like Dr. Guzman work together with primary care providers to ensure that diabetes care is continuous and patient centered. These special PPOD professionals provide appropriate treatment for those with diabetes, refer them to other health professionals if necessary, and educate them about the disease so that they can practice self-management and receive proper care.

“If you have diabetes it’s important to know your blood sugar level, blood pressure and cholesterol, and to review your medications with your pharmacist each year. It’s also important to bring all your medicines and visit your optometrist and podiatrist at least once a year and your dentist every six months, to avoid serious, diabetes related health problems such as blindness, foot amputations, drug interactions and heart disease.”

If you have a history of Diabetes in your family, learn about the ways you can prevent diabetes, and make sure visit our practice regularly for routine checkups. We’d love to do all we can to help. 

Is Snoring Interrupting Your Sleep? We Can Help You Sleep Soundly Again.

IF YOU SNORE, OR HAPPEN TO LIVE WITH SOMEONE WHO DOES, you’re no stranger to interrupted sleep. Snoring most frequently leads to issues with sleep depravation (for the snorer AND anyone within hearing distance), and it can also contribute to serious health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

Well, we have some good news. Snoring isn’t something you have to live with forever! There are actually quite a few solutions out there, and here at Dental Partners of Boston we happen to offer a pretty convenient one!

It is our goal to make sure all our patients are as healthy and happy as possible, which is why we solve snoring problems every day with snore guards. These convenient tools are small, flexible, comfortable, and convenient—and they don’t require hoses, batteries, masks, or anything complicated. Our snore guards closely resemble athletic mouthpieces and you don’t have to worry about anything uncomfortable like needles, X-rays, lab work, drugs, or dental tools.

If you are tired of keeping yourself or your loved ones up with your snoring, contact our practice today! It’s time to sleep soundly again, and we want nothing more than to show you how.

Has Your Jaw Been Hurting Lately? Talk To Us.

IF YOU HAVE RECENTLY BEEN DEALING WITH PAIN IN YOUR JAW or trouble opening your mouth, you may have a TMJ disorder. The good news is, this is not a rare condition, and it is something our specialized doctors can help with! It’s time for your days of jaw pain to come to an end.

“TMJ” stands for temporomandibular joints, which are the joints in front of your ears that attach your jaw to your skull. These are the joints that allow us to open and close our mouths, chew, swallow, and speak. Pretty important functions, huh!? 

Your joints, muscles, nerves, and teeth all work together to keep your jaw properly aligned and functional. When any part of this equation isn’t working properly, painful conditions such as TMJ and other serious dental problems can develop. This can be triggered by anything from a major trauma or accident, to teeth-clenching or rheumatoid arthritis. Some symptoms of TMJ disorder include migraines, facial or back pain, sensitive and sore teeth, limited jaw movement, popping in the jaw joints, etc.

Unfortunately, the list goes on and on…

There are a variety of TMJ treatment methods that all depend on your particular case and how it was caused. Some are quite conservative therapies, while other approaches are more aggressive. Speak to one of our multi-specialty dentists today. Together, we’ll work closely with you to determine the best course of treatment so that we may alleviate your pain.

If you’d like additional information about your specific condition, please make an appointment at your earliest convenience.

Straighten Your Teeth With Hassle-Free Lumineers!

HERE AT DENTAL PARTNERS OF BOSTON, WE UNDERSTAND THAT a bright, beautiful smile can make all the difference when it comes to confidence and self esteem. This is why all our doctors are committed to helping our patients achieve the smile they’ve always dreamed of—and Lumineers may be just the way to do that!

Lumineers are porcelain dental veneers with a twist. Unlike regular veneers, these thin smile shapers can be applied to your teeth without any shaving or grinding down—offering patients a painless way to a permanently white and perfectly aligned smile.

By replacing the popular pressed ceramic products with a traditional porcelain build-up technique, our team is able to make shade changes, correct orthodontic problems, and make other cosmetic improvements while removing a minimal amount of patient enamel.

Lumineers can be placed over existing dental crowns or bridgework without having to replace them. They are also quite aesthetically pleasing because they block out undesirable colors and allow the beauty of the natural teeth to shine through. In only two easy dental visits, you can have a painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth.

If you are wondering whether or not lumineers are the solution for you then set up a smile consultation today! One of our doctors would love to go through your options with you.
