4 Oral Ailments To Discuss With Your Los Altos Dentist

Bad Breath Treatment Yuma

We all go to the dentist for check-ups and toothaches, but there are other less obvious issues that your dentist can help you with. Today, we would like to highlight some of the most common oral conditions that should be discussed with our team at the Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry.

1. Bad Breath. Sure, nobody wants to admit they have bad breath, but bad breath is usually caused by bacteria build-up in the mouth. This means that it might be a symptom of accelerating dental caries. Discuss it with your dentist who can help you overcome this problem. (All of your friends will thank you.)

2. Dry Mouth. Also known as xerostomia, this lack of saliva is very uncomfortable and can predispose dental patients to a host of troubles such as dental caries and gum disease. Some Yuma residents experience it because of prescription medications or chronic diseases, so make sure to bring a list of current prescriptions with you to your appointment

3. Jaw Issues. If you have a clicking jaw or jaw discomfort, be sure to schedule an appointment with your dentist ASAP! These symptoms can be signs of a harmful oral issue.

4. Teeth Grinding. If you’ve been stressed out and find that you’ve been grinding your teeth (or if your partner tells you that you’re doing it in your sleep!), discuss it with your dentist. A simple mouthguard can guard your teeth. If you have suffered damage from grinding such as fractured or chipped teeth, we will give you specifics about restorative dentistry.

We always want our patients to come to me with all of their oral concerns. We also offer a full menu of cosmetic dentistry services. Ask us about dental implants, teeth whitening, veneers, and dental crowns. We hope to educate Los Altos area residents on what these procedures are and how they can help you get the beautiful smile that you’ve always wanted.
