4 Oral Ailments To Discuss With Your Dentist

Bad Breath Treatment Baltimore

We all go to our dentist for cleanings and toothaches, but there are other less-obvious issues that we can help you with. In this post, we would like to consider some of the most prevalent oral conditions that should be discussed with us at Southern York Smile Care in Shrewsbury.

1. Bad Breath. Sure, nobody wants to admit that they have bad breath, but bad breath can be treated. It 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 ailment. (Your friends will appreciate it.)

2. Dry Mouth. Also known as xerostomia, this lack of saliva is very bothersome and can predispose dental patients to a host of troubles such as tooth decay and gum disease. Some people 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 suffer from jaw pain or notice a clicking sound, be sure to schedule an appointment with your dentist right away! These symptoms can be signs of a serious condition called temporomandibular disorder or TMD.

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 appliance can protect your teeth. If you have sufferred damage from grinding such as fractured or chipped teeth, we will give you details about restorative dentistry.

At Southern York Smile Care in Shrewsbury PA we provide cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.
