4 Oral Ailments To Discuss With Your Dentist
- Posted on: Mar 26 2021
This article is about some of the most frequent conditions that should be discussed with us, at Flax Dental in Atlanta.
There is a solution for each one of these issues.
- Tooth Decay. This is easily the most common dental problem. Tooth decay, or cavities, occur when plaque combines with the sugars and/or starches in food to produce acids that attack tooth enamel. We can always do a drill-and-fill, but prevention via regular brushing and flossing is best.
- Dry Mouth. Also known as xerostomia, this lack of saliva is very bothersome and can predispose you to a host of dilemmas such as decay and gum disease. It’s a common side effect of prescription medications, so make sure to bring a list of current prescriptions with you to your appointment.
- Jaw Issues. If you suffer from jaw pain or notice a clicking sound, be sure to schedule an appointment with us immediately. These symptoms can be signs of a condition called temporomandibular disorder, or TMD.
- Dull Teeth. Even with regular brushing, most people see their smile grow dull over the years. Professional teeth whitening can revitalize them!
