We all go to the dentist for cleanings and checkups, but there are other less-obvious issues that we can help you with at the Carrollton Dentist. Today, we would like to review some of the most common.
1. Bad Breath. Sure, nobody wants to admit that they have bad breath, but it happens, and it can be treated. It is usually caused by bacteria build-up in the mouth. This means that it might be a symptom of accelerating tooth decay. Discuss it with us, and we’ll help you overcome this malady. (Your friends will appreciate it.)
2. Dry Mouth. Also known as xerostomia, this lack of saliva is very irritating and can predispose dental patients to a host of issues such as cavities 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 experience frequent jaw pain or notice a clicking sound, be sure to schedule an appointment with your dentist immediately! 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 safeguard your teeth. If you have sufferred damage from grinding such as fractured or chipped teeth, we will give you specifics about restorative dentistry.
