Your Dentist Does A Lot More Than Fill Cavities
Most people know they can go to their dentist for toothaches, cleanings, and bleeding gums. But Town Dental Group in Mint Hills reminds you there are lesser-known oral concerns that we can help you with.
Dry mouth, technically called xerostomia, is caused by a lack of saliva and can be quite uncomfortable. It also makes you vulnerable to a host of issues such as cavities and gum disease. Causes of dry mouth include medications and medical conditions. Make sure you bring a list of current medications with you to your appointment.
Bad breath is usually a result of bacteria build-up in the mouth, and regular trips to your dentist can help you keep your mouth clean and the bacteria count within a sweet-smelling range. Do you have good oral hygiene and still have bad breath? Then your dentist can help you discover the source of your halitosis.
Jaw clicking and jaw discomfort are symptoms you should have checked immediately. They can be the result of a serious jaw condition.
Did you know that some dentists can help with chronic snoring? Oral appliances can treat some forms of sleep apnea.
We also perform oral cancer checks. Oral cancer is much harder to treat if it is not detected early.
While checkups and cleanings are a basic part of Town Dental Group offerings, our dentists also provide a wide range of other services, and have evening and weekend hours for your convenience. Make an appointment with us today.
