4 Oral Ailments To Discuss With Your Tampa Dentist

4 Oral Ailments To Discuss With Your Tampa Dentist

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

1. Bad Breath. Sure, nobody wants to admit that 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 tooth decay. Discuss it with your dentist who can help you overcome this problem. (All of your Brandon FL 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 problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Some Valrico residents experience it because of certain medications or 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 Plant City dentist ASAP! These symptoms can be signs of a serious 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 protect you, and if you have any damage from grinding such as fractured teeth, ask about restorative dentistry.

Hi. I’m Dr. Jeff Bynum of Valrico,
and I want my patients to come to me with all of their oral concerns. The knowledgeable staff here at Five Star Dental Care would love to schedule an appointment with you and answer any questions you have about the conditions mentioned above, as well as questions about teeth whitening and Brandon FL dental implants.
