Some of the most commonplace mouth problems can be prevented with proper home care and regular checkups.  And the good news is that they’re all treatable!

1.       Bad Breath: Don’t blame strong foods.  Poor oral health is the major cause of chronic halitosis and it can be a warning sign of gum disease, so if you have bad breath, we should take a look.

2.       Tooth Decay: Plaque bacteria produce acids that attack tooth enamel and it not removed from teeth through thorough brushing and flossing, cavities will form.  We can fill cavities, but the can severely compromise teeth, the only part of the body that cannot heal itself.

3.       Canker Sores: Their cause is unknown, but stress, diet and weakened immunity can all play a part.  If they persist, visit us as they can warn of other oral and overall health issues.

4.       Gum Disease: Gingivitis is often caused by poor oral hygiene, and if left untreated, it can progress to periodontitis.  If you have red, swollen or bleeding gums, bad breath, mouth infections, or loose teeth, see us immediately.  Gum disease is treatable and sometimes it’s even reversible!

        5.       Receding Gums or a Gummy Smile: Gum sculpting can fix a gummy smile, but if your gums are                  receding, you may have periodontitis.  We can help stop further damage and make reparations.
