The foundation of any oral health care routine is regular checkups from the caring staff at The Art of Smile. Professional cleanings not only keep your teeth looking great, but they also remove the plaque and tartar that lead to tooth decay and gum disease. The thorough examination you will receive allows us to detect potential threats long before they become a serious problem.
Your saliva is one of your most valuable allies against oral health maladies. It keeps your mouth clean and contains antibodies that fight off the bacteria that cause tooth decay. So if you are not producing enough saliva, your mouth is at a much greater risk for oral health problems.
The first thing we will do to treat dry mouth is look for the cause. Often, dry mouth is simply the result of dehydration and can be remedied by drinking more water. But sometimes it can be a side effect of medication you are taking. In this case, we can prescribe tablets to counteract this effect.
Persistent bad breath, also known as halitosis, affects millions of people in this country. More often than not, bad breath is the result of decomposing food particles in your mouth. In this case, a thorough cleaning and instructions on more effective home oral hygiene habits will solve the problem.
If poor oral hygiene is not the cause of your halitosis, we may need to perform a saliva test to discover the source of your bad breath. Once we know what is causing it, we can prescribe whatever treatment or course of action is appropriate. Whatever the case, the caring professionals at The Art of Smile will help make sure bad breath is not a problem for you any longer.
Gum disease is one of the most common and potentially dangerous oral health ailments you can experience. Advanced gum disease, or periodontitis, is a direct contributor to tooth decay, tooth loss, infection, and other oral health problems. But gum disease has even been linked to systemic health issues, like heart disease.
The early stages of gum disease, known as gingivitis, can be very hard to detect, which is why regular examinations at The Art of Smile dental office are so important. If we catch it in time, gum disease can be treated non-surgically with deep cleaning and an antibiotic mouthwash from our periodontist. But if gum disease goes untreated for too long, gum surgery from our periodontist may be necessary to treat the disease and restore healthy gum tissue.
