4 Oral Ailments To Discuss With Your Dentist

Bad Breath Treatment Mt. Vernon

We all go to the dentist for exams and cleanings, but there are other less-obvious issues that your dentist can help you with. In this post from the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria VA, we would like to consider some of the most frequent oral conditions our patients discuss.

1. Bad Breath. Sure, nobody wants to admit that they have bad breath, but bad breath can be treated. It is usually linked to 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 condition.

2. Dry Mouth. Also known as xerostomia, this lack of saliva is very irritating and can predispose dental patients to a host of troubles such as dental caries and gum disease. Some individuals 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 when you open or close your mouth, be sure to talk to us about it at your next appointment. 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), tell us. A simple appliance can safeguard your teeth.

At the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria VA, our services include family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next appointment with us today.
