The right at home oral care and consistent checkups with your dentist are the key to preventing many dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease. However, even with the best teeth brushing and flossing, eating all the right foods, and avoiding bad habits, issues you may not have expected can occur. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and her team at StarBrite Dental in San Jose, CA, provide a wide range of services to help with all of their patients’ dental care needs, including:
- Toothaches: The pain from a tooth ache can range from mild and irritating to throbbing and intense. While you can often mask the pain with over the counter pain medication, it’s important that you make an appointment to see the dentist immediately. Often, the pain you feel is the body’s first indication that something isn’t right and pain medication will only hide the symptoms, they will not fix the problem.
- Gum disease: When bacteria develop and grow under the gums, it can lead to infection. The beginning stages of gum disease are easy to treat. If you notice that you have bleeding when you brush your teeth or if your gums are sore and inflamed, see your dentist for an easy treatment plan that often includes a professional deep cleaning of your teeth and mouthwash. Left untreated, the gum disease will continue to grow and can cause your teeth to become lose.
- Teeth sensitivity: That sharp feeling of sensitivity when you eat or drink something hot, cold, or sweet can not only cause you to feel uncomfortable it can take the fun out of eating. Unfortunately, tooth sensitivity is a common ailment among dental patients. If you find yourself avoiding a certain side of your mouth or certain foods and beverages that you love, an appointment with your dentist can help determine the cause of the sensitivity and develop a plan to treat it.
- Broken or lost tooth: A tooth can be damaged for many reasons. For example, a fall can cause you to chip your tooth, a stray fly ball can knock the tooth out completely. Not only can a broken or missing tooth cause you to feel self-conscious, it can lead to further problems in the mouth as the other teeth begin to shift out of place.
