Bad breath is embarrassing, and sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you just can’t get the smell escaping your lips to go away! Halitosis, also known as bad breath, can be caused by several issues which may be out of your control such as genetics, acid reflux, diabetes, sinus problems and certain medications. However, there are many reasons why your breath might smell and ways to fight bad breath and even prevent it. Gum disease, poor oral health, and cavities are common causes of bad breath that can be treated and eliminate the problem. Your dentist is the best person to identify the cause of your bad breath and recommend treatment options best suited for you.
Bleeding gums are one of the most common signs that something is wrong in your mouth. While we may ignore bleeding gums and assume that we are just brushing and flossing too aggressively, healthy gums shouldn’t bleed. There are different reasons that gums may bleed, like an underlying health condition, gingivitis, gum disease, pregnancy and side effects to medication. So, it’s important to determine the reason or underlying cause and treat it appropriately, before it becomes a more serious problem. Routine check-ups and teeth cleanings with our dental professionals at Elite Dental Care is the best way to stay on track and eliminate bleeding gums.
Suddenly breaking or chipping a tooth or teeth can be an alarming experience. Dental accidents can happen to anybody, regardless of a person’s oral health. If you find yourself in a situation that results in trauma to your mouth, such as a chipped or broken tooth, seeing your dentist as soon as possible is the most critical thing you can do. There are several ways your dentist can treat a broken tooth depending on how severe the damage is. Some options your dentist may consider are dental fillings, crowns, root canals, veneers, implants, and bridges. Treatment varies from case-to-case and your dentist will discuss the best options available in your situation.
Cavities, also known as tooth decay or caries, occurs when bacteria and acid destroys and penetrates the hard outer layer of the tooth called the enamel creating a hole. Cavities begin as tiny holes that get bigger and bigger if left untreated. Cavities are caused by a combination of factors, including plaque and bacteria, sipping sugary drinks, eating sugary food, frequent snacking and not cleaning your teeth well every day. At Elite Dental Care, our dentists can diagnose cavities proactively at your routine dental visits and discuss the best ways to prevent cavities like maintaining good mouth health with daily brushing and flossing, using a fluoride toothpaste, and reducing sugary foods and drinks in your diet.
A dental abscess, also known as tooth infection or an abscessed tooth, occurs when a pus-filled pocket caused by a bacterial infection forms anywhere on the tooth. Depending on where and why the tooth infection occurs, it may be referred to by different names such as periapical abscess or periodontal abscess. So, what causes an abscessed tooth? It occurs when bacteria builds up in the innermost portion of the tooth. Bacteria can get inside the tooth through small cracks or a cavity. Tooth abscesses and infections can be incredibly damaging and painful. If you notice symptoms of pain, swelling, infection, sensitivity to hot, cold and/or pressure, contact your dentist promptly.
Missing teeth can have a significant impact on your overall quality of life as we use our teeth for chewing, speaking, and smiling; hence when one or more teeth are missing, this can adversely affect our function and appearance. A missing tooth can cause neighboring and opposing teeth to shift which can change your bite and affect your chewing ability. Multiple missing teeth can lead to bone loss and the appearance of sunken cheeks. Fortunately, there are several treatment options available to replace missing teeth including dental implants, fixed bridges and removeable dentures. Our experienced dentists will be more than happy to help explore all your options so that you can make the most informed decision for replacing your missing teeth.
A toothache may feel like a sharp or shooting pain, a throbbing pain, intermittent pain that comes and goes, a dull ache, or pain in the jaw or sinus area. Moreover, a toothache may hurt around the clock or may only feel noticeable during activities like eating, chewing and biting. There are several reasons a tooth will hurt. It’s most frequently brought on by a cavity, gum disease, or infection like an abscessed tooth. Unfortunately, tooth pain can be very disruptive to daily life and can intensify at night disrupting sleep. Any pain lasting more than a day or two, wakes you up at night and/or is infected requires a visit to our office.
