Your Dentist Does A Lot More Than Fill Cavities

Bad Breath Treatment Vista

You might think of  Oceanside Dental Excellence when you think about getting your teeth cleaned in Vista. Most individuals know that they can go to their dentist for toothaches, cleanings, and bleeding gums (not to mention cosmetic dentistry procedures such as a smile makeover), but there are some lesser-known oral concerns that your dentist can help you with.

Dry mouth, technically called xerostomia, is caused by a lack of saliva and can be quite uncomfortable. It also predisposes dental patients to a host of problems such as cavities and gum disease. A lot of men and women experience dry mouth because of medications or medical conditions. Make sure you bring a list of current medications with you to your appointment.

Bad breath is usually a result of bacteria build-up in the mouth, and regular trips to your dentist can help you keep your mouth clean and the bacteria count within a sweet-smelling range. It can also be a symptom of gum disease. Do you have good oral hygiene and still have bad breath? Then your dentist can help you discover the source of your halitosis.

Did you know that some dentists can help with chronic snoring? Some kinds of sleep apnea can be treated with an oral appliance. We offer a variety of methods to solve your snoring and sleep apnea issues.

Dentists also perform oral cancer checks when they examine a patient. Oral cancer is much harder to treat if it is not detected early.
