Oral Health Berkeley
5 Most Common Oral Complaints
All preventable and treatable!
1–Bad Breath: Don’t blame strong foods. Poor oral health is the major cause of chronic halitosis, and it can be a warning sign of gum disease, so if you have bad breath, we should take a look.
2–Tooth Decay: Plaque bacteria produce acids that attack tooth enamel, and if not removed from teeth through thorough brushing and flossing, cavities
3–Canker Sores: Their cause is unknown, but stress, diet, and weakened immunity can all play a part. If they persist, visit us as they can warn of other oral and overall health issues.
4–Gum Disease: Gingivitis is often caused by poor oral hygiene, and if left untreated, it can progress to periodontitis. If you have red, swollen, or bleeding gums, bad breath, mouth infections, or loose teeth, see us immediately. Gum disease is treatable and sometimes it’s even reversible!
5–Receding Gums or a Gummy Smile: Gum sculpting can fix a gummy smile, but if your gums are receding, you may have periodontitis. We can help stop further damage and make reparations. If you have oral health concerns, don’t wait for them to escalate.
