You want to look and feel your best and the Yuba City Dentistry Group is here to play a part in accomplishing that goal for you and your family. What are some common concerns of our patients and how do our dentists help them maintain their oral health?
Gum disease is inflammation of the gum tissue. Many don’t even notice it at first. As a result, the majority of people have had gingivitis at some point. This is chiefly because some sixty percent of Americans do not floss daily and about twenty percent never do! Untreated gum disease leads to serious dental complications and higher dental bills. That’s because multiplying bacteria that are left untouched cause inflammation and infection via plaque and tartar.
For example, do you bleed when you brush or floss? If so, that’s the first sign of gum disease. This 100% preventable disease is curable with a balanced diet, daily brushing and flossing, and routine dental visits for cleanings.
A TMJ disorder is diagnosed when the temporomandibular joints of the jaw do not work properly. TMJ problems are caused by stress, arthritis, trauma or teeth grinding (bruxism). When a person has TMJ issues it is painful to eat and talk. Our Yuba City dentists discover the causes of your TMJ pain, and prescribe the best course of treatment, starting with those that are minimally invasive.
Tooth decay, worn fillings, gum disease, worn enamel or gum recession may cause tooth sensitivity. This is a common and readily treated dental problem. If you experience tooth sensitivity, mention it at your next cleaning appointment with the Yuba City Dentistry Group. Sometimes switching to a sensitive teeth toothpaste or using certain mouthrinses is all that is needed to resolve it.
Healthy teeth come in varying shades of white, so “yellow” teethare usually just a cosmetic issue that is easily improved. Many patients want brighter teeth, and our dentists can whiten your smile in just one visit. For professional whitening results, ask the Yuba City Dentistry Group for a whitening consultation.
Our Yuba City family dentists and hygienists are available to answer your dental questions and concerns on many more topics besides these. Visit our website for more information. You can also call today to schedule an appointment or request a consultation online.
