Healthy Mouth Tips

It is important for adults to take care of their teeth. We all know that children and teens need to pay attention to their teeth and properly care for them to prevent gum disease and decay. The same holds true for adults. Dental care is so crucial in complete oral health and if you have any concerns about your oral health, you should speak with the team at C.S. Family Dental today.

TMJ is a problem that many patients face, and the main symptom of the disorder is jaw joint pain. Often, if you have TMJ, you will notice a popping or clicking sound coming from your jaw. Some individuals will experience TMJ due to bruxism, which is also known as teeth grinding. Individuals who grind their teeth also suffer from other complications such as fractures and worn down teeth. If you are experiencing any problems with TMJ, it is important that you speak with our dentist today.

Periodontal Disease
Once a person has hit the ripe age of 35, he or she is more likely to start losing teeth due to periodontal disease than to tooth decay. Many Americans live with gum disease and do not even know it. It is important that you maintain a good oral healthcare routine in your home and attend your regular dental checkups. If periodontal disease is caught early, it can be prevented and treated. Periodontal disease that is not caught early can lead to bone or tooth loss.

Oral Cancer
Men who are aged 40 and older are the most at risk for oral cancer. In addition, individuals who smoke tobacco products or drink alcohol are at a higher risk. When you come in for your dental checkup, our team will check for any symptoms of oral cancer.

Break Down of Dental Fillings
Dental fillings do not last a lifetime and are made to last about 8 to 10 years; however, they can last up to 20 years in some cases. When a filling breaks down in the tooth, bacteria is able to enter the tooth, and this can lead to pain for the patient. When you come into our Denver, CO office for a checkup, our dentist will check all of your fillings to ensure they are intact and in good condition.

Female Patients
Female patients have some health requirements that are unique to their time in life. It is important that the dentist you work with understands this and can adapt. Some of the most common health considerations include menstruation, puberty, menopause, pregnancy, oral contraceptives, and osteoporosis.
