These Are Four Things Your Mouth Can Tell You

I came across this article and found it interesting.  It talks about four oral symptoms that possibly indicate an unlying health problem.  You can find the full article at: 4 Things Your Mouth Can Tell You About Your Health  It goes on to discuss these four symptoms:

  1. If you suddently have a bunch of new cavites.  If you are someone who doesn't often get a new cavity then you go to your dentist and suddenly you are told your have multiple areas of decay.  I am assuming you haven't drastically changed your diet to all Mountain Dew or have new medicines drying out your mouth.  This could indicate the begining of diabetes and you are not handling the sugar in your diet well.  See your physician and get checked out.
  2. Your teeth are wearing away.  It could mean that you have the acid reflux disease, (GERD).  This is also known as "heartburn".  This is when acid from your stomach comes into your mouth.  It is horribly hard on your teeth and over time can start to disolve them away.  Treatments include changing your diet and or medications that reduce the acid.
  3. You have bleeding gums.  This is the sign of inflammed gums, gingivitis or infected gums, periodontal disease.  This is the slippery slope that leads to tooth loss.  Improving your dental home care and seeing your dentist are the first steps to healing.
  4. You see white spots on your tongue.  This can be the sign of a fungal infection or thrush.  It could also indicate more serious issues like diabetes or a depressed immune system.  Pay close attention if you have this and see your dentist or physicain.

If you have any of these issues or just need to see a dentist, call us at 270-442-0256 or click for an appointment.  Visit Bohle Dental for more information about our practice.

Don't Be Nervous About Getting Your Dental Implants.

dental implantThese days it is easy to get a dental implant!  It is so easy in fact that many people take no pain medicine afterward their surgery.  Don't worry, we will give you something in case you might need it but time and time again people tell us they did not need anything or just some Tylenol.  Of course, if you are nervous about it, you can really make it easy using IV sedation.

Here are three reasons dental implant surgery has gotton so easy:

  1.   The procedure is first done on the computer.  So everything is planned out.  You will get a CT scan at your planning appointment and the doctor finds the best place to put your implant.  The guess work has been taken out for where the implant should go.  That way you get a much more accurate placement.
  2. You really only need a local anesthetic.  Yes, people do receive sedation for dental implants but it is needed to help them with their dental anxieties not because the surgery is difficult.  A simple local is all that is needed and you will be numb for your treatment.
  3. There is not alot a pain involved.  One big reason for this is the implant can now go straight thru a small opening in the gum.  In the old days it was needed to have a large section of gum traumatized, but not anymore.  This is a wonder for the patient as the amount of discomfort is very low.  I would recommend that you take some Tylenol and see how you do.

So if you have been considering getting dental implants but was worried about how hard it might be, now you know.  The lastest techniques have made the prodecure really easy.  Click on dental implants to learn more or call 270-442-0256.  Or you can click get an appointment.

Learn How Dental Implants Can Change Your Life

Dental implants can change your lifedental implants can change your life

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is no doubt, the dental implants can change the quality of your life.  It matters not if you are only missing a tooth or two or if you have a floating denture that needs stabilized; dental implants can change your life.

When you lose a tooth your jaw starts to experience bone loss.  Here are some of the issues associated with bone loss from lossing teeth:

  • The jaw begins to shrink where to tooth root used to be.
  • The facial structure begins to change from loss of support.
  • Eating and speaking changes occur as you lose you teeth.
  • You level of nutruition can be affected as you are unable to eat the foods you need.
  • You may lose self-confidence that affects your social life.
  • You may not smile or laugh because you don't want to show the missing teeth.

Dental implants replace the missing teeth.  They stimulate the bone so it does not further dissolve in the areas you  place the implants.  Your smile is restored or your denture is stabilzed and the above problems do not continue.  We often hear from  our patients that they wish they gotten he implants sooner.  Do not wait if you have missing teeth.  Call us at 270-442-0256 for a consultation or visit our website at:  http://www.bohledental.com/dental-implants.html
