Common Dental Problems

At Yu Smile Dental, we recognize that a healthy smile is more than just an attractive asset; it is also essential to one's overall well-being. We provide skilled, experienced care to create beautiful smiles that support overall wellness. 

While we emphasize the importance of preventive care, we also offer prompt treatment and the latest solutions to address the following common dental issues: 

  • Dental Decay
  • Toothaches or Infection
  • Gapped, Crowded, or Crooked Teeth
  • Missing Teeth
  • Gum Disease and Bad Breath
  • Stained, Discolored, or Otherwise Imperfect Teeth
  • Chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth
  • Damaged or Broken Restorations
  • Dry Mouth
  • Ulcerations
  • TMJ
  • Unerupted, Impacted Teeth

Remember, good oral health supports overall wellness.

The fact of the matter is that dental disease or other conditions that adversely affect the health of your teeth, gums, jaws, and structures in and around the oral cavity can also impact your overall well-being. Today, an increasing number of links are being established between oral health problems and various issues such as digestive disorders, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. 

The reverse is also true. According to statistics, more than 90% of all systemic diseases (diseases that affect the organs and systems in the body) manifest themselves with signs and symptoms in the oral cavity. Experiencing dry mouth, bad breath, gum problems, ulcerations, or other oral lesions may indicate an underlying systemic condition, which your dentist may be the first healthcare professional to detect.

Assessing all aspects of your smile

While checking for the development of harmful dental conditions such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer, we also look for indications of problematic health issues that may have originated elsewhere in the body. Furthermore, we check your bite, the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and the relationship between the upper and lower jaws to determine if any limitations or misalignment are present. 

As performed by our team, a comprehensive exam also offers valuable insights into the impact dietary choices, eating disorders, harmful habits, certain medications, and inadequate oral hygiene practices can have on your oral health.

As your trusted partner in care, your oral health and overall well-being are our top priorities. 

Patients can count on our office for the guidance, resources, and treatment needed to enjoy optimal oral health and the benefits of a beautiful smile.
