COMMON DENTAL PROBLEMS
Gingivitis (Gum Disease) is an inflammation of the gums that is usually caused by plaque. It is the earliest and most easily treated from of gum disease, as it only affects the gums, but it must be treated to avoid more serious gum disease.
An impacted/wisdom tooth is one that fails to properly emerge through the gums. Dr. James Sparaga will recommend extraction of impacted wisdom teeth if they pose a problem for your mouth and other teeth.
Periodontitis (Periodontal Disease) is advanced gum disease. While gingivitis, the earlier stage, affects only the gums, periodontitis is infection that has spread to surrounding tissue, including tooth and bone.
Tooth Sensitivity is a very common problem that can be treated effectively by Dr. James Sparaga with different products and techniques. It occurs when gums have receded or tooth enamel is worn down to reveal the sensitive parts of the tooth.
Bruxism (Teeth Grinding) is either the clenching or grinding of teeth, or both of them together. Dr. James Sparaga will often recommend a mouth appliance to prevent damage to your teeth, and stress reduction to change the behavior.
There are many possible causes for a toothache. Two of the most common dental causes are the presence of a cavity or an abscess. Some of the other causes of toothache are quite serious, so you should certainly consult Dr. James Sparaga for a proper diagnosis.
