Your Dentist Can Help with Common Mouth Problems

Hey Neighbors!

When you have a cavity or a chipped tooth, the first thing you do is call your Salt Lake City dentist. While that is the right move, there are some common mouth problems that many people just suffer through when there are measures your dentist can take to ease discomfort or cure the problem altogether.

Cold Sores

Cold sores are a very common, but painful mouth issue. Cold sores are caused by a virus that can be passed from person to person through close contact like sharing lipstick or kissing. Most of the time, cold sores heal relatively quickly, but if healing is slow, there are medications you can use to help a cold sore heal faster.
If you find that your cold sores are very painful and slow to heal, your dentist can provide you with prescription medication. Also, if you get cold sores frequently, you should discuss the matter with your dentist to rule out any other underlying issues.

Bad Breath

You may think it is embarrassing to discuss chronic bad breath with your dentist, but you should know that bad breath is one of the most common mouth problems there is. Before visiting your dentist about bad breath, you should try regular brushing, increasing water intake, daily flossing, and avoiding foods that are known to cause bad breath.
If all of these issues still leave you with the problem, you should see your dentist, as bad breath can be an indicator for other health issues that require medical care.

Canker Sores

No one really knows what causes these painful lesions inside of your mouth, but some research suggests that stress, vitamin deficiency, heredity, or even hormones may trigger canker sores. Most canker sores last up to two weeks, but if you have canker sores that are taking longer to heal, consult your dentist.
While dentists can’t prevent canker sores, they can treat them through the use of numbing creams, prescription medication to aid in healing, or with dental lasers.
You don’t have to live with painful or embarrassing mouth problems. Your Salt Lake City dentist is trained to deal with all kinds of problems involving the mouth.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately.
