Protect Your Health With Regular Dentist Visits

Do you have bad breath that doesn’t seem to go away? A sore spot on your gums? Or maybe a new sensitivity to hot food? Sudden changes in your oral health often indicate other health problems.

The main symptoms to watch for:

  • Sensitivity to hot or cold foods
  • Discoloration in teeth or gums
  • Open sores on the tongue or gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Bad breath even after brushing
  • Shooting nerve pain in your jaw

If you notice these symptoms, schedule an appointment with Loudoun Family Dental in Ashburn. Our team will use the latest dental technology to determine the cause of your symptoms. Even if the changes in your oral health aren’t a sign of an underlying medical condition, you will want treatment right away.

Medical Conditions and Oral Health

Just as sudden changes in your oral health can be signs of underlying medical problems, the reverse is true. Being diagnosed with some diseases and disorders may endanger your teeth and gums. For example, women with diabetes face a higher risk of developing oral cancer. And anyone with TMJ disorders may unintentionally grind their teeth down.

Our dentists will help you care for your teeth as you focus on the rest of your wellbeing. We Have TMJ therapy, oral cancer screenings, and more treatment options to improve your dental health.

Healthy Teeth Promote a Healthy Body

Poor oral hygiene can exacerbate these medical conditions. Bacterial infections in the gum and teeth can directly enter the bloodstream and cause high blood pressure, bone loss, and inflammation elsewhere in the body. Learn more about the health risks of poor oral hygiene.

Regular dental appointments with the expert team at Loudoun Family Dental will keep your teeth clean and healthy. Our preventive services include oral cancer screenings. With our help, you can keep your oral and overall health in check.
