Common Problems

Common Dental Problems

When you experience oral discomfort, it can be easy to assume that something is very wrong, because problems in the mouth are conspicuous and hard to work around. They affect both eating and talking quite a bit, not to mention various aspects of your social interactions both personally and professionally. Many patients bring common issues to their Green Bay dentist. At Oral Health Associates, our dentists work with patients to help them understand common issues and work around them. When you make an appointment with doctors Mark Glime, Brain Koch, Gregory Gardner, or Adam Koch, you will get the advice you need.

Problems You Can Prevent

Many of the issues patients bring to us are preventable with the right home strategy and regular dental cleanings at our office. Those issues include:

  • Plaque buildup
  • Tooth sensitivity (certain causes)
  • Tooth decay
  • Gingivitis

Some patients will have an easier time with prevention than others, due to genetic and lifestyle factors, but our dentists can help you keep your smile in the best possible condition, even if you find oral hygiene challenging.

Other Common Problems

Some common issues just can’t be prevented, including some of the above for those with rare genetic predispositions to them. For most other people, these are the problems that can crop up whether or not you are careful about prevention. Your Green Bay family dentist can help you treat these problems.

  • Alignment issues, including malocclusion
  • Canker sores
  • Bad breath not associated with gingivitis and tooth decay
  • Temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ pain)

Treating these issues promptly will minimize their impact on your health and comfort. Ignoring them may have profound effects on not only your oral health but your overall health as well.
