Oral diseases include problems with the tongue, jaw and cheeks in addition to the teeth. Typical difficulties include oral cancer, cysts and various forms of infection. Your regular dental visit includes an examination for such pathological problems by your Sacramento dental professionals.
Infections by bacteria — which may cause rashes, hairy tongue and halitosis — are treated with antibiotics and prescription strength mouthwashes. Other problems can include syndromes such as xerostomia, the absence of saliva, or “dry mouth.” Left untreated, xerostomia can lead to serious periodontal disorders, since saliva is essential to maintaining the enamel of your teeth. The offices of the Sacramento Dentistry Group deal with all such diseases discreetly and efficiently.
