Dental Concerns in Lancaster and Palmdale, CA

Bad Breath

Bad breath, also called halitosis, is something everyone experiences. However, if it’s prominent and chronic, there may be underlying issues that need to be treated. We can help you get to the root cause of your bad breath so we can treat it effectively.

Bleeding Gums

Bleeding gums can be a sign of dental trauma, but they can also be an indication of gum disease. If you’re noticing that your gums are bleeding frequently when you brush or floss your teeth, call our office. Gum disease is most effectively treated when it’s caught as early as possible.

Crooked Teeth

Not only are crooked teeth a cosmetic issue, but they can impact your overall oral health as well. Crooked teeth are harder to clean and may lead to bite problems or unevenly worn teeth. We offer Invisalign and other orthodontics options to straighten your smile.

Discolored Teeth

We all want to have a glowing white smile. Age, lifestyle habits, and other factors can discolor our teeth. We offer traditional teeth whitening methods both in the office and to take home to make your smile multiple shades brighter. Porcelain veneers and more are offered for patients whose dental discoloration doesn’t respond to typical treatments.

Fear of the Dentist

Whether certain sounds or sights in the office trigger anxiety or just coming into the office altogether does, we welcome you. With sedation dentistry and other methods, we can help you feel comfortable with all of your dentist office experiences. Contact us so that we can find the right solution to ease your dental fear.

Headaches

If you have chronic headaches and migraines, you may have a TMJ disorder. TMJ headaches frequently occur in the morning and correspond with pain in the jaw and the rest of your face. Schedule an appointment so we can determine and treat the root cause.

Missing Teeth

Even one missing tooth can have a detrimental effect on your self-confidence and oral health. We offer multiple tooth replacement options so we can find the right one for your smile.

Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding and clenching typically happen when you sleep at night. These are also symptoms of a TMJ disorder. Teeth grinding can cause pain, impact the function of your jaw joint, and aggressively wear down your teeth.

Tooth Cavities

Tooth decay causes small holes in your dental enamel called cavities. They’re often prevalent in small children and people who have a sugary diet. These cavities need to be treated sooner rather than later to minimize the spread of the infection.

Common Dental FAQs

Read the answers to common questions patients have about their dental concerns to learn more:

What is a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies are oral health problems that require immediate professional care. If you have severe tooth pain, a chipped or cracked tooth, a lost permanent tooth, or a broken or lost dental restoration, call our Palmdale or Lancaster office for emergency treatment.

How does sedation help dental anxiety?

Dental sedation treatments like IV and oral conscious sedation can be used during more routine visits for patients with dental anxiety or a fear of the dentist. Sedation dentistry is a treatment method that calms and relaxes patients. This makes it easier for them to receive dental care painlessly and effectively.

Are crooked teeth a risk factor for teeth grinding?

Yes, if you have crooked or misaligned teeth, you may be more prone to developing bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding. When the teeth are not in a comfortable or aligned position, this can put stress on the temporomandibular joints. As a result, patients may grind their teeth and exhibit other painful TMJ symptoms.
