Dental Concerns in Lancaster and Palmdale, CA
Common dental concerns include tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, missing teeth, discoloration, bad breath, crooked teeth, jaw pain, headaches and TMJ, bruxism, and wear and tear on teeth over time. We can fix these problems and more to help you get your oral health back on track.
Bad Breath: Do you have constant bad breath that won’t go away?
Bad breath, also called halitosis, is something everyone experiences. However, if it’s prominent and chronic, there may be underlying issues that your dentist needs to treat. We can help you get to the root cause of your bad breath so we can treat it effectively. To learn more about treatments for halitosis, see Bad breath.
Bleeding Gums: Do your gums bleed after every brushing?
Bleeding gums can be a sign of dental trauma, but they can also be an indication of gum disease. Without treatment, gum disease is a common cause of tooth loss, gum recession, and bone deterioration. If you’re noticing that your gums are bleeding frequently when you brush or floss your teeth, call our Palmdale or Lancaster dentist office right away.
Gum disease is most effectively treated when it’s caught as early as possible. Dr. Naguib offers comprehensive periodontal screenings and periodontal therapy for the treatment of gum disease. To learn more about treatments for bleeding gums, visit Bleeding gums.
Crooked Teeth: Is your malocclusion causing other issues?
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. Patients with crooked teeth are more likely to develop tooth decay, worn teeth, or even complications with the jaw and bite. We offer Invisalign and other orthodontics options to straighten your smile. To learn more about crooked teeth issues and treatment, visit Crooked teeth.
Discolored Teeth: Do your yellow teeth prevent you from smiling your best smile?
We all want to have a glowing white smile. Age, lifestyle habits, and other factors can discolor our teeth. Teeth can naturally yellow from enamel erosion, trauma, or from certain medications. We offer traditional teeth whitening methods both in the office and to take home to make your smile multiple shades brighter.
We also offer porcelain veneers and more for patients whose dental discoloration doesn’t respond to typical teeth whitening treatments. To learn more about tooth discoloration, visit Discolored teeth.
Fear of the Dentist: Does dental anxiety prevent you from visiting 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. To learn more about dental anxiety, visit Fear of the dentist.
Headaches: Do frequent headaches keep you up at night?
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. For many patients, chronic headaches are associated with bruxism, or teeth grinding. Schedule an appointment so we can determine and help you treat the root cause of your morning headaches. To learn more about oral health-related headaches, visit Headaches.
Missing Teeth: Do lost teeth affect your confidence and eating habits?
Even one missing tooth can have a detrimental effect on your self-confidence and oral health. Missing teeth can jeopardize the health and function of the teeth and jaw. We offer many tooth replacement options, so we can find the right one for your smile. Dr. Naguib also offers full mouth reconstruction services to replace missing teeth and restore oral health. To learn about your missing teeth treatment options, visit Missing teeth.
Teeth Grinding: Does bruxism affect your daily life?
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.
Dr. Naguib offers oral sleep appliances to treat bruxism, teeth grinding, and teeth clenching issues. We can also repair worn-down teeth after we help you get the habit under control. To learn more about teeth grinding symptoms and treatments, visit Teeth grinding.
Tooth Cavities: Do you have unbearable tooth pain or constant toothaches?
Tooth decay is the most common dental health concern that affects patients of all ages. It causes small holes in your dental enamel called cavities. They’re often prevalent in small children and people who eat a sugary diet. Your dentist needs to fill these cavities sooner rather than later to minimize the spread of the infection. Regular dental health exams can allow for conservative dental procedures to fill cavities. To learn more about cavities, visit Tooth cavities.
Common Dental FAQs
Read the answers to common questions that patients have about their dental concerns to learn more. We treat every patient who comes to our Palmdale and Lancaster dental offices with respect and want them to be knowledgeable about their dental care. We will help our patients feel at home while we examine their teeth, gums, and jaw.
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.
