3 Common Dental Problems

At Mint Dental Care, we’re prepared to look at and treat a host of different dental issues, from the routine to full mouth restorations. Some cases, however, are more common than others. Here are the top three common dental problems that patients are eager to treat.

Gum Disease

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, occurs when plaque and bacteria get trapped under the gums and causes them to become inflamed and infected. Symptoms include red, sore, and bleeding gums. Gum disease can be very painful, and if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss. While prevention entails consistent brushing, flossing, and regular dental exams, treatment includes laser gum treatment and root scaling, both of which we offer here at Mint Dental Care.

Cosmetic Issues

Chipped teeth, bite issues, and stained teeth can damage one’s confidence in their smile. There are many cosmetic treatments available to give patients the smiles of their dreams. We offer Invisalign®, dental veneers, and professional teeth whitening so that our patients have plenty of options when it comes to cosmetic treatments.

Missing Teeth

While replacing a missing tooth may seem like a cosmetic issue, there’s more to it than just having a complete smile. Missing teeth can make it harder to talk and chew, and can even make your jaw weaker. Depending on how many teeth you are missing, your dentist may recommend that you get a bridge or dentures. We offer both treatment options at Mint Dental Care for a beautiful and functional smile.

At Mint Dental Care, we want you to have your dream smile, whether that means you simply need a dental cleaning and exam or one of our many specialized services. We also firmly believe in providing affordable care to all of our patients, whether you have insurance or not. If you are dealing with a dental problem, don’t wait to get the care you need!
