Looking For a New Dentist?

It can be frustrating to have a dentist that is just going through the motions of cleaning your teeth. At Bright Side Dental, you can be sure that your dentist cares about your overall health, not just the health of your teeth. At our Royal Oak Office we will examine your entire mouth during your regular checkup. After you have your teeth cleaned by your hygienist, your dentist will do a thorough check of your entire mouth, including your teeth, gums, inside of your cheeks, roof of your mouth, tongue, and under your tongue. Your regular checkup even includes an oral cancer screening. This is a regular service that we offer just to make sure that nothing is going unnoticed.

Your Royal Oak dentist cares about your overall health and that’s why he or she will want to know of any updates in your general health and any updates in medication you take. Certain prescription medications can affect your oral health, as can certain medical conditions, such as pregnancy, diabetes, or heart disease. Your dentist will educate you on how your medical conditions may affect your oral health and how that may impact the way you need to care for your smile.

Your dentist cares about your entire mouth, not just your teeth so be sure to tell him or her about any concerns you have in your mouth. Do you have a lump, bump, or sore that just doesn’t seem to want to heal? Your dentist can help you with that. Some sores are very common and heal on their own within a matter of days or weeks. If you’ve been dealing with something that keeps lingering for much longer, be sure to tell your dentist so he or she can take a look and decide what the sore is and what can be done to help heal it sooner.

If you experience a very dry mouth then this is also something that you should bring up to your dentist. Some people suffer from chronic dry mouth and no matter how much they drink, they can’t quench the dryness in their mouth. This chronic dry mouth can be caused by prescription medications and your dentist can help. There are prescription mouthwashes that can offer relief to chronic dry mouth sufferers.

If you’re due for your cleaning and checkup, or are experiencing any other dental issue or concern, please call Bright Side Dental in Royal Oak Today at (248) 629-1830 . Your dentist wants to help you, so be sure to let the staff know of any changes or updates to your health or the condition in your mouth. Communication is key to any great relationship! Speak up and communicate any questions or concerns.
