Symptoms We Treat

BAD BREATH

An unpleasant smell in a person’s breath with possible loss of self-confidence socially, despite attempts at advertised solutions. Did you know unhealthy lifestyle habits and eating certain types of food might worsen bad breath?

DRY MOUTH

A decreased production of saliva. This results in difficulty in speaking, eating, and swallowing, which in some situations may lead to malnutrition.

Tooth Sensitivity

Increased responsiveness of teeth to chemical (sour/ sweet), mechanical (pressure/ bite) or   thermal changes (hot/ cold). Do not ignore these symptoms as teeth problems do not heal   by themselves; a professional visit to verify the causes and multiple treatment visits may be  warranted.

Persistent Mouth Ulcers

A recurring loss or tearing of the protective inside layer of the mouth “skin” (mucosa), often  resulting in painful eating and talking and suffering with the possible consequent loss of appetite,  weight and vitality in living.

BLEEDING GUMS

Bleeding when brushing, eating or flossing is one of the signs and symptoms of gum disease, the   severity of which should be verified by a dentist for treatment. With gum disease bacteria being  linked to heart disease and many other diseases, it is wise to start your health check with your  dentist who is focused on total health.

Loose Teeth

This is a sign of active gum disease, which is possibly worsened by the way your teeth bite  together. More urgent attention is needed in such instances.

Progressive Dental and Oral Disease

Ongoing dental decay and gum disease despite regular visits to the dentist could be indicative of  a more systemic condition (a generalised internal body reaction rather than just a local reaction).   This will require further investigation.

Metallic Taste

A common side effect of medication, which in most cases can be sorted out by your physician.   However, a thorough dental assessment is advised to check if there are breakdown materials in   your mouth, dehydration and change in mouth bacteria contributing to this condition.

Symptoms of Mercury Poisoning

These include premature memory loss, food intolerances, chemical sensitivity, insomnia, fatigue,  muscle twitching and pain, headache, neck, jaw ache, digestion issues including indigestion,   abdominal bloating and emotional changes (brain fog, mood swings, anxiety attacks, irritability),   and also vague symptoms that medical diagnosis is unable to label conclusively.
