Is it an ordinary toothache, or something more serious?
Article 01 image, Dentist Sterling Heights
Your dental partners are also your partners in health. We’re happy to see more family physicians are acknowledging that connection between the mouth and the rest of the body. You may be familiar with the connection between untreated gum disease and the vascular inflammation linked to heart disease and stroke. You may not be as familiar with the jaw and mouth related symptoms of these conditions. As a society, we have the tendency to focus on “commonly-cited” symptoms of a heart attacks or strokes, such as pain on the left side of the body. But women may experience symptoms that you don’t read about as commonly online. These include:
  • Jaw pain or discomfort
  • Particularly pronounced pain in the lower jaw
  • Discomfort seemingly originating from the jaw worsens when twisting from side-to-side
  • Mouth pain that gets worse with deep breath, persists at rest or, conversely, during physical activity
Usually, if tooth or jaw pain is the only worrisome condition, TMJ dysfunction or other dental problems are to blame. If accompanied by other types of symptoms, underlying medical conditions such as cancers, sinus infections, and salivary stones may be to blame. Don’t doubt. Call your Laser Dental Associates (586) 838-2017!

Dental specialists are the ideal health partners to detect a type of head and neck cancer whose incidence has exploded in the past 15 years: HPV. Yes, it’s the same high-risk HPV that causes cervical cancer. The HPV virus is seemingly everywhere, so many are exposed. This type of cancer is often found on the tongue and oropharynx, the middle part of your throat behind the mouth. It includes the back third of your tongue, the sides and back walls of your throat, and tonsils. This type of cancer is distinguished from “traditional” oral cancers, partly, due to:
  • It’s affecting younger men
  • It’s affecting those who are not smokers or longtime, habitual drinkers
  • The high incidence among people with persistent HPV, who unlike most have a hard time clearing the virus
The growing rates of these cancers underscore the importance of dental visits, at least every six months. As dentists, we’re at the front lines of not only your teeth and gum health, but also your overall wellness. Our professionals will look for abnormalities, such as ulcers or growths on the sides and base of the tongue or tonsils. If you haven’t scheduled your next checkup, call us (586) 838-2017!

Featured Procedure - Implants
Implants are usually associated with plastic surgery, plastic surgeons and breast augmentation. However, implants are also used by dentists.

So, what are dental implants? They are devices placed within the bone to replace missing teeth, to replace at a tooth that will retain a bridge and they are also used to help stabilize dentures that are built over the implants.
