How can we help you?
At our office, we believe that understanding and education can make a huge difference in the lives of our patients. Patients who learn about their dental health and take steps to be proactive have better outcomes. We will take every opportunity to discuss your dental health with you, and we will always provide information so that you can make the health decisions that are right for you.
If you ever have a question about the care you receive at our office or a dental treatment or procedure, don't hesitate to ask. You can always give us a call or contact us using our convenient online form. We've compiled a selection of the questions we are most commonly asked. Feel free to take a look. If your question isn't answered here or you need more information, let us know so we can help.
Bad breath can come from a number of places. The bad breath we concern ourselves within dentistry is not the kind that comes from eating or drinking. Usually, if you have garlic breath, onion breath, or coffee breath, simply brushing your teeth and using an oral rinse makes it go away.
The bad breath we are concerned about comes from bacteria. When bacteria live inside your mouth, reproducing and causing an infection, they give off a rotten odor. You have probably noticed this when talking to certain people that their breath is awful and it seems like they don’t even know it. The truth is that many people cannot smell their own breath.
When Bad Breath Becomes A Problem
If you do not brush or floss regularly, if your gums hurt or bleed when you do brush or floss, or if your dental floss smells stinky after you use it, you probably have bad breath and don’t even know it.
Dr. Jeffrey Robertson and his dental hygiene team can help you get back on track quickly. After a specialized cleaning, possible oral medication, and improving your home care routine, you do not have to walk around with bad breath any longer. With our help, we can reduce the bacteria in your mouth and protect you from a recurrence.
Call our office today to schedule your exam and to get to the bottom of your bad breath problems.
We never want our patients to experience pain. That is why we recommend routine exams and professional dental cleanings. When we have the opportunity to see you on a regular basis, it allows us to stop most dental conditions before they cause discomfort.
If you experience gum or tooth pain, you should call us right away. We will ask you a series of questions to determine how to best handle your dental emergency. We will ask questions about when the pain started, what you were doing if it is worse when exposed to hot or cold, if you lost a dental restoration, as well as a series of questions to help us prepare for your appointment.
Scheduling Your Appointment
Chances are if you are in pain during business hours, we will try to see you on the same day. If we talk to you after hours, we will get you in as soon as we can and suggest ways to help you manage your pain until we can arrange for an emergency exam.
Tooth pain is an indication that something is wrong. Do not postpone your call because tooth pain rarely resolves on its own. We will diagnose and treat the cause of your pain, restoring your dental health. Call Irvine Dental and be seen by Dr. Jeffrey C. Robertson, DDS for your tooth pain.
