Bleeding Gums

Bleeding gums are a common dental concern. A variety of issues can cause gums to bleed, including gum disease and hormonal changes such as pregnancy. In most cases if you improve your oral care routine, your gums will heal naturally and stop bleeding. However, contact our office if this doesn’t work because there may be an underlying issue.

Dr. Dham provides treatments and procedures that can get your gums back to normal. To learn more about bleeding gums, visit Bleeding gums.

Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth are a common dental concern that may affect more than just the appearance of your smile. Fortunately, our dentists can quickly realign crooked teeth using Invisalign or other orthodontic treatments. Straightening your teeth will improve the appearance of your mouth and the function of your bite. To learn more about how we can straighten your crooked teeth, visit Crooked teeth.

Fear of the Dentist

Dental anxiety, or fear of the dentist is extremely common. In our dental office, we understand that dental visits can be stressful. Our goal is to make our office as comfortable as possible for each of our patients. If you suffer from dental anxiety, please know that you are not alone.

Communicate with our team before your appointment so we can prepare for your visit. We have a variety of methods to make your appointments less stressful. We can even provide dental sedation upon request. To learn more about dental anxiety, visit Fear of the dentist.

Missing Teeth

Missing teeth can lead to a variety of dental concerns. Having unaddressed missing teeth can make it difficult to chew and speak. When a tooth is missing, it lets nearby teeth shift towards the empty space and cause alignment issues. Lost teeth also cause bite problems, jawbone deterioration, and an increased risk of gum disease and decay.

We offer many tooth replacement options in our Plantation, FL, dental office. The sooner you correct a missing tooth, the less likely you are to suffer from your teeth shifting and further damage. To learn more about replacing your missing teeth, visit Missing teeth.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea may effect your day to day life, as if effects how well you sleep. If you find that you snore loudly throughout the night, or wake up frequently gasping for air, you may suffer from sleep apnea. Untreated sleep apnea can shorten your lifespan by up to ten years. To learn more about sleep apnea and treatment options, visit Sleep apnea.

Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is a condition where patients grind their teeth at night or in times of stress. The most common sign that you are grinding your teeth, is waking up with a headache and experiencing jaw pain. Many patients grind their teeth and are unaware of it. To learn more about bruxism, visit Teeth grinding.

Tooth Cavities

Tooth decay is one of the leading dental concerns we see and fix. Tooth decay causes cavities to form and become a serious threat to your oral health. We offer a variety of treatments to correct cavities, the most common being dental fillings. To learn more about dental cavities, visit Tooth cavities.
