Dental Health Concerns

Oral health problems and concerns can range in severity. However, you can often avoid issues with routine visits to your local dental office. Bi-annual dental checkups help Dr. Sarkarzadeh diagnose and treat developing oral health concerns. We want to address them before they compromise the health of your teeth and gums.

Some dental problems we can address and fix for you include:

Americans are keeping their teeth longer than ever before. The average number of teeth we retain as we age is beginning to increase. With this in mind, be aware of potential dental concerns that may arise or may already be affecting you.

Tooth Cavities & Dry Mouth

A common cause of cavities as we get older is dry mouth. Dry mouth is usually a side-effect of taking medications to treat a number of conditions and diseases. Let our dentist know about any medications you are taking.

We can make suggestions to relieve dry mouth symptoms, and in turn prevent future cavities. Our dentist may recommend an ADA-approved oral moisturizer or other methods to increase the flow of saliva.

Gum Disease

According to the CDC, 64% of Americans over the age of 65 have moderate to severe periodontal disease. Gum disease is often a painless condition until its advanced stages. The bacteria in plaque causes it, which irritate the gums and makes them swollen, red, and more likely to bleed. Eventually, the gum pulls away from the tooth and create pockets that become infected.

If this condition continues without treatment, it will destroy the gums, bone, and ligaments supporting the teeth. This can lead to gum recession, oral cancer, and tooth loss. Again, regular dental visits can help treat or prevent gum disease entirely.

Oral Cancer

Doctors diagnose about 35,000 cases of oral cancer each year according to the American Cancer Society. Symptoms include open sores, white or reddish patches, and changes in the lips, tongue, and lining of the mouth. Your regular dental exam should include a check for cancer because early detection can save lives!

During preventive care visits, we can spot the early signs of tooth decay and gum disease. Dr. Sarkarzadeh can provide treatment before you get significant damage.

Emergency Dental Care

While many dental health concerns progress slowly, some patients may experience a dental emergency. Our Rockville dental office offers emergency dental services for new and returning patients. Facial swelling, sharp oral pain, or a knocked-out tooth are all emergencies that our dentist can address as soon as possible.

Contact our office at (301) 276-4694 in a dental emergency. Our dental care team will make every effort to see you as soon as possible. 

Missing teeth are a complex dental health concern that can compromise the health of your gums, teeth, and jaw bone. Replacing missing teeth can help stabilize your bite, and protect your mouth from future damage. Dr. Sarkarzadeh and Dr. Farzin work together to provide full-service dental implant treatment plans to replace missing teeth. Dental implants provide structural stability and promote long-term oral health.
