Asheville Dental enjoyed an exciting 2017. We launched a new website and started our A/D Blog. To finish out the year, we’re bringing you a recap of some of our most popular health related topics.
Healthy Gums, Healthy Hearts
Many doctors speculate that healthy gums correlate to a healthy heart. Though the medical jury may be debating the connection, there’s no denying that people who live a healthy lifestyle tend to be people who pay more attention to diet, exercise, and oral care. Want to learn more? Read our blog from last February.
Have you ever had a persistent headache that you can’t explain? Sometimes your jaw hurts, or even weirder, your ear hurts? You don’t have migraines or suffer from allergies. You went to the eye doctor, ear doctor, and even had a full work up by your GP. No one can explain the daily pain that ibuprofen hardly touches. If this sounds like you, or someone you know, it may be time to visit the dentist. Your pain could be the result of grinding your teeth.
Allergies, Snoring, and Sleep Apnea
Nasal congestion is one of the most common symptoms caused by allergens. Sufferers of clogged breathing passageways may experience snoring, or in more severe situations, sleep apnea. How can the dentist help? Learn here.
Bad Breath, Causes and Fixes
It’s estimated that more than 60% of Americans suffer from bad breath (also known as halitosis). Maybe you had a few onions on your salad at lunch or garlic bread with your pasta at supper. But bad breath isn’t necessarily the result of pungent foods. Often it’s a sign that it’s time to up your dental hygiene game. Sometimes it’s a red flag of an underlying health problem. How do you know? Read our blog from May, 2017.
We hope you’ve enjoyed and learned something this year. We look forward to sharing new information with you in 2018. From all of us at Asheville Dental, thank you for making us your dental practice of choice. Seasons Greetings and Happy New Year!
