More Than Just a Pretty Smile

Everyone wants to have healthy teeth, but having a healthy mouth means that the soft tissues in your mouth, such as your gums, tongue, cheeks and lips, have to be healthy as well. Increased sun exposure, poor oral hygiene, smoking, frequent alcohol consumption and certain medications can affect soft tissue health and increase your risk of developing oral infections, inflammatory conditions and in some cases, even cancer of the mouth. These changes are usually painless and unfortunately are often only detected once they are quite severe.

If you, or someone you know, experiences: persistent redness or soreness of the skin inside your mouth; crusting of the lips; unexplained lumps or bumps in your mouth or white patches which cannot be rubbed off then you might benefit from having these examined.

Dentists are physicians of the mouth and at Fernvale Dental we believe that prevention and early detection are the keys to avoiding potential oral health problems.
