That's why you should come into Kirchner Dental in Jeffersonville, IN every six months for a general dentistry check. You'll also get a thorough exam at each visit, including an oral cancer exam. This helps us spot problems while they are small and more easily handled. Our exams can also help us prevent problems from cropping up in the future.

Athletic Mouthguards Protect Your Smile
When you are playing contact sports or doing something with a high chance of injury like bike riding or spelunking, you wear a helmet. That's because the padding and helmet material will protect your head if you fall. Athletic mouthguards do the same thing for your mouth. When worn, they help protect your teeth, tissues, and jaw from any bad accidents or injuries. Nothing protects 100 percent, of course, but it can save your smile from chips, cracks, cuts, and lost teeth.

Prevent Gum Disease
Cavities are caused by harmful bacteria living on your enamel. They secrete an acid that erodes this protective outer layer of your tooth. When these bacteria live on your gums, they can irritate the gum tissue. This is called gingivitis, the early form of gum disease. If left untreated, the bacteria can get into your gums and infect them. This is called periodontitis. This is a serious condition that can cause you to lose teeth. We can help treat gum disease with scaling and root planing. These treatments scrape away plaque and the bacteria living there, even below the gumline.

Dry Mouth Is a Health Problem
Your mouth is supposed to stay wet with saliva. When you have dry mouth, you're not getting enough saliva to help wash away food particles. It can even interfere with your ability to talk. There are several causes of dry mouth, including tobacco and alcohol use. It can also be a sign of gum disease. If you are suffering from chronic dry mouth, you should call our Jeffersonville, IN dentists, Drs. Michael Kirchner and Kimberly Sherry as soon as possible to get relief and a general dentistry check.
Ask Jeffersonville, IN Dentists, Drs. Michael Kirchner and Kimberly Sherry About Bad Breath
Halitosis, or bad breath, can happen for a number of reasons. Your diet could be a factor, as foods like garlic can turn your breath foul even hours after you've eaten them. Dry mouth is another, as you don't have enough saliva to help wash away food particles. The biggest concern with halitosis is gingivitis. This is the early stage of gum disease. If not treated, it could eventually cause your teeth to loosen or even fall out. That's not something a piece of minty sugarless gum can help.
