Halitosis - Bad Breath
Halitosis is very common, and nearly 50% of the general population have halitosis. The treatment for halitosis will depend on the etiology (the underlying condition), and management may differ from patient to patient based on our skilled clinician’s knowledge. MITT Clinic boasts special equipment to diagnose this problem and provide discreet solutions.
Dry Mouth - Xerostomia
Reduced salivary flow can cause alterations of food tasting, problem upon chewing, swallowing, and speaking; it can also increase the chance of developing dental decay, demineralization of teeth, tooth sensitivity, and/or oral infections. In Our clinic we will try to identify the etiology behind dry mouth and relief discomfort to prevent complications.
Temporomandibular Joint Conditions
Our patients with TMJ discomfort will receive a comprehensive evaluation to diagnose their problem and arrive at a healthy solution. We will explore options together to help alleviate your discomfort.
Many patients suffer from bruxism or clenching as a result from stress and anxiety. These conditions may cause facial muscle pain, dull headaches, spasms, neck pain, insomnia, jaw aches, restless sleep and other disturbances, including excessive tooth wear and/or the development of temporomandibular joint disorders – or TMDs. In our clinic we offer an option of a custom night guard - a very durable and reliable solution for your discomfort.
Oral Cancer and Oral Pathology
Oral cancer is considered to be a relatively common cancer. The disease is severe and reaches 50% mortality within 5 years. Oral cancer can damage all the mucous membranes of the oral cavity: lips, cheeks, mouth floor, tongue, gums, palate and facial bones. In the early stages, the disease will appear painless in the form of a wound with white, red or combined shade. That stresses the importance of early testing and diagnosis. In our clinic, during every routine examination, we check the oral cavity and x-rays for early detection of such lesions. If a suspected lesion is detected, we will take a sample from the lesion (biopsy) that will be sent for identification in a pathology lab. After receiving the answer, we can advise and refer you for treatment in the place that works best for you.
