Do you suffer from indigestion that never seems to go away?
You might find yourself keeping a daily supply of antacids, or even attempting to adjust your diet to cut-back on the heartburn that you live with every day. But while you remain focused on what you’re eating and how your digestive system feels – are you taking a look at your oral hygiene?
Our dentists in Anaheim recommend you do.
If you have indigestion or a stomach ache that’s recurring, there is a chance that it’s your teeth to blame – and not your diet, or your digestive system. So ask yourself: do you have a hard time chewing?
When patients begin to have a hard time chewing their food properly, they often begin to swallow food that’s bigger than it should be. That can be pretty tough on your stomach, and if it’s happening to you it’s important to pinpoint why it’s happening.
Whether you have a tooth-ache, a cracked molar, or a more serious problem like a dental abscess that needs root canal treatment – getting to the bottom of the problem is important. If you’re a denture wearer – it could also mean that your dentures are no longer fitting properly, and could need an adjustment.
What you should do: If you suffer from frequent indigestion and have been noticing pain, soreness, and similar symptoms from your teeth – a visit to your family dentist could be exactly what you need.
Let our dentists in Garden Grove assess the situation – not only can we help remedy your indigestion, but we can also provide relief from the dental problems you’ve long-since “gotten used to” that could have created the problem in the first place.
