Many people have a fear of the dentist which is founded in the past. Which is why at the East Bentleigh Dental Group, I decided to utilize the most appropriate technologies to create a comfortable, pain managed experience. Pain can occur in any number of places in your mouth: teeth, gums, roots, the palate, tongue and jaw. Cavities are a common culprit causing pain. Untreated cavities can impact nerves because of infections of the tooth and gums. Impacted, abscessed teeth and sore jaws from teeth grinding are other common causes of pain. Improper bite relationships and jaw disorders can also cause pain. Other sources of pain include sleep disorders, headaches and neck aches. We take a whole-of-mouth approach to pain relief and pain management. As an example, dental pain can be attributed to poor posture, flat feet, poor stance, gait and even particular sleeping positions.
