While many dental problems are identified during a visit to the dentist, some problems aren’t always easily diagnosed. Some people take regular care of their teeth, but still get numerous cavities. Others have weakened enamel at an earlier age than expected.
These problems and many others could be the result of uncommon biological situations that aren’t easily diagnosed in a traditional visit.
This is where Dental Problem Analysis by Dr. Shore is important. This program involves specialized examination and testing to investigate the probable cause of your problem. One the issue is identified, a custom plan can be created to help reduce or eliminate the problem.
Beyond the close examination, this process may also involve the following tests:
Bacteria Testing: Bacteria is common in the mouth and body, but only certain kinds and in certain amounts. If the bacteria situation in your mouth becomes uncommon, it can lead to periodontal disease, persistent bad breath, and other oral hygiene concerns.
pH Testing: Sometimes, a pH imbalance in the mouth can cause wearing of tooth enamel, bad breath, sores, and other issues. This testing will help to diagnose if an imbalance is present.
