Medicine and Oral Pathology
Oral cancer is the term used to describe a group of malignant tumours located in the oral cavity and oropharynx. The high morbidity and mortality rate of this pathology motivate the interest of medical and dental doctors to widen their knowledge regarding the causes, signs and symptoms of the disease.
The Dental Team of Clínica São Dente know how important early diagnosis, prevention, and control are, especially in high-risk groups such as heavy smokers and alcohol drinkers.
Clínica São Dente provides dental services to the developmentally disabled, elderly and infirm. Our dentists are trained to understand and address the particular needs of people with disabilities.
Bad breath, also called halitosis, can result from poor dental health habits and may be a sign of other health problems. The type of food you eat and other unhealthy lifestyle habits can aggravate bad breath.
In most cases, your dentist can treat the cause of bad breath. But if your dentist finds that your mouth is healthy and the odour is not of oral origin, you may be referred to your GP or to a specialist.
Pregnancy and Dentistry
Pregnancy and dental work questions are common for expecting moms. Preventive dental cleanings and annual exams during pregnancy are not only safe but also recommended. The rise in hormone levels during pregnancy causes the gums to swell and bleed.
Preventive dental work during pregnancy is essential to avoid oral infections such as gum disease, which has been linked to preterm birth.
