We are all finally ready to celebrate the coming holidays, and who knows, maybe even look forward to the New Year. Here, at Sammamish Family Dental, we are grateful for our extended family of patients and wish you all a safe and happy season.

We want to remind you that your oral healthcare is a primary step in your overall health and wellness plan. Your family dental team is here and ready to provide the best quality dental care available. 

We’ve gathered reasons to be thankful for quality dental health and listed them here for you.

1.) November is TMJ Awareness Month.

Jaw Pain

Tempro-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome (TMJ) is a common condition affecting a wide variety of people. TMJ symptoms include severe headaches, jaw pain of varying degrees, grinding teeth, and an intermittent ringing in the ears. The vast majority of TMJ sufferers are unaware that the root cause of these problems is something that a dentist can effectively treat. See our TMJ service page for more information.

We treat TMJ regularly, and as soon as you call us, you will be thankful that you did.

2.) November is Mouth Cancer Awareness Month

According to the Oral Health Foundation, dentists can quickly diagnose mouth cancer as soon as it is detected. Dentistrytoday.com supplies a quote from Dr. Catherine Rutland. “As dental professionals, we have the opportunity to lead conversations on mouth cancer and make sure that patients are aware of the risks, signs, and symptoms. If we can help people to make positive lifestyle choices, remain vigilant to any changes in their mouth, and seek professional help at the earliest stage, we can help to save lives.”

You can avoid severe diseases of the mouth, jaws, and gums with regular check-ups and a  balanced oral care regimen. We are grateful for that!
