The health of your jaw is a vital part of good oral health. Your jawbone can suffer from diseases which can compromise your oral health and overall wellbeing. Only a dentist can properly diagnose if your jawbone is unhealthy.
If you have frequent headaches in the morning or wake up to a sore jaw, then your jaw might be unhealthy. Do not disregard symptoms in the jaw area. Call your Smiles Nambour dentist right away.

Treatment depends on the disease and the severity of the condition.

If you are suffering from any symptoms of the above diseases, contact your Smiles Nambour dentist right away. Only your dentist can properly assess the disease and create a treatment plan for you.
