General Family Dentistry is more than a simple teeth cleaning, although that is a very important part. The health of your teeth and gums have a profound effect on the health of your entire body. Your mouth is the gateway to your body, and it is imperative to keep it in top condition through daily dental hygiene and Bi-annual visits to a trusted dental professional, such as Dr. Rebecca Hayden, one of the top dentists in Cincinnati.

When plaque or tarter accumulates on the teeth, it can result in gum disease and tooth loss if left untreated. Unfortunately, this can take place below the gum line and is often painless and undetected by the patient. At Hayden Family Dental our staff takes the proper time to evaluate the oral health of our patients and offer periodontal treatment to stop gum disease from spreading. Often signs of this disease are bad breath, loose teeth or bleeding gums.
TMJ is a disorder that usually starts with an irregular bite which leads to nighttime teeth grinding, resulting in neck and shoulder pain, migraine headaches, and other persistent, painful conditions. A customized, individual approach to your overall health will ensure that we uncover all your needs, even if they do not seem related to your teeth at first glance. As part of our General Dentistry services, Dr. Rebecca Hayden, DMD, can treat TMJ with customized mouthpieces you wear while sleeping, which stops teeth grinding and provides relief from TMJ.
Many people suffer from Sleep Apnea, the interruption of breathing while asleep. This most often occurs when the soft tissue in the back of the throat becomes relaxed, blocking the air passageways when you sleep. This results in snoring and the intermittent, complete interruption of breathing, causing a sudden gasp for air. When this happens repeatedly throughout the night, your body is robbed of quality, restful sleep resulting in drowsiness the next day. Over the long term, Sleep Apnea can result in high blood pressure, diabetes, weight gain and heart disease. Dr. Rebecca Hayden can fit you with a custom mouthpiece that can help keep airways clear during the night, helping you achieve restful, peaceful sleep.
Oral Cancer Screening
Dr. Rebecca Hayden completes a free oral cancer screening, part of our General Dentistry services, at all new patient visits and during your hygiene appointments. Dr. Hayden takes early detection of oral cancer very seriously as over 30,000 cases are diagnosed every year and early detection is the key to remission and recovery.
