Your Smile Health: What’s That Annoying Sound?

Your smile health is something that may provide you with some clues when things aren’t quite on track. If you’re noticing that you’re actually hearing sounds as symptoms of something that’s changed, our Grand Prairie, TX team reminds you that there’s no reason to become overly alarmed. Symptoms show up in all sorts of ways, whether it’s something you see or feel or, in this case, notice with your ears! Let’s cover some common sounds that may be coming from your mouth, what they might mean, and what you can do about them!

Are You Experiencing A Whistle?

We agree. It’s not really normal for your mouth to be whistling all on its own! So, unless you have been training yourself to mimic a piccolo, you might have a small space between two teeth through which air is passing and creating a little noise. High-pitched and cute as it may be, you might not be thrilled with this detail. So, consider coming in to talk with our team about dental bonding. Your smile health is just fine, of course, but you may absolutely fix this concern!

Do You Deal With Cracking And Popping?

When you hear cracking sounds or popping, this is probably your jaw. Remember that you have a joint on either side of your head. These joints, your TMJs (or your temporomandibular joints) connect your jaw to your cranium. When they work well, they glide without making sounds. When they could use some improvement, noises may show up. Talk with us. We offer TMJ treatment!

Are You Smacking When You Speak Or Eat?

If you can’t make it through a sentence without audible smacking noises, you might be dealing with dry mouth. When you’re short on saliva, some strange sounds can show up. Talk with us during a dental checkup to find out how we can help you improve the lubrication in your mouth, so this symptom goes away and your smile health is protected. (Of course, remember that you can always begin by drinking more water to ensure you’re not simply dealing with a lack of optimal hydration).
