Common dental problems to look out for

Posted on 2/7/2022 by Advanced Dental Specialty Group
Common dental problems to look out for Oral health problems cause significant problems in a person's overall well-being. Poor oral hygiene causes a wide range of problems such as cavities and sensitivity. Healthy teeth ensure a pleasing smile, fresh breath and help in boosting self-confidence in individuals.

[[H2:What are the common dental conditions]]]
Dental caries, also known as dental decay and cavities, is the most common dental disease. According to research, almost everyone has experienced the condition at least once in their lifetime. The condition results when bacteria accumulate in the mouth, forming a film referred to as plaque. Plaque consists of harmful bacteria and acids that erode the enamel and surface of the tooth. After eating away the hard enamel, the bacteria then eat away the soft dentin of the tooth. The dentist may recommend fillings, crowns, or root canals to repair the damaged teeth. Sometimes, an extraction may be recommended.

A weak gum line results in swelling, soreness, and bleeding, especially when brushing. Gingival diseases are also a common occurrence caused by bacterial build-up and plaque that weaken the gum line. It is a mild form of gingival or periodontal disease and is treated through regular cleaning and checkup at the dentists. It is advised to clean and floss at least twice a day to prevent its occurrence.

Halitosis or bad breath is a frequent condition treated by dentists in many patients. Bad breath is caused by poor oral hygiene, medication, mouth dryness, and acid reflux. Spiced foods are also known to cause bad breath. After brushing, flossing, and rinsing with a mouth wash, the condition should go away. However, if the condition persists, a dentist should examine and prescribe a well-suited treatment.

Teeth sensitivity to hot or cold foods indicates that the tooth's enamel is worn out, and the dentin, the soft tissues of the teeth, have been exposed. This sensitivity causes immense pain caused by tooth decay, broken or cracked teeth, bacterial root infections, receding gums, and worn-down crowns or dental fillings. Dentists help manage the situation by recommending fluoride treatments, root canal, gum grafting, and crown replacement. However, the treatment of these diseases depends on the severity of the condition.
