The Most Common Dental Problems
Bottom of Form
Although dental problems can be painful, most of them are easily preventable. Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, eating properly, and regular dental check-ups are essential steps in preventing dental problems.
It is important to be aware of the causes and common problems that can affect your teeth. Here are some common dental issues.
1. Bad breath
Bad breath, also known as halitosis or a bad breath syndrome, can make it embarrassing. Dental studies show that about 85 percent of people suffering from persistent bad breath have a dental condition.
If you have bad breath, use mouthwash to mask it. It will not fix the problem. Consult your dentist if you have persistent bad breath.
2. Tooth decay
Tooth decay is also known as cavities. It occurs when plaque, the sticky substance found on your teeth, mixes with sugars and/or starches in the food you eat. This combination produces acids that attack tooth enamel.
Cavities can happen at any age. Cavities can form as the enamel of your teeth erodes. Cavities can also be caused by dry mouth, whether from medications or age.
It is important to brush your teeth twice daily, floss daily, and go to your dental check-ups regularly to prevent tooth decay.
You can prevent tooth decay by eating healthy food and avoiding sugary snacks and drinks. You can have your dentist recommend additional treatments to reduce your risk.
3. Gum (Periodontal) Disease
Gum disease is also known as periodontal diseases. It involves infection of the gums around the teeth. This is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. Studies have shown that periodontal disease may also be linked to heart disease.
Gum disease is a serious problem that can affect anyone, but most people get it after they turn 30. One of the biggest risk factors is smoking. Your risk is also increased by dry mouth and diabetes. Your risk factors include dry mouth, diabetes, dry mouth, and red, swollen or tender gums.
If you notice any signs of gum disease, you should visit your dentist immediately to get treatment. This will help prevent future complications such as tooth loss.
Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease. Periodontitis is the second. Gum disease prevention starts with regular dental check-ups. This includes brushing twice daily and flossing every day.
4. Oral Cancer
Oral cancer is a serious and deadly disease that affects millions of people. Oral cancer is a serious and deadly disease that can be curable, according to the Oral Cancer Foundation. It affects millions of people in the United States. It is more common in those over 40. 5
Tobacco and alcohol consumption, which includes chewing tobacco, are the most dangerous. The risk of contracting HPV, a sexually transmitted virus, is also increased by tobacco and alcohol use. 6
Sores, lumps or rough areas around the mouth are all signs of throat or mouth cancer. A change in the shape of your jaw or teeth, as well as difficulty chewing or moving your tongue and jaw may be signs of mouth or throat cancer.
Regular visits to the dentist can help detect oral cancer early. Ask your dentist if an oral cancer examination is included in their regular checkup.
Consult your dentist if you have any symptoms of oral cancer, such as difficulty chewing, swallowing or moving your jaw or tongue.
5. Mouth Sores
There are many types of mouth sores. They can be annoying and pesky. A mouth sore that lasts less than two weeks is usually not something to worry about. It will eventually disappear by itself.
Common mouth sores are canker sores (aphthous ulcers) that occur inside the mouth and not on the lips. They are not contagious, and can be caused by many things. They should not be considered a problem if they persist for more than two weeks.
Fever blisters or cold sores are caused by the Herpes simplex virus and occur on the edge of the outer lips. They can be contagious and are easily treated.
Oral thrush, also known as candidiasis or oral thrush, is a yeast infection that causes sores in the mouth. It can occur in children, adults, people with diabetes, people who wear dentures, and those who are undergoing cancer treatment.
6. Tooth Erosion
Acid attacking the enamel can cause tooth erosion, which is the destruction of tooth structure. Tooth erosion symptoms and signs can vary from sensitivity to more serious problems like cracking. Tooth erosion is more common than people might think, but it can also be easily prevented.9
7. Tooth Sensitivity
Millions of people suffer from tooth sensitivity. Basically, tooth sensitivity involves experiencing pain or discomfort to your teeth from sweets, cold air, hot drinks, cold drinks or ice cream.
Sensitive teeth can cause discomfort when brushing or flossing. The good news is that sensitive teeth can be treated.10
Sensitive teeth can also be a sign of a cracked tooth or a tooth abscess, which needs to be treated by your dentist to prevent losing a tooth or getting an infection in your jaw bone.
To determine if you have tooth sensitivity suddenly, visit your dentist.
8. Toothaches and Dental Emergencies
Although many dental emergencies and toothaches can be avoided with regular visits to your dentist, they can still happen. A dental emergency can be extremely painful and frightening.
Common problems that require an urgent trip to your dentist include a broken or cracked tooth, an abscessed tooth, or a tooth knocked out in an accident.
If you have a broken or dislocated jaw, severe cuts to your lips, tongue, or mouth, go to the hospital for trauma treatment. You should seek emergency treatment if you have difficulty swallowing, a fever, or facial swelling.
