Four Common Dental Problems and the Best Ways to Treat Them

Thursday, August 9, 2018


Both younger and older people are prone to having dental problems. Since there is no guaranteed way to avoid them, regular checkups are key for spotting these problems on time. Visiting a dentist on a regular basis is just as important as visiting any clinic. Tooth neglect can cause many problems, all of which are treatable with timely intervention. Here are some of the most common problems that make people rush to the dentist’s office.

Cavities

Sugar is the number one enemy of your teeth. If your teeth are hurting when you eat or drink something very cold or sweet, chances are you might have cavities. These are caused by bacteria which settle on your teeth and feed on your enamel. Most people have tooth cavities at some point in their lives, but it’s very important to treat this problem. Cavities can spread towards the root of your teeth which can further cause irreversible damage and require tooth extraction. The best way to deal with cavities is not to have them at all – so, prevention. In an area such as Chatswood, blooming with cafes and restaurants full of desirable sugary goods, it is hard to maintain oral hygiene throughout the day. Even so, carrying a toothbrush or floss with you is a good practice to consider, if you’re not already doing it.

Crooked smile

It is not that rare for growing teeth to lose their way through the jaw and leave you with a crooked smile which can cause a fair bit of discomfort. Shiny metal braces have been a symbol of teen years for a long time, but it is also not uncommon for people to put on braces after their teen years. In such cases, it can be even more discomforting to wear metal braces, which is why new technologies have been developed. At your quality local Chatswood orthodontist you can find lingual braces which are bonded on the inner surface of your teeth. These may take longer to install and cost more than regular braces, but are virtually invisible and often a choice of people who missed out on wearing braces in their younger years. An example of these technologies is Invisalign which makes personal teeth aligners. Various cases can be treatable, such as overbite, underbite, gap teeth etc. 

Periodontitis

Bacteria can cause problems for your gums as well. Periodontitis, or gum disease, is a form of infection where your gums are pulling back to the root of your teeth due to tissue loss. Development of gingivitis with bacterial plaques is also common. Virtually anyone can develop a gum disease, which is why oral hygiene is at this point the key to good oral health as well. If your gums are bleeding heavily when brushing or flossing, this should be reason enough to visit the dentist’s office as soon as possible. Gum disease has several stages of development, and it is more easily treatable in earlier stages. At an early stage, periodontitis can be treated with a simple change of oral hygiene.

Bad breath

If you work in the business area of Chatswood, it is inevitable you’ll encounter many work colleagues and business partners and in those cases, you don’t want to have bad breath. An unpleasant smell coming from your mouth can be an everyday repellant which we are not aware of but can cause uncanny discomfort in people around us. Bad breath is almost exclusively caused by some sort of oral infection, and thus can be a good sign of bad oral health.  Mouthwash only covers up the problem; if you can’t seem to get rid of bad breath, don’t change your toothpaste numerous times, but visit the dentist to figure out the underlying problem.

Oral health can sometimes be a clue for mapping other diseases as well. Tooth problems are related to diabetes, respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases and many more. Most problems concerning oral health can be prevented with regular checkups, brushing and flossing. Finding toothpaste suitable for your needs and regularly changing your toothbrush is half of the work. When making a health plan always consider brushing your teeth after meals a necessary part on the road towards a healthy lifestyle.
