Your Handy Reference Guide for Dental Problems

dca-blog_article-29_know-about-common-tooth-problems

Virtually no one gets through life without at least one or two dental problems. Although your teeth are strong and built to last a lifetime, they’re also vulnerable to a variety of problems like decay, gum disease, sensitivity, and impact injuries. When a tooth symptom arises, it helps to know what you’re dealing with, so you can treat it appropriately until your dentist can evaluate it. The better you understand your teeth and the problems that affect them, the better your overall dental health will be. The following tips can help you understand and cope with common teeth problems.

Cavities are one of the most common teeth problems in children and adults. They happen when bacteria-laden plaque builds up and leads to destruction of tooth enamel. To prevent cavities, brush twice a day, floss daily, limit snacks, and keep your dental appointments.

Toothaches have many causes. When pain hits, rinse your mouth with warm water. Use dental floss to remove any food debris that might be caught between teeth, and take an over-the-counter pain reliever. See your dentist as soon as possible.

Tooth grinding, also called bruxism, may occur at night or during the day. Over time, it can lead to tooth decay and jaw pain. An affordable dentist can treat bruxism with a custom mouth guard.

Tooth sensitivity can be caused by cavities, tooth injuries, and gum disease. See your dentist to determine the cause and get relief.

Impacted teeth are teeth that don’t grow in properly. They become stuck inside the jaw. Impaction is a common problem with wisdom teeth, and it can lead to pain, tooth decay, gum disease, and problems with neighboring teeth if left untreated. An impacted tooth can usually be removed by an affordable dentist or oral surgeon.

Gum disease is a common problem that can lead to tooth loss. Symptoms include red, swollen, or bleeding gums. To avoid gum disease, maintain strict oral hygiene.

Tooth stains may be treated with at-home kits or professional bleaching treatments.

Cracked and chipped teeth are both common. Depending on what part of the tooth is damaged, treatment may involve root canal, bonding, or even extraction. Contact your dentist immediately after a tooth injury occurs.

Flossing difficulty often occurs when teeth are too close together. Flossing is an important part of dental care. If you can’t floss between your teeth easily, try using a thinner floss or a waxed variety. A dental pick or looped flosser may also help.
