Default Tooth troubles



Bad breath - Most people suffer from bad breath occasionally. Bad breath is usually due to the breakdown of proteins by bacteria somewhere in the mouth. Maintaining good oral hygiene, eliminating gum disease and scheduling regular professional cleanings are essential to reducing bad breath. Brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. Brush your tongue, too.

Tooth decay - Tooth decay is a very common problem. Bacteria normally reside in the mouth. They, however, mix with the proteins present in the saliva (spit) to form plaque and attach to the hard enamel surface of the tooth. The bacteria feed on food sugars and starches and produce an acid. This acid eats into the tooth enamel damaging the tooth.

Gum disease - Gum disease (also called periodontal disease), is an infection of the tissues that support the teeth. Gum disease is caused by plaque, which is a sticky film of bacteria, mucous and food debris that constantly forms on the teeth. Regular and proper brushing along with good dental hygiene are important for preventing gum disease.

Mouth sores Various types of sores can appear anywhere within the mouth, including the inner cheeks, gums, tongue, lips, or palate.

Avoid hot beverages and foods, spicy and salty foods and citrus. Take pain relievers like acetaminophen.

Tooth erosion - Tooth erosion is caused by acidic foods and drinks that dissolve away the surface of the tooth. It is becoming increasingly more common, especially due to greater consumption of fizzy drinks including diet brands. The best to prevent tooth erosion is to cut acidic foods and drinks from out diet.
