General and Preventive Dentistry

If you’ve had a tooth pain or an issue with your tooth, you would know the amount of pain that a simple cavity or a toothache can cause. When you have to visit a dentist for a tooth problem, with the excruciating pain is not always as simple. Following are some common dental issues and tooth diseases that can be easily treated to ensure you have the best of dental health!

Here are some of the most common tooth problems

  1. Toothache

Toothache comes unannounced and at any point of time during the day or night, and reaching a dentist immediately might not be possible. While you wait to get to a dentist, gargling with warm water, flossing to eliminate food stuck between teeth, and taking an over-the-counter pain killer can help. If you detect swelling or pus surrounding your tooth, or if you have a fever, you may have an abscess, which is a more serious issue. Make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. Antibiotics and other therapies may be required.

  1. Sensitive Teeth: Hot or Cold

A sip of hot tea or an ice cream should make you feel good rather than making you shiver as the cold touches your teeth. The first step is to determine the source of the problem. Cavities, worn dental enamel or fillings, gum disease, cracked teeth, or exposed roots are all possibilities. After your dentist diagnoses the condition, you may require a filling, a root canal, or gum therapy to repair tissue around the root. Sometimes you could only require a fluoride gel or a desensitising toothpaste or rinse.

  1. Crooked Teeth

Orthodontics, or teeth straightening, isn’t just for kids. Straightening crooked teeth and correcting your bite improves your smile in more ways than one. It can help to improve overall oral health by alleviating symptoms such as jaw pain. Braces (metal or Ceramic), aligners, and retainers are all options for orthodontists.

  1. Stained Teeth

Your teeth can get stained easily if not taken care of. But, with the appropriate method, you can get rid of a lot of stains. Foods, drugs, cigarettes, and trauma are all potential causes of tooth discoloration. To whiten them, you have three options. A whitening agent and a specific light can be used by your dentist. You can also bleach your teeth at home using a plastic tray and bleaching gel obtained from your dentist or a retailer. Whitening toothpaste and whitening rinses are the easiest options, however they only remove superficial stains.

  1. Bruxism or Teeth Grinding or Teeth Clenching

Bruxism is the term for teeth grinding. One of the causes is stress. Adults may be affected by misaligned teeth or sleep problems. (Allergies might be a contributing factor in children.) Headaches, a sore jaw, and fractured or loose teeth are all symptoms of bruxism. Ask your dentist to fit you with a mouth guard if you grind your teeth at sleep. If it’s a daytime issue, try meditation, exercise, or other stress-relieving techniques.

  1. Cavities

The tiny gaps in your teeth are a dangerous sign. They develop when a sticky bacterial layer known as plaque forms on your teeth, slowly degrading the thick outer coating known as enamel. Tooth decay along the gum line and around the margins of previous fillings can also be an issue for adults. Brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day, restrict your snacking, floss daily, rinse with fluoride mouthwash, and stay up with your dental appointments to avoid it. Consult your dentist to see if a sealant is appropriate for you.

  1. Chipped tooth

It’s the most common type of dental damage. A chip can occur as a result of an accident. Something far less dramatic, such as chomping popcorn, can do the same thing. If the chip is significant, your dentist may propose a crown or bonding using a strong resin substance to replace the chipped area. If the pulp is impacted, a root canal may be required, followed by a veneer or crown.
