General and Preventive Dentistry

Outlined are some of the most commonly occurring dental problems and quick fixes until you see your dentist. Good oral hygiene is essential for pristine oral health.

Here are some of the most common tooth problems

  1. Impacted tooth

“Impacted tooth” refers to an adult tooth that hasn’t fully erupted. When a tooth becomes trapped against another tooth, bone, or soft tissue, it is known as an impacted tooth. A dentist may advise you to leave it alone if it isn’t troubling you. However, if it aches or is likely to cause issues in the future, an oral surgeon can remove it.

  1. Cracked Tooth

It’s not easy to have a cracked tooth, but it not difficult either. It can happen while you eating, or while playing without a mouth guard, or simply while cracking a nut, and you might end up with a cracked molar. You must be wondering if it’s possible for your dentist to save the tooth? Well, that depends and can be decided by an expert dentist.

To prevent the fracture from worsening, most dentists recommend crowns for cracked teeth. The problem becomes more complicated if the tooth is sensitive to warmth and cold. Until you see your dentist, try chewing on the opposite side. If the break is above the gum line, a root canal and crown may be required. However, a deeper crack necessitates the extraction of the tooth. Fillings can make a crack more likely.

  1. Hyperdontia

Have you ever counted the total number of teeth in your mouth? Most individuals, started off with 20 primary teeth (sometimes known as “baby teeth”) and progress into adulthood with 32 adult teeth. Hyperdontia is a condition in which some people have additional teeth. It’s possible that people with it also have a cleft palate or Gardner’s Syndrome (which causes non-cancerous tumours). The excess teeth will be extracted, and the bite will be corrected using orthodontics.

  1. Gap Between Teeth

A gap between the front teeth might not seem like a big deal to those who don’t have it! It can be a whole load of inconvenience for those who have gap between the teeth, specially while biting or food getting stuck easily in the gaps. There are many celebrities who have donned the ‘gap between front teeth’ look. If you wish to fix it, you can use orthodontics to shift your teeth closer together, as well as aesthetic choices like veneers or bonding.

  1. Gum Problems

Are your gums prone to bleeding? Are they soft? Is it possible that they’re pulling away from your teeth? You could be suffering from gum disease (gingivitis). Plaque, a sticky bacteria, forms below the gum line and causes it. If left untreated, it can lead to bone loss, which can cause your teeth to shift or become loose. It may be more difficult to chew and even talk as a result of this. Brush, floss, and rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash on a daily basis to avoid gum disease, and see your dentist for regular cleanings.

  1. Wisdom tooth Issues

Count yourself lucky if your wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, arrived without any issues, according to your dentist. 90 percent of adults have at least one wisdom teeth that is impacted, or unable to fully grow in. Cavities, damage to adjoining teeth, and gum disease can all be caused by wisdom tooth problems. Between the ages of 17 and 25, wisdom teeth usually appear. Your dentist should keep track of how they’re doing. You may need to get them removed if they become a concern.

  1. Difficulty in Flossing

You should be able to floss easily without any difficulty. Floss should always be able to fit between your teeth, no matter how tight the fit is. If not, you may need to switch to a waxed or thinner floss. You might also use a looped flosser or a dental pick to clean your teeth. Experiment with different products until you discover one that works for you, and then use it every day. Flossing is essential for healthy tooth hygiene.
