Many dental disorders are associated with damage to a tooth or teeth. Although teeth are extremely hard, your teeth are also very sensitive. From childhood in to adulthood most people will have two sets of teeth that form naturally.
When the second set has pushed through, it’s very important to then take very good care of them. By simply brushing your teeth a few times a day and then rinsing your mouth with mouthwash you will save yourself a lot of wasted time and money going to the dentist.
If you do not look after your teeth, fillings, or gum disease could be not too far away. If you have a fear of dentists consider using hypnosis.
There are many different dental disorders: Dry mouth, bad breath, teeth grinding, cavities, plaque and tartar, misaligned teeth and discolored teeth.
Cavities begin to occur when your teeth start to decay. The tooth’s enamel starts to become thin and the cavity grows inward. Once the cavity reaches your root, it can cause a huge amount of intense pain.
Everyone’s mouth contains bacteria and it’s our job to brush that bacterium away at least three times daily.
If too much bacteria forms, it will most certainly eat away at our teeth which will cause many different dental problems.
If you become aware of the cavity forming before it reaches the dentin, you can reverse the cavity and the enamel will fix itself.
You can be prescribed a fluoride rinse, which will help to restore the enamel. If the cavity has reached the dentin, your dentist will have to get rid of the decay and seal the area.
Plaque is a film that is caused by a buildup of saliva, food debris, and bacteria. Tartar is formed from the plaque hardening and it starts to form at the base of your teeth.
You can treat plaque on your own with regular brushing and flossing. However, tartar must be removed by your dentist.
Unaligned teeth can occur when the jaw is not properly aligning with the wisdom teeth which may cause overcrowding. Your dentist can help you to correct this with metal or clear braces. In many cases, wearing a retainer can significantly help.
It is also possible for your dentist to remove your wisdom teeth if there is any possibility that they will cause you future problems.
Staining from drinks and foods that we eat can cause our teeth to become discolored over time. Also, if any tooth has experienced trauma or perhaps doesn’t have enough Vitamin D, it can very often become discolored.
Treating tooth discoloration, involves bleaching, gel trays, and laser whitening techniques.
Please remember that taking care of your teeth will most certainly prevent many of these dental disorders. Dental treatment can be very expensive and if done too often it may lead to sensitivity and pain in your gums.
Taking proper care by daily flossing, brushing, rinsing, and seeing your dentist twice a year will not only save you a fortune but save you a lot of stress and anxiety.
