Most Common Dental Problems by Siri dental care

Dental problems are most common and most of them can be easily prevented. Brushing twice a day, flossing daily eating properly, and regular dental checkups are essential steps in preventing dental problems.

Here is a list of common dental problems:

  • Tooth Erosion: Dental erosion is the most common chronic disease in children aged 5 to 17 years. Erosion is the loss of tooth enamel caused by an attack of acid. Enamel is the hardest and protective layer of the tooth, which protects the sensitive dentin below. When enamel is used, the dentin is then exposed, which can cause pain and sensitivity.
  • Tooth Sensitivity: Dental sensitivity is a common problem that affects millions of people. Basically, tooth sensitivity means experiencing pain or discomfort in the teeth due to sweets, cold air, hot drinks, cold drinks or ice cream. Some people with sensitive teeth even experience discomfort due to brushing and flossing.
  • Toothache and Dental Emergencies: Unfortunately, many people will experience the discomfort of a toothache at some point in their life. Sometimes, the pain may be caused by a cavity in the tooth, but there may also be other causes for tooth pain. Toothache can vary from mild to severe, depending on the cause of the problem.
  • Unattractive Smile: While an unattractive smile is not technically a "dental problem," it is considered a dental problem by people who are unhappy with their smile and it's also a major reason.
  • Yellow Teeth: Yellow teeth are generally considered less attractive than whiter teeth. The teeth may turn yellow due to the staining of the outer layer of the white enamel. Smoking is a common cause of spots and can turn teeth into yellow, brown or black. Dark-colored foods, beverages and spices can stain teeth.
