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:
- Bad Breath: Bad breath is usually caused by bad oral hygiene habits, infections that occur in the mouth, unhealthy clothes, such as tobacco and alcohol consumption, and foods that you eat.
- Tooth Decay: Bacteria and food is the main reason for tooth decay. A transparent and sticky substance called plaque is always forming on the teeth and gums. The plate contains bacteria that feed you in the food you eat.
- Gum Disease: Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection of the gums surrounding the teeth. It is also one of the main causes of tooth loss among adults. Gum disease is an inflammation of the gum lining that can progress to affect the bone that surrounds and supports your teeth. But it usually occurs after age 30.
- Wisdom Teeth: The wisdom teeth are the third and the last molars on each side of the upper and lower jaws. They are also the final teeth to erupt; usually they come when a person is in their teens or early twenties.
- Mouth Sores: Mouth ulcers also known as mouth sores are normally small, painful lesions that develop in your mouth or at the base of your gums. These sores can appear on any of the soft tissues of your mouth, including your lips, cheeks, gums, tongue, and floor and roof of your mouth.
