You need a dentist to live a life with good oral health. There are some signs that tell you that it is the right time to visit a dentist for the inspection of your mouth, teeth, gums, and tongue. Diagnosing dental problems in the initial stage is easy to be treated by a private dentist in Basingstoke. There are some common dental problems that you should be educated about and how to avoid them.
Gum Disease: Also known as gingivitis and periodontitis, is a common dental problem faced by most people. It is the inflammation in the gums caused by bacterial infection. The common symptoms of gum disease are swollen gum, bleeding gums, loose teeth, gums pulling away from teeth, pus in gums, pain while chewing food, etc. If you are observing these symptoms then you should go and visit a dentist as in the initial stage it can be reversed with less effort. This can be prevented by maintaining dental hygiene. You just have to brush twice a day, floss your teeth and visit the dentist every six months.
Sensitive Teeth: You may have noticed that your teeth hurt whenever you eat or drink something cold or hot such as soft drinks, ice cream, coffee, etc. This condition is known as tooth sensitivity. It happens when your tooth enamel is worn out and nerve endings are exposed. There can be many causes of tooth sensitivity such as brushing too hard, teeth grinding, and regularly eating acidic foods and beverages. The dentist will inspect the teeth and find causes such as cavities, loose fillings, or recessed gums. You should use toothpaste that is specially made for sensitive teeth to treat it.
Halitosis: Also known as bad breath is faced by almost every person at any point in life. If you are experiencing this, then you need to visit the dentist as it is also a sign of underlying oral complications. In general, it is caused by trapped debris between the spaces of teeth. So it is common among people who do not maintain oral hygiene, or who smoke. When you don’t clean your teeth every day, leftover food particles remain in your mouth which results in the growth of bacteria.
