There are many reasons dental problems occur. The most common dental problem is a toothache. It may be alleviated by rinsing your mouth with warm salt water and flossing to remove food caught between teeth or pus around the tooth. See your dentist at Brady Dental Group as soon as possible because antibiotics may be needed.
Cavities are little holes in your teeth and can happen when plaque builds up on your teeth and slowly destroys the enamel of your teeth. This common dental problem can occur in adults as well as children. Stained teeth are another common dental problem. Foods, medications, tobacco, and trauma are some of the reasons that teeth can discolor. Brady Dental Group offers several options that can whiten your teeth and get that winning smile back.
Ice cream should taste good, but if you have given it up because your teeth are sensitive to the cold when it hits your teeth, the dentist at Brady Dental Group can figure out the cause. It could be cavities, worn tooth enamel or fillings, gum disease, fractured teeth or exposed roots. Once the expert at Brady Dental Group figures out the dental problem, you can get back to that cold deliciousness in no time.
Another common dental problem is a chipped tooth. This is the number one type of dental injury. The dentist at Brady Dental Group may recommend a crown if the chip is large or if more work is needed. An impacted tooth is another common dental problem. It usually happens when a tooth is stuck against another tooth, bone, or soft tissue. The professionals at Brady Dental Group can help determine if it needs to be left alone or if an oral surgeon needs to remove it.
Correcting crooked teeth is not just for kids. Straightening crooked teeth and aligning your bite can improve your overall dental health and relieve symptoms like jaw pain. Brady Dental Group can help in making decisions for your overall health. Gum disease is one of the most common dental problems adults get. Gingivitis and periodontal disease could mean that you could lose a majority of your teeth by age 50. Bleeding gums, bad breath, swollen, red or tender gums, loose teeth, or development of pus around the gum line can be prevented by good oral hygiene and visiting Brady Dental Group for a good general cleaning.
Bruxism, or grinding your teeth is another common dental problem usually caused by stress. Bruxism can give you a sore jaw, cracked or loose teeth or can give you a headache. Ask the experts at Brady Dental Group if a mouth guard worn at night would help.
Dry mouth, sometimes called xerostomia, is a common dental problem that is often misdiagnosed. Common symptoms of dry mouth could be as simple as chapped lips, mouth sores and bad breath but, more serious symptoms can manifest such as gum irritation and a burning feeling in the mouth. Some medications and chemotherapy can cause this problem as well. The absence of moisture in the mouth contributes to more plaque buildup, cavities and eventually, tooth decay. If staying hydrated by drinking water does not help, a visit to Brady Dental Group can.
Nothing is more embarrassing than bad breath. Sadly, halitosis is a common oral problem across all ages and it is usually a sign of other dental problems. Bad breath is a common symptom of gum disease, cavities or oral cancer or it could be caused by what you have been eating. Check with your dentist at Brady Dental Group to be sure.
All of these common dental problems can be prevented and kept at bay with very simple day-to-day oral hygiene measures and seeing your dentist at Bray Dental on a regular basis. Brushing in the morning and before bed alone won’t be enough to make sure your oral health is in tip top shape. Make an appointment with Brady Dental Group and keep your smile looking healthy.
