What Are The 5 Most Common Oral Health Diseases

8 hours ago

Estimated Reading Time: 3 mins
1. Cavities. It’s not surprising to find that cavities are one of the biggest issues in oral health. Cavities are holes in your teeth. They can be filled by the dentist.
2. Gum Disease. Gum disease is another major oral health issue. It can be caused by brushing too hard, allowing bacteria to get below the gum line. Or, it can be a result of the acid produced in your mouth eating the gum tissue, again allowing bacteria in.
3. Oral Cancer. Oral cancer generally affects the lip, throat, and sometimes other parts of the mouth. It’s estimated that 4 people in 100,000 will have this each year.
4. Noma. This disease generally only affects children between 2-6 years old. It’s a serious issue as it causes gangrene in the mouth and face. Thankfully, it’s becoming rarer as it is most prevalent in areas with extreme poverty and very poor oral hygiene.
5. General Sickness. You may not realize it but there is a direct connection between oral health and overall health. Your mouth is full of blood vessels, allowing the plaque and bacteria in your mouth to be carried around your body.

8 Most Common Oral Health Issues and How To Treat …

3 hours ago

Estimated Reading Time: 6 mins
1. Tooth Decay. Tooth decay is a very common health issue all around the world, second only to the common flu and cold. Tooth decay—also known as dental cavities or caries—, is essentially the breakdown of your tooth enamel, the outermost layer of your teeth due to acids made by bacteria.
2. Gum Diseases. There are two different stages of gum diseases: gingivitis—gum inflammation—, and periodontitis—gum infection or gum disease—. Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums caused by bacteria in plaque buildup, causing the gum to easily bleed during toothbrushing, mild to severe irritation, and sensitivity.
3. Bad Breath. Bad breath—the official medical term is halitosis— affects more than a quarter (25%) of people all around the world, and can be very embarrassing.
4. Stained Teeth. There are many different reasons to tooth discolorations: Extrinsic: when stain particles (i.e. pigment from food or drink particles) accumulate on the tooth enamel (the outermost layer of your tooth).
5. Chipped Teeth. Chipped teeth is the most common form of dental injury, and typically caused by an impact injury. However, in some cases biting hard food can cause a chipped tooth (or even relatively soft foods when your tooth is already brittle).
6. Impacted Teeth. Typically occurs on wisdom teeth, “impacted” tooth is when a tooth is not developed properly, and so is stuck against the adjacent tooth or angled at the back of the mouth, and can cause mild to severe pain, as well as increased risks of infections.
7. Tooth Sensitivity. Sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks can be a sign of underlying oral health issues. The most common cause is tooth decay or cavity, while other causes like gum disease, exposed pulp, cracked/chipped tooth, and worn tooth enamel/fillings can also be the culprit.
8. Mouth Sores. There are actually various types of mouth sores besides the infamous canker sore. Canker sore, however, is indeed the most common form, and unless it lasts more than a couple of weeks, you might as well leave it alone to heal by itself, and probably take some remedies to relieve the pain.

5 oral health problems to watch out for Brunet

5 hours ago

1. Gingivitis. Very common, gingivitis is the initial stage of gum disease and is, in fact, an inflammation of the gums caused by an accumulation of dental plaque on the teeth.
2. Periodontitis (gum disease) When inflammation spreads and reaches the bone, it progresses to periodontitis, a more advanced stage of gum disease. Periodontitis is an inflammation of the tissues that support the teeth, including the gums and the bones.
3. Abscess. Often quite painful, a tooth abscess is a purulent infection of the mouth that can affect the gums, the teeth or the supporting tissues. There are several types of dental abscesses.
4. Mouth ulcers. Despite its small size, a mouth ulcer can be very painful and uncomfortable, especially when it comes into contact with food and liquids. It presents as a small, whitish sore with a red edge.
5. Receding gums. Gum recession is the wearing away of the gum tissue that surrounds the teeth. It is most often caused by inadequate dental hygiene (horizontal brushing or aggressive toothbrushing with a hard brush, for example) or by gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis, for example).

15 Common Dental Problems and Tooth Diseases

1 hours ago

1. You've made a dentist appointment, and it can't come soon enough. Meanwhile, it can help to rinse your mouth with warm water, floss to remove food caught between teeth, and take an over-the-counter pain reliever.
2. Your teeth are like your laundry: The right approach will remove many stains. Foods, medications, tobacco, and trauma are some of the things that can discolor your teeth.
3. These little holes in your teeth are bad news. You get them when a sticky bacteria, called plaque, builds up on your teeth, slowly destroying the hard outer shell, called enamel.
4. It's the No. 1 type of dental injury. An accident can cause a chip. So can something much less dramatic, like chomping popcorn. Your dentist may recommend a crown if the chip is large or bonding with a strong resin material to replace the area that chipped.
5. An adult tooth that doesn't come in properly is "impacted." It usually happens when a tooth is stuck against another tooth, bone, or soft tissue.
6. You were playing football without a mouth guard, or chewing, or maybe you don’t know how it happened, but now you’ve got a cracked molar. Can your dentist save the tooth?
7. Ice cream should taste good, not make you wince when the cold hits your teeth. The first step is to find the cause. It could be cavities, worn tooth enamel or fillings, gum disease, fractured teeth, or exposed roots.
8. How many teeth are in your mouth? If you’re like most people, you had 20 primary, or “baby,” teeth, and you now have 32 adult teeth. It's rare, but some people have extra teeth, which is called hyperdontia.
9. The fix -- orthodontia -- isn’t just for kids. And straightening crooked teeth and aligning your bite doesn’t just make for a prettier smile. It can be an key part of improving overall dental health, relieving symptoms like jaw pain.
10. You may not consider a gap between the front teeth a problem at all. Famous people who sport the look include singer Madonna, actress Anna Paquin, model Lauren Hutton, and football player turned TV co-host Michael Strahan.
