What Health Problems Can Tooth Decay Cause Australia

12.29.2353 hours ago

1. Dull, aching pain is a major symptom associated with tooth decay. If the decay has spread, the irritation may strike the nerve directly – making the pain a lot more pronounced, and creating a heightened sensitivity to hot and cold. If you’re experiencing this, you should visit your dentist immediately, to see if it is possible to treat the decay with a filling. If the decay has spread too far and the nerve is exposed, you may require a root canal. Tooth decay and exposed nerves can also significantly increase your risk of contracting infections, as the bacteria that cause tooth decay are transmissible, and the mouth is a major entry point to the body. While pain is the most common problem caused by tooth decay, it can also predispose you to a range of other health ailments. Poor oral health can impair your general health and well-being by creating or exacerbating health conditions such as heart and lung disease, stroke, or social anxiety and depression. Lesser but still serious side...

1. Tooth decay (dental caries) is damage to a tooth that can happen when decay-causing bacteria in your mouth make acids that attack the tooth’s surface, or enamel. This can lead to a small hole in a tooth, called a cavity. If tooth decay is not treated, it can cause pain, infection, and even tooth loss. People of all ages can get tooth decay once they have teeth—from childhood through the senior years. Young children are at risk for “early childhood caries,” sometimes called baby bottle tooth decay, which is severe tooth decay in baby teeth. Because many older adults experience receding gums, which allows decay-causing bacteria in the mouth to come into contact with the tooth’s root, they can get decay on the exposed root surfaces of their teeth.
