DENTAL PROBLEMS AND DISEASES
Acid damage Teeth. Gum Disease, Gingivitis and Periodontitis.
Dental problems and diseases may affect the teeth, the gums, or other tissues and parts of the mouth. Dental diseases can cause much more serious problems than a toothache. They can affect our ability to chew, smile, or speak properly. Their severity may range from a simple aphthous ulcer, to a common tooth cavity, or up to oral cancer. Tooth decay and Gum disease are two of the most common diseases. The first signs of Caries can be milky white areas on the teeth or along the gumline.
Infractions - invisible cracks in the teeth
Infractions (cracks) in the teeth is a common problem and who daily dealt with the country's dental clinics. One can see cracks in that you can not really chew with the tooth. If you hit the hard core, it hurt. The tooth is often thermal-sensitive. Why do teeth crack? Cracks appear on the load and therefore molars most vulnerable. Cracks are often seen in teeth with large fillings. Dental caries and large old fillings weaken the tooth's strength and structure, combined with prolonged chewing load and possible grinding of teeth to form a very fine crack (fracture), which as a rule is deleted from the bottom of the infill. Cuts or pushes you turn, there's a risk you can get cracks that cause symptoms. Teeth grinding increases the pressure on small and large molars with 2-300 percent. It may therefore be advantageous using the bite rails at night if you frequently grind their teeth. The best treatment of a tooth with Infractions will often be a crown treatment, so chewing movements pushing the tooth as a whole, rather than splitting it apart. Often tries to glue the crack together, but chewing movements are so extremely violent that to glue the crack in many cases would only be a stopgap. As often is the correct treatment, the tooth gets applied to a tooth crown.
If the problem is not treated will crack in the tooth to continue to spread, like a crack in the glass. In some cases, the crack running all the way to the tooth surface and a piece of dental breaking off. The crack may also extending down to the deep tooth root, and sometimes directly into the site and nerve. Teeth which can be felt in months stable, even if they are present in an inflammatory condition. It can be very difficult to predict the course of the untreated tooth, since it is not possible to see the crack extending down through the tooth either by the clinical study or in a radiograph (X-ray). Only the degree of symptoms and the crack location in the tooth can cause dental impression of how serious the situation is. It is a bad idea to ignore the condition, when a small crack can be effectively treated. A large crack could mean that the nerve is infected by bacteria, which often means greatly increased temperature sensitivity, and possibly acute inflammation of the nerve with a root canal treatment to follow. If you have a crack in a tooth that hurts, required patience and one must be prepared that it may take time and be connected to both discomfort and expenses before a tooth is finalized. So talk to your dentist and follow the advice you get.
Acid damage to Teeth
Acid damage comes as a result of drinking and eating acidic products too often. For example, soda, juice, lemonade, fruit and sour wine gums. Some products are worse than others, especially sodas and colas particularly etches the teeth. Partly because of its acidity, and partly because it is often consumed in large quantities. And it helps not to brush teeth. Loss of enamel are not restored. Acid damage also called erosions, are hard to see with the naked eye. Indeed, they must be pretty serious before other than the dentist can see them. In the beginning you could not feel that the teeth are about to disintegrate. The first minor symptoms can be mild pain and discomfort when eating or drinking 'cold or hot' or you get some 'rush' when you brush your teeth. Later fade it a bit more, and you can begin to feel the sharp edges, like little tooth shards fall off, and the teeth will look worn, shorter and slightly discolored out. Acid damage can for example be avoided by limiting the consumption of sodas, juices and juice, also sugar-free products and by drinking water and milk instead. - Click more on how to avoid Acid damage to teeth >>
Rare Dental Diseases
Dental problems may also be innate. The below mentioned 39 dental diseases are rare congenital dental disease which poses serious problems with your teeth. Congenital rare diseases that involve significant, documented dental problems and high costs of dental treatment. Selected congenital and rare dental diseases: Amelogenesis imperfecta (severe), agenesis (multiple teeth), Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, Beckwith Wiedeman syndrome, Cerebral with spaticitet, CHARGE syndrome, Cherubisme, Chondrodysplasier, Cleidocranial dysplasia, Dentindysplasi, Dentiogenesis, imperfecta, Hereditary rickets, ECC syndrome, ectodermal dysplasia, Ehlers Danlos syndrome, Epidermolysis bullosa, Hypofosftasi and the like disorders of the calcium-fosfos metabolism, immune failure (severe cases), incontinence pigmenti, chromosomal defects (rare), Marfan, Multiple retained molars and other heavy eruptionsanomalier, Multiple idiopathic rodseorptioner, Möbius syndrome, neurofibromatosis, Noonan syndrome, Osteogenesis imperfecta, osteopetrosis, Odontodysplasi, Prader Wili Syndrome, Progressive muscle diseases, Rieger syndrome, scleroderma, Silver-Russell syndrome, SMMCI, Sturge Weber syndrome, Severe tooth formation disturbances after early irradiation of children, tuberous syndrome and Williams syndrome.
Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease)
The most common diseases of the gums is gingivitis and periodontal disease. Gingivitis is a chronic inflammation of the part of the gums, closest tooth crown. In gingivitis, the fibers and the bone around the tooth has not yet destroyed. So if there is only talking about gingivitis and inflammation treated, the gums become healthy again, without tooth fastening suffer lasting damage. If coatings and tartar on the teeth are removed and the teeth subsequently kept clean, gum inflammation disappears within a few days. Some tartar faster than others and should therefore be removed tartar often. If gingivitis is not treated, the inflammation can spread to the deeper tissues and develop into periodontal disease. Periodontitis is also called 'the loose tooth disease'. Periodontal disease symptoms and rarely causes can not be seen with the naked eye. The disease starts as an inflammation with bleeding from the gums and deepened periodontal pockets. Advanced periodontal disease leads to tooth / teeth become loose and often moves in the tooth row. To prevent gum disease, it is important to keep his teeth clean and gets brushed them at least once a day combined with regular use of toothpicks and dental floss as the gums between the teeth kept clean. - Click more on Loose teeth and Periodontal >>
Diabetes & the Oral Cavity
Diabetes is a chronic disease that unfortunately affecting more and more. The most common problems diabetes patients experience in the oral cavity are caries, periodontal disease, salivary gland dysfunction, fungal infections, inflammatory disorders such as lichen planus, infections and delayed healing, and taste disturbances. When diabetes disease is not under control, a high glucose content in saliva may help bacteria to thrive. Diabetes reduces the body's immune system, and therefore easily arise inflammation of the gums. Due to reduced resistance and a longer healing process occurs gingivitis and periodontitis frequent - and more severe in diabetic patients. Therefore it is important to maintain stable blood sugar levels, eat a sensible diet and have a good oral hygiene. Oral diseases that can ultimately lead to loss of teeth, leading to poorer quality of life. Therefore, talk to your dentist about your diabetes. - Click more on Diabetes, teeth and gums and sequelae of mouth >>
Dental Caries (Tooth decay or a Cavity)
Dental caries, is a very common dental disease, all ages can get. Dental caries occur when bacteria on teeth convert sugar to acid. The acid is gradually dissolves the tooth's surface, and the hole is formed. The first signs of caries may be milk white areas on the teeth - they are often seen along the gumline. It may also be darker areas on the teeth or chewing surfaces of the tooth surfaces facing each other. - Click how to prevent Dental Caries >>
