13 Most Common Dental Issues




13 Most Common Dental Issues

Suffering from a dental problem can disturb anyone’s life. Most people face dental issues due to their negligence and financial incapacities. 

Once, I had to visit Bahria Orchard Hospital for my gingivitis. I was lucky enough to come across one of the exceptional and best dentists in Lahore. During my visit, I came to know that some common dental issues are affecting almost every other person. But the good is that you can avoid these problems by following the dentist's instructions.

If you are having any dental problem but unaware of the type and cause of the issue, this article is a must-read. Here is a list of the 13 most common and serious dental issues.

Gum Disease

Most of the time adults complain about gum problems. Gingivitis is among one of them and requires immediate medical attention. It can lead to more serious problems such as periodontal diseases if not treated properly. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 30% of adults suffer from these medical issues around the world.

Bad Breath

Bad breath can be the most humiliating and embarrassing problem. Most people suffer from this condition which is also known as halitosis. It can be the result of some dental issues such as dry mouth, oral cancer, or gum diseases. According to studies, about 85% of people face embarrassment due to this dental problem.

Tooth Decay

If you are too lazy to brush your teeth even before going to bed then you are welcoming tooth decay in your life. Tooth decay is the result of a combination of plaque and sugary food. It can be prevented by regular brushing, flossing, and regular medical check-ups. 

Dry Mouth

Dry mouth or xerostomia is a condition in which your salivary glands lose their function and your mouth becomes dry. In saliva, some chemicals are present that have antibacterial properties and fight off plaque. Mostly smoking, certain medicines, and stress can be the reason for this condition. 

Usually, certain medicines or chemotherapy increase the risk of dry mouth. It can contribute to the occurrence of some other issues such as tooth decay or bad breath etc.

Oral Cancer

If people know that some dental issues can be deadliest such as oral cancer, they will immediately quit smoking. Yes! Tobacco is the main cause of oral cancer. It can be more shocking or alarming that its death rate is higher than any other cancer. Because initially, oral cancer is painless and asymptomatic. In the United States alone, approximately 54,000 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed with 13,500 deaths each year. 

Mouth Sores

Mouth sores are the indication of a yeast infection, commonly occurring in infants and denture wearers. However, don’t panic if it lasts only for a week and then vanishes on its own.

Tooth Erosion

Tooth erosion happens due to enamel removal by the acid attack. It can make your teeth sensitive and cracked. But it can be prevented by practicing good oral hygiene habits.

Toothache

Most people experience toothache often in their lifetime. But it can be alarming if it becomes more frequent and severe. Toothache can be a sign of cavities that require immediate medical attention.

Stained Teeth

Stained teeth can make one’s smile uncomfortable. It can be the result of food, medications, or tobacco. Stained teeth can be whitened at home by a plastic tray or whitening gel provided by the dentist.

Cavities

Cavities are tiny holes in the tooth. They are more shocking once discovered because they develop silently. Cavities occur when plaque builds up on the teeth and destroys the outer hard enamel. Proper brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day can be a better option.

Chipped Tooth

A chipped tooth can be the result of an accident. For the treatment, the dentists usually recommend crowning or resin material to replace a chipped tooth.

Impacted Teeth

If an adult tooth doesn’t come properly called “Impacted”. If a tooth comes against a tooth, bone or gum can be impacted. You can ignore it if it is painless. But in case of severe pain, the dentist removes the impacted teeth surgically.

Wisdom Teeth Problems

Wisdom teeth often come along with pain and discomfort. However, if it's painless you’re among the lucky ones. Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to some other problems such as cavities as well as gum diseases. In this case, dentists recommend surgical removal of the teeth.

In a Nutshell

In nutshell negligence to dental issues can be problematic. However, severe issues can be prevented by taking regular care of oral hygiene. Now it’s up to you either you will take care of your teeth or like to suffer from dental problems.
