Why Dental Care is Important?

Dental care is important to maintain a healthy mouth, teeth, and gums, which helps improve your overall health. You must always visit a dentist and get your teeth checked every month. This is because crooked, missing, or diseased teeth, if not treated on time, can interfere with your daily life as they can hinder chewing food properly and speaking. If the problem worsens, it can lead to corrective surgical procedures, which might burn a hole in your pocket. Also, an unhealthy set of teeth and bad mouth hygiene can lower one’s confidence. You must always adopt healthy dental habits such as :

Symptoms of Tooth Decay

Tooth decay or cavities are holes in your teeth. This happens when the acids in your mouth break down the enamel, your tooth’s outer layer. This is a common condition and can happen to anyone. Brushing and flossing your teeth can help if the tooth decay is at the first stage. However, allowing the plaque or the decay to build up can erode all your teeth and create cavities.

Tooth decay usually does not cause pain at first. However, as tooth decay reaches beyond enamel, the symptoms start showing up. Some of the symptoms are as below :

You must always seek a doctor’s attention to see the best dental treatment once you have identified the plaque. This is because, if left untreated, the cavity can destroy all your teeth and create severe complications as the infection goes into your bloodstream and can be life-threatening.

What are the five most common Dental Problems?

The following are the 5 most common dental problems :

Gum disease is an early stage of Gingivitis caused due to plaque buildup. The common symptoms of gum disease are swollen, red, bleeding gums, bad breath, and sensitive teeth. This usually happens if you skip brushing and flossing daily. If left untreated, it can become periodontitis, a severe gum disease. It leads to the loss of a tooth, change in bite, unpleasant taste, and breath.

It leads to the loss of a tooth, change in bite, unpleasant taste, and breath.

Your teeth become sensitive when exposed to hot and cold foods. This is because when the enamel wears away and the dentin is exposed, the deeper nerve inside the tooth becomes sensitive.

Receding gum is also one of the most common dental problems which can also lead to other dental conditions, such as losing a tooth. This is because as the gum recedes, the tooth’s root is exposed, making it susceptible to damage. The condition can be caused due to the following factors –

Though not a natural part of aging, this is the most common condition among older people. The causes of dry mouth include cancer treatment, nerve damage, diabetes, salivary gland disease, etc. You must drink water all day and hydrate well to ensure you are not left with a dry mouth. Also, avoid alcohol, coffee, tobacco, sweets, etc., as these lead to drying of the mouth.

How to Recover Fast
After Teeth Surgery?

Recovery from oral surgeries takes days. However, with the following dental care steps, you can recover early :

Take 2-3 days off from everything – work, school, college to ensure you are getting proper rest. You can usually resume your activities after 24-72 hours. However, do not get involved in strenuous activities after your tooth treatment.

Limit talking, eating heavy food, and drinking for the first few hours. Also, stick to a liquid diet, and avoid spitting to avoid disturbing your wounds. Do not eat too hot or chewy food, which might irritate the wound.

Drink plenty of water. However, take small sips instead of using a straw, as the suction might cause damage to the wound. Also, avoid consuming carbonated liquids, caffeine, or hot beverages and drinks, as it might irritate the teeth surgery area.

Apply oral compresses as advised by your dentist. They usually advise cold compresses for the first 24 hours to minimize swelling, discomfort, and bruising.

Oral surgeons usually direct pain medication. They might prescribe OTC painkillers or prescribe something more potent depending on the condition and severity.

Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to brush your teeth. Be gentle around the surgical area, and the doctors might advise you not to use water to rinse your mouth. You can use lukewarm water with salt every few hours after each meal within 24 hours of the surgery.

What are the Different Types
of Dental Surgery?

The goal of dental surgery is to address various dental issues individuals might be experiencing. The most common types of dental procedures include:
A technique designed to shield a tooth from pain and disease without extraction. The aim of this procedure is to eliminate the diseased pulp and the decaying portion of the tooth.
A drawn-out process that takes two to six months to complete due to multiple procedures involved in restoring a damaged tooth to the jaw. This surgery involves the complete replacement of the decaying tooth.
The extraction of an adult’s last three molars from their jaw. These molars typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 25.
This is typically performed in cases where accidents result in facial injuries. The primary goal of reconstructive surgery is to rebuild the jaw bone and bone structure.
This technique aims to enhance the patient’s external appearance, particularly their smile. Procedures may include orthodontics and tooth whitening.

  • Use desensitizing toothpaste
  • Rinse your mouth using honey and water
  • Green tea can be helpful
However, do not forget to visit the dentist for a checkup and proper dental treatment as they will check and rule out the cause of the symptoms, and then prescribe you medicines to treat the sensitivity of your teeth.
