The teeth are not present only as the functional grinders and cutters or the cosmetic smile-flashers; they are an important part of the human body, which require diligent care-taking. Good dental care means good oral hygiene and simple easy-to-follow practices without medical intervention can keep dental ailments at bay. As the saying goes “Prevention is better than cure” and proper dental care can take you a long way in keeping tooth-decays, bad breath, plaque, canker sores, gums-ailments and others of the line at the safest distance from your well-being.
Dental attention starts with the right way of brushing to flossing methods, choosing the right toothpaste, about foods or drinks that can cause harm and healthy food and drinks to fortify your teeth, oral hygiene and fighting bad breath. A background study reveals the significance of dental care and also the routine you can set up (diet and health-wise) to ensure that you maintain good healthy teeth.
Dental problems that strike the most due to poor lifestyle habits or ignorance about dental care will be described in the following section, charting a remedial or preventive course of action. The starting point or the tell-tale symptoms of bad dental care is Plaque a layer of colourless deposit on your teeth which encourages the growth of micro-organisms (bacteria). The bacteria gradually wear out the tooth enamel causing cavities, bad breath, gum diseases and oral infections. Plaque can be removed through brushing, flossing or professional dental cleanings. Tooth decays or cavities, is a condition where the enamel wears out exposing the nerves of the tooth and causing sensitivity and tooth-ache. In the initial stages tooth decays can be coated with regular brushing with fluoride toothpastes, whereas in severe cases medical interventions is required. Gingivitis or swelling of gums is usually caused by bacteria harbouring in the plaque. Gingivitis can lead to premature falling of teeth and also be extremely painful. Periodontitis is a gum-infection caused by bacteria, and if left untreated can cause damage to the gum tissues and the tooth-bones. Treatment involves administering antibiotics under medical prescription. Tooth abscess is pus formed over a germ-struck tooth (decayed) usually caused due to gum infections, which can cause excruciating pain. And if not treated promptly can escalate to other layers of your mouth-region or your body.
