Dental diseases or problem starts when the oral environment is not healthy. Maintaining a healthy mouth can help prevent dental problems, but this would require good daily oral hygiene practices. These are some symptoms of dental problems. Candida albicans, a type of fungus, is present in most of the mouth. This is problematic when it takes over the mouth; this organism produces a foul smell when trapped inside the body which is associated with bad breath. Receding gums are oral problems attributed to periodontitis. The gum tissue begins to thin and pull away from the teeth resulting in the exposure of dentin, a type of tissue that covers the tooth. This leads to weak tooth attachment and eventually, it can cause the tooth to fall off.
It occurs most commonly after a person has gnawed on something that becomes lodged in the mouth. It can also be experienced if a tooth is grinding on another tooth.
Dental problems may cause tooth pain or tooth sensitivity. This applies to both upper and lower teeth, but not to all teeth due to varying degrees of sensitivity among them.
If you put something hot or cold in the mouth, this may cause tooth pain and tenderness. Tooth sensitivity is experienced in areas where dental decay exists or is just inflamed.
A toothache is a pain experienced in the tooth region. It can be caused by a dry mouth or by having too much pressure on a tooth.
This development can result in further dental problems such as cracked crowns or loose/ separating front teeth, requiring root canal therapy and/or extraction.
This is usually caused by an inadequate crown (tooth cap) or restorations (tooth replacement). It may also be due to stress.
The occurrence symptoms mentioned above are just external signs that a dental problem is present within the mouth. Therefore, it is important to regularly see a dentist for an oral examination especially if you are experiencing one of the signs mentioned above.
