Symptoms of dental problems

Bad breath

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.

excessive fissures

When excessive fissures develop on the surface of a tooth, the enamel layer is breached and large food particles enter these fissures leading to tooth decay. In time, when there is excessive growth of tartar and plaque or gum disease, it can result in the heaving of teeth.

stained yellow

It is fairly common for teeth to become stained yellow. This can be caused by food particles and/or smoking. Teeth also tend to easily develop a yellowish tint as a person grows older. If normal brushing does not remove the yellow coloration, it is a sign of tooth problem.

Dry mouth

Dry mouth is an oral problem that occurs when the salivary glands overwork or underwork. This causes the mouth to feel uncomfortable and quite painful if not treated. In this case, the tooth can be extracted as it is no longer fit for use and threatens other teeth around it.

Jaw clicking

Bleeding gums that are caused by a bacterium known as "Actinomyces" is one of the most common signs of dental problems. In this case, it is recommended to immediately seek medical attention. Jaw clicking is just an irritating feeling experienced in the jaw area.
