Disorders and diseases that have to do with our oral cavity are not at all uncommon and unheard of. Sometimes they may not have direct relation to the teeth but if anything is not right in there, it needs immediate attention. Remember that your adult teeth are permanent and that they will not grow back if you lose them. Here are some of the most commonly seen and experienced oral cavity disorders and diseases and how they can be treated for a good outcome.
The number one on the hit list goes to decaying teeth that have been plaguing mankind since, well forever. No matter what you do sometimes it feels like there really is no way to combat this. While genetic factors and general health conditions too can contribute to this, the biggest culprits are unhygienic practices, not flossing, not brushing, and not eating too much sweet or acidic substances, cold or hot and spicy food items, excessive consumption of alcohol and tobacco. If you can cut down on these factors you will see that your oral health is gradually recovering. If you have sudden pain, sharp sensitivities that just fleet by, throbbing and dull aches, tender spots in your teeth and anything that is out of the norm, do not wait for it to get a bit worse. Just go to your family friendly dentist in Essendon and get yourself some dental help. You will be grateful you went at your earliest.
Root Canal Issues
Root canals are next up with a high frequency among even kids and not just adults. Root canals are in simple terms the nasty cousin of the decaying tooth and will give you pain in your mouth, face, jaw, head, ear and neck like no other not to mention high fever that will generally set your entire body on the high pain endurance scale. Basically, if you continue to ignore cavities that are yet painless or a decaying tooth that does not feel wrong yet, know that when they start to feel wrong, it will be wrong like snowing in Hades. Don’t delay,just get help. Your root canal will be cleaned out and most often the tooth replaced but you will also be put on antibiotics in some cases and you will need to follow instructions but it is not a very invasive procedure.
Gum disease is a condition of the oral cavity that simply goes unnoticed because in most people it is so slight. Basically bleeding gums that also feel loose around your teeth can indicate gum disease. If your gums are supers sensitive, if certain spots feel swollen or tender, if it has open wounds and is oozing liquid you should be really worried. Healthy gums are supposed to be light pinkish in colour, tight and will not bleed. Blackish looking gums too therefore could indicate a problem. If you go to a doctor they will assess how far along the disease is and recommend gargles, mouthwashes and toothpastes along with gum gel that will help it recover, antibiotics and strict adherence to instruction s along with follow up.
