There are different dental problems that contribute to the deterioration of our teeth’s condition. The best way to avoid any dental procedure is to take good care of your oral health.
- Tooth decay –This occurs when plaque, the sticky substance that forms on teeth, combines with sugar and/or starch from the food we eat. The best way to prevent tooth decay is by brushing twice a day, flossing daily and going to your regular dental checkups.
- Gum disease – There are many studies that show how gum disease is linked to heart attacks and strokes. This is characterized by an infection in the gums surrounding the teeth and is also one of the common causes of tooth loss.
- Tooth erosion – This is caused by acid attacking the enamel in teeth. Its signs and symptoms may include sensitivity and cracking of the teeth.
