The absence of teeth can stem from numerous factors, including inadequate oral care, mouth injuries, gum ailments, tooth decay, and hereditary predispositions. In certain instances, age-related wear and tear can also contribute to tooth loss. It is imperative to promptly attend to missing teeth as they may precipitate additional dental issues, including the shifting of adjacent teeth, impaired chewing function, and speech impediments.
A toothache refers to an uncomfortable or painful sensation in or near a tooth, typically resulting from dental concerns like tooth decay, gum conditions, or dental trauma. The degree of discomfort can vary from mild to intense, and the pain may persist or come and go intermittently. Dental pain often serves as an indicator of an underlying dental problem and should be promptly addressed by a dentist to avert potential complications.
Crooked teeth refer to teeth that are not correctly positioned or are out of alignment. This prevalent dental issue can impact individuals of all age groups. Multiple factors, such as genetic predisposition, oral behaviours, and dental injuries, can contribute to the emergence of misaligned teeth.
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a bacterial infection that impacts the structures responsible for supporting and encasing the teeth, encompassing the gums, connective tissues, and bone. This prevalent ailment exhibits a spectrum of severity, ranging from mild gum inflammation, known as gingivitis, to profound harm inflicted upon the tissues and bone that uphold the teeth, termed periodontitis. Neglecting treatment for gum disease can potentially culminate in tooth loss and give rise to various other grave health issues.
Teeth grinding is a condition marked by the involuntary action of grinding, clenching, or gnashing one’s teeth. While it frequently transpires during slumber, it can also manifest during wakefulness. Teeth grinding has the potential to inflict harm upon the teeth, jaw, and adjacent muscles, and if unaddressed, may give rise to an array of dental and health-related complications.
Tooth Discoloration involves the alteration of teeth from their original white hue to a yellowish, brownish, or greyish tint.
Inadequate oral hygiene is a primary contributor to tooth discolouration, resulting in the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth. Additional factors encompass smoking, the consumption of coffee, tea, or red wine, a diet rich in sugar and carbohydrates, the natural aging process, and specific medications.
