Dental health problems – what are the key signs?

Fri

Keep an eye out for dental problems, even after teeth whiteningAfter having teeth whitening treatment or other cosmetic dentistry work, teeth will look sparkly white – but the perfect exterior could mask some serious dental problems.

Northumberland Today listed some of the most common signs of dental health issues, which people should remain aware of to prevent painful infection and emergency visits to a dental health practitioner.

According to the source, obvious signs include sores in the mouth or bleeding gums – but people may not be aware that a dry mouth, white spots or extra sensitivity to hot and cold food could also imply that there is a problem.

Those finding the signs of mouth disease should book an appointment with their dentist as soon as possible, the news source urged.

"Scheduling a regular visit with your dentist, denturist or registered dental hygienist is a good idea anyway," the website went on to say.

CBC recently reported on Bryan Sampson, from Ontario, who had to undergo six emergency dentistry treatments after his teeth became badly infected. Regular check-ups can help prevent conditions reaching such a severe stage.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800516005-ADNFCR

Expert highlights importance of flossing

Expert highlights importance of flossingLifestyle writer Erin Hill has highlighted the importance of flossing regularly to avoid emergency dentistry treatments.

Writing on Plum-Oakmont Patch, Ms Hill stressed that flossing is not as time consuming as most people believe it is and only takes about a minute a day.

"Before, I couldn't take a minute to floss each day, which resulted in having to have three different hour-long appointments to fill my cavities," she wrote.

Many people also believe flossing is an extra financial expense that they can do without, but it there are many cheap flossing products that can be found at popular grocery stores, Ms Hill said.

She also debunked the common misconception that brushing the teeth is a substitute for flossing.

"Brushing doesn't get everything," Ms Hill insisted. "Bacteria that can cause tooth decay still linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach."
