Common Oral Health Issues

Cavities (Dental Caries)

  • What Are They? Cavities are permanently damaged areas in the hard surface of your teeth that develop into tiny openings or holes. They are caused by a combination of factors, including bacteria in your mouth, frequent snacking, sipping sugary drinks, and not cleaning your teeth well.

  • Prevention: Regular brushing with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and reducing sugary and acidic foods can help prevent cavities. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are also crucial.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)

  • What Is It? Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It is typically caused by poor brushing and flossing habits that allow plaque—a sticky film of bacteria—to build up on the teeth and harden.

  • Prevention: Good oral hygiene, including thorough brushing and flossing, can help prevent gum disease. Additionally, regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings are important to remove plaque and tartar.

Bad Breath (Halitosis)

  • What Is It? Bad breath can be an embarrassing condition and is often caused by a buildup of bacteria in the mouth, poor dental health habits, and may be a sign of other health problems.

  • Prevention: To prevent bad breath, maintain a good oral hygiene routine. This includes regular brushing, flossing, and using a mouthwash to reduce bacteria in the mouth. Also, drinking plenty of water and chewing sugar-free gum can stimulate saliva production, which helps cleanse the mouth.

Maintaining Optimal Oral Hygiene

Brushing: Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.

Flossing: Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles between teeth.

Regular Dental Visits: Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and professional cleanings.

Healthy Diet: Eat a balanced diet and limit sugary snacks and beverages.

Stay Hydrated: Drinking water throughout the day helps wash away food particles and bacteria.
