Most Common Oral Health Concerns

-A +A


In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it is easy to ignore the smaller things in life. Simple tasks like brushing your teeth or ironing your shirt can take up precious minutes of your day but they should not be ignored. Here, we will be looking at the most common oral health problems such as dental cavities and teeth misalignment, and how to prevent them. 
Misaligned Teeth
One of the most common oral health issues is misaligned teeth, and while this is an easy-to-fix problem, it remains one of the most common. Fixes such as clear ceramic braces, fixed ceramic braces, retainers and functional braces, are a few of the multiple options available to help fix misaligned teeth. There are a number of Braces London services which can offer an initial consultation, to find the most appropriate fix for you.
Gum Disease
Gum disease is a common cause of tooth loss around the world, but with upkeep of oral health and regular check-ups at the dentist, this can be spotted before it becomes a pressing issue. According to statistics, gum disease actually affects 3 out of 4 adults over the age of 35 in the UK. With this being the most common cause of tooth loss, it’s important to spot this in the early stages. Prevention can be put in place quickly by using dental products such as fluoride mouth wash.. Many toothpastes on the market such Sensodyne and Oral B are scientifically proven to help prevent gum disease as well as restore enamel on the surface of the tooth to prevent further dental issues, and as a result, these are well worth the investment.
Tooth Erosion And Dental Cavities
Everyone loves a fizzy drink from time to time, right? When consumed in moderation and with the right dental hygiene, this is not an issue. However with excessive consumption and incorrect dental hygiene this can lead to the erosion of the enamel on the surface of the teeth. This can later cause cracking of the tooth, leading to breakages. As well as tooth erosion, another problem for dental hygiene is dental cavities. Similar to tooth erosion, this is also caused by the sugar intake that not only adults but children are consuming. Cavities, if not handled correctly, can lead to the removal of teeth. According WHO (World Health Organisation), 60-90% of school children and nearly 100% of adults have dental cavities.
Bad Breath/ Halitosis
This is a common symptom that is often overlooked, and as well as being a sign that you need to brush your teeth more effectively, bad breath can also be a sign of something bigger. In fact, bad breath can be a sign of anything from bacteria on the tongue, to something far more serious such as oral cancer. Therefore it’s important to address this problem as soon as it arises. This will ensure that any potential for serious dental issues is reduced, or any more serious issues can be addressed as soon as possible.    
With dental health being such an important part of everyday life, it is imperativethat it is completed correctly, as it is massively beneficial to not only yourself but you loved ones too.
