Common Dental Problems

If you look after our teeth then you are likely to have very few problems with them. Brushing and flossing them twice a day or after every meal can help as can using an antiseptic mouthwash. If this is combined with twice yearly visits to the dentist then your teeth will stay strong and healthy.

However, a good dental hygiene routine doesn’t mean that nothing can go wrong. Dental problems do happen and if they do then they will require treatment by a qualified dental professional.

Most dental problems are relatively minor but more serious conditions can occur although these are, thankfully, rare. If you do notice anything untoward with your teeth and gums then seek your dentist’s advice.

Some dental problems are more common than others, for example, tooth decay and teeth sensitivity. Others such as teeth grinding or ‘bruxism’ are less well known. This guide is designed to give you all the information you will need about various dental problems.

What causes dental cavities? Why are my teeth sensitive? How do I get rid of my ‘gummy smile? These are just some of the more common dental problems.
