A neat, white smile is the crowning glory of anyone's face, so it's only natural to want the best. But, unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with a gleaming, perfectly aligned set of teeth! But all is not lost because cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve that million-dollar smile.
The advancements in cheap cosmetic dentistry mean that practically any dental condition can be remedied. Let us look at some of the most common dental problems and fix them.
Many common dental issues can arise from life's daily activities and habits. Below are just a few that we see most frequently. If you have any of these problems, we can provide an evaluation to help you find the best solution for your needs.
Dental hygiene is essential after the appearance of permanent teeth. Tooth decay is a common problem experienced by those who do not have their plaque and tartar regularly removed. Tooth decay usually begins with the build-up of plaque. If left uncleaned, the plaque turns to tartar.
The bacteria in the tartar then secrete acidic metabolic wastes, which, over time, dissolve the teeth causing cavities or further decay. Cavities can be quickly filled, but if the decay has reached the tooth’s pulp, the patient may need to go in for a root canal or a tooth extraction. In this case, dental prostheses, implants and veneers are good options.
Other Common dental issues are Overbites or underbites. Caused when the skull's upper and lower maxilla (or jaw) do not align, creating an often unsightly protrusion of the teeth.
Not only lessen the aesthetic quality of the face, but it can also cause difficulties in chewing. It can even prevent the patient from closing their mouth fully. An orthodontist can correct this problem to fit the patient with a set of braces to slowly and gradually realign the lower and upper maxilla.
Plaque is a sticky film that builds upon the inside of your teeth. It causes cavities called "Candida". The best thing you can do to prevent cavitation is to brush your teeth twice a day. Floss once a day, and visit the dentist every 6-12 months for teeth cleaning.
Gum disease is another serious common dental issue that can lead to tooth loss, jawbone loss, and other problems. If you want to learn how to prevent and treat gum disease and keep your teeth in tip-top shape, check out this article.
