When oral health concerns arise, it may be challenging for you to travel all the way to emergency departments or get a consultation in the middle of the night. With online consultation services like The Teledentist, you get advice and treatment as soon as possible.
Gum recession is a condition in which the gums pull away from the teeth, exposing the roots. Although it is common in older adults, gum recession can happen for various reasons, such as brushing too hard, using a toothbrush with stiff bristles, grinding teeth, or having a gum infection. If left untreated, gum recession can lead to further infection and tooth loss. Gum recession is preventable with early treatment. So if you notice that your teeth are getting longer, your gums bleed easily or become red and swollen, consult a professional for treatment as soon as you can before it leads to other significant dental problems.
Missing or Broken Teeth
Missing or broken teeth are unsightly and can also be signs of poor oral hygiene or potential dental problems. Not only is eating an issue, but ignoring it will lead to further dental issues such as infection of the nerves. When your teeth are broken or missing, your gums or broken teeth are prone to having food stuck, and this will cause bacteria to breed. In such cases, it will cause an infection, especially when your nerves are exposed to bacteria. If you are missing one or more teeth, it is crucial to see a dentist as soon as possible to determine the best course of treatment.
Clenching your teeth may seem like a minor problem but can be a sign of underlying dental or mental health issues. Clenching may be a way we cope with anger, frustration, or stress, and it can lead to various physical problems such as headaches, jaw pain, and tooth damage. Excessive clenching can lead to the inflammation of jaw joints, muscles, and even the ligament, a Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder. You may feel pain when the muscles and ligaments surrounding your jaw joints are inflamed or irritated. If you find yourself clenching your teeth, try to relax your jaw and take breaks throughout the day to give your mouth a rest. And most importantly, consult with a qualified dentist for a suitable treatment plan.
