A small cavity is usually the first indication that an abscessed tooth can cause a problem in the mouth or throat. This problem can be very serious. Children can often end up needing tonsillectomy. It is also possible to get an abscessed tooth infected, which could lead to pneumonia or enter a life threatening condition. There are several ways to treat an abscessed tooth and the most popular is through antibiotics.
Normally a small number of these abscessed teeth can cause an unusual toothache. If the tooth is in the middle of the gums there will be an unusual number of tartar that develops. It is this tartar that causes the odd toothache. This tartar can be removed but it will take several weeks and the tooth will have to be restained.
If you get an abscessed tooth you should always seek medical attention as soon as possible. The infection can be extremely dangerous to the health of the child and is very painful and very dangerous. Make sure that you get the painkillers that are prescribed to you and that you keep on treating the abscessed tooth and allowing the infection to heal. The time taken to treat the infection can lead to permanent damage to the tooth.
Bleeding gums can be caused by gingivitis. This may be evident if you are a regular flosser, yet still suffer from bleeding gums. For others, gums may bleed when they floss simply because they have not worked up a tolerance to flossing regularly. There are also certain prescription drugs which can cause gum bleeding by thinning the blood. Some women may also see gum bleeding during pregnancy - usually during the second trimester.
Some people are blessed with just the right balance of water, saliva and tartar and rarely if ever have bleeding gums. However, most of us suffer from this from time to time. In fact, there are certain foods that are known to be responsible for causing the redness of your gums and teeth.
Chronic bad breath is most commonly caused by gum disease. Occasional bad breath however, is more likely caused by typical food buildup. Even after brushing, failing to floss can leave food particles or residue that fosters bacteria leading to bad breath.
Other causes include dry mouth which is a common side effect of many medications. Here is a list of the most common medications that cause dry mouth:
Bad breath can also be caused by digestive issues. Talk to your dentist if you suffer from bad breath even after following a strict oral hygiene routine so that he may determine if you should be referred to an MD or specialist.
Usually caused by tooth decay but can also be caused by worn enamel or gum disease. Tooth sensitivity is actually a type of nerve pain. For example, if an oral condition leads to nerves in the gums being exposed to extreme temperatures such as cold water or food, the nerve will trigger pain. However, if you have persistent tooth sensitivity and pain without the cause of hot or cold foods or liquids, then a more serious condition may be present.
As most of us know, sensitivity to the taste and smell of things is one of the most common causes of pain when chewing or talking. It's considered as a normal, natural part of human response. However, when sensitivity in the teeth become more of a problem, we can easily discern it as a symptom of a more serious condition.
A toothache is when one may experience pain in the tooth. This is usually because of damage to the teeth or other conditions. These can be anything from a cracked tooth to tooth sensitivity and painful gums.
Tear in the gums: This one is caused by the blood vessels in the gums. When there is excessive bleeding in the gums, it can result in pain and also bleeding in the mouth. Even though this condition is usually not life threatening, it can cause bleeding on the inside of the mouth cavity.
Metallic cavity in the tooth: If you find out that you have an infected or decayed tooth, you can likely find out that the tooth is inflamed. If the disease is bacteria or fungus, it will show up as yellowish or dark spots. These spots can be black, red, or brown, and if not treated the infection may spread further to the gums.
Brittle bone: There is a very wide range of bone problems in a person. Toothaches, loose teeth, and broken or decayed teeth all can be caused by cracked or fractured bones. These conditions can be from fractures or from problems within the bone or teeth.
Gums bleeding: Sometimes, the cause of a bleeding gums may not be severe or from a very dangerous dental problem. For example, a child might have a bit of redness in the gums that can be worse during childhood. This redness can also be caused by a phlebitis, also known as a preterm delivery, where the child's veins burst in the mouth.
When teeth are irritated or have broken or cracked, the tooth will become swollen and damaged. Although this is something that we are not normally conscious of, it may cause some pain when eating, drinking, or chewing. We can usually feel pain when chewing or talking.
Swelling in the jaw: Many cases of soreness, swelling, or swelling of the jaw and/or cheekbone can be related to a number of different dental conditions. A number of these conditions can occur from tooth sensitivity, and swelling of the jaw may be the result of oral infection. Any swelling, redness, or discomfort in the cheekbone can be from a bacterial infection or swelling due to an injury in the mouth.
Bleeding teeth: If you know that you have a problem with bleeding gums or cracking teeth, your dentist will be able to help you determine which condition is causing it. Sometimes, some dental problems are not severe and will heal without surgery. In this case, you may be able to have your gums stitched back up to keep them from bleeding.
