Why Does My Tooth Hurt? (Part 1 of 2) (https://goo.gl/dx5JPo)

Among all the things that might cause a toothache, the most common are tooth decay, inflammation, an abscess, a cracked or impacted tooth, gum disease, and sensitive teeth.

Tooth decay
Tooth decay involves the erosion and cavity formation in the outer surface of the tooth.

Inflammation of the tooth pulp
This condition occurs when the tissue in the center of the tooth becomes inflamed and irritated, which causes pressure inside the tooth.

Abscess
When the buildup of bacteria inside the pulp chamber becomes infected, it causes a dental abscess. The pressure from the draining infection causes pain that can worsen with swelling if left untreated.

Cracked tooth
Over time, your teeth can be weakened due to pressure from biting and chewing, which may cause a tooth to crack.

Impacted tooth
Teeth can become impacted when they can't move into their proper position.

Brampton Dentist Explains 3 Top Mouth Problems (https://goo.gl/BQRQhq)

Oral cancer
A mouth sore that doesn't go away could be a sign of oral cancer. You may feel unexplained numbness in the face, mouth, or neck.

Symptoms also include problems chewing, speaking, or swallowing.

Causes may include smoking cigarettes and using smokeless tobacco, heavy drinking, overexposure to the sun, and a family history of cancer.

HPV has been linked to oral cancer as well.

The good news is that if caught early, oral cancer is treatable and curable.

TMJ
Temporomandibular joint syndrome is a problem of the jaw that can cause severe pain in the jaw, face, ear, or neck. Causes may include clenching, tooth grinding, or injury. The results often include pain, headaches, dizziness, even trouble swallowing.

Amalgam Tattoo
If you've ever noticed a blue-gray "stain" in your cheek or gum following dental work, this is called an amalgam tattoo, and it's formed by a tiny piece of amalgam filling that gets embedded in your mouth's soft tissue. They pose no harm. However, if the spot changes color or size, there's a possibility it may not be an amalgam tattoo, in which case, you should speak to your dentist about it.

Brampton Dentist Explains the Top Mouth Problems (https://goo.gl/BQRQhq)

Thrush
Thrush is caused by candida yeast, which mostly occurs in older adults and babies. However, a weakened immune system and medications can make for a suitable environment for candida to grow.

Black hairy tongue
This is a painless condition that occurs when the little bumps on your tongue grow long and trap the bacteria that already live in your mouth. It makes the tongue look black and hairy. You can usually remove it with a tongue scraper, although sometimes, medication is necessary.

Leukoplakia
A reaction to an irritant, such as rough teeth, badly fitting dentures, or even smoking, may cause leukoplakia. It can show up as white patches and can't be scraped off. Persistent patches may be a sign of a precancerous condition.

Lichen planus
This rare rash shows up as lacy, white patches or red shiny bumps inside the cheeks or tongue. There is no known cause.

Is It Normal to Experience Tooth Pain After Cavity Fillings? (https://goo.gl/YTw5GH)

Yes. Although fillings are used to replace the decayed area in teeth in an aim to reduce the pain associated with the cavity, it's not unusual to experience pain after a filling.

Here are some reasons for tooth pain following a filling:

Tooth sensitivity Teeth that have recently had fillings will be more sensitive to hot and cold foods, air temperature, and pressure of biting. This should resolve itself within a few weeks. If it hasn't, you should contact your dentist.

Cracked or loose fillings If the filling does not fit properly or if a crack develops, it will cause pain, and you should contact your dentist to have this addressed.

Allergic reaction to tooth fillings Some people are allergic to certain filling materials, such as silver. Tell your dentist about any allergies you may have when discussing your filling choices.

Brampton Dentist Discusses What You Should Know About Oral Cancer (https://goo.gl/MtmoHE)

Oral cancer, also known as oropharyngeal cancer, can affect the lips, gum tissue, cheek lining, tongue, the jaw, and throat.

It starts as a tiny, unnoticed white or red spot anywhere in the mouth or throat. If you notice any discomfort or swollen areas, you should bring it up to your dentist at the next visit. They can talk to you about your health history and examine your mouth and throat for signs of cancer.

Symptoms of mouth and throat cancer include

☛ sores that bleed easily
☛ a thick lump
☛ a crusted area
☛ numbness, tenderness, or pain
☛ a change in the way your teeth fit when you chew

Tell your dentist about any problems you have when chewing, swallowing, speaking, or moving your jaw or tongue.

Regular dental check-ups, including an examination of the entire mouth, are essential in the early detection of cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions.

What Are Common Dental Problems for Adults Aged 40 to 60? (https://goo.gl/MtmoHE)

Gum Disease
Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease, which is reversible. If left untreated, gingivitis could lead to a more serious, destructive form of gum disease called periodontitis.

To prevent gum disease, you should brush twice a day and floss between meals, eat a balanced diet, and schedule regular dentist visits throughout the course of your life.

Missing Teeth
Adults between ages 20 and 64 have three or more decayed or missing teeth. If you're missing one or more teeth, you should seriously consider correcting this because missing teeth affect how you speak, chew, and in some cases, bone loss may occur.

Options to replace a lost tooth include:

Bridges - anchored to adjacent teeth and can be removable or fixed

Dentures - optional if you've lost all or most of your teeth

Implants - the closest resemblance to a natural tooth

Why Do We Have Wisdom Teeth? (https://goo.gl/MTnooM)

According to a study, about 53% of us have or have had at least one wisdom tooth. Men are also more likely than women to have wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth begin to form deep down in the gums at the age of 10. They go on to develop for several years and don't typically erupt until the ages of 17 and 25. They got their name because that's the age range when people are said to have reached the age of wisdom.

A leftover from our past
Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that early man needed to consume a diet that consisted of staples such as leaves, nuts, and meat. Often, these foods were coarse and left uncooked.

Since early humans needed that chewing power, they also had larger jaws to accommodate.

However, as human civilization changed, so did our needs including many aspects of how we eat, rendering wisdom teeth as useless. We'll discuss more in the next post.

Is It Safe to Get a Dental Checkup If I'm Pregnant? (https://goo.gl/H7tfGe)

Yes, it's safe to get a dental checkup if you're pregnant. In fact, you should continue to visit the dentist regularly while you are pregnant.

Here's what you need to do:

Tell your doctor you are pregnant:
Given that you are pregnant, your dentist will most likely refrain from taking routine x-rays. However, the health risk to your unborn baby is small. If you're in a position where you need emergency treatment or specific dental x-rays to treat a serious issue, your doctor can take extra measures to protect your baby.

Schedule your dental exam early
Go to the dentist early in the pregnancy because after the 20th week, you may be uncomfortable sitting in a chair.

Get all the treatments you need
If you avoid treatment, you risk your own health along with your baby's health.

Why Am I Afraid to Go to the Dentist and What Can I Do About It? (https://goo.gl/H7tfGe)

Some people are scared of going to the dentist because they are afraid of physical pain. Other times, those who have experienced violence or trauma may have trouble sitting in the dentist's chair due to post-traumatic stress or fear.

Before the exam begins, talk to your dentist about your concerns so that together you can find ways to make the experience comfortable for you.

Your dentist can help soothe your anxiety by:

☛ explaining each step
☛ agreeing to stop at any time if you give a signal to do so

Your dentist might help you relax by playing soft music or TV in the room. Some dentists might even give you medication to help you relax such as nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas.

In the case where you have debilitating anxiety over going to see the dentist, you might benefit from being treated by a mental health professional.
