Treat Dental Problems Early!

Even minor dental problems are usually an early warning sign of more serious issues and prevention is always better than cure.

Although sensitive teeth or a swollen gum may seem to have cured themselves, this is unlikely to be the case. These problems are likely precursors of impending dental problems — and should be investigated by a dentist as soon as possible.

Many dental problems that will get progressively worse include:

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. This disorder, in which the airways become blocked while sleeping, can lead to problems such as fatigue, high blood pressure, depression, dry mouth, damaged tooth enamel and gum disease.

Teeth Grinding. Called bruxism, teeth grinding usually occurs during sleep and wears down the teeth, damages tooth enamel and can loosen teeth.

Gum Disease. Early stage gum disease, gingivitis, can be treated by a dentist and is reversible when caught early but gum disease is much harder to treat and can eventually lead to tooth loss.

Although thankfully rare, oral cancer is also a serious health risk and needs to be caught early for the greatest chance of successful treatment.

Never hesitate to consult your dentist at the first sign of problems as the sooner you seek treatment, the more successful the outcome will be and you can find out more at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/why-its-crucial-to-detect-dental-diseases-early/.
