Symptoms of dental disorders

  • Cavities:

    Bacteria is present on the gums and teeth, but tooth decay occurs when they release toxin or acid which cause damage to the tooth enamel (the outer hardest covering of the tooth). These lead to formation of spots which later become brown and back and ultimately result in tooth cavity.

  • Gum diseases:

    They also occur due to the action of bacteria on the gums. It leads to various symptoms some of them are as follows:

    • Halitosis (persistent bad breath from the mouth)
    • Persistent bad taste
    • Bleeding gums
    • Red, puffy gums
    • Pain or tenderness of gums
    • Separation of the gums from the teeth
    • Pus between your gums and teeth
  • Abscessed tooth:

    Signs for an abscessed tooth are toothache or pain, sensitive to cold or heat, fever, swollen glands of the neck. Aspirin or any other prescribed pain reliever can help to relieve the pain. One can also use warm salt water to rinse the mouth for many times as it reduces the pain.

  • Injured teeth:

    A person may have an injured tooth, but may not recognise until the condition is worsen. He/she may accidentally injure the tooth which may later cause other symptoms such as tooth sensitivity or pain.

  • Dry mouth:

    Some of the symptoms of this condition include burning sensation, difficulty swallowing, dry nasal passage, problem while speaking, sore throat or hoarseness. If the condition is left untreated, then it can lead to the teeth damage due to the bacterial growth.
