The problem is it doesn’t necessarily follow that not having any pain, means you don’t have any dental problems. Tooth decay and gum disease need to be well advanced before they cause pain. By the time they cause pain treatment becomes more difficult more expensive and time-consuming and the outcomes are less predictable. At our checkups, we will check your teeth and gums very carefully and advise you of any potential problems. We also check for mouth cancer. If your teeth and gums are completely healthy, we will give you advice on how to keep them that way. We may also recommend you increase the interval between check-ups to a year if you are spectacularly good!
Bad breath is most commonly caused by the smelly gases produced by the bacteria coating your teeth and gums. Food debris trapped in between the teeth can also start to decompose and cause a very unpleasant odor. So effective and regular tooth brushing and cleaning in between your teeth with dental tape or interdentally brushes and cleaning your tongue is crucial to keep your breath fresh.
Strong foods like garlic coffee and onions and smoking of course add to the problem, as can having a dry mouth caused by certain medical conditions and some prescribed drugs and mouth breathing. Artificial saliva products may help.
Infections in the throat nose lungs or sinuses and liver or kidney problems may also cause bad breath. If we can’t find a dental cause for your problem we may refer you to your doctor.
Sensitive teeth are usually triggered with cold food (ice cream) or drinks, or touch (toothbrush or fingernail) or sweet foods (chocolate). The pain is severe but only lasts for a few seconds. If you get pain that lasts longer than this and is triggered with hot things more than cold you have a toothache, not sensitivity!
Sensitivity can be caused by exposing the more sensitive dentine on your teeth either by brushing too hard or drinking /eating too many acidic foods, fizzy drinks, white wine, fruit juice. The solution is to limit or expose your teeth to acid attack, clean with an electric toothbrush and use toothpaste for sensitive teeth. Use the toothpaste as an ointment… rub it into the sensitive areas and leave it there.
