The dangers of Tooth Decay in London SE1

12 / 05 / 2013

The dangers that threaten the health of our mouths in London SE1 are always there and they love to feed off each other. Bacteria lead to tooth decay, which in turn brings on gum and periodontal disease all heading your to the inevitable- tooth loss. To save yourself from these latter evils, you need to tackle tooth decay head on. Good oral hygiene will help to stop the build up of bacteria and acids on the surfaces of your teeth; getting a good brush, floss, toothpaste and mouthwash will seriously limit the possibility of plaque from forming. Cutting down on bad lifestyle habits, having a good diet and ensuring you mouth is well hydrated should thwart the problem of tooth decay. However, left to do their worst, these acids will eat away until they break through the enamel. It can be painful when you bite onto the tooth, but caught early, your dentist can solve the problem with a filling. Left to fester and carry on the decay, these acids will infect the pulp and the roots of the tooth and in order to save your tooth and prevent the outbreak of an abscess happening, you’ll need a root canal to remove any infection from inside. Between your hygiene programme and your dentist (as long as you make regular visits), between the two of you, you should be able to tackle the problem head on and keep your teeth healthy and free from disease.
