Common Oral Conditions In Adults And DIY Personal Care Products

By Kimberly Myers

It is very important to have regular dental check-ups done to avoid common oral conditions in adults. Dental problems become very prone to old people at this stage. Therefore, maintaining a good care routine using DIY personal care products is essential.

Bacterial plaque and tartar easily build up on teeth if proper treatment routines and cleaning are not followed. If these are left untreated, they eventually damage the support structures and jawbone that leads to tooth loss. This type of disease is known as the periodontal disease. It is commonly known as the gum disease.

Gum disease is mainly caused by the bacteria found in the mouth. When left un-brushed or flossed, the bacteria together with other particles that would have formed plaque harden on teeth surfaces. This causes tartar that may be is not so east to be removed by just brushing.

If the tartar is not medically removed by the dentist, it causes more harm to the gums also. The inflammation of the gums is known as the gingivitis. In this case, the gums are swollen and bleed easily. However, this can be controlled by regular cleaning from a dentist and daily home care i. E. Brushing and flossing. At this stage, there are no teeth losses.

If an individual does not go to the dentist to get the gingivitis treated; it eventually develops into periodontitis. In gingivitis, the inflammation will only be on gums. But, in periodontite, the inflammation would have spread to the molars and incisors thereby creating pockets. At this stage, fangs get loosened by the reaction of the combination of excessive bacteria and the good bacteria produced by the immune system to fight infections. The supporting structures get damaged hence teeth increasing the chances of falling out.

There are various causes of gum disease which like smoking, hormonal changes and other illnesses. Hormones are known to make gums too sensitive. Sensitive gums are easily affected by bacteria that cause gingivitis. If neglected, gingivitis then develops into gum disease. There are some illnesses that affect some body parts more including gums. Illnesses like diabetes, AIDS, and cancer are known to affect gums. In some cases, gingivitis is hereditary.

Moreover, medications can also increase the risk of gum disease. This is because some medications make the mouth dry. Saliva acts as a protective barrier. Thus excessive dry mouths are vulnerable to bacterial infections. In addition, other medications promote excessive growth of gum tissue which can become hard to be removed by brushing hence forming a plaque. Some people are genetically prone to severe gum ills than the other.

It is recommended that you visit a dentist should you feel symptoms of oral disease. The signs and symptoms include bad breath, red swollen gums tender and bleeding gums, loose molars and incisors, painful chewing, elusive gums or big appearing fangs. Having regular dentist visits and proper good treatment routine will help control the symptoms and eventually have healthy gums.
