Types of Dental Problems

There are many types of dental conditions, and their causes can vary. Some dental diseases result from bad habits and genetic predisposition, while other problems can be environmental in nature.

Here are some of the most common dental issues we treat:

Bad Bites

A bad bite occurs when upper and lower teeth are not in proper alignment. This can cause chewing force to be unevenly distributed across teeth. Having a bad bite can be a result of teeth being crowded or having too much spacing. Bad bites can also be a result of problems stemming from the TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint). Having a bad bite can cause teeth to be painful, uneven wear, teeth to not touch, and painful facial muscles and joints.

Bad Breath

Also known as halitosis, bad breath results from the build-up of excess tartar and plaque around the gums and teeth, or bacteria accumulation on the tongue. Bad breath is often a warning sign of underlying conditions like gingivitis or periodontitis.

Cavities

Cavities are one of the most common dental problems. Tooth cavities occur due to bacteria accumulation breaking down the tooth enamel. Certain foods can contribute to cavity development.

Chipped Teeth

Having one or more chipped teeth can happen due to biting, chewing, teeth grinding, and accidents. Treatment options for chipped teeth depend on the severity of the injury.

Crowded Teeth

Crowded teeth are a result of genetic or environmental occurrences. Crowded teeth can be related to severe headaches, sleep disorders, gum infections, speaking disorders, and eating issues.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea blocks a person’s airflow during sleep which produces disturbances in their airway. In many cases, sleep apnea is associated with bruxism, TMJ disorders, and mouth breathing.

Tooth Trauma

Tooth trauma — sometimes known as nerve damage — can occur with severe wear, a traumatic tooth event, or improper bite. These situations either have to be closely monitored or treated quickly depending on the specific occurrence.

Receding Gums

Receding gums is a condition where tissue levels around teeth drop due to natural causes (such as aging) or unnatural causes (such as periodontal disease or aggressive brushing trauma to the tissue). Receding gums can lead to tooth sensitivity and leave teeth more vulnerable to decay.

Sensitive Teeth

Tooth sensitivity is often related to decay and “gum recession” which breaks down the enamel and exposes the inside of the tooth. Usually, sensitive teeth are connected to gum disease, infection, or receding gums. Sensitive teeth can cause pain while eating hot or cold foods.

Swollen, Painful Gums

This condition can occur due to plaque build-up around your teeth and gums, which creates a breeding ground for bacteria. Accumulated plaque causes gum infection and can lead to gingivitis, periodontitis, and periodontal disease.

Tooth Abscess

A tooth abscess is caused by a bacterial infection located in the gums or inside the nerve of the tooth. There are two types of tooth abscess: periapical and periodontal. Sometimes a tooth abscess can be related to dental cavities, trauma, or poor oral care.

Tooth Pain

Almost everyone experiences tooth pain from time to time. Pain is often due to small changes in your bite, nighttime habits, or tooth problems that need to be addressed. Making an appointment as soon as possible can help you diagnose the cause of your tooth pain.
