Do I Have Any Dental Health Conditions I Should Know


Posted on 11/21/2022 by Dr. Dani Stansell
Do I Have Any Dental Health Conditions I Should KnowWhile having regular dental checkups and cleaning is essential for your oral health, it's necessary to deal with any occurrence of dental conditions right away for precautionary measures. Some of these conditions that you should know about include

Swollen or Bloody Gums


Inflammation of the gums, bleeding, or any other painful feeling within the gums is an indication of a dental health problem. Swelling, painful sensitivity, and bleeding gums that continues for weeks without signs of stopping and causes irritation to your gums will likely cause gum disease; thus, it's essential to check on this condition and visit a dental clinic to manage the issues.

Tartar Formation


Another dental health condition you should know about is tartar formation and buildup. Moreover, this is never a big issue to most people since it doesn't cause pain or any sensitivity. However, tartar buildup produces acid, which causes tooth erosion and destruction of the enamel over time.

As a result, tooth decay is likely to develop due to plaque formation, and this may extend to cause gum disease. Regular brushing and flossing between meals are essential in removing tartar and cleaning the gums and teeth.

Changes in the Tongue


The tongue is vital to oral health as the teeth and gums. The tongue's color and texture changes could likely indicate a dental problem. A typical dental condition you should know about is oral candidiasis, a fungal infection that causes the development of white lesions on the side of the tongue.

If you discover the formation of these lesions in the language, see your dentist for the appropriate medication to treat the infection. Your dental health is essential; hence if you experience any of mentioned dental conditions above, see your dentist for treatment and oral care.
