Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you in perfect oral health or is there something you’ve noticed about your teeth or gums that has been causing you irritation or concern for quite some time now? According to Pueblo dentists, patients who don’t have a single oral health concern are in the vast minority and that, in fact, most of us have something we’d like to change or something we need to have treated.

In this four-part article series, we’ll be exploring 10 of Pueblo’s most common dental problems and what a good dentist can do to treat them. Armed with this insight, it is hoped that more people will seek the treatment they need to restore the health of their teeth and the full aesthetics of their smiles.

Common Dental Problem # 1: Toothache

Have you noticed that one or more of your teeth have become quite painful, especially when pressure is applied? There are a few things you can do to ensure that the pain isn’t a consequence of food trapped between your teeth. Rinse your mouth out with salt water, floss all of your teeth and take a pain killer to deal with the symptom. However, if the pain hasn’t abated within three days, the key solution available to you is to book an appointment with your dentist.

“Toothache can really vary in intensity and quality, depending on the problem,” says one Pueblo dental implant dentist. “What’s important for anyone to realize is that toothache is typically indicative of infection or decay that is affecting the nerve bundle within the tooth and professional treatment is crucial to address this. If you have noticed additional symptoms that include swollen and inflamed gums around the tooth, pus welling up from the gums and even fever, you may have an oral abscess, in which case you must see the dentist as soon as possible.”

Internal tooth decay is typically treated with root canal therapy.

Common Dental Problem # 2: Cavities

Dental cavities are tiny holes in the enamel of your teeth and they’re caused by the work of oral bacteria. Cavities form when you neglect to brush your teeth frequently and/or thoroughly enough, and especially when you neglect to floss, which is what too many Pueblo residents do.

“Dental cavities and gum disease are all caused by poor oral hygiene and a lack of routine preventative care,” explains a Pueblo dental implant surgeon. “What few people realize is that a cavity left untreated can land them up in my office! The problem is you don’t realize you have a serious problem until the cavity deepens to such an extent that it exposes the nerves of the tooth. By this stage, you will begin to experience pain and sensitivity.”

This highlights the importance of seeing your Pueblo dentist twice per year for check-ups to ensure that your dental enamel is in excellent health. Also be sure to minimize sugar intake, drink plenty of water and brush and floss daily to prevent oral bacteria from undermining your dental health.
