Most of the patients who come in to see the staff at Sparkle Dental Boutique have some idea about what tooth decay involves and what problems it can cause for their oral health. Unfortunately a large section of the population has no idea how serious tooth decay can be if left untreated and how much it can damage your general health, as well as damaging your teeth and gums. If more people understood the risks they were exposing themselves to by not cleaning their teeth properly or missing their regular dental check-up, dental clinics would be a lot busier than they are now.
Some of the effects of tooth decay are obvious and widely understood, with tooth loss, bleeding gums, pain and even bad breath all common symptoms of the condition. However, what is less well known is that tooth decay and gum disease are actually caused by bacteria. The damaging germs find their way into your system when food and plaque is left on the surface of the teeth for too long, actually dissolving the outer enamel layer and starting the tooth decay process.
Of course this bacteria can cause all kinds of oral health problems, as your dentist serving patients from Acton often finds out, but more worryingly these harmful germs don’t just stay in the mouth where they began but spread throughout the body. Amazingly scientists have discovered links between tooth decay and strokes, heart attacks, diabetes and many respiratory diseases. Pregnant women should be particularly careful with their oral hygiene, as tooth decay is also linked to low birth weights in babies.
A lot of people who haven’t been to the dentist in years would sign up tomorrow if they realised what kind of diseases they were potentially exposing themselves to, but the good news is that it’s never too late to start taking good care of your teeth. Attending regular check-ups with your dentist is vitally important, as it is these experts who will be able to spot the early signs of tooth decay and help you to take action before the problem becomes too serious.
