TOOTH DECAY

Tooth Decay in Wimbledon

Tooth decay occurs when bacteria present in your mouth form acids that can cause holes known as cavities. It is a common problem for children, teenagers and adults. If left untreated, tooth decay can be the reason for severe pain, infection and finally, tooth loss.

Symptoms of tooth decay

  • Excessive pain which can cause toothache

  • Sudden discomfort or pain during tooth sensitivity

  • Problem of bad breath

  • Brown, black or grey spot on the tooth surface

  • Visible hole in your teeth

  • Improper oral health and hygiene

How to treat the problem of tooth decay

  • At the early stages, yourdentist will check the sugar intake in your diet. Thenthey may apply a fluoride gel or paste on the affected area. Fluoride protects teeth by strengthening the enamel and making your teeth highly resistant to the acids from plaque that may lead to tooth decay.

  • He may discuss with you about a crown or filling that involves removing dental decay and giving local anaesthetic to numb the tooth.

  • If tooth decay spreads over the pulp, this needs to be removed by performing root canal therapy.

  • If the tooth is damaged badly or cannot be restored, you may need to remove it. Our dental surgeon might replace the tooth with a bridge, partial denture or an implant.

How to avoid tooth decay

  • Brush your teeth two times a day with Fluoride toothpaste

  • Eat proper and well-balanced food

  • Say no to snacks and colored teeth to protect them
