Many people postpone going to the dentist only when they have a problem with their teeth. While to have beautiful and healthy teeth, it is necessary to see a dentist for a general examination. The cost of dentistry is high in all countries and not all people can receive these services, and many wait until their teeth are completely destroyed and they are eventually forced to have them removed.
So it is better to take care and keep the teeth clean to try to prevent tooth decay.
How to prevent tooth loss?
If your gums bleed while brushing, it is best to be extra careful. If you do not fix the problem in time, your teeth will be more likely to fall out and fall out. In this article, there are some simple solutions to take care of your teeth as much as possible and prevent them from loosening.
Bleeding gums, the first sign of danger: Bleeding, pain or swelling of the gums is an alarm for you to be more aware of the health of your teeth. Gums become inflamed as the amount of bacteria in the teeth increases. Although this problem is not painful, it does not cure itself. As a result, you need to see a dentist.
If you do not act in time, it is possible that your problem has gone from a limited disease of the gums, namely gingivitis, to periodontal disease, which causes the teeth to loosen and fall out by destroying the jawbone.
What causes loose teeth?
In 80% of cases, loosening of the teeth is caused by a chronic inflammatory disease called periodontitis. This gingivitis is caused by bacteria in the mouth, especially saliva. When bacteria accumulate under the gums, the possibility of infection in the gums is created and the bone around the tooth gradually weakens. As a result, the gums recede and the roots of the teeth appear. In this case, the teeth lose their protective tissue and they are more likely to fall out.
In the other 20%, the root of the tooth is involved but there is no inflammatory or infectious problem. In these cases, hard brushing or treatments such as orthodontics can be problematic. Finally, you should know that genetic factors are also effective in loosening teeth. If you have a family history of loose teeth, it is best to see a dentist once or twice a year.
If your gums are bleeding and your teeth are loosening, see a dentist right away and get scaled. By removing plaque (the same hard plaque that sticks to teeth), the dentist kills the bacteria that cause gum disease.
In fact, the first step in preventing loose teeth is scaling the teeth to remove the infection from the root surface of the bacteria-dominated teeth. In some cases, the treatment and elimination of the crime is done in two sessions with an interval of 24 to 48 hours or in four sessions. After scaling, you should brush your teeth regularly and daily. It is also necessary to use disinfectant mouthwashes (prescribed by a dentist).
To prevent gingivitis, we recommend seeing the dentist twice a year.
After the first stage and initial procedures, if there is still a periodontal pocket between the teeth for six to eight weeks (the gap between the teeth and the gums due to the accumulation of bacteria and destruction of the tooth-protecting tissue), surgery is needed. Note that the destruction of gingival tissue causes bacteria to penetrate deeper into the tissues. This condition also causes an abnormal cavity in the bone and soft tissue around the tooth, which is the periodontal pocket.
The surgeon removes some of the gums to open the way for healing and disinfect the tissues. Special measures are needed to repair bone tissue and accelerate the process of gingival attachment to the tooth root.
Undoubtedly, brushing is a hygienic task that should be done daily, but in order to make the most of this hygienic action and prevent dental problems, especially problems related to gums and loose teeth, it is necessary to use the toothbrush method. Know how to hit correctly.
• It is necessary to brush from the pink side (gums) to the white side (teeth) with gentle circular movements. After brushing, floss to remove food debris trapped between the teeth. Be aware that these residues cause bacteria to multiply. Do not forget that you need to brush two to three times a day for three minutes each time.
• Be sure to use soft hand toothbrushes or electric toothbrushes that have gentle circular motions.
Finally, if you have trouble choosing a toothbrush or brushing style, be sure to consult your dentist.
Also, avoid the fear of the dentist and the anesthetic injection and be sure to see the dentist once or twice a year. is caused by a chronic inflammatory disease called periodontitis.
