Disastrous Effects of Bacteria on the Enamel

Posted on 7/18/2022 by Office
Our mouths are home to various species of microbes, both beneficial and harmful to our dental health. The harmful bacteria work on the teeth enamel, which is the hard outer covering, to weaken it and attack the soft tissues. Tooth Decay Tooth decay is the prevalent infection from harmful bacteria invasion in the mouth. When one eats food and fails to clean up their mouth, the remains tend to stick around the gums and over the teeth forming plaque. Failure to brush your teeth leads to the bacteria in the plaque-producing acids, which in turn eat up the enamel exposing the inner soft tissues. When plaque is left unattended for long, it hardens to form tartar which is quite hard to clean by use of a toothbrush and often requires medical attention. The plaque and tartar accumulation in the mouth leads to gum irritation and inflammation, which explains why you may experience bleeding gums when brushing your teeth. While regular brushing of teeth is key to ensuring you evade tooth decay infections, we advise using fluoride-made toothpaste or applying fluoride on teeth to repair the lost enamel particles due to erosions. Failure to replace the enamel leads to tooth decay, reversible when treated in its early stages. However, if the tooth decay infection is left untreated for long may lead to the loss of more minerals in the teeth, creating holes referred to as cavities that permanently damage the teeth and require fillings. Babies are prone to tooth decay as they consume sugar contents before they go to bed, and parents fail to clean their teeth. Furthermore, people with less saliva production due to intake of some medications or alcohol-based products are susceptible to tooth decay complications. If you notice signs and symptoms of tooth decay, visit our offices early to enable proper medications and avoid cavity formations. Call us today to book an appointment....
