Top 9 most common dental visits:



  1. Bad Breath: Haltosis also known as bad breath is very common. According to dental studies, about 85% of people with persistent bad breath have a dental condition that is to blame. Gum disease, cavities, oral cancer, dry mouth and bacteria on the tongue are some of the dental problems that can cause bad breath.
  2. Tooth Decay: Tooth decay is the process that results in a cavity (dental caries). It occurs when bacteria in your mouth make acids that eat away at a tooth. If not treated, tooth decay can cause pain, infection, and tooth loss.
  3. Gum (periodontal) disease: Gum disease, is the process that begins when bacterial growth in your mouth begins to lead to the corrosion of your teeth and gums. If left untreated, long-term effects include extensive gum deterioration, along with early tooth loss.
  4. Oral Cancer: Oral Cancer can occur in any part of the mouth; the lips, on the surface of the tongue, inside of the cheeks, in the tonsils, in the salivary glands, and the roof or bottom of the mouth. The Oral Cancer Foundation estimates that over 42,000 people are diagnosed with Oral Cancer every year and 8,000 die annually, that is roughly 1 person per hour in a 24 hour day.

  6. Tooth Erosion: Acid erosion, also known as dental erosion, is the irreversible loss of tooth structure due to chemical dissolution by acids not of bacterial origin.

Under normal conditions, the underlying dentin of the tooth (the layer that immediately surrounds the nerve) is covered by the enamel in the tooth crown, and the gums that surround the tooth. Over time, the enamel covering can get thinner, thus providing less protection. The gums can also recede over time, exposing the underlying root surface dentin.
  8. Toothache: A toothache refers to pain around the teeth or jaws primarily as a result of a dental condition. In most instances, toothaches are caused by tooth problems, such as a dental cavity, a cracked tooth, an exposed tooth root, or gum disease. However, disorders of the jaw joint (temporomandibular joint) can also cause pain that is referred to as "toothache." Moreover, sinus infection can mimic a toothache.
