6 Common Teeth Problems

The following problems are some of the most common issues that people have regarding their teeth:

Toothache

An aching tooth can be caused by tooth decay, gum disease, or worn enamel.

Stained teeth

Teeth discolourations are caused by drinking dark-coloured beverages, smoking, and taking certain medicines. Stains on the surface of teeth can be removed with a teeth whitening treatment.

Crooked teeth

Teeth that are not properly aligned negatively affect the appearance of the smile. In some cases, crooked teeth can also lead to dental problems because they are harder to clean.

Chipped or broken tooth

This commonly results from an accident, or by simply biting and chewing on an extra-hard piece of food item (such as ice).

Sensitive teeth

The discomfort of sensitive teeth can be caused by worn enamel, gum problems, damaged tooth fillings, or cavities.

Gapped teeth

Spaces in between teeth can be unattractive. Gapped teeth can be improved by orthodontics, or with dental veneers.

Missing teeth

Tooth loss can be caused by tooth decay, gum problems, dental injuries, and other dental problems. Dental implants provide an ideal solution to missing teeth problems, and can bring back the normal appearance and function of a smile.
