There are very few people who have not had problems with their teeth. Once a dental problem occurs, it is difficult to avoid it. Let’s assume, regular dental check-ups are not done. Not even a dental problem. But this winter he suddenly started suffering from dental problems. There are several steps that can be taken to overcome this situation.
1. Use a soft brush instead of a hard brush when brushing your teeth.
2. Do not use toothpaste that can remove stains. Also, don’t use toothpastes that contain stain removers, such as aluminum oxide or calcium pyrophosphate.
3. Buy toothpaste by looking at the ingredient list on the packaging.
4. Special toothpastes for sensitive teeth are available in the market, you can use them.
5. No need to brush your teeth vigorously. Brush your teeth normally with gentle brushing.
6. Brush the teeth by moving the toothbrush up and down. Also try brushing each tooth separately. As a result, there will be no chance of damaging the teeth and gums.
7. Many have the habit of chewing their gums. Give up this habit. Also use a ‘mouth guard’ while sleeping at night.
8. Foods that increase tooth sensitivity should be avoided. For example: pickled foods, fruits, juices, ice cream and soft drinks.
9. If teething problems start with cold air, use a mask, muffler or scarf to cover the face.
10. If the problem does not resolve after all this, it must be assumed that it is time to consult a doctor.
Many people complain that they cannot eat sweet or sour. In medical terms the disease is called ‘Hyperemia’. In this condition, it is fixed only by filling the teeth. If this condition is also not treated, it leads to acute pulpitis. In this condition, drinking cold or hot water causes severe pain. If this pain lasts more than thirty seconds, root canal treatment is needed. Acute pulpitis usually causes excruciating pain at night.
Even in this case, if treatment is not done, then the tooth pulp is affected. It causes chronic pulpitis. When this happens, the pain is usually not severe. Even if there is pain, cold water often reduces the pain rather than increasing it. So it can be said, if someone’s toothache subsides in winter or the pre-existing pain feels better, then it should be understood that chronic pulpitis has occurred. In the treatment of this disease, root canal or tooth extraction is also required.
