Dental caries involves the destruction of hard dental tissues (enamel and dentin) by bacterial activity in the oral cavity. These bacteria produce, from food remains, acids that attack and demineralize the enamel, managing to perforate the tooth and reach the pulp.
The treatment of caries from its origin is crucial to avoid the appearance of more serious problems, since its uncontrolled progress can cause the total loss of the tooth or complicate with other oral pathologies with a worse prognosis and more invasive treatment.
The action of cariogenic bacteria and the dental deterioration that it produces is highly influenced by external factors that can enhance its corrosive activity, such as inadequate dental hygiene, unbalanced diets rich in sugars and starches, inadequate production of saliva, dry mouth and lack of fluoride.
Gingivitis is one of the most common oral problems. It is a mild inflammation of the gums that causes discomfort, bleeding and irritation. In the vast majority of cases, it is caused by not brushing our teeth enough, but, although it is a reversible problem, we must take it seriously because if we let it evolve it can turn into periodontal disease, a problem that is more difficult to solve and that If left untreated, it can sometimes lead to total loss of teeth.
If we don’t brush our teeth properly, plaque builds up on them. This plaque is a kind of invisible sticky film full of bacteria that must be removed daily. If we don’t, this plaque will eventually harden, turning into tartar that accumulates under the gums. This tartar makes it more difficult to remove plaque and also protects bacteria. As a result, the gums become inflamed and begin to cause discomfort and bleeding. If we do not solve the problem in time and allow the problem to establish itself, the inflammation will cause the loss of those gums and the bone underneath, thus initiating periodontal disease.
