Tooth decay is a serious problem and some of us don't realize that there are solutions out there that will help prevent tooth decay. Sometimes tooth decay pain can be so bad that it's difficult to work or do your daily routine chores. Here are some causes for tooth decay, which one can know and prevent from happening:


Acidic foods

Eating foods with a lot of acid can a lot of pain in your mouth, especially if you have nerves exposed. try to eat foods that are less acidic.


Tooth grinding

Grinding your teeth causes nerves to become exposed, and can cause pain to your mouth. A great way t solve this issue is to get a mouth guard. You can get a mouth guard especially designed for you by your dental professional.


Tooth-whitening toothpaste


The chemicals used to whiten your teeth can cause tooth sensitivity. Using toothpaste made with the same whitening chemicals also cause tooth sensitivity. You may have to change toothpaste to fix this issue.


Mouthwash


The chemicals in some mouthwashes can cause tooth sensitivity, especially if your teeth have exposed nerves. You can fix the issue by using neutral mouthwashes. Alternatively, you can avoid rinsing completely and focus on brushing and flossing your teeth.


Gum disease


You may have receding gums. Since your gums do not cover the entire tooth, it can cause sensitivity. Your dentist may recommend that you get a tooth sealant to help with the pain.


Excessive plaque


Plaque buildup is always a big problem for your teeth. The bigger the buildup of plaque, the greater the chance your teeth will become very sensitive. The easiest way to solve this issue is to see your dentist on a regular basis to get regular cleanings done.


Cracked tooth


Having a cracked tooth can cause pain. The only way to solve this problem is to see your dental professional and they can give you the options that are available to you to fix the problem.


Dental procedure


You go to the dentist to remove a decayed tooth, get a filling, or some other type of work. The immediate effect will cause some sensitivity, although the pain will be short, you still will feel slightly uncomfortable for a few days after the procedure.

Tooth pain seems minimal but it can keep you from doing important things in your life. In most cases, you can solve those problems by seeing your dentist on a regular basis.

Tooth decay is the destruction of the enamel of a tooth. It is caused by bacteria that collect on tooth enamel. They live in a sticky, white film called plaque. The cavity has to be cleaned and restored by a dentist. If decay is left untreated, it will reach the tooth's pulp, which contains nerves and blood vessels.
