Dental problems can be both costly and painful. Without taking the necessary precautions you could find yourself on the receiving end of a dentist's drill. From cavities to root canals, these procedures are usually a last resort when it comes to taking care of your teeth and gums.

Address Dental Problems Immediately

You didn't heed your dentist's warning when he asked you to brush and floss more frequently. As a result you are experiencing one of the most painful dental problems any patient has had to undergo: the root canal. Essentially this process involves hollowing out the nerve of your tooth to prevent any further decay.

Not all dental issues require painful surgery. Bad breath is a common problem that is easily fixable if you know where the problem originates. Everyone has bacteria that lives in teeth and gums. These bacteria feed on leftover food that you may have missed when brushing.

Causes of Bad Breath

As the bacteria attacks the food is creates volatile sulfur compounds or VSC. This is what causes breath to have a foul odor. Without following up your brushing routine with a thorough floss, you are only eliminating 70% of the bacteria in your mouth. That remaining 30% is what will continue to cause bad breath.
