If you are a little wayward and dismissive with the way you look after your teeth and clean them on a daily basis in central Leeds, you are leaving yourself wide open to the threat of teeth decay. Plaque and bacteria form very quickly in the mouth and can start to eat away at the enamel of your teeth and then soon start to break through into the inside. You may well start to suffer from pain, but if you get along to your dentist as quick as you can, you may be able to get away with a filling; ignore the problem though and you will require a root canal in order to remove infection from inside the tooth. This is a very serious point in the onset of decay. It can lead to gum disease and soon after, periodontal disease. Once these evils take hold, they can be very difficult to recover from and you will be in threat of tooth-loss and further infection around the mouth. Improve your oral hygiene, always keep up with your dental appointments and do all you can to avoid the threat of teeth decay- it’s hard but necessary to maintain the future of your oral health.
