Poor oral hygiene

Poor oral hygiene can result in any of the following conditions:

  • Dental cavities
  • Gingivitis
  • Periodontal disease
  • Bad breath (halitosis)

Dental cavities or Tooth decay

Tooth Decay  is damage that occurs when germs (bacteria) in your mouth make acids that eat away at a tooth. It can lead to a hole in the tooth, called a cavity. If not treated, tooth decay can cause pain, infection, and tooth loss.

Gingivitis    means inflammation of the gums — is the initial stage of gum disease and the easiest to treat

Periodontal diseases

Periodontitis, also known as gum disease and pyorrhea, is a set of inflammatory diseases affecting the tissues surrounding the teeth. Periodontitis involves progressive loss of the alveolar bone around the teeth, and if left untreated, can lead to the loosening and subsequent loss of teeth.
