Here are 10 reasons why people might suddenly start experiencing pain from cavities in their teeth:
1. Drinking More Soda
When you consume an excessive amount of soda, the sugar works together with the bacteria in your saliva to produce acid. Unfortunately, the newly formed acid will attack your teeth, and over time it will start rotting away parts of your teeth, which will eventually lead to the formation of cavities. In addition, both regular soda and sugar-free soda contain their own unique acids, which contribute to the conflict that occurs within your mouth.
2. Eating a greater quantity of foods high in sugar
It is common knowledge that sugar erodes and dissolves the enamel that covers our teeth. Your teeth are in a constant state of conflict if you eat a lot of foods that contain a lot of sugar because sugar causes cavities.
3. Your gums are beginning to pull away from your teeth
This process, also known as gum recession, takes place as you get older. As a result of this unfortunate occurrence, the root of the tooth is now visible. Because the root of the tooth does not have an enamel covering like the rest of your teeth do, it is more susceptible to decay and cavities than the other teeth in your mouth.
4. An Unexpectedly Dry Mouth
Your body can’t digest food properly or keep your teeth in good health without saliva because it contains essential substances that are necessary for digestion. The presence of proteins and minerals in saliva, which protect tooth enamel and reduce the risk of tooth decay, are both contributed by saliva. On the other hand, life is full of things that can cause dry mouth, such as engaging in strenuous physical activity. If you have less saliva in your mouth, there is a greater possibility that sudden tooth decay and cavities will develop in your teeth.
Your mood is not the only thing that stress can affect. It has an effect on your entire body, including the quality of your sleep. Bruxism, which is the medical term for the habit of grinding teeth and clenching jaws, can develop in people who are under a lot of stress. Bruxism can cause the tips of the teeth to appear flat, and it can also wear away the enamel of the teeth. When the enamel covering of the tooth is worn away, it opens the door to the possibility of tooth decay and, eventually, cavities.
6. Taking Cough Drops in Your Mouth
You are at an increased risk for suddenly developing cavities if you are someone who has been experiencing an increase in the frequency of colds, which has led to an increase in the frequency with which you have been sucking on cough drops. Why is this the case? These over-the-counter cough medicines contain sufficient amounts of sugar to cause tooth decay. To add insult to injury, the vast majority of people are unaware that cough drops contain sugar, and as a result, they do not brush their teeth after using them.
7. Brushing Your Teeth for an Excessive Amount of Time
It is true that brushing your teeth can help prevent cavities, but brushing them too vigorously can actually lead to the development of cavities. When you brush your teeth too vigorously, the bristles of your toothbrush wear away at the enamel layer that protects your teeth from decay and cavities. This can be avoided by brushing your teeth less frequently.
8. Not flossing teeth
Whenever you eat, food will become lodged in the spaces between your teeth. Even after brushing your teeth, the bristles of the toothbrush will not remove all of the food particles from between your teeth. Plaque is an accumulation of bacteria that forms on teeth when food particles remain lodged between them for an extended period of time. Because it prevents bacteria from multiplying and spreading, flossing your teeth reduces the likelihood that you will suffer from gum disease or tooth decay. Not flossing on a consistent basis has the opposite effect, hastening the process by which sudden tooth decay and cavities can develop.
9. Not brushing your teeth enough
This is an obvious motivation. If we wanted our teeth to be strong and healthy from the time we were young, both our parents and our dentists drilled it into our heads that we needed to brush our teeth at least twice per day. Surprisingly, there are some individuals who do not adhere to the admonition contained in this vital passage. In point of fact, one in every four adults, and one in every three men, admit to only brushing once or once every other day. Not only that, but if you only brush your teeth once a day, you are 33 percent more likely to suffer from tooth decay and cavities. This is because brushing your teeth only once a day.
10. Ignoring the Need to Visit the Dentist
If you have never had problems with your oral health and your teeth have always been strong, you probably believe that visiting the dentist is a complete waste of your time. After all, he is only going to tell you that your teeth are in good condition. Right?! The act of presuming is yet another contributor to the sudden formation of cavities. Keep in mind that tooth decay will eventually lead to cavities, which means that cavities can be avoided if the tooth decay is diagnosed and treated in its early stages. If you stop going to the dentist for checkups on a regular basis, your risk of getting cavities will increase.
