Wisdom tooth abscess can occur due to decay and infection in the tooth. Due to bad oral hygiene a cavity is formed in the tooth leading to infection. Decay can also be caused after trauma to the tooth or when cracked or chipped off.
Tooth is composed of outer enamel and an inner dentin. The enamel protects the dentin from damage or injury. Damage to the enamel is often associated with a trauma or injury to the tooth but there can be certain other causes also.
Tooth discoloration can occur due to stains on the surface or changes in inside of tooth. Certain foods, tea, coffee and colas can cause discolored teeth. Cigarette smoking and chewing tobacco is responsible for staining the teeth.
Healthy teeth are important as they play a crucial role in the overall health of the individual. In United Kingdom, healthcare services are paid for by the National Health System or the NHS. However dental care is not covered under NHS, which is one of the reasons why British have bad teeth.
