Types of dental diseases
A disease is an abnormal condition of an organism that impairs bodily functions, associated with specific symptoms and signs. The mouth is an important organ with many different functions. It is also prone to a variety of medical and dental disorders.
A dental disease (syn. mouth disease, oral disease, stomatognathic disease) is a disease which affects the teeth or oral tissues. The World Health Organization uses the term "Diseases of oral cavity, salivary glands and jaws." Dental diseases may be classified into: 1) noncarious lesions; 2) dental caries; 3) carious complications; 4) the diseases of parodontium; 5) the diseases of oral mucous membrane.
Noncarious lesions of teeth present pathology of dental tissues, arising during teeth development (e.g, hypoplasia, fluorosis) or after the dentition (e.g. erosion, tooth wear, acid necrosis of hard tissues). Fluorosis is a chronic disease that is caused by excessive intake of fluoride. Excess of fluoride leads to uneven mineralization, increased fragility, defects of enamel. Tooth erosion is caused by acidic foods and drinks 'dissolving' away the surface of the tooth. Chemical necrosis happens to people who are constantly in contact with corrosive environments, mainly in manufacturing. Acid and some other substances damage the enamel. Acids may affect, directly entering the mouth, or dissolved in saliva after penetration through the respiratory system.
Dental caries (tooth decay) generally occurs when plaque is allowed to remain on the surface of a tooth for an extended period of time. Plaque is a sticky substance that is naturally formed in the mouth and contains bacteria which feed on the sugars that are present in foods and drinks. The bacteria produce an acidic waste product that can penetrate through the surface of the tooth, eventually leading to the formation of cavities.
Carious complications: Complications of dental caries include tooth loss, dental abscess, pulpitis, rotting teeth etc. A person with a dental abscess has a collection of pus near a tooth, caused by a bacterial infection. Pulpitis is the inflammation of the pulp, causing pain and pressure in the tooth.
The diseases of parodontium. Parodontium presents a complex of tissues surrounding root of the tooth and having the common genetic and functional features (periodontium, alveolar bone, gingiva with periosteum and dental tissues). Gingivitis, the first stage of periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, starts when the bacteria in dental plaque irritate the gums and cause infection. Parodontitis is the inflammation of parodontium tissues, characterized by progressive destruction of the parodontium and the bone. Periodontitis is a set of inflammatory diseases affecting the periodontium, i.e., the tissues that surround and support 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. Parodontosis is characterized by a dystrophic lesion of parodontium. Parodontoma is a tumoral process in parodontium.
The diseases of oral mucous membrane include oral cancer, oral leukoplakia, smoker's palate, oral candidosis, smoker's melanosis etc. Leukoplakia is a precancerous, slowly developing change in a mucous membrane characterized by thickened, white, firmly attached patches. Nicotinic stomatitis, or smoker’s palate, is a common tobacco-related type of keratosis that occurs exclusively on the hard palate,and is classically associated with heavy pipe and cigar smoking.

Ex. 13. Read and translate the following text without dictionary:
Dental caries is a disease where bacterial processes damage hard tooth structure. Caries can be classified by location, etiology, rate of progression, and affected hard tissues. Gum disease may refer to gingivitis or periodontitis.
Gingivitis is an irritation of the gums. It is usually caused by bacterial plaque that accumulates in the small gaps between the gums and the teeth and by calculus (tartar) that forms on the teeth.
Periodontitis refers to a number of inflammatory diseases affecting the periodontium. 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. Three main categories of periodontitis exist: chronic periodontitis, aggressive periodontitis, and periodontitis as a manifestation of systemic diseases.
Ex.14. Fill in the table and give the examples for different types of dental diseases:
Ex.15. Insert the missing prepositions (by, with, to, of, in) and translate:
The first stage … gum disease is known as gingivitis. As with tooth decay and cavities, gingivitis is caused … bacteria in plaque that damage the gums by creating acid. Some … the signs and symptoms of gingivitis are swollen or puffy gums, bleeding when brushing or flossing, and persistent bad breath. Gingivitis is a reversible condition that can be treated … proper oral hygiene and professional care. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress … a serious type of oral disease known as periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can lead … a weakening of the support system that holds the teeth … place and the erosion of the gum line surrounding the teeth. Over time, periodontal disease can even cause loss … the teeth. While gingivitis is reversible, the damage caused … periodontal disease is permanent and is not reversible.
