When it comes to oral health issues, one of the easiest ways to spot problems is to take the time to talk to someone who knows more than you.
Dr Marlene Vavrek and Dr Ian Whitehead from the Oral Health Institute are speaking at the ANU’s Annual Conference this week to share how to spot oral health problems.

It is a tool that looks at how your oral care can affect your oral cavity, and what can be done to prevent or treat it.
Dr Vavreks is a Professor of Oral Health at the University of Melbourne and a member of the Faculty of Oral Medicine.
She is the author of several books and articles about oral health.
Dr Whiteheads is a senior lecturer in the School of Oral and Maxillofacial Medicine at the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute and a Research Fellow at the Queensland Government Health Sciences Centre.
He is the chair of the department of oral health at the Institute.
He said if you have any of these symptoms:It can happen to anyone, and you should get tested for it.
If you have symptoms, there is no need to go to the doctor, it will go away on its own.
But you should be aware of what your symptoms are, and take steps to prevent them.
Dr Whitheads said the problem was not as much about having the problem itself as it was about the fact that the problem has been identified.
“You need to be aware that your symptoms can be caused by a range of things, and these include, but are not limited to, the following factors:The presence of bacteriaIn the mouth or throatThere are a number of factors that are associated with the presence of microbes in the mouth.
They include:You need regular checks to make sure your mouth is cleanThe presence or absence of bacteria in your teethIt is important that you check that you are eating and drinking properlyThere is an abundance of good bacteria in the saliva of everyone who drinks a glass of water, and there is a greater likelihood of having a good oral microbiome.
But, Dr Whitheads stressed, that is not the same as having a healthy oral microbiome, and is not necessarily the same thing as a healthy mouth.
If there is any infection, there are two different things you should look out for.
First, you should know whether you have a urinary tract infection, and secondly, if you are having diarrhoea, you need to have a urine test.
Dr Whites said if your symptoms appear on their own, they can be easily treated, but if they have a pattern or progression, you must seek medical attention.
Dr Blackstock, a research fellow at the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare and a professor at the School and Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, said if there is anything unusual happening with your oral hygiene that you think may be related to your microbiome, you could test it for yourself.”
If you suspect there are some infections or a urinary infection, then it is important to get tested to see if you can see any signs of a bacterial infection or urinary infection.
If that is the case, then the best thing to do is get tested.
You may be able to tell by the color of the test, the pH of the urine, the amount of stool you have in the urine or your mouth and the consistency of the stool.
If it is a clear or yellow urine, then there may be bacteria.
If the urine is brown or blue, then you may have an infection.
“Dr Blackstocks findings are based on a sample taken from the mouth of more than 30,000 people who were aged between 18 and 74 years.
He said it showed that people with a high proportion of bacteria were more likely to have some kind of a urinary or bacterial infection.”
These findings suggest that people who have oral health needs are more likely than other people to have bacteria in their mouths,” Dr Blackstock said.
Dr Ian Whiteheads said a bacterial mouth abscess can be a sign of a potentially serious problem.”
Bacterial abscesses can be very serious and are very difficult to treat,” Dr Whiteheads told ABC News.”
They are caused by bacteria living in the oral cavity and they can lead to infection.
“They are extremely difficult to eradicate.”
Dr Vavarek said that while people with the bacteria were less likely to develop an abscess, they still had a significant risk of developing an infection.
Dr James Mazzoni, a lecturer in oral health and nutrition at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, said it was important to have good oral hygiene.
“There is no excuse for not getting tested for oral health concerns,” he said.
“We need to do all we can to protect our oral health.”
