Dental Bleaching Is It a Requirement or a Craze?

Dental Bleaching Is It a Requirement or a Craze?

How do your teeth become stained?
Teeth discoloration is generally caused by stain causing beverages. These include coffee, red wine, tea and some other hard drinks. Use of tobacco, excessive fluoride and dark colored berries may also cause staining of teeth.

Why do you need dental bleaching?
Our tooth is the hardest calcified substance, which mechanically helps us to break food particles into minute ones so that they are easily digestible by the body. They aid in our appearance. Hence, having white stain free teeth is a joy.

The concept of dental bleaching or teeth whitening
Dental bleaching or teeth whitening is a process of removing the stains from our teeth and to reveal them as milky white. There are 2 types of teeth whitening, whiten and non-whiten. Dental plaque, betel chewing, tobacco tar, drinking dark color liquids like coffee, tea are some reasons why our teeth get stained. The mineral structure of the tooth becomes phosphate deficient. The enamel layer gradually thins and gets perforated. Hence tooth whitening is required. 

The dentist removes the eccentric stains as well as intrinsic stains using hydrogen peroxide. Carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide is available as bleaching strips, bleaching pen and as bleaching gel for tooth whitening. Laser tooth whitening technology is also used for this purpose. Increases in the sensitivity of the teeth, irritation in the gums are some of the side effects in teeth whitening process. This procedure of teeth whitening must be essentially done under medical supervision. This is not a one time job and may require more sittings with the doctor depending on the amount of stain in the teeth as well as the whiteners required.

Bleaching or teeth whitening is not recommended for the following people:

  1. Children below the age of 16 should not undergo this procedure.
  2. Individuals with sensitive gums and teeth should consult a dentist prior to using teeth whitening.

Whitening Procedures

  1. Vital Whitening: It is performed on teeth that have live nerves. Here the gel is applied directly on the tooth surface.
  2. Non Vital Whitening: This procedure is applied if the patient has undergone root canal treatment.

Is dental bleaching a requirement or just a craze?
Dental bleaching should not become a craze or mania because unhealthy obsession for extremely white teeth will lead to body dysmorphic disorder. This is a mental disorder in which a person cannot stop thinking about one or more perceived defects in his or her appearance.

Teeth whitening should be done only when necessary. People who have unrealistic expectations with:

  1. dental bleaching should not opt for this procedure.
  2. Also, bleaching or teeth whitening is not recommended for the following people:
  3. Children below the age of 16 should not undergo this procedure.
  4. Individuals with sensitive gums and teeth should consult a dentist prior to using teeth whitening.

I am suffering from wisdom tooth pain from last 3 days. Please suggest some remedy?

I am suffering from wisdom tooth pain from last 3 days. Please suggest some remedy?
Wisdom teeth usually make their appearance between the ages of 17 and 21, though it's possible for them to push through earlier or later. Referred to as your "third molars, these four teeth begin to push through the skin like any other tooth, which can cause pain. However, wisdom teeth are much more likely to grow in at an incorrect angle – even sideways – causing impaction that can radiate this pain to the teeth in front of it.

You need to get the white patch evaluated at the earliest for you to rule out any major changes which can develop at a later stage. Depending on the site & size even biopsies are possible with minimum discomfort. Good luck sir!

You need to get scaling (cleaning) done so as to remove all the plaque and calculus, the gum bleeding, pus and bad breath would regress over a period of 10-15 days. Also do clean your tongue properly and use a good mouthwash as well.

Taking a large no. Of medications often leads to a dry mouth. Increase your fluid intake or ask your dentist about an artifical saliva product or chew sugarless gum after a meal to keep your mouth moist.

Hi. The condition you are referring to is understood by me as - nursing bottle caries. It occurs because of constant bottle feeding and not cleaning the teeth after the feed. This causes the teeth to undergo decay very fast. Clean the teeth of your child atleast with a wet cotton after every bottle feed. If possible, try to avoid bottle feed atleast reduce the number of times feeding with the bottle. It can definitely be treated. Visit your nearest dentist and get it done immediately to avoid complications of pain and infection.

What is the basic physiology behind shedding off of the milk teeth and coming of the adult dentition at the childhood?

What is the basic physiology behind shedding off of the milk teeth and coming of the adult dentition at the childhood?
We need more investigations (model study, full mouth & profile x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need fixed / removable braces. Requirements may depends on the age, complaint, duration of the treatment & affordability. Cost of cosmetic dentistry (braces) varies with dentist. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Toothaches can be due to decay, gum infection or sensitivity. Get your teeth x-rayed to determine the cause. Cavities can be filled with or without rct. Gum infection can be treated by scaling and polishing. For sensitivity, use desensitizing toothpaste twice daily. Regarding yellow teeth, everyone doesn't have pearl white teeth. You can go for bleaching.

Brushing technique

Brushing technique
Brush your teeth gently with little toothpaste (pea size toothpaste enough). Hard brushing abrades the protective layer of tooth (enamel). Tooth abrasion leads to decay and sensitivity in tooth.

My mother aged sixty has toothache in her broken teeth at the end of her jaw. Cold / hot water is creating problem while intake it. She wants her teeth to be removed. Kindly advice?

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Get an xray done of the tooth concerned.If she has blood pressure It has to be under control that is not over 150/90. If she has diabetes sugar should be in check pp not over 160. Any other serious ailments like coronary heart disease, cardiovascular diseases, renal / kidney disorder or liver disorders I suggest you get tooth extracted in a hospital with dental set up.Where if they have facilities they can rush you to emergency . A course of antibiotics to be taken 48 hrs prior the extraction.

BDS, MDS
Dentist, Secunderabad
Tooth pain could be due to various reasons, the most common being dental caries that forms a cavity within the tooth exposing the underlying nerve. Treating the tooth is the best option for which you need to consult a dentist and emergency treatment includes to run a course of antibiotics and pain killers. But not all pain killers work on tooth pain so please avoid self medication. You can consult me

From last 5 Months my tooth gum little swell up and it also shrink downward from teeth.
You have got infection in your gums which is why it's swollen and also receding from your teeth. The best course of treatment is to go to the dentist and get a scaling done. This will help eliminate your infection. Besides maintaining oral hygiene is of prime importance if you don't want your gum infection to recur.
