Yellow plaque is due to food getting trapped in the tooth crevices and later getting calcified. It can be removed and prevented by regular rinsing after meals. For faster result you can use a mouthwash and an effective toothpaste.

All About Different Types of Gum Disease

All About Different Types of Gum Disease

Gum disease begins with the growth of bacteria in your mouth and it may end with loss of teeth. Thus, the severity of gum disease or periodontitis should not be underestimated. Tooth loss mainly happens due to the destruction of the tissue which surrounds the teeth. 

Types of gum disease:

  1. Gingivitis: Gingivitis is basically the first stage of periodontitis. It causes bleeding from the gums and also causes immense pain in the teeth.
  2. Periodontitis: In periodontitis, the gum and teeth separate. A gap is formed between the two which may cause debris to accumulate in the space and cause other infections.

Causes of gum disease:
The exact cause of gum disease is not known but here are some of the possible causes:

  1. Hormonal changes: Hormonal changes during pregnancy, menopause and puberty are just some times the gums become more sensitive and gingivitis develops.
  2. Illnesses: Cancer, HIV, diabetes and other illnesses may cause problems with the immune system and damage the gums. This is an example of how gingivitis is caused as a complication of other disorders.
  3. Bad habits: Smoking causes gum disease as you may already know.
  4. Poor oral hygiene: Not brushing and flossing may lead to accumulation of food materials in the mouth causing gum diseases.
  5. Family history: Family history is also a major contributing factor to what may cause gum disease.

Treatment:
The treatment prescribed for gum disease depends how deep it is set and whether it is a case of gingivitis or periodontitis. Here are the possible treatments for gum disease:

  1. Professional dental cleaning: This is the most common treatment used in the early stages of gum disease. In fact, dental cleanings are usually used to prevent it and are used as soon as tartar and plaque buildup. 
  2. Scaling and root planing: This is also a type of cleaning except that it needs to be done under a local anesthetic as there is a certain degree of pain involved in the procedure.
  3. Surgery: Surgery is also sometimes used to remove the infected pockets and put the gums back in their original place.

The treatment will depend upon the stage of pyorrhoea. But first you get the teeth cleaned thoroughly from your dentist. Follow all the things like brushing twice, flossing etc have a good healthy diet. Eat fruits rich in vitamin c like orange sweet lime etc advanced treatments like flap surgery may be needed that would be decided by the dentist.

If the mobility is not much, just scaling and polishing with little maintenance will retain the teeth. If mobility is enough, go for extraction n than capping.

For how much time bridge replacement for 3 teeth last (the cheaper ones around 1500 per teeth).

For how much time bridge replacement for 3 teeth last (the cheaper ones around 1500 per teeth).
Hi lybrate-user How long a bridge lasts depends upon what sort of a bridge it is, and how it is used and maintained. The most frequent cause of bridges failing are 1. Ceramic chipping off the metal coping in case of metal-ceramic bridges. This might happen after several years, but may happen earlier if your diet includes lot of tough, chewy, sticky foods, or, if you have a habit of grinding your teeth. 2. Decay or gum disease affecting the adjacent supporting teeth of the bridge necessitating additional treatment of those teeth, possibly extraction, and replacement of a new bridge, possibly involving more teeth than the original one. This happens usually due to poor home care, failure to maintain regular dental check ups, but the very nature of the bridge also might make it more difficult to keep the area clean, predisposing to food lodgement and damage. Generally, given good home care, regular dental check ups, a bridge should last 10 to 15 years.

My teeth are yellow in colour. And also some black spots. What I have to do to remove yellowish on my teeth?

My teeth are yellow in colour. And also some black spots. What I have to do to remove yellowish on my teeth?
Hi lybrate-user. Yellowish teeth with black spots can be because of two reasons. Because I hav not seen your case clinically, I will tell you treatment for both. 1. First it may be because of deposits and stains on your teeth. Treatment for this is scaling. Very normal procedure for cleaning your teeth and gums. 2. Second, you might be suffering from dental fluorosis. For this you need to visit a good dentist and get the treatment procedure to get a beautiful white smile. Thank you.

Usually dentists give plain water to wash your mouth to rinse after drilling cavities. But my dentist gives me green or blue coloured water to rinse. Can you tell me what is that blue or green coloured water and why is that used instead of plain water.

Dear Lybrate user, Mouthrinses are used in dentistry for a number of reasons: to freshen breath, to prevent or control tooth decay, to reduce plaque formation on teeth and gums, to prevent or reduce gingivitis, or to deliver a combination of these effects. It is quite common for your dentist to give you blue or green colored water to rinse your mouth before the treatment procedure is started. A pre-procedural mouthwash serves an important function in infection control as numerous studies have demonstrated that mouthrinsing with an antimicrobial mouthwash can greatly reduce the number of viable microorganisms in the dental office which are usually spread during drilling cavities and scaling with ultrasonic scalars.

Flossing of Teeth

MDS - Periodontics, Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Chandigarh
Flossing of Teeth

Flossing is as important as brushing on a daily basis. Taking the floss all the way down to the point where the teeth and gums meet is the appropriate way of doing it.
