When she chews food to eat it is becoming gluey in the mouth. She is facing problem in eating from last few months. What to do?

MDS - Orthodontics
Dentist,
Hi chewing food becomes difficult when the amount of saliva in the mouth has reduced. This could be due to medications or due to radiotherapy. She could use artificial saliva which keeps the mouth moist.

I am having slight jaw pain in both sides of my and its shape is not consistent that it changes or enlarges when my face is stressed, its so over whelmi, why does jaw enlarges when there is stress?

MFDS RCPS (Glasgow), MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Hi going by your description, I am inclined to think you might have a habit of grinding your teeth, esp. In of stress. This has led to chronic inflammation of the jaw joints, resulting in the pain. Also, due to constant overuse, the jaw closing muscles might have become enlarged, and they enlarge further when in prolonged continuous use, when you are clenching your teeth while under stress. Suggest you try and notice if the clenching of teeth happens at such times. If it does, you need to make a conscious effort not to do so. Sometimes, it might be necessary to fabricate intra oral appliances to protect the teeth. The problem of jaw enlargement may get rectified if the habit is effectively broken. In any case, see an oral surgeon for assessment and necessary intervention.

Oral Health Complications During Pregnancy

Oral Health Complications During Pregnancy

Oral Health Complications During Pregnancy

Recent findings have reported that oral bacteria and their by-products can possibly pass the placental barrier keeping oral health at prime importance during pregnancy. An awareness related to oral health during pregnancy cannot be neglected or avoided in order to minimize the complications.

This article focuses on few points related to the necessity of oral health during pregnancy. 

Pregnancy comes with many responsibilities making expecting mothers more concerned about their health. However, many pregnant women may not be aware of oral health and its effect on the developing child. Negligence of oral health is quite common during pregnancy due to lack of alertness of oral hygiene and its effect on systemic health.

Moreover, pregnancy discomforts like frequent bouts of nausea, increased physical demands, weight gain or certain dental problems like pregnancy gingivitis or inflammation of gums may be dangerous to developing fetus.  

Risk of oral problems during pregnancy:-

Few common oral problems associated with pregnancy are as follows. 

Pregnancy Gingivitis: 

Hormonal changes during pregnancy leads to pregnancy gingivitis. It is a condition of bleeding gums, redness. Moreover inflammation, swelling and tenderness are also observed. Ignorance of such problems may lead to serious gum disease.  Frequent cleaning can avoid such dental issues. Progesterone levels are elevated during pregnancy which stimulates the production of prostaglandins and leads to inflammation of blood vessels in gums.

Tooth Decay:

Diet during pregnancy is of high importance. It is designed to nourish both mother and unborn baby. Diet rich in carbohydrates actually increases the risk of tooth decay. The morning sickness increases acid secretion in the mouth which is harmful to enamel. 

Pregnancy tumors: 

Overgrowth of tissue on gums in pregnant women are called as pregnancy tumors. They are noncancerous and generally observed in the second trimester of the gestation period. It is nothing but swollen gums between teeth. The bleeding and reddening of gums observed in such conditions.  

Periodontal disease and preterm birth:

Untreated gum disease or periodontal problems can development periodontitis characterized by inflammation and infection of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. 

This ultimately leads to loss of supporting material and finally the teeth themselves. 

A study result has revealed that there is a relation between preterm birth and presence of gum diseases in the pregnant women. The reason is not yet known. 

However, research study findings have evidence that oral bacteria or their byproducts can pass placental barrier. This initiate inflammatory response leading to preterm birth. 

Another correlation exists between the gum disease and the increased rate of pre-eclampsia, a condition of high blood pressure during pregnancy. The positive correlation suggests that gum disease may cause stress to the blood vessels of the mother, placenta and the fetus.

The basic periodontal therapies like oral hygiene instructions, scaling, root planing and prophylaxis can substantially decrease the level of prostaglandin responsible for inflammatory response. 

The regular treatment and follow-up in pregnant women can maintain good oral health and minimize the risk of preterm birth. 

Dental treatment during pregnancy: 

The dental procedures mostly include the use of X-rays and use of anesthesia. In the case of pregnancy, these procedures can be used with precaution. 

Therefore, before sitting on dental chair patient should declare her pregnancy to the physician. Untreated dental infections can harm fetus as well as the mother. 

The emergency situations request use of dental radiographs which can’t wait. The radiation of dental x-ray is generally very low and precaution is always taken for lowest radiation exposure. A leaded apron including collar, shields can be used to prevent abdominal exposure to the x-ray radiation. 

Use of dental X-ray is not at all contraindicated in pregnancy when used with precaution. 

The use of local anesthesia is also not contraindicated in the pregnancy. 

A clinical trial result showed that there is no harm in the use of local anesthetics during pregnancy. It is not linked with increased risk for major medical problems like cerebral palsy, cleft lip and heart defect in newborns. 

The medication prescribed during dental treatment mainly includes local anesthetics, analgesics, and antibiotics. Most of them can be used with safety precautions. Each drug has its own pregnancy category which should be considered during its use. 

The antibiotic like tetracycline can permanently cause discoloration of developing teeth.  

Prevention: 

Dentists can educate patients with following points to avoid problems associated with oral hygiene. 

  • The patient should declare the pregnancy to  the Dentist 
  • Follow routine oral checkup. 
  • Undergo all elective and emergency procedures. 
  • Follow good oral hygiene practice ask for a better toothpaste.
  • In the case of morning sickness avoid sweets and snacks which increase the risk of tooth decay. 
  • Have healthy and balanced diet. 

Awareness of oral health during pregnancy is a must to avoid complications.

I am 22 years old. I am having teeth pain and some teeth are yellow in colour inner side of the teeth. How can overcome this.

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 for this.

Good evening - there is only one way to help you - you require a good dental check up - which should be followed by a good and careful oral prophylaxis (cleaning/ scaling) and then efficiently maintaining good oral hygiene by brushing twice daily - after breakfast and after dinner. If you can do warmslaine mouthrinses - 4 to 5 times a day it would add to your relief.

Hi sir, i am fond of eating pan daily at night, I wanted to get rid of this habbit, can you please suggest tooth whitener thanx.

BDS
Dentist, Delhi
You need to discontinue your habit. Teeth whitening will not work if you keep on with your habit. The whitened teeth will discolor eventually. You need to get your teeth cleaned (scaling) and polished. After that if you still feel of getting your teeth more white you can go with bleaching (teeth whitening. Whitener toothpastes donot work and grind your tooth surfaces those are all a marketing gimmick. Only a dentist can get your teeth white properly.

That's calcified plaque also called as calculus in medical terms. Calculus cannot be cleaned by tooth brush. It needs professional cleaning (complete ultrasonic scaling) to be done for removal.

You can get bleaching done for once for removal of your yellowish teeth. This help brighten the teeth. Toothpastes won't help much.
