The Best and Worst Crunchy Foods for Your Teeth

The Best and Worst Crunchy Foods for Your Teeth

The mere thought of biting into something crunchy brings a refreshing thought. However, realize that crunchy things are not always good for general health and oral health. While some crunchy foods can be very good for the teeth, others can do a great deal of harm.

Given that crunchy foods are something more popular with kids, they should be taught the good and bad about crunchy foods. That does not mean they are banned from eating any bad crunchy food. There are ways to reduce the effects of eating a bad crunchy food and the children should be taught those early on.

Let us look at the bad crunchy foods first. A packet of chips or crackers may sound extremely exciting for the kid, but they are very damaging to the teeth. Pieces of these stick to the teeth and in-between the teeth, thereby attracting germs and causing decay.

Candies are the next lot. They contain a great amount of sugar that does not leave the mouth after the candy is swallowed. The sugar stays long after the candy is out of the mouth and continues to cause damage.

In both these cases, the child should not be told not to eat. The trick is to teach them that while they can eat these, it should immediately be followed by a brushing session or a thorough rinse if brushing is not possible. Get them into the habit of a thorough rinse after each meal and no crunchy food can produce the same damage.

Good Crunchy Foods: The vegetables and fruits are undoubtedly the best crunchy foods to bite into. Not only are they good for overall health with their rich fiber content and vitamins, they also have a great benefit for the oral health. Any fruit from apple to a pear induces salivary glands and increases the cleansing effect of the saliva. The natural fibers also produce the same effect as does brushing for a couple of minutes. The teeth surfaces are freed of plaque and bacteria, thereby reducing the chances of tooth decay. Carrots and celery also contain vitamin A, which is good for healthy tooth structure. They also are rich in water and provide good amount of water for the body. Another good crunchy food is popcorn, which not just is light on the stomach, but also has a good amount of fiber.

The next time you need something crunchy to bite on, take a decision. What you might munch into can have a lot of effect both on your overall health and your teeth. Also, watch your children and teach them how to nullify the bad effects.

I have uneven teeth andi want to make it even, so please give the solution how can I fix this problem and how much will it cost?

What is your age? for mal aligned teeth there are many treatment options today. This depends on the case severity, patients requirements, duration of the treatment etc. The very basic treatment is metal brackets. If you don't want metal there is ceramic braces. Both work same with only difference in looks. Duration in these treatment varies from 1 year to 2 average. You need to visit every month for activation. Other is clearpath aligners which are invisible, take lesser time lesser visits and you can follow a virtual treatment where you can see your results even before the completion of the treatment. You can write to me privately for their charges. Metal braces are most economical. You can send me your pictures for proper treatment plan.

Common Dental Problems During Pregnancy

Common Dental Problems During Pregnancy

Some women have dental problems such as gum disease and tooth decay, during pregnancy. The increase of hormones during pregnancy can affect the response of the body to plaque, which is the layer of germs on the teeth.

It is not true that the teeth are automatically damaged due to pregnancy. In case the calcium intake of the mother during pregnancy is not enough, the bones provide the growing baby with the calcium that it needs. When the breastfeeding is stopped, the calcium is replenished quickly. Nonetheless, the high demands of pregnancy can prompt specific dental issues in a few females. With professional help and appropriate cleanliness at home from your dental specialist, your teeth ought to stay healthy during pregnancy.

It is possible that a dental disease might affect a developing baby. Premature births have a risk of developing health problems such as cerebral palsy and issues with hearing and eyesight. Research has shown that around 20% of all premature births might be caused due to periodontal disease. It is an infection of the gums which is chronic in nature. The risk of premature birth can be reduced by providing the expectant mother with the required dental treatment.

Some of the common causes of dental problems which occur during pregnancy include:

1. Gum Problems: Women become vulnerable to gum problems due to hormones which are associated with pregnancy. These include gingivitis, pyogenic granuloma or pregnancy epulis and untreated or undiagnosed periodontal disease.

2. Vomiting: The ring of muscles which are used for keeping the food inside the stomach are softened due to vomiting. Vomiting or gastric reflux, which is associated with morning sickness, causes the teeth to be coated with strong acids.

3. Retching: Provocation of retching is caused in pregnant women while they brush their teeth, especially the molars. Not brushing the teeth regularly can cause tooth decay.

Things to remember:

  • The demands of pregnancy can lead to particular dental problems in some women.
  • You are less likely to have dental problems during pregnancy if you already have good oral hygiene habits.
  • With proper dental hygiene at home and professional help from your dentist, your teeth should stay healthy during pregnancy.

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.

I am troubled often by mouth ulcers. Are there simple remedies for this? I use a pain relieving gel and go on a course of folic acid and becosules and they come under control.

MDS - Oral Medicine and Radiology, BDS
Dentist, Ahmedabad
Hi, the problem you have described is suggestive of recurrent aphthous ulcers. Once ulcers are formed, they will stay for 5 to 10 days and heal by itself. For pain and burning over the ulcers, you can apply honey as a home remedy. Pain receiving gels and multivitamins like becosules and folic acid also help. These ulcers are mainly related with constipation, inefficient sleep, stress, vitamin deficiency and many more. If you get ulcers more then one time in a month for more than a year, then it's time to visit an oral medicine specialist and get the condition treated.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks.

My teeth are almost yellow any toothpaste or medicine for making it clean and white.
You may try snowdent toothpaste. It creates mild bleaching effect to whiten your teeth. Or you may make fresh paste by mixing baking soda and water, put it on your tooth brush and brush your teeth (not more that 2 minutes). This home remedy may help you to whiten your teeth. If still doesn't help you then ask your dentist about professional bleaching of teeth.

How much time braces takes to fill the gap between the front teeth. And what it costs.

Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
How much time braces takes to fill the gap between the front teeth. And what it costs.
On an average the complete braces treatment (upper and lower teeth) takes around 18 to 30 months. But if it's only front teeth closure then may take around 6 months to a year, depending upon the gaps. The cost will vary according to the dr, the area, types of braces etc.

Dear lybrate-user, for better alignment of teeth, we need to create some space in the jaw towards which the teeth will move over the course of treatment. If you go ahead without extraction, the existing teeth in your jaw will become crowded and overlap one another due to lack of space. Hence, such extractions are necessary during most orthodontic treatments (braces). Also, unlike what was traditionally believed, these extractions do not adversely affect your eyesight or any other part of your body. These notions are totally mythical and have no scientific basis. Please go ahead.

The toothache you are suffering from may be due to a variety of causes, the most common being: 1. Tooth decay 2. Tooth fracture 3. A damaged filling 4. Infected gums the most common cause is a long-standing cavity or tooth decay, which usually requires a root canal treatment (rct). The same treatment applies to a tooth fracture as well. In case of a damaged filling, there may be two possibilities: either the filling can be removed and replaced with a new one after applying a soothing base material; or if the damaged filling is placed deep near the nerves of the tooth, it may require an rct. Infected gums usually are treated with deep cleaning/scaling after which there is permanent relief from pain. Send across images of your aching tooth/teeth, and looking at them will help me be in a better position to solve your problem. I will also be able to check the order/alignment of your teeth. Hoe that helps.
