Is it More Important to Brush Your Teeth in the Night Than in the Morning?

Why it's more important to brush your teeth in the night than in the morning

Most people wake up every morning and stumble to wash their teeth first thing. Do you believe that brushing your teeth in the morning is sufficient to keep your mouth healthy?

While it is important to brush your teeth in the morning for good oral hygiene, what goes on in your mouth all night is even more important. Brushing your teeth once a day is barely enough to maintain perfect oral hygiene. By brushing twice a day you can make the difference.

Do you know why it can be important to brush at night since you are only about to sleep?

Here are a few things that brushing before bed does.

1. Reduces acid build up

Everyone has acid being constantly produced in their mouths. The saliva secreted contains calcium which neutralizes the acid being built up. At night the saliva secretion slows down which allows the acids to get accumulated. The acids keep corroding the teeth all night. When you brush your teeth, the fluoride present in the toothpaste stimulates saliva secretion. So by brushing before bed you ensure that the saliva secretion does not fall drastically. In the process you prevent your teeth from getting corroded.

2. Reduces bacterial multiplication

The saliva in our mouth not only neutralizes the acid it reduces bacteria from multiplying as well. During the reduced saliva production, as you sleep, the bacteria in your mouth multiply manifold and attack your teeth and gums. This is why keeping your saliva secretion regular by brushing before bed is of utmost importance.

3. Reduces the decay of food particles

After you have your dinner just rinsing your mouth is not enough. Tiny food particles that get stuck in your teeth rot overnight. It is best to go to bed with a clean mouth rather than a mouth with tiny decaying food particles.

No matter how much of a task it might seem like, brushing at night is as important, if not more important, than brushing in the morning.

My mouth smelling.  I also cleaned tooth but no give positive result. What to do? Please help me.
Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. 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.

Exercise for healthier gums as well

Exercise for healthier gums as well
You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

Hello You need to visit. Dentist first of all. They will take an x ray and tell you whether you really need root canal treatment or just simple filling. If your tooth needs root canal treatment then also nothing to worry because the dentist will anesthize that area and it wont hurt plus they will prescribe you painkillers and antibiotics. Go ahead and get your treatment done.

Fix Teeth In 5 Days- Basal Implants

Fix Teeth In 5 Days- Basal Implants


 


 

Before teeth removal

After implant placement

(KOS, BCS & BOI Basal Implants)
(say good bye to bone grafting, sinus lifts, and nerve repositioning)

For all queries regarding Dental Implants Call +918588097530  or email to dr.amanahuja@yahoo.com

Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacing teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth. Moreover the facial contours are also preserved. With dental implants, the person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything.

There are different protocols/techniques for Dental implant treatment. Cosmodent Implant team believes only in scientifically proven protocols. The proven Branemark Protocol is a two stage dental implant treatment which requires 3 to 6 months with 2-3 sittings. Patients undergoing such treatment have to wait for a longer time before they can enjoy the benefits of better appearance, chewing, speech and their self confidence.

What is Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5days protocol?

Permanent-fixed teeth-in 5-days protocol is the in thing in dental implant treatment today. As the name says, every patient receives fixed permanent ceramic teeth in exactly 5 days from the day of implant placement. The most conservative (flapless) surgical technique combined with an in-house dental laboratory can deliver fixed teeth in 5 days.

With Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5-days protocol we can replace a single tooth, several teeth, or a full mouth of teeth, upper or lower, with remarkable comfort, predictability and aesthetics.

Permanent-fixed-teeth-in-5 days, How is it done?

The Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5 days protocol is performed in a single phase. It includes,

– Any tooth extraction, as indicated

– Implant placement, as planned

– Custom made CAD-CAM (designed ‘n’ milled) permanent prosthesis (teeth) fixed on Implants.

Day 1

On the first visit, the implant team clinically examines the patient, followed by necessary OPG taken for preliminary assessment. A 3D CBCT Scan (COSMODENT has an in-house OPG facility) if required, will be performed for precision planning. A virtual placement of implants will be demonstrated to the patient on the 3D CBCT SCAN, before finalizing the treatment plan. As a part of the treatment planning, the technique, cost factor and different fixed teeth options will be explained to the patient.

Day 2/3

The teeth are extracted and the basal implants are also placed during the same surgical visit. Impressions are taken for permanent ceramic teeth.

Day4/5

The permanent ceramic teeth are custom prepared and fixed within 5 days.

Thus the timeline for Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5 days is completed within one trip. At Cosmodent, we place 8 to 10 implants to restore the upper jaw and 6 to 8 implants for the lower jaw. The technique includes a combination of compression implants, basal implants and pterygoid implants. With this combination, every patient receives a full set of fixed teeth, without any bone graft procedure, sinus lift or nerve repositioning, that too with a lifetime warranty.

With these 8 to 10 basal implants, a full set of permanent ceramic teeth are fixed. A full set means the patient gets a total of 14 teeth on each arch, including the 2nd molars. The fabrication of permanent teeth takes approximately 4 to 5 days in our hi-tech dental lab. These permanent solutions are exclusively customized for you using CAD-CAM precision, along with the manual artistry and dexterity of skilled technicians. You have varied options to choose from such as metal ceramics, metal free Zirconium or titanium based crown and bridges.

Why is Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5 days protocol so successful at Cosmodent?

  • Vast experience of the multispecialty implant team, close to 2 decades, with thousands of implants placed, a big percentage of which includes immediate loading implants.

  • Constant collaborations with leaders in immediate loading implants, Ihde Dental Switzerland and their associates. COSMODENT has standardized the rehabilitation of edentulous jaws, using this wonderful technique which is based on basal implants and immediate loading implants.

  • With an in-house X-Ray, OPG, every implant planning and placement is done with ultimate precision. Hi-tech CAD-CAM supported, dental laboratory with 20 versatile and artistic dental technicians, in team with 2 high profile Prosthodontists (tooth replacement specialists) make sure you get the most natural looking, functional teeth in just 5 days time.

  • It means that implant treatments are done with high standards of sterilization and state-of-the-art equipments.

  • Even though every practitioner claims painless/ stress less placement of implants, we believe that full mouth implant placement needs more attention as far as the stress factor is concerned. To overcome this issue, the implant centre is equipped with conscious sedation machines, general anesthesia facility and a senior anesthetist on call.

  • The implant centre even has inpatient facilities, if you prefer round the clock attention and surely some savings on your accommodation.

Advantages of Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5 days protocol using KOS, BCS, BOI implants.

  • The BCS implants can be placed immediately after extraction.

  • KOS, BCS and BOI Implants are designed to be immediately loaded. That means permanent teeth (not removable dentures) can be fixed in 5 days.

  • This implant system heals faster, when they are loaded immediately, so no waiting for 3-6 months, for Osseo integration.

  • As these are single piece implants, so no screw loosening, less chance of peri implantitis.

  • These implants can be placed flapless (except BOI, which needs a gum incision and suturing) so more patient comfort and faster healing assured.

  • BCS and BOI (basal) implants are smooth surface implants. The advantages of smooth surface implants are-more resistant to infections-less maintenance needed-less bone resorption around implants-less risk of periimplantitis…(which is a major reason for implant failure )

  • This protocol can be performed in controlled diabetic patients, smokers and patients with severe gum disease with equal success.

  • In a single visit….both extraction and implant can be completed. So, a single surgical visit is required, compared to a two-staged implant protocol, thus avoiding multiple surgeries.

  • These implants are from highly reputed IDHE DENTAL, a SWISS company which is known for its perfection.

  • All patients can enjoy the benefits of permanent fixed bridges on implants within 5 days.

  • This improvised technique is equally reliable as the traditional techniques.

  • This protocol can often be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or a full mouth of teeth, upper or lower, with remarkable comfort, predictability and aesthetics.

  • The Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5 days protocol is completed in a single trip.

Comparison of different implant treatment techniques at Cosmodent.

  • Versatility of the implant team is very crucial in implant treatment planning and execution.

  • No single implant procedure is ideal for every clinical situation. Many of the known implant practitioners perform only a single technique for every situation, because they are only familiar to that one technique. They not only promote that technique, they even put down other modalities. This is lack of expertise and knowledge.

  • No technique is superior to any other technique. The fact is that, different techniques and approaches are required for different clinical situations, for the ultimate success of implant.

Hi. Black colour on teeth could be due to depositions over a period orelse due to tooth decay. Carefully clinical examination has to be done to rule out. If it's deposits then you might need scaling and of its decay then you need to get it removed by dentist followed by fillings.

I had problem after rct & crown fitting, sometimes there is pain on that teeth area.
There is a chance that the tooth in which rct has been done is slight tender for few days but if the pain persists then probably the infection hasn't gone totally, you need to bring this to your dentist's knowledge and let him assess and take next step.
