I am suffering from pain of wisdom teeth. Please help me.

BDS
Dentist,
if your wisdom tooth is trying to erupt in a crooked position the only remedy to that is getting the wisdom tooth removed. Till you can visit your dentist for proper treatment of the same you can take a over the counter pain killer like paracetamol (if you are not allergic to it) and do some warm saline rinses.

Black spot can be calculus or decay. If it's calculus, go for scaling and polishing. If its decay, get it filled with appropriate material. This can't be treated at home.

Can Chocolates Cause Tooth Decay?

MDS, BDS, Sedation(Inhalation) Specialist
Dentist, Hyderabad
Can Chocolates Cause Tooth Decay?

One warning that most children would have heard from their parent or other elders is, 'don’t eat chocolates, your teeth will get decayed'. And, most children grow up believing this to be true. As this is a global statement thus, more and more research has been done to clarify this. (Learn more to maintain Oral Health in Children)

Let us understand in brief the basic process of tooth decay. The tooth is made of mineralized layer called the enamel that is covered constantly with saliva. There are thousands of bacteria in the mouth. Food substances gradually deposit on the teeth and form plaque (learn more about plaque problem). This combination of a moist environment and bacteria on a mineralized structure produces the ideal environment for bacteria to act and produce acids which break down the minerals in the enamel. This is the first step in the origin of decay. The acid produced attracts more bacteria which further leads to worsening of the decay.

Some of the facts correlating chocolates and tooth decay are as follows:

  1. Chocolates in particular do not cause tooth decay. Very often, children tend to eat chocolates in between their meals and do not rinse or brush. This leads to greater level of plaque formation, thereby, starting off the process of decay. Not just chocolates any sticky foods can lead to tooth decay. What needs to be enforced is a habit to brush or at the least rinse thoroughly after eating a chocolate bar. In fact, this could be used as a reward, and it can help food deposits formed from other foods also to be washed away. The child gets to eat a chocolate, and good oral hygiene is reinforced too!
  2. Eating a chocolate before the actual meal is a way to indulge. What happens is that there is no sticky residue on the teeth if eaten this way. The child gets to enjoy chocolate at the same time keeping the teeth away from decay.
  3. Another habit is to make sure that the child eats all of chocolate at one shot than to keep nibbling at it for hours. That way, the chocolate can be managed with one round of brushing or rinsing
  4. it is advisable to give the child their share of chocolate at night, as most kids brush teeth before going to bed.
  5. Dark chocolates contain a good amount of antioxidants and are believed to reduce the incidence of plaque formation and therefore, they counter the effect of acids produced by the bacteria.

So, the next time someone talks about chocolates causing all the tooth decay, tell them it is not that bad, you can have your chocolate and eat it too!!

The Chemistry between Calcium and Teeth

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Mohali
The Chemistry between Calcium and Teeth

Calcium phosphate is the main component of the tooth enamel so any deficiency in calcium can cause damage to the enamel. Calcium is not only required for having healthy teeth but also healthy bones and heart.

Healthy teeth are a sign of good overall health and wellbeing. There are many factors that impact the health of the teeth such as improper diet, smoking, and sugar.

Benefits of calcium for teeth

  • Calcium reduces the chances of losing a teeth
  • It reduces chances of cavities
  • Calcium, when combined with a proper nutritious diet, helps in increasing the longevity of the teeth
  • Calcium can reduce chances of gum disease
  • Calcium along with other minerals also help in improving blood supply around the teeth area
  • A calcium compound, amorphous calcium phosphate helps in fluoride absorption in the tooth enamel
  • It limits loss of mass in the jawbone
  • Calcium also fortifies the bones around the jaw to reduce bone problems such as loss of bone structure as one gets older
  • It helps in protecting the teeth from acidic components that cause tooth decay

To have healthy teeth, one needs to have a balanced diet that meets the regular calcium requirements besides following a healthy lifestyle.

'Consult'.

Hi bleeding during brushing is the sign of gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque deposition. Get it removed by scaling. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash. You can use crest toothpaste to control the plaque.

It is due to mumps parotitis. Conservative, supportive medical care is indicated for patients with mumps. No antiviral agent is indicated for treatment of this viral illness, as mumps is a self-limited disease. Encouraging oral fluid intake is essential, as maintenance of adequate hydration and alimentation of patients is important. Refrain from acidic foods and liquids as they may cause swallowing difficulty, as well as gastric irritation. Prescribe analgesics (acetaminophen, ibuprofen) for headaches or discomfort due to parotitis. Topical application of warm or cold packs to the swollen parotid area may soothe the region. Stronger analgesics may be required for patients with orchitis. Bed rest, scrotal support, and ice packs are recommended.

I am going in for silver filling. How can it affect my oral health further?

PDCR, BDS
Dentist,
Mr. aditya silver filling was the best of old days...but now with changing concepts u should prefer tooth coloured restorations... Some disadvantages of silver filling are: 1. It contains mercury which is poison for our body. 2. It bonds to tooth mechanically that means v have to give a proper shape to the cavity for silver filling which leads to more loss of your healthy tooth structure.. 3. As silver alloy is metal, and our oral cavity contains saliva so it can lead to rusting in filling leading to deterioration of filling margin which furthur leads to caries below filling, known as secondary caries. 4. Discoloration of tooth Now a days there are very gud materials available for filling u shud go with glass ionomer cement or composite filling.

My baby is two months old. Her tongue and inside gums has become white. She is refusing to take milk. Please advise.

My baby is two months old. Her tongue and inside gums has become white. She is refusing to take milk. Please advise.
White deposit in mouth is usually fungal infection. Apply or just pour 2 to 3 drops of candid mouth paint over the tounge 4 to 5 times in a day. After response, it may be continued 3 times in a day for 1 to 2 monts. Do not scrap or scratch white deposit. If no response in 3 to 4 days, consult pediateician. In case, if she is refusing feed which I suppose she is not able to suckle instead of refusing, give expressed breast milk with spoon for proper nutrition. If baby is not able to swallow, consult immiditely. Exclussive breast milk is strongly advisible up to 6 monts of age.

Dental care should begin as soon as a child’s first tooth appears, usually around six months. “Teeth can be wiped with a clean, damp cloth or a very soft brush. At about age 2, you can let kids try brushing for themselves -- although it’s important to supervise.”
