    How do your teeth become stained?
    Teeth discoloration is generally caused by stain causing beverages. These include coffee, red wine, tea and some other hard drinks. Use of tobacco, excessive fluoride and dark colored berries may also cause staining of teeth.

    Why do you need dental bleaching?
    Our tooth is the hardest calcified substance, which mechanically helps us to break food particles into minute ones so that they are easily digestible by the body. They aid in our appearance. Hence, having white stain free teeth is a joy.

    The concept of dental bleaching or teeth whitening
    Dental bleaching or teeth whitening is a process of removing the stains from our teeth and to reveal them as milky white. There are 2 types of teeth whitening, whiten and non-whiten. Dental plaque, betel chewing, tobacco tar, drinking dark color liquids like coffee, tea are some reasons why our teeth get stained. The mineral structure of the tooth becomes phosphate deficient. The enamel layer gradually thins and gets perforated. Hence tooth whitening is required.

    The dentist removes the eccentric stains as well as intrinsic stains using hydrogen peroxide. Carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide is available as bleaching strips, bleaching pen and as bleaching gel for tooth whitening. Laser tooth whitening technology is also used for this purpose. Increases in the sensitivity of the teeth, irritation in the gums are some of the side effects in teeth whitening process. This procedure of teeth whitening must be essentially done under medical supervision. This is not a one time job and may require more sittings with the doctor depending on the amount of stain in the teeth as well as the whiteners required.

    Bleaching or teeth whitening is not recommended for the following people:
    Children below the age of 16 should not undergo this procedure.
    Individuals with sensitive gums and teeth should consult a dentist prior to using teeth whitening.

    Whitening Procedures
    Vital Whitening: It is performed on teeth that have live nerves. Here the gel is applied directly on the tooth surface.
    Non Vital Whitening: This procedure is applied if the patient has undergone root canal treatment.

    Is dental bleaching a requirement or just a craze?
    Dental bleaching should not become a craze or mania because unhealthy obsession for extremely white teeth will lead to body dysmorphic disorder. This is a mental disorder in which a person cannot stop thinking about one or more perceived defects in his or her appearance.
    Teeth whitening should be done only when necessary. People who have unrealistic expectations with:
    1. dental bleaching should not opt for this procedure.
    2. Also, bleaching or teeth whitening is not recommended for the following people:
    3. Children below the age of 16 should not undergo this procedure.
    4. Individuals with sensitive gums and teeth should consult a dentist prior to using teeth whitening.

    Our teeth are most definitely, vital for our living. Our everyday choices, pertaining to our lifestyle would call for changes, adjustments and lots of sacrifices without them. Though, a number of replacement options are available for the people with missing teeth, the most recommended are dental implants. Ask why?

    They are simply the ideal solution due to their look and feel, which is similar to the natural teeth.

    What happens if replacement is not considered?
    To prevent the nasty repercussions from occurring, it is necessary that any missing teeth are replaced in time. Though, the symptoms of problems due to missing teeth only appear to be superficial in the early stages, the long term effects may certainly prove to be quite severe.

    Some of the short term consequences of missing teeth are as follows
    People with missing teeth tend to feel self-conscious or even embarrassed at times, while they talk to others or smile.
    Problem in speech is a common issue that may arise due to tooth loss.
    When teeth are missing, people find it difficult to consume some certain food types. These may include ones which contain some essential nutrients, hence leading to possible malnutrition.
    Increased wear or stress can also lead to the weakening of the teeth that are remaining.
    People with tooth loss find it difficult to chew the food properly.
    When teeth are missing, there is movement of the teeth that remain, to compensate for the gap places created. This leads to ugly looking gap teeth.

    Though, these were the short term issues, the major consequence of not getting any lost teeth replaced is the gradual bone loss. Our teeth are firmly embedded in the jaw bone. Chewing and biting are the constant uses, which are required by the jaw bone to remain hale and hearty as well as active. You may believe it or not, be it at the beginning or at the end; the major focus is not on the teeth, but on the bones.

    Maintaining form as well as density of the bone requires regular stimulation, coming from the teeth, as mentioned above. The contact with teeth causes small stresses, which the periodontal ligament transmits to the bone and prompts its continual rebuilding as well as remodelling. When any missing teeth are not replaced, it leads to the gradual deterioration in the jaw bones, over time. This not only results in facial shape changes but also will eventually burn a huge hole in your pockets, as increased complications will also lead to increased costs required for rectifying the problems.

    So, now it's up to you. Choose healthy and wise. Go for teeth replacement at the earliest, if and when, need arises.

    Importance of oral hygiene pre-pregnancy and for expecting mothers

    Maintaining proper oral health is very essential for everyone but it becomes more important for women who are planning to conceive or are pregnant. Studies reveal that if a woman is suffering from gum disease, the chances of the baby being born prematurely or having inadequate weight increase.

    Moreover, the alteration in the levels of the hormone in the body caused due to pregnancy might also trigger gum disease and a condition known as pregnancy gingivitis, which makes taking care of oral hygiene mandatory for expecting mothers.

    How can you ensure proper oral hygiene before conceiving?
    Visiting a dentist before conceiving is necessary to diagnose and treat any issues related to oral health, so that it doesn't affect the health of the baby in any way. During this visit, you can opt for professional cleaning of your teeth and proper scrutiny of your gum tissue to detect any oral health issues, which might influence your pregnancy.

    How can you maintain proper oral health during pregnancy?
    You can take the following measures to ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy during pregnancy.

    - Visit your dentist regularly
    Pregnancy should not keep you from going for regular dental checkups. The dentist can conduct the requisite periodontal exams and provide you instructions for maintaining healthy gums and teeth during this period.

    - Inform your dentist about the drugs you are consuming
    Letting your dentist know about all the medications you are consuming and their dosages is advisable so that he/she can accordingly design your dental treatment plan.

    -Don't avoid dental X-rays
    If you need a dental X-ray, you can opt for it even while you are pregnant. Informing your dentist about your pregnancy will ensure that, he/she takes extra measures for your and the baby's safety by protecting your thyroid gland and abdomen from the rays.

    - Consider morning sickness while choosing your toothpaste
    Morning sickness often hinders with the normal process of brushing due to the taste of the toothpaste. In this case, asking your dentist to recommend a suitable brand for you would be the right thing to do.

    - Ensure that you follow a healthy diet
    Following a diet which contains a minimum amount of sugary snacks and more dairy products like yogurt and cheese is recommended for expecting mothers. This not only decreases the risks of tooth decay but also ensures proper development of the baby's gums, bones, and teeth.
