Ultrasonic Scaling of Teeth

Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research, BDS
Dentist, Kolkata
Ultrasonic Scaling of Teeth
Sometimes patients are worried whether ultrasonic scaling makes the teeth more mobile. In reality it is just the opposite. During and immediate post scaling patients may find spaces between their teeth but that is because the calculus and other foreign particles have been dislodged to clean the gum area. But very good healthy gum tissues grow back to fill up the spaces making your teeth and gums stronger and better.

Tooth Sensitivity: Causes and Management

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Jaipur
Tooth Sensitivity: Causes and Management

Dental problems can be very painful and take the smile off your face completely. Those who have experienced sensitivity would vouch for it. It just will not allow you to enjoy the hot coffee or a favourite sweet or a cold smoothie.  The pain that shoots down the tooth after any of these would leave the person shuddering.

The tooth has 3 layers, from the outside in these are the enamel, the dentin and the pulp.  The outermost enamel is mineralized and the hardest structure in the body. The next layer, dentin, has fine tubules and when the enamel is worn off exposing the dentin, sensitivity sets in. The enamel is thinner in some portions of the tooth like the neck and the roots, therefore sensitivity onset is quicker in these areas.

Some of the common reasons for sensitivity are listed below:

  1. Tooth decay:  As caries progresses from enamel to dentin, sensitivity sets in, especially to hot and cold foods.
  2. Wear and tear:  Excessive brushing of teeth can lead to wearing of teeth, especially near the neck areas, leading to loss of enamel and resulting in sensitivity.
  3. Dental damage:  Chipped or broken tooth can lead to sensitivity.
  4. Gingival disease: This leads to loss of gum cover over the tooth, leading to exposure of dentin and therefore sensitivity.
  5. Bruxism: Clenching of teeth, common in people with high levels of stress, can lead to enamel wearing and subsequent sensitivity.
  6. Dental treatment: Some dental procedures like scaling, crowns, root planing, and some fillings can cause transient sensitivity.
  7. Highly acidic food items: Citrus fruits, tomatoes, tea, etc. can lead to tooth sensitivity.
  8. Bleaching agents:  Most tooth whitening agents result in sensitive teeth.
  9. Excessive use of mouthwash: The mouth rinses contain high amount of alcohol which can also lead to tooth sensitivity.

Management: As with all health conditions, the first step in management is to identify the problem.  Whether it is dental decay or recent dental treatment, food habits or tooth whitening agents, the cause needs to be identified and then treatment begun accordingly.

  1. For lost enamel, be it decay or damage, the tooth again needs to be restored to its original form to cover the dentinal tubules and reduce sensitivity.
  2. For habits, be it food related or bruxism, in addition to treating the tooth, the habit per se needs to be addressed to prevent recurrence.
  3. For associated dental products like whitening agents or mouth rinses, talk to a dentist to switch to a less harmful product.
  4. De-sensitizing pastes are also available that can be used on a regular basis to reduce the problem.

Tooth sensitivity is annoying but there are ways to manage it effectively.

At your age mouth ulcers are very common. So do not worry. This ulcers are because of stress hormones and also because of stomach upset. Both are common symptoms at your age. Always keep a 0.1%kenakort buccal paste with you and apply over the lesions whenever they recur. You will get relief in 2-3 days. Take sufficient amount of vitamin b in your diet.

It is best to get your broken teeth removed to prevent infections n pus accumulations in future. Implants r placed were there is no part of tooth is left behind. You can plan with an implantologist to place implants soon after the roots r removed on the same day.

Hi, My wife is pregnant and facing a problem of Saliva in mouth continuously. It's big irritation matter for her to take a good sleep because she has to go to washroom due to saliva in mouth continuously. What is the cause of this and also advise some solution for this.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Its not known what causes some women to have excessive salivation in early pregnancy, but hormonal changes may be a culprit. Also, nausea might make some women try to swallow less, causing saliva to build up in the mouth. Following measures are helpful: brush your teeth and use mouthwash several times a day. Eat frequent, small, well-balanced meals, and avoid excessive amounts of starchy food. Drink plenty of water. Keep a water bottle handy and take frequent small sips. Suck on hard candy or chew sugarless gum. This won't make you produce less saliva, but it will make it easier for you to swallow the saliva you do produce. Avoid sour candies and gum, as they can stimulate saliva production.

Dental Health Tip

Saving a fallen tooth can be useful. Try to keep it in place while you seek immediate medical attention. If that is not the case, try wrapping the tooth in a piece of plastic or soaking it in to milk and call for immediate dental service.

You might be suffering from disease of gums called as" pyorrhea. Start doing warm saline rinses after meals. Also get an oral prophylaxis(scaling) done by a dentist. That would help a lot.
