It usually starts from 3000. If it is done by good clinician or endodontist then they can assure you, but there is no guarantee in medical fuild as we all know there is no guarantee for life too.

To avoid tooth decay and gum disease due to plaque build-up, daily flossing is highly recommended.

Oral Cancer - In A Nutshell!

Oral Cancer - In A Nutshell!

Oral cancer (OC) occurs when DNA mutations develop in the cells lining the lips and the mouth cavity. It commonly affects the tongue, floor of mouth, buccal mucosa, lips, palate, gum etc all. Mostly, oral cancers are squamous cell carcinomas that begin in the squamous cells lining the lips and the inside of mouth.

  1. Type: of oral cancer are as enumerated below -

    1. Squamous cell carcinoma: is the most common, as described above.

    2. Adenocarcinoma: affects the salivary glands.

    3. Lymphoma: affects the tissues of the tonsil(s) or those involving the lymphatic system.

    4. Melanoma: may affect the mucous tissues of the oral cavity.

  2. Gender: affects the male populace predominantly. But, it can affect both male and female. It’s the commonest cancer in India currently, and accounts for a significant percentage of the total cancer mortality.

  3. Etiology: consumption of “khaini” (tobacco & lime mix), betel nut, areca nut, slaked lime, chronic irritation due to irregular teeth, smoking, alcohol consumption, oral infection with Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) / Human Papilloma virus (HPV), nutritional deficiencies, chronic infections & poor dental/ oral hygiene are the common risk factors that can trigger oral carcinogenesis. It is noteworthy that the local effects of tobacco and alcohol are both dose-dependent and synergistic.

  4. Features: the various presentations (of signs & symptoms) of Oral cancer are as given below –

    1. Cheek cancer - hard and painless thickening, with an ulcer sometimes that does not heal for weeks together.

    2. Lip cancer - white patch on the inner lining of the lip on which a hard mass slowly develops.

    3. Palate cancer- persistent sore on the hard palate that may ulcerate.

    4. Throat cancer - difficulty swallowing, sore throat, voice changes, feeling of hard lump in the throat.

    5. Tongue cancer - ulcer on the side of the tongue that bleeds occasionally and does not heal.

    6. Gum cancer and cancer of the minor salivary glands - loose teeth, bad breath and sensory loss of the feelings in the face

  5. Screening: is generally recommended for asymptomatic populations goal of which, as usual, is to be able to detect & diagnose oral cancer at an early stage which is potentially curable. Visual screening by healthcare personnel including dentists, general practitioners, oncologists, surgeons etc all is crucial to detect not only early asymptomatic oral cancers but also the oral pre-cancerous lesions including oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF), oral leukoplakia, erythroplakia et al which carry a high risk of malignant transformation to in-situ and invasive cancers.

  6. Diagnosis: a complete physical exam of the local parts basis the features mentioned above arouses suspicion that prompts diagnosis -

    1. Biopsy (punch or removal of mass of tissue (excision) for cytology) clinches the diagnosis of oral cancer. Should there be a neck mass that arises suspicion of a regional metastatic disease, a fine needle biopsy (FNB) can be attempted.

    2. Initial staging workup includes CT, MRI scans etc all. PET CT scan though frequently employed, is not usually used for the initial workup.

    3. A triple endoscopy that includes laryngoscopy, esophagoscopy and bronchoscopy can help definitive staging of the disease. Biopsies obtained during this procedure help confirm the primary diagnosis, define the extent to which the primary site disease has spread, and identify additional pre-malignant lesions and metastasis, if any.

  7. Treatment / Prognosis: preventive measures, earlier diagnosis and right early treatment is key for better prognostication and efficient/ effective therapeutic management of oral cancer. Conventional treatment includes surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy as deems appropriate. Simultaneously, an adjunctive or integrative naturopathic treatment with suitable complementary & alternative medicines (CAM) too can help improve clinical endpoints and facilitate recovery as would be feasible contextually. As seen with other cancers, the site, stage, histopathological grading etc all determine the treatment outlook. The number of micronucleated oral mucosal cells can be a useful biomarker for predicting course of oral pre-cancerous lesions and prognosis thereof.

  8. Prevention: rightly said, prevention is always a better choice. Although genetic risks are difficult to modify, still an increased focus on protective factors and avoidance of the risk factors can be of help. Especially, abstaining from use of tobacco/ products, alcohol, regularly maintaining oral health and hygiene and daily intake of fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables can help prevent a vast majority of oral cancers. Also, timely screening/ detection of the pre-cancerous lesions of the oral cavity and prompt treatment thereof is crucial to preventing a malignant transformation of the same. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

One should never take too many painkillers without knowing the reason of pain, so I shall suggest that you see a dentist in person and check out with him the reason of dental pain.

How can I clean my teeth and clean our yellowness which is on teeth. And how can I clean teeth ?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

How can I clean my teeth and clean our yellowness which is on teeth. And how can I clean teeth ?
Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. 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.

Both RCT and extraction can be done without pain. But as a dentist I suggest you to undergo RCT to preserve the tooth rather than extracting the same. Extraction option will always be there.

Inflammation in the gums gives birth to a mild form of gum disease known as gingivitis. But it can be treated easily by brushing and flossing daily and getting dental cleaning done regularly.

I have gingivitis I got scaling done and have been using gum paint for a month now but my gums still bleed.

Avoid Tobacco for better Heatlth

Dentist,
Avoid Tobacco for better Heatlth

Avoid Tobacco,this will be a big favor to your teeth. One, it will save you from oral cancer and periodontal complications. Two, it will save you from the countless ill effects caused by the agents used to mask the smell of tobacco. For example, if you smoke a cigarette, you may use candies, tea or coffee to mask the smoky breath and odor. This doubles the amount of damage caused.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. "Ulcers in the throat" or in he mouth? Because it is difficult to see throat ulcers clearly and count them. There is a possibility of throat inflammation plus ulcers in the mouth. Any ways, it appears you need some specific treatment both for inflammation (which could be due to infection) and ulceration. You will probably need B complex capsules plus an antibiotic for few days. Thanks.

Stop tobacco in any form, if using. Take some good antioxidants for a month. Sometimes stress also leads to such conditions so do take care of it.

4 Foods That Strengthen Your Child’s Teeth

4 Foods That Strengthen Your Child’s Teeth
4 Foods That Strengthen Your Child’s Teeth

Kids have a mind of their own when it comes to food. The unhealthier it is, the more they tend to like it. Most taste driven or sweet foods are harmful for your child’s oral hygiene. However not all foods that your children like to eat are as bad for their oral health, some even help strengthen their teeth.

Here are 4 foods that your children can have for healthy teeth and gums.

1) Sugarless Gum - It helps loosen plaque and increase the number of natural antibodies in the mouth. It also keeps the gums hydrated. While too much of anything is not good, these gums are good once in a while.

2) Crispy Vegetables - These might not be popular with children but can be made yummy with interesting dips to go with them. Raw carrots, celery, cauliflower, and green beans are chewing foods which clean the child's teeth and gums.

3) Natural Sugar - Sugar from milk, yoghurt and cheese are rich in vitamin D, phosphate and calcium. When consumed, they raise the pH level of the mouth which lowers the level of acids, hence reducing risk of tooth decay.

4) Vitamin C Rich Foods - Fruits like oranges, kiwis, strawberries, papayas and limes help kill bacteria that can cause gingivitis. They also aid a good supply of collagen in the child's gums. However, parents need to remember that one can eat citrus foods only after thirty minutes from brushing their teeth. This is because the citric acid in these foods can weaken the tooth enamel temporarily.

There should not be pain because of spacing. Still in case of spacing, he can visit a orthodontist for space closure.
