Can Toothaches Be Prevented?

Can Toothaches Be Prevented?

Since most toothaches are the result of tooth decay, following good oral hygiene practices can prevent toothaches.

Good oral hygiene practices consist of brushing regularly with a fluoride-containing toothpaste, flossing once daily, rinsing once or twice a day with an antiseptic mouthwash, and seeing your dentist twice a year for professional cleaning.

In addition to these practices, eat foods low in sugar and ask us about sealants. Sealants are a great solution when it comes to safeguard your teeth.

Dental Erosion - Ways To Repair It

Certified Implantologist
Dentist, Kolkata
Dental Erosion - Ways To Repair It

There are a lot of ways that tooth enamel (hardest substance in the body) can wear off – decay and erosion being the most common. While decay is an infectious process with bacteria playing a significant role, erosion is nowhere associated with bacteria. The tooth gets ‘eroded’ in small amounts with the various food substances that you eat. These include the sodas that wash down the burgers and pizzas, the various sports drinks that are used to boost performance, the lime and oranges that are constantly sucked, and other acidic and sugary foods.

It does not mean you should not have an occasional soda or a sports drink or a citrus fruit. It is the constant and overuse of these that is damaging. The oral pH goes to a very acidic level (below 5.5) with these which then leads to demineralization of the enamel. The environment that is usually produced by the bacteria is caused by the acidic and sugary foods.

In some cases, acids could come from an internal source too. People with gastroesophageal reflux disease may have the acid coming from the esophagus, which also can lead to erosion.

However, there is nothing to be disheartened about as the lost enamel can be replaced to restore both tooth function and appearance. The most commonly affected teeth are the inner surfaces of the upper incisors and the biting surfaces of the lower molars. The result is tooth sensitivity, darker teeth, and increased chances of tooth decay and fracture.

Repair Mechanisms: Treating erosion has two components to it – to repair the lost tooth structure and to prevent further damage. The second is equally or rather more important than the first one.

Treatment-

  1. Restorations: In mild cases of erosion, the lost tooth structure can be rebuilt with composite resins or glass ionomer cement which usually restores lost tooth structure to its earlier version. Usually done in one sitting, it should not take more than an hour. The results would last longer if further erosion is prevented.

  2. Crowns: In cases where a lot of tooth structure has been lost and the remaining enamel weakened, a new crown will need to be done. This offers protection against further decay and also restores esthetics and function quite effectively.

Prevention-

  1. Avoid overuse of acidic, sugary drinks like sports drinks and aerated beverages.

  2. Avoid sucking on oranges as they prolong the effect of the citric acid on the tooth.

  3. Include toothpaste and rinse with fluoride.

  4. Improve dairy intake, thereby providing sufficient calcium.

  5. Follow oral hygiene habits including brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits.

Lost tooth structure unfortunately cannot be regained; however, further loss can be prevented.

If you wish to discuss about any specific dental problem, you can consult a specilized dentist and ask a free question.

Brush your teeth twice a day, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Floss your teeth inter dentally once a day. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and have regular thorough dental check-ups where your dentist will look at the health of both your teeth and your mouth.

Can you prescribe a good toothpaste of affordable price for white teeth and red gums.
If you have red gums also I think you would first require a scaling polishing by a dentist than use good co soft tooth brush with any standard tooth paste of your choice.

This kind of ulceration may cause due to deficiency of vitamin B complex. In your case if vitamin B complex capsule are not responding. But by homoeopathic treatment you can get rid of it completely and permanently. Foods that are good sources of vitamin B12 include: Beef, pork, ham, poultry, and lamb Fish, especially haddock, and tuna Milk, cheese, and yogurt Some nutritional yeast products Eggs. Vegans consume no animal products. But they can take vitamin B12 dietary supplements to avoid deficiency. Some types of soya milk and breakfast cereals are fortified with vitamin B12. Some nutritional yeast products may contain vitamin B12.

If you have fluorosis then scaling and bleaching would not give satisfactory results. Go for laminates and veeners. Consult a dentist and get it done.

Hello, you can add a pinch of baking soda in water an rinse with it. This will help to heal your ulcers. If it still persists you need to visit a physician and get your vitamin B levels checked. Take supplements for it if required.

I am getting blood in my mouth and bad odor please let me know the reason.

BDS
Dentist,
I am getting blood in my mouth and bad odor please let me know the reason.
May be chances of tartar and stain present surrounding the neck of the teeth causes generalised swelling of gum (tartar and stain are black, greyish or yellowish in colour) go to the dentist and get cleaned your teeth there are many other causes of bleeding gums systemic problems lack of vitamin c intake improper brushing habits etc. So it is better to go to the dentist and do appropriate treatment. Treatment for bad breath brush twice a day clean your tongue daily leave the habit of tabeco, alcohol, bidi, gutka, cigarette etc drinks lots of water you can also chew sugar free gums as they too help in avoiding bad breth and the last consult to your dentist do appropriate treatment for gum disease if present, get your teeth cleaned if needed (i. E. Scaling and polishing) get filled the teeth with appropriate material if have cavities etc.

Mouth breathing habit can be treated by a habit breaking appliance. You can get it fabricated for yourself by a dentist near you. Mouth breathing must have caused little damage resulting in briwn sputum. Consult a physician for the needful.
