Dental Erosion - Ways To Repair It

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.

आप दंत चिकित्सक की सलाह पर अमल करें। ना कि अपने मित्रों के। stones are very dangerous for your teeth and gums. It is better you have space in your teeth which could be covered by perioprosthetic treatment. Yes, After stones ie. Calculus removed you might feel light and space with shaky teeth but oroper medication and rootplaning will make them strong and survivable. Stones are deposited after a long period of disrespect to your oral health and unhygiene. Please keep in mind that you need to go for a good treatment with patience and understanding. Do not bother about people's talk on your health but listen to a dentist and ask for all the best and expensive treatments he or she can offer.

Generally speaking, pain is a protective response that ranges from minor sensitivity to severe pain and informs the body that something is wrong. As for tooth pain, it is caused by a reaction of the nerves inside a tooth's pulp chamber with the severity dependent upon the type and degree of the stimulus or because of irritation of the gums surrounding the tooth, thus its vital that proper diagnosis of the cause of the pain be made before any sort of treatment can be sought. Usually a painkiller can ease the pain temporarily.

Hello lybrate-user" root canal treatment" it self explaining the half part of treatment. It is the cleaning of tooth root which consist of canal in it. Every tooth have crown and root portion. This crown as well as root portion cansist of cavity in it. This cavity contains pulp which is sensitive part of tooth and carries pain, hot and cold sensations. In root portion this cavity form a canal according to the shape of root. Once this cavity is is exposed to oral environment means it get infected. In such situation root canal is the only option for that tooth.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.

How do I use coconut oil for dental problem? I mean what is the procedure for applying coconut oil?
Although its an ancient practice, its not medically recommended. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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.

For yellowish teeth again if there is tartar /deposit then you can get teeth cleaning done. But if the natural colour is yellow you can might as well get teeth bleaching done .for fr/ont teeth .we would have to check you clinically first .as orthodontic treatment or cosmetic correction can help you get those teeth in size.

If you leave it untreated what happens is every food he eats, some particles may stuck there.as children do not brush their teeth properly as adults.there may be chances of food stck there, and cause infection and may be pus. So either you should be very careful about teething his teeth properly and other dental care or you can go for dentist's advice.
