Various measures to maintain the right oral hygiene

Hi! I am doctor Diksha Batra from Smile Essentials, the topic for the day is a question that is usually asked, how do I keep my teeth, clean doctor? This is a common question so we decided to come up with 4 easy quick steps for you to look after your beautiful smile Step 1 is a simple thing called flossing but none of us really do it. Flossing is cleaning in between your teeth, it really becomes difficult to use a thread so we recommend a device which is called a disposable plastic. A disposable plastic is a simple device like a toothpick but it is actually better than that. So it is used to clean between teeth to solve all your problems with cavities, gum diseases or even bad breath. Once flossing is done all the loose food debris is dislodged and now you can move to step 2.Step 2 is brushing, all of us do recommend brushing twice a day, once in the day and once at night. We do recommend choosing the right toothbrush, it has to be a toothbrush with soft bristles.

We recommend using a motorized brush as the best mode of cleaning your teeth but if you are using a manual brush the bristles should be soft. We are often asked which toothpaste to be used? The toothpaste can be any toothpaste but it should have a gel component as well as a paste component to protect your teeth not only from cavities but also from gum diseases. Use fluoride which protects your teeth from cavities. Step 3 is tongue cleaning, this is one of the most important steps in prevention of bad breath. Tongue cleaning can be done with either a metal or plastic tongue cleaner just ensure that all the white deposit on the tongue is removed completely. These are the bacterial disease that causes halitosis or bad breath Step 4, of course, is mouthwash, use a diluted mouthwash with one cap mouthwash and one glass of water, make sure to use an alcohol-free product.

Besides these four points please ensure that you are replacing your toothbrush every 3-4 months and make sure that you rinse twice a day even if you can't manage to brush. Also ensure that you are rinsing after every meal, also make sure that you get a dental cleaning every six months to detect any new cavities and to even ensure that there is no gum disease. With this we say that these are the 4 simple steps to maintain 32 teeth and a beautiful smile.

This is doctor Diksha Batra once again from Smile Essentials.

How A Dental Checkup Is Beneficial For Overall Health?

How A Dental Checkup Is Beneficial For Overall Health?

When you walk into a dental consult assuming it’ll be just about that tooth which is hurting you’ll be shocked to know that it’s a lot more than just that.Every dentist is meant to evaluate you on a variety of characteristics starting from your mental make up down to your risk assessment. Remember (hangover the line about you’re just a dentist) those movies that talk about dentists not being doctors Well if you read on you’ll know why dentists are doing all the heavy lifting when it comes to your overall health as well.

1. Checking your overall health: It starts from the waiting room where we tend to check your overall appearance rule out any obvious syndromes and diseases. Your body language, breathing rate and sometimes even your gait can be telltale signs of underlying problems that when diagnosed well can medically save you years of treatment. A patient of ours was really tall and had a very oddly pronounced bone structure and we ordered hormone tests turns out he had a growth hormone excess which was due to a tumour which was thankfully removed in time. If you were panting getting to your dentist on the first floor you may want to get a fitness assessment for your heart. 

2. Checking your facial profile: Your face shape colour and size has a lot to do with how your smile fits into that frame. Most dentists have a good idea about your teeth size shape and even alignment even before you open your mouth. 

3. Profiling your personality: We learn to classify personality types in dental school as this helps us in communicating with you better and also customizing your smiles based on your nature. If you’re a bold female in a corporate job we reckon strong squarish teeth will suit your personality as opposed to round small teeth. If you’re a methodical and detail oriented patient chances are you’re extremely conscious about your dental hygiene as well. If you’re extremely phobic of the entire dental process we have prior assessments for the same to ensure proper treatment approaches suited to your needs.

4. Assessing your genetic propensity: When your dental checkup is happening we also take a family history to understand if you are genetically more prone to cavities and dental problems. These patterns have a tremendous genetic repetition and even if you brush twice a day you may wonder why you end up with cavities it could be because genetically you are more prone. This doesn’t mean all is lost but this means that you will have to protect yourself more than regular hygiene methods like a fluoride treatment annually starting from a young age can help give you extra protection.

5. Checking for any joint problems: Some of us end up getting severe facial pain and problems with our facial joints near the ears. Since this falls between the grey area of an ear,nose,throat physician or a dentist we don’t know who exactly will solve these problems. But many dentists undertake TMJ studies as a specialty in itself since it’s more to do with jaws and teeth than the ears. A normal checkup will entail assessing your joint is healthy as well. 

6. Saving you from CancerA dentist also must check your gums lips and cheeks to rule out any white patches or growths that may increase your risk to cancer. A routine full mouth panoramic X-ray is actually legally mandatory after each checkup to rule out any hidden bone or jaw growths.

If you are someone who shudders at the sound of the word dentist, read our blog to help you to take the first step.

Create a Pain Free Future For Your Next Generation

Create a Pain Free Future For Your Next Generation

“Brush Kar lo nahin toh doctor injection de dega"

“Please Chocolate mat khaana tumhare daant sad jayenge"

Remember as children if we wouldn’t brush,the myriad threats we would face from doctors,injections or even the fear of tooth extractions would suffice to make anything to do with teeth-brushing or treatments absolutely dreadful!

My childhood was spent avoiding brushing at night and sneaking in sweets and my only dental visits were for braces and they started of on an unpleasant note with 4 extractions and that’s the only memory I have when someone says Dentist!!

Until I became one and started realizing that we could affect this change ONE SMILE at a time.Dentistry has changed drastically if we are willing to adapt to that change. National Children’s Dental Health Month should be more than a calendar month.Let’s make a positive change for our future generations.

Here are 5 key factors to eliminating fear in a child’s mind.

1. No More Threats

If you’re a parent,teacher,caregiver or even a doctor stop threatening.Start at home by eliminating threats from your vocabulary.

We transmit our fears unknowingly to our young ones it’s time we became conscious of the impact our words have on their psyche.

2. Make It Fun

As parents we are diligent in our research to figure what’s the best way my child should brush or the best product to use but we seldom look into how to make it more fun.We just impose brushing and expect the child to follow suit.

We often advise parents that making your child’s brushing activity fun by using apps,games,gadgets and music can go a long way in their dental health for life.

So don’t stress about what to brush with but rather how should your child be taking up to brushing and oral hygiene in general.

3.Research a Painfree specialist

The term family dentist is totally passé there is no such concept anymore.With a wide variety of specialisations and recent advances just one person is not expected to handle the dental needs of your entire family.Pediatric dentists are specialized to work on children and there adult specialists who treat different dental maladies be it your root canals,gum problems,teeth alignment and even teeth replacement.

Be sure to choose a compassionate care provider whose prime concern is to ensure that pain should be the last thing you or your child are feeling in the chair.

4. Memorable First Visit

It’s a special day when a child visits a dentist for the first time. It can be the start of a life long relationship with the dental care provider and even their concept in general with their own dental health.

The doctor must ensure they take all the measures to make a positive impact on the patients mind always maintaining an encouraging tone rather than an intimidating authoritative attitude.

A variety of exciting surprises can be prepared for your child’s dental visit based on their age so that they walk out smiling.

5. Rewards

If your child was brave enough to go through a dental visit and battle the demons that we have so meticulously planted in their minds,let us at least make sure they’re rewarded starting from the clinic itself and even back at home.

Be it their favorite thing to eat or a small present that they have been vying for try and create a positive memory association or rewarding good behavior at the dentist.

This will ensure that your child is ready for the next visit.

Let me summarize with every parents checklist for their child’s healthy dental future

If you have

  • refrained from threatening or bullying your child into brushing,
  • he finds it a fun activity,
  • has been to Painfree expert and

had an excellent first dental visit with

  • a reward commemorating his behavior

need I say you’ve done your best!

How Much Dental Implants Really Cost?

Dentist, Mumbai
How Much Dental Implants Really Cost?

The most common question that I receive these days on a social media page, an email, a phone call or even from patients I meet at a party is not what dental implants are but rather what do they cost?
It’s the most common assumption that both dentists and patients make that they already know what dental implants are and what they entail. The  entire class on the types, benefits, indications, implications of dental implants was somehow missed and all we have is myths that are widely believed without scientific basis and customizing to your own case. This is exactly why when one hears a cost attached to this procedure they have no basis to rationalize this as cheap or expensive other than the last quote they heard or saw online.
Would you decide your cardiac or neuro surgeon on the basis of his or her rate card? Deciding your dental implant procedure and specialist based on this arbitrary figure can be extremely dangerous.
 Here’s a quick guide to factors to decide for yourself what your dental implants must cost –educate and empower yourself

#1 Implant type –origin & make
The key decision in the choice of your implant is the company, design and origin of your implant.
As most products the American & European implants from global companies will be expensive for the quality and standards they represent. This is not to say that local makes are not effective but paying for something that is globally approved and available is well worth the cost.
It maybe a good practice to ask your surgeon for the research that supports why the implant they’re using is the best.
The type of design and material of the implant also determines cost-for example tooth colored zirconia implants are more expensive than the standard titanium ones.
Even your dental surgeon is limited by the type of support he receives from the implant company so choose and pay wisely based on this key factor.

#2 Skill & qualifications of your surgeon 
Once you have a great implant the person placing it for you must have the right hands for placing it.

  • Qualifications: When researching your dentist check his qualifications like a specialization in surgery or prosthodontics (science of replacing missing teeth) or even a specialized international degree in implants.
  • Previous cases : You can ask your dentist for any photographs they may have done and how they turned out.
  • Feedback: Read some testimonials of previous patients or ask for references
  • Skill & Experience: while this is less apparent to judge the above points will prove this 

 

  • #3 The type of dental practice 
    Do your research and choose a practice that is geared towards surgery and they have the necessary infrastructure and training to manage emergencies with adeqaute experience.
    Another important factor is how humane they are in their approach how comfortable they can make you and how painless their approach to dentistry is be it a simple cleaning or a full mouth implant surgery.

    #4 The complication of your case –your medical & dental history

    If you have multiple teeth that you lost years ago and are now well into your middle or senior years with a few lifestyle diseases like diabetes or bone density issues understand that your complication level is higher than a 20 year old who needs to replace one missing tooth they lost a few months ago.
    The cost attached to complications must be understood and most cases will require prior preparation before implants can be placed


    #5 Access 
    Make sure your final choice of dentist and practice is someone who is accessible and approachable to you even minutes or years after your surgery and not someone who just wants to make a quick buck. Ask them about follow ups.
    #6 Availability
    A common occurrence we see is patients getting implants of companies that they have no idea of this can pose a problem if something comes loose or breaks you need to know what you have in your mouth and that must have enough global reach and presence so if you were to relocate or travel you could still be treated anywhere in the world.

Consider these and you will never feel confused or cheated. There is never a price too high for a painfree comfortable surgery done by gentle hands and a caring doctor to give you fixed teeth that help you chew better and smile freely without the fear of appearing artificial or falling out like dentures.

 What is the right age for a child's first dental appointment ?

We often get asked this question from most worried parents.

An infant develops teeth at 6 months age and starts can be in the teething phase as late as 2.5 years of age.This period is followed by 4 years of using and protecting milk teeth.At age 6 the transition of milk teeth changing into permanent teeth begins and goes on up to the age of almost 12 years.

Chances are most of us haven't visited the dentist until we were well into our teens or even in our twenties and even if we had to earlier it wasn't an entirely memorable experience.This is why most parents believe there's no need to bring their child unless there's a problem.There are many others who have now started bringing their children early on to prevent the same experiences or dental problems they've had.

So the right age to bring in a child for a check up is as early as 6 months-within 1 year of age when teeth start to develop and problems such as teething may arise. It is at this stage that 3 things need to happen:-

 1.Parents need to know how to care for their infants emerging teeth.

 2.They may need help with teething the first few months.

3.Most importantly the child needs to start getting comfortable with the environment sights sounds and smells of the dental office.

So if you do make it to the clinic with your infant a delightful array of experiences are awaiting you and your child.Forget the conventional dental experience. The children these days are greeted with a host of pleasant surprises as they refuse to leave the clinic as amazed mothers look are comfortably counselled about how to handle the toughest issues.From making brushing fun to looking out for cavities and bad habits to watch out for moms know it all by the time they walk out of this experience.

 

5 Ways to Treat Cracked Teeth

5 Ways to Treat Cracked Teeth

Teeth are remarkably strong, but they can chip, crack (fracture) or break. This can happen in several ways:

  • Biting down on something hard
  • Being hit in the face or mouth
  • Falling
  • Having cavities that weaken the tooth
  • Having large, old amalgam fillings that don't support the remaining enamel of the tooth

When a tooth chips or breaks, it may not hurt. However, your tongue usually feels the sharp area quite quickly. Minor tooth fractures usually don't cause pain, but if a large piece of the tooth breaks off, it can hurt. The nerve inside the tooth may be damaged. Extreme discomfort also can happen when nerve endings in the dentin are exposed to air, or to hot or cold foods or drinks.

Some of the types of cracked teeth, in increasing order of severity of the crack are listed below.

  1. Craze lines: These thin, shallow lines are limited to the outer layer of enamel and are very common in adults. They are not painful and only cause a mild esthetic concern.
  2. Fractured cusp: The tip of the front teeth or the cusp of the molars could be broken. In both cases, if only the enamel is chipped off, then there is no pain. However, if it extends into the dentin, it can cause sensitivity.
  3. Cracked tooth: The line of breakage is along the tooth, vertically extending towards the root, but the tooth is not split. This can be quite painful and requires immediate attention. Early intervention is helpful in preventing tooth loss.
  4. Split tooth: If the damage is even greater, then the crack continues through the length of the tooth and splits the tooth into two. This cannot be saved and in most cases will require extraction.
  5. Vertical root fracture: A blow to the lower line of the lower jaw can cause an injury like this. The crack begins in the root of the tooth and extends toward the crown. This leads to infection of the surrounding gums and teeth which is when they are usually detected.

The following are common methods to treat cracked teeth.

  1. Dental bonding: Dental bonding is a procedure, wherein, a tooth-colored composite material is applied to a tooth, sculpted into shape, hardened, and polished. It is called bonding because the material bonds to the tooth. An adhesive material resembling the tooth is permanently applied to mask and reinforce the crack lines making the tooth both esthetic and strong at the same. In newer treatments, there's a newer material that repairs cracks and can even salvage teeth that are even vertically fractured but prognosis depends from case to case. Dental bonding is ideal fixing a broken or chipped tooth or closing small gaps between teeth.
  2. Veneer: A thin layer of enamel is removed and either porcelain or composite is used to replace this enamel and the lost tooth structure. This can be used in cases of fractured cusps and broken edges of incisors also. Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy. Because they are very thin and are held in place by a special, strong adhesive, very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Some types of veneers don't need any preparation at all.
  3. Crowns: In some cases, especially molars, if the amount of tooth lost is significant, then a full crown may be needed to restore the tooth structure. For a crown to be placed without root canal, there should be no pain in the tooth.
  4. Root canal: If the crack is vertical or involves the root portion of the tooth, then it is very likely that the tooth will require root canal treatment. The root needs to be cleared of infection, and if there is significant tooth material lost, then a crown also would be required.
  5. Extraction: If a tooth has been broken, your dentist will try to fix it with a bonding, veneer, crown or other treatment. Sometimes, though, there's too much damage or has been vertically fractured and cannot be salvaged. In this case, it requires a removal. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dentist.

A Quick Guide To Maintain Your Kids Dental Health!

A Quick Guide To Maintain Your Kids Dental Health!

As a parent it is essential that you condition your kids with healthy dental maintenance habits.

Baby teeth play an important role in helping your child bite and chew food, and speak clearly.

ORAL HYGIENE FOR YOUR TODDLER

A toddlers’ dental care regime includes wiping your child’s gums with an infant gum massager, clean damp gauze or a washcloth.

Once your child’s teeth come in, brush them twice a day using a soft bristled toothbrush with water.

Research shows that children who develop cavities in their baby teeth are more likely to develop cavities as an adult, so be sure to get your child to a dentist for a checkup. It is important to keep your child’s baby teeth clean, but once the permanent teeth start to come in you really need to make cleaning them a priority. These teeth will last your child a lifetime.

Brushing

At some point, your child will want to brush his or her own teeth. It’s fine to give him a turn. But afterwards, you should always brush your child’s teeth a second time. Most children won’t be able to brush their teeth well on their own until they are about 6-8 years old. Use fluoride toothpaste only when your child is old enough NOT to swallow it.

Nutrition

While what your child eats is important for healthy teeth, how often a child eats is just as important. Cavities can develop when sugar-containing foods are allowed to stay in the mouth for a long time. Bacteria that live on the teeth feast on these bits of food. They create acid, which eats away at tooth enamel. Between meals or snacks, saliva washes away the acid. If your child is always eating, there may not be time for this acid to get washed away.

1st Dental Visit

New parents often ask, “When should my child first see a dentist?”

Your child should see a dentist by his or her first birthday.

Losing Baby Teeth

On average children begin to lose their baby teeth when they are about 6 or 7 years old. It doesn’t mean something is wrong with your child if they lose their teeth before or after this time.

Most children lose their teeth in the same order they came in.

For example, they lose their bottom center teeth first. When a child is about 6 years old their teeth will begin to come loose. Let your child wiggle the tooth until it falls out on its own. This will minimize the pain and bleeding associated with a lost tooth.

A word of caution -Remember!

Giving your child a bottle of sweetened liquid many times a day, or allowing your child to fall asleep with a bottle during naps, or at night, can be harmful to the child’s teeth.

Sing along the Smile Essentials Healthy Teeth Rhyme with your Kids!

Dab on some toothpaste on my colourful brush,

There is no hurry and I should not rush,

Slowly and steadily my teeth get clean,

As I brush all over and in between,

This may take a while,

But is very important for a great SMILE!

Many of the same treatment and evaluation options that adults have are also available to kids.

These include x-rays, dental sealants, orthodontic treatment and more.

Our Cosmetic Dentistry services are quick, painless and surprisingly affordable. You can choose to undergo either of these dental procedures to get the best smile.

For instance, a tooth looks much longer than the rest, some enamel can be removed and your tooth can be reshaped. The process is usually quick and painless.
    3. Bonding: It involves applying a tooth-coloured plastic putty called composite resin to the surface of your chipped, broken or discoloured teeth. The composite resin can also fill in gaps between your teeth and protect roots that are exposed due to gum recession. The entire procedure is virtually painless and is usually completed in one visit. However, a complex case may require several appointments.
    4. Porcelain Veneers: These are thin, custom-made, tooth-coloured shells that cover the front of your teeth. Once applied, they correct misaligned, poorly shaped, damaged, or discoloured teeth. The process of applying veneers usually involves two or three visits at Smile Essentials.
    5. Braces: Recent advances in orthodontic treatment, such as less visible and more effective brackets and wires, now make straightening crooked teeth more palatable for many adults. How long you’ll have to wear them depends on the severity of your problem, the health of your teeth, gums and supporting bone, and your age.

    Dental Implants: A lost tooth or teeth can be replaced with dental implants. Dental implants are tooth replacements that are closest to natural teeth in having a root component below the gum and a tooth or crown attached to itThey’re.They’re much more secure and natural looking than dentures or bridgework.

A Quick Guide to Maintaining Your Kids Dental Health

As a parent it is essential that you condition your kids with healthy dental maintenance habits.

Baby teeth play an important role in helping your child bite and chew food, and speak clearly.

ORAL HYGIENE FOR YOUR TODDLER

A toddlers’ dental care regime includes wiping your child’s gums with an infant gum massager, clean damp gauze or a washcloth.

Once your child’s teeth come in, brush them twice a day using a soft bristled toothbrush with water.

Why it’s so important ?

Underneath your child’s baby teeth, the roots and position of the adult teeth are growing into place.Research shows that children who develop cavities in their baby teeth are more likely to develop cavities as an adult, so be sure to get your child to a dentist for a checkup. It is important to keep your child’s baby teeth clean, but once the permanent teeth start to come in you really need to make cleaning them a priority. These teeth will last your child a lifetime.

Brushing

At some point, your child will want to brush his or her own teeth. It’s fine to give him a turn. But afterwards, you should always brush your child’s teeth a second time. Most children won’t be able to brush their teeth well on their own until they are about 6-8 years old. Use fluoride toothpaste only when your child is old enough NOT to swallow it.

Nutrition

While what your child eats is important for healthy teeth, how often a child eats is just as important. Cavities can develop when sugar-containing foods are allowed to stay in the mouth for a long time. Bacteria that live on the teeth feast on these bits of food. They create acid, which eats away at tooth enamel. Between meals or snacks, saliva washes away the acid. If your child is always eating, there may not be time for this acid to get washed away.

1st Dental Visit

New parents often ask, “When should my child first see a dentist?”

Your child should see a dentist by his or her first birthday.

Losing Baby Teeth

On average children begin to lose their baby teeth when they are about 6 or 7 years old. It doesn’t mean something is wrong with your child if they lose their teeth before or after this time.

Most children lose their teeth in the same order they came in.

For example, they lose their bottom center teeth first. When a child is about 6 years old their teeth will begin to come loose. Let your child wiggle the tooth until it falls out on its own. This will minimize the pain and bleeding associated with a lost tooth.

A word of caution -Remember!

Giving your child a bottle of sweetened liquid many times a day, or allowing your child to fall asleep with a bottle during naps, or at night, can be harmful to the child’s teeth.
