Cavities

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Cavities
Cavities, or tooth decay, is the destruction of your tooth enamel, the hard, outer layer of your teeth. It can be a problem for children, teens and adults. Plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, constantly forms on your teeth. When you eat or drink foods containing sugars, the bacteria in plaque produce acids that attack tooth enamel. The stickiness of the plaque keeps these acids in contact with your teeth and over time the enamel can break down. This is when cavities can form. A cavity is a little hole in your tooth.

Cavities are more common among children, but changes that occur with aging make cavities an adult problem, too. Recession of the gums away from the teeth, combined with an increased incidence of gum disease, can expose tooth roots to plaque. Tooth roots are covered with cementum, a softer tissue than enamel. They are susceptible to decay and are more sensitive to touch and to hot and cold. It’s common for people over age 50 to have tooth-root decay.

Decay around the edges, or a margin, of fillings is also common for older adults. Because many older adults lacked benefits of fluoride and modern preventive dental care when they were growing up, they often have a number of dental fillings. Over the years, these fillings may weaken and tend to fracture and leak around the edges. Bacteria accumulate in these tiny crevices causing acid to build up which leads to decay.

You can help prevent tooth decay by following these tips:

Brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
Clean between your teeth daily with floss or interdental cleaner.
Eat nutritious and balanced meals and limit snacking.
Check with your dentist about the use of supplemental fluoride, which strengthens your teeth, and about use of dental sealants (a plastic protective coating) applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (where decay often starts) to protect them from decay.
Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral examination.

Sir I am suffering from mouth ulcer and it repeat after 10 12 day .plz tell me prevention step.
there are several reasons for this, few are hormonal changes, some diseases, food habits and stressful life. but the most common cause is dryness of mouth and stomach. an upset stomach, constipation or irregular bowel, acidity and dry mouth are frequently responsible for it. drink lots of water, apply dologel over ulcers. since it is a recurring problem for you, I suggest you to visit a physician soon.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
lybrate-user you are probably having mouth ulcers which are having white coating with red margins and painful the ulcers are usually due to hurry worry and curry. Stay away from these three in life .maintain good oral hygiene. Pply boroglycerine twice a day and use listerine mouthwash take tab B Complex with folic acid daily.

Bad breath or halitosis as it is caused is an unpleasant smell from the mouth of a person as he breaths out, when breathing in n out r normal essential functions, the causes can b basically decided into two a local causes b gen causes. Mostly it is due to local causes which r a poor cleaning of teeth, mouth tongue,lodgement of food in cavities , in between teeth , chewing on some thing which smells eg paan masalas,chewing gums , sound, ills hie etc. When some smells may b pleasant but stagnant u cleaned smells r always bad as the come from decaying food stuff etc it's like u r passing around a dustbin . As mouth is not dustbin keep it clean n always, the other local causes r gum infections, infection of tonsils, infection of sinuses basically maxillary sinus situated in middle face two of them behind nose.Other sinuses may also contribute but to very little extent, some nose infection may also contribute to the smells. Unclean skin like black heads type on nasal skin , very oily skin may also contribute n enhance the smells.
THE BASIC CAUSE BEING UNCLEAN BASIC REMEDY IS ALSO THE SAME KEEP CLEAN , REGULAR CHEWING , CONSUMPTION OF TOBACCO RELATED STUFF eg CHEWING SMOKING WILL ADD TO THE SMELLS. ANS AGAIN STOP BAD HABBITS, USE STANDARD TOOTH PASTE, BRUSH N USE CORRECT TECHNIQUE CONSULT DENTIST FOR DEMON. MOST OF UR PROB OF BAD BREATH WUOLD B SOLVED.
IN NEXT WILL DISCUSS OTHER CAUSES

Implants are the best solution. Other options are full mouth rehabilitation with ceramic bridging or dentures.

What Do You Do About a Severe Toothache?

Dentist, Bangalore
What Do You Do About a Severe Toothache?

Those who have experienced it would vouch for the fact that toothache is one of the worst pains. There could be times when the attack happens out of nowhere and you are crying for relief.

The tooth has 2 parts - the visible part called the crown and the invisible part called the root which is embedded in the jaw bone and covered by the gums.  

Both the crown and the root have 3 layers from inside out. The crown has enamel, dentin, and pulp. The enamel is the mineralized part of the tooth, dentin has fine sensory dentinal tubules, and the pulp receives nerve and blood supply to the tooth through a small orifice at the end of the tooth called the apex.  On the root surface, instead of enamel, there is a softer substance called cementum.  The dentin and the pulp continue through the tooth, but are thinner in the root portion of the tooth.

The mouth has the largest amount of bacteria in the body. These act on the food deposits on the tooth and produce acid which leads to breakdown of the enamel. The only symptom when enamel breakdown happens is food lodgment, and it continues till treatment ensues. Once the breakdown reaches the dentin, sensitivity sets in, and most people go for treatment then. If not, the next layer is the pulp, when there is severe pain.  This acute pulpitis causes pain in spurts and can be unbearable.

On the root surface, if there is periodontal disease and the gum line goes down, then cementum gets worn off (far more easily than enamel) and decay reaches the dentin and pulp (again faster than in the crown).

Whatever the case, the treatment would be the same:

  • Dental examination, clinical testing, and x-rays would be diagnostic. Tapping the tooth would reproduce the same pain and that is indicative of acute pulpitis
  • Antibiotics and pain killers would be given to control the pain
  • Once the infection subsides, root canal therapy is initiated.  Using the decayed portion to gain access to the root, thin instruments called reamers and files are used to clean out the pulp space completely. They are then shaped to accommodate an inert substance called gutta percha which ensures infection does not seep into the tooth again.
  • With RCT, the tooth is weakened, and therefore a crown needs to be placed. This could either be a ceramic crown or a full metal crown based on economic and esthetic reasons.

The best way to avoid this is regular visits to a dentist so that decay is identified in the early stages and treated with the minimal cost and maximum natural tooth preservation.

You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

Hi, If alignment of teeth is not proper, this problem can b solved by orthodontic(braces) treatment and if alignment is normal then u can go for veneers which covers front surface so gap won't be visible.

You have to bear this, if there is no place for tooth to erupt it is best to get it remove. Please consult an oral surgeon and he will do needful. Go for extraction of your tooth.

You have sensitivity in teeth. Start using any desensitizing paste for brushing twice daily. Apply the paste on your teeth with finger and leave it for 2 minutes. Than brush normally with ultra soft bristle brush.
