Detailed description on Tooth decay

Hi I'm Dr. Vikash, an Endodontist and Senior Consultant at Ethical Dental and Health Care, Sector-1004, Noida. Today I'm going to discuss about the most common disease in the world, that is Tooth Decay.

Inside everyone's mouth there is a war going on. Our tooth is under attack by various bacterias. These bacterias grow a layer called plaque. It is an invisible battle because bacterias are of same color as our tooth and they hide in hard to reach areas of our mouth like gum line and between tooth. Plaque bacteria attack on sugary tooth. They turn sugar into acid and acid into enamel. This is where our body fights back thanks to saliva. Saliva is full of minerals that replaces the tooth structures dissolved away by plaque acids. It takes about 20mins for the minerals to get back in balance after a meal. But if more minerals are taken away than replaced then enamel collapses and bacteria can get into tissue below. This causes cavity and the tooth is in trouble.

Bacteria will start rotting the dent in the enamel causing tooth decay. WHen decay hits sensitive area you get tooth decay. By now enamel is completely undermined. Although only a dentist can remove bacteria from cavity but you can play your own part in the battle. If you cut off in between meal snacks and regularly remove bacterias with brush and floss, then by this you will be helping your body win the war against tooth decay.

For more information about dental problems you can contact me on Lybrate or walk into my dental clinic, Ethical Dental and Health Care, Sector-1004, Noida.

For bleeding gums, go for scaling and polishing of teeth. For cavity, get your teeth x-rayed to determine the extent of decay. Depending on that, you can go for filling of cavities with tooth coloured cement with or without root canal treatment.

Orofacial Pain - Sources and Symptoms

Dentist, Mumbai
Orofacial Pain - Sources and Symptoms

An unpleasant experience which not only disturbs the usual routine of a person but also the psychological peace and causes extreme discomfort is called pain. When this pain involves the region above the neck, below the orbitomeatal line and in front of the ear is called as orofacial pain.

Multiple causes for orofacial pain may exist and the symptoms may include such diverse findings as headaches, neck pain, ear pain, dental pain, facial burning or stabbing sensations, and jaw joint pain.

The complaints may either develop gradually or have a rapid onset and can originate from musculoskeletal, neurovascular or neuropathic causes.

Sources of orofacial pain may include:

  1. Trigeminal Neuropathy – ant damage or degeneration to the trigeminal nerves that supplies mainly to the facial structures causes the orofacial pain. This is commonly referred as trigeminal neuralgia.

  2. Neurovascular Disorder – migraine is the most common neurovascular disorder that causes the radiating pain to the mouth eyes and other facial muscles.

  3. Temporomandibular Disorder – the major cause of orofacial pain is the temporo mandibular joint disorder which causes pain in the lower jaws. Orofacial pain may also be caused by any temporo mandibular joint surgeries and due to failure of joint replacement surgery of the jaw.

  4. Burning Mouth Syndrome – this condition is caused due to nerve damage, lack of adequate saliva production, fungal infection, certain medications and also noted for patients with diabetes. Orofacial pain is also noted in burning mouth syndrome.

  5. Cervicalgia – pain due to spinal cord injury, damage to spinal nerve, muscle and ligaments may radiate to face and cause orofacial pain.

  6. Trauma – accident is the most common cause of temporomandibular disorder and other spinal disorder that causes orofacial pain.

  7. Sleep disorders – sleep disorders include grinding or clenching of the teeth during sleep may also cause orofacial pain.

Symptoms

Though orofacial pain is caused by several factors, its symptoms includes dental pain, ear pain, neck pain, headache, pain in the jaw joint and stabbing sensation over the face. Some patients may also experience burning sensation over the face. Other symptoms include dizziness, insomnia, tinnitus (abnormal ringing or roaring sound in ears), poor muscle coordination, abnormal itching over the face and neck and tingling sensation. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dentist.

How can I know that my jaw muscles have become big due to teeth grinding? how can I know I grind my teeth or not?
If your muscles are visible from outside. Like kind of bulging near jaws then you r a night grinder. And if you feel bit pain while getting up in morning then it's a symptom of night grinding, more over teeth grinding noise can be detected easily during sleep.

Approximately 4-6 gms of sodium is sufficient for your daily needs.This equals about 2 tsps of common salt. 2-3 tsps of sugar can suffice daily, however this should include any sweets, dessert, and your tea, coffee etc. Try to avoid free sugar intake.... instead have dried fruits & fresh fruits.

Experiencing a burning sensation in your mouth or on your tongue without? hot food? to blame? there is a condition that can cause your mouth to burn for no apparent reason. Burning mouth syndrome, or burning tongue syndrome, is an annoyingly painful problem that may have you feeling a scalding sensation without a source for its cause. This painful burning sensation may linger for a long time, be constant or come and go. In many cases, the burning builds during the day and dies down at night. The group most commonly afflicted are middle to older aged women. Your burning mouth or tongue syndrome might come with other symptoms on top of a burning sensation, such as: dry mouth bad taste ~ bitter, metallic tongue tip tingling, numbness numbness, tingling in your mouth possible causes of your burning mouth or tongue include: acid reflux medication malnutrition food allergies nerve damage oral candidiasis anxiety, depression hormonal changes ~ menopause dentures ~ ill-fitting, material allergy dry mouth ~ sj?gren? s syndrome, diabetes, thyroid problems for many, the exact cause of their burning sensation symptoms isn? t found. Your mouth burning treatment may depend on the cause of symptoms, provided you can discover this. Thus, treating underlining cause usually resolves your burning symptoms. Otherwise, unidentified cause for burning mouth or tongue syndrome treatment is geared toward associated pain relief. Some natural healthy ideas that may assist in this challenge: sip water suck on ice no alcohol, tobacco chew sugarless gum avoid hot, spicy foods brush with baking soda and water use capsaicin (hot pepper) mouth rinses do not use alcohol containing mouthwashes reduce consumption of acidic foods ~ citrus.

Hello Lybrate user, before planning treatment for misaligned teeth, a doctor needs to take impression of upper and lower teeth, few xrays and photographs. Only after analysing them a doctor decides the treatment plan. Charges and time needed for completion of treatment can only be decided by looking at the severity of condition. So visit your nearby orthodontist and let him decide which treatment suits you the best. On average in india braces will cost you from 30 to 60k and the time period varies from 12 to 24 months. Hope this helps.

Implant Dentistry

MDS - Periodontology and Oral Implantology, BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Implant Dentistry

Tooth loss is a challenge for both the patient and the dentist. Patient has to deal with reduced chewing efficiency and altered appearance. The dentist, on the contrary, is faced with restoring the lost tooth to the maximum natural extent possible, functionally and structurally.

The fixed dentures came close with their ability to providing fixed teeth that were stable and aesthetically appealing. However, there was one big disadvantage, the adjacent teeth that were being used as abutment were reduced in size and therefore strength though they could be perfectly normal teeth.

In an effort to avoid this, the dental community started looking at options, the result of which was implant. Not just replacing the crown part of the tooth, even the root portion of the tooth is replaced here.
A biocompatible material, titanium, is put into the tooth to serve as the root. Titanium is strong, light, biocompatible (does not cause autoimmune reactions in the surrounding tissues) and most importantly osseointegrated (fuses to the surrounding bone). Once placed as the root, it gets absorbed into the bone after a period of about 2 to 6 months. Then, a crown or a denture is literally built on this root to simulate the natural appearance as close as possible. This provides not just the complete natural tooth structure but also provides support to the surrounding tissues like the gums and the cheeks.

Implant dentistry is a perfect example of teamwork including surgeons to operate and place the bone, prosthodontists to do the crown or the bridge, a periodontist to manage the gums health, and a lab technician who can do the finest job on the crowns or the bridges.

Types of implants:

  1. Three common types include: Single tooth replacement: In cases where a single tooth is lost, the implant would be one root that is allowed to fuse to the bone and then a crown is placed over it.
  2. Fixed multiple teeth replacements: If more than one tooth is lost, then bridges are fabricated by placing one or more implants and then custom-made crowns are placed over these implants.
  3. Removable implant supported complete denture: If all the lower teeth are missing, implants could be placed at pre-identified locations and then a complete denture fabricated over it. This is commonly done in lower jaws as stability is always a cause for concern.

Contraindications:
The success of the implant requires good bone health. The most common contraindications would be patients with chronic diseases like poorly controlled diabetes, cancer in the line of jaws, chronic smoking, or poor periodontal health.

However, if managed well, even these patients can have implants after a detailed assessment by the dental team.
