Use of Fluoride Products for Teeth

Certified Implantologist, Aesthetic , BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Use of Fluoride Products for Teeth

Fluoride products for the teeth have immense importance in dentistry. Fluoride is one such chemical, the balance of which is highly required for strong and healthy teeth. However, there is an optimum amount of fluoride needed for teeth. Anything lesser than that or greater than that can cause harm and serious teeth and gum problems and tooth decay. The best option, therefore, is to get a fluoride based toothpaste or mouthwash, which will keep on providing the teeth with the optimum quantity of its daily dose of fluoride.

The benefits of fluoride products:
Before delving into the types of fluoride products available, let's have a look at the benefits of fluoride on teeth. Fluorides actually save the teeth from dental caries. It happens such that fluoride makes a certain mineral bonding on the teeth which is called fluorapatite. This is not normally found in human teeth, but when teeth damage is done, then to heal it fast this compound is needed to repair the damages. This adds to the mineral bonding in the teeth and strengthens the teeth.  

The fluoride products:
The various fluoride based products, which you may use are as follows:

  1. Fluoridated water: Fluoridating water is a simple process where the optimum amount of fluoride is mixed with drinking water so that drinking the water automatically keeps on adding fluoride to the body and keeps in contact with teeth. This therapy alone is enough and needs no more therapies generally. But not all water reserves contain this, and it's not possible to add fluorides to all water reserves. That is why the other fluoride treatments are needed.
  2. Fluoride toothpaste: This is one of the most common forms for fluoride treatments. Every common daily use toothpaste contains a 0.22 to 0.312 percent of fluoride, and this is highly beneficial to the teeth for healing of decay and fast repairs. It lets the teeth get stronger. 
  3. Mouth Rinses: Fluoride mouth rinses are an option. The sodium fluorides commonly used in the rinses are used in small amounts in the product which is used just like toothpaste and washed off.
  4. Fluoride foams and gels: The foam and gel are used when the teeth of the child or adult are under high risk of cavities. The foam or gel is rubbed on the teeth, and kept for a while and then washed off. The typical application time is 30 minutes. 
  5. Varnishes: The fluoride varnishes are just like gels, and they are also used on the tooth surface similarly. It's the choice of the dentist or patient as to which one they want to go with. Besides, these slow fluoride releasing devices, medical supplements and lozenges are also there, which slowly release the optimum amount of fluorides to keep the teeth strong and healing.

Go for scaling and polishing of teeth. This will reduce your bleeding. Use mouthwash twice daily after brushing. Maintain proper oral hygiene habits to take care of your gums.

It sounds like a lymphadenopathy which seldom develops into a serious problem but often subsides and may give acute symptoms. Better visit a dentist.

Naturally our teeth colour ranges from pearly white to pale yellow so everyone cannot hv white teeth. Get scalling n polishing done by dentist. If u r not happy with ur teeth shade later, u can get bleaching done by dentist which 'll lighten ur teeth by 2-3 shades. Alternatively u can use a teeth whitening toothpaste such as snowdent after scalling. Whitening gels used daily along with customized dental trays provided by dentist r also available in the market. Avoid heavily coloured foods, tea n coffee, cool drinks, smoking n tobacco products as they stain teeth.

Hi lybrate-user the milk molar teeth are supposed to hold on till age 10-11 years at least. They wl help your daughter to chew well n get nutrition from the food she eats in her growing years. Loosing these teeth early will cause serious effects on nutrition as well as chewing pattern. If jaw muscles get into wrong chewing pattern at this age it wl be difficult to restore later in life. Do consult a friendly dentist to allay her fear n proceed to restore these teeth. Thanks

My inner walls of front tooth broke few days back. And little bit of side wall also. It looked like there I gap between front tooth. And tooth seems like there is black spot on it after inner wall is broken. Kindly suggest remedies

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
The tooth is breaking most probably because of a decay that is gradually progressing and weakening the tooth structure. You will need either a filling or rct depending on the depth of the decay. The gap can also then be covered either with the filling, a veneer or all-ceramic crowns.

Hi i am 25 year old n my teeth are bleeding when I do brushing.

BDS
Dentist,
Bleeding is always from gums and not from teeth. Due to black deposits (tartar) near gumline you get bleeding gums. Now what we can do to solve your problem? there is procedure called scaling (cleaning of teeth on machine. Which would take care of your problem completely.

You will need surgery for either one or both jaws depending on how complex it is. Surgery alone may not sort out the issue as the teeth will also need braces to correct the position before or after surgery for correct treatment. Cost depends on the doctor, hospital and equipment /plates screws used. A private consultation would be appropriate for this. X rays need to be seen.

Hello, stains on teeth is because of tea and tobacco. You need to visit the dentist and get a scaling and polishing done. Brush twice a day, rinse after every meal and floss regularly. You can go for home whitening gels day and night for teeth whitening. Consult your dentist for it.

What is remedy for mouth bittering for 01 years old child?

CERTIFIED ORAL IMPLANTOLOGIST, NON-RESIDENT J.R. IN DEPTT. OF ORTHODONTICS, BDS
Dentist,
If it is related to thumb sucking, you can apply a piece of gauge over the thumb of child dipped in betadine or it can be thrush cuased by candida albicans thrush is usually treated with a prescription medicine called nystatin which is given four times a day. The dosage is 0. 5ml to each side of the child' s mouth if they are under 30 days old, and 1 ml to each side of their mouth for older infants and toddlers. Treatment is continued for about 7 to 10 days and at least 3 days after you no longer see any signs of thrush. If your child' s infection isn' t quickly improving after a few days, you may want to use a gauze to directly rub the medication on the white patches. Although your child will likely swallow the dose of nystatin, since it isn' t absorbed, it is the direct contact with the yeast that combats the infection. Fluconazole (diflucan) is another prescription medication that can be used as an alternative to nystatin. It has the benefit of once a day dosing, but it is more expensive than nystatin and is usually used as a second line treatment, when nystatin doesn' t work. Keep in mind that in one small study, comparison of fluconazole and nystatin oral suspensions for treatment of oral candidiasis in infants" fluconazole was shown to be superior to nystatin suspension for the treatment of oral thrush in otherwise healthy infants"

If cavity is not deep or there is no pain and sensitivity in the decayed tooth then go for restoration (filling) but if cavity is deep or there is pain and sensitivity in the decayed tooth then first get the x-ray done of that tooth and send me the x-ray picture for further diagnosis.

Tooth ache since one week. I had shown to a Doctor he told me I will require a root canal. Is it painful?
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. Root canal treatment is performed after giving local anaesthesia injection.So it is not painful during the procedure.Once the LA effect gets over,your painkillers will help you to overcome the pain.Donot fear of RCT.
