Health Tip

BDS
Dentist, Pune
Health Tip

Tooth paste:-

  • When we were growing up, everyone certainly brushed their teeth with toothpaste, and this was considered one of the good habits required to have a clean mouth and prevent cavities.
  • You may have been repeatedly advised that if you brush, floss, and go to the dentist twice a year, you will have good dental health.
  • Even so, many people discovered that regardless of their good habits, they still had dental problems such as cavities, gum bleeding, unpleasant breath, and more.
  • If toothpaste is the magic cleaner for our teeth, why is the incidence of cavities at an all-time high? And why do most brands of toothpaste come with a big warning label that reads, “may be harmful if swallowed”
  • The chemicals used in commercial toothpastes are not among those things you want in your mouth. These synthetic ingredients are more appropriate for industrial purposes than for cleaning the delicate tissues of the body or cultivating oral health.
  • There are several chemicals present in the tooth paste which can harm you in many ways.Some of them are Sodium Lauryl Sulfate,Triclosan,Hydrated Silica..But that doesn’t mean you should stop using toothpaste.This is a caution message for toddlers and adults to use it wisely.

Solutions
1) Use minimum required quantity of toothpaste which is required to brush.Use only pea sized amount of tooth paste which should be enough to perform its cleaning action.
2) Always check with your kids if they are spitting the paste and rinse the mouth thoroughly.

3) Do not prolong the brushing time more than required.

Your Tooth Is Alive

Your Tooth Is Alive

The most exciting thing about our oral cavity is your teeth are alive and not a dead bone. They grow just like your other organs and they do respond to many factors like nutrition, injury and bacteria.

It is important to understand what teeth, saliva, gums are all about. Lets have a quick overview of all the important structures in our mouth.

The anatomy:-

  • There is a structure in the center of the tooth known as pulp. This pulp contains blood vessels that provides nutrition to the tooth and nerves that carries sensation to the tooth.
  • This pulp is extended till the root tips at the bottom through root canals. This pulp is very fragile. Two protective coverings are there to en box the pulp i. E dentin which is yellow in color and it is closer to pulp. Second and outermost layer is enamel which is white in color.
  • The enamel decides the final color of tooth. Stronger the enamel structure the brighter the tooth looks.
  • Then comes the gums (gingiva), it gives the enveloping and protective covering to your tooth. It even acts as barrier and protects the intrusion of bacteria from outside. There are more than 400 species of bacteria that are trying to enter your blood stream through our mouth. Healthy gums provides the protection from all of them.
  • The roots of the tooth is attached to the jaw bone with the structure called as cementum and attachment fiber. This acts as shock absorb er and protects the tooth from biting forces.
  • Every tooth structure has its own role and importance.
  • Apart from gums dentin and other tooth structures serves important role to maintain it into a healthy state.
  • In coming blogs we will discuss the process of cavity formation and other problems in oral cavity.

Know More About Brushing!

Know More About Brushing!

Brushing is a daily routine of everyone’s life.Many among us do not know how to brush the teeth in correct manner.There are many aspects other than brushing alone which cannot be overlooked.

There are several methods and techniques which are recommended by the dentist for tooth brushing.Some of them are,

A. Charter method B. Bass method C. Stillman method D. Fones method.

These are meant for particular cases depending on his/her oral condition. Though these techniques are not meant for every individual there are certain common mistakes we must avoid while doing brushing. Today I will tell you the most common mistakes we make while brushing,

1) The wrong angle:

The angle of the brush should be 45 degree to the gum line for to have greater efficiency in cleaning. This angle ensures the safe brushing without wearing of tooth and injuries to gums.This is the first step.

Second step is moving the brush on vertical (upside down/downside upward) cleans the food debris between the two teeth. Horizontal rubbing to the front surface of tooth leads to faster tooth loss and less efficient cleaning.Repeat the same direction from both the surfaces of all the teeth.

2)The time spent on brushing:                              

 Ideal time for to spend on brushing is 3 to 7 minutes. In less than 3 minutes the hard plaque( food debris) doesn’t get soften enough to get removed by brush. Tooth paste have softening agent in it which requires at least 3 minutes to act on the food ruminants inside our mouth.       

3)The Wrong Consistency  Of  Brush:


 Have you ever looked for the consistencies while buying your tooth brush? Hard,Medium,Soft,Ultra soft. These are written on the tooth brush.Depending on your gum and teeth condition your dentist will advise you to use appropriate consistency. Using wrong consistency can injure your gums and teeth.Too hard brush will damage your gums and too soft will not do efficient cleaning.

4)Using same brush for months:                     

Do not get too attached to your tooth brush, change it periodically. If your tooth brush gets worn before two to 3 months it means you are too hard on your teeth. Change your brush every 3 to 4 months. If you follow the ideal protocol and correct brushing technique your brush should last for 3 months.

5)Not Cleaning your tongue :

Tongue cleaning is the last but one of the important part of your oral hygiene maintenance.

You can clean your tongue either by brush by giving soft strokes on the tongue or you can buy the tongue cleaner available in the market.Being a soft and rough texture it becomes good habitat for the bacteria.

Dear lybrate-user most probabaly the colour change of tooth happens due to damaged soft tissues inside the tooth. You probably need a root canal treatment to save the tooth.

Dear lybrate-user cavities if corrected in early stages can save lot of time and money for you. So find a dentist and correct it. Bleeding is never comed from teeth it comes always from gums so you probably need a good cleaning and polishing of your teeth at dental office. That ideally should reduce your yellowness too.

Dear lybrate-user you need to first treat the problem and make efforts to prevent it further from comming back again. You most probably need a good scaling and polishing from a dentist and have regular followup with the dentist atleast once in a six months.

Bad breath. Bleeding gums are the result of fragile gums which is due to improper cleaning of teeth. This is the cause in most of the patients. Get your teeth cleaned professionally once a year with your dentist and you will see the improvement.

Dear Sir, Please provide medicine name which will be better for me for bad breath.
Medicines alone will not cure your bad breath. You need to find the root cause and eradicate it. You need to do the checkup with dentist.

There are simply two options to replace completely missing teeth. One is conventional complete denture which is removable. And other is implant supported dentures. You need to consult the dentist to have different options discussed.
