Your Tooth Is Alive

BDS
Dentist, Pune
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.

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.

Dental awareness is what we are lacking in general population. We generally have the tendency to assume that if there is a pain, then only there is a problem. But this is not the case. Infact, painless conditions are more dangerous than the painful ones.The one who comes silently has more potential to distroy.

Dental health is the most neglected health domain among the population. We care more for our vital organs like heart, eyes, liver, kidney, and so on. But when it comes to teeth, we just neglect it either by self medications or some advised tooth powder or tooth paste.

We need to realize that the mouth is an entrance of our body and a healthy mouth is utmost important to keep the body and mind healthy. Simply to give an example - if you have garbage at your door the house cannot be cleaned no matter how many times u mop or broom it.

Atleast a bi-annual checkup for yourself and your kids ensures the dental health is in place. Dental treatments are no more scary these days. New advancements in the field of dentistry have made the treatment very comfortable. And lastly, the early you go, the faster and predictable results you get. That saves your time and a lot of money.

I am 41 and diabetic for five years I feel as if my teeth not strongly rooted now a days.

BDS
Dentist, Pune
Loosening of teeth is due to loss of bone structure which holds your tooth at place. If your diabetics is under control you can go for perio treatment to make the teeth better than they are at present. Consult online or visit your dentist to discuss your general health and dental health.

Tfn implanted two years back. Implant broken (proximal end) one year back by itself. Advised revision surgery. Age 57 years.

Dentist, Pune
Implant breakage is uncommon problem in dentistry. But still there are cases of implant breakage. Probably the manufacturing defect from the company can cause it. Many reputed implants comes with warranty ranging from 5 years to 20 years these days. Ask your dentist if its in warranty. And next time chose implant from reputed company like nobel biocare.

There are many reasons for bad breath. Mouth odor, also called halitosis, is a common condition and sometimes a source of embarrassment. Bad breath, also called halitosis, is a common condition and sometimes a distressing source of embarrassment. Frequently, people aren? t even aware there? s a problem. While there are many causes for bad breath, it most commonly results from a lack of good oral hygiene. Daily brushing and flossing and regular dental checkups and cleanings are the best prevention for bad breath. However, when bad breath persists, despite good oral health, there may be other reasons for mouth odor and a consultation with your dentist or physician is necessary. A dry mouth may be the culprit. Good saliva flow cleanses the teeth and tissues, and is essential to keeping the mouth healthy and in balance. A common side effect of many medications is reduced saliva flow, which results in a dry mouth (also called xerostomia) and increased mouth odor. Dry mouth may also be caused by other problems involving the salivary glands or from continuously breathing through the mouth.

I am a 38 yr old female. I have gaps in betwen my teeth (lower and upper front teeth) becos of wich food particles get clogged. I want some treatment to close them and enhance my smile. Please suggest.

BDS
Dentist, Pune
The gap among the teeth can be treated with orthodontic treatment where you have to wear the braces or aligners and the other option you have to do the cosmetic makeover of the front tooth by laminates or veneers. But that depends on the amount of gap you have. If you can share your pics I can advice you in better way.

I am suffering from gum bleeding since last three months. And also badbreath problem suffering me a lot. So kindly suggest me about the treament.

BDS
Dentist, Pune
The best bleeding gums treatment is to remove from your teeth the plaque bacteria that causes gum disease. When dental plaque builds up, it turns into tartar, a hard, sticky substance that adheres to your teeth. Without regular teeth cleanings, dental tartar can become a breeding ground for even more plaque, which can creep below the gum line and lead to an infection that causes bleeding gums. Technically speaking, bad breath is a biological reaction characterized by the release of volatile sulfur into the atmosphere. Bad breath may also contain hydrogen sulfide and methyl marcaptan. Dry mouth gum problems or cavities are some culprits behind the bad breath. Consult with the dentist and discuss.
