ORAL BRUSH BIOPSY

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
ORAL BRUSH BIOPSY

Oralcdx (oralcdx laboratories, inc. Suffern, ny), the oral brush biopsy with computer aided analysis, is a diagnostic tool that identifies dysplasia in common oral spots that often have no suspicious clinical features. In comparison to exfoliative cytology, the brush biopsy technique collects cells from the full thickness of the oral epithelium. An oral brush biopsy is a chair-side, painless, easy to perform a test that can be used to identify any suspicious lesion including common small white and red oral lesions to rule out dysplastic features. Since most oral lesions are benign in nature, most test results are likely to be benign. Almost 10% of all cases usually turn out to be abnormal. Based on the results, the laboratory advises specific guidance on these abnormal cases sometimes recommending scalpel biopsy, observation or retesting.

Sensitivity In Teeth

BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Sensitivity In Teeth

Is the taste of ice cream or a sip of hot coffee sometimes a painful experience for you? Does brushing or flossing make you wince occasionally? If so, you may have sensitive teeth.

Possible causes include:

In healthy teeth, a layer of enamel protects the crowns of your teeth—the part above the gum line. Under the gum line a layer called cementum protects the tooth root. Underneath both the enamel and the cementum is dentin. 
Dentin is less dense than enamel and cementum and contains microscopic tubules (small hollow tubes or canals). When dentin loses its protective covering of enamel or cementum these tubules allow heat and cold or acidic or sticky foods to reach the nerves and cells inside the tooth. Dentin may also be exposed when gums recede. The result can be hypersensitivity.

Sensitive teeth can be treated. The type of treatment will depend on what is causing the sensitivity. Your dentist may suggest one of a variety of treatments:

  • Desensitizing toothpaste. This contains compounds that help block transmission of sensation from the tooth surface to the nerve, and usually requires several applications before the sensitivity is reduced.
  • Fluoride gel. An in-office technique which strengthens tooth enamel and reduces the transmission of sensations.
  • A crown, inlay or bonding. These may be used to correct a flaw or decay that results in sensitivity.
  • Surgical gum graft. If gum tissue has been lost from the root, this will protect the root and reduce sensitivity.
  • Root canalIf sensitivity is severe and persistent and cannot be treated by other means, your dentist may recommend this treatment to eliminate the problem.

Proper oral hygiene is the key to preventing sensitive-tooth pain. Ask your dentist if you have any questions about your daily oral hygiene routine or concerns about tooth sensitivity.

Sir, my problem is mouth ulcers. I want to know whether it is due to excessive use of pain killers that I have taken during spinal injury?

ENT Specialist, Visakhapatnam
Might be. Might be not. But mouth ulcers are seen in people undergoing stress. If you have stopped eating vegetables and fruits regularly, then it may add to the problem. Eat lot of amla, guava, lemon, leafy vegetables, badam, cashew n other dry fruits. Maybe even try some vitamin syrup. Your ulcers will slowly resolve with you stress dear brother. God bless you get well soon.

Do you have any habits like betel nut chewing or consumption of tobacco? if yes I would suggest you to stop your habits as they can also lead to oral cuts, lesions. Please show a dentist in person as further clinical examination is required. Till then avoid eating spicy, hot food, avoid citrus fruits like lemons, oranges, kiwi, strawberry etc.

I am 26 years old and have a gap between my front two teeth which is very prominent. Also I have a gums showing smile. I have used braces but the space came back. I am getting married soon and have about 9 months time in hand to correct this gap. Need expert suggestions.

Hi , from what I read I understand that you have undergone orthodontic treatment (braces) and relapse has occurred. Since you are getting married soon, I would advise you to go for a cosmetic treatment like veneers and crown lengthening that will not only close the gaps but reduce your gummy smile. However, this can only be planned after seeing you clinically. You can approach us for the same.

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - have your dentures aligned as needed. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

I would advise you to consult your dentist as soon as possible. If your tooth is carious and you are experiencing severe pain, there is a possibility that the pulp of your tooth is exposed, which can be diagnosed only after proper check up. Kindly show it to your dentist at the earliest. If you will delay it much, it might need to be extracted.

Take these simple steps for a healthy mouth and a winning smile. Limit Sugary Foods and Drinks. Bacteria in your mouth feed on sugar from foods and drinks. Eat Foods That Protect Enamel. Calcium in food counters acids in your mouth that cause decay. Avoid Over-Brushing. Use Fluoride.
