Create a Pain Free Future For Your Next Generation

“Brush Kar lo nahin toh doctor injection de dega"

“Please Chocolate mat khaana tumhare daant sad jayenge"

Remember as children if we wouldn’t brush,the myriad threats we would face from doctors,injections or even the fear of tooth extractions would suffice to make anything to do with teeth-brushing or treatments absolutely dreadful!

My childhood was spent avoiding brushing at night and sneaking in sweets and my only dental visits were for braces and they started of on an unpleasant note with 4 extractions and that’s the only memory I have when someone says Dentist!!

Until I became one and started realizing that we could affect this change ONE SMILE at a time.Dentistry has changed drastically if we are willing to adapt to that change. National Children’s Dental Health Month should be more than a calendar month.Let’s make a positive change for our future generations.

Here are 5 key factors to eliminating fear in a child’s mind.

1. No More Threats

If you’re a parent,teacher,caregiver or even a doctor stop threatening.Start at home by eliminating threats from your vocabulary.

We transmit our fears unknowingly to our young ones it’s time we became conscious of the impact our words have on their psyche.

2. Make It Fun

As parents we are diligent in our research to figure what’s the best way my child should brush or the best product to use but we seldom look into how to make it more fun.We just impose brushing and expect the child to follow suit.

We often advise parents that making your child’s brushing activity fun by using apps,games,gadgets and music can go a long way in their dental health for life.

So don’t stress about what to brush with but rather how should your child be taking up to brushing and oral hygiene in general.

3.Research a Painfree specialist

The term family dentist is totally passé there is no such concept anymore.With a wide variety of specialisations and recent advances just one person is not expected to handle the dental needs of your entire family.Pediatric dentists are specialized to work on children and there adult specialists who treat different dental maladies be it your root canals,gum problems,teeth alignment and even teeth replacement.

Be sure to choose a compassionate care provider whose prime concern is to ensure that pain should be the last thing you or your child are feeling in the chair.

4. Memorable First Visit

It’s a special day when a child visits a dentist for the first time. It can be the start of a life long relationship with the dental care provider and even their concept in general with their own dental health.

The doctor must ensure they take all the measures to make a positive impact on the patients mind always maintaining an encouraging tone rather than an intimidating authoritative attitude.

A variety of exciting surprises can be prepared for your child’s dental visit based on their age so that they walk out smiling.

5. Rewards

If your child was brave enough to go through a dental visit and battle the demons that we have so meticulously planted in their minds,let us at least make sure they’re rewarded starting from the clinic itself and even back at home.

Be it their favorite thing to eat or a small present that they have been vying for try and create a positive memory association or rewarding good behavior at the dentist.

This will ensure that your child is ready for the next visit.

Let me summarize with every parents checklist for their child’s healthy dental future

If you have

  • refrained from threatening or bullying your child into brushing,
  • he finds it a fun activity,
  • has been to Painfree expert and

had an excellent first dental visit with

  • a reward commemorating his behavior

need I say you’ve done your best!

I have a cronic problem which i am facing since last 5years. My mouth diameter is reduced so much in that i can not even pass my single finger. In short,the space between my upper and lower teeth is reduced to the 10 mm(1cm). I have been chewing gutkha since i was 18 years old and right now i am almost 42years old. In past two years i got two big ulcers behind my molar tooth and i had done biopsy of all two ulcers. Both reports were normal. One dentist suggested me to remove ulcer by laser and i was gone through that treatment. But at present,my problem become so worse that i can not eat a thing bigger than 1 cm in diameter. One oral surgeon suggest me to do an oral flap surgery. So my question is that will it be benificial to me? Is there any other option rathere than gone through the surgery. I am afaid of such big surgery. Once i was taken to the operation theatet,but my blood pressure became lower so much and surgery could not be performed. And tell me something about flap surgery. How long will it take to complete surgery? Since how long i will have to maintain certain care taking steps of my buccal mucosa? And what is the success rate of such surgery?

I am really sorry to hear about your condition. Your condition is known "oral sub mucous fibrosis" in which fibres form in the oral submucosa & reduce the mouth opening. When it's gets severe the mouth opening keeps reducing & there is burning sensation in mouth & food pipe even when u eat mild non spicy food. This condition is pre cancerous & not cancer, so you should really get yourself treated before its too late. There are injections to cure this fibre but it's given in mild to moderate cases. In severe cases surgery is unavoidable. In surgery the fibres formed inside your cheeks & lips will be cut so that your mouth opening will improve. You might also be given those injections to dissolve the fibres & prevent them from forming again. Do not be afraid of the surgery, it's for your benefit. A normal doctor will not perform this surgery. It is done by an oral surgeon who will not give you false advice. So have faith in your surgeon & go ahead. All the best.

I have been suffering from gum infection and pain and I cant eat hard food please suggest medicine to releive from gum pain.

PG Fellowship In Microdentistry, BDS
Dentist, Thane
Gum pain is usually due to presence of tartar around the teeth and gums, it is suggested that you get a periodic cleaning done and if required medicine will be prescribed by your treating dentist upon examination. For temporary relief you can use brufen 400 mg but visit a dentist soon and get the required treatment done.

B complex tablets are a supplement to your diet and they cannot alone solve any problem of general or jaw health. It will prove helpful only to the extent that you have a deficiency.
