2 Biggest Dental Mistakes that Indians Make!

2 Biggest Dental Mistakes that Indians Make!
2 Biggest dental mistakes that Indians make!

Your dental health chiefly depends on the way you care for your teeth and gums. Most Indians consider maintaining oral health a very simple thing, and end up committing quite a few dental blunders as a result. As a result, a whopping 95% of the population in India suffers from gum disease! (Source: National Oral Health Programme)

Read on to find which of these dental mistakes you are making and how to avoid them.

1. Not flossing your teeth
Flossing plays a significant role in getting rid of sticky bacteria or plaque from your teeth. The acid generated by dental plaque is the chief cause behind oral cavities, gum irritation and various other gum diseases. Flossing is essential for cleaning the space between your teeth and in turn eliminating most of the bacteria present in your mouth. This is the very reason it should not be ignored.However in India, well over 70% of the population does not floss.

2. Not regularly visiting the dentist
Most Indians have the habit of not visiting the dentist at regular intervals due to laziness, a forgetful nature or fear. Quite a few hold the common belief that if they aren’t experiencing a toothache, they don’t need to visit the dentist at all. Only 2% of Indians visit the dentist. This often puts you in greater risks of developing a gum disease, which may require painful and costly treatment in the future. So, make it a priority to visit the dentist at least once every year to ensure better dental health.

The type of treatment you have for cavity in tooth will depend on the cause of the decay, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. • If your cavity is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. • If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection.

You can start your work out regimen right away, it Would not be effected Start chewing when you feel your tissues are no more tender (no pain on touching that area) which usually takes about 7-10 days Initial healing takes place in about 5-7 days in which your Major discomfort is gone, for complete healing it might take upto 21 days.

There are several cause for your problem (nocturnal bruxism) and stress is one of them. Now instead of discussing those complex medical terms like occlusal disharmony, functional disharmony TMJ dysfunction etc. Here is the solution, you meet a dentist and get a night guard fabricated. You must be aware of your other general body problems like diabetes, hypertension, liver or kidney related problems which can contributes to your night grinding habit. Once actual problem is not diagnosed it can only be prevented by night guards. For further details you can connect with us. THANK YOU.

Hi I am interested in sensitive tooth treatment. Also wants to go for tooth whitening.

Hi I am interested in sensitive tooth treatment. Also wants to go for tooth whitening.
A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (Sensodyne Tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

You need to consult a dentist for your scaling. And if the odor is not because of oral hygiene problems than a systemic cause needs to be found out.

M 25 years old and my tongue is infection like sore and thrush. How to cure from this infection. Please tell me medicine.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Oral thrush is a fungal infection which occurs due to dry mouth, uncontrolled diabetes and weak immune system with debilitating disease or patient on corticosteroids. You may need fluconazole & renal safety dosage of amphotericin b (iv drugs to be used only with the advice of oral & maxillofacial surgeons). Kindly consult an oral & maxillofacial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need candid ointment until then. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

While cementing your tooth got traumatized. So teeth pain may be due to various reasons like infection, sensitivity or trauma. If your teeth is decayed it is better to get it filled or treated by a dentist. If you are opting for root canal treatment do not forget to get a crown on the effected tooth. If you want to go for only medicinal treatment so let me tell you only medicine are not going to be very effective untill you get this treated by a dentist.

I' m getting some smell from my mouth after brushing properly. Do I have any problem in my mouth or in my stomach?

A.C.C.I - Accredited and Certified Course in Implantology, MDS - Pediatric & Preventive Dentistry, BDS
Dentist, Jammu
Good afternoon , in majority of the cases the bad smell in the mouth is due to deposits - tartar ( scientifically: calculus) or decayed teeth, but in some cases if on clinical examination by a good dental surgeon these are not found - then we recommend a check up by the gastroenterologist to rule out any stomach or digestion problems. Such awful smell from the mouth can also be attributed to nasal infection or sinusitis or bad throat - so if required the ent also gets to play an important role in its elimination.

Hello lybrate-user, A toothpaste with fluoride is recommended and a soft bristle brush is a must Avoid sweetners, tea,coffee Take up good oral health care regimen everyday: brush twice daily, gargle after meals You can take out some time and go for a teeth cleaning procedure which can make you’re gums healthier.
