Guidelines of Teeth Whitening (2012-11-29 09:54) Methods And Treatment of Teeth Whitening:[1] Dazzling Smiles seem to be within everybody’s reach, thanks to the strong [2]teeth-whitening business. 5
  6. 6. There are many reasons to choose that the [3]teeth need a little whitening. Heavy tea, java and soft drinks consumers often discover their teeth developing spots and harm as do cigarette tobacco users. Adverse reactions aren’t common when these products are used as instructed, but they can happen. Before you board on do-it-yourself whitening routine, here are some teeth whitening safety ways to keep the [4]oral cavity area and gum area healthier. Here, you will discover many ways to help you keep the teeth white-colored and decide what technique of whitening is the best for you, in situation spots do grow. There are a few typical ways to lighten up the teeth or avoid them from discoloring and a form of fre- quent [5]whitening in some situations. Here, I’ll record a few techniques for organic house solutions you can do at house. Methods of Teeth Whitening 1. First of all, the obvious one of the making frequent sessions for cleaning the teeth is first on the record. 2. Many individuals let this fall, but it’s important to not only get on a frequent schedule with the [6]dentist’s workplace setting up future sessions but also having them call and tell you to come in. 3. Avoid water with any added fluoride or using tooth insert with fluoride as it’s been revealed that it can tarnish or dirt the teeth. 4. Some fruits and veggies such as strawberries are excellent tooth whitening. Bananas can be applied on teeth or crushed up in an insert and applied on. 5. Baking soft drinks has lengthy been used for oral whitening. 6. Many types of toothpaste have been baking soda in their ingredients because of its effectiveness. 7. Before effort any at house whitening tasks, seek advice from with your oral expert about the teeth. 8. If you have any issues with [7]gum area or oral cavities, whitening techniques bought over the reverse can have a negative impact on the oral cavity area. 9. Tell your oral expert what you want to try to ask for a green mild before you start. 10. Many organic house solutions for whitening the teeth are excellent but there are those that are harmful to the teeth. 11. Know what you are getting into before you include organic house solutions that you know nothing about. 12. Use a whitening mouth wash. 13. It may take months to see outcomes using this technique, but it does help. 14. Make sure you are aware of any part results or techniques that may cause a decrease to the teeth eventually. 15. Whitening mouthwashes include [8]bleach, which is known to teeth whiter. 16. Make sure to brush and get flossing the teeth at least twice a day. 17. To get better outcomes from any organic teeth whitening process add a little vinegar. 6
  7. 7. 18. Vinegar is a fantastic way to create Baking Soda, Lemon Juice, Vinegar and other household whitening techniques more efficient. 19. The vinegar works as a sort of primer for your teeth that will help any whitener to sink in and have a stronger effect. Teeth Bleaching Tooth whitening’s or whitening has become one of the most popular aesthetic [9]dental treatments. 1. Professionally applied in the Dental office: Many dental practitioners consider this whitening process the most secure [10]Cosmetic process available these days. It is the same process used in dental offices. Professional tooth whitening has been used successfully on healthier teeth since 1986, with no obvious threats. However, there have been situations of over-bleaching teeth. There have also been some reviews that tooth enameled [11]dentistry can be momentarily affected with extended whitening. 1. Consumer-purchased/over-the-counter (OTC): This is an expert program available direct from an real [12]dental lab, not an over-the-counter item. Dentists also purchase this same program from us. This program generates amazing outcomes. We also provide a beginner kit which does not require that opinions be sent back to the lab. 1. Dentist-prescribed: Dentist provides laser device whitening or power whitening with a light. [13]Laser’s whitening as initially offered by dental practitioners included real laser device mild therapies. However real laser treatment is hardly ever used these days because the high temperature of the laser device caused tooth harm. Instead, [14]dental practitioners use a curing light. This process includes putting whitening gel on teeth, propping the mouth open and using a treating light for an hour or so while in the oral expert chair. 1. Home-use: Select a item in the middle, and if the teeth bear the teeth paste (and you want more efficient whitening), move up to a tooth insert with 20 % bleach. Whether you select to lighten up the teeth in the comfort of your own house, or as you relax at the dentist’s workplace, you will no doubt be pleased with the outcomes. 1. If you are about to have a [15]root canal ask about internal whitening. 1. Many individuals think that it only takes once to get their [16]teeth glistening white-colored and give up when the once does not perform. 1. These products use peroxides that act as a whitening broker for the teeth. Be sure to look at the quantity of bleach in the teeth insert, typically the focus is between ten and thirty percent. Remedies of Natural Teeth Whitening 1. Most organic house solutions do not have side effects, but if you are suffering from gum problems or teeth sensitiveness, some solutions may not be appropriate. 7
  8. 8. 2. If you are using any type of house made solutions to whiten up the teeth, you need to use ultimate care. Some individuals use orange or everyday, and this actually will end up giving rise to more harm. It is better to buy an over the against kit that will [17]whiten your teeth. 3. If you remember the humor about ”peroxide blondes” you won’t be surprised to learn that bleach is a organic whitening broker. In this situation, it strikes persistent oral spots by disheartening their molecules. 4. Simply rinses your mouth as soon as possible after eating may go a lengthy way in avoiding java, carbonated drinks and other discoloration agents from staying in the oral cavity. 5. A much more secure choice is to eat an apple. Apple are fine as a snacks, but not instead for dental cleanliness like cleaning and flossing. And any solving that might happen is the result of an apple’s minor quantity of naturally-occurring malic acidity only you had to eat so many apples to see any difference that you are running the risk of acid-based harm again. 6. When you pick a teeth whitening technique that requires oral guidance, you can be sure your oral expert will value your [18]dental health before continuing, adding a second level of care and warning to avoid harm or pain. Treatment of Teeth Whitening 1. At The [19]Dental Medical center, we aim to offer you a huge selection of oral therapies, designed to meet your individual requirements. Having a good and healthier looking smile, amazing grin can take years off of your appearance. Because of deterioration, the ageing, and lifestyle choices that we create can all take a cost on the color of our teeth. 2. Talk to a visual oral expert about whitening the teeth. 3. You can discuss to your oral expert about other options that might be helpful. 4. An excellent at home tooth whitening solution is using dry bay simply leaves and orange skins that have been dry. Basically smash these substances together and add some water on your tooth sweep. 5. In addition to good [20]dentistry, use tooth paste and mouth wash that contains whiteners. 6. Dark dull, black or reddish-brown teeth where the teeth has experienced a severe stress. This can be helped by a root canal whitening therapy but often do not reply to teeth whitening therapies. 7. Do not expect any kind of teeth whitening techniques to perform initially, even whitening them. 8. Swallowing even a track quantity of the substances and substances in these packages is enough of potentially cause harm to the child. 9. Those individuals with [21]shrinking gum area need to understand that teeth whitening therapy can increase the gum area and cause level of sensitivity. 10. The black dull or darkish groups across teeth are difficult to lighten up, and you may need a mixture of at-[22]dentist therapy followed by house teeth whitening therapy to successfully reduce these spots.

  10. 10. 1.2 December Why your Tooth needs Root Canal Treatment? (2012-12-26 06:26) Causes , Symptoms And Treatment of Root Canal:[1] If there is one [2]dental care that many individuals be familiar with of but essentially misunderstand, it’s the [3]root canal. A variety of sufferers are uncertain about what it includes, how it’s conducted, and why it’s actually quite beneficial and necessary for ongoing oral wellness. It all has to do with the structure of a [4]tooth. That’s why we’d like to take a second right now to go over the fundamentals of [5]root canal treatment. When you fulfill with an experienced aesthetic oral professional in [6]Cary Dentist, you’ll be able to talk about these issues at higher duration. Definition of Root Canal ”[7]Root canal” is the phrase used to explain the [8]organic cavity within the center of the teeth. The pulp or pulp stage is the smooth area within the root canal. The [9]teeth sensors can be found within the root canal. Structure of the Tooth Within each tooth is a pulp stage. This pulp stage brings down through the origins into the sensors of the [10]teeth. When the tooth becomes seriously corroded or broken leading to a violation of the pulp stage, that’s when [11]dental practitioners in the state of Tennessee perform a root canal. Causes of a Root Canal A lot of individuals think that bad cleanliness is the cause of all [12]tooth issues. This is only one cause of root canal. • When the corrosion moves along to the pulp stage of the tooth, you will usually feel understanding when you drink something hot or cold. This does not instantly indicate [13]root canal. • Sometimes just getting the corrosion eliminated and hole filled manages the problem. • If the corrosion has developed too far, parasites can get into the pulp of the teeth and cause a [14]disease, better known as an abscess in the cuboids at the end of the main of your teeth and can be seen on x-ray. • There are no signs as [15]anxiety can die gradually eventually. This is one purpose dental practitioners take x-rays during your schedule washing sessions. 10
  11. 11. Cause of Root Canal: Is from old steel stuffing that will get smaller over time and corrosion starts beneath it unnoticed until you feel[16] pain or temperature understanding. Second Most Common Cause of Root Canal is Tooth Fracture: • Due to tightening or [17]crushing your tooth, eating difficult foods or eating ice. • Your tooth can create hair line type fracture(s) or trend lines that let parasites into the pulp stage inflaming the sensors or[18] infecting the tooth. • You will not be able to neglect the discomfort this can cause, especially if you chew something difficult and increase the crack. • Chewing on the other side of the [19]oral cavity area is neglecting this problem, not treating it. • Unfortunately, that is the path some people take until the tooth becomes contaminated or the discomfort intolerable. Third Cause of Root Canal is Trauma: • People that were hit in the oral cavity as a child can have the tooth get contaminated as a mature. • Car injuries, work or [20]sports-related injuries, and drops that make you breeze your tooth together can cause damage to the sensors that may or may not show up right away. • Furthermore, having deep tooth other ingredients done on the tooth, taking out old steel tooth additional ingredients and changing them with blend (white) tooth additional ingredients, or having the tooth drilled down for a top can be stressful for some anxiety inside the [21]tooth and cause the sensors to get contaminated. • Inflamed anxiety can sometimes negotiate down after a brief period, or be very agonizing and require [22]root canal treatment or abolition for comfort. Symptoms and Signs may notice by your own or Dentist Notice by Own: It’s usually the use of [23]pain and/or inflammation that alerts to a person that their teeth needs root canal treatment. • Tooth Pain • [24]Gum tenderness or swelling in the area near the tooth.

  12. 12. • Individually dark teeth • Visibility of a [26]tooth nerve Treatment of Root Canal Only your [27]dental professional can make the ultimate dedication that your teeth needs root canal treatment. • Root Canal treatment is done when corrosion will likely harm or has already murdered a tooth. • During a root canal, a dental professional or [28]endodontist eliminates the pulp from the middle of a tooth and fills up the pulp hole. • This can avoid the growth of an agonizing disease in the pulp that may propagate to other tooth. A [29]root canal can also cure a disease that has designed into an abscessed tooth. This [30]process can reduce tooth ache, quit disease, and enhance treatment. • A general [31]dental professional or one who focuses primarily on illnesses of teeth pulp (endodontist) can perform a root canal. • First, the dental professional will insensitive your [32]gum area with a material that seems like jam. After your gum areas are insensitive, the dental professional will provide a regional pain-killer that will absolutely insensitive the tooth, gum area, mouth, and epidermis in that area. Sometimes nitrous oxide gas will be used to decrease discomfort and help you rest. • The [33]dental professional will use a routine and other resources to eliminate the pulp from the teeth and will complete the inside part of the teeth below the gum line with drugs, short-term stuffing components, and final [34]root canal filling. • The dental professional may individual the corroded teeth from the other teeth with a small piece of rubberized on a metal frame. This safety rubberized piece also helps stop liquid and teeth snacks from coming into your neck and [35]mouth. • The tooth may be fitted with a temporary [36]crown until the permanent crown is made and cemented into place. • After the root canal, a lasting filling or crown (cap) is often required. If a crown is required, the [37]dentist eliminates the decay, and then makes an impact of the teeth. A [38]specialist uses the impact to make a crown that perfectly matches the drilled teeth. • After a [39]root canal, your mouth and gum area may stay insensitive for a few times until the pain-killer would wear off. Later you may have pounding discomfort, which you can cure with discomfort drugs, such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen, or a more powerful prescribed painkiller. The discomfort usually continues only a day or two. • [40]Crowns that seal the top of the tooth and strengthen it may come loose over time. They may need to be repaired, redone, or cemented on again. • A root canal removes the pulp inside the tooth and replaces it with filling material. It can effectively treat or [41]prevent an infection. • Root Canal eliminates the pulp within the teeth, the teeth becomes more delicate and may crack more quickly if it is not protected with a [42]crown or cap. 12

  15. 15. Chapter 2 2013 2.1 January How should I care for my dental crown? (2013-01-08 08:50) Definition, Types And Issues of Dental Crown:[1] Definition of Dental Crown A [2]dental crown is a tooth-shaped ”cap” that is placed over a tooth to protect the teeth to recover its style, durability, and enhance its overall look. The [3]crowns (capped teeth), when recorded into place, completely encase the whole noticeable part of a [4]tooth that can be found at and above the gum line. What are the Types of Dental Crowns? 1. [5]Stainless steel 2. Metals 3. Porcelain-fused-to-metal 4. All-ceramic or all-porcelain 5. Temporary versus permanent. 1. Stainless Steel: [6]Crowns (capped tooth) are pre-made crowns that are used on long-lasting tooth, mainly as a short-term measure. 15
  16. 16. • The top defends the [7]tooth or feeling while a continuing top is created from another material. • For children, a stainless-steel top is commonly used to fit over a main tooth that’s been prepared to fit it. The top covers the entire tooth and defends it from further [8]corrosion. • When the main tooth comes out to make room for the long-lasting tooth, the top comes away naturally with it. • In general, [9]stainless-steel capped tooth are used for kid’s tooth because they don’t require multiple dental trips to put in place and so are more cost-effective than custom-made capped tooth and prophylactic [10]oral treatment needed to protect a tooth without a top. 2. Metals: Used in the crown (capped teeth) include [11]silver metal, other materials (for example, palla- dium), or a base-metal (for example, dime or chromium). Compared with other crown types, fewer teeth frameworks need to be eliminated with steel capped teeth, and teeth use to opposite teeth is kept at a minimum. [12]Metal crowns hold up against biting on and eating causes well and probably last the lengthiest in terms of use down. Furthermore, steel capped teeth hardly ever processor or break. The metal color is the main disadvantage. [13]Metal capped teeth are the best choice for out-of-sight molars. 3. Porcelain-Fused-To-Metal: [14]Dental crown (capped tooth) can be color printed to your nearby tooth (unlike the metal crowns). However, more wearing to the opposite tooth occurs with this top type compared with steel or material capped tooth. The crown’s pottery portion can also processor or break off. Next to [15]all-ceramic capped tooth, porcelain-fused-to-metal crown looks most like a normal tooth. Even so, sometimes still actual the crown’s pottery can show through as a dark range, especially at the gum range and even more so if your [16]gum area diminishes. These capped teeth can be the best choice for back or front tooth. 4. All-Ceramic or All-Porcelain: Dental crown(capped tooth) provides better natural color go with than any other top type and may be more appropriate for people with [17]steel allergic reactions. However, they are not as powerful as [18]porcelain-fused-to-metal capped tooth, and they wear down opposite tooth a little more than steel or material capped tooth. All-ceramic capped tooth are the best choice for front tooth. 5. Temporary versus Permanent: Temporary capped teeth can be created in your [19]dentist’s of- fice, whereas long lasting (permanent) capped teeth are created in a dental laboratory. Temporary [20]capped teeth are created of polymer or stainless-steel and can be used as a brief recovery until a lasting top is constructed by a lab. Why is a Dental Crown Needed? A dental crown may be required in the following situations: • To secure a weak tooth (for example, from decay) from splitting or to keep together parts of a damaged tooth. • To recover an already disabled [21]tooth or a tooth that has been critically used down. • To protect and support a tooth with a large filling when there aren’t a lot of teeth left. • To keep an oral link in place. • To protect misshapen or acutely discolored teeth. 16
  17. 17. • To secure a [22]dental implant. • To make an aesthetic modification. Preparing a Tooth for a Crown Steps Preparing a tooth for a crown usually requires two steps to the [23]dental professional : • The first step includes analyzing and preparing the teeth. • The second visit includes a position of the permanent crown. What Issues Could Create With a Dental Crown? 1. Pain or Sensitivity: [24]Pain or sensitivity that happens when you chew down usually means that the crown is too high on the teeth. If the tooth that has been crowned still has sensors in it, you may experience some cold and heat sensitivity. Your [25]dentist may suggest that you brush teeth with tooth paste designed for delicate tooth. If this is the situation, [26]contact your dentist. He or she can quickly fix the issue. 2. Damaged Crown: Crowns made of all ceramic can sometimes a processor. If the chip is small, a blend material can be used to repair the chip with the [27]crown staying in the mouth area. If the cracking is comprehensive, the crown (capped teeth) may need to be changed. 3. Reduce Crown: Sometimes, the concrete cleansers out from under the crown. Not only does this allow the crown to become loose. It allows parasites to flow in and cause rust to the teeth that goes on to be. If a crown seems loose, contact your [28]dentist’s workplace. 4. Crowns Falls Off: Sometimes crown (capped teeth) drop off. Usually this is due to an inappropriate fit, a deficiency of concrete, or a very little bit of teeth framework staying that the top can keep on to. If this happens, fresh the top and the top side of the [29]teeth. You can substitute the crown momentarily using oral sticky or short-term teeth concrete that is marketed in shops for this objective. [30]Contact your dentist’s workplace instantly. He or she provides you with particular guidelines on how to the proper maintain the teeth and crown on the day or so until you can be seen for an assessment. Your dentist may be able to re-cement the crown in place; if not, a new crown will need to be created. 5. Sensitivity: Because the materials used to make the crown (capped teeth) are usually a variety of materials, a hypersensitive responded to the materials or [31]ceramic used in the crown can occur, but this is incredibly unusual. 6. Dark Line on Crowned Teeth Next to the Gum Line: A dark line next to the [32]gum variety of your crowned teeth is regular, particularly if you have a porcelain-fused-to-metal top. This dark selection is basically the steel of the top displaying through. How Extensive Perform Dental Crowns Last? On regular, [33]dental crowns (capped teeth) last between five and 15 years. The lifespan of a crown relies on the amount of ”wear and tear” the crown is revealed to, how well you follow good [34]dentistry methods, and your personal mouth-related routines (you should avoid such routines as crushing or tightening your tooth, chewing ice, biting on finger nails, and using your [35]tooth to open packaging). 17

(2013-03-01 09:34) Procedure for Dental Veneers: 18
  19. 19. [1] [2]Dental Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made porcelain shells of [3]tooth-colored porcelain designed and placed over a tooth, to enhance your overall look. [4]Veneers are bonded to the front of the tooth modifying their color, shape and size. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer: • Composite resin: It is a one visit procedure done chair-side. Patients walk out with beautiful smile. • Dental porcelain: These are Lab fabricated veneers for ultimate aesthetics and usually require two visits. These are fabricated by very skilled [5]ceramists in the lab. Indication for Dental Veneers: Veneers are routinely used to fix: • [6]Discolored Teeth • Worn Teeth • Chipped or broken [7]Teeth • Misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped Teeth • Tooth with gaps between them Procedure for Dental Veneers: One tooth or many teeth can simultaneously undergo the veneering process described below- • Preliminary Diagnosis: It includes thorough exam.

(2013-03-25 06:19) Benefits and Types of Dental Bridges: 20
  21. 21. [1] [2]Dental bridges hook up the gap made by one or more lost [3]teeth. A bridge comprises of two uppermost points of the teeth located on the either side of gap the two stabilized teeth are called abutment teeth and false tooth/teeth in the middle. These false teeth are called [4]pontics and can be created from silver, gold, porcelain or by combining all these materials. These dental bridges are strengthened by natural teeth. Benefits of Dental Bridges Bridges can: • Improve your smile • Enable you to chew and converse properly • Retain the shape of your face • Allocate proper forces in your bite by restoring the missing teeth • Inhibit persisting [5]teeth from delineation Types of Dental Bridges There are three main types of dental bridges: • Traditional bridges This is the most widely used variable of bridges that comprises of a pointic pooled between two porcelain [6]crowns that are supported on nearby teeth. • Cantilever bridges Cantilever [7]bridges are employed if there are adjoining teeth on only one side of the lost tooth or [8]teeth. • Resin-bonded bridges 21
  22. 22. [9]Resin-bonded bridges are fabricated from plastic teeth and [10]gums strengthened by a metal structure. Metal wings on both of the sides of the bridge are fixed to your surviving teeth. Procedure for Getting a Dental Bridge During the first visit, the abutment teeth are grafted. Grafting constitutes remodelling of these teeth by clearing away a portion of enamel to allow some space for a crown to be planted over them. Thereafter, imprints of the teeth are created, which work as specimen with which the [11]dental lab will create the bridge, [12]pontic and crowns. During the second session, your temporary bridge will be deposed and the new stable bridge will be examined and modified to attain a proper fit. Multiple sittings may be required to verify the suitability of the metal framework and bite. If the dental implant is a fixed (permanent) bridge, your [13]dentist may momentarily fix it for a couple of weeks to make sure it is suitable. After confirming, the bridge is substantially fixed into the place. Precautions for Dental Bridges • It is necessary to keep your existing teeth healthy and strong as the efficiency of the [14]bridge (depending on the type selected) depends upon the strong support provided by the adjacent teeth. • Brushing your teeth twice a day and daily flossing inhibits further [15]tooth decay and gum problems that can result into [16]tooth loss. • Chew soft foods or food cut into smaller pieces until you become habitual of the dental bridge. • Opt for a balanced, healthy and nutritious diet for better [17]dental health. A bridge is a tooth replacement option. It is done to replace a missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to the adjacent teeth on each side of the missing area.

[6] Why It Is Done Root planing and scaling is carried out in either of the conditions, whether the [7]gums start tearing away from teeth or when hard minerals (tartar) start settling over the roots of teeth. How Well It Works If you continue with good and proper [8]dental care after the process, further progress of gum disease would stop. Your gums will be cured and become healthy and would regain their colour (pink). 23
  24. 24. Risks Involved [9]Root planing and scaling can originate injurious germs into the bloodstream. Even the [10]gum tissue is at the stake. You may need to take medicines before and after the surgery is performed, especially when you are in a state, where you are at the risk of getting serious [11]infection or if the diseases are in particular troubling you. You need to take medicines if you: • Have a few heart problems that can lead you to serious heart infection named endocarditis. • Have an unsound and flawed immune system. • Had recently underwent major surgeries or have artificial body parts, such as a synthetic hip or heart valve. What to Think About • Root planing and scaling is a very simple technique that can inhibit gum disease very well. • Without proper [12]dental care, your gum infection may enhance. To inhibit infection, floss and brush regularly. • For quick healing, stop using tobacco in any form whether it is cigarette or spit tobacco. As tobacco lessen your ability to fight gum infection and also sets back healing. Scaling and planing can be beneficial in various ways. One is that it inhibits disease. Research has proven that germs from [13]periodontal diseases can travel through the blood vessels and take other areas of the body under their effect, at times leading to heart and respiratory diseases. [14]Scaling and root planing wipe out such bacteria that lead to these conditions.

(2013-05-28 09:55) Treatment of Periodontal Maintenance: [1] [2]Periodontal Maintenance is the method used to neat and retain the [3]teeth and [4]gums after the analysis and treatment of periodontal disease. Periodontal Maintenance or supportive periodontal therapy is vital to maintain your oral hygiene. This [5]treatment is beneficial for both the sufferers and non sufferers of periodontal ailments and also to patients with [6]tooth problems. Prevention of Periodontal Maintenance The bacteria found in plaque causes [7]gum disease. This bacteria releases toxins that harm your gums and teeth. So, if the plaque is not cleared, it settles and gets transformed into calculus. Even the people with good [8]oral health can not prevent the depositing of calculus on teeth. Flossing and brushing minimizes the calculus but regular and expert maintenance is essential to remove it thoroughly. Your [9]dentist can detect your hidden gum problems while performing periodontal maintenance. Treatments available for Periodontal Disease The dentists most commonly use scaling and root planing (SRP), a non surgical treatment, for treating active [10]gum problems. A dental hygienist , after making complete diagnosis and analysis of the periodontal 25
  26. 26. problem, employs this therapy. • The oral examination involves the periodontal probe and charting of the sulcus (pockets) encircling every [11]tooth. • Healthy measurements should range from 1-3 millimetres. Bleeding pockets along with 4 millimetres or more depth are the indicators of [12]infection. • Determining the teeth to be scaled depends upon the formation of bacteria, debris and calculus beneath the gum line. • Not only the number of teeth but the depth of the pockets collectively decide the time needed for scaling in each quadrant. • Each quadrant of SRP requires one hour per visit. After the completion of non-surgical therapy , SRP, the patient should expect more frequent follow up [13]ap- pointments. To observe the progress of [14]treatment, patient is placed on 3 months periodontal cleaning schedule. If the problem stabilizes, the time interval can be raised up to 4 months. If you are looking for a healthy and time honoured [15]periodontal practice you can rely on us to help you achieve and maintain good dental health.

[4]Reasons Leading to Dental Cavities 31
  32. 32. Large amount of bacteria is normally present in our mouth. When this bacteria combines with the food; especially sugar or starch rich food and saliva, produces a sticky material called plaque. When this plaque starts getting accumulating on the hard tooth enamel, it starts damaging it and produces pits and holes in the tooth i.e. cavities. For this reason [5]dental caries or cavities are also known as ”dietobacterial” disease. Signs and Symptoms of Dental Cavities: • [6]Toothache • Sensitivity to sweet, hot and cold foods and drinks • Light or discolored spots on the teeth Prevention of Dental Cavities : To prevent cavities, oral hygiene is required. It includes: • Consistent professional cleansing session • Brushing twice a day • Daily flossing • Rinsing your mouth with anti-bacterial mouth wash, every time, you eat sugar or starch rich food • Using fluoride tooth paste or mouth wash • Avoid or reduce consuming sugar or starch rich diet [7]Treatments : Early and timely treatment can prevent further damage or tooth loss or decay. [8]Treat- ments advised and followed by dentists involves : • [9]Dental Fillings : During the procedure, dentists remove the decayed material by drilling it out and [10]filling the tooth with silver, gold alloy, porcelain or composite resin. • [11]Crowning or Capping : If the pore or hole is large enough and there is limited tooth structure, dentists after removing the decayed material covers or crowns the remaining one with the ceramic inlay or artificial crown. • [12]Root Canal : At times, not the visible part but the inert part of the tooth i.e. nerve in the tooth dies, in such cases, [13]dentists advise for root canal. Here the damaged nerve along with blood vessel tissue is removed and the root is replaced with some sealing material.

What are the reasons behind bad breath? [3] Most commonly, accumulation of bacteria in the mouth results in inflammation, which in turn causes [4]nasty breath problems that smell like sulphur or even the worst. Other common reasons of bad breath or malodor are: 1. Cavities or gum disease 2. Tonsils with trapped food particles 3. Cracked filings 4. Medical conditions like; diabetes, respiratory tract disease or liver disease 5. Chronic dry mouth or xerostomia What are the different methods or ways to eliminate or fight against the bad breath? Anybody [5]suffering from bad breath wants to get rid of it as early as possible. Quick fixes are only temporary; below mentioned methods should be employed to [6]resolve the issue permanently: • Brush and Floss daily: Bacteria in your mouth outnumber the cells in your entire body. The best defense against these germs is brush your teeth thoroughly for twice and floss once in a day. 35
  36. 36. • Eat Zinc rich Diet: Deficiency of zinc also cause halitosis or [7]bad breath. As zinc is a known anti- microbial and eliminates harmful germs, Eating zinc rich foods like; pumpkin, gourd seeds or organ meats can supplement this deficiency. • Herbal Remedies: Due to insufficient elimination through liver; heavy metals or toxins get accumu- lated in the body that are responsible for bad breath. Taking stinging nettle tea, alfa alfa sprouts, peppermint, fennel, parsley, dandelion, golden seal, wild yam and lemon is the best way out in such conditions, as these are the best breath deodorizers. • Scrape your tongue: To eliminate any kind of bacterial residue between the folds of tongue and taste buds, brush your tongue with a tongue scraper or tooth brush. • Keep your whistle wet: Drink sufficient water to avoid dry mouth.

Supplementing probiotics rich foods like yogurt, fermented sauerkraut in your diet will not only cure you of your bad breath but also improve your digestive tract. • Quit Smoking: Smoking deteriorates the gum tissues and stain the teeth as well. Moreover, tobacco dries out your mouth causing unpleasant breath that persists even after brushing. • Consult your Dentist: The best way to fight chronic malodor is to consult your [9]dentists. Dentists may rule out its cause. If he detects systemic infection as the root cause of bad breath, he may refer you to your physician. • Rinse your mouth: Anti-bacterial mouth washes can provide a way out, as they reduce plaque producing bacteria and freshen up your breath. • Take Liquid Chlorophyll: Liquid chlorophyll works as a deodorizer both for mouth and body by neutralizing harmful bacteria. • Go for sugarless Gums: Sugary candies intensify bacterial growth in your mouth. Chewing sugarless gums after meals increase saliva flow and also help to reduce cavities. [10][11]Contact [12]Bikram Singh DMD for any of yours [13]dental issues.

  37. 37. Chapter 3 2014 3.1 January Dentin Hypersensitivity (2014-01-09 06:56) What do we mean by Dentin Hypersensitivity? Do you feel an electric stinging sensation when you eat ice cream or drink iced tea; bite down on a choco- late bar or gulp some hot soup? There are the chances that you have “[1]Dentin Hypersensitivity or [2]Sensitive Teeth.” When you [3]have sensitive teeth, actions such as; flossing, eating, drinking, brushing etc. cause sharp pain in your teeth. Various reasons ranging from trauma to [4]dental disease can cause [5]sensitive teeth. People falling in the age group of 20 to 50 are more prone to this condition. [6] Dentin Hypersen- sitivity What are the causes of Dentin Hypersensitivity? Gradual exposure of the dentine, the softer part of your tooth lying just beneath the tooth enamel; causes [7]Dentin Hypersensitivity. Dentine consists of the fluid filled nerve fibers and this fluid moves due to drinking or eating hot or cold foods, thus leading to sharp or discomforting pain in the tooth or teeth. [8]Dentine can become exposed due to various reasons including: • Brushing frequently 37
  38. 38. • Brushing vigorously by applying pressure • Brushing your teeth with hard bristled brush • Gingivitis or Gum Disease • Swelled or weakened gum tissues • Bruxism or grinding your teeth at night or throughout the day • Recession of Gums • Periodontal Disease • Dental procedures like Tooth Whitening • Over consumption of dietary acids like; citrus fruits and juices • Excessive consumption of carbonated drinks • Thinning Enamel • Gastric reflux • Poor oral hygiene What are the treatments suggested to [9]treat Dentin Hypersensitivity? After detecting and verifying the cause underlying [10]Tooth Sensitivity, specific treatments are suggested by the dentists. Most commonly, below mentioned suggestions are forwarded by the dentists: • Brush your teeth with desensitizing toothpaste, as it helps to relieve pain by filling the channels in the dentin. • Clear the plaque, a gummy white substance which irritates your teeth; by brushing twice and flossing at least once in a day. • Use a soft bristled tooth brush and as well apply less pressure while brushing. • Avoid chewing tobacco, most commonly known as dip or snuff. As tobacco along with causing oral cancer also recedes the gums, thus leading to sensitivity. • Refrain yourself from consuming excess acidic foods. • Avoid clenching your teeth. Ask for a mouth guard from your dentist for night time. Apart from above mentioned ways, [11]regularly consult your dentist and follow his advice and recommendations to treat your sensitive teeth.

  40. 40. Good oral practices and habits during childhood lead to lifelong [2]healthy gums and teeth. So Preventive [3]Dentistry is all the more crucial and necessary for children. It is an established and proven fact that children with [4]good oral health and healthy teeth are more alert and active as their healthy teeth and gums enable them eat and chew properly, thus making them healthy. Keeping this view in mind, American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors each February every year as [5]National Children’s Dental Health Month. Good [6]oral health and [7]healthy teeth not only make your child’s smile attractive but also boost and build up his confidence. By following below mentioned preventive measures you can ensure your child a lifetime of[8] good oral health: • Aware your child about the daily [9]dental hygiene. Teach him to brush regularly, especially after meals or at least twice a day. • Opt for child-friendly fluoride toothpaste with different flavours and colors, as fluoride strengthen their tooth enamel and resists decay. • Teach your child the proper technique of brushing. As it helps removing plaque and results in [10]healthier teeth and gums. • Try different methods to encourage your child to floss daily, as it is the most dreaded [11]dental practice. • In case of up to 5 months old babies, remember to wipe their gums with gauze or clean wash cloth and water after every feeding. • As soon as your baby’s first tooth appears, start a proper and daily cleansing regime and consult your [12]dentist. • Encourage your child to wear mouth guards while playing to protect his teeth from any potential harm. • Consult your [13]pediatric dentist for applying dental sealants (plastic protective coating) on the biting surfaces of our child’s back teeth as most of the cavities occur on these places. Studies also suggest that children with at least single sealant application have reduced the risk of tooth decay by 50 %. • Antibiotics can stain your child’s teeth. So consult your pediatrician before using any medication. • Offer your child healthy, nutritious and balanced meals like; yogurt, vegetables and cheese as snacks. • Avoid offering candies, sweets and carbohydrates like chips, pretzel as snacks because they stick to the tooth surface. Whenever your child consumes such sticky food, make him brush his teeth soon after. • Take your child for [14]regular dental check-ups for professional cleansing and oral exams. It further helps to remove plaque build-up on teeth. • Fluoride treatments employed by dentists help to renew fluoride content in enamel, thus preventing cavities. 40
  41. 41. • Regular visits to dentists will also help to assess ongoing changes in [15]child’s oral health like; he may need additional fluoride, changes in diets, sealants for proper dental health. On this 64th National Children Dental Health Month, [16]Contact Dr. Bikram Singh DMD for your children proper dental check-up; in order to fight back severe [17]dental problems like tooth decay and cavities, so that they can continue brightening your world with their healthy, attractive and confident smiles.

(2014-03-12 13:34) Cough Syrups and Cavities [1] Most of the people reach out for over the counter medicated syrups to relieve and ease their cough, colds, flu and runny noses. But these syrups either sweetened or sugar-free are as bad for your [2]oral health as any other sugar contained food, because they make you prone to oral cavities when you are already encountering other health related problems. So most of the [3]dentists are not in the favour of using these syrups to get relieve from coughs and colds. Which ingredients of cough syrups can lead to cavities and how? There are various ingredients present in the cough syrups or drops that can lead to cavities. They are: Fructose Corn Syrup and Sucrose: High intensity of fructose corn syrup or sucrose in cough syrups may lead 41
  42. 42. to [4]cavities because bacteria in the mouth breeds on sugar and further breaks it down and forms acids which in turn may harm the tooth enamel. Citric Acid: Citric acids, low pH levels and high acidity in syrups can erode your [5]tooth enamel and as well wear it down. Alcohol: At times, alcohol is added in your cough syrups which makes your mouth dry. The saliva in your mouth naturally rinses the sugars and acids away but the due to alcohol saliva production decreases, thus sugars and acids remain in the mouth for longer periods thus leading to [6]cavities and tooth decay. And if taken at bed time, the negative effects of these syrups increases doubly as saliva production is naturally slows down at night. What are the remedies to check these negative effects of cough syrups? Medications are necessary to treat ailments but we can negate their effects. In order to counteract and undo the negative effects of these cough syrups, [7]dentists advise to manage the time and type of these medications. By adopting the following measures you can prevent the adverse effects of cough syrups: • If available, better opt for the pill or capsule form of the medication. • Instead of bedtime, try to take medications during the meals so that the saliva can rinse away the sugar and acids. • Brush and rinse your mouth after taking the medicine, as it will help to overcome the bad effects of acids and as well will keep your mouth wet. • Drink plenty of water as it will not only wash away the sugar and neutralize the acids but will also help you to heal quickly. • If after taking medicine you feel dry mouth, chew sugar-free gums or lozenges. • Get some calcium supplements or use topical fluoride after taking liquid medication.

  43. 43. 3.4 April Women’s Oral Health (2014-04-21 12:49) How do the Hormonal Fluctuations in Women affect their Oral Health? It is an established and well-known fact that women experience mood swings due to the [1]hormonal changes at different stages of life. But these hormonal changes related with the puberty, menstrual cycle, pregnancy and menopause affect their [2]oral health also and make them more susceptible to [3]dental problems at certain stages of their life. At which stages, do the women become more susceptible to oral health problems? In a woman’s life, there are five main situations when the hormonal variations make them more prone to [4]oral diseases. They are: • Puberty: During the puberty, an increase in the production of women hormones viz. estrogen and progesterone is noted. This increases the blood flow to gums and alter the ways the gum tissues react to the bacterial plaque; thus resulting in reddened, swelled and bleeding gum tissues. • Monthly Menstrual Cycle: [5]Hormonal variations during the menstrual cycle lead to oral health problems like; red, swollen and bleeding gums, swollen salivary glands, canker sores and gingivitis. • Pregnancy: The considerable changes in the [6]hormonal level during pregnancy lead to gum diseases or gingival inflammation known as “pregnancy gingivitis.” At times, these changes heighten the inflammation so much so that it becomes localized and presents itself as a sore known as “[7]pregnancy tumor.” • Oral Contraceptives: Women taking birth control pills may develop gingivitis. It happens because these pills contain progesterone and they increase the level of that hormone in the body leading to inflamed gum tissue. • Menopause: Due to menopause, levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease in the blood stream. Numerous oral changes can occur including; altered taste, discomfort in the mouth, pain and burning sensation, sensitivity to hot and cold beverages, [8]tooth decay, gum diseases and loss of jaw bone due to osteoporosis. Which preventive measures should women take to prevent these oral health related issues? Visiting your [9]dentists regularly and by following the below mentioned measures women can prevent these [10]oral problems that they have to face at the certain stages of their life: • Observe a good oral hygiene; i.e. brush your teeth twice a day using a fluoride containing tooth paste and floss at least once in a day. • Pregnant women should consult their [11]dentists regarding nutritional counseling and should observe strict plaque controlling measures. 43
  44. 44. • If you are pregnant and suffer from morning sickness, then rinse your mouth immediately after every vomiting. • Women experiencing dry mouth during pregnancy and menopause should drink lots of water and chew sugar less gum or candy. • To treat oral contraceptives related gingivitis, women should visit their dentists for professional cleanings. • During the menopause, visit your dentist twice a year for oral examination and cleaning. • Eat a well balanced diet. • Avoid sugary and starchy food.

Toothache refers to the pain in the teeth and their supporting structures, which is triggered by [3]dental diseases or pain referred to the teeth by non-dental diseases. What are the most common causes of Toothache? Toothache is a constantly throbbing pain and may be set off by certain foods or drinks.

The kind of treatment you receive largely depends upon the cause of your toothache. [7]Dentists, after making a complete oral examination may suggest the following treatments: • If toothache is due to cavity, dentists may fill the cavity or [8]extract your tooth. • If loose or broken filling is causing the problem, the [9]dentist may put new filling in the place after clearing out the decayed or the broken one. • [10]Root canal treatment may be suggested for treating the infected gums. • Pain medicines or antibiotics may be prescribed to speed up healing. • Treatment of TMJ may involve surgery, stress minimizing techniques and mouth guard to check the tooth grinding. • To lessen the pain and inflammation associated with toothache, Phototherapy with cold laser may be used. How to prevent Toothaches? [11]Toothaches can be prevented by strictly following a hygienic oral regime and by keeping your gums and teeth as healthy as possible. For healthy gums and teeth, you need to follow the below listed practices: • Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride containing toothpaste • Floss at least for once in a day to clean between your teeth • Visit your [12]dentists for regular and scheduled dental check-ups and professional cleanings • Eat healthy diet; consume less sugary foods and drinks • Do not smoke, as smoking can worsen certain [13]dental problems 45

  48. 48. Protecting Yourself Against Oral Cancer (2014-06-18 21:18) Protecting Yourself Against Oral Cancer [1] If there were a quick and painless way to identify pre-cancerous cells in the mouth of someone you loved, would you want them to try it? What if that person were you? The truth is, as uncomfortable as it may be to even think of the word “cancer,” thinking about it,and thus detecting it early, is the key to eradicating it. That’s why, if you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, you should schedule a visit. The oral exam that accompanies your cleaning is just one of the many things you can do to reduce your risk from this deadly form of cancer. So, lets take a quick look at a few of the risk factors and symptoms and consider a few options you may have to help reduce risk. Keep in mind that no list is exhaustive, and to always share with your health care providers your concerns and strategies regarding your oral health. Some risks: Passing certain age thresholds and engaging in certain lifestyle habits can place you at increased risk for oral cancer. Likewise, men tend to have higher rates of oral cancers than do women. Here is the short list: • Patients age 40 and older (95 % of all oral cancer cases) • Patients age 18-39 who use tobacco, are heavy drinkers, or may have a previously diagnosed oral HPV 16/18 infection. • Patients age 65 and older with the lifestyle risk factors described above • And, any patient with a history of oral cancer Some warning signs: If you experience any of the below symptoms lasting more than 7-10 days, please seek the advice of your doctor. Also, keep in mind that aside from an obviously sore throat, the below symptoms can present themselves in the absence of pain. Look out for changes that can be detected on the lips, inside the cheeks, palate, and gum tissue surrounding your teeth and tongue. • Reddish patches (erythroplasia) or whitish patches (leukoplakia) in the mouth • A sore that fails to heal and bleeds easily • A lump or thickening on the skin lining the inside of the mouth • Chronic sore throat or hoarseness • Difficulty in chewing or swallowing 48
