LASER TEETH WHITENING FOR QUICKER BRIGHT SMILE ! !
                 
                   
                        Everyone looks so much better when they smile.Every person deserve a brighter smile which can be accomplished in a Dental office by teeth whitening procedure.Whitening is defined as the process of making the tooth whiter which is brought about by the product causing changes in the intrinsic layer of the teeth.It is not just surface stain removal(scaling).Whitening doesn't simply mean transforming the teeth to brilliant white but it can lighten up the existing color by several shades.It usually takes several sittings. With the latest technique done by LASERS ,whitening can be achieved in a single sitting.

LASER WHITENING VS TRADITIONAL BLEACHING
                      
  • Simpler.
  • Quicker results.
  • Effective
  • Reduced pain and swelling to gums compared to traditional-lasers are focused in specific areas.Treatment done at single visit-traditional bleaching requires trays to be worn up nearly 8 hours a day,ranging from 3 to 6 weeks and only less satisfactory results can be obtained.
  • Removes stains previously thought unattainable by traditional bleaching.
  • Improved patient acceptance .

PROCEDURE:  
               The whole procedure takes about one hour at dentist's office. The procedure begins with application of gel.Heat emitted by lasers speeds up the process of tooth whitening.High concentrated gels are used and hence precautionary steps will be taken before for protecting your gums,lips,cheek or any other oral tissue.After whitening the pores on the surface of the teeth will be open and so any eatables or drinks that stain your teeth should be avoided.

                                  Pre-op
                                  Post-op
  
CARE FOR LONG LASTING BRIGHT SMILE:
                    The brighter smile that is achieved by lasers can last up to 6 months to a year based on your care.It is advised not to take up any staining products for a week and more.visit your dentist after six months for review.You can expect sensitivity after any whitening procedure. Desensitizing paste can be used on your dentist's advice.

Seasonal Tooth Ache! Why does it happen....an insight!

Its Rainy season and there is always a belief that getting your tooth ache treated will aggravate problems in this season!


Lets know the Logic behind what happens during this season in our body


There is a connection between Allergies and Tooth ache:
Allergy related tooth ache can present as an ache, sensitivity to hot or cold, pain even in change of position like sitting or standing. It usually happens in the upper back teeth.

What happens is that it when your body's immune system gears up when you catch a cold mucous fills up the sinus cavities which are above the roots of the your upper back teeth these cavities which are supposed to be empty when clogged with mucous secretions, irritate the teeth and cause pressure pain. This occurs in case if there is no decay of any sort in the teeth and it is purely sinusitis which vanishes when you take meds for cold.

Other cases like when there is a deep decay which has infected the nerves within the teeth, this infection causes severe pain, when the sinusitis occurs in this season for the same person the reason is due to both the teeth and cold so teeth has to be treated to avoid the pain completely otherwise it will lead to swelling and more complications occur if left untreated. So its better to get treated than to avoid treatment blaming the season!.

M_ISS_ING T_ ETH ! IMPLANTS with no doubt a BEST choice!!!

As mentioned in our earlier posts Implants without any doubt are the best guilt free options for replacing missing teeth.......

It is guilt free for a dentist because we are not destroying the vitality of the adjacent natural teeth for the sake of providing a bridge and also adjacent teeth are not burdened to take the load of the missing teeth as in the case of bridges. 

Few images down here will show the result of a long term use of bridge and its ill effects affecting the gums and tooth grounded just to provide a bridge.

Missing tooth replaced with bridge by grinding adjacent tooth

Poor oral hygiene due to the bridge cap material also ill fitting crown ove the reduced tooth

Bridge removed and implant placed on the same day


2 separate Crowns placed with temporary crown over the impant

the inside view. 2 separate crowns help patients to maintain a good oral hygiene rather than united crowns




The procedure can be done in 2 visits with placing implant on day 1 and fixing crowns on the 3rd day, healing will be excellent with very minimal discomfort for the patient and this particular system is suited for all ages, diabetics etc.

Bridge ain't a BAD Option!!! you can still go for it!

Fixed Replacement of a MISSING Tooth/teeth is narrowed down  to 2 Options now

1.   Dental Bridges

2.   Dental Implants

While Dental Implants show a lot of recent advances and without any doubt It being one of the best options to replace a missing tooth, Bridges are still in practice. Its not a bad option when you feel you fear any surgical replacement option or you want to be easy on your pocket. ( It still has its drawbacks though)

A bridge is a fixed dental restoration which joins artificial teeth to the adjacent teeth permanently.
It helps in
1. Restoring your smile
2. Restore ability to chew and speak
3. Maintain the shape of your face and cheek fullness
4. Prevents remaining teeth from drifting from its position.

Root canal treated teeth reduced in size to be taken support from

The natural teeth aiding support for the bridge

Fabricated bridge (missing lower to be replaced with implants)

Restoring smile, cheek fullness, and chewing!

Drawbacks of Bridge
1. Destructive: Bridge requires to reduce the size of the supporting teeth, those teeth may loose the vitality (damage the nerves)
2. This leads to do an intentional rootcanal for those teeth
3. Inability to maintain proper oral hygiene as the bridge is one continuous unit
4. Patient might feel heavy if its a metal ceramic restoration
5. With poor oral hygiene later the supporting teeth might get damaged in the roots which leads to removal of those teeth as well.

Looks like bridges are less expensive than implants but in a long run implants are a one time investment that aids good chewing and there by an investment on your health!
