A patient came to our clinic with multiple missing tooth and badly damaged remaining teeth.we  advised the patient removal of remaining teeth and replacement with complete dentures in both upper and lower arch.


Patient complains of difficulty in having food and also in chewing. The appearence is aesthetically not acceptable by the patient.                                                                                                               

before extraction


Teeth were extracted and the sharp bones were smoothened to produce a round and smooth edentulous ridge.


After the satisfactory healing of tissues,impression was made and complete dentures were fabricated and polished.

FLOSS,BRUSH,RINSE AND SMILE

About half of the women have enlarged, red, tender gums that bleed when flossed or brushed.

This gum inflammation is PREGNANCY GINGIVITIS (mild form of gum disease)

Due to hormonal changes that increase the blood flow to the gums , make the gums more sensitive to the bacteria in the deposits.

PRE-PREGNANCY DENTAL HEALTH
              - Brush the teeth twice daily with fluoridated toothpaste
              -Floss  between your teeth
              -Visit your dentist regularly

One of our patients having the complaint of gingival enlargement while planning for pregnancy,we advised her REMOVAL OF ENLARGED GINGIVAL TISSUES USING LASER.

                                            

GUMS ARE ENLARGED DUE TO INCREASE IN HORMONAL LEVEL DURING PRE- PREGNANCY




ENLARGED GUMS COVERS HALF OF THE TOOTH SURFACE AND ITS FORMS LIKE A POCKET AROUND THE TOOTH SURFACE

Hormonal changes also affects the normal body response to bacteria which can cause gum infection.
This makes it easier for the plaque to build up on the teeth and more susceptible to infections. 

                                 ENLARGED TISSUES ARE REMOVED USING LASER


ENLARGED GUMS REMOVED TILL THE CROWN LEVEL OF THE TOOTH


Dental care before getting pregnant is a must, to avoid gum infection.With a good oral hygiene and routine professional cleaning,there should be nothing for you to worry about.

LOST TOOTH REPLACED IN 3 DAYS...

WHAT HAPPENS IF GUM DISEASE GOES UNTREATED???


In the early stage of gum disease,bacteria in the plaque build up, causes the gums to inflame and bleeds easily during brushing.

When this happens teeth are no longer anchored in the place,they become loose,results in tooth loss.

GUM DISEASE is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

 Up to 30% of population may be GENETICALLY predisposed to gum disease.

Gum disease if left untreated ,results in bone loss and tooth loss.

One our patients, diagnosed to have periodontal disease and a missing tooth in lower front tooth region.Also having mobility of remaining teeth in the same region.
We advised the patient removal of mobile teeth and replacement with dental implants.

DUE TO GUM DISEASE,THE GUMS BECOME LOOSE AND RESULTS IN MOBILITY OF TEETH AND  FINALLY RESULTS IN TOOTH LOSS

                           
            MOBILE TEETH WERE REMOVED AND IMPLANTS PLACED ON THE SAME DAY

NO CUT,NO SEW,NO FEAR,MINIMAL BLEEDING..

NO CUT,NO SEW,NO FEAR,MINIMAL BLEEDING..

ARE YOU AFRAID OF GUM DISEASE???

DO YOU KNOW WHAT CAUSES IT AND WHAT TO DO ONCE YOU HAVE IT??

Gums and bones hold the teeth in place.Gum disease occurs when there is too much deposits(lakhs and millions of bacteria) on the teeth and gums.
Neglect of oral hygiene results in red and swollen gums.Bone that supports the tooth also become infected.
Gum disease results in two types:

                             1)GINGIVITIS (mildest form) -red and swollen gums which bleeds easily

                             2)PERIODONTITIS

                                             -bone loss with mobility leads to loss of teeth.

A patient came to our clinic diagnosed to have gums enlargement because of deposits near the gums.

            The gums are enlarged and covers almost full portion of the teeth.


The gums become healthy once the local factors are removed by laser.In order to maintain healthy  gums,it should be free of local irritating factors.                                                                                       
There should be adequate removal of deposits and food debris regularly.Proper brushing and dental flossing helps to maintain the oral hygiene.

PROBLEMS CAUSED BY MISSING TEETH AND HOW DENTAL IMPLANTS CAN HELP.....

PROBLEMS CAUSED BY MISSING TEETH AND HOW DENTAL IMPLANTS CAN HELP...
It is easy to think that losing a tooth is not going to cause any problems..
when you lost a tooth,you may wonder  what to do next.we tend to think about teeth as individual units,but it makes up a complete system.
INFECTED TEETH can affect the overall health and affects the health
    Things that happen when cavities left untreated:                                                                                                                     1)  increased sensitivity → filling can be done                                                                                                    2)   pain→bacteria reach the tooth pulp→Root canal treatment can be done.

 If left untreated,the tooth should be removed and replacement should be done.
One of our patient had came with the complaint of decayed teeth with no pain in the lower back teeth region.The crown structure of teeth has broken down leaving only the root inside the bone due to the carious process.
 
consequences of the broken tooth structure,if it stays in the mouth for a long time:
  • Teeth in the opposite jaw starts shifting into the space.
  • chewing with the infected and broken tooth,an uneven distribution of biting forces occurs lead to more tooth loss                                                                                                                                                                                                   ↓                                                                                                                     compromise the nutritional status and overall health                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Another patient came to our clinic with infected lower back tooth,tooth was removed and then immediately replaced with dental implants.
                                                                                                                           
Dental implants were placed and x-ray taken

HOW COME DENTAL IMPLANTS WORK IN MY CONDITION???

How come dental implants work in my condition???
The above question has been arised by one of our patient who came for replacement

Many of us think now regarding the type of replacement after getting the teeth removed or after immediate teeth removal.

Loosing a tooth is exciting at the age of 6 but its painful and disheartening in the adult age .

Dental implants can work and holds good in many circumstances.

The implants which we use in our clinic requires deep sound cortical bone also works well in case of  compromised condition(poor bone quality).


These implants after getting attached in bone induce new bone formation and stimulate jaw bone .

Here is one of our patient who came for replacement and Dental implants has been placed to restore  the lost teeth.

OUCH!MY WISDOM TEETH ARE KILLING ME!!

OUCH! MY WISDOM TEETH ARE KILLING ME!

 Wisdom teeth/third molar are an issue for most people at some point of time.
Usually erupts between 18 and 21 years of age.
Most people do not have enough space for the teeth to erupt fully in the mouth.
In our ancestors,the wisdom teeth were functional because the size of the dental arches were bigger. With the evolution,the size of the jaw bones have diminished,resulting in impacted(not erupted),incompletely erupted and mal aligned wisdom teeth.
Impaction means the wisdom tooth partially erupt through gums which allows habitat for bacteria to enter around the tooth and cause an infection.

  •  Impacted teeth creates pressure on the adjacent teeth and decreases the amount of bone present on the side of impacted tooth.
  • Food lodgement will be there and difficult for brushing and flossing, will leads to tooth decay, gum swelling.
  • NOT TOO COMMON,cyst formation around the wisdom teeth.this causes destruction of bone.

A patient who had lower impacted teeth came to our clinic with pain and swelling for the past 2 days.He had the pain one month before and now he again has the pain.
              
After giving the local anesthesia,the tooth and the surrounding tissues got the numbness,as the tooth was inside the bone,it was splited and removed along with the dentigerous cyst.
               X rays were taken after 1 week  of tooth removal and good healing was seen.Patient experienced the pain and discomfort for 3 days with full recovery taking a few weeks.
"IT IS NOT ALWAYS WISE TO RETAIN WISDOM TEETH,AND REMOVAL OF THESE TEETH DOES NOT AFFECT THE WISDOM"

TEETH ARE NOT THE NUTCRACKERS

In general teeth are in different forms to enable efficient chewing .

Some people uses teeth for detrimental purposes!!

What are all the habits will hurt  teeth???? 

Other than normal function like ,



  • OPENING THE BOTTLES
  • CRACKING THE NUTSHELLS
  • HOLDING THE PEN OR PENCILS
  • USING PINS 
  • BITING THE HARDER ONES
  • NIGHT GRINDING
  • REPEATED CLENCHING OF TEETH 

What will happen if we practice any teeth damaging habits???




  • Any para-functional habits will  increase the abnormal force over the teeth.

                                                       

  • As a result tooth stronger portion (enamel)will start chipping 

                                                       
  • If the abnormal force is minimal with increased frequency then small cracks will start appear and progress on its own                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

  • If the force is adequate to crack the teeth then will ultimately lead to more teeth damage and results in pain

HERE IS ONE OF OUR PATIENT WHO HAS EXPERIENCED THE PAIN DUE TO CRACKED TEETH!


The crack has been identified in the middle of the teeth with two fragments of the teeth that are separated.

                                   








The cracked tooth has caused severe pain and it has been removed and replaced with Dental implants.


 Crown was given on the third day.















Now she is comfortable to continue her basic functions using her implanted tooth.

One of our patient having tooth decay in all the front teeth region,in a need of immediate restoration of the infected teeth.advised removal of all the infected teeth and replacement with   space maintainer.



                        
                     infected upper front teeth    
  The infected teeth was removed and the tooth socket was allowed to heal for 3 days.
                



After 3 days ,SPACE MAINTAINER ,a dental appliance fits into the space where the teeth is missing.

                                                                          



The appliance with false teeth on it until the permanent teeth begin to erupt through the gum tissue.
It is a simple procedure to avoid malocclusion.
Then the appliance is placed on the patients mouth.
