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.

Creates a little spot for the plaque to accumulate.

WIN YOUR NATURAL SMILE BACK...

WIN YOUR NATURAL SMILE BACK....


BEFORE AND AFTER



Are you comfortable with showing your teeth while smiling???


             Loss of natural teeth compromise the functional, aesthetic,speech demands.
             Teeth may be lost due to various reasons..
                     1) dental  caries
                     2) trauma/injury to the jaw
                     3) bone resorption and gum diseases
            Traumatic injuries are the most common cause in loss of teeth and supporting structures in front region.
             A patient came to our clinic with badly broken/non vital infected lower front teeth and she is in a need of immediate restoration of the tooth.The infected tooth is not restorable so we advised,removal of the tooth and immediate replacement with dental implants.       
             Dental implants replaces a single tooth without affects the health of adjacent tooth.
 
           The broken tooth was removed and implant was placed immediately.                                                     Implant and bone are allowed to bond together to form an artificial tooth.


                                                                                                                                       

           Crown placed on the implant abutment within a week for normal function and aesthetic demands.Later the implant fuse with the jaw bone and helps to keep the bone healthy and intact.
           After the crown placement,gums follow the shape of the tooth and adapts well to the crown.Looks so natural and feels you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
