Root-Canal.jpg
24/Aug/2019

Root Canal Therapy is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected.

Root canal therapy is performed when the pulp which is composed of nerves and blood vessels in the tooth becomes infected or damaged. During root canal therapy, the pulp is removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.

People fear root canals because they assume they are painful. Actually, most people report that the procedure itself is no more painful than having a filling placed. The discomfort experienced in the period leading up to seeking dental care is truly painful, not the procedure itself.

What Is Dental Pulp?

The pulp or pulp chamber is the soft area within the center of the tooth and contains the nerve, blood vessels, and connective tissue. The tooth’s nerve is in the “root” or “legs” of the tooth. The root canals travel from the tip of the tooth’s root into the pulp chamber.

A tooth’s nerve is not vitally important to a tooth’s health and function after the tooth has emerged through the gums. Its only function is sensory — to provide the sensation of heat or cold. The presence or absence of a nerve will not affect the day-to-day functioning of the tooth. However, after treatment, the tooth is less viable and more susceptible to fracture.

Why Does the Pulp Need to Be Removed?

When pulp is damaged, it breaks down, and bacteria begin to multiply within the pulp chamber. The bacteria and other dying pulp remnants can cause an infection or abscessed tooth. An abscess is a pus-filled pocket that forms at the end of a tooth’s root. In addition to an abscess, an infection in the root canal of a tooth can cause:

  1. Swelling that may spread to other areas of the face, neck, or head
  2. Bone loss around the tip of the root
  3. Drainage problems extending outward from the root. A hole can occur through the side of the tooth, with drainage into the gums or through the cheek into the skin.

What Damages a Tooth’s Pulp in the First Place?

A tooth’s pulp can become irritated, inflamed, and infected due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures on a tooth, large fillings, a crack or chip in the tooth, or trauma to the face.

What Are the Signs That Root Canal Therapy Is Needed?

Signs you may need root canal therapy include:

  1. Severe toothache pain upon chewing or application of pressure
  2. Prolonged sensitivity (pain) to hot or cold temperatures (after the heat or cold has been removed)
  3. Discoloration (darkening) of the tooth
  4. Swelling and tenderness in nearby gums
  5. A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums

Sometimes no symptoms are present.

The Root Canal Procedure

Root canal therapy requires one or more office visits and can be performed by a dentist or endodontist. An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in the causes, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and injuries of the teeth’s dental pulp. The choice of which type of dentist to use depends to some degree on the difficulty of the root canal procedure needed in your particular tooth and the general dentist’s comfort level in working on your tooth. Your dentist will discuss who might be best suited to perform the work in your particular case.

The first step in the procedure is to take an X-ray to see the shape of the root canals and determine if there are any signs of infection in the surrounding bone. Your dentist or endodontist will then use local anesthesia to numb the area near the tooth. Actually, anesthesia may not be necessary, since the nerve is dead, but most dentists still anesthetize the area to make the patient more relaxed and at ease.

Next, to keep the area dry and free of saliva during treatment, your dentist will place a rubber dam (a sheet of rubber) around the tooth.

An access hole will then be drilled into the tooth. The pulp, along with bacteria and related debris, is removed from the tooth. The cleaning-out process is accomplished using root canal files. A series of these files of increasing diameter are each subsequently placed into the access hole and worked down the full length of the tooth to scrape and scrub the sides of the root canals. Water or sodium hypochlorite is used periodically to flush away the debris.

Once the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, it needs to be sealed. Some dentists like to wait a week before sealing the tooth. For instance, if there is an infection, your dentist may put a medication inside the tooth to clear it up. Others may choose to seal the tooth the same day it is cleaned out. If root canal therapy is not completed on the same day, a temporary filling is placed in the exterior hole in the tooth to keep contaminants out between appointments.

At the next appointment, to fill the interior of the tooth, a sealer paste and a rubber compound called gutta-percha are placed into the tooth’s root canal. To fill the exterior access hole created at the beginning of treatment, a filling is placed.

The final step may involve further restoration of the tooth. Because a tooth that needs root canal therapy often is one that has a large filling or extensive decay or other weakness, a crown, crown, and post, or other restoration often needs to be placed on the tooth to protect it, prevent it from breaking, and restore it to full function. Your dentist will discuss the need for any additional dental work with you.

Veneers Issues: The problems that can arise from having it and the importance of understanding the risks before you consider it.

Many people are attending dental practices to obtain the ‘perfect smile’ and veneers are a quick way of achieving this. However, some patients may experience problems with it and can be left suffering pain and with dental problems that they did not anticipate.

What is it?

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain made to fit over the front of a person’s natural tooth/teeth to ultimately improve their appearance.

They can be used to correct uneven teeth and teeth which are discolored and therefore they are a popular choice among those wanting to change the appearance of their teeth.

Whilst veneers are a good way to improve a person’s smile, they do not last a lifetime and will require replacing.

Veneers Procedure

Before they are placed, the dentist should first ascertain whether a patient is a suitable candidate for veneers and the dentist will need to examine the patient’s teeth and x-rays and impressions may be taken of their mouth and teeth.

If the dentist thinks that veneers are suitable the next steps will be the preparation of the teeth that are to have veneers. In order to do this, the dentist will need to remove some of the enamel from the tooth surface and this may be carried out under local anesthetic. Impressions will then be taken and these will be sent to a dental laboratory for the veneers to be made.

Once the veneers have been made and the dentist has checked that the veneer fits correctly, the veneer will be cemented to the patients tooth.  There is no going back once veneers have been fitted.  As I said earlier, the veneer will also not last forever and will need replacing and in younger patients they may need several replacements over their lifetime.

Possible problems with Veneers

Veneers are not always a perfect solution.  As a dental negligence lawyer I have spoken with clients who have experienced the following problems:

– Gum/mouth infections can occur if the veneers that are fitted are too large. If there is overhang from the veneer, bacteria can develop and cause an infection, along with soreness of the gums and swelling.

– Sensitive teeth, if too much enamel is removed during the preparation procedure, teeth can become sensitive and cause discomfort.

– A person may experience problems with their bite.

All of these problems should be considered by a dentist when advising on veneers, and treatment should only proceed after a proper assessment and the patient receiving adequate advice, including in relation to possible alternative treatment that could be available.

Our experience

The Dental Negligence Team has dealt with cases where people have suffered pain and injury as a result of poorly fitted ones. In some cases, the person should not even have had veneers fitted in the first instance as they were not a suitable candidate.  People who grind their teeth are not ideal candidates for veneers and this is sometimes not explained to those wishing to have veneers, but should be so the patient is aware of the possible issues that may arise before making a decision.

If you have suffered problems as a result of poorly fitted veneers, please contact me or one of my colleagues in the Dental Negligence Team, who will be happy to assist and advise you on whether you can make a claim for compensation.

dental-crown.jpg
24/Aug/2019

Crown restorations are one of the most common dental procedures dentists perform. Every day, thousands of people have crowns placed to fix all kinds of tooth and mouth problems. Despite how common the procedure is, however, dental crowns are sometimes not very well understood. In fact, some people are intimidated or frightened by the prospect of having a crown restoration.

Dental crowns are nothing to be intimidated by. Not only are they vitally important, but they’re also not scary at all. The dental crown procedure is logical and straight-forward. More importantly, dental crowns themselves perform very important functions for tooth and mouth health. Here’s everything you should know about crowns, and why you shouldn’t be afraid if you need to have one.

WHAT ARE DENTAL CROWNS?

Dental crowns are fixed prosthetic restorations made to restore a damaged tooth to its original shape and size. They’re permanently cemented on teeth that have cracked, extensively decayed, or otherwise been damaged. Although they sometimes extend down onto the root surface, crowns essentially replace the outer aspect of the “crown” part of a natural tooth, so it makes sense that the restorations are called “crowns.”

When affixed, the crown fully encases the portion of the damaged tooth that sits above the gum line. Crowns are custom made to fit over each tooth. They can be made of a variety of different materials, including ceramics, porcelain-and-metal, gold, or resin.

WHEN ARE DENTAL CROWNS USED?

Dentists install crowns to perform several important functions. They protect weak teeth, restore broken teeth, prevent cracked teeth from breaking further, and support teeth that have large fillings. Variants of crowns are also used to hold dental bridges in place. In each case, the crown supports or replaces a structure that no longer works on its own.

Whenever teeth are badly damaged, cracked, broken, or misshapen, crowns are the most effective solution. Crowns restore the appearance, shape, and alignment of a damaged tooth. After a crown is cemented in place, it’s usually the only visible part of the tooth. Crowns are made to look like natural teeth, so they don’ t stand out or look odd inside the mouth.

HOW DO DENTAL CROWNS WORK?

Crowns fit on teeth much the same way sewing thimbles fit on fingertips – they fit over the top of a tooth and protect what’s underneath it. They’re cemented in place and, once affixed, act as a new top for the tooth while holding it together and keeping it from breaking apart.

Crowns are constructed of very resilient and durable materials. They’re designed to endure the traumas of chewing just as effectively as the rest of your teeth. Think of a crown as a cover for the top (visible) portion of your tooth. After the dentist cements the crown to your damaged tooth, it essentially becomes a part of that tooth.

HOW ARE DENTAL CROWNS INSTALLED?

First, your dentist will apply anesthetic to numb the tooth getting the crown and the surrounding gum tissue. Then, they’ll use a dental drill and an abrasive bur to remove the outer surface of the tooth on the top and all sides, creating enough room for the crown to be placed. If there’s not enough of the tooth left to support the crown, they may first add a crown buildup to create a sound foundation on which the crown would sit. The dentist will then make an impression of the tooth using dental impression paste, putty, or a digital scanner. They send this impression to a dental laboratory to actually make the crown.

It usually takes about two to three weeks to get the crown back from the dental laboratory after the dentist sends them the impression. It’s not good for the tooth to leave it uncovered over that time, so your dentist will install a temporary crown during your initial visit. When the permanent crown arrives back at ImmediaDent’s office, you’ll have a second appointment with the dentist to install it. The temporary crown will be removed and the new crown will be adjusted to properly fit your tooth and bite. Dentists then use a special cement to affix the crown to the tooth. When the cement cures, the crown is firmly attached to the tooth.

WHY DO DENTAL CROWNS HELP?

Crowns restore the shape, strength, functionality, and appearance of a damaged tooth. After you have one place, you’ll be able to use your tooth to chew again without risking damage to what’s underneath it. Crowns protect the vulnerable part of the tooth by physically holding it together and shielding it from damage.

Crowns are also important to restoring and maintaining the structural integrity of your mouth and bite. When a tooth decays or breaks, it leaves a gap. That gap can create further problems when it interferes with your bite or when other teeth migrate into it. By filling that gap, crowns restore your mouth’s proper structure. Last but not least, crowns also restore the appearance of your mouth, as they are mostly indistinguishable from natural teeth.

 

Crowns are not the answer for every kind of tooth problem, but they might be the answer to yours. If you think you need a crown, or you’re having any other kind of tooth problem, give ImmediaDent a call right away.

Whatever your dental health problem, our experts are prepared to offer a solution. Remember: you should never have to tolerate mouth or tooth pain. So don’t: call us today instead!

Braces.jpg
24/Aug/2019

Braces While wearing them, some patients may struggle with various problems in their dental care. It can be difficult to adjust to the braces and continue to take care of one’s teeth. The good news is that many of these problems are entirely avoidable. Here is what you need to know :

Gum Disease
While wearing braces, patients throughout California and elsewhere, are at a greater risk for developing gum disease. This condition typically occurs as a result of bacteria building up along the gum line. Patients may experience inflammation, bleeding, and irritation as the bacteria becomes trapped in the gums. If left untreated, the condition may worsen to the point that the gums start to recede and pockets form in the gum tissue. This can lead to further irritation, bone loss, and decay. People wearing braces are at particular risk for this condition because of how difficult it is to clean around the gums. Dr. Maryam can show you how to properly clean your teeth in order to prevent gum disease.

Cavities
Since it is difficult to clean teeth while wearing braces, there is an increased risk of getting a cavity. We understand the increased risk may frighten people away from braces, but we have the tools to help you keep clean teeth during this process. The metal brackets and wires placed onto your teeth create spaces where food, bacteria, and plaque can easily become trapped. At Manhattan Beach Orthodontics, we will recommend that patients use special tools to brush around their brackets and take extra time to make sure that teeth get as clean as possible. Getting your teeth cleaned on a regular basis is another way to prevent cavities.

Staining
Staining is one of the common problems that can occur with braces. Food can gather around the brackets, staining the teeth when a patient does not remove it quickly. Since it can be difficult to clean teeth with braces, many people will end up with a white spot where the bracket was. Thus, the rest of the tooth will look yellow in comparison. This problem is even more common with children since it is harder for them to take care of their teeth and braces. We recommend that adults have a teeth whitening procedure after getting braces taken off in order to remove any stains that have developed during the course of the treatment.

Bad Breath
Bad breath is a common problem that people throughout California struggle with. Typical causes include the food that you eat, along with an infection or poor oral hygiene. In addition to staying away from too much garlic, we recommend that patients have their teeth cleaned several times a year in order to remove plaque and bacteria that could be causing the smell. People wearing braces or an oral appliance need to be careful to brush thoroughly because things like a retainer can easily hold onto smells.

Demineralization
Dr. Maryam helps patients to avoid common problems with braces and demineralization is a problem near the top of the list. This condition can occur due to acid attacking the teeth. People that suffer from acid reflux or eat foods that are high in acid content are at the greatest risk for this occurring. Demineralization results in white, scar-like marks forming on the teeth near where the bracket once was. This can also create extreme sensitivity since the enamel is broken down, leaving both dentin and nerve endings exposed.

Loose Bracket
As an orthodontics provider, we find that many of our patients will get a loose bracket at some point during their treatment. The brackets are secured to the teeth using a resin composite. When eating hard foods like nuts, the bracket can become loose or even pop off. This can lead to severe discomfort for the surrounding cheeks. We suggest using a special wax that can be placed around and on top of the bracket until you can get to our office. This will help you to remain comfortable. We can explain more about the wax product when you visit our office.

Broken Wire
A broken wire tops the chart of common problems with braces. By eating something hard, you can cause your wire to become loose. When it does, it may poke you in the cheek or other areas of your mouth, causing severe discomfort. While it may be tempting to, Dr. Maryam recommends that you do not cut the wire on your own; wait until you come into our office to deal with the loose wire. That way there is no risk of it accidentally getting swallowed.

Broken Rubber Bands
This is a simple one and if the rubber bands surrounding your brackets become loose, schedule an appointment to have them replaced. While it is quick and easy to do so, a professional must complete the process quickly before the wire or brackets become impacted.

Loose Bands or Spacers
Bands and spacers help make the necessary room for teeth to move into the right position. From time to time, they can get loose due to what a person eats. Only a professional can secure them in place or replace them entirely. Some patients may try to take care of this on their own and only create more problems in the process.

Veneers-1200x904.jpg

Veneers and Crown Which Option Is Right for You?

If you’re considering ways to restore your teeth and enhance your smile, then you have two great options with crowns and veneers. Both alternatives are popular, and h can achieve great results.

Although both treatments will improve the appearance of your smile, there are some key differences between them which means it is important to choose the right option for your particular situation. This quick guide will give you all the information you need before discussing your treatment options with your dentist.

What are veneers and crowns?

Both crowns and veneers are forms of dental restoration. They work by adding a covering to an existing tooth to improve its appearance or function. The main difference between a veneer and a crown is how much of the original tooth is removed, how thick the material covering the tooth is, and how much of the tooth is covered. Both crowns and veneers are effective in improving the aesthetic appearance of teeth.

A veneer is usually made of wafer-thin porcelain and is bonded to the front of a tooth. The porcelain is color-matched to your natural teeth. Veneers are strong but brittle, and sharp or repeated impacts can dislodge or crack them.

A crown encases the entire tooth. It can be made of metal, porcelain or a combination of both. It is usually around double the thickness of a veneer, making it more durable and resistant to cracking than a veneer.

Differences in tooth preparation

Veneers are considered a more conservative treatment than crowns. Less of the tooth needs to be removed in order to place a veneer. Your dentist will usually just remove a thin layer of tooth enamel from the front of the tooth and will not normally need to touch the core or the back of the tooth.

Crowns require between 60% and 75% of the existing visible tooth to be trimmed away before the crown is placed. This typically means two to four times as much tooth reduction as veneers.

There is sometimes a grey area in the preparation required for veneers and crowns. Occasionally, in situations where veneers are being used to correct alignment, teeth being prepared for veneers may be accompanied with the more aggressive trimming characteristic of crowns. This can create some confusion between which type of treatment is being used.

When are veneers the best choice?

Veneers are a great choice when the issues you want to address are relatively minor and aesthetic in nature. Veneers are an excellent solution for problems such as badly stained teeth, chipped teeth, minor cracks in teeth, small gaps between the teeth and superficial misalignment. In these cases, veneers can significantly improve the overall color and regularity in the appearance of the teeth, delivering a much-improved smile.

Except in some very specific circumstances, once a veneer has been applied to a tooth, it will always require covering going forward. You might need a replacement veneer, or the tooth could be further reduced allowing the placement of a crown. Veneers are just as permanent as a crown and shouldn’t be chosen on the basis that they are either temporary or reversible.

When are crowns the best choice?

Crowns are typically needed instead of a veneer when there are more fundamental issues with existing teeth. These situations include teeth that are badly broken or cracked, or where root canal treatment has been needed. The crown is used to keep the tooth intact and protect it from any further damage that might lead to extraction. Once the crown is cemented firmly into place, it becomes the new outside surface for the tooth with the nub of the original tooth safely inside.

Another situation where crowns are a better choice than veneers is where the edge of the tooth has been damaged by grinding. A veneer only covers the front of a tooth, not the edges. Therefore teeth that have been ground down usually require crowns to improve their appearance.

Crowns are effective solutions for damaged teeth and can deliver a significant change in both the color and shape of existing teeth. Once a crown has been placed, the tooth will always require some sort of covering.

Differences in insurance coverage

The cost of crowns and veneers is very similar. However, veneers are usually considered a purely aesthetic treatment and are therefore very unlikely to be covered under dental insurance. As crowns are typically used to treat both functional and aesthetic issues, they are more likely to be covered by dental insurance.

Maintaining your perfect smile

With proper care, your veneers or crowns should last for approximately ten years. The porcelain used for veneers and crowns is reasonably stain-resistant, but without proper brushing and flossing, they can still become discolored. Whitening and bleaching treatments don’t work on these sorts of restorations, so it’s particularly important to maintain oral hygiene and good eating habits. It’s also important to take care not to damage your crowns and veneers by biting on hard substances so that you prolong their lifespan and your beautiful smile.

A Dental Crown is supposed to be the last step in tooth restoration, but this does not mean that you’ll never have to worry about dental crown problems and remedies. Even though a crown is a long-term solution for repairing damaged teeth, complications can still arise.

The following are some of the most Dental Crown problems, as well as their solutions:

1. DENTAL DECAY- Dental Crown

If you do not practice good oral hygiene after getting a crown, plaque may accumulate at the margin where the crown and the tooth meet. Though the crown cannot decay, your tooth still can.

The best remedy for this is to brush and floss your teeth twice daily. If you already have a small decay in an accessible area, the doctor can place a filling. However, if the decay is underneath the crown, the doctor will need to take off the dental crown, remove the decay, place a new core, and make a new dental cap. Since the cost of a dental crown is quite high, it is better and cheaper to take care of your teeth to prevent dental decay.

2. SENSITIVITY AND DISCOMFORT

In the days after having your crown installed, you may notice that your teeth are sensitive to hot or cold foods. This often happens when the tooth enamel is trimmed away during the crowning process and the dentin is exposed. This means that the crown does not completely cover your tooth.

If this is the case, your dentist can apply a solution to the crowned tooth to protect the exposed dentin from temperature changes. He/she may also advise you to use toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth.

3. Loose  Dental Crown

Tooth decay or eating sticky foods could cause your crown to become loose. If this happens, you should contact your dentist immediately. This is because the loose crown allows bacteria to leak into your remaining tooth, causing further decay and damage.

4. CHIPS OR FRACTURES

Porcelain is not as tough as your natural teeth. Therefore, dental crowns made of porcelain or porcelain infused metal can sometimes chip, though this is rare. If the chip is small, your dentist can use composite resin to repair the crown. However, if the chip or crack is extensive, the only solution is to replace the crown.

5. NERVE ISSUES

All teeth have a soft pulp where all the nerves are located. The process of getting a dental crown sometimes traumatizes these nerves. This could cause discomfort ranging from mild sensitivity to excruciating pain. You might notice symptoms of nerve issues soon after getting a dental crown, or even several months after the procedure.

The best remedy for this problem is to give your tooth a root canal and get a new crown.

6. ALLERGIC REACTIONS

This is a very rare problem that only affects people who are allergic to any of the metals used to make the crown. The only remedy is to get a new crown made from different materials.

7. A DARK LINE AT THE GUM

This is very common with crowns made of porcelain infused with metal. This dark line is simply the metal of the crown showing through. While it does not pose any health concerns, it is not aesthetically pleasing. If the dark line forms in the front of your mouth, the dentist can replace your crown with an all-ceramic or all-porcelain one.

WRAPPING UP

Dentists shy away from using the word ‘permanent’ because even the most durable solutions may encounter problems. If you experience any of these dental crown problems, contact a dentist for a remedy that will solve the issue and ease your discomfort or pain.

gums-1200x600.jpg

Pale gums may indicate that a person has anemia, which is often the result of an iron deficiency. However, if the gums are white or painful, the cause may be more serious.

we spoke about it before in our previous blog, if you missed it you can Click Here

Leukoplakia

Oral leukoplakia can cause uniform, thin, white patches to develop on the gums. These alternate with, or are bordered by, regular gum or mucous tissues.

The white patches may have raised, white nodules or be speckled with red.

Leukoplakia patches can develop anywhere in the mouth and cannot be rubbed or scrubbed off.

The cause of this condition is unclear, but it seems to occur more often in people who smoke, consume a lot of alcohol, or have poor oral hygiene.

In many cases, leukoplakia patches are harmless. However, they can transform and become cancerous.

Anyone who notices these patches should speak with a doctor or dentist. Depending on the patches’ size and location, as well as individual risk factors such as smoking, a doctor may choose to monitor leukoplakia patches or surgically remove them.

Menopause

The hormonal changes associated with menopause are known to decrease blood flow, which can cause the gums to become pale and dry.

A form of infection called menopausal gingivostomatitis can lead to pale, dry gums that may bleed.

Hormone therapies can treat these symptoms. When a fungal species is responsible for gingivostomatitis, a person may need to use a topical antifungal cream, such as nystatin or clotrimazole.

Oral lichen planus

In a person with oral lichen planus, a film of web-like, slightly raised white threads develop throughout the gums’ mucus membranes.

To diagnose this condition, a doctor will usually take a biopsy, a small portion of tissue from the affected areas, to rule out other medical issues.

Cases of erosive oral lichen planus involving ulcers, or open sores, can be treated using topical corticosteroids or systemic steroids.

There is no cure for oral lichen planus, and treatment will focus on limiting the number of flare-ups and the severity of symptoms. Eating a healthful, balanced diet, staying hydrated, exercising, and quitting smoking can help to manage the condition.

Pale Gums But When to see a doctor

Pale gums are a common sign of anemia, and mild anemia can be managed at home by increasing the intake of iron. However, severe cases can be life-threatening.

Speak with a doctor or dentist about pale gums as soon as possible. Receiving treatment early can reduce the risk of complications.

Seek medical advice if symptoms of infection accompany pale gums. These symptoms include:

  • bleeding gums
  • swollen, painful, or tender gums
  • gums that recede around the teeth
  • very bad breath
  • fever
  • loose teeth
  • difficulty or pain swallowing
  • gum abscesses
  • a metallic taste in the mouth
  • pain in the jaw or the face

Anyone who suspects that they have abnormal oral growths, such as those that occur in lichen planus or leukoplakia, should see a doctor or dentist and discuss treatment options.

When pale gums are associated with menopause or heavy menstrual periods, a person may want to speak with a doctor about hormone therapies that can reduce symptoms.

Tips for healthy gums no more Pale Gums

Practicing good oral hygiene is the easiest way to keep the gums healthy.

The following tips can help a person maintain good oral hygiene:

  • brush the teeth for at least 120 seconds twice daily or more often
  • floss every day
  • rinse the mouth with a product containing fluoride once or twice daily
  • rinse or brush after consuming sugary foods or drinks
  • replace toothbrushes or toothbrush heads every few months or when they look worn
  • exercise for at least 30 minutes a day
  • visit a dentist regularly
  • avoid smoking or using tobacco products

It is also important to eat a healthful, balanced diet. This should involve plenty of whole fruits, vegetables, and grains. The diet should include good sources of iron, such as lentils, chickpeas, beans, and lean meats.

Outlook

Pale gums what causes it?

Pale gums may indicate that a person has anemia, which is often the result of an iron deficiency. However, if the gums are white or painful, the cause may be more serious.

Healthy gums should be a relatively consistent shade of pink. They may appear slightly lighter around the teeth and darker around the sides of the mouth. One person’s gums may be naturally a little paler or darker than another’s.

When an individual notices that the color of their gums is changing, they should speak with a doctor, especially if additional symptoms are causing concern.

Read on to learn more about the causes of pale gums. We also describe accompanying symptoms, treatments, and when to see a doctor.

Pale gums Causes and symptoms

Treatment and the number of symptoms will vary, depending on the cause of pale gums.

Below is a list of underlying conditions, their other symptoms, and their treatments:

Anemia

Anemia occurs when the body is not getting enough oxygen-rich blood. A lack of blood can cause some tissues to grow pale.

In addition to pale gums, a person with anemia may notice the following symptoms:

  • inexplicable exhaustion or weakness
  • shortness of breath
  • pale or yellowish skin and eyes
  • headaches
  • heart palpitations

Anemia often results from a lack of iron, folate, or vitamin B-12.

Otherwise, a person may have too few blood cells or not enough hemoglobin. In people with sickle cell anemia, the blood cells are abnormally shaped.

Medical conditions can also lead to anemia or increase a person’s risk. Some involve blood loss. They include:

  • very heavy menstruation
  • pregnancy
  • liver, spleen, or kidney conditions
  • hypothyroidism
  • bleeding in the stomach or intestines, which may result from gastrointestinal ulcers, cancers, abnormal growths, colitis, or swelling of the large intestine

Certain medications, particularly those for chemotherapy, can increase a person’s risk of developing anemia. Others develop the condition after taking too many nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which leads to internal bleeding.

Treatment may be as simple as taking prescribed iron pills for at least 6 months. These pills are best taken with food and citrus juices, especially orange juice. It can also help to eat foods rich in iron, such as dark leafy greens and fortified cereals and bread.

When very heavy periods are responsible for anemia, a person may benefit from hormone medications that lighten menstruation.

Certain foods can interfere with the body’s absorption of iron. A person with anemia may wish to avoid:

  • coffee and tea
  • alcohol
  • whole grain products
  • dairy products

Invisible Aligners is for Everybody that wants a great smile, but a lot of us need help getting there. More and more people are having success with clear orthodontic devices called aligners.

Braces use brackets connected by wires to encourage teeth to move. Aligners are a series of tight-fitting custom-made mouthpieces that slip over the teeth. Invisalign is the largest producer of clear aligners, but it’s not the only brand. Others include Clear Correct, Inman Aligner, and Smart Moves.

Clear (or “invisible”) aligners aren’t for everyone. Your orthodontist or dentist will help you decide what’s best for you. Ask them if they have experience treating people with aligners. Get references or before-and-after images of their patients.

Can anyone get invisible teeth aligners?

Because the invisible aligners are custom-built for a tight fit, they are best for adults or teens. Straightening a child’s teeth is more complicated. Young people, and their mouths, are still growing and developing; the doctor must think about this when setting up treatment.

Clear orthodontic aligners are typically used for patients who have mild or moderately crowded teeth, or have minor spacing issues. Patients who have severe crowding or spacing problems — or severe underbites, overbites, or crossbites — may need more complex treatment.

How do they work?

Once a dentist or orthodontist decides how to correct your bite, they’ll make a plan for moving your teeth. If you get the clear aligners, you’ll be fitted for several versions that make slight adjustments to move your teeth over the treatment time.

They’re made from a clear plastic or acrylic material and fit tightly over the teeth, but can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. You’ll get a new aligner every few weeks to continue moving the teeth into the desired position.

How long does it take to straighten teeth using invisible aligners?

Treatment time with invisible teeth aligners is based on how much the teeth need to be moved or rotated. The more your bite is off or the more crooked your teeth, the longer it will take. Treatment usually takes between 10 and 24 months. But if you’re an adult who had braces as a child, and your teeth shifted slightly over the years, you may need invisible teeth aligners for as little as 10 weeks.

Because invisible aligners are not as precise as traditional braces, some patients may require a “refinement” of their teeth using braces for a few months to make other, smaller adjustments at the end of the treatment.

Why use invisible aligners instead of braces?

Avoiding “metal mouth” isn’t the only reason to choose a clear aligner. Unlike braces, aligners can be removed, making it easier to brush and floss well; that helps maintain better overall oral health.

Is teeth straightening just about having a great smile?

Correcting crooked or misaligned teeth isn’t just about creating a picture-perfect smile. It can help protect the long-term health of your teeth.

Before Dental Implant Surgery

When dental implant is recommended by a dentist, the preparation before starting on dental implant procedure includes:

  1. Seeing a dentist for a comprehensive oral examination.
  2. Keeping healthy. If there is a medical condition, consult your doctor before starting the treatment. In general, if the medical condition is well controlled, dental implant surgery can be done as it is only a small surgery under local anesthesia.

Dental Implant process

  1. The dentist performs oral examination and oral preparation.
  2. Take x-rays to see the amount of bones and organs involved.
  3. Take impression of the patient’s mouth to plan the treatment.
  4. In some cases, additional 3D CT Scan may be required.
  5. Dentist perform surgery to embed the implant at appropriate position. In some cases, it may be necessary to have a bone augmentation prior to implant surgery.
  6. Wait for the bone to integrate with implant for 2-3 months depending on factors such as the amount and quality of patient’s bone, etc.
  7. When the implant is firmly integrated to the bone, the dentist will take impression of patient’s teeth to make crowns, bridges or dentures to attach on dental implants.
  8. Follow-up appointment will be set up for proper monitoring.

How to take care of yourself after the Surgery

  • Brush thoroughly
  • Floss everyday
  • Avoid hard foods such as cartilage
  • See a dentist every 3-6 months for dental checkup

Can Dental Implants Be Fitted on Same Day My Tooth Is Extracted?

In some cases, dental implants can be fitted immediately after your tooth is removed, but many factors must be taken into consideration before the procedure is performed for the sake of your safety. Namely, our dentists need to assess the number of implants you require and the health of your jaw bone.

If we can fit the implants on the same day as your tooth is removed, it’s important that you take care to keep them in good condition to prevent complications from arising. We highly recommend sticking to soft food for the first few months to avoid causing damage to your dental implant in Thailand. If you choose us to perform the procedure, we’ll carry out a risk evaluation before administering the treatment.

Many dentists agree that implants are the most effective way to replace lost or extracted teeth because of their natural appearance and the safety of the procedure. The entire process can be completed within minutes, and before long, you won’t even notice that you have dental implants. If you want to book a consultation to learn more about dental implants in Bangkok, don’t hesitate to call one of our specialists.
