PORCELAIN LAMINATE VENEERS

Also called as PLV

Veneers are translucent ceramics bonded on the prepared surface of natural tooth/teeth by transparent luting resin.

They exhibit fluorescence and reflect and transmit light exactly as natural tooth structure.

STRENGTH

  • Normally they are weak in strength in comparison to porcelain fused to metal (PFM) or all ceramic crowns.
  • But once they are bonded to the prepared tooth surface, they integrate with the tooth structure and become extremely durable.
  • It also requires less invasive tooth preparation and the natural strength of the tooth is also maintained contributing to the longevity of the tooth and the veneer too.

LONGEVITY

The union of etched enamel and porcelain combined with the bonding composite resin luting agent with a silane coupling agent, enables the dentist to perform restorations that are solid as well as long lasting

 “The Smile Is The Reflection Of An Individual”

 Creating natural looking smile

A pleasing smile is important to the patient’s morale and self-esteem while the loss of it will have effects negatively.

Attention to the details examined by dentist is very crucial as it will help in getting the desired results from the technician too and appreciation from the patient.

The dentist’s skill, awareness and understanding the patient’s needs, personality and psychological state will lead to acceptance of the proposed treatment plan.

“Aesthetic Dentistry Is The Art Of Dentistry In Its Purest Form”

Dentofacial Attractiveness

  • An attractive smile has always been the focal point of attention.
  • Esthetic dentistry seeks not only to improve the Esthetic appearance, but to improve the patient’s self-esteem and it should not be underestimated.
  • A display of pleasing intact dentition is the key element in the creation of an attractive smile.
  • As it has been said “Better smiles are being equated with better living.”
  • A beautiful smile seems to reflect a style of living, and enchantment of facial beauty is why patients are seeking elective dental care.

 New concept of dentistry

Esthetic dentistry has opened an entirely new world for most clinicians and changed the lives of hundreds and thousands of patients in a very positive way.

 Esthetics and function

It is the esthetic dentist’s responsibility to produce treatment plan that is esthetically pleasing, functional as well as biocompatible.

 Natural looking restorations

Restoring the tooth and achieving the esthetic harmony by maintaining the natural morphological state of the tooth.

LASERS IN ENDODONTICS

  • Endodontic procedure carried out by conventional methods may not be successful in spite of utmost care.
  • Despite the mechanical removal, irrigation and disinfection of canals, the bacteria can still persist which cannot be reached by conventional techniques.
  • As the technology has advanced, now lasers are used in endodontic procedures to improve the prognosis of the treatment of tooth.
  • Laser light penetrates upto >1000 micrometre into the dentin and provides a distinct advantage since the bacteria can immigrate upto 1000 micrometre into tubules.
  • When in contact with laser, cell membrane gets destroyed due to the impact of direct heat and this damage is enough to stop the growth of the bacteria depending on the wavelength and frequency of laser irradiation used by the dentist.
  • It is a very effective tool for disinfecting the root canal after mechanical root canal treatment as it has sufficient penetration depth.
  • It is effective in curved canals also and the energy is transported by thin flexible fibres which have diameter of only 200 micrometer.
  • Laser eradicates the microbial flora of root canal and also has same effect on surrounding dentin without affecting the surrounding tissue and has good disinfection mechanism without causing pain and improving the prognosis of the endodontic treatment.

LASERS IN PREVENTIVE DENTISTRY

  • Laser treatment is becoming widely recognised and can be applied to prevent caries from developing and to reduce the progression of caries.
  • The mechanism of laser should be understood before a dentist could apply in his daily practice.
  • The Enamel surface of tooth is made of crystals called ‘Hydroxyapetite’ and it is permeable in nature therefore allowing diffusion of ions.
  • During laser treatment, moderate heat(CO2 laser produces temp > 1000 degree celcius) is produced which changes the composition of Enamel from ‘hydroxyapetite’ to ‘carbonated apetite’ in which there is loss of water in the crystals, as a result the pores of Enamel shrink down to form ‘Microspace system’. The Microspace system provides a means for trapping Calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions which release during demineralization and acts as site for re-precipitation.
  • The trapped minerals phases inside the Enamel and impedes lesion formation and progression causing enhanced resistance against demineralization.
  • As the microspaces are smaller in size, it decreases the permeability of the Enamel thereby reducing the diffusion of ions in and out thereby reducing the demineralization process. Thus a seal is achieved and so is resistance to caries.
  • The Dentin also gets acid resistance as there is increased mineral content due to burning of organic matter from tissue so there is increased Calcium and Phosphate found in recrystallized Dentin.

How to overcome dental anxiety

Have a visit due to your dentist that you have been avoiding for a long time? Is there a general sense of fear associated with that dental chair and the various sounds and noises it produces? Do not worry. You are not the only one. The idea of going to a dentist can cause as much anxiety as the pain that a decayed tooth may be causing. The responses are not age related. Different people could have different reactions dealing with dental anxiety. Some may be calm and composed and some may be total wrecks. A lot depends on the dentist and the environment he/ she creates for the patients. Understanding the patients and their levels of anxiety could be crucial in assessing their levels of anxiety and help them overcome it.

Assessment of dental anxiety

There are numerous ways available to assess dental anxiety, both in children and adults. A five point scale that is reliable and quick to administer. It has cut-offs for mild, moderate, and phobic levels of anxiety.

Interventions for individuals with low levels of anxiety

 For children attending with low levels of dental fear, approaches that can be adopted include:

  • Rapport building: like use of a magic trick. The use of magic trick increases cooperation when compared to no intervention or the use of tell-show-do technique.
  • Voice control: using loud voice with deep tone is more effective in reducing disruptive behavior of a child & interaction more pleasurable than the normal voice level
  • Distraction: there are number of ways which can be used for distraction such as: the use of video-taped cartoons, audio-taped stories and video games. Distraction techniques are equally effective as relaxation-based techniques, and superior to no intervention.
  • Modeling: modeling has been used extensively with children and is generally most effective if the observed child is similar in age, gender and level of dental anxiety to the child watching, if the child enters and leaves the surgery without adverse consequences.
  • Environmental change: three studies have sought to make the dental environment more attractive to children attending the dental surgery.

Approaches can be used in patients with low dental fear:

  • Enhancing the sense of control: One of the most commonly used techniques to do this is the stop signal.  In this patient can raise the hand and give signal to the dentist.
  • Cognitive distraction: the patient is encouraged to think about something other than the dental situation, be in  a happy place or think of a less stress causing situation.
  • Environmental change: soothing smell of lavender in dental waiting area to reduce the immediate fear of the patient but it will not reduce the underlying cognitive factor.

Interventions for individuals with moderate levels of anxiety

 Patients with moderate levels of dental anxiety may benefit from the prior preparatory information.

  • Information about what will happen (procedural information)
  • Information about what sensations the individual will experience (sensory information)
  • Information about what the individual can do to cope with the situation (coping information).

Interventions for individuals with high levels of anxiety

Pharmacological management

This includes relative analgesia, conscious sedation and general anesthesia. These management techniques are not much used but there are ongoing needs for such services when patient is not regular to visit for treatment or to the point where they are in severe pain or with compromised oral health

Cognitive behavioural therapy

It is a synthesis of behaviour therapy and cognitive therapy and uses both behaviour modification techniques and cognitive restructuring procedures to change maladaptive beliefs and behaviours. Behavioural aspects of CBT include learning relaxation skills, conducting mini-experiments and systematic desensitization. An important principle underlying CBT is its focus on the ‘here and now’ as what started a problem is often not the same as what is keeping it going.

Something You Must Know Before Any Dental Implant

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed by your surgeon into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth. Dental implants can be helpful option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to an injury or some periodontal disease.

Available Types Of Dental Implants:

There are two types of dental implants and you must have a brief knowledge about them before going for Low Cost Dental Implants.

Endosteal Dental Implants:

This is the most commonly used type of implant which actually goes inside the bone. The various types include screws, blades surgically placed into the bone of your jaw. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth.

Sub periosteal Dental Implants:

These dental implants are placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework’s posts protruding through the gum holding the prosthesis teeth.

I would suggest for trying the services of Sachdeva Dental care instead of searching on Google. They are good in this work and even imparting training in several Dental Implant Courses.

Most of us also have this question before this kind of surgery. Am I a candidate for dental implant? Well, if you have lost your teeth then you are a candidate for this. Certainly good health is vital in this type of treatment too as there are few health conditions and diseases that can affect whether dental implants are right for you or not. If you are having uncontrolled diabetes, any sort of addiction, radiation to the jaws, uncontrolled periodontal disease and cancer may affect whether dental implants will fuse to your bone or not. Where and how such implants are placed requires a detailed assessment of your overall stomato-gnathic system within which the teeth function.componeers

This sort of surgery will yield to a great help for your smile if it is done by expert hands. I had shared about Best Dental Implant Delhi in this post. You should try them. Always remember, it is pretty necessary to let your dental surgeon know all about your past and present medical status along with all medications you are taking nowadays.
