Root canal , Apicoectomy and Cancer

What Is Apicoectomy And Why It Is Done?

root canal procedure is a treatment to save a damaged, infected or badly decayed tooth.

Although root canal infections can be treated by conventional root canal therapy, but in some cases when the infection persists after root canal treatment or re-treatment, an APICOECTOMY is considered to be important to solve the infection and treat the problem.

  1. What Does Apicoectomy Mean?
  • Apicoectomy is a microsurgical treatment procedure where the very end of the tooth’s root (Apex) is removed along with the infection attached to the root tip. The apex is sealed with a filling to prevent micro leakage.

  1. What About Apicoectomy Procedure I Need To Know?
  • The endodontist gives local anesthetic to the already RCT treated tooth to numb the surgical site of the patient.
  • The gum and bone is cut and lifted to access and visualize the root tip/apex.
  • The root tip is resected and the infected tissue is curetted. The end part of root canal is cleaned and sealed with biocompatible sealer material. The endodontist then sutures the tissue back in the original place.

  1. Does The Procedure Hurt?
  • The endodontist will give local anesthesia to make sure that the treatment is painless and more comfortable.
  • Other than that, patients are prescribed with appropriate pain medications to help ease the discomfort.

  1. How Long Does The Apicoectomy Treatment Take?
  • The treatment is generally done in single sitting appointment.
  • The procedure takes about 1-2 hours depending upon the tooth location and complexity of the roots.

  1. If The Patient Doesn’t Want The Treatment?
  • If the patient is not willing for the treatment, then the tooth needs to be extracted and an implant can be surgically placed to replace the missing tooth.

Root Canal and Cancer

  • In new studies, Researchers found that patients had a 45% reduced risk of cancer with multiple endodontic treatments.

Till date, there is no valid, scientific evidence that proves any link between root canal-treated teeth and disease elsewhere in the body.

 A 2013 study published in a journal found that a patient’s risk of cancer doesn’t alter after a root canal therapy. Researchers also found that patients with multiple endodontic treatments had a 45% reduced risk of cancer.

There are also few myths about Root Canal Treatment shared by a large section of people onto which we would like to shed some light.

  1. MYTH –The Root canal treatment is painful.
  • TRUTH – In fact Root canal treatment doesn’t cause pain, it actually relieves it.
  1. MYTH – Root canal treatment makes you ill/sick.
  • TRUTH – There is no substantial, scientific valid proof which links root canal-treated teeth and disease elsewhere in the body.
  1. MYTH – An excellent substitute to root canal treatment is extraction of the tooth.
  • TRUTH – Saving your natural teeth, is always the ultimate best option if the tooth is not damaged beyond repair.
  1. MYTH – Root canal therapies often requires many visits, wasting your precious time.
  • TRUTH – Now due to introduction of advanced technologies, Root canal therapies can be completed in one or maybe two appointments.
  1. MYTH – If you’re not feeling any pain in your tooth, you do not need a root canal treatment.
  • TRUTH – Teeth are not always painful that require root canal therapy.

Immediate Implants in the Aesthetic Zone

Dentistry has come a long way & the most foreseeable treatment plan to replace missing teeth is Dental Implant. However, the biggest concern about the success of implants in the anterior region is esthetics.

The two prime factors for the implant success in esthetic zone are the amount of alveolar bone present and soft tissue around the implant. The objective criteria for any kind of dental treatment justifying esthetics are gingival health, gingival zenith, tooth long axis, tooth characterization, surface texture & color,interdental contact point,incisal edge configuration, lower lip line, smile symmetry, midline & occlusal plan orientatin.Out of all these factors gingival zenith is an important factor to look for which affects others, because without its control the dental implant esthetics can be compromised.

Therefore,in order to maintain an harmonious relationship between intra oral components such as tooth shape,size,shade,position,gingival architecture level along with extra oral components such as smile line, vertical component of the face are rudimentary to dental esthetics & should be evaluated clinically before implant placement. Post extraction a cascade of healing process results in 25% of bone resorption. This process ultimately leads to resorption jeopardizing esthetics.

Hence the process to salvage the bone resorption begins with atraumatic resorption where the buccal bone is not lost and placement of immediate implants becomes quite easy.

At the same time implants placed immediately after extraction maximizes preservation of the remaining bone structure, maintaineance of soft tissue profile through temporary provisional, decreased total number of surgical phases and reduction for comprehensive time.

 This procedure has become a routine since they have as much as survival rates as compared to implants placed post extraction. This protocol of immediately placing implants is widely accepted by the clinicians especially by the patients with maximum comfort & short treatment duration. Amidst all the procedures the most important criteria probably for the best outcome are intact bone wall & an ideal implant position.

SMILES FOR TWO: TIPS TO MAINTAIN GOOD ORAL HEALTH FOR YOU AND YOUR BABY

                                                    By. Dr.Rajat Sachdeva

INTRODUCTION

Pregnancy is a unique period during a women’s life and is characterized by complex physiological changes, which may adversely affect oral health. Research indicates that the health of your mouth mirrors the condition of your whole body; when your mouth is healthy, chances of your overall health are good too. At the same time, various dental treatments like preventive, diagnostic and restorative are safe during pregnancy and also helps in improving and maintaining good oral health.

Evidence suggests that most infants and young children acquire caries- causing bacteria from their mothers. Providing education and counseling to pregnant woman to promote oral health behaviors may reduce the transmission of such bacteria from mothers to infants and young children, thereby preventing onset of caries.

ORAL HEALTH AND PREGNANCY: If you are pregnant or considering becoming pregnant, keep your oral health in mind.

Pregnancy causes hormonal changes that may put you at increase risk of developing gum disease which, in turn, can affect the health of your developing baby. Recent research suggests a link between gum disease and pre-term, low-birth-weight babies. Regardless, practicing preventive dental care during pregnancy has been proven to protect oral and overall health, and is safe for mothers and children.

PREGNANCY-RELATED ORAL CONDITIONS

Pregnancy hormones cause changes throughout the body – even in your mouth.  It’s important for you to take good care of your teeth and gums while pregnant.

Below are some tips to help you to maintain good oral health before, during and after pregnancy.

BEFORE YOU GET PREGNANT 

If your last dental visit took place more than 6 months ago or if any oral health problems were identified, try to get dental appointment before you get pregnant. In that way, careful assessment of your teeth and gum tissue (gingiva) can be done. And any oral health problem can be treated before you get pregnant.

DURING PREGNANCY

Dental care is safe and essential during pregnancy. Tell the dental office that you are pregnant and your due date. This information will help the dental team provide the best care for you. Schedule a dental exam in your first trimester. Scaling and root planning to control periodontal disease can be undertaken safely; avoid using metronidazole in first year.

As a precautionary measure, dental treatments during the first trimester and second half of the third trimester should be avoided as much as possible, except in the case of an emergency. However, routine dental care can be received during the second trimester. All elective dental procedures should be postponed until after the delivery.

Avoid dental X-rays during pregnancy. If X-rays are essential (such as in a dental emergency), your dentist will use extreme caution to safeguard you and your baby. Advances in technology have made X-rays much safer today than in past decades.

Regular periodontal (gum) exams are very important, because pregnancy causes hormonal changes that put you at increased risk for periodontal disease characterized by red, swollen and tender gums that are more likely to bleed. Women who already have gingivitis may find that their symptoms become more severe. Pay particular attention to any changes in your gums during pregnancy.

NUTRITION AND ORAL HEALTH: Choose healthy, balanced diet that may include fruits, vegetables, protein, whole grains like cereals, bread, or crackers; and dairy products like cheese, milk, or unsweetened yogurt. Drink plenty of water or milk instead of juice. Try to avoid between-meal snacks; if you do snack, opt for nutritious, low sugar foods like raw fruits and fresh vegetables. Avoid sugary snacks. Sweet cravings are common during pregnancy. However, keep in mind that the more frequently you snack, the greater the chance of developing tooth decay. Your baby’s teeth begin to develop between the third and sixth month of pregnancy. Eat a healthy diet that includes calcium, protein, phosphorus and vitamins A, C and D to give your baby’s smile a healthy start.

MAINTAIN GOOD ORAL HYGIENE: Brush your teeth with fluoridated toothpaste twice a day. Clean between the teeth with floss or interdental cleaner at least once a day to keep your mouth healthy. Rinse your mouth out with water or a mouth rinse if you suffer from morning sickness and have bouts of frequent vomiting. After meal, chew xylitol-containing gum or mints etc, this can help to reduce bacteria that can cause tooth decay.

AFTER THE PREGNANCY

If you experienced any gum problems during your pregnancy, see your dentist soon after delivery to have your entire mouth examined and periodontal health evaluated.

We look forward to helping you upgrade your smile and your quality of life!

Are Dental Implants Really Successful For Many Years?

Dental implants are durable and if properly treated it may even last for many years. Success  rate of dental implants will likely depend upon the capacity of your dentist too. Such implant is placed on the jaw and holds a different tooth or bridge in place without the need for the nearby teeth for support for the new one. We must bear in mind and also be safe having one of these types of implants since there are many dentists are performing this treatment but the procedure isn’t good.
A cosmetic dentist who has competed in implant surgery must first gaze level of bone before this treatment. Adequate height and width in the bone need to be providing implant once placed. A dental implant procedure enables another of your tooth having one artificially made titanium screw-formed tooth. The screw has been produced with careful and thorough process using sophisticated technology tools.

There two primary types of low cost dental implants commonly used by doctors:

Subperiosteal Implants are positioned at the top right from the jaw instead of inside the bone, while using metal posts to help keep the artificial tooth in place. These can be beneficial to individuals who’ve shorter bones in the jaw. Another one is Endosteal implants. These are the most generally used implants and place into the jawbone. They secure the newest tooth in place and they are more generally comfortable with people who have bridges or detachable veneers.
