Tips: How To Get Your Child To Brush Teeth

Here we present you with few tricks to encourage your children to enjoy brushing:

  1. Let your child pick his toothbrush. They may be attracted by Color, cartoon theme or with those toothbrushes that light up when squeezed, so there are plenty of choices available in the market.
  2. Practice makes them perfect. Let your child enjoy the brushing of teeth of his favorite animated toothbrush. When he’s done with brushing, give him a chance to brush his teeth by himself. Make sure his teeth and gums are thoroughly cleaned.
  3. Show your child the brushing technique. You should show them how you brush your teeth if they refuse to brush. Children enjoy copying what their parents do and they can get engaged in taking care of his oral health.
  4. Add spice to the brushing routine. While they try to brush their teeth, sing and dance along!
  5. Give your kids chewable tablets that turn plaque into pink color, and playfully convince them to brush away the color with their toothbrush.
  6. Make him understand that each tooth of his pearls is important. Let your child give a nickname to each tooth and remind not to leave any tooth alone without brushing.
  7. Don’t forget to praise your child after he learns slowly to brush properly and reward him for a well done job.
  8. Let them choose the flavor of the toothpaste that appeal to their taste and be sure to use toothpaste that is specially made for kids.

Why Did My Dentist Recommend a Root Canal?

Inside the tooth, under the white enamel and a hard layer called the dentin, is a soft tissue called the pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, and helps to grow the root of your tooth during development. In a fully developed tooth, the tooth can survive without the pulp because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it.

A root canal is a procedure that is recommended by your dentist in order to repair & save a badly damaged or infected tooth. This procedure involves removal of inflamed or infected pulp, careful cleaning & disinfecting it & then filling & sealing it with a material called gutta percha. The causes that affect pulp are a deep cavity approaching pulp, repetitive trauma to the tooth, a cracked tooth, faulty restoration.

Root canal is essentially a term that refers to the natural cavity that occurs within the core of a tooth. The nerve i.e. the pulp which is removed in the root canal treatment has no role in health & function of a tooth. Its only core function is to provide sensitivity towards hot & cold.

Why root canal treatment is recommended?

Pain: A toothache is the most common symptom of needing a root canal. The tooth may start to hurt spontaneously, in the middle of the night, or sometimes when the patient isn’t even using the affected tooth to eat or drink. The pain can progress to a very severe generalized headache that may cause the person to even forget what initially caused the pain. If the tooth is dead and has become abscessed, the patient will feel pain when he or she chews food or puts pressure on the tooth.

An Abscess:  may or may not produce swelling or bleeding around the tooth, and sometimes it causes significant swelling of the cheek, jaw, or throat. If this swelling is noticed, treatment needs are urgent.

It is very important, when feeling some pain around a tooth, to get a thorough examination with pulp vitality testing by a licensed dentist for a proper diagnosis.

What to expect during a root canal procedure?

  1. X-ray: If a dentist suspects you may need a root canal, he will first take x-rays to be certain of decay location.
  2. Anesthesia: Procedure is initiated with the administration of local anesthesia to the affected tooth.
  3. Pulpectomy: an opening is made & the diseased tooth pulp is removed.
  4. Filling: The roots that have been opened to get rid of the diseased pulp are filled with gutta-percha material & sealed off with cement.

 

Why Root Canal??

Saving the natural tooth with root canal treatment has many advantages:

  1. Efficient chewing
  2. Normal biting force and sensation
  3. Natural appearance
  4. Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain

Modern endodontic treatment is very similar to having a routine filling and usually can be completed in one or two appointments, depending on the condition of your tooth and your personal circumstances.

You can expect a comfortable experience during and after your appointment at Dr. Sachdeva’s Dental Institute.

STERILIZATION AND DISINFECTION

We at DR. SACHDEVA DENTAL CLINIC AND IMPLANT CENTER practice the disinfection and sterilization procedures essential for the infection control and prevention. Our center follows sterilization monitoring procedures recommended by American Dental Association (ADA).

 

Our AIM is to spread awareness about the importance of sterilization of equipments and about the advanced techniques we use to give a clean and germ free environment for our patients.

st

WHAT IS STERILIZATION?

Sterilization means any process that effectively kills or eliminates transmissible pathogenic agents (such as fungi, bacteria, viruses, spore forms, etc.) from a surface of equipment/instruments.

HOW IT’S DONE? AN OVERVIEW

  • We clean all the instruments thoroughly with hot water and then with spirit, kept wrapped in autoclave. Then instruments are kept in an ultrasonic cleaner to remove blood & fluid stains from inaccessible grooves.
  • All the cleaned equipment is sealed in a pouch.  Each pouch contains set of instruments required for single patient.
  • After Autoclave cycle, sealed pouches are kept in a UV chamber till they are taken out for use.  Ultraviolet rays in the chamber ensure that instruments remain in sterile condition when they are taken out for use on you.

WHAT SYSTEMS DO WE HAVE?

1.     SK 07 – AUTOCLAVE

  • TheSK07 is the latest generation produced with SMT technology. This technology allows minimizing energy and watering consumption and requires very little maintenance. 

sk

  • Integrated safety system to monitor every phase of the sterilization cycle and to inform the user about any possible failure.
  1. BIOSONIC UC125H
  • The new BioSonic Ultrasonic Cleaning Unit 125 is an advanced technology for the cleaning of equipments in an efficient way.
  • The cleaning unit is equipped with a solution tracking function to monitor the changing of cleaning solution when it’s completely exhausted.
  • There is an additional feature of degassing of the solution, i.e. air entrapments which hinder the cleaning process, will disappear.

bs

  • This technology provides the flexibility to efficiently clean and disinfect instruments, prostheses, and other items throughout the dental practice without compromising on OUR hygiene standard.

1.     AUTOCLAVE STERILIZATION POUCH BAGS

  • These pouch bags are applicable to every medical instrument such as surgical scissors, tweezers and disposable sterilized packaging of medical catheters, syringes, sterile dressing etc.

as

  • Instruments are packed and sealed air tight in the sterilization packages after the cleaning and autoclaving process is complete and stored in UV chamber till the next use.

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.

We at Dr. Sachdeva Dental Institute And Implant Center try to leave no question unanswered.

We practice endodontics with dental microscope which provides enhanced visualization and access to the most difficult angles of the teeth, mouth and jaws, and allows for a better and more accurate diagnosis and treatment.

It significantly improves quality of treatment and improved after treatment results.

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.

“Start-Up” Program in Implant Dentistry Mentoring

Mentoring by Surgical Master Dr.Rajat Sachdeva

If you are looking for a Mentor to help you with your dental implant career then we may be able to help.

Dr Rajat Sachdeva has mentored and trained many Dentists over the years through formal courses and individually on a one-to-one basis.

If you have no experience of dental implants then it may be helpful to take a look at the section http://www.sachdevadentalcare.com/implanto-dontia.html

where details of our courses can be found. These courses are a great way to get started with dental implants.

Alternatively if you already have experience with dental implants but want to increase your confidence in certain areas then individual mentoring with Dr.Sachdeva may be more appropriate. For example, if you have already completed a few cases but want help with overall treatment planning then one-to-one Interaction with Dr Rajat could be very beneficial. Or, if you place implants confidently but want help with bone grafting techniques, Dr Rajat will be pleased to assist you.

Basically we can tailor individual mentoring to whatever level or area you require.

Soft Tissue Grafting

This is in preposition of a treatment planning of an appropriate surgical technique for increasing the width of the attached mucosa in order to maintain Peri-implant health.

The soft tissue around gingival being divided into gingival and mobile alveolar mucosa, the gingival width varies individually as 2-9 mm.There is a time-point to distinguish the peri-implant mucosa from the gingival around the teeth:  The peri-implant connective tissue has less number of fibroblasts & more collagen fibers’ as compared to gingiva.  The junctional epithelium is more permeable with scarce number of blood vessels than that of around the tooth. 

The peri-implant connective tissue fibers’ run in a parallel direction to the implant or abutment surface without being attached rather being perpendicular to the root cementum.

It has been concluded that presence of non-elastic collagen fibers’ in the connective tissue is responsible for keratinization. Based on findings, >2 mm of keratinized tissue is required for maintenance of healthy gingival tissues.However,around the dental implants, the crucial role of an adequate width of keratinized /attached mucosa for the clinical success is still controversial.

Recent studies have shown that lack of adequate width of Keratinized alveolar mucosa around dental implants is associated with more plaque accumulation, inflammation, soft tissue recession, attachment loss.

Since implant surgery includes one or two stage bone augmentation procedures, displacement of the mucogingival Junction does occur.hence, in order to regulate the width of keratinized attached mucosa, two different peri-implant soft tissue augmentation procedures can be concluded:

Increase in soft tissue volume using a sub epithelial connective tissue graft or soft tissue replacement graft

Enlargement of keratinized mucosa width by means of an apically repositioned flap/vestibuloplasty.

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!

No Need To Be Worried About Dental Implants Success Rate

Dental implantation is performed to replace missing teeth and this treatment can be done any time after adolescence or when bone growth is complete. In few medical conditions such as active diabetes, periodontal disease and cancer, one may require additional treatment before Dental Implants. To have more confidence in such sort of treatment one should understand following few factors relevant to it;

Pre Dental Implants Examination: To have good judgment over the need of implants for you, your dental surgeon will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums. This will involve use of X-rays and computer tomography scans. Well, all this is to make sure that there is sufficient bone structure for placing the implant and to decide exactly where the implant should be placed.

Implant Surgery Follow-up and Aftercare: For almost seven days after surgery, your diet should be restricted to only those foods which are soft to chew. Nowadays, people are too busy and don’t have much time to visit again and again, thus many Dental Implant Courses are about taking lesser time to be stable and using self-dissolving stitches

Dental Implants

Success Rate Of Dental Implants: These implants are more durable than their restorative counterparts such as crowns and bridges that are cemented into place or removable dentures. The success rate for upper jaw implants is slightly lower because the upper jaw is less dense than the lower jaw. Studies have shown a five-year success rate of 95 percent for lower jaw and 90 percent for upper jaw implants.

This is the most successful procedures in dentistry. There is no one who is providing guarantee that a dental implant procedure will always be successful. Many patients prefer to have Low Cost Dental Implants and also seek the truth about success rate of this treatment.

The cost of dental implants depends on many factors i.e. type of implantation, dental implant material used, fee of your dentist performing the procedure and certainly, your location where the implant placement surgery is performed. Hopefully, now you will be able to get Best Dental Implant Delhi and a beautiful smile too.
