How do flouride help prevent dental caries?


How do fluorides help preventing dental caries ?

What are fluorides ?

Fluoride is a naturally existing material found in earth’s crust. Traces of fluorides are also found in water and certain foods. Fluoride is intentionally added in drinking water and tooth pastes to provide protection against dental decays

How does it work?

·         Hardens the enamel layer of baby and adult teeth before and after eruption
·         Saliva contains acid which combined with sugar, demineralises and dissolves the calcium and phosphorus in tooth. Dental fluorides helps in remineralisation of calcium and phosphorous and thus helps in strengthening the teeth


How is dental fluoride application done ?

Dental fluoride is topically applied onto the surface of teeth in gel, foam or varnish forms. Fluoride content here is much higher to that found in water and tooth pastes. Fluoride application effectively decreases the incidence of dental cavities in children to up to 95%. The treatment is completely painless and very easy. Some dental fluorides are also incorporated with artificial added flavours for children.  Fluoride application is recommended for children aged 6 months to 16 years.
Too much of fluoride can cause fluorosis. Flurosis simply means staining of teeth, so its always recommended to talk to your pediatric dentist regarding fluoride intake and application for your children.

WHY IS IT CRUCIAL TO VISIT A DENTIST IN CASE OF TRAUMA TO YOUR CHILD’S TOOTH?


Most of us have a notion that the milky teeth do not play a role in the permanent dentition. In contrast, the primary/ milky teeth decide the fate of the permanent teeth. Therefore, in case of trauma to the milky teeth, concrete steps are to be taken to treat it. Trauma could be due to accidental or any other reasons.

If an uncomplicated  crown fracture occurs, a filling would suffice. But, if it involves the nerve of the tooth, pulpotomy/pulpectomy, wherein the root canal of the tooth is treated, has to be performed. If not taken care of, the infection might spread to the permanent successor. In case of intrusion of the primary(milky) tooth due to an injury/trauma, it has to be extruded in order to prevent damage to the developing permanent tooth bud. If the root is fractured, extraction is indicated in order to avoid the spread of infection to the permanent successor. Followed by the extraction, and depending upon the age of the patient, space has to be maintained with the space maintaining appliances. When a tooth is avulsed, which is complete displacement from the socket, it has to kept in storage media like milk, coconut water or egg white and immediately visit the dentist, who would carry out replantation of the avulsed tooth, if possible.

HOW ARE FIXED DENTAL IMPLANT BRIDGE PROSTHESIS SUPERIOR TO REMOVABLE PROSTHESIS?


What is a fixed dental implant bridge prosthesis?

Fixed dental implant bridge prosthesis is employed in full mouth or partial mouth rehabilitation, wherein the prosthesis is permanently cemented to restore/replace missing teeth.
What is a removable dental prosthesis?
Removable dental prosthesis is used to replace missing teeth and can be removed by the patient as and when required.
What are the drawbacks of Removable dentures?
Removable dentures are unstable, at times. Also, primarily, food consumption becomes a major concern. With time, these dentures lose their fit and have to be replaced.  Bone loss is accelerated due to the forces exerted by the denture, resulting in loose dentures. Also, due to bone shrinkage, the distance between the nose and chin reduces leading to deterioration of the facial features.
Moreover, aesthetically this prosthesis is not so pleasing. The acrylic used to resemble natural gums hardly does justice and the aesthetics is compromised, resulting in lowered self confidence.
Why dental Implants?
Dental implants are fixed to the living jawbone, providing support and hence there is no bone loss. It hardly takes approximately 4 implants for rehabilitation of the upper/lower jaw. This is because of the firm anchorage these implants offer. The concern about loose or ill-fitting denture is eliminated. Also, implants resemble natural teeth, unlike the removable dentures. Therefore, aesthetics is not compromised, resulting in an increased self confidence.
Moreover, there is no discomfort while consumption of food. Thus, their aesthetics as well as function resemble natural teeth.
Generally they last longer than the removable dentures; frequent replacement is not necessary.
What are the drawbacks of fixed prosthesis?
The only drawback is that they are little expensive as compared to removable dental prosthesis.
