What is direct bonding in cosmetic dentistry ?

Direct tooth bonding is a procedure that is used to mask imperfections on a tooth. It involves the application of a composite resin that matches the natural tooth colour. Bonding is an excellent method for covering small imperfections on the surface of a tooth and enhancing the beauty of your smile in a minimal, non-invasive way.

In direct bonding, smile correction is done with the help of composite resin material.

Bonding is done to correct the following issues regarding teeth:

  • Correcting gaps between teeth
  • Repairing and filling teeth affected by cavities
  • Repairing cracked and chipped teeth
  • Beautifying a misshapen tooth
  • Covering a discolored or stained tooth
  • Protecting the root of a tooth that has been exposed due to gum recession
  • Matching the height of a tooth with the other teeth in the mouth

Direct bonding is a time-saving and immediate correction but the drawback of this is it tends to stain more and more chances of chipping. Plaque adherence could be there if not done correctly.

Composite Direct bonding requires skills to perform.

 Dental emergencies are fairly common in children and adults. They can include; bleeding from the mouth due to an injury or getting hit in the face, cracked and broken teeth, oral infections, and extreme pain. Whenever you encounter a dental emergency, it’s extremely important to see a dentist or a medical professional right away in order to prevent further injury and restore the mouth to health.

 Types of Dental Emergencies:

  1. Mouth Injuries-If your gums, teeth, or jaw are bleeding, then one of the best ways to prevent further damage is to go to your dentist as soon as possible. Rinsing out your mouth with clean water, adding an ice pack, and taking painkillers will help soothe the pain for the time being, but if left untreated, the pain will worsen and cause further problems.
  2. Abscesses/Infections – Abscesses and infections typically occur as the result of poor oral hygiene and gum disease. You may also experience an increased risk if you have a chronic health condition, like diabetes. Oral infections can spread throughout the body if not treated promptly.
  3. Cracked or Broken Tooth (Teeth) – Broken tooth (teeth) can occur from biting hard food or candy or getting hit in the mouth. If you have a cracked tooth, it’s important to find the pieces and visit a dentist so that the tooth can be repaired.
  4. Extremely Loose Tooth – Lose teeth can occur as the result of tooth decay, gum disease or a mouth injury. In some instances, a dentist may be able to repair and stabilize the tooth so that it does not have to be extracted.
  5. Knocked-Out Teeth – Experiencing one or more knocked-out teeth is a dental emergency. This often occurs due to getting hit in the face or having your jaw impacts a hard object. If you save the knocked-out teeth and get to a dentist quickly, the teeth may be able to be re-implanted.
  6. Severe Toothache – Severe toothaches can occur due to cavities, losing a filling or gum disease, and inflammation. You will need to get to a dentist as soon as possible to determine the cause of the pain.
  7. Tongue/Mouth Bites – If you consistently bite your tongue or mouth, you may have bite problems that can be helped by getting prompt dental care to realign your teeth. If you notice the wounds are not healing or they are exceptionally painful, you may need emergency dental care.

First Aid for Dental Emergencies:

First aid for dental emergencies often involves reducing pain and swelling and finding any chips or knocked-out teeth so they can be inserted back into the mouth.

  •  Cold Compresses and Pain Medications: For mouth injuries, swelling and toothaches, it may help to ice pack to the side of the face. Additionally, you can take pain medication to help reduce pain while you travel to the emergency dentist’s office.
  • Find Knocked out Tooth/Chips If Possible: Attempt to find the pieces or the knocked-out tooth and preserve them for re-implantation or attachment. In the case of teeth that have been completely knocked out, it is crucial NOT to touch the root.
  • Rinsing the Mouth: Mouth injuries, oral infections, abscesses, and toothaches may benefit from being rinsed with warm salt water, which can help alleviate pain and help draw out any infection. However, you will still need to schedule an emergency appointment with your dentist.

Use of Toothbrush Exceeds More Than Three Months

Most people use their toothbrushes longer than three to four months, even though it is advised to replace them every two months. To keep your teeth clean and avoid gum infections, switch brushes frequently. Moreover, the typical person brushes their teeth for around 48 seconds each day, although dentists advise spending at least 2-3 minutes.  

 Toothbrushes Prefer Open Air and a Short Life

Dry your toothbrush after use and store it in a clean, somewhat open container so it fully dries. If not, more bacteria could 

Don’t Share Your Toothbrush!

Sharing a toothbrush with your significant other can transfer bacteria that cause illness in yourself, even if the other person doesn’t show signs of sickness. Over 700 bacterial species co-inhabit in the healthy human mouth. These species exist at diverse locations in the mouth.  

Sharing is not caring in all situations!
