Fluorosis is a condition that affects the teeth. It Is caused by overexposure to fluoride during the first eight years of life. This is the time when most permanent teeth are being formed. After the teeth come in, the teeth of those affected by fluorosis may appear mildly discolored.
Symptoms :
Severe - Dark brown stains and rough, pitted enamel.
Mild - White opaque areas on the surface.

-The stains were caused by high levels of fluoride in the local water supply.
-Inappropriate use of fluoride-containing dental products such as toothpaste and mouth rinses. Sometimes, children enjoy the taste of fluoridated toothpaste so much that they swallow it instead of spitting it out.
Treatments :
1.Tooth whitening
-At home, keep all fluoride-containing products such as toothpaste, mouth rinses, and supplements out of the reach of young children. Only place a pea-sized amount of toothpaste on your child’s toothbrush.
-Use fluoridated water at a level that could prevent cavities but without causing fluorosis

People with these stains also had an unusually high resistance to dental cavities.

Choosing a toothbrush

  • Your toothbrush should be the right size for your mouth and teeth - it should not be uncomfortable to clean your teeth.
  • Your toothbrush should have bristles that stand up straight.
  • You should replace your toothbrush every three months.
The two most important features are a small head plus end-rounded filaments.

Interdental brushes

Interdental brushes are becoming popular for people using larger spaces from between their teeth. These brushes enable you to clean the spaces between teeth where food and plaque can build up.

Electric toothbrushes

If you have had crowns, bridges and implants, the chances are you'll expect your restorations to last and may wish to consider investing from an electric toothbrush. People using poor dental hygiene may also benefit from using an electric toothbrush as there is evidence to show they clean teeth more effectively than manual brushing.

Horrifying to Happy visit.....

This type of dentistry is used for patients with dental anxiety, anxiety disorders, and other issues that make it difficult for them to be fully comfortable while receiving treatment from a dentist. Conscious sedation is a type of sedation in which the sedated individual can respond to verbal directions, but he or she feels little to no pain, and has an altered level of consciousness. After conscious sedation, the patient may feel drowsy and not remember much about the procedure. This level of sedation is used for dental procedures in which it is necessary for the patient to be responsive, and also for minor procedures which do not merit the use of general anesthesia, and for procedures involving patients who cannot cooperate with care providers. Conscious sedation dentistry is also offered to young children who may have trouble complying with requests from the dentist and the staff, and to adults who experience significant anxiety about dental appointments. Conscious sedation lets the patient recover quickly and return to their everyday activities soon after the procedure.

Prolonged Thumb Sucking In Infants May Lead To Speech Impediments

Using a pacifier for too long may be detrimental to your child's speech. Research published in the open access journal BMC Pediatrics suggests that the use of bottles, pacifiers and other sucking behaviors apart from breast-feeding may increase the risk of subsequent speech disorders in young children.

"These results suggest extended use of sucking outside of breast-feeding may have detrimental effects on speech development in young children,". This finding is particularly relevant, as use of bottles and pacifiers has increased dramatically over the last few decades.

How Does Tobacco Affect?

Tobacco contain the addictive drug nicotine. Nicotine is readily absorbed into the bloodstream when a tobacco product is chewed, inhaled, or smoked. Upon entering the bloodstream, nicotine immediately stimulates the adrenal glands to release the hormone epinephrine (adrenaline). Epinephrine stimulates the central nervous system and increases blood pressure, respiration, and heart rate. Glucose is released into the blood while nicotine suppresses insulin output from the pancreas, which means that smokers have chronically elevated blood sugar levels. Nicotine increases levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which affects the brain pathways that control reward and pleasure. Smoking causes cancer of the lung, oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, pancreas, kidney, bladder and cervix. Recent evidence links smoking with cancer of large intestine and some forms of leukemia. Smoking has a direct effect on the growth of the fetus. The more the mother smokes during pregnancy, the lower the weight of the newborn infant.

All smokers are at extra risk for:Coronary heart disease, Peripheral vascular disease, Aortic aneurysm, High cholesterol, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Chronic bronchitis, Emphysema, Pneumonia, Influenza, The common cold, Peptic ulcers, Chronic bowel disease, Tooth decay, Gum disease, Osteoporosis, Sleep problems, Cataracts, Thyroid disease

When an addicted user tries to quit, he or she experiences withdrawal symptoms including irritability, attention difficulties, sleep disturbances, increased appetite, and powerful cravings for tobacco.

Cross contamination through dental chair

One of the most important aspects of the dental office is treatment unit (dental chair) because good dental chair plays important role in prevention of cross contamination during treatment. There are several things that has to be taken into consideration.  Some of these considerations are, it should be free of bacteria and germs prior to each treatment. Water coming through treatment unit into the patient’s mouth should be clean. Suction unit should be such that it should prevent cross contamination. To prevent tissue damage, the equipments used in the treatment units should produce less heat. Last but not the least; it should be comfortable to patient and dentist.

So the patient should be aware of all these things and inquire before getting treated.

Chair should have a turbine unit that provides protection mechanism against back suction phenomenon which prevents the back suction. Also it maintains quality of water(RO) coming through the treatment unit.

Following are some of the diseases which can spread through cross contamination during dental treatment. Saliva is considered to be one of the most common mediums that diseases choose as their mode of spread.

Cold sores are caused by Herpes Simplex Virus-1 (HSV-1).

HIV and hepatitis B Virus (HBV) are blood-borne infections that have been found in the saliva. Hepatitis B virus through saliva has been well documented, as well as hepatitis A and C.

Epstein-Barr virus, or EBV, is a common herpes virus that causes many diseases. Once infected, the Epstein-Barr virus stays in the body for life.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) spreads via oral transmission from virus-containing saliva. The virus remains in the body usually in a dormant state.

Influenza is a highly contagious viral respiratory disease. It easily passes from an infected person through any contact with saliva.

Viral meningitis is highly contagious which causes inflammation of the linings that cover the spinal cord and the brain.

All dental chairs at TCC are equipped with latest technology and fulfill all above criteria.

What is the Right Age For Braces?

For a parent whose child does not have perfectly aligned teeth, which unfortunately is many of us.

The American Academy of Orthodontics recommends that children receive an orthodontics screening somewhere between the ages of two and seven. However, this age is too early to install braces. The screening is only so the orthodontist can assess how your child's teeth and jaw are developing, and identify potential problems. Based on the results, the orthodontist will be able to make an informed recommendation on whether your child will need braces in the future.

Most children who need braces will receive them between the ages of nine and thirteen. This is the ideal age, since the jaw is strong enough to support braces, but still developing, so the braces can do their work as the child grows. After fourteen, the pace of development slows and it becomes more difficult to make significant changes in alignment through braces.

Common Causes of Sensitive Teeth

Ouch! That hurts! Sensitive teeth are a terrible nuisance! You can't concentrate when you've got sensitive teeth because each breath brings with it a bunch of pain. Even touching your teeth with your tongue can be painful and I've found it's especially bad during a sudden climate change.
So what causes sensitive teeth? Basically, any sort of exposure of your dentin will cause discomfort or pain. Dentin is the soft layer of your teeth that sits under your enamel.
This can be caused by
>gum disease
>brushing too hard - use a softer brush
>Grinding your teeth - use mouth guard to protect your teeth
>Acidic mouthwashes will dissolve your enamel over time, as will regularly eating acidic foods.
>Dehydration (including from alcohol or caffeine drinks)
>Tooth whitening and many other dental procedures can leave your teeth feeling temporarily very sensitive. This will likely last 4-6 weeks maximum. Try using a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth during this period to ease the discomfort.
Go see your dentist for treatment. This will normally include a teeth cleaning as well as application of a fluoride gel which will strengthen your teeth.

Anti-Aging Treatments From the Dentist?

When most people think about anti-aging treatments, they think about Botox, plastic surgeons, and weekends at the health spa. Did you know, though, that your dentist can have a huge impact on how old you look? It's unexpected by true. The way that your teeth are aligned and the way that they look can have a huge impact on your overall youthful look. So, if you're looking for antiwrinkle treatments, don't forget to call the dentist.

Your very first thought might be that we're simply talking about whitening your smile and keeping your natural teeth beautiful. This, in itself, can have a pretty dramatic impact on your youthful look. Check out magazines and movies, and you'll see that the youngest, most beautiful models and stars are those with straight, white teeth. We definitely associate white teeth with youth, and over time, you can start to experience staining and discoloring of your teeth, which can easily be fixed with today's dental techniques.

Basically, your mouth and the teeth in it are the things that support the entire rest of your facial structure. Think about the face of a toothless baby or, even better, an elderly lady or gentleman who has taken her or his false teeth out. A baby's skin is so elastic that it's hard to notice much of a difference, but if you look closely, you can see that a baby's cheeks are hollowed out until he starts to get back teeth. When an elderly person removes dentures, her whole face can sag and sort of collapse.

Over time, your face starts to cave in as your teeth wear down. If you're missing teeth or just have normal wear and tear, a dentist can restructure your face by restructuring your teeth. Some dental work can help erase fine lines around the mouth, and by boosting the whole facial structure, even fine lines in the forehead and jaw can disappear! So, when you need antiwrinkle treatments,

zinc-containing denture creams

Millions of people use denture cream (also known as denture adhesive). Some, but not all, denture creams contain zinc. A few recent case reports in the scientific literature indicate a possible association between excessive use of zinc-containing denture creams and neurological and hematological problems.

The authors theorize that the patients probably swallowed excess denture cream, and that over years of use, zinc may have built up in these individual's bodies. It is well documented that swallowing excessive amounts of zinc can raise blood levels of zinc which can lead to lower blood levels of copper. The lower blood level of copper can then lead to neurological and hematological problems.

Dental examinations and appropriate care can reduce the need for denture adhesive products.

Preserving extraction socket for Implant placement:

After dental extraction, a well-characterized process of wound healing occurs that may result in loss of ridge dimensions, compromising ideal implant replacement. The greater the available bone, the larger the implant width and length that can be used, resulting in better cervical esthetics, prognosis, and ease of oral hygiene procedures. Socket preservation procedures at the time of tooth extraction improve the prognosis regarding maintenance of the width and height of remaining bone. Grafting at the time of extraction takes advantage of the regional acceleratory phenomenon that is induced by the trauma of extraction leading to a reduced healing time.

stress = dental problems

People who are live high-stress lifestyles can benefit from re-evaluating their situations in order to prevent many health complications, include dental care problems.

Too much stress is developing mouth sores. Bacteria and viruses that develop in the mouth can lead to fatigue, allergies and immune system complications.

Dealing with too much stress can also lead to teeth grinding, which can cause joint degeneration in the jaw and the breakdown of enamel. If the problem persists, it is recommended to see a dentist and have them mold a custom mouth guard.

Being overly busy can also cause people to put proper dental care at the bottom of their busy schedules. This could include postponing or canceling dental appointments, and if a person isn't taking preventative measures at home, they could develop more severe dental problems, such as gum disease.

Low B Vitamins May Up Risk for Canker Sores

People with canker sores have much lower intake of vitamin B12 and folate than average, a study concludes.

Researchers at the University of Connecticut collected diet information on 100 people who had a history of canker sores. They compared this group of people to a national survey of more than 9,000 people. These people had completed a diet history, but did not have canker sores.

The canker sore group had much lower intakes of vitamin B12 and folate than the nationwide group without canker sores. Other studies have found vitamin B12 or folate deficiencies in some people with canker sores. In at least one study, people were treated for these deficiencies. Their canker sores either got smaller or disappeared altogether.

Canker sores are painful, open sores in the mouth. They are not the same as cold sores. Cold sores are caused by a virus. Canker sores have no clear cause, but most experts agree that some sort of nutritional deficiency contributes to them.

Vitamin B12 also is called cobalamin. One result of low vitamin B12 is megaloblastic anemia. People with anemia have lower-than-normal numbers of red blood cells. People who don't get enough B12 also may have problems with sleep or concentration. They may feel tired, irritable or depressed.

Folate, or folic acid, also is called vitamin B9. It is important for many body functions. However, it is probably best known for its effects on fetal development. Pregnant women who do not get enough folate have a higher risk of having babies with neural tube defects, such as spina bifida.

Types of Crowns[caps]

1. Metals used in crowns include gold alloy, other alloys (for example, palladium) or a base-metal alloy (for example, nickel or chromium). Compared with other crown types, less tooth structure needs to be removed with metal crowns, and tooth wear to opposing teeth is kept to a minimum. Metal crowns withstand biting and chewing forces well and probably last the longest in terms of wear down. Also, metal crowns rarely chip or break. The metallic color is the main drawback. Metal crowns are a good choice for out-of-sight molars.
2. Porcelain-fused-to-metal dental crowns can be color matched to your adjacent teeth (unlike the metallic crowns). However, more wearing to the opposing teeth occurs with this crown type compared with metal or resin crowns. The crown's porcelain portion can also chip or break off. Next to all-ceramic crowns, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns look most like normal teeth. However, sometimes the metal underlying the crown's porcelain can show through as a dark line, especially at the gum line and even more so if your gums recede. These crowns can be a good choice for front or back teeth.
3. All-resin dental crowns are less expensive than other crown types. However, they wear down over time and are more prone to fractures than porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.
4. All-ceramic or all-porcelain dental crowns provide the best natural color match than any other crown type and may be more suitable for people with metal allergies. However, they are not as strong as porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns and they wear down opposing teeth a little more than metal or resin crowns. All-ceramic crowns are a good choice for front teeth.
5. Temporary versus permanent. Temporary crowns can be made in your dentist's office whereas permanent crowns are made in a dental laboratory. Temporary crowns are made of acrylic or stainless steel and can be used as a temporary restoration until a permanent crown is constructed by the dental laboratory.
