How is cosmetic dentistry different from traditional dentistry?

Traditional dentistry concerned about oral health and hygiene whereas cosmetic dentistry give importance to aesthetic part also.In traditional dentistry treatment they try to restore the structure, function and maintenance of the teeth.

In cosmetic dentistry along with structure and function they gave importance to size, shape, contour and colour of the teeth and gum thereby gives you a beautiful smile.
Cosmetic dentists work on your smile and appearance so it will bring you a lifelong happiness.

Treatments come under cosmetic dentistry:

1Inlays, onlays and crowns
2.Inlays are indirect restoration which is placed inside the tooth cavity
3.Onlays are indirect restoration which replaces the fractured cusp or wall of teeth
4.Crowns are the structures which entirely covers the tooth crown portion
5.Composite restoration

Composite restorations are tooth coloured material which adheres to the tooth structure with micro mechanical bonding it helps in build up the fractured tooth structure

Dental veneers
They are the tooth coloured laminates which covers the tooth from the facial surface.

Teeth whitening
Teeth whitening will improve the colour of your teeth whereas normal cleaning procedure will remove the deposits and stains which adhered to the tooth structure.

Implant is the best and most advanced option for replacement of a missing tooth without causing any harm to the adjacent teeth.

Gum surgery
There are some patients with enlarged gums which gives them a gummy smile so to improve the smile the doctors will remove the extra gingival which grown over the tooth called gingivectomy.

There are some patients with darker gingiva so for such patients we aill surgically rove the pigment producing cells called melanocytes.

What is fluoride and why is it important to dental health?

Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral compound. which is found naturally in the soil, water and foods. its synthetically added into drinking water, tooth paste, mouthwash etc. it helps in the prevention of dental caries.

How it works?
Outer surface of the teeth(enamel) is resistant to acid attack .when tooth is erupting, fluoride is taken up by the tooth. fluoride changes the structure of developing enamel and make it more resistant to acid attack which causes tooth decay.So that Fluoride is important to young children.

Once teeth erupt then it helps in remineralization of teeth. outer layer of teeth is containing calcium and phosphate. saliva also contain calcium and phosphate. When we eat sweet foods that time bacteria start feasting on carbohydrate in these foods and release acids . when acid start attack on tooth then tooth start leaching out of calcium and phosphate, it is called demineralization of teeth. Naturally demineralization and remineralisation process is continued in our mouth. Saliva starts remineralisation of tooth it starts adding calcium and phosphate back on teeth. If fluoride is available in saliva then your teeth are able to take it also. Fluoride combines with calcium and phosphate and make fluorapatite crystal which is more stronger than calcium and phosphate. It is more resistant to acid attack and prevents tooth decay and reverse the initial stage of caries.

You can get fluoride from

-drinking fluoridated water
-fluoridated tooth paste, mouth wash

If dentist diagnose that your child needs more fluoride then dentist may give your child extra amount of fluoride in the form of :
-topical application of fluoride gel or varnish to the tooth surfaces.
-fluoride tablets.

What are the uses and benefits of orthodontic treatment?

The Main concern of your orthodontic treatment is proper alignment of teeth thereby people can maintain a good oral hygiene.

Benefits of orthodontic treatment for children:

The ideal age for child to meet an orthodontist is 7 years because this is the age where there first permanent molars and incisors appear in the mouth.

As early you take your child to the dentist, the treatment outcome will be good because at this age we can correct both skeletal as well as dental abnormality as your child is in a growing stage.

Sometimes we can avoid the braces treatment by selective removal of deciduous / milk tooth thereby we can prevent the crowding / irregular placement of the teeth. This process is called serial extraction.

In some kids there won’t be sufficient space for the eruption of permanent teeth because of small jaw size so in such cases we can do jaw expansion procedures.

Benefits of orthodontic treatment for adult:

Even adults can go for the orthodontic treatment because along with a beautiful smile and appearance correction of teeth alignment avoids lots of dental complications.

If there is no proper alignment of teeth it will lead to:

1. Food lodgments lead to gum infection and gradual bone loss makes the teeth mobile.
2. Increased chance of carious formation
3. Difficulty in cleaning and maintenance of teeth
4. Poor chewing ability
5. Wearing of teeth and bone due to abnormal bite
6. Abnormal bite leads to tempromandibular joint disorders
7. Excessive stress on the muscles due to abnormal bite leads to headaches, facial and neck pain.

So for avoiding all these dental complication it’s important to go for a proper alignment of teeth.
