• Dental Care Tips to Boost Oral Health

    Poor oral hygiene can create dental issues such as tooth decay, cavities, abscess and infections and so on. Avoid this by adopting a preventative approach towards dental care. You can make small changes in your daily routine to experience improved dental hygiene and prevent future maladies.

    Use the following tips given by our experts at Dentzz to boost your oral health:

    Brush the right way

    Brushing twice a day won’t yield optimum results if not done correctly. Practising the right brushing technique is the first step to ensure the best dental hygiene. Place your brush at an angle of 45 degrees against your gum line. Brush your teeth with an up and down motion in short strokes. Next, move the brush back and forth on the outer, inner and the chewing areas of your teeth.  Avoid brushing too hard as it can scrape off the enamel on your teeth. Also, make sure that you spend at least two minutes brushing your teeth daily.

    Floss the right way

    Flossing helps clean the crevices between your teeth that are otherwise difficult to reach with a toothbrush. If you haven’t been flossing, start now by using this simple technique. Take about 18 inches of floss and wind the ends around your middle and index fingers. Hold the floss tightly between your thumb and forefinger and gently slide it between your teeth.  When you reach the gums, curve your floss in a C shape across your tooth and slide it in the space between your tooth and gums.

    Clean your tongue

    oral care

    If not cleaned regularly, the tongue can foster odour causing bacteria that can lead to bad breath. Use this simple method to clean your tongue and freshen your breath. Brush the top surface of your tongue gently with a small amount of toothpaste. Reach to the back of your tongue and move your brush forward progressively. Finish with a rinse of water. Further, it is recommended to clean your tongue whenever you brush, which is ideally twice a day.

    Restrict your consumption of sugary foods

    While it may not be possible to avoid them completely, you can try to limit the amount of sugar you consume every day. The bacteria in our mouth break down sugar which produces acids that can damage the tooth enamel and cause tooth decay. Also, avoid carbonated drinks as they can raise the acidity levels in your mouth.  A healthy practise is to switch to dairy products that are low on fat and replace sugary foods with fresh fruits such as oranges, pineapples or melons.

    Go for regular check-ups

    Last but not the least, it is recommended to visit a dentist at least twice a year. The dentist will examine your mouth for any existing conditions by enquiring about symptoms and performing an X-ray if required. With regular check- ups, it is also possible to detect early signs and prevent any impending dental ailments from occurring. Several patients visiting Dentzz have been highly impressed with the preventative approach adopted by our dentists, thus controlling their condition at an early stage.

    Food for Dental Health

    Healthy Food

    Oral health care shouldn’t be confined to brushing twice a day and avoiding sugary food. Our experts at Dentzz say that in order to keep several oral problems such as plaque, gingivitis and periodontal disease at bay it is necessary to adopt healthier habits. Calcium and vitamin D play a vital role in supporting the structure and making your teeth and bones stronger. Both calcium and vitamin D can be easily found in several foods and including them in your diet can do wonders for your teeth.

    Read on to find out what they are.

    Milk

    We have heard infinite stories about milk and its benefits all throughout our childhood. There’s a reason doctors and dentists recommend daily intake of milk. The high calcium and vitamin D content present in milk is essential for stronger bones and teeth.

    Milk Products

    Eggs

    Although eggs contain only a minor portion of vitamin D required by your body, they are one of the fastest ways to get it. Only eating egg whites and ignoring the yolk won’t help because all the vitamins are present in the yolk.

    Oranges

    Citrus fruits like Oranges are packed with vitamin C which helps in keeping the gums healthy and the connective tissues strong.

    Oranges

    Cheese

    Apart from supplying small amounts of vitamin D to your body, cheese also releases calcium in your mouth which protects your tooth enamel. However, ensure that you consume it in moderation.

    Cranberries

    Cranberries are rich in anthocyanins that interrupt the formation of oral bacteria before they turn into damaging plaque.

    Spinach

    Vegans and lactose intolerant people can get their dose of calcium from Popeye’s favourite leafy vegetable. One serving of spinach can supply 25% of the total calcium required by your body in a day. Apart from calcium it is rich in iron, fiber and vitamin A.

  • Dental Implant Procedure at Dentzz

    Missing a tooth or several teeth together due to an accident or trauma used to be a painful an embarrassing situation in the past.

Apart from bridges, partials and complete dentures, one can opt for dental implants, which are comfortable and look exactly like natural teeth.

    If you want to undergo a dental implant procedure, let me give you glimpse as to how it will be carried out at Dentzz.

    Oral Treatment

    • On your first visit the assigned dentist will first examine your mouth carefully. He/she will then take x-rays of your teeth, jaw and head to determine whether you’re fit for it.
    • After designing a plan to carry out the procedure, the dentist will then take you through the whole process before starting.
    • At the first stage, the dentist will start by inserting a dental implant into the jawbone underneath the gum tissue. After joining the gum tissue together the implant will get fixed with the bone as well as attached to the gum. This will take several months to heal, until it’s time to move on to the second stage.

    Dental Surgery

    During the second stage, the dentist attaches an abutment to the implant, the abutment connects the replacement tooth to the implant. Sometimes, the first and second stage will be carried out in a single sitting.

    • The artificial tooth made by your dentist is then attached to the abutment. Sometimes you may have to visit more than once to get the replacement tooth properly fit.
    • When you visit us for replacement of several or all your teeth, our expert will anchor a fixed bridge on the dental implants. This bridge spans over an area that has no teeth.

    Post-surgery

    At Dentzz, our job does not end with the procedure. The dentist will show you how to take care of your implants along with proper cleaning methods. Post-surgery check-ups will be scheduled for at least a year to ensure your implants are in good condition.

  • Get the Best Smile Makeover from Experts

    Good dental hygiene does not always guarantee a beautiful smile. However, the necessity of a beautiful smile cannot be ignored in today’s day and age. People are increasingly conscious about how they look and this directly affects their self-confidence.

    Those who have discoloured or malaligned teeth are usually hesitant to smile in public and often cover their mouths when they do so. Thankfully, modern dentistry has a solution for these and other extreme problems in the form of a smile makeover. Although almost every clinic claims to offer the best smile makeover, its best to visit a trusted dental clinic when it comes to your precious teeth.

    At Dentzz, our team of the finest aesthetic dentists understand that no two smile makeovers are the same just like no two smiles are alike. Therefore our experts not only focus on giving you the best smile possible but also design a plan that will be easy on your pocket.

    A good smile is created based on a number of key parameters. Some of these parameters are:

    • facial analysis (general facial balance)
    • dento-facial analysis (maxillo-mandibular relationships to the face, and the dental midline relationship to the face)
    • dento-labial analysis (the relationship of the teeth to the lips)
    • dento-gingival analysis (the relationship of the teeth to the gingiva
    • dental analysis (the inter-tooth and intra-tooth relationships including the form and position along with colour)

    Our experts in aesthetic Dentistry at Dentzz first evaluate your smile based on these parameters before narrowing down on a course of treatment. High end digital Smile Designing software is used to determine the best outcome possible and to assess the best smile for your face shape. Key procedures are chosen to target specific problem areas which include:

    • Single or multiple stained and discoloured teeth
    • Disproportionately cracked or chipped teeth
    • Wide gaps between teeth
    • Eroded, crooked, or uneven sized teeth
    • Unequal gum line
    • Gummy smiles
    • Slightly crooked teeth

    Dental_hygiene

    A smile makeover places emphasis on the appearance of your smile more than your mouth. However, many people have an existing dental condition that needs to be addressed in order to perform a smile makeover. Some common issues we generally encounter are:

    • Periodontal disease

    Disease of the gum causes inflammation, bleeding and bad breath. It can also cause loss of tooth and jawbone degeneration if left untreated for a long time, at this stage the dentist will perform scaling and planning to correct it.

    • Bruxism

    Bruxism is caused by grinding of teeth, often a result of stress. Over a period of time this condition can damage your teeth and the damaged teeth need to be treated before performing a smile makeover.

    • Prolonged decay

    Filling is used not just to strengthen the damaged tooth but also to prevent the cavity from spreading. A good dentist will always check your teeth for cavities before performing a smile makeover.

    • Malalignment

    Only slight malalignments can be corrected with a smile makeover treatment. If the patient has severe malalignment, they will have to undergo orthodontic treatment.

    At Dentzz, our dentists are skilled at correcting all these issues. When you visit Dentzz for a consultation, our dentists will check your mouth thoroughly and give you precise details about the treatments you require. Only after providing you with all the relevant information do we proceed to initiate treatment. Our unique approach to dentistry ensures that anyone who visits our clinic leaves with a happy, satisfied and sparkling smile on their face.

  • Know your health by your teeth

    Research has shown that taking care of your teeth can save your life. Not quite metaphorically, it literally acts as a caution against major diseases thus taking the first step towards saving your life.  The bacteria in the teeth and unhealthy gums can cause platelets in the blood to form clots which in extreme cases could result in a heart attack or stroke. Generally the most commonly ignored symptoms to some of the diseases, build slowly and steadily in the mouth.

    So here’s are some signs that our dentists at Dentzz dental ask patients to watch out for, read on to find out what they are and how you can save yourself before it’s too late:

    1. Pale teeth and bleeding gums:

    While this comes across as a very easily ignored common phenomena among most adults, it can be an indication towards greater health problems. This can be an indicator of blood disorders. Starting to floss daily and brushing twice a day is the simplest way to deal with bleeding gums and pale teeth and transform them into strong gums and healthy teeth.

    1. Frozen jaw:

    In lay man terms a frozen jaw is when your jaw gets stuck while you are eating or talking or doing anything else. Sometimes this could cause bone loss in the lower jaw. This bone loss could be an early indicator of skeletal osteoporosis. Basic exercises of the jaw help with a frozen jaw. A frozen jaw might also occur because of a small jaw in which case you could opt for an extraction and restructuring treatments for your teeth to give space to new teeth.

    Healthy Teeth

    1. Inflammation in the mouth:

    This is less of an indicator and more of a direct cause for various digestive and intestinal diseases. Inflammation in the mouth secretes certain enzymes that corrode or spoil the food we eat and thus cause stomach disorders. It is also coupled with fever sometimes. Consult with a dentist when this occurs and they might prescribe over the counter creams or tablets which would temporarily sooth the inflammation and improve dental health.

    1. Other diseases:

    There are certain diseases that cause severe oral health issues. Diabetes and Cancer deteriorate oral conditions and cause severe gum problems and a degradation of the overall health of the teeth and mouth. AIDS also is another such disease. Not only does it cause bad dental health and severe dental problems but AIDs itself can also be caused by oral infections.

    Smile Care

    Most diseases that are caused or are the cause of various other diseases, start in the mouth.  So it is very important to consult an experienced and skilled dentist as soon as you notice any dental health issue as it might just be your body communicating other larger health concerns to you. Your mouth could be your personal health indicator as long as you are alert and learn to heed the signs. If you notice any of these signs call and book an appointment with Dentzz today and put all your worries to rest.

  • Everything You Need to Know for Oral Cancer Awareness

    You may have heard of how cancer affects different parts of the body such as the lungs or breasts. Apart from this, you also need to know how cancer can also occur in the mouth, where the disease tends to affect the lips, tongue, cheeks, and throat. Cancer is termed as the uncontrollable growth of cells that invade and cause damage to surrounding tissue.

    Oral cancer is one such life-threatening condition that begins as growth or soreness in the mouth, which does not tend to go away. It includes cancers of the tongue, cheeks, lips, mouth, hard and soft palate, sinuses, and throat. It can be life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated early. Hence, you need to visit the best dentist in Mumbai to get your condition treated.

    • Symptoms of oral cancer

    There are multiple dental cancer symptoms that can help identify the onset of the disease at the earliest.

    1. Sometimes there are thickenings, lumps or bumps, or eroded areas on the lips, gums, and mouth
    2. The growth of velvety white, red, or speckled (white and red) patches in the mouth
    3. Excessive bleeding in the mouth
    4. Tenacious sores on the face, neck, or mouth that bleed easily and do not heal within two weeks
    5. A soreness or feeling that something is stuck in the throat
    6. Difficulty chewing or swallowing, speaking, or moving the jaw or tongue
    7. Unexplained numbness, pain/tenderness, loss of feeling, in any area of the face, mouth, or neck
    8. Hoarseness, change in voice, chronic sore throat
    9. Ear pain
    10. A change in the pattern that your teeth or dentures fit together
    • Who is at risk of oral cancer

    Those who tend to smoke excessively are primarily at a higher likelihood of developing oral cancer. Those who do not smoke yet consume tobacco tend to develop oral cancer. Such people tend to dip, snuff, or chew tobacco products that can lead to cancers of the cheek, gums, and lining of the lips. Sometimes, the excessive consumption of alcohol leads to the development of oral cancers. There are also a few HPV strains that are etiologic risk factors for Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma (OSCC). Cancer dentistry is a must for those who suffer from oral medical problems.

    Dental checkup

    • How is it diagnosed

    At Dentzz we suggest an oral brush biopsy if we spot any ulcers in your mouth that look suspicious. The test is painless and tends to involve various small samples and tissues that tend to analyse it for abnormal cells. Alternatively, if the tissue looks suspicious, a scalpel biopsy may be required. The procedure may require local anaesthesia and will be performed by us.

    Visit Dentzz dental today and get tested by our skilled dentists to detect signs of oral cancer and learn ways to keep it at bay.

  • 5 ways to improve children’s Dental health

    Like adults, it is important for parents to take care of their child’s dental care. You can keep your child from getting tooth decay by starting dental care early. Along with encouraging good habits like brushing twice a day, flossing and rinsing their mouth after eating, it is also important to take your kid to the dentist as often as possible. Regular dental checkups are important and kid dentistry is one of the most prominent sectors in the oral healthcare industry today.

    Here are 5 ways to improve your children’s dental health:

    1. The 2-2-2 rule works wonders in this case. Kids should be encouraged to do things in a playful way and you can emphasize on that by taking them to the dentist twice a year, making them brush twice a day and doing so for a good 2 minutes. The play way method certainly speaks with children and they are more likely to follow the routine once set properly.

    2. Never ever put your child to sleep with a bottle of milk, formula or any food in their mouth. Even if it’s a small child with no teeth, you need to understand that it might hamper teeth growth and even cause dental problems in the gums and surrounding area thus making a weak base for the teeth to grow on. Also clean their mouth before putting them to bed.

     shutterstock_245084911

    3. Regular dental visits are very important for any kid. Even if your kid is afraid to go to the dentist, make sure you talk to them and explain how these visits will help them build stronger teeth and not cause any pain. You need to assure them that kid dentistry is not painful and usually involves a lot of good things that will make their smile more amazing.

    4. The toothbrush and toothpaste that you use is very important. Your child’s first toothbrush should not be something that will leave their gums bleeding. Give them brush with soft bristles that bend and clean as per their sensitive mouth. Use fluoridated toothpaste and teach them to spit it out once they are done brushing.

    5. Cut back on sugary juices, cakes, chewy chocolates and hard candies that tend to stick to the mouth. Do not be too strict about it though. It is okay to have such treats once in a while but make sure your kids brush their teeth regularly. Also, increase the intake of whole fruits and crunchy vegetables like cucumber for children.
