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. Thanks to modern dentistry, this problem has numerous solutions now.

With a success rate of 99.2% we are one of the top choice for dental implants in India. We offer single tooth replacement, multiple tooth replacement and replacement of all teeth with warranties of up to 20 years.

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.

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.

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.

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.

5 common reasons for ‘Bad Breath’ Halitosis

Does bad breathe cause lack of self-confidence? It does! You try to withdraw yourself socially the moment you realize you have bad breath. This medical problem called halitosis can result from poor dental habits, which may be a major sign of other health problems. Sometimes, bad breath can also be made worse by the types of foods you eat and few other unhealthy lifestyle habits. So, it is critical to choose the right bad breath remedies. 

Reason for Bad Breath

According to scientists, the food eaten tends to break down in your mouth. As foods are digested, it is absorbed into the bloodstream. They are carried to your lungs and given off in your breath. If you eat foods with strong odours like garlic and onions, brushing and flossing — even mouthwash can cover up the odour temporarily. It will not go away until the foods have passed through your body. Make sure you brush and floss teeth daily, to ensure that the food particles do not remain in your mouth. You can prevent the promotion of bacterial growth between teeth, around the gums, and on the tongue. Sometimes, antibacterial mouth rinses also cuts down bacteria and eliminates the bad breath causes.

No smoke

Remember that persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth acts as a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. It occurs due to the build-up of plaque. Such infections, viruses, and bacteria cause the formation of toxins, which irritates the gums. If the disease extends or remains untreated, it can damage the gums and jawbone. The medical condition for dry mouth is termed as Xerostomia can result in bad breath. Remember that saliva is necessary to moisten the mouth, balance and neutralize the acids produced by plaque, as well as washing away dead cells that accumulate on the tongue, gums, and cheeks. Sometimes, when these infectious cells aren’t removed, they can decompose and can cause bad breath. Dry mouth may be a side effect of various medications, continuous breathing through the mouth, or salivary gland problems. Other bad breath causes include poorly fitting dental appliances, yeast infections of the mouth, and dental caries (cavities).

Few tips for preventing or treating Bad Breath

  • Bad breath can be reduced or prevented by practicing good oral hygiene.
  • Always see your dentist regularly at least twice a year. After conducting an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning, you will be able to identify and treat periodontal disease, parched mouth, or other obstacles that may be the cause of bad mouth odour.

Dental instruments

 

  • Remember to brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. No doubt it is advised to use herbal toothpaste as well, but fluoride works better on cavities. Brush teeth after you eat a snack or meal. Ensure that you replace your toothbrush every twice or thrice a month to prevent illness. Use floss or interdental cleaning devices to remove food particles and plaque that is stuck in between teeth once a day.
  • Dentures can be removed at night and cleaned thoroughly before being placed in your mouth the next morning.
  • Another habit that you need to stop for bad breath cure is to give up on smoking and chewing tobacco-based products. Seek help from your dentist for tips on kicking the habit.
  • Drink lots of water as it helps keep your mouth moist.
  • Chewing gums (preferably sugarless) or sucking on sugarless candy can stimulate the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria. Gums and mints containing xylitol always work as the best method.
