Cleaning Process by a Certified Dential Hygienist
  • Aims to remove plaque, tartar, and stains
    • Even with your daily routine of brushing and flossing tartar can develop
  • Most dentists recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned every 6-12 months to reduce the likelihood of periodontal disease progressing
  • Plaque
    • The sticky, soft film contains millions of bacteria
      • If not cleaned, the bacteria causes gum disease and tooth decay
  • Tartar, or referred to as dental calculus
    • is a hard calcified deposit that forms on the teeth and can contribute to their decay
      • Dentists use specialized instruments to gently remove these deposits without causing harm to the teeth

Tools used during cleaning
  • Dental Mirror
    • help the dentist inspect hard-to-see areas in the mouth
    • help the dentist observe the teeth and gums for signs of irritation, swelling, decay, tartar, or bleeding
  • Ultrasonic Instrument
    • uses mild vibrations to loosen larger pieces of tartar
    • It also sprays subsequent mists of cool water to wash away loose debris
    • The tips of the ultrasonic instrument are rounded and curved and kept in constant motion
    • The settings on the device can be adjusted for the patient’s comfort
  • Curettes or Scalers
    • designed to eliminate smaller deposits on the teeth and smooth the tooth surfaces
    • Each tooth must be scaled individually to ensure that all tartar is removed.
  • Once the surfaces of the teeth are smooth, the dentist will polish the teeth. Using a slow-speed handpiece containing a soft rubber cup, the polishing device spins at the tip to smooth teeth. Prophylaxis paste, a gritty toothpaste-like solution, is put into the rubber cup. The cup containing the solution spins on the teeth to create a shiny, smooth surface. In some instances, your dentist may also apply fluoride as the final step in cleaning.


Fluoride Treatment
  • Topical fluoride products are applied directly to the teeth.
    • They include toothpaste, mouth rinses and professionally applied fluoride treatments.
    • Topical fluoride treatments are in the mouth for only a short time. However, fluoride levels in the mouth remain higher for several hours afterward.
  • Professional fluoride treatments are given in a dental office.
    • They are applied as a gel, foam or varnish. The fluoride used for these treatments has a higher strength than over-the-counter or prescription mouthwashes or toothpaste

Periodontal (Gum) Disease

Signs and Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

  • Bleeding gums — Some people think that when their gums bleed, it simply means they're brushing too hard. While brushing too hard is bad for the gums, it should not cause bleeding. Any bleeding of the gums should be considered a warning sign of gum disease.

  • Bad breath — It's very easy for plaque to collect in the spaces between the teeth, creating the perfect living conditions for bacteria that produce odorous, sulfur-containing compounds, resulting in bad breath.

  • Redness or swelling of the gums — Inflammation of the gums is usually the first visible sign of periodontal disease.

  • Receding gums — If you notice that your teeth look longer than they used to, it may be that your gum tissue has receded (away from the enamel), exposing some of your tooth roots.

  • Sensitivity — If there is gum recession, the exposed roots may become sensitive to hot or cold.

  • Periodontal abscess — Bacteria can become enclosed in a periodontal pocket and the area will fill with pus, becoming swollen and painful.

  • Loose teeth — When periodontal disease results in bone loss, teeth can become loose or migrate. Tooth loss can result and may be accelerated if you are applying excessive biting forces from clenching or grinding your teeth.


Bridges


Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space.

3 types of bridges most common seen.

porcelain fused Bridges






Metal Bridge

Ceramic Bridge

Traditional bridges are the most common type of bridge and are made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.

Teeth cleaning

Dentist recommend cleaning every three to six months, depending on your gum condition, helps to remove the remaining 35% of plaque and bacteria on your teeth that eventually hardens into tartar. It is that tartar which can cause cavities and other problems in your mouth, including gum disease

1.Prevent cavities
The whitish film that builds up on your teeth is called plaque and is the leading cause of tooth decay. This acidic substance eats away at the tooth enamel and, if left unattended, can lead to cavities. Plaque can be removed by brushing, flossing and dental cleanings.
2. Stop tooth loss
Gum disease, which starts with built-up plaque, is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. As gum disease advances, plaque moves further down the tooth where it can destroy the supporting bone in your jaw, causing teeth to loosen and fall out. Luckily, the chance of this happening to you can be greatly reduced through regular dental cleanings combined with good oral hygiene habits.
3. Brighten your smile
Drinking coffee, tea and wine or using tobacco can stain your teeth. A dental cleaning can remove built-up stains and leave you with freshly polished teeth. The result? A whiter, brighter smile!
4. Freshen your breath
Good oral hygiene is the best way to prevent persistent bad breath. Even if you brush and floss regularly, getting a cleaning is a great way to keep your mouth healthy and odor-free.
5. Boost your overall health
Studies have shown a connection between oral and overall health. Regular dental cleanings may help lower your risk for some diseases, like heart disease and stroke.2 Many medical conditions, some of them life-threatening, can be detected in their early stages by your dentist during a routine oral exam.
6. Save money
Get the most value from your dental benefits. Most Delta Dental plans have low or no copayments/coinsurance for dental cleanings and oral exams. If you take advantage of your benefits now, you may be able to save money in the long run by helping to protect your oral health and potentially avoiding more costly and extensive procedures.

Dental braces

The dentist recommends braces on people who have problems like brooked or crowded teeth, overbites or underbites, incorrect jaw position and disorders of the jaw joints are corrected. If left untreated, these problems can result in tooth decay, gum disease, headaches and earaches, as well as speaking, biting or chewing problems.

Dental X-ray

How Often Should Teeth Be X-Rayed?

The frequency of getting X-rays of your teeth often depends on your medical and dental history and current condition. Some people may need X-rays as often as every six months; others with no recent dental or gum disease and who visit their dentist regularly may get X-rays only every couple of years.

X-rays help dentists visualize diseases of the teeth and surrounding tissue that cannot be seen with a simple oral exam. In addition, X-rays help the dentist find and treat dental problems early in their development, which can potentially save you money, unnecessary discomfort, and maybe even your life.

What Problems Can Dental X-Rays Detect?

In adults, dental X-rays can be used to:

  • Show areas of decay that may not be visible with an oral exam, especially small areas of decay between teeth

  • Identify decay occurring beneath an existing filling

  • Reveal boneless that accompanies gum disease

  • Reveal changes in the bone or in the root canal resulting from infection

  • Assist in the preparation of tooth implants, braces, dentures, or other dental procedures

  • Reveal an abscess (an infection at the root of a tooth or between the gum and a tooth)

  • Reveal other developmental abnormalities, such as cysts and some types of tumors.

Cavities
Caused by tooth decay
Can happen in both the enamel (The outer layer) and the dentin (the inner later)

Tooth decay is caused by foods high in carbohydrates, which produce plaque that clings to teeth
The acid in plaque dissolves enamel, making small holes
Children get the most cavities, but adults can get them too
Sugary foods are the largest cause
They are treated by getting a filling
The dentist first drills away the rotten part of your teeth, then fills the hole with silver, gold, porcelain, or resin.

Crowns

Crowns are prosthetics that cover a badly damaged tooth. Used when: There is a large cavity and not enough tooth for a filling A weak tooth is in danger of fracturing A tooth is fractured To connect implants And to cover poorly shaped or discolored teeth


external image crowns.jpg

Implants


Replace teeth down to the root

They are chosen because they look more natural then dentures or other fake teeth, and feel better too

Last a lifetime

First the tooth’s root is implanted, making a socket in the jawbone for the new tooth, which takes 6 to 12 weeks to heal

Next, an abutment (connector post) is inserted into the post to hold the new teeth.

A crown is then attached into the abutment, modeled after your other, natural teeth

These then need to be cared for like regular teeth after the procedure

Extraction



Done when the entire tooth is removed from the jaw

Usually due to tooth decay, periodontal disease, or heavy toothache

Also done to wisdom teeth

Can usually be done with local anesthesia, but sometimes needs people to be put under in the case of things like impacted wisdom teeth

Socket is the pocket where the tooth used to be, and is usually stitched closed. A dry socket can develop if this is not cared for properly. This can be painful if it doesn’t heal correctly
