There are many questions in our mind when we think about teeth and its safety. Patients should never hesitate to ask questions regarding their oral health to their dentists. Here we answer a few…..
Does cleaning of teeth make them loose?
Teeth are held by bone and gums around them. The tartar around the teeth which causes infections leads to receding of bone and gum levels. So, if it is not removed periodically, it can cause loosening of teeth. Cleaning helps to remove tartar and stop gum and bone from receding.
Is root canal treatment a painful procedure?
Root canal treatment is done when the nerve of teeth is affected due to decay, trauma or fracture. It involves removing the damaged pulpal nerve, cleaning and shaping of root canal and then filling it with a biocompatible material. As this procedure is done under anesthesia, it is painless.
How often should one visit a dentist?
One should visit a dentist at least twice a year for checkups. If there is toothache, bleeding gums, sensitive teeth, or any dental problem one is advised to visit the dentist immediately.
What is the right age for braces treatment?
People of any age can benefit from this treatment. However treatment time will be longer for adults as the bone is dense in them.
What is smile designing?
A blend of symmetry, color, shape and lines create a balanced harmonious smile. When one does not feel happy with his /her smile, he can go in for a smile evaluation to an aesthetic dentist who will evaluate the smile for its missing, prominent or diminished features and then correct it through various means. This entire process is called Smile Designing.
Why do my gums bleed?
Gums may bleed due to tartar accumulation around necks of teeth, use of hard bristle tooth brush, and intake of certain medications. It calls for immediate attention by a dental professional to detect the cause and suggest suitable treatment options.
