1. What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a standard for tooth replacement. An implant is a small “support” made of titanium and placed into the jawbone at the point of a missing tooth root. After the implant has attached to the adjacent bone, a replacement tooth is positioned on top of the implant.

2. Do the new teeth look natural?
The new teeth have a natural-like appearance and feel.

3. Am I a suitable candidate for the procedure?
Overall good health and enough jaw bone are the vital requirements. If you are fit for tooth extraction, then you can have an implant. Individuals who have lost teeth due to disease, decay or injury are suitable candidates for the procedure. After taking complete medical history and x-rays it can be decided.

4. How successful is it?
They have been used for over thirty years and have shown high success rates. To ensure that implants last for long, one should practice good oral hygiene.

5. Is the procedure painful?
Anesthesia is administered during the surgery. Your dental implant dentist may prescribe pain medication to ease any discomfort after the surgery. Most patients report minor discomfort when they get home. Many patients feel okay the next day and can return to work.

6. How long does it take?
The time needed relies on the complexity and number of implants. A straightforward and uncomplicated dental implant may take less than 1 hour.

7. Am I allowed to eat after the surgery?
It is advisable to avoid exposing a recent surgical site to food. One is advised to take soft foods and to stay hydrated. We will guide you accordingly.

8. How long does the healing and placing of the implant crown take?
The duration mainly depends on your treatment plan; but mostly takes about two to six months. There are two major stages. At first, the implant should heal before we place the replacement crown.

9. How long will the implants last?
After the fusion of the implant to the bone, it can last for several years if it is well maintained. Many implants have stayed in place for over forty years.

10. Are dental implants costly?
The cost is relative. They are a little more costly than bridgework, but they last for much longer. Thus, more cost effective.

11. Will my insurance cover for the costs?
It depends on the individual plan. Talk to your insurance provider.

12. Can my body reject the implant?
An allergy to titanium is rare, but may occur. At times, the implant does not fuse to the bone during the first time, but on the second trial, it fuses.

13. I want implants, how do I begin the process?
The process starts with consulting us. visit us at : MUMBAI DENTAL CLINIC- COSMETIC & IMPLANT CENTRE, MADHUBAN UDAIPUR. After proper clinical examinations and xrays we will suggest you the best treatment.

Effects Of Fluoride on Dental And Skeletal Growth In India – Prevention and Measures.

Fluoride and fluorosis in India

Have you traveled in rural India and seen children with stained teeth wondering how they could get tobacco-like stains at a young age? Have you seen adults in their mid-40s and 50s with bent shoulders complaining of extreme pain and being bed ridden for years? Or have you asked why the toothpaste adds fluoride whereas we hear of a disease called fluorosis in India caused by high fluoride?

The discovery of high consumption of fluoride being harmful for humans and animals was made in India in 1937  and since then, there has been a long history of observation of fluorosis in many parts of India and across the world. Though mainly occurring due to high consumption of  fluoride from water, it has also been reported to occur through consumption of food, inhalation of fumes and other toxic environments.

When we first hear about this problem of fluoride and fluorosis, it seems quite strange. How can clear looking water without any taste or odour cause something like this to happen? Also, even a small amount as 1 to 1.5 mg per litre of fluoride in water can be harmful. What makes it stranger is that why do only children get affected with dental stains of fluorosis (and not adults or even children beyond a certain age)? What really happens to our bones that they get twisted, deformed and people get crippled at relatively early age? View the details regarding flurosis on Fluoride and Fluorosis by Fluorosis Research and Rural Development Foundation.

Dental and skeletal fluorosis

Skeletal fluorosis of legs

Skeletal fluorosis of legs

There are two main types of fluorosis, namely dental and skeletal fluorosis. Dental fluorosis is caused by continuous exposures to high concentrations of fluoride during tooth development, leading to enamel with low mineral content and increased porosity. The critical period for risk to dental fluorosis is between 1 and 4 years of age. After the age of 8 when permanent teeth have established, there is lesser risk to dental fluorosis.

Skeletal fluorosis is developed by the disturbance of calcium metabolism in the formation of bones of the body. It results in softening and weakening of bones resulting in deformities leading to crippling. It can also aggravate calcium related disorders such as rickets in children and osteoporosis mainly in adults. For people who are exposed to high fluoride levels for decades, severe cases of crippling can occur.

Harmful levels of fluoride and their effect on the body

So, coming back to our earlier questions, let us understand that fluoride in very small amount like what we get from toothpastes cannot lead to the kind of skeletal fluorosis we see in India today. A daily intake of around 10-20 mg/day for adults and as low as 3-8 mg/day for children has been found to be harmful. Using these limits, the rough water safety limits of 1 mg/l of 1.5 mg/l have been arrived at in the context of India.

In 20 states of India, more than 100 districts across the country and probably more than 60 million people are consuming drinking water which has fluoride greater than 1 mg/l. Since local food can also get irrigated by the same water, food also contains fluoride in these places. This makes the total daily consumption of fluoride more than 10 mg/day which is always harmful for adults and more so for children.

What makes excess fluoride bad for us is also that it affects many processes in the body. Firstly, the body requirement for calcium increases. This makes specific people such as women in pregnancy and lactation, growing children and adults beyond the age of 40, more prone to calcium related problems. Apart from this, iron absorption is reduced due the fluoride. This is really important to all of us and especially for pregnant women for whom iron deficiency anemia and related problems are a serious cause of under-weight and unhealthy children at birth.

Does this all make the situation worse and too complex difficult to act on? The answer should be ‘yes’ and ‘no’. On one hand, ‘yes’ because when we think of it, water scarcity itself is a big problem for people. Just getting thirsty throats quenched itself is a big task. Looking at this as a health problem, fluorosis does not yet present itself as a problem of national importance. Also in front of calorie and protein deficiency, calcium and iron come lower down, but still are important.

What can be done to deal with the problem

However, when we put all these together and the possibility of irreversible deformities for large number of people, the only answer can be that we have to act on this and ‘Now’. What can really be done about this?

  • The very first beginning is from simple detection. This can be done by simple testing of water for fluoride in an indicative manner with field kits and observation of children’s teeth for stains. For example, most of us do not know that it is very simple to test for fluoride in few seconds with a field kit that would cost just a few rupees to test each time. Imagine saving yourself from fluorosis with just a small investment as that. Definitely there are more complex instruments such as an Ion electrode which can measure fluoride more accurately. It is also possible to test for fluoride in urine and blood, but very few labs in the country exist today for that. View the details of the Water quality testing kits for field use to know more.
  • Finding safer local sources of water with lesser or no fluoride. In many fluoride affected places, there is a nearby source of water which is free from fluoride. It is just that we don’t know about it, or that it is not accessible to all, or that it may be affected by other forms of contamination such as poor sanitation practices. So the first level solution could just be to identify such a source, have the community come together to make available for all, use it judiciously and improve the quality in a simple way.
  • Basic diet improvement to include calcium rich green leaves, milk, eggs, and rich sources of Vitamin C and antioxidants such as Amla, Lemon. View some of the Solutions for safe water and nutrition  to know more about efforts that can be undertaken to prevent fluorosis in the community.
  • As they say, a good beginning is a job well done. Much more can be done on fluoride and fluorosis such as removal of fluoride (activated alumina and reverse osmosis), saving rainwater directly from rooftops or through dams and wells, advanced detection of water and health, and so on. This film on Rainwater harvesting to tackle fluoride provides an example of how rainwater harvesting can be useful to deal with the problem of fluoride contamination of water. Visit us with your family if your area is effected with high content of fluoride
  • Our team of dentist will properly examine and tell you about the treatments of the dental fluoride.

Impact Of Tobacco Use On Oral Health- An Awareness drive in Udaipur

When most people consider the health effects of using tobacco products, they think of diseases and conditions like lung cancer, heart disease and stroke. However, smoking and the use of smokeless tobacco products have many other serious consequences, including oral cancers and gum disease. If you’re a smoker or you use smokeless tobacco products, here’s what you should know about the oral health risks you’re facing.

Tobacco and Oral Cancer

Studies have shown that the use of any type of tobacco product significantly increases the risk of oral cancers that can affect any of the soft tissue of the mouth, including the lips and palate, and it also increases the risk of cancers in the esophagus, larynx (“voice box”), lungs, kidneys, bladder, and other organs. The link isn’t surprising — after all, smoking and smokeless tobacco place the tissues of the mouth and throat in direct contact with the carcinogens contained in tobacco products and their smoke and juice, bathing the tissues with cancer-causing chemicals.

According to the Mouth Cancer Foundation, about 90 percent of oral cancers occur in people who use tobacco products including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and smokeless tobacco products. Smokers are about six times as likely as non-smokers to develop oral cancers, and those who use smokeless tobacco are 50 times more likely to develop these cancers compared to those who do not use any tobacco products.

Tobacco and Gum Disease

In addition to oral cancer, smoking is a leading cause of gum disease and related tooth loss. Gum disease occurs when bacteria builds up along the gum line, hiding in hardened plaque deposits called tartar. As these bacteria multiply, they release toxic substances that cause gum tissue to shrink away from the tooth surfaces, creating tiny openings that enable the bacteria to move downward toward the root pockets. Over time, bacterial infection sets in around the root, loosening teeth and eventually causing them to fall out.

Research has shown that people who smoke tend to have significantly more tartar than nonsmokers, perhaps because the production of saliva in smokers is inhibited. In a healthy mouth, saliva works to wash away food particles and other materials that form the basis of plaque and tartar. When the mouth doesn’t produce as much saliva, food debris can build up around teeth, allowing plaque and tartar to form while also providing ample food for disease-causing bacteria.

Smoking also compromises circulation, which is essential for battling gum disease infections. Decreased blood flow to the gums means the mouth is less able to fight off infections, which could explain why gum disease tends to progress more quickly among those who smoke. In addition, smokers also have greater bone loss and much more soft tissue destruction compared to nonsmokers with gum disease. Decreased circulation means that smokers with gum disease are less likely to experience bleeding when brushing their teeth, an early sign of gum disease. While this may lead smokers to believe their gums are healthy, the lack of bleeding actually stems from the decreased flow of blood, which means that the diagnosis and treatment of existing gum disease can be delayed.

Due to the impaired healing response associated with smoking, gum disease treatments also tend to be less effective in people who smoke. In fact, studies have shown people who smoke have twice the likelihood of losing teeth during the five-year period following gum disease treatment compared to people who don’t smoke.

Problems with Implants

Using tobacco products has also been associated with a far greater incidence of implant failure, which occurs when a dental implant fails to fuse properly with the jaw bone that supports it. Dental implants achieve some of their strength from a process called ossification, which occurs when the bone tissue surrounding the implant begins to fuse with the titanium post that supports the artificial tooth or denture. Ossification helps stabilize the implant so that it’s able to withstand the pressures of biting and chewing.

The ossification process requires a good healing response and an unhindered supply of oxygen-rich blood to stimulate tissue growth and development. In people who smoke, the healing response is suppressed, largely due to changes in the blood vessels that restrict blood flow. As a result, it’s more difficult for ossification to take place in people who smoke, and implants are more likely to fail. Dental implants can be placed people who smoke or use smokeless tobacco, but they need to understand the increased risk for failure at the outset of their procedures.

In addition to the serious oral health risks explained above, smoking causes many cosmetic issues. All types of tobacco products are associated with yellowing and staining of the teeth, and people who use tobacco are also much more likely to have chronic bad breath. Tobacco use also can interfere with the appearance of cosmetic treatments like veneers, crowns and bridges, causing these restorations to become dingy and permanently discolored.

Enjoy better oral health

Quitting smoking (or the use of smokeless tobacco) is no easy task, but the benefits are so significant, it’s worth the time and effort expended to kick the habit once and for all. For help quitting, ask your doctor for assistance in finding a support group (online and in-person options are available) and about other options like nicotine patches. You can also visit, a resource established by the National Institute of Health.

Oral issues you should be aware of as you get older

As we get older, our bodies go through various changes which can sometimes lead to new health issues. The same situation happens in your mouth, although many people are not aware of differences in their oral health until something drastic has happened. This is why we’ve written down all the things changing in your mouth that you should be aware of as you age. If you notice any lesion or swelling or any problem in chewing food and drinking cold water we advice you to visit us so our dentists can examine you and explain you about your oral health.

These are the various changes you can see as you grow older :  

Wearing down enamel

Enamel is the hardest part of the tooth structure and all the chewing, grinding, and hard impact that your teeth are put through over the years can take a real toll on their health. Not to mention any breakages, chips, or other trauma your teeth may have been exposed to which may result in even worse consequences down the line. Over time your teeth are gradually worn down from continued use or from damage, and this erosion diminishes the hard protective outer layer of teeth – the enamel – which cannot be naturally regained once it’s lost.

To combat enamel loss, be aware of habits that may be speeding up damage done to your teeth and try to stop them as soon as possible. These habits included chewing ice or other hard things like pens and pencils, grinding your teeth, clenching your jaw, and playing high impact sports without an athletic mouthguard. If you are prone to unconscious teeth grinding or clenching, ask your dentist about being fitted for a mouthguard you can wear while sleeping to protect your teeth. Frequent consumption of highly acidic foods such as fruit juices, citrus fruits, coffee, and soft drinks is also a culprit for enamel erosion as the acids eat away at the protective layer. Try to substitute water for acidic beverages and brush your teeth 30 minutes or so after consuming acidic foods to stop the acids from attacking your teeth before they can start. Since the acids weaken enamel, waiting before brushing is important to avoid causing extra harm.

Dry mouth

Many people find that as they get older, their mouth tends to dry out, either naturally or due to certain medications they take. Saliva is essential in oral care as it helps to wash away food particles and bacteria. Without this cleansing action, the amount of bacteria-related issues and infections you can get increases exponentially. Saliva also keeps the soft tissues of your mouth, such as your tongue and gums, happy and healthy. When your mouth becomes too dry, these tissues can get very irritated, swollen, and can sometimes get wounds or infections. If you experience dry mouth and suspect it is the side effect of a medication you are taking, speak with your medical practitioner about the issue. If your mouth is dry naturally, make sure to drink water regularly throughout the day and, when you take a drink, try to hold the water in your mouth for a few seconds to help wet the soft tissues before swishing it around a couple of times to rinse away any loose plaque and bacteria. Dry Mouth?

Decline of gum health

Your gums are extremely important to the overall health of your mouth as they provide sturdy anchoring for your teeth and provide a protective barrier against oral bacteria entering the body. Over time, your gums can be exposed to damage in various ways and, without proper care, can grow weak and possibly diseased. Smoking, especially over a prolonged period of time, is a major threat to gum health as it decreases your immune system’s ability to fight infection. This means that the protective barrier that gums provide is affected and can not battle against infection as easily. This can lead to gingivitis, gum disease, and other issues that can put your oral and overall health at serious risk.

To protect your gums over the years, avoid smoking altogether. Gum disease can become more prevalent as you age, especially if you have not been carrying out a vigilant teeth cleaning regime. Brushing with fluoridated toothpaste twice each day and flossing at least one a day are considered essential practice to carry on throughout your lifetime in the fight against plaque, tartar, and bacteria buildup that naturally forms in your mouth every day. If left uncleaned, this plaque, tartar, and bacteria can grow to unmanageable levels and lead to infection, tooth decay, and gum disease, all of which require serious care from a dental professional. Leaving gums wounds, inflammation, or bleeding to fester or go unchecked is another way to compromise your oral health. If something doesn’t feel right, always make an appointment with us for a checkup.

Increased risk of oral cancer

As is the case with many types of cancer, the risk of getting oral cancer increases with age. According to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, most people diagnosed with oral cancers are over the age of 55, and men historically have been twice as likely to get it as women. Age is not the only risk factor associated with oral cancers; smoking, using tobacco products, infections associated with HPV, alcohol abuse, and other factors often play a role in developing various kinds of cancer.

Taking all of this into account, it’s important to regularly visit our dentist as grow older, ideally making more frequent visits after the age of 50, or at least as often as recommended by your dental professional. We also recommend regular oral cancer screenings, which are totally painless and super fast. If you notice any bumps, lesions, have issues swallowing, or any other concerns, be sure to mention it to our dentist as soon as possible.

Oral hygiene/dental hygiene means the overall maintenance of the mouth, gums and teeth. It includes daily maintenance at home as well as regular dental checkups and professional teeth-cleaning treatments. Just as it is important for you to brush and floss your teeth regularly, it is equally important that you get professional cleanings done from your dentist/dental hygienist. This is the best way of keeping your natural teeth for years to come.

How to Brush

(1) Begin with the right equipment – a soft bristled toothbrush or an electric toothbrush. If the bristles on your toothbrush are bent or frayed, buy a new one.  A worn-out brush won’t clean your teeth properly.

(2) While brushing the outside surfaces of your teeth, position the brush at a 45-degree angle where your gums and teeth meet. Gently move the brush in a side to side motion several times using small, gentle strokes.

(3) When you are done cleaning the outside surfaces of all your teeth, follow the same directions while cleaning the inside surfaces.

(4) Next you will clean the biting surfaces of your teeth.

If you have any pain while brushing or have any questions about how to brush properly, please be sure to visit the dentist.

How to Floss

Periodontal disease usually appears between the teeth where your toothbrush cannot reach. Flossing is a very effective way to remove plaque from those surfaces. However, it is important to develop the proper technique. The following instructions will help you, but remember it takes time and practice.

(1) To clean the teeth, hold the floss tightly between the thumb and forefinger of each hand. Gently insert the floss tightly between the teeth.  Do not force the floss or try to snap it in to place. Bring the floss to the gum line then curve it into a C-shape against one tooth. Slide the floss up and down until you meet light resistance.

(2) Remember there are two tooth surfaces that need to be cleaned in each space. Continue to floss each side of all the teeth. As the floss becomes soiled, move it to a fresh section.

(3) After brushing and flossing rinse well. Do not be alarmed if during the first week of brushing and flossing your gums bleed or are a little sore. If your gums hurt while flossing you could be doing it too hard or pinching the gum. As you floss daily and remove the plaque your gums will heal and the bleeding should be reduced.

The Oral Hygiene Process

Regardless of how religiously and meticulously you brush & floss every day, over time there will be a build-up of calculus on the teeth. As this calculus builds under the gum line, bacteria begin invading the area and can lead to a range of dental problems. Your dental hygienist will ensure that this calculus build-up is eliminated. This helps in maintaining optimum oral health.

Maintaining Oral Health

Our Dentists are experts at scraping away all the hard plaque & in removing calculus deposits by ultrasonic scaler, which is most advanced technique used now a days. We take x-rays for and will check thoroughly for dental decay, tumors, cysts or changes in the bone-support of the teeth.

Once the cleaning of teeth is finished, we will examine your gums and teeth for any signs of gum disease or tooth decay. We recommend that patients should visit the dentist 2 times every year. This goes a long way in promoting good oral health.

Wisdom teeth are the last to grow. They usually develop during the late teens and for others, the early twenties. Wisdom teeth are four, one at each corner. By the time they grow, the other twenty-eight teeth are usually in place and thus there may be no room for wisdom teeth to grow well. Due to inadequate space, the teeth may partially emerge or grow only at a particular angle. Such teeth are referred to as impacted teeth.

When to Visit a Dentist

If you experience discomfort or extreme pain from your wisdom teeth, the dentist will examine your teeth and let you know if they should be removed. If they feel that the teeth should be extracted, they will carry out an X-ray of your mouth. The X-ray will provide a clear view of the position of the teeth. In case you experience any teeth problems, consult a Mumbai Dental Clinic oral surgery specialist immediately.

Reasons for Removal

If you have impacted teeth but they are not causing any problem, then there is no need to have wisdom teeth removal, as there is no proven advantage of doing so. At times, wisdom teeth that haven’t broken through the gum entirely cause dental issues. Food and bacteria may be trapped around the edges of wisdom teeth, thus causing a buildup of plaque. The plaque build-up may cause:

  • Gum disease: It develops when plaque releases toxins that infuriate your gums, causing them to be swollen, red and painful.
  • Tooth decay: This occurs when the plaque breaks down the tooth surface. When it is more advanced, it may leave cavities in the tooth which may affect the surrounding teeth.
  • Pericoronitis: Occurs when the plaque infects the soft tissue surrounding the tooth.
  • Abscess: Occurs when pus gathers in your wisdom teeth or the surrounding tissue as a result of a bacterial infection.
  • Cellulitis: This is a bacterial infection in the throat, tongue or cheek.
  • Benign growths or cysts: Though uncommon, the impacted wisdom tooth may develop a cyst.

The Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure

Before starting, the oral surgery specialist will give you anaesthesia. It can be local, general or sedation, depending on the expected complexity of the extraction and your comfort. To remove the tooth, the surgeon will cut the gum tissue above the tooth so as to expose the bone and tooth. They may have to cut the tooth into smaller pieces for easier removal. After removing the tooth, they will clean the site and maybe, stitch the wound.

After removal, the patient may experience discomfort and swelling both on the inside and outside of the mouth. The symptoms may last for about three days to two weeks.

How to Have Your Tooth Removed

If you have an impacted wisdom tooth, do not suffer in silence. Talk to us and have it removed. All you ought to do is to click here to book an appointment.
