Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Oral and Maxillofacial surgery, is a specialty area that plays a significant role and is a boon in improving facial aesthetics. Teeth are an integral part of the jawbones and face. Maxillofacial surgery, a specialty of dentistry, not only aligns the bone but also the teeth, so that the functions of chewing and facial aesthetics are maintained. The main advantage of Maxillofacial surgery is that is leaves no scars on the patient's face. This surgery can be used to treat people with a variety of facial defects like a small chin, small upper or lower jaw; fractures of the facial bones as a result of accidents, falls or sports injuries; protruding upper and/or lower front teeth. You can even get rid of that gummy smile, which displays your teeth when you talk or smile. The surgery is also used to improve asymmetrical faces with deformities since birth or formed during development due to any reason. It can even treat jaw tumors and cysts and other diseases of the face involving the mouth and jawbones. Best of all, the results of the surgery can be seen and achieved in one day.

Brush Teeth

"When children's teeth are frequently exposed to acidic drinks, this dissolves the calcium in tooth enamel and over time can lead to a crumbling of the tooth structure" As well as tooth erosion, soft drinks contribute to tooth decay by supplying sugar to the plaque bacteria; about 10 teaspoons in each can. These micro-organisms metabolize sugar and produce acids that cause caries (decay). It isn't just the acid-sugar mix in drinks that poses a dental danger; soft drinks are being drunk instead of tap water and milk, potentially compromising children's intake of protective nutrients such as calcium and fluoride. This change in children's exposure to risk and protective factors may account for some of the recent rise in dental caries observed in children. There has been a steady increase in deciduous "baby" teeth with decay among primary school children & an increase in decay in children's permanent teeth. As well as soft drinks, there are sports drinks, which are formulated to enhance exercise performance but are drunk as a "nice tasting drink". Consumers are lapping up these new alternatives. Sales of energy drinks have increased & most probably it is about 2-3 times more than the increase in soft-drink sales over the same period.

Brushing Your Teeth

From the moment we use our first toothbrush we are constantly hearing about the importance of brushing our teeth after every meal and using dental floss to get what the toothbrush misses. But despite our best efforts and consistency in brushing and flossing our teeth, it is still possible to get cavities. Sometimes the build up of calculus is simply hereditary, but there are a few things we can do to make sure our teeth are as clean as possible. One of the most important ways to keep your teeth clean, other than brushing and flossing, is to make sure you are not snacking excessively in between meals. Your saliva acts as an important cleaning agent and does its best work in-between meals and after brushing. If you are constantly snacking your saliva doesn't have a chance to do its job. Another tool that can provide added benefits is mouth wash, especially mouth wash with fluoride. Your diet is also an important part of the health of your teeth. If you eat a lot of sugary foods you can contribute to the deterioration of your teeth.

Brush Your Teeth

Regular use (but not frequent use) of homemade teeth whitening gel will fetch sparkling effect to your teeth, together with the elimination of damaging bacteria and thus stopping your gum from illness. Though there are no harmful effects in the homemade gel, you have to completely wash your mouth with fresh water after brushing. As a Dentist, we can spot a soft-drink guzzler by the thin, matt, yellow-tinged surface of their front teeth. When we see these telltale signs in teenage clients, our first impulse is to ask: "How much soft drink do you consume?" The answer is usually two to three cans a day. Soft-drink consumption has increased many folds, from about 47 liters a head annually to 113 liters. Soft drinks contain a blend of sugar and acid that produces their trademark bite and tang. This sweet-and-sour cocktail might be gripping for the taste buds, but it is highly corrosive for teeth, especially children's. Young tooth enamel is quite porous and more easily dissolved by acids than mature enamel.
