BENEFITS  OF  FLUORIDE  IN  DENTAL  HEALTH

What is fluoride?

It is a naturally occurring mineral in water, soil, and various foods. It is known for its ability to strengthen teeth and prevent cavities.

How does fluoride help?

  •           Prevents tooth decay by strengthening tooth enamel and making it resistant to acid attacks from bacteria in plaque
  •           Reverses early decay by remineralizing areas affected by early decay

At iDent Idyll Dental clinic, we are committed to providing comprehensive dental care, including fluoride treatments tailored to your needs.

Ready to protect your smile with fluoride?

Fluorosis - causes,symptoms and treatment procedure

 Fluorosis is a condition that results in white or brown speckles on your teeth. It’s caused by overexposure to fluoride in the early years of life, when your permanent teeth are developing. Fluorosis is a cosmetic concern and isn’t harmful to your health. But there are treatments that can address the issue.


What are the symptoms of fluorosis?

Tooth discoloration is the only symptom of fluorosis. Discoloration can vary depending on the severity of your condition.

  • Questionable: A few very light white flecks and white spots.
  • Very mild: Light white areas covering less than 25% of your tooth surfaces.
  • Mild: Light white areas covering less than 50% of your tooth surfaces.
  • Moderate: White or light brown areas covering more than 50% of your tooth surfaces.
  • Severe: White, light brown or dark brown spots affecting all surfaces. Your teeth may also have pitting (small depressions in your tooth enamel).

How do you get rid of fluorosis?

There are cosmetic dental procedures that can address fluorosis. The treatment that’s best for you depends on several factors, including the severity of fluorosis, your budget and your own personal preferences. Common fluorosis treatments include:

  • Teeth whitening. Your dentist applies bleaching gel to your teeth for a predetermined amount of time. The gel lightens your tooth enamel so it blends in with fluorosis. While teeth whitening is an option for mild cases of fluorosis, other treatments may be more suitable for you.
  • Dental bondingDuring this procedure, your dentist uses tooth-colored composite resin to cover up fluorosis stains. Your teeth are then shaped and polished for natural-looking results.
  • Dental veneersMade from resin or porcelain, veneers are thin shells that adhere to the front surfaces of your teeth. Veneers are custom-made, so you’ll need to have dental impressions to achieve the correct fit and size.
  • Dental crownsLike veneers, crowns are custom-made. However, this type of dental restoration fits over your entire tooth. Your dentist will need to remove some of your natural enamel so the crown fits properly.
  • Enamel microabrasion. During this procedure, your dentist removes a small layer of enamel from your teeth. This helps eliminate many fluorosis stains. Often, your dentist will follow enamel microabrasion with teeth whitening to make the color of your teeth even more uniform.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Impacted Wisdom Teeth


Wisdom teeth, the third molars at the back of the mouth, are the last adult teeth to come in. Most people have four wisdom teeth — two on the top and two on the bottom. When wisdom teeth become impacted, they don't have enough room to emerge or develop in the usual way.

Impacted wisdom teeth don't always cause symptoms. But when an impacted wisdom tooth becomes infected, damages other teeth or causes other dental problems, you may have some of these symptoms:

  • Red or swollen gums.
  • Tender or bleeding gums
  • Jaw pain.
  • Swelling around the jaw.
  • Bad breath.
  • An unpleasant taste in your mouth.
  • A hard time opening your mouth.

What you can do to prevent?
You can't keep an impaction from occurring. But keeping regular six-month dental appointments for cleaning and checkups allows your dentist to watch the growth and emergence of your wisdom teeth. Regularly updated dental X-rays may show impacted wisdom teeth before any symptoms start.

Dental anxiety and coping mechanism.


 Symptoms of dental anxiety

How do you know if you have dental anxiety? Some people experience some level of uneasiness before a dental appointment, yet the anxiety doesn’t stop them from keeping appointments.

People living with dental anxiety, on the other hand, can experience distressing symptoms before appointments. For example:

  • heart palpitations
  • panic attacks
  • low blood pressure
  • aggressive behavior
  • extreme sweating
  • crying
  • feeling faint



Dental anxiety can affect people of all ages. Here are several coping mechanisms to help ease your fears and get you back in the dental chair.

Communicate your concerns to your dentist

Don’t hesitate to communicate your concerns to your dentist. They can take steps to make the process easier. They can explain each step from start to finish, so you know what to expect. They can also recommend techniques to help you relax and feel more comfortable at the appointment.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you understand the procedure, you may feel less anxiety.

Breathing exercises

Deep breathing exercise can relax your mind and help you feel calmer. These exercises can reduce stress during dental appointments.

Close your eyes and slowly inhale through your nose. Hold it for a few seconds, and then slowly exhale through your mouth. Repeat this several times.

Meditation and muscle relaxation

Anxiety can worsen while sitting in the waiting room or once you climb into the dental chair. In this situation, meditation is a simple practice to reduce stress and promote calmness.

It involves a state of heightened awareness, focus, and muscle relaxation that you can achieve anywhere — even at your dentist office.

Once you’re seated, close your eyes or fix your eyes on an object, and then allow your body to completely relax. Pay attention to different parts of your body and make a conscious effort to release tension, relaxing your entire body starting with your head down to your feet.

You can meditate before and during your appointment to remain calm and focused.

Guided imagery

 Another techniques involves visualising happy thoughts while sitting in the dentist chair. Go to your “happy place” and think about funny or positive past memories. Being nostalgic can help you feel happier, which can calm and relax your mind.

Hypnosis

Hypnotherapy involves quieting the conscious mind and creating a state of calmness. This guided relaxation practice helps you achieve a trance state, at which point a hypnotherapist uses the power of suggestion to curb your anxiety. It’s important to note that a hypnotherapist cannot make you do anything that you yourself would not want to do.

Distraction

Having a distraction in the dental office can also relieve anxiety. Talk with your dentist beforehand. See if you can watch TV or a movie during your appointment, or perhaps wear headphones and listen to music.

Bring a friend

The support of a relative or friend might calm your mind. Ask your dentist if someone may accompany you in the exam room. Even if you can’t talk to this person during your appointment, their presence can help you feel safe, comfortable, and relaxed.

Analgesia

s is a type of medication used to relieve pain. You can find these drugs over-the-counter, but they’re also used during dental appointments to provide pain relief and reduce moderate anxiety.

Dentists typically use nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, which is a colorless and odorless gas you breathe in before or during your procedure. Check with your dental insurance provider to see if they offer coverage for nitrous oxide. Some plans may not cover this benefit.

Anxiety-relieving medication

For moderate anxiety, some dentists may prescribe a short-acting anti-anxiety medication to help lessen anxiety before an appointment. You’ll take the medication at least one hour before your visit.

Conscious sedation

An option for moderate to severe anxiety is conscious sedation. This involves taking an oral sedative a few hours before your dental appointment. This isn’t general anesthesia, so you won’t be asleep during the appointment. You’ll remain conscience and responsive, but in a very relaxed state.

General anesthesia

This involves being fully asleep or unconscious during a dental procedure, and it’s an option for severe dental anxiety.

Keep in mind that dental anaesthesia is sometimes administered in a hospital setting by an anesthesiologist. Some dental offices can provide general anesthesia, but only when a dentist has received specialized training.
