myth buster

  1. Only sugary food like chocolates cause cavities   : Bacteria in our mouth feed on carbohydrates and produce acid in mouth, which in turn have a negative impact on tooth causing cavities. Food like roti, rice, bread, fruits, vegetables etc can equally cause as like chocolate. So just blaming the chocolate for cavities is just wrong. Apart from maintaining a good oral hygiene practice sticky starchy food should be avoided or monitored.
  2. Oral Prophylaxis or scaling is not good for teeth  : Scaling remove the calculus from and around the tooth and gum, helping it stay healthy and happy. If not done in proper intervals tartar get stuck to the tooth along the gum collar leading to gum infection and gradually the gum collar loosen up and the underneath alveolar bone and tooth may lead to tooth mobility. Scaling does not loosen up the tooth but negligence does.
  3. Extraction lead to poor eye sight. : Extraction of teeth does not lead to poor eye sight, as they do not interact with each other with any possible reason.

  1. Root canal treatment is painful : Decades ago that may have been the case, but with modern technology and anesthetics you won’t experience any more pain. Most of the time literally fall asleep as they really start to feel confident about the procedure, most cases can be treated quickly and comfortably.
  2. Root canal treatment causes illness : Information you may find on the Internet or elsewhere, claiming that if you receive a root canal treatment you’re more likely to become ill or contract a disease in the future simply isn’t true. This false claim was based on long-debunked and poorly designed research conducted nearly a century ago, long before modern medicine understood the causes of many diseases. There is no valid, scientific evidence linking root canal treatment to disease elsewhere in the body.
  3. It’s better to pull a tooth than have root canal treatment : Saving your natural teeth, if possible, is always the best option. Nothing artificial can replace the look or function of a natural tooth so it’s important to always consider root canal treatment as an option. Endodontic treatment has a high success rate and many root canal-treated teeth last a lifetime. Replacing an extracted tooth with a bridge or implant requires more time in treatment and may result in further procedures to neighboring teeth and supporting tissue.

  • Morning Sickness

You may get morning sickness or gastric reflux (heartburn).

  1. The stomach contents are acidic and can coat the teeth when you vomit. This acid can cause dental erosion and increase the risk of tooth decay by dissolving tooth enamel.
  2. Don't brush your teeth for at least 30 minutes after vomiting or reflux. This will give the enamel time to recover from the acid attack.
  3. Instead, rinse your mouth with water after you vomit to help wash the acid away.
  4. Smear some fluoride toothpaste on your teeth to refresh your mouth and help strengthen enamel.

  • TIP TO REMEMBER

  1. Some pregnant women find they gag while brushing their teeth. If brushing makes you feel sick try using a soft small headed toothbrush designed for children and brush later in the morning when you may not gag as much. Concentrate on your breathing as you clean your back teeth.
  2. Brushing without toothpaste may help. Then smear fluoride toothpaste over your teeth after brushing and don’t rinse it off. Return to brushing with fluoride toothpaste as soon as possible.
  3. Fluoride strengthens the teeth and helps to prevent decay.
  4. Fluoride in toothpaste or water does not harm a developing baby.
  5. Calcium is very important for your baby's teeth and bones.
  6. Frequent sugary or acidic snacks and drinks (such as orange juice) increase the risk of tooth decay and erosion.
  7. Choose a wide variety of snacks which are low in sugar, fat and salt, and high in fibre.
  8. From four months your baby's teeth and bones begin to calcify. The calcium and phosphorus needed comes from what you eat, and if necessary from your bones. These minerals do not come from your teeth.

Dental treatments like tooth extraction, RCT, dental X-RAY should be avoided  during pregnancy 

Jaw bone substitutes are costly because implants were delayed..... Implants are expensive because root canal treatment ( RCT ) was avoided..... RCT is taxing because the cavities were not filled.... Cavities were not filled because .... The lethargy to visit a dentist every six months.

Dentistry is not costly........ Irresponsibility is.

Preservation is the rule. Recreating is a custom.
