Latest dental treatm
Latest dental treatment in Ludhiana The field of dentistry is constantly evolving and changing to best suit patient needs. 123Dentist is always on the lookout for new and emerging technology to make our patients’ experience as comfortable as possible. Here is just a few of the different technologies that 123Dentist practices use to ensure we provide world-class service to all our patients: 1. VELscope—VELscope is a special type of light that a dentist will shine in a patient’s mouth to detect any abnormalities. This new form of technology is effectively used to detect early forms of cancer or disease during an oral cancer screening. 2. Digital X-Rays—Digital X-rays are faster and contain less radiation than traditional X-rays. When a patient has a digital X-ray done, the image appears on the computer in a matter of seconds. Your dentist can then zoom into the image to better assess and educate the patient regarding their oral health. Digital X-rays are also less harmful for patients as they contain up to 90% less radiation compared to traditional X-rays. 3. Invisalign—Invisalign are clear, practically invisible braces that can gently straighten your teeth. They provide an effective and comfortable way to straighten your smile without the inconvenience of wearing heavy, metal braces. Invisalign braces are easy to take out for cleaning and don’t require a restriction on what type of foods to eat. They get the job done in less time with less hassle. 4. Laser Dentistry—Lasers are used to improve efficiency and eliminate discomfort in a number dental procedures, including filling cavities, reducing tooth sensitivity, getting rid of tumors, and whitening. Laser dentistry is fast, painless, and can effectively eliminate any form of bacteria during the procedure to avoid any further complications or problems. 5. Dental Implants—Dental implants are screw-replacements for the root portion of missing teeth. Implants are used to restore healthy smiles when patients have missing teeth. Implants are effective because they can replace missing teeth, while still giving the patient the feel and look of a natural tooth. 6. HealOzone—HealOzone is a fast, easy and painless way to eliminate tooth decay. HealOzone is effective because it contains ozone (O3), which is a common, natural gas that effectively kills bacteria and fungus. HealOzone is a great tool to detect and get rid of any early signs of tooth decay before it progresses to a more advanced stage. 7. DIAGNOdent— DIAGNOdent is a new, state of the art device that dentists use to detect cavities that are hiding in places regular x-rays can’t find. It ensures that your mouth has been thoroughly checked for early signs of cavities to avoid you having to spend more in the future if the cavities progress and expand. 8. Intraoral Camera—The intraoral camera is a tool that dentists use to gain precise and well-defined pictures of hard to see places within a patient’s mouth. The camera also allows dentist to show these images to patients while assessing and educating the patient’s needs. This new form of technology allows dentist to conduct a thorough checkup of your mouth and better assess their patient’s oral care needs. 9. Zoom! Whitening—Zoom! Whitening is a new, state of the art whitening treatment that gives our patients fast and easy results. In just one appointment, Zoom! Whitening can make a significant change in a person’s smile and can make their teeth up to eight shades whiter. 10. Nitrous Oxide and (Intravenous) IV Sedation—Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, can calm a patient down to a point that they are relaxed but can still interact with their dentist. On the other hand, IV sedation puts a patient to sleep completely so that they are unaware of what happened during their dental session. This is usually recommended for patients who are fearful of going to the dentist or for procedures that are painful such as wisdom teeth extraction. Visit a 123Dentist location today!

Bad breath treatment
Bad breath treatment in Ludhiana Diagnosis: Sometimes called halitosis, bad breath is usually caused by poor oral hygiene habits, infections that occur in the mouth, unhealthy habits, such as smoking and alcohol intake, and foods that you eat. Other culprits include dry mouth, respiratory tract infections, systemic diseases such as diabetes, kidney, liver and lung disease and gastrointestinal issues, which may include acid reflux and other stomach digestion problem Cause: Most bad breath starts in your mouth, and there are many possible causes that include: certain foods you eat (garlic and onions, in particular), alcohol or cigarettes, poor oral hygiene, gum disease, diabetes, dry mouth, sinus or throat infections, lung infections, kidney/liver failure and gastrointestinal issues. Treatment: Always make sure you’re practicing great oral care habits. Brushing twice a day and flossing daily will help to control plaque development and use of a tongue scraper will help control odor causing bacteria that form on the tongue. Use of floss is important to keep the spaces in between your teeth clean. Regular dental visits twice a year for a check-up and professional cleaning are also excellent steps.

Dental Implants ludh
Dental Implants ludhiana Implants are devices that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are used to support crowns, bridges or dentures. Implants are surgically placed in your jawbone. Most of the time, implants feel more natural and secure than other methods of replacing missing teeth, such as dentures. There are many reasons it's important to replace missing teeth: Having all of your teeth can make you more self-confident. You don't worry that people notice that you have teeth missing. When teeth are lost, the area of the jawbone that held those teeth starts to dissolve. Implants help to preserve the bone and the shape of your jaw. Tooth loss affects how well you chew and what foods you are able to eat. Some people who have missing teeth have poor nutrition, which can affect overall health. Raw fruits and vegetables require more chewing. Someone who finds it difficult to chew may avoid them. Other options, such as blending, pureeing and juicing, are not always considered. The loss of teeth can change your bite, the way your teeth come together. Changes in your bite can lead to problems with your jaw joint, called the temporomandibular joint. Losing teeth can lead to changes in your speech. This also can affect your self-confidence. There are several types of implants, including: Root form Subperiosteal Mini Root-form implants are the most common type used today. A root-form implant is made of titanium. It looks like a small cylinder or screw. After an implant is placed in the jawbone, a metal cylinder called an abutment eventually is attached to it. The abutment serves as a base for a crown, denture or bridge. The key to the success of all implants is a process called osseointegration. This is how the bone in the jaw grows into and around the implant. Titanium is a special material that the jawbone accepts as part of the body. The ability of titanium to fuse with bone was discovered by accident. In 1952, a scientist named Per-Ingvar Brånemark was using titanium chambers screwed into bones as part of his research. He was trying to learn about how bone healed after an injury. When he tried to remove the titanium chambers, he found they had become integrated with the bone. Dr. Brånemark then did further research into how titanium implants might work. In 1965, the first root-form implants were placed in people. Other types of implants also have been used for the last 30 to 40 years. Many implant systems are available from various dental manufacturers. Success Studies indicate that surgical placement of root-form implants is successful more than 90% of the time. When these implants fail, the problems usually occur within the first year after surgery. After that, only about 1% of all implants fail each year. Implants have become increasingly popular since the American Dental Association (ADA) endorsed them in 1986. Between 1986 and 1999, the number of implant procedures tripled. It is now estimated that more than half a million implants are placed every year in the United States.

Loose denture solution ludhiana An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants. An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants. Implant-supported dentures usually are made for the lower jaw because regular dentures tend to be less stable there. Usually, a regular denture made to fit an upper jaw is quite stable on its own and doesn't need the extra support offered by implants. However, you can receive an implant-supported denture in either the upper or lower jaw. You should remove an implant-supported denture daily to clean the denture and gum area. Just as with regular dentures, you should not sleep with the implant-supported dentures at night. Some people prefer to have fixed (permanent) crown and bridgework in their mouths that can't be removed. Your dentist will consider your particular needs and preferences when suggesting fixed or removable options. How Does It Work? There are two types of implant-supported dentures: bar-retained and ball-retained. In both cases, the denture will be made of an acrylic base that will look like gums. Porcelain or acrylic teeth that look like natural teeth are attached to the base. Both types of dentures need at least two implants for support. Bar-retained dentures — A thin metal bar that follows the curve of your jaw is attached to two to five implants that have been placed in your jawbone. Clips or other types of attachments are fitted to the bar, the denture or both. The denture fits over the bar and is securely clipped into place by the attachments. Ball-retained dentures (stud-attachment dentures) — Each implant in the jawbone holds a metal attachment that fits into another attachment on the denture. In most cases, the attachments on the implants are ball-shaped ("male" attachments), and they fit into sockets ("female" attachments) on the denture. In some cases, the denture holds the male attachments and the implants hold the female ones. The Implant Process The implants usually are placed in the jawbone at the front of your mouth because there tends to be more bone in the front of the jaw than in the back. This usually is true even if teeth have been missing for some time. Once you lose teeth, you begin to lose bone in the area. Also, the front jaw doesn't have many nerves or other structures that could interfere with the placement of implants. The time frame to complete the implant depends on many factors. The shortest time frame is about five months in the lower jaw and seven months in the upper jaw. This includes surgeries and the placement of the denture. However, the process can last a year or more, especially if you need bone grafting or other preliminary procedures. Two surgeries usually are needed. The first one places the implants in the jawbone under your gums. The second surgery exposes the tops of the implants. The second procedure comes three to six months after the first. A one-stage procedure is now used sometimes. In this procedure, your dentist can place the implants and the supporting bar in one step. The success rate of this procedure is high.

Dental emergencies L
Dental emergencies Ludhiana Most oral emergencies relate to pain, bleeding, or orofacial trauma and should be attended by a dental practitioner. However, in the absence of access to dental care, a medical practitioner may be called on to help. Jaw fractures require the attention of oral or maxillofacial surgeons.​surgeons. Table 1 Dental indications for urgent admission to hospital Trauma Middle third facial fractures Mandibular fractures unless simple or undisplaced Zygomatic fractures where there is danger of ocular damage Inflammatory lesions and infections Cervical or facial fascial space infection Oral infections in which patient's condition is “toxic” or severely immunocompromised Tuberculosis (some) Severe viral infections Severe vesiculobullous disorders (pemphigus, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis) Blood loss Severe or persistent hemorrhage (particularly in a patient with a bleeding tendency) Others Diabetes mellitus under poor control DENTAL PAIN Pulpal pain is spontaneous, strong, often throbbing, exacerbated by temperature, and outlasts the evoking stimulus. Localization is poor, and pain tends to radiate to the ipsilateral ear, temple, or cheek. The pain may abate spontaneously, but the patient should still be referred for dental advice because the pulp has probably necrosed, and acute periapical periodontitis (dental abscess) will probably follow (figure 1). Endodontics (root canal treatment) or tooth extraction is required. Figure 1 Figure 1 Orofacial swelling in a patient with an acute dental abscess Periapical periodontitis pain is spontaneous, severe, persists for hours, is well localized, and is exacerbated by biting. The adjacent gum is often tender to palpation. An abscess may form (gumboil), sometimes with facial swelling, fever, and illness (figure 2). Fascial space infections are fortunately rare because they threaten the airway: patients should be referred to a specialist (see box). In the absence of immediate dental attention, it is best to incise a fluctuant abscess and to give antimicrobial agents (such as amoxicillin) and analgesic medication. The acute situation usually then resolves, but the abscess will recur because the necrotic pulp will become reinfected unless the tooth is endodontically treated or extracted. A chronic abscess, however, may be asymptomatic apart from a discharging sinus. Rarely, this may open on to the skin (figure 3). Figure 2 Figure 2 Chronic dental abscess at a typical site, in this case, related to the broken molar Figure 3 Figure 3 Dental sinus opening on to skin BLEEDING Most oral bleeding results from gingivitis (see Toolbox, wjm April 2001) or trauma, but if it is prolonged, the patient should have an evaluation for a bleeding tendency. Trauma After a tooth is extracted, the socket bleeds normally for a few minutes but then clots. Because clots are easily disturbed, patients should be advised not to rinse their mouth, disturb the clot, chew hard, take hot drinks or alcohol, or exercise for the next 24 hours. If the socket continues to bleed, a gauze pad should be laid across the socket and the patient bite on it for 15 to 30 minutes. If it continues to bleed, a hemostatic agent (such as Surgicel) should be placed in the socket. If the bleeding continues, the socket should be sutured and consideration given to a bleeding tendency. SURGICAL COMPLICATIONS Postextraction pain Some pain and swelling after tooth extraction are common but ease after a few hours. Acetaminophen usually provides adequate analgesia. Pain from complex procedures may last longer and should be controlled with regularly administered analgesic agents. If pain persists or increases, the patient should return to the dentist to exclude a pathologic disorder (such as dry socket or jaw fracture). Infection Localized osteitis (dry socket) occasionally follows an extraction, typically a lower molar extraction. After 2 to 4 days, there is usually increasing pain, halitosis, unpleasant taste, an empty socket, and tenderness. The clinician should exclude retained roots, foreign body, jaw fracture, osteomyelitis, or other pathologic condition, especially if there is fever, intense pain, or neurologic signs such as labial anesthesia. The infection is treated by irrigation with warm (50°C) saline solution or aqueous chlorhexidine, after which the socket is dressed (several concoctions are available), and the patient given analgesic medication and an antimicrobial agent (metronidazole). Actinomycosis is a rare late complication of extraction or jaw fracture and usually presents as a chronic purplish swelling (figure 4). A 3-week course of penicillin is often indicated. Figure 4 Figure 4 Purplish swelling characteristic of actinomycosis Antral complications If the patient has loss of a tooth or root into the antrum, an antimicrobial agent and a nasal decongestant are given and the object located by radiography. A further operation is required. Patients in whom an oroantral fistula (figure 5) develops should be cautioned not to blow their nose. An antimicrobial agent and nasal decongestants are helpful. If a fistula is detected early, primary closure is possible, but others may need flap closure by a specialist. Figure 5 Figure 5 Oroantral fistula after extraction of an upper molar. The antral floor is often in close proximity to the roots of maxillary molars and premolars FRACTURED TEETH Injuries to the primary teeth may be of little consequence with regard to emergency care, but even seemingly mild injuries can damage the permanent successors. As many as 30% of children have damaged permanent teeth by the age of 15 years. Enamel fracture of permanent teeth needs no emergency care, but dental attention should be sought later. More severe injuries affecting the dentine should be treated as urgent because there might be pulpal infection. Emergency care consists of placing a suitable dentine lining material onto the fractured dentine, so prompt treatment by a dentist within the same working day or at least by the following morning is required. Fractured roots require dental advice. AVULSED TEETH Avulsed permanent anterior teeth (figure 6) can be replanted successfully in a child, particularly if the root apex is not completely formed (children younger than 16 years). Avulsed primary teeth should not be replanted. The younger the child and the sooner the replantation, the better the success; teeth replanted within 15 minutes stand a 98% chance of being retained after further dental attention. Figure 6 Figure 6 Oral and dental trauma after a skateboarding accident Immediate replantation gives the best results. Hold the tooth by the crown (do not handle root as that could damage the periodontal ligament). If the tooth is contaminated, rinse it with a sterile saline solution, and if the socket contains a clot, remove it with saline irrigation. Replant the tooth the right way round (ensuring that the labial [convex] surface is facing forward) and manually compress the socket. Splint the tooth; “finger crimping” a foil milk bottle top is a temporary measure, and an alternative is tissue adhesive. The child should see a dentist within 72 hours. If immediate replantation is not possible, the tooth should be placed in an isotonic fluid (cool fresh pasteurized or long-life milk, saline solution, or contact lens fluid). Otherwise, if the child is cooperative, the tooth should be placed in the buccal sulcus and dental care obtained within 30 minutes. Unsuitable and slightly damaging fluids are water (because of isotonic damage as a result of prolonged exposure), disinfectants, bleach, and fruit juice. The use of a doxycycline immersion before reimplantation by the dentist may be helpful in preventing later external root resorption.​resorption.

 Lichen planus treat
Lichen planus treatment Ludhiana Oral lichen planus (LIE-kun PLAY-nus) is an ongoing (chronic) inflammatory condition that affects mucous membranes inside your mouth. Oral lichen planus may appear as white, lacy patches; red, swollen tissues; or open sores. These lesions may cause burning, pain or other discomfort. Symptoms Signs and symptoms of oral lichen planus affect the mucous membranes of the mouth. Appearance The lesions may appear as: Lacy, white, raised patches of tissues Red, swollen, tender patches of tissues Open sores Location These lesions may appear on the: Inside of the cheeks, the most common location Gums Tongue Inner tissues of the lips Palate Pain or discomfort The white, lacy patches may not cause discomfort when they appear on the inside of the cheeks. However, symptoms accompanying red, swollen patches and open sores may include: Burning sensation or pain Sensitivity to hot, acidic or spicy foods Bleeding and irritation with tooth brushing Inflammation of the gums (gingivitis) Painful, thickened patches on the tongue Discomfort when speaking, chewing or swallowing Treatment Oral lichen planus is a chronic condition. There is no cure, so the treatment focuses on helping severe lesions heal and reducing pain or other discomfort. Your doctor will monitor your condition to determine the appropriate treatment or stop treatment as necessary. If you have no pain or discomfort and if only white, lacy lesions are present, you may not need any treatment. For more severe symptoms, you may need one or more of the options below. Symptomatic treatment Treatments such as topical numbing agents can be used to provide temporary relief for areas that are particularly painful. Corticosteroids Corticosteroids may reduce inflammation related to oral lichen planus. One of these forms may be recommended: Topical. Mouthwash, ointment or gel is applied directly to the mucous membrane — the preferred method. Oral. Corticosteroids are taken as a pill for a limited amount of time. Injection. The medication is injected directly into the lesion.
