The Role of Imaging In Smile Dentistry

Dentistry is the only field in medicine that has the power to transform a crooked smile into a flawless one that enhances the beauty of a person. The field of dentistry has come a long way in the past three decades and has witnessed great advances in technology in all its branches.

One such technique that makes the patients the co-designer of their treatment by sharing their expectations and aesthetic requirements with the dental team is Digital Smile Design(DSD).

With the help of DSD videos and mockups, the dentist will get a better understanding of the relationship between the teeth, gums, and lips, as well as how they work together to create a patient's smile. The process of the DSD starts with the complete oral examination followed by treatment identification and discussion. Once the treatment is finalized, a digital photo of the current smile will be taken, and various change factors will be incorporated that provides a glimpse of the changed smile or facial appearance to the patient. Once the patients confirm and agree on the outcome, treatment will be started.

This dental restoration solution will help to solve your aesthetic problems as well as the unexpected pain from your bad tooth.

What is restorative dentistry?


The term itself explains its motive of replacing the damaged or missing teeth. Fillings, crowns or caps, bridges and implants are common restorative options. The goal is to bring back your natural smile and prevent future oral health issues.

These restorative methods help you to keep your teeth properly aligned and to provide proper oral health care. It also helps to prevent plaque and problems related to it.

Merits of this method


1. Proper Eating:

People with a bad tooth or a damaged tooth will find it difficult to eat anything. They would usually avoid taking a bite from an apple or a crispy snack or chewing a candy stick. You will avoid parties and functions just because you cannot eat well. Sometimes you will have food partially chewed which later creates gastrointestinal diseases.

All these problems can come to an end after this tooth replacing method. You can live a normal life, eating what you love most and enjoy all the programs.

2. Confident smile

People with a bad tooth often avoid addressing the public. They lack confidence as they have a missing or damaged tooth.

Restorative dentistry can replace your missing teeth and since they appear like the original teeth, none would be the wiser. Therefore, you can smile all the time without anyone knowing that you have had any restorative work done.

3. Maintaining self-assurance

Restorative dentistry can fix your missing tooth or damaged tooth and help you find a way to fix your self-confidence.

4. Long Lasting Solution

Dental restoration procedures often use ceramic or porcelain crowns which are durable and long lasting. When you have a broken tooth and want to avoid gum infections, it is recommended that you consider dental implants. These dental implants also help the old age people in strengthening the jawbone.

5. Proper teeth alignment 

If you have any tooth missing, other teeth shift their positions gradually. Restorative dentistry is one way to replace missing teeth and prevent the other teeth from moving from its place.

Why Are Dental Crowns Recommended After A Root Canal?

A root canal treatment is conducted when the pulp chamber in the roots of teeth gets infected or damaged. The pulp chamber contains nerves and blood vessels which can get infected. Once infected it needs to be removed so that it does not cause further damage. Through an RCT the infected pulp is removed by the dentist and filled with unique artificial dental material that is supposed to stay for a long period of time. This artificial filling will stay there for a long period of time if it is properly covered. Here is when crowns are required to provide that extra strength to the teeth structure.

What is the purpose of a crown in RCT?


A broken, damaged or weak tooth needs to undergo surgery. A crown, also known as a tooth cap acts as a shield to protect the weak tooth from falling off or having further damage. The thumb rule in an RCT is to place a crown over the tooth that underwent RCT.

Generally, a Root Canal gets completed within 2 sittings. After the pulp chamber is cleaned and filled, in the final sitting the crown or cap is placed on the tooth. The doctor will do an X-Ray to get the exact shape of your teeth structure. Crowns are customized according to the patient's teeth structure.

What are the benefits of a crown or cap?


  • As they are made up of strong metals like zirconia, porcelain or ceramic, they tend to stay for a long period of time. They provide strength to the weak tooth and prevent further damage.
  • Gaps left between the teeth get filled by the help of customized crowns.
  • They help to improve teeth appearance.
  • Provides natural look as they are customized to match the colour and shape of your actual teeth.
  • Provides better dental occlusion.

Do you have sensitive teeth?

Do you have teeth bleeding while brushing, eating hot food and drinking cold milk? Do you get a severe but temporary pain when you are engaged in any of these activities? Sensitive teeth occur due to worn tooth enamel and decayed tooth roots. The discomfort can also be a result of tooth cavity, gum disease, cracked tooth etc. In short, worn enamel, gums, and cavities, decaying etc cause hypersensitivity in conditions such as heat and cold. Around 57% of the population irrespective of gender and age suffer from tooth sensitivity.

How Sensitive Tooth Occurs?

 

1. Teeth grinding
2. Cavities
3. Broken/Worn/ New dental work
4. Worn enamel
5. Brushing too hard
6. Whitening or bleaching
7. Acidic food and soda
8. Exposed tooth root
https://www.chennaidentalclinic.in/sensitive-tooth.html

 

Types of Dental Sensitivity


Dentinal Sensitivity and related Treatment

The middle layer of the tooth called Dentin is coated by enamel and cementum above and below the gum line respectively. Tubules normally extend from tooth pulp to dentins. These dentins consist of nerves and they are exposed when the enamel is damaged. It leads to more sensitivity. It can occur mainly because of improper dental hygiene, untreated cavities, and unhygienic food habits. After proper cleaning of teeth, a fluoride layer is applied just over the teeth so that the sensitivity can be reduced to a certain extent. In order to block the tubules, highly recommended products by dentists such as dental sealants, tooth retainers are used. The tubules are then altered by laser beam.

Pulpal Sensitivity


The pulp in the tooth is affected due to the grinding of teeth, infection or decay in the region, improper filling. The damaged nerves are removed and a non-reactive substance is placed.

Prevention

Brushing teeth twice day using toothpaste with medium levels of abrasives will help reduce the sensitivity. Staying away from acidic foods and drinks are another option.

Sensitive teeth treatment in Chennai is very much available in Srivari Dental Clinic Ramapuram. The clinic run under the guidance of expert dentists offers high-class services so that tooth sensitivity solution among the people of Tamilnadu is just not a worry.
