Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural. Composites cost more than amalgam and occasionally are not covered by some insurance plans. Also, no dental filling lasts forever. Some studies show that composite fillings can be less durable and need to be replaced more often than amalgam fillings. It generally takes longer to place a composite filling than it does for a metal filling. That’s because composite fillings require the tooth be kept clean and dry while the cavity is being filled. Tooth-colored fillings are now used more often than amalgam or gold fillings, probably due to cosmetics. In a society focused on a white, bright smile, people tend to want fillings that blend with the natural color of their teeth. Ultimately, the best dental filling is no dental filling. Prevention is the best medicine. You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by: • brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste • flossing daily • eating a balanced diet • visiting the dentist regularly. www.upadhyaydentalvadodara.com
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CROWN AND ONLAY CROWNS and ONLAYS are different ways to replace missing or broken tooth structure. How a dentist chooses between which restoration depends on how many teeth you are trying to replace. An ONLAY covers only portion of a tooth, and removes minimal tooth structure. Onlays are generally a more conservative approach. The ceramic onlay fits similarly to a puzzle piece and can blend in so well that often times you can't see where the tooth starts and the onlay stops. They are often used as alternatives to large fillings. When a white filling it too large, it often fails after a few years due to the tooth breaking down or a cavity. The white fillings are simply not as strong as ceramic and gold. A CROWN requires that the tooth is trimmed down and covered completely to the gum line. Both onlays and crowns can be made from ceramic or gold. The benefit of the ceramic onlay is the ability to match your tooth color. In areas where the material cannot be seen gold is a great choice because gold fits the closest against the tooth and it is extremely strong. Studies have shown that a gold onlays and crowns have lasted for 50 years! Onlays and crowns are made the same way. The dentist prepares the tooth, takes an impression, sends it to the lab to fabricated, and the tooth is cemented in at the following appointment. Onlays and crowns are important ways dentists can help save and preserve your teeth. |Dental Clinic In Vadodara| |Dental Implants Vadodara| |Best Dentist In Vadodara| www.upadhyaydentalvadodara.com
To prevent cavities and maintain good oral health, your diet -- what you eat and how often you eat -- are important factors. Changes in your mouth start the minute you eat certain foods. Bacteria in the mouth convert sugars and carbohydrates from the foods you eat to acids, and it's the acids that begin to attack the enamel on teeth, starting the decay process. The more often you eat and snack, the more frequently you are exposing your teeth to the cycle of decay. The best food choices for the health of your mouth include cheeses, chicken or other meats, nuts, and milk. These foods are thought to protect tooth enamel by providing the calcium and phosphorus needed to re-mineralize teeth (a natural process by which minerals are re-deposited in tooth enamel after being removed by acids). For those people that are lactose intolerant and cannot ingest milk products, green vegetables such as broccoli and spinach are high in calcium. Other food choices include firm/crunchy fruits (for example, apples and pears) and vegetables. These foods have a high water content, which dilutes the effects of the sugars they contain, and stimulate the flow of saliva (which helps protect against decay by washing away food particles and buffering acid). Acidic foods, such as citrus fruits, tomatoes, and lemons, should be eaten as part of a larger meal to minimize the acid from them. Poor food choices include candy -- such as lollipops, hard candies, and mints -- cookies, cakes, pies, breads, muffins, potato chips, pretzels, french fries, bananas, raisins, and other dried fruits. These foods contain large amounts of sugar and/or can stick to teeth, providing a fuel source for bacteria. In addition, cough drops should be used only when necessary as they, like sugary candy, contribute to tooth decay. The best beverage choices include water (especially fluoridated water), milk, and unsweetened tea. Limit your consumption of sugar-containing drinks, including soft drinks, lemonade, and coffee or tea with added sugar. Also, avoid day-long sipping of sugar-containing drinks -- day-long sipping exposes your teeth to constant sugar and, in turn, constant decay-causing acids. www.upadhyaydentalvadodara.com
https://youtu.be/sPelo35_IWM Who is a prosthodontist? "A pro... pro...prostho.......what????"   Very few people know what a prosthodontist is, but most people will have a dental problem that could warrant a visit to one at some point in their lives.    Prosthodontists are dental specialists who focus on the repair and replacement of damaged teeth and oral structures. Replacement can be a removable denture or fixed bridge or in form of dental implant fixed teeth...   After the completion of dental graduation (B.D.S.), Prosthodontists spend another 3 entire years in a university or hospital setting, learning the history and evidence behind complex dentistry, performing research, and taking care of patients that need very challenging dental care. This is thousands of hours of very structured continuing education for complex restorative cases in a Dental Council registered Dental School or College... It is a lot of work to earn the title of "Certified Specialist" as Prosthodontist and Implantologist....and that is why there are so few of us! Prosthodontists treat patients that need anything from simple fillings and cleanings, all the way to full mouth reconstructions, cosmetic dentistry, and implant dentistry, and have focused their educations and built their practices to offer these kind of treatments. When to visit a Prosthodontist??? Simple answer... Whenever there is need for replacement in your head and neck region; be it your broken or carious/decayed tooth/teeth, extracted tooth/teeth which needs replacement (denture, fixed bridge or dental implants) or any other part including eye, ear and nose...  Visit your Prosthodontist today!!!

SENSITIVE TEETH Is the taste of ice cream or a sip of hot coffee sometimes a painful experience for you? Does brushing or flossing make you wince occasionally? If so, you may have SENSITIVE TEETH. Possible causes include: • Tooth decay (cavities) • Fractured teeth • Worn fillings • Gum disease • Worn tooth enamel • Exposed tooth root In healthy teeth, a layer of enamel protects the crowns of your teeth. Underneath the enamel is dentin. When dentin loses its protective covering of enamel, these tubules allow heat and cold or acidic or sticky foods to reach the nerves and cells inside the tooth. Dentin may also be exposed when gums recede. The result can be hypersensitivity. Sensitive teeth can be treated. The type of treatment will depend on cause of sensitivity. Your dentist may suggest one of a variety of treatments: • Desensitizing toothpaste • Fluoride gel. • A crown, inlay or bonding. • Surgical gum graft. • Root canal. Proper oral hygiene is the key to preventing sensitive-tooth pain. Ask us if you have any questions about your daily oral hygiene routine or concerns about tooth sensitivity. |Dental Clinic In Vadodara| |Dental Implants Vadodara| |Best Dentist In Vadodara| www.upadhyaydentalvadodara.com
