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
GUMMY SMILE When you smile, do you feel the appearance of your upper teeth is overshadowed by excessive gum tissue? Are you of the opinion that your upper teeth appear too short compared to the amount of gingival tissue displayed when you smile? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, you may have a condition that is commonly called a “gummy smile” or excessive gingival display. The good news is that a GUMMY SMILE can be corrected through various treatment options. Causes • An excessive display of gum tissue in your upper jaw can result from the abnormal eruption of the teeth. Teeth covered by excessive gum tissue appear short, even though they may actually be the proper length. • The muscle that controls the movement of your upper lip could be hyperactive, causing your upper lip to rise up higher than normal. When this occurs, more of your gum tissue is exposed when you smile. An Esthetic Problem or Something More? The smile line or esthetic zone – the teeth that are showing when you are smiling – is determined by several factors, including: • The shape and size of your lips. • Your facial muscles. • The shape and size of your teeth. • Your gum tissue. Treatments Your dentist may refer you to a specialist, like a periodontist, orthodontist or an oral surgeon. Depending on the nature of your specific clinical condition, treatment could include one or more of the following: • Same-day laser treatments (in minor cases). • Surgical lip repositioning. • Orthodontics (braces) to move the teeth into more suitable positions. • Surgical Sculpting of the gingival tissues and bone to create healthier and more attractive looking gum contours. • Maxillofacial surgery to reposition the bone. #Dentist-In-Vadodara #Dental-Clinic-In-Vadodara #Dental-Implants-In-Vadodara #Best-Dentist-In-Vadodara www.upadhyaydentalvadodara.com
