Answer
1. A disease which affects the gums and other supporting structures of the teeth is known as periodontal disease. It is commonly known as gum disease. The early stage of the disease is referred to asGingivitis and is characterized by inflamed gums which bleed easily. In the more advanced stage, the disease affects the bone and other supporting structures and is known as periodontitis.
2. The process of straightening teeth, is called Orthodontics. It may be loosely defied as the science of moving teeth, straightening irregular, crowded or improperly placed teeth. Dentists who are specially qualified in this area of expertise are referred to as Orthodontists.
3. Oral Cancer is a disease that starts as an uncontrolled growth of cells in the mouth. It leads to disfigurement of the face, debility of body and eventually death.
4. Oral Cancer is the most common of cancers in India with as many as 64,460 cases reported each year. That makes it as common as cancer of the lungs, breast or cervix. As much as 7% of all cancer deaths in males and 4% in famales have been reported to be due to oral cancer. The figure continues to rise rapidly because of bad oral habits such as chewing of gutka, tobacco, and smoking among.
5. Yes, you can, in fact it is strongly recommended because early detection can greatly increase the chances of a complete cure.
• Stand in front of a mirror in good light.
• Open your mouth wide. Look for small lumps or swelling, ulcers, a red or white patch.
• If you have dentures, take them out and inspect your mouth.
• Inspect the lips with your mouth both open and closed.
• Stick your tongue out and inspect the margins, as well as below the tongue.
If you see something that is unexplained, visit your dentist immediately.
6. It is an advanced medical technology for the treatment of tooth loss. A titanium implant is implanted in the toothless area of the jawbone. The jawbone fuses with the titanium surface providing a strong anchorage for the implant. The implant functions as a support for the dental prosthesis constructed over it.
7. Although periodontal diseases can occur at any age, they usually affect adults. It has been found that about 90% of people in the age group of 40+ suffer from some form of gum-disease.
8. Some early warning signs of impending gum disease are:
Gingivitis: Red, swollen or tender gums. Gums that bleed while brushing,
Periodontis:
1. Gums separated from your teeth.
2. Formation of pus between teeth and gums.
3. Change in the way teeth fit together.
4. Loose or shifting teeth.
5. Bad breath or bad taste.
6. Change in colour of the tooth due to tartar accumulation.
If you have the above signs and symptoms, visit your dentist immediately
9. In some cases a patient may need to get some teeth extracted in order to fix the braces. Teeth are only removed after serious consideration. However, if the patient is referred to a qualified orthodontist at a young age and the problem is not severe, then the entire treatment may be carried out without tooth removal. It is critical therefore to visit a dentist at the earliest sign of irregular teeth so that he may refer you to an orthodontist.
10. If you have:
• black or brown spots of decay on your teeth
• in the fissures
• on the smooth surfaces
• food lodgement
• with discomfort
• sensitivity to hot and cold
• chilling pain
Then it is likely that you have tooth decay.
