Dental implants ‘may be needed by tooth grinders’

Fri

People who grind their teeth may cause damage that can only be fixed by dental implants. Dental implants could be necessary for persistent tooth grinders, according to one US dentist.

Dr Sultan Sherzoy from New Jersey revealed that bruxism, or tooth grinding, can often be caused by stress or anxiety and is often noticeable the following morning when a patient wakes up with headaches or pain in the shoulder, jaw or neck.

He added that in some situations, the sufferer is not aware of the problem and must be informed by a partner who has heard the noise or diagnosed at a regular dental check up.

“If symptoms are present, the condition will be observed for changes over the next several visits before a treatment programme is established,” Dr Sherzoy explained.

In extreme cases, teeth may be broken or lost.

Dental implants, which are false teeth supported by a titanium metal rod inserted into the jawbone, can solve the problem of missing teeth, while crowns can be put on broken onesADNFCR-2621-ID-800015258-ADNFCR

Over-the-counter products ‘no good for tooth whitening’

Fri

Over-the-counter products 'no good for tooth whitening'Cleaning teeth vigorously in the hope of making them whiter actually does more harm, one expert has claimed.

Dr Sultan Sherzoy suggested individuals try Zoom teeth whitening instead to improve the appearance of their smile.

He described how stained teeth require professional treatment and that over-the-counter products will not give the desired effect.

The procedure takes 90 minutes in which time the bleaching agent is applied to the gums and activated by a light that accelerates the brightening of the teeth, the specialist explained.

Dr Sherzoy said: “There is a safe, fast solution to those who want to achieve that sparkling white smile.”

Zoom whitening can be used to treat discolouration caused by tobacco, tea, coffee, red wine and medications, he added.

Entertainment blog Viral Socialite recently advised people to avoid acidic foods and carbonated drinks to help maintain a whiter smile and instead eat oranges which are rich in the natural bleaching agent vitamin C.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19858609-ADNFCR

Bleeding gums ‘could be fatal’

Bleeding gums 'could be fatal'Ignoring bleeding gums could put you at risk of more than just needing emergency dentistry, an expert has claimed.

Cosmetic dentist Dr Sultan Sherzoy explained that bleeding gums are a sign of tissue damage and although may appear minor, can cause serious conditions such as strokes, heart attacks and even birth defects.

Urging people to seek treatment if they notice problems Dr Sherzoy said: “As gum disease progresses, your gums begin to pull away from your teeth … if left untreated, gum disease will begin destroying tissue and even your jawbone.”

He revealed that new evidence has suggested gum disease increases the level of biological fluid and can induce labour in pregnant women, while recent research published in the British Medical Journal found that people who failed to brush their teeth regularly were at a higher risk of suffering from heart disease in later life.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19818253-ADNFCR

Conscious sedation ‘eliminates stress’

Sun

People could reduce their stress by having conscious sedation in place of anaesthesia.

Conscious sedation could be a better choice for people undergoing emergency or cosmetic dentistry treatments if they find being put to sleep too stressful, it has been claimed.

According to Dr Sultan Sherzoy, a dentist from New Jersey, 30 per cent of people who undergo treatments are afraid of anaesthesia and this can result in them putting off visiting their dentist and any problems they have with their teeth getting worse.

However, there is a solution to this issue, he claimed, sedation dentistry, which is where a person is given a pill to put them almost out, but not quite.

Dr Sherzoy argued: “The amazing thing about this is that unlike anaesthesia where a patient is completely unconscious, asleep or unable to respond, patients under conscious sedation are able to respond to commands and breathe on their own.”

Elsewhere, news provider Oromo Index recently reported that there are a range of options available to those looking to sharpen up their smile. These include contouring or reshaping of misshapen teeth, teeth whitening treatments, bonding, dental veneers, bridges and gum lifts.

Lumineers ‘a first step to dental veneers’

Wed

Dental veneers can help improve a person’s appearance, it has been claimed.

People who wish to improve the appearance of their teeth have been advised that having a set of dental veneers fitted could be the solution they require, but a first step could be the fitting of Lumineers.

According to US dentist Dr Sherzoy, the product can be fitted to a person’s teeth without the need drill out areas for adhesive bonding.

The drawback of the product, however, is that it is less hardwearing than traditional dental veneers and will need replacing more frequently.

Despite this, Dr Sherzoy claims Lumineers can achieve a more natural look for the patient and can be fitted in fewer sessions – often being achieved in just two sittings.

Elsewhere, WorlDental recently reported dental veneers can be made from a custom resin or from porcelain, although each has its advantages and drawbacks.

However, both enable a person to improve the appearance of their teeth and will last anywhere up to 15 years before they need replacing.

Dry mouth ‘is an issue for many’

Fri

Having a dry mouth could be detrimental to oral health.

Many people suffer from a dry mouth but do not realise the harmful effects it can have on oral health, it has been claimed. dry mouth

Business Week reported in its Executive Health section that symptoms of the disorder can include a sore throat, a burning sensation, hoarse voice, nasal dryness and difficulty speaking and swallowing.

In addition, dry mouth can lead to inflammation of the tissues in the mouth and this can be exceedingly painful.

However, if left untreated, the problem can lead to a build up of plaque, as saliva is needed to help rid the mouth of debris left behind while eating and this in turn can lead to decay and the need for emergency dentistry treatments.

Elsewhere, Cosmetic Dentistry Guide recently reported New Jersey emergency dentistry professional Dr Sherzoy claimed smoking can cause both tooth and bone loss in the jaw.

He therefore warned against the habit and noted it can cause bad breath, tooth discolouration and an increased build-up of plaque.
