Save your Teeth from Tooth Decay!

Despite wide spread awareness and constant reinforcement about the importance of maintaining dental hygiene. A large portion of the global population is still inflicted with numerous dental problems like cavities, tooth decay and tooth loss because of either willful ignorance or due to a lack of knowledge and concern about the severity of these problems.

The statistics provided by the World Health Organization suggest that nearly 50% of children under the ages of 5 suffer from more than 4 decayed teeth in UAE. And the incidence of tooth decay is as high as 76% in school going children. This can probably be accounted to the lack of concern we have for the maintenance of our oral health as the study also included that nearly 28% of UAE residents brush their teeth only once a day.

Why is Tooth Decay a serious Dental Problem?

Inside our mouth there are thousands of different types of bacteria present – both good and bad. While the good kinds aid the mouth in digestion, the bad types seek opportunities to damage our teeth at every chance they get.

The process begins when we intake food. The bacteria digest the carbohydrates we eat and then release an acidic substance. This acid attacks the outer enamel layer of the tooth that serves as a protective covering. The acid eats away the tooth, damaging its structure, function and appearance.

The advancements in cosmetic dentistry have enabled dentists in Dubai to rectify the faults in teeth that may be caused by tooth decay and cavities through veneers, crowns, onlay and inlay placements. But the easiest way to protect your teeth from this dental illness is by adopting easy and simple preventative measures to combat bacteria and maintain oral hygiene.

The Obvious yet Crucial Dental Care Habits
  • Brush your Teeth the Right way!
    For maximum protection, dentists prescribe patients to use a fluoride containing toothpaste, that’ll help protect their teeth and will keep them strong. They should also brush their teeth slowly and softly this will enable the bristle to reach the crevices where food particle may hide. Changing your tooth brush at least every 3 months is also crucial in maintaining optimum dental hygiene.
  • Stop Drinking Soda’s and Juices throughout the day
    Every beverage contains sugar content, be it tea, coffee, juice or soda. The constant exposure of your teeth and oral cavity to this sugar will stimulate the bacteria in your mouth to release acid and attack your teeth. To prevent, this don’t drink caffeinated and sugary beverages, or consume snacks throughout the day.
  • Visit your Dentist every 6 months.
    There’s never any harm in getting a second opinion. Your dentist will be able to assure that your teeth are in good condition and are not suffering from any serious dental disease.
Symptoms to Lookout For:

In case of doubt or concern, lookout for these common signs and symptoms that indicate the presence of tooth decay:

  • Frequent Toothaches
  • Increased Tooth Sensitivity
  • Small visible holes in Teeth
  • Discolored and Stained Teeth

Intraoral Camera Technology for better patient diagnosis

The Dental Care in Dubai has introduced the use of the Intraoral Camera as an effective diagnostic tool. This type of advanced dental technology allows for better views of the inside of a patient’s mouth and problem teeth, making it easier to make a diagnosis and therefore provide a better treatment option as well as overall treatment of the problem by an experienced dentist.

The Intraoral camera is not a substitute for X-rays, which provides valuable information needed to identify and treat all potential problems, but a game changer in the dental industry giving the edge of better visuals of the dental problem. We have implemented the use of Intraoral Cameras in order to enhance our diagnostic capabilities and to see beyond what the X-rays can show us, explains a dental surgeon in Dubai.

The advantage of using Intraoral Cameras is that it  can show the surgeon what’s happening inside a patient’s mouth from different angles. Patients also get an opportunity to see what is happening in their mouth with the view of the same images in real time on a large monitor.

This new digital technology has also proven to be helpful in working with insurance companies to get acceptance and the claims passed for various dental procedures and treatment options.

The Intraoral Camera is a highly advanced piece of equipment and is a huge breakthrough in dental technology. The equipment varies and comes in different shapes and sizes, it is as small as a dental mirror and easy to maneuver in the mouth. For the benefit of the patients, the general dentist in Dubai will give the patients a brief virtual video tour of their mouths as the camera, with its own built-in light source, zooms in with up to 25 times magnification of an individual tooth. The patient and dentist have the option of viewing these images and problems and getting more accurate pictures of the patient’s problem and be more involved with the patient to discuss the best possible solution. A problem such as a fractured tooth can be easier to spot and impossible to ignore when it is magnified on a computer monitor or TV screen. The Intraoral Camera is painless and radiation free. While this appliance is designed for Intraoral imaging, some cameras also can capture Extraoral full face images for patient records.

Since the Intraoral Camera has very powerful magnification capabilities, dental surgeons are able to observe and explain the possible problems such as excessive wear, cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities next to fillings and broken tooth fillings in Dubai. These sorts of conditions can be easily overlooked by dental X-rays.

Many patients, especially most of the younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech dental machines and gadgets. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.  However, certain older patient’s can be a little apprehensive about using these new machines and gadgets and need a little explanation from the dentists prior to engaging with the latest dental technology, a good example being the Intraoral Camera.
