There may be many symptoms of jaw joint discomfort. From opening to closing, it can range from click to locked jaw or pain. Consult your dentist when you feel any difference in your jaw, because the stage of the disease is important for treatment.
A slight swelling or discoloration is expected on the cheek; However, edema will decrease rapidly with the first 24 hours of cold compress application. Severe pain is not observed, pain medications recommended by the doctor are sufficient to easily control the pain that may occur on the first day.
Yes, you can. Many works have proved that smoking adversely affects the integration of dental implant and bone. Individuals who smoke are 2-3 times more likely to lose their implant.
Teeth whitening is the process of removing colored organic and inorganic substances formed in the porous enamel structure on the surface of the teeth with tooth whitening gels (carbamide peroxide).
Whitening process may cause sensitivity to the teeth even if it is a little. This tooth sensitivity can be against the weather, very hot and cold foods. This is a normal and expected side effect. Tooth sensitivity is usually expected to pass within 24-48 hours. In case of an unexpected situation, the doctor should be consulted.
After a problem-free surgery, not much pain occurs and the pain that occurs occurs is easily controlled with mild painkillers. Edema on the cheek varies greatly depending on the condition of the tooth and from person to person. Cold compress should be applied to the cheek area for the first 24 hours to prevent swelling. Mild swelling is normal and necessary for recovery.
Unfortunately, tooth loss can occur when the gingival border falls below a certain level and the hard tissues surrounding the teeth disappear completely.
In the case of gingival recession, 3 treatment methods are applied, such as treating the damage to the tooth tissue, treating tooth sensitivity and performing the extracted gum tissue surgically.
Gingival recession leads to plaque accumulation, root caries, tooth sensitivity and aesthetic problems due to the deterioration of brushing.
Fissure sealant molar is a protective dental treatment in which the recesses and grooves of the teeth are covered with a fluid filler. It has no harm or side effects.
These are sharp and sudden pain that the teeth give against heat, cold, sweet, sour foods, brushing and even touches. It is a very common condition.Old filled teeth, broken and cracked teeth, dental caries, gum recession, toothbrush abrasion, erosion lesions, post-filling sensitivity, side effects from medication use, whitening sensitivity, teeth grinding and clenching ailments. can be listed as reasons.
This situation differs from person to person. It can vary depending on the person's pain threshold and tolerance. It also varies according to the procedure (canal treatment, filling, tooth cutting, etc.) or the type of treatment (enamel filling, deep dentin filling, canal treatment, lesional canal treatment). This period can range from a few hours to several weeks.
Benign tumors can be caused by salivary glands, gums, bone or dental tissue. The diagnosis can only be made by a biopsy taken by the physician.
It usually shows symptoms such as swelling, pain, absence of existing prostheses, loss of function. Oral cancers can usually develop as a result of untreated wounds, white - red spots, and aphthaphic but not precancerous formations that do not heal for a long time. Symptoms can be summarized as swelling, bleeding, pain, loss of function in the tissue.
Since it will be exposed to a small amount of radiation, it is better not to pull it. If there is a very urgent situation, we can provide a view to only the relevant region with small x-rays taken in very low doses, which we call rvg instead of a panoramic x-ray by wearing a lead apron. The safest period in pregnancy for radiography and dental treatments is the period between 3-6 months, known as the 2nd trimester. If x-ray is mandatory, it is less harmful to take this period.
Braces often occur when the wires first attach, and sometimes after orthodontic treatment control sessions, often without the need to do anything. Depending on the person's pain threshold and severity of perplexity, it may sometimes be necessary to use painkillers. Most patients do not even need to use drugs, and the body adapts to this tension caused by the wires within 2-3 days. Pain may also occur due to the fact that the wires inside the mouth sink into the inside of the cheek during treatment. In this case, the patient may temporarily experience pain using the wax. However, it is necessary to go to an orthodontist as soon as possible to correct the sinking wire.
Most of the pain in the teeth is caused by edema in the region rather than infection. With the intervention of the dentist, edema is reduced, if there is an infection, it is treated. Almost all of the toothaches are conditions that do NOT require antibiotics. Pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs (anti-inflammatory) can be prescribed if the doctor deems it necessary.
The antibiotic used in dental pain without consulting a physician will not only heal the patient, but will also reduce the effectiveness of future antibiotics by creating resistance to the existing bacteria in the body.
In cases where tooth abscess is suspected, a dentist should be examined as soon as possible. The dentist diagnoses the cause of the abscess by clinical and radiological examination. Correct treatment is applied to eliminate the cause.
The relief of symptoms using only medication without any intervention does not mean that the abscess is completely gone and will not recur. Tooth abscess should be treated by a dentist and, if necessary, a maxillofacial surgeon, as it can cause serious or even fatal infections in rare cases.
In smokers, tar accumulation and nicotine-related spots are observed. In the following periods, even if the teeth brush effectively, these spots settle on the tooth. In some faulty applications (salt-carbonate-tooth polish) that our patients make at home, it causes the teeth to turn yellow more by scratching the enamel surface.
There are changes in oral health during pregnancy, but it is not true that during pregnancy there will be calcium loss from the mother's teeth and the mother will lose teeth in every pregnancy. The most important change in this period is the increase in hormone levels.
In parallel, plaque accumulation on the teeth increases. If the plaque is not effectively removed, gingivitis (swelling, bleeding, redness of the gums) occurs. This condition called 'pregnancy gingivitis' affects the majority of pregnant women with different violence, especially in the 2nd and 3rd Month period. The severity of gingivitis, which also existed before pregnancy, may increase with pregnancy and progress to periodontitis. Gingivitis can be prevented by effective care and cleaning of the teeth, balanced nutrition and regular visit to the dentist.
Baby's dental development begins in the womb. The drugs used can negatively affect the baby's dental health. Unconscious use of drugs should be avoided. 'Tetracycline' group antibiotics cause discoloration of the baby's teeth, should not be used during pregnancy. Other antibiotics have not been proven to colorize teeth.
As gum itching is an early finding of gum disease such as gingival bleeding, it will disappear by controlling gingivitis. Cleaning of the calculus in the early stages (gingivitis) requires removal of deep dental stones and inflammatory tissues on the root surfaces in more advanced cases (periodontitis) and smoothing the root surface. In this way, early symptoms such as gingival itching, gingival bleeding, pressure and feeling of tampering in the gums disappear.
It causes the neighboring teeth to fall over in the missing tooth region, the opposite teeth to extend to the missing tooth region and thus to decrease the chewing function. In addition, since the cleaning and maintenance of the toppled or extended teeth will be difficult, there is an increased risk of caries, tenderness, pain due to gingivitis and loss of other teeth.
It has extremely negative effects on finger sucking and jaw structure. If precautions are not taken in a timely manner, disorders that are very difficult to correct may develop and operation may occur in the future. Although sucking fingers and pacifiers cause pushing forward in the teeth at the end of 2 years, the most critical age is 4 years.
It is an extremely important problem. Milk teeth act as natural placeholders until permanent teeth last. If milk teeth are lost prematurely for any reason; other teeth will slide towards this gap and close the location of the milk tooth. This will prevent the permanent tooth, which will last from the bottom, from rubbing at its ideal location. If a permanent tooth cannot be driven from where it should last, it may cause distortion in the teeth and orthodontic problems.
If the early pain in the tooth coating started immediately after the adhesion, tooth sensitivity due to adhesion occurred. The pain in this tooth coating should be expected to pass. However, in case of excessive contact of the coating with the opposite tooth, that is, impact during chewing, you should consult your dentist immediately.
We cannot say that dental caries are precursors of another disease, but it can lead to an indirect focal infection. Bacteria caused by dental caries can be transported to vital organs through blood and lymph circulation, causing serious symptoms.
Aesthetic fillings need careful use. It should not bite very hard. Eating nails, biting a pen, etc. It is necessary to avoid the habits that cause excessive force to the tooth. The care of the teeth to which these fillings are applied is the same as for natural teeth. With correct brushing and flossing, the teeth that fillings are applied are cleaned.
