The C-FACTOR for Healthy Gums.

In 1497 when Vasco da Gama sailed round the Cape of Good Hope, 100 out of his 160 men died of a strange disease. Nearly 300 years later it was discovered that prolonged consumption of a diet devoid of fresh fruit and vegetables was what caused it! Scurvy, which results from vitamin C deficiency, has been known since the time of the Ebers papyrus in Egypt (1500 BC). British sailors in the 19th century were referred to as ‘limeys’ because of their consumption of citrus fruits to prevent scurvy while on long voyages. Vitamin C is essential for healthy gums, is required for healing of wounds besides being necessary for a number of metabolic processes in the body. All the more reason to have your fruit, and eat it too!
Dietary sources:
Man, unlike several animals, is unable to produce vitamin C in the body. So, that makes it very important that we derive our daily requirement from our diet. Vitamin C is found aplenty in oranges and other citrus fruits, blackcurrants, guavas, green peppers, broccoli, raw cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts and potatoes. The recommended dietary intake ranges from 35 mg. in infants to 60-75 mg. in adults.
What happens in scurvy?Scurvy, where there is a deficiency of ascorbic acid or vitamin C, could be either adult or infantile. Ascorbic acid is responsible for formation of ‘collagen’ in connective tissues, the absence of which leads to swollen and spongy gums particularly in between teeth. The colour is a violaceous red with a shiny surface. The gums bleed easily; the teeth become loose and may even fall out. In infants the swollen gums almost cover the teeth.Fresh wounds fail to heal. There is bleeding under the skin in the lower thighs, feet and ankles; spontaneous bleeding may occur into the joints, under the nails or through the nose.
You may be unaware of this deficiency. But if you’re suffering from any of the above-mentioned symptoms, consult your physician immediately and get a complete blood picture done. Once you are through with him, consult your dentist; he will check with the physician and take the best possible course of action. In the meantime, call yourself a ‘limey’ and binge on the oranges!

The steps involved in the extraction of a wisdom tooth and subsequent post extraction care are given below.

The angulation of the wisdom tooth, the amount of bone over it and the proximity of the tooth to major nerves and vessels through bony landmarks are noted. You are prescibed antibiotics to take care of infection
2. Numbing the tissues surrounding the wisdom tooth :A local anaesthetic injection is given inside the mouth, which blocks the sensation in that particular area. Sedation to the patient by drugs like Valium half an hour prior to the surgery provides a marked reduction in anxiety. Sometimes the whole procedure is done under general anaesthesia if the condition demands it or if the patient wishes so and is a joint decision taken by the dentist and patient.
3. Access to the wisdom tooth within bone :An incision is made in the gums and a flap of tissue is reflected. A portion of the bone that lies over the wisdom tooth is removed with a special drill. To minimise the amount of bone that must be removed to get the wisdom tooth out, the dentist will often section the wisdom tooth into parts during the extraction prodedure; each part is smaller than the whole tooth, each can be removed through a small opening in the bone.

When Your tooth pops out !

FUNNY as it may sound, there are chances that an entire tooth could pop out of its socket in the mouth as a result of a fall or other accidental means.
Well, the good news is that you could have it back in place in your mouth if your’re able to preserved it well and transport it safely to your dentist within a stipulated time period. Such an injury is termed ‘avulsion’ and is three times more frequent in boys than in girls and occurs most commonly in children 7 to 11 years of age.
Quite often an avulsion injury involves only a single tooth, which is mostly the central incisor (front tooth) of the upper jaw in both the primary (milk teeth) and the permanent sets. Avulsion, however, should not be mistaken for the exfoliation process in children where milk teeth fall off to make place for the permanent teeth or for
periodontitis in adult where in extreme cases as a result of bne loss, teeth fall out due to loss of support.
Immediate action
Teeth replanted within 30 minutes after the avulsion showed better retention than those replanted more than 2 hours after the injury. If the avulsion has occurred in a clean environment, the parent can replace it in the socket immediately and hold it in place with light finger pressure while the patient is brought to the dental office. If the tooth is dirty, an attempt should be made to clean it, but it is very important to preserve any remnants of the supporting tissues that are still attached to the root.
The best way to clean the tooth is by gently washing it with milk; tap water and chemical agents are not recommended. The tooth must be kept moist during the trip to the dental office and could milk or the patient’s own saliva are the best storage media. A sterile cotton pellet may be placed over the socket and the patient is asked to bite with to control bleeding if any.
At the dental office
The dentist examines the socket and once he confirms that there is no fracture of soft tissue injury and the tooth is intact, he replants the tooth immediately. If  he parent has already replanted it like mentioned before, he proceeds with stabilizing the tooth with a splint wherein supports of the neighboring teeth are taken to immobilize it. Stabilization for replanted teeth is required for seven to 14 days. The patient is advised not to bite directly on the replanted tooth for three to seven weeks after the injury and gradually to begin using it normally.
All replanted permanent teeth have to undergo root canal treatment, which is begun two to three weeks after the injury and before the splint is removed. The dentist will decide the treatment agenda depending on the age, amount of root formation and presence of adjacent un-erupted teeth in the patient. Just like you would put back a cap that has fallen off your head, with a little knowledge and presence of mind, you can put back your tooth and smile!

Dental care during pregnancy.A few important facts to know.

PREGNANT women when struck by toothache are quite often in a dilemma. There is apprehension about undergoing dental treatment in this phase which is justified arguably. The urgency in getting rid of the unbearable dental pain is weighed against the gravity of the possible consequences. Anxiety being the main ingredient, the significance of following few specific instructions while at the dental care office cannot be overemphasized.
Guidelines to be followed at the dental care office during pregnancy
1. The second trimester is the safest time to perform dental treatment. All elective dental care is deferred; the non deferrable treatment (caries control) is completed during the second trimester
2. Many pregnant women get gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy) or pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure and protein in the urine). Its always better to get sugar levels tested and blood pressure checked before undergoing dental treatment even in the second trimester.
3. Long, stressful appointments and periodontal surgical procedures should be avoided. the appointments should be short and the patient allowed to change positions frequently. A fully reclined position should be avoided as it causes pressure on the inferiorvenacava and aorta which in turn may result in low blood pressure, syncope and loss of consciousness.
4. Radiography are contra indicated in all but emergency situations. When taken, lead shielding is mandatory.
5. Other precautions relate to the potential toxic or teratogenic effects of therapy on the fetus. Ideally, no medications should be prescribed unless the situation is an emergency. The patient’s obstetrician should be consulted as to whether a drug could cross the placenta or cause fetal respiratory depression.
