Dental caries or cavities

Dental caries also known as tooth decay or a cavity, this can be caused by an bacterial infection, that causes demineralization and destruction of the hard tissues (enamel, dentin and cementum), usually by production of acid by bacterial fermentation of the food debris accumulated on the tooth surface. If demineralization exceeds saliva and other remineralization factors such as from calcium and fluoridated toothpastes, these once hard tissues progressively break down, producing dental caries (cavities, holes in the teeth).

Two main factors causes tooth decay, bacteria and a diet high in sugar and starch. There are over 500 different types of bacteria that are normally present in the mouth. These bacteria combine with food and saliva to form a sticky substance called plaque that attaches to teeth. Foods rich in starches add to the stickiness of the plaque, which begins to get hard if it remains on the teeth after a couple of days and turns into tartar or calculus. Bacteria in the plaque convert sugar into acid that dissolves the tooth structure causing holes, or cavities. Because of these two contributing factors, dental caries have been described as a “dietobacterial” disease.

The parts of teeth that are most vulnerable to tooth decay are areas where plaque can accumulate most easily. Plaque tends to settle into the pits and fissures in the tops of teeth, into the areas in between the teeth, and next to the gum line. Where there is plaque, there are bacteria and acid, and eventually destruction of the tooth surface. The cavity starts in the outer layer of the tooth (enamel) and as it gets deeper, penetrates into the softer inner layer of the tooth (dentin.) Typically, it isn't until the decay reaches the dentin that a person will start to notice signs and symptoms of the cavity

Preventing from dental cavities
Regular dental check up with your near by dentist.

Brushing twice a day.
Dentist Randolph nj

Wash your mouth immediately after sweets and chocolates are taken.

Keep your mouth wet drink lot of water.

Saliva helps prevent plaque from attaching to teeth and helps wash away and digest food particles. A low salivary flow or dry mouth leaves the teeth more vulnerable to tooth decay. Genetic factors that affect tooth decay are tooth size and shape, thickness of enamel, tooth position, tooth eruption time and sequence, and the bite.

invisalign - clear braces

invisalign clear braces

Invisalign clear braces are the newest way to correct many dental problems that used to require years of orthodontic work with metal bonded to your teeth. Invisalign clear braces use clear plastic aligners to straighten and space teeth correctly. Invisalign clear braces can correct:

In the past, the only way to straighten your smile was to have traditional metal braces with brackets and wires bonded to your teeth. This would limit the food you ate, cause soreness and irritation, not to mention self-consciousness or embarrassment about they way you looked and limit your ability to keep your teeth clean.
Invisalign clear braces solve almost all of the same problems traditional braces do, but they are clear, so nobody notices them, removable so that you can eat what you want, and brush and floss, and be very effective.
In fact, most adjustments made with Invisalign clear braces are complete in just about one year. Many teenagers and adults are turning to Invisalign clear braces to provide them with the smile they want, without some of the drawbacks of traditional braces.
The process of achieving a beautiful straight smile begins with an initial consultation with Dr. Bagga. During your initial consultation, Dr. Bagga will discover with you the results you want and the expectations you have.
Dr. Bagga will evaluate your teeth and determine if Invisalign clear braces will be able to provide you with the results you want. If Invisalign clear braces are the best solution, then Dr. Bagga will take an impression of all your teeth as well as photos and x-rays of what your teeth look like before Invisalign clear braces.
This impression is then scanned with computer technology to create a very precise 3D image of your teeth. Computer software is then used to depict how the teeth need to be moved in order to achieve the best results. Finally, a series of aligners are created to gradually shift your teeth so that they are straight and evenly spaced.
Your custom-made Invisalign clear braces aligners are worn for about two weeks before switching to the next aligner in the series. Through constant, gradual change, your teeth will shift and move into place so that you have the straight smile you’ve always wanted.

Advantages of invisalign
Effectively treats a wide variety of cases, including crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite.
Straightens your teeth.
Allows you to eat whatever foods you enjoy.
Lets you remove the device when you want.
Lets you enjoy virtually invisible teeth-straightening.
Allows you to brush and floss your teeth normally for better periodontal health.
Consists of smooth, comfortable plastic instead of sharp metal that is more likely to irritate your cheeks and gums.

Disadvantages of Regular braces  
With regular braces, you may experience some or all of the following: pain, discomfort, mouth sores or injuries caused by the brace wires, tooth decay (from inadequate brushing and flossing), plaque buildup, tooth discoloration, tooth/bracket breakage, or difficulty eating. As if that weren’t enough, there are also the personal sacrifices — popcorn, chips, bagels, hard-crusted bread, pizza crust, pretzel, nuts, certain candies…plus apples, carrots, corn on the cob, and more

Brushing your teeth

Brushing your teeth, thoroughly, twice a day and many of us have been begged by our dental hygienists to actually floss. Cosmetic dentist and Huffington Post blogger, Dr. Thomas P. Connelly, adds that a morning tongue scraping is a "huge" part of overall oral health. What else can you do and what should you be on the lookout for? Check out our slideshow of 10 of the most common dental problems and (when possible) how to avoid them.

Connelly says that gum disease is typically caused by three factors: bad oral hygiene, smoking and genetic susceptibility. According to the NIH, gum disease sufferers don't often show symptoms until their 30's and 40's, though teenagers can often have gingivitis, which is the milder form of the disease. 

Periodontitis is the more severe form of gum disease and, according to the Mayo Clinic, can put you at greater risk for heart attack or stroke. How? Bacteria can be inhaled or enter your blood through the gums, eventually affecting your heart and lungs.

Symptoms of gum disease include things like constant bad breath, swollen or bleeding gums and loose or sensitive teeth. The NIH reports that treatment often includes a deep cleaning or scraping tartar from below the gum line, prescription antibiotics, mouthwashes or gels and surgery. Diligent at-home care is essential thereafter.

Ten common dental problems

In a recent reaserch clearly says that the main source of bad breath is the tongue. Why? Layers of bacteria can get embedded on it, resulting in foul-smelling Volitlie Sulfer Compounds. 

Possible reasons for bad-breath causes like dry mouth (which occurs naturally during sleep, but can also be caused by a glandular condition), as well as certain foods, like onions or garlic. 

Post nasal drip, which causes bad breath because bacteria are attracted to the resulting mucus and phlegm. 

Daily tongue scraping and brushing your teeth (morning and evening) twice a day can control your bad breath.
