General Oral Health Care Advice

Quit smoking

quite smoking

Smoking is bad not just for your teeth but for your overall health. Dr. Renu Dental Clinic specializes in quitting smoking counselling to help you get healthier today. There is no better day than today to quit smoking!

How smoking affects your teeth

  • The effect of smoking on your teeth is right at the sharp end. Many studies have shown that smoking and using tobacco products have a detrimental effect on your teeth and gums. The problem is caused by the fact that tobacco affects the gum tissue cells, making smokers more susceptible to getting infections in the form of gum and periodontal diseases.
  • Here’s what else it does: bad breath, stained teeth, jawbone loss, shrinking gums, mouth sores, decreased senses of taste and smell, poor healing of mouth sores, and a hairy tongue.

The risks of smoking

  • Smoking and tobacco chewing are the most common causes of mouth cancer. Thousands of people die every year due to mouth cancer. The main culprit is smoking.
  • As your preferred dentist, it’s our duty to tell you the risks of smoking and to help you learn how to quit smoking by giving you information and support. By quitting smoking and stopping tobacco products, your preventative care will benefit you more, and you will see good changes in your mouth. It is important for you to consult your dentist regularly for check-ups so our best dentist can help you maintain good preventative care and you will be encouraged.

Dental care in Pregnancy

Dental care is very important for pregnant women. Pregnancy hormone changes can affect your dental and oral health. Many pregnant women notice that their gums are red, inflamed, and sometimes bleed when they brush their teeth. We recommend that every pregnant woman consult with a dentist during her prenatal and postnatal periods!

IMPORTANCE OF DENTAL CARE IN pregnancy

  • During pregnancy, there are many changes in your body, including hormonal changes. It is more important to take care of your oral health. Many women notice inflamed and red gums that might bleed sometimes.
  • These red and inflamed gums, known as "pregnancy gingivitis," can start in the second month of pregnancy. In normal pregnancy, progesterone can be 10 times higher than normal. More plaque is formed due to this, so women are more susceptible to periodontal disease in pregnancy.
  • Some women in pregnancy also experience growth on their gums known as "pregnancy granuloma". They are usually found on the upper gums, and although they are not dangerous, they cause discomfort.
  • Tooth erosions are also more common in pregnancy due to constant acid exposure due to morning sickness. This can be easily overcome by drinking more water and chewing sugarless candies to secrete more saliva.
  • Consult with Dr. Renu Chaudhary, the best dentist near you, and ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy during pregnancy.

Jaw Problems

You deserve to have a healthy mouth and bite that do not cause pain or interfere with your life. With the help of our team, you can get your jaw back to a state of equilibrium and live a more pain-free life. We welcome you to come in and find out how we can help reduce your discomfort.

HAVING jaw problems or TMJ disorder

  • The way our teeth meet while closing the jaw is known as our "bite".
  • If your teeth don’t fit together properly, this is known as malocclusion, or "bad bite". This malocclusion might cause problems with chewing and pain in the jaw.
  • This misalignment, which is usually called TMJ disorder, might cause some people to grind their teeth at night. This can result in TMJ pain, headaches, and discomfort when biting or chewing, as well as migraines. 

TMJ PAIN We’re here to help

  • Dr. Renu Chaudhary is well experienced in diagnosing and treating jaw-related conditions and has treated many cases. There are many treatment options, including bite correctors and orthodontic treatment. She occasionally suggested replacing missing teeth to correct the bite.
  • Hence, early treatment has better results; hence, we advise not to wait. It is a treatable condition. The longer you wait, the more time and cost are required to treat this.

Bruxism

It’s time for you to get some well-deserved rest. Stop grinding your teeth so hard and start using a protective night guard to avoid bruxism.

Bruxism, or “night grinding” or “clenching”, is a common condition, mostly associated with anxiety, stress, and sleep deprivation. It has many devastating effects on your oral health.

Get a customized night guard from a dentist who specializes in sleep medicine. Choose from our different types of night guards for different tooth grinding patterns.

The negative effects of bruxism on your oral health

  • Tooth sensitivity due to tooth erosion
  • TMJ pain due to forceful movements
  • Bone loss at the jaw due to abnormal movement
  • Pain while chewing due to muscle fatigue
  • Headache due to improper sleep and tension headache

When TO CONSULT A DENTIST FOR Bruxism or teeth grinding

Since bruxism worsens with passing time, treatment should start immediately as soon as the condition is diagnosed.

  • Once the underlying cause, such as stress or anxiety, has been identified, treat it.
  • Nightguard can be useful in milder cases.
  • Full mouth reconstruction is required in severe cases.
  • If you notice that your child is grinding his or her teeth, consult with our best dentist in Jaipur to avoid tooth erosion and other problems as mentioned above.
