Oral Prophylaxis or Dental Prophylaxis is preventive care of teeth and surrounding structures. There are two aspects of prevention, at-home care, and in-office care.

Generally, hygiene and care do tackle prevention in their own way and the emphasis on dental education has definitely influenced society. Conditions like Pyorrhoea and necrotising dental abscess are declining thanks to periodic dental checkups. Dentists in India are able to keep a check on severe debilitating dental disorders by controlling infections and preventing such incidences with prophylactic care.

Diabetic, epileptic, and Hypertensive individuals are advised to seek periodontal help once in a quarter. Individuals with special needs do require periodic dental evaluation.

Is there any special home care after scaling & polishing?

After scaling & polishing teeth tend to be slightly sensitive which usually subsides gradually. Avoiding extremely hot & cold food and colouring agents is recommended. Cola’s, smoking and alcohol if avoided is always better.

Are there any side effects of flap surgery?

Periodontists in India, utilise clinical diagnosis and radiographic evidence to prescribe flap surgery in patients with deep pockets, bone defects and periodontal disorders. Hence flap surgery isn’t for all and if prescribed then the periodontist will optimise the surgery in order to achieve maximum results with minimal damage.

How to Brush Your Teeth :

Kids : For kids under the age 5 an assistance from parents is recommended since fine motor functions are yet developing. However, a circular motion is easy for kids to maneuver. This motion can later be modified easily to adult brushing technique. Change of a tooth brush once is 45 days is a must. Avoid using fluoridated toothpaste under the age group 0 to 6years. Motorised Tooth Brush is also a welcome especially in kids with a special need.

Adults: At ALUX DENTAL our expert panel of Dentist in India recommend the following brushing technique. Always start from the right upper back most tooth. Place the toothbrush at an angle so that the bristles gently rest under the gum and sweep down. 20 sweeps down at each area ( any toothbrush, covers three teeth at a time ) then move to the other three teeth. Complete cleaning upper teeth then start from lower right back most teeth, placing brush again at an angle resting the bristles under the gum, now sweep upwards from the gum. 20 sweeps upward for lower teeth moving from one to another area. After cleaning lower and upper teeth hold the brush vertically and clean upper teeth on the backside (lingual side) downward 5 sweeps between two teeth till you complete all upper teeth. For lower teeth on the backside (towards tongue) 5 sweeps upwards between two teeth till you complete all. Then finally scrub chewing surface of the teeth a couple of times to complete brushing.

An important point to note :

  • Brushing should not last more than 3 to 5 minutes
  • Scrubbing is never recommended either horizontal or vertical (just sweep motion)
  • Do not scrub on chewing surface more than a couple of times as the bristles flare and tooth brush becomes ineffective
  • Change a tooth brush once in 45 days
  • Brushing only cleans your teeth… NEVER MAKES IT WHITER, SO NO AGGRESSIVE BRUSHING!

How to Floss Your Teeth :

It is very important to incorporate flossing as good oral hygiene measure. Flossing ensures all your tooth surfaces are totally cleaned. Remember brushing always leaves 40% of your teeth uncleaned as brush cannot clean in between teeth. Floss or interdental aids like Waterpik can only clean in between teeth. Flossing Technique : Our Periodontist in India recommend use of a mini-floss which is very easy to use unlike conventional floss. Holding the handle of mini-floss gently slide the waxed thread in between teeth gliding along the surface of the tooth. Repeat the same along the surface of other tooth. A floss cleans two surfaces of two teeth when introduced between. Always gently pass it all the way up till the gums. Novel interdental aids like Waterpik Floss are way to easy means of maintaining oral hygiene especially if you are wearing braces. Dental Health and Your Diet : Oral health is a window to your actual health. Maintaining a good oral hygiene is not only healthy but also a social norm. What you eat also has a significant impact on your teeth and overall dental health.

Do’s & Don’t

  • Avoid too much snacking
  • Avoid extremely hot and cold stuff
  • High acidic food not only affects your teeth but also harmful for your body
  • Avoid sticky food in the night

One can, not only visualise the anatomy in all three dimensions but also plan, simulate and modulate surgeries based on the three dimensional visualisation.

Does a CBCT help in Dental Implant Surgery?

Definitely, a three dimensional view of one’s existing bone & anatomical structure help visualise, plan and pre-empt surgeries in a more precise and optimised manner. Dental Implant Surgery has become very successful as an oral surgeon can plan the procedure well with the help of a CBCT.

If a child’s upper anterior teeth are decayed with lower teeth not affected then it’s a classic Nursing Bottle Caries. Our Pediatric Dentist will be able to offer comprehensive solution to this dynamic condition through restorations, prophylaxis and dental education.

My child’s molar teeth are repeatedly getting decayed can I prevent it?

Yes, helping your child with brushing twice daily and getting him a dental appointment with a Pediatric Dentist will be a great help. Deeper grooves on molar teeth are more susceptible to decay as they kind of lodge food particles which attract bacteria. Filling such deeper groves with a pit & fissure sealant can prevent decay.

How often one needs to visit a Pediatric Dentist in Bangalore or Pediatric Dentist in Hyderabad to get their child’s teeth inspected?

Since growth is so dynamic getting a child reviewed by a Pediatric Dentist once in three to six months is recommended.

Any irregularity can be totally prevented if periodically inspected.
