Teeth mobility is most common as age advances and if not treated early the teeth may fall of its own. To prevent the teeth from falling due to teeth mobility there are various ways such as to remove the causative factor. Most common causative factor is infection in the gums and/or abnormal direction of eating force. Getting regular cleaning of your teeth from professional dentist will prevent infection in the gums.
The main function of teeth is grinding your food. Following grinding as in grinding machines the surfaces get worn out and become smooth and the surfaces require roughening to continue efficient grinding. In our teeth also the surfaces become smooth and have to be reshaped to continue the efficient grinding. Sometimes in extreme cases of hard grinding substances like pan, supari and similar items or habit of grinding the teeth especially at night or hyperacidity also results in wearing and smoothening of the teeth surfaces. Once the teeth are reshaped the process of grinding and its efficiency is restored. If this process is neglected the result would be abnormal direction of eating forces resulting in teeth mobility.
Getting regular cleaning of your teeth from a professional dentist will prevent infection in the gums. A six-monthly regular dental check-up, cleaning, reshaping the teeth and treating hyperacidity if present; is highly recommended if the mobility of teeth has to be reduced or prevented. If the teeth mobility is increased it has to be treated by one or more of processes like splinting the teeth, reshaping the teeth, bone grafting, periodontal implants. The results are good and the life of teeth is increased.
Gums/Gingiva are soft tissues covering the root surfaces of the teeth and alveolar processes of the jaws. Gums protect the teeth and the underlying bone against infection. It forms a tight seal against the teeth and the jaw bone. Good oral hygiene helps maintain gums in a healthy state. Poor oral hygiene leads to gum disease like gingivitis and periodontitis.
Gingivitis is the infection or inflammation of the gums and Periodontitis is the infection or inflammation of the gums along with underlying bone, periodontal ligament.
Gingivitis or Periodontitis may lead to progressive destruction resulting from various micro-organisms and host immune response against pathogens. Various risk factors like environmental factors, genetic factors aggravate the disease. Poor oral hygiene leads to accumulation of plaque. Painful and swollen gums, redness in gums, bleeding from gums, pocket formation, recession, bone loss, mobility are clinical signs and symptoms of gum disease. Did you know that Gum disease is the leading cause for tooth loss. At Royal Dental Clinics, we have a gold standard of hygiene treatments as we know just how important gum health is. Our Periodontist not just assists you with the health of your gums, but also enables prevention of gum diseases. This is because your gums are the foundation to your smile.
If the gum disease is left untreated tooth loss, bone loss occurs. Due to bone loss future replacement of teeth also becomes questionable as bone loss causes implant placement difficult. If bridge is planned the tooth from which we take support is compromised in periodontal disease. Gum disease has its ill-effects on the remaining teeth as well. The infection spreads to remaining teeth as well thereby making replacement by artificial teeth difficult.
