Fear of dentistry or dental phobia or odontophobia is one of the common fears around the world, which causes many people to avoid going to the dentist just because of this fear and end up facing much more complicated and painful problems. Sedation or dentistry in sleep is one of the ways to overcome fear during dentistry.

What is dentistry in sleep or sedation in teething?

In general, sedation in dentistry is a method of controlling stress and unwanted reactions using medication. Sedation (sedation) has made many people who were deprived of receiving normal dental services in the not-so-distant days, able to overcome the nightmare of their fear or reactions.

This fear can have different degrees from mild to very severe. Sometimes the intensity of this fear increases to such an extent that the patient cannot be treated under normal conditions, and the discussion of complete anesthesia in dentistry is raised.

In the statistics presented in England in 2009, about 36% of the patients have experienced a moderate degree of this fear, and 12% of these people are so afraid of dentistry that under no circumstances, even in the presence of severe dental pain. They are not even willing to go to the dentist.

Why we are afraid of dentistry and what does sedation help?

Fear of dentistry has different aspects. Different patients are sometimes afraid of the whole of dental treatments and in some cases they are only afraid of a specific thing such as anesthesia injection, the sound of teeth being milled and shaved, surgical instruments and pain during work and similar things.

An unpleasant dental experience in childhood due to the unavailability of pediatric dentistry or a painful treatment in adulthood such as wisdom tooth surgery are among the main causes of dental fear.

There are some people who, although they have not had a painful dental experience, but have heard so many scary things about dentistry that they are afraid of doing these treatments.

Fear of anesthesia injection is one of the most common fears of patients. In this case, it should be said that dental injections, contrary to the scary appearance of its metal syringes, are not as painful as injections in other parts of the body. Dental needles are much finer and thinner than normal injection needles.

This simple comparison can reduce your fear significantly. At the same time, remember that the result of this few seconds of injection can be a pain-free and stress-free treatment.

Dentistry in sleep

In sleep dentistry, by complying with the necessary standards and using advanced equipment in a 24-hour dental clinic, along with the prescription of drugs, it is possible to provide suitable conditions for performing dental services such as implants, tooth extraction, etc. for the patient under sedation.

Interesting points in dentistry in sleep

An interesting point is that adults’ fear of children is much stronger and deeper. A child’s fear can be moderated and diverted, but this is almost impossible for adult patients.

A patient dentist who has experience working with children can usually reduce the child’s fear and provide the necessary treatment by using certain tricks.

Fear of dentistry, especially when it is more than mild, can lead to serious problems for the patient and the dentist.

Many people are not willing to go to the dentist and fix their dental and gum problems because of this fear.

As a result, these problems progress day by day and cause severe damage to the teeth and gums.

On the other hand, usually in these conditions, the destruction of the teeth is to such an extent that their restoration and reconstruction will be a difficult and expensive task, and even after the treatment, one cannot have enough confidence about the success of the treatment and the durability of the tooth.

In the case of adults, there are various methods to reduce fear, one of which is sedation in dentistry. Meanwhile, the dentist plays a very important role in reducing the patient’s anxiety.

By explaining the treatment procedures to frightened patients, the dentist can reduce their fear of equipment and treatment procedures. Patients who are afraid of dentistry can ask the dentist to explain the treatment steps and the equipment used before starting the treatment. Of course, complete and deep anesthesia in dentistry is the last step.

Another name is removable prosthesis based on overdenture implant. A removable prosthesis relies on a prosthetic implant that is fully or partially supported by the implant and soft tissue. The amount of support depends on the number of implants placed. The amount and quality of residual bone, maxillary arch, front teeth, bruxism and patient habits, diameter, length and width of implants used, patient medical history and treatment costs are among the factors that affect the treatment plan and the number of implants used. Lays. The benefits of implant-based removable prosthesis treatment are well established. Implants maintain the height of the jawbone, improve chewing efficiency, increase the patient’s self-confidence, and support the patient psychologically. Implants can also be placed in very symmetrical positions so that in the long run, other implants can be placed, which allows the creation of a prosthesis based on a fixed implant.

The important point in this treatment plan is that the implant-based removable prosthesis is always considered as a temporary treatment and the final treatment includes a fixed implant-based prosthesis that is done by placing an implant in each jaw. The number of implants depends on the patient’s factors and the advice of a prosthetist and surgeon.

Differences between artificial teeth and removable implants based on implants

Although removable dentures are one of the oldest ways to replace missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw and are relatively simple to make, the limitations of using removable dentures have led patients to continue to use their teeth. Moving artificially get tired.

One of the main problems for people who use removable dentures is the inability to bite or chew some hard food. Dentures usually break with the slightest pressure or impact or fall and are no longer in place.

For most people, it is inconvenient to care for and clean removable dentures and put them back in the mouth. And they are unhappy with doing this every day. For these people, dental implants are a very good solution. Most are satisfied with the very long life of dental implants and beautiful appearance.


 To place a denture on an implant base, the patient’s jawbone must be examined by a prosthetist to determine how many jaws can be implanted into the implant base. The minimum number of implants required to place a complete denture is 2 implant bases, and if the dentist determines that the jaw is capable of implanting more implant bases, he will use the standard number of 4 implant bases and the overdenture method.

After the implant bases are implanted, a fixed prosthesis is placed on them so that the fixed artificial teeth are placed on the implanted bases in the jaw. Usually, patients are completely satisfied with the overdenture implant. Using overdenture is no longer difficult for the patient to eat solid foods. In addition, there is no need to remove and place it during the day, and like natural teeth, caring for dental implants requires oral hygiene by brushing, flossing to keep teeth healthy.

Cost of removable implant based prosthesis

 If the patient uses only a removable prosthesis, it will cost less. But if the removable prosthesis is implant-based, because the implant is expensive to treat, it has to pay more. Today, implants are a more expensive treatment because they have more expensive raw materials and tools.

There are many reasons why a person may lose their teeth, from severe tooth decay to serious infections and…. .

When you think of dentures, you probably think of false teeth that are placed in a glass of water at night. Some prostheses are removable because they have to be washed in clean, special solutions, but because of their applications, they have gained a lot of fans.

Here we fully explain the fixed and movable implants, the advantages and features of each of these two models.

Fixed and movable implants

As you know, one of the alternatives to missing teeth is the use of dental implants. The implant is placed in the empty space between the teeth and does not cause any problems for the adjacent teeth.

Natural teeth are made up of two parts, the crown and the root. The crown is the visible part of the tooth through which we can eat and talk, but the root of the tooth is the part that connects the tooth to the jawbone. When a person loses a tooth, dentists insert a titanium or zirconium screw into the tooth that acts as a natural root, and fixed and removable dentures are used to replace the crown.

There are two common types of dentures known as fixed and removable dentures. To use either of these two types of prostheses, you need to get complete and sufficient information and decide by comparing them and the differences in their performance and function, and most importantly with the diagnosis of a dentist.

What is a removable implant?

For many people, the question may be, what are the reasons for using dentures or dental implants? The most important reason that patients go to medical clinics to fill their gaps is that the lack of regular teeth and gaps in the mouth affects the beauty of the face and many patients lose their self-confidence. They lose and try to hide their teeth.

Tooth decay creates a feeling of premature aging in people, which can have an adverse effect on their mood. Implant-based removable dentures are an alternative to missing teeth, and people can remove them from their mouths when they do not need them, such as at bedtime, and rinse them with a special solution. .

What is a Fixed Implant?

Fixed implant tooth implantation is one of the best alternatives for missing teeth, which largely solves the problems of dentures for patients. Fixed implants have bases that are located in the jawbone that act as the root of the tooth. After a while, the base of the fixed implant welds well into the jawbone and between the gums, and finally the crown of the fixed implant, also called the prosthesis, is placed on it.

The difference between fixed and movable implants

To compare two fixed and movable implants, it can be said that a fixed implant is better in terms of strength. Fixed prostheses can prevent these problems when a person’s teeth are lost, the lips and cheeks are sagging, and the jaw bones are weakened.

To learn more about the differences between fixed and removable implants, let’s look at the benefits and features of each:

Fixed implant benefits

Appearance of teeth: Naturally filling the gaps of missing teeth, in the most natural way possible, has a great impact on the beauty and shape of the face, especially your smile.

Feeling comfortable using the implant: After a short time that has passed since the implant was placed in your tooth, it will get used to it like any natural tooth without any discomfort and will not bother you.

Convenience in speech: Fixed tooth implants do not cause any problems in your speech and do not loosen like dentures and will not move in your mouth.

Ease of chewing food: People who have used dentures are aware of the problems that occur when chewing food. If you use fixed dental implants instead of dentures, you will find that chewing food with implants is no different from your normal teeth.

High strength and durability: If taken care of and observed daily hygiene, implanted teeth are highly durable and maintain their efficiency for several years. Easy hygiene: You can apply the same process of hygiene and care you have for your natural teeth to implanted teeth, such as brushing, flossing, mouth washing (consult a specialist).

In some cases, crooked teeth affect the quality of life. For example, you may not be able to chew food well, so you may have heartburn after eating.

Relatively common problems with crooked teeth include:

Periodontal disease (such as gum infection): Because it is difficult to clean crooked and crooked teeth side by side, plaque and bacteria are more likely to accumulate and cause inflammation and infection.

Difficulty chewing: Sometimes crooked teeth make it difficult for you to chew food properly.

Severe wear: Teeth crooked can cause some tooth surfaces or some teeth to be over-pressed and worn. The jaw muscles and jaw joint are also pressed and over time, jaw pain and jaw joint problems develop.

Problem with pronunciation: Some letters are not pronounced correctly if the teeth are crooked and speech is affected.

Self-confidence: The crookedness of the teeth, especially the front teeth, affects the beauty of the face and the self-confidence of people.

In what cases can laminate be used to correct teeth?

Laminate helps to beautify crooked teeth. In the following cases, laminate can be used to correct the shape of the tooth:

Slight inclination or misalignment of the tooth

Short distance between teeth

Teeth rotation or deformity

What is Immediate Orthodontics?

Laminating teeth to correct crookedness and misalignment is called instant orthodontics. But you should know that in fact, laminate does not do orthodontic work, but only changes the appearance of the tooth to make it look more beautiful. If the crooked teeth have caused a functional or health problem, orthodontics is the permanent solution to these problems, not laminating.

What is the laminate of rabbit teeth and crooked?

First, the tooth should be shaved slightly so that with the addition of laminate, it does not become bulky and its dimensions do not become larger than other teeth. After removing a thin layer of enamel, it is molded and based on it, a laminate shell is made in the laboratory. Then come back to have the laminate stuck to your teeth.

Disadvantages of rabbit and laminated tooth laminate

Laminating rabbit teeth does not solve your orthodontic problem and does not change the position of the tooth. In fact, the teeth under the laminate remain crooked and untidy. Therefore, if your goal is to solve the problem of dental function, it is better to consult an orthodontist.

Advantages of laminated and crooked laminate teeth

This is done immediately and in just one or two sessions while orthodontic treatment is long and time consuming.

In addition to showing the teeth smooth and tidy, laminating also corrects other problems such as discoloration and stains, deformed edges, unevenness, disproportionate dimensions or the distance between the teeth, and if the lip is full or broken, it covers.

What are the causes of tooth decay?

Large two middle front teeth due to heredity and genetics

The small size of the surrounding teeth makes the front teeth look large.

Short gums around the middle front teeth or too long gums on the side front teeth (adjacent to the rabbit teeth) that make the front teeth look large.

What are the methods of correction of rabbit teeth?

Many people love big teeth in the front of the mouth because it makes the face look younger and the smile is more attractive and focused on the center of the mouth. Especially if someone has small teeth, he probably likes them more than big teeth. However, if the size of the front teeth is not interesting to you and you are not satisfied with this situation, you can correct it.

Rabbit tooth correction methods

Correction of rabbit teeth depends on the size of the teeth:

If the reason for the rabbit teeth is the size of the front teeth, the solution is to cut and shape these teeth.

If the rabbit tooth is due to the smaller adjacent teeth, this problem can be solved by laminating. These teeth can be enlarged with laminate to match their ratio to the front teeth. It is often recommended that all four front teeth be trimmed and shaped to provide ample space to change and adjust the size of the teeth.

If the gums are caused by teeth, the gums should be removed by contouring the gums (cosmetic gum surgery).

What are the complications of rabbit teeth?

If the cause of rabbit teeth is really the size of the front teeth, sometimes it can cause other problems besides beauty. If the front teeth are too large, they may not have proper contact with the rest of the teeth and as a result the jaw pressure on the teeth may not be properly distributed. On the other hand, the jaw may not close well or the lower jaw may lag behind and the teeth may not be paired due to the pulling of the upper jaw. This disorder, which occurs in the bite (contact of the teeth together), leads to problems such as the following:

Severe wear of some tooth surfaces

Cracks or fillings of teeth

Jaw joint disorder resulting in jaw pain or headache

Decreased facial balance

What are the advantages and disadvantages of laminating rabbit teeth with laminate?

Shaping and cutting large teeth may change the way teeth come into contact with each other and upset the balance between them.

By changing the dimensions of the two front teeth, the fit of these teeth may be disturbed and their ratio of width to height may increase.

Cutting the tooth may cause the vulnerable layers inside the tooth to come out. This condition leads to tooth sensitivity and increases the likelihood of cracking as well as tooth decay. With the addition of laminate shell to the tooth, this problem is partially corrected and the tooth is strengthened and covered and the possibility of its sensitivity is reduced.

Caring for children who are teething

 Toothache in children is most often caused by teething, which usually occurs between the ages of four and seven months. Symptoms such as fever, skin rash, diarrhea, and bruising are not uncommon when teething. Contact a pediatrician if symptoms of persistence are severe or recur.

Toothache pain can often be relieved by gently rubbing the gums with a clean finger, the back of a baby spoon, or a damp gauze pad. Teeth or nipples may also be helpful in relieving pain.

Do not use benzocaine-containing oral disinfectant gels for children under two years of age unless prescribed by a pediatrician. Methemoglobinemia is a lack of oxygen in the blood that can be caused by benzocaine, which can be fatal for young children.

After diagnosing the causes of severe toothache with the help of dental examination and imaging, the following methods can be used to relieve pain.

 Taking over-the-counter medications

 If toothache starts suddenly for no apparent reason and does not go away within an hour or more, consider taking painkillers before going to the dentist. Anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), naproxen (Alio) or aspirin are probably the best medications for toothache with a lot of inflammation – which is more common with gingivitis or mild trauma to the mouth. Painkillers may be suitable for teeth that do not have much swelling, such as nerve irritation or tooth decay. The most common over-the-counter pain reliever is acetaminophen (Tylenol, Paracetamol).

Do not apply aspirin or painkillers directly to the gums as they may burn or irritate the gum tissue. Also, if you are allergic to the substances in these drugs, this may cause allergic reactions.

Acetaminophen, rather than aspirin or ibuprofen, is a better option for infants and children with toothache.

Anti-inflammatory drugs and painkillers should always be short-term options for pain control. Taking too much of these drugs at the same time or taking them for long periods of time can increase the risk of stomach, kidney and liver problems. See a doctor as soon as possible before the problem gets worse and the pain gets worse.

Apply benzocaine gels, creams, or ointments, a mild anesthetic that causes local anesthesia, to the affected area. Apply these products directly to the sore tooth and surrounding gum tissue to provide temporary relief – usually for several hours. Although the drug is absorbed through the tissue, try not to swallow large amounts as it can cause sore throat and nausea. Breathing through the mouth for a few minutes helps reduce the feeling of the need to swallow.

Be very careful when using products containing benzocaine, as this substance can cause a rare complication called methemoglobin, which reduces the amount of oxygen in the blood.

Do not use benzocaine for children under 2 years of age without medical supervision.

Over-the-counter products containing benzocaine should only be taken for a short time before seeing a dentist.

Use ice packs

If the toothache is due to oral-to-tooth trauma, identify the area where the most pain and inflammation is felt and apply an ice pack to the outside of the lip. Using ice packs helps reduce swelling because it reduces blood flow by narrowing blood vessels. It will also numb the pain for a while. Cold compresses can be made with ice cubes, crushed ice, frozen gel packs or small bags of vegetables.

Always wrap a frozen item in a thin layer of cloth before placing it on the skin – this will prevent skin irritation and ice burns.

Apply a cold compress for about 15 minutes 3 to 4 times a day until the inflammation / toothache subsides or goes away.

Severe trauma to the mouth and teeth should be examined by a dental professional, so make an appointment as soon as possible – Be sure to tell your dentist that you have an emergency so you can see a doctor as soon as possible.

Perhaps the easiest and cheapest way to deal with some types of toothache is to rinse your mouth with lukewarm salt water. Circulating water in and around the painful area can disinfect that area and relieve pain. It also helps to remove any food debris that gets stuck between the teeth and causes tooth decay. Salt water removes some of the fluid from the gums that causes it to swell.


A severe pain and maybe an uninvited guest called Toothache! Of course, you can control the pain very quickly.

Severe toothache is one of the most commonly experienced pain disorders. In this case, the person    cannot eat and talk and tries to relieve his toothache in any way.

In these cases, it is definitely the most logical way to see a dentist. Of course, there are home remedies for relieving toothache; Follow the health page of Delta Magazine.

Natural painkillers for toothache

You may also wake up in the middle of the night with a toothache; what to do in these cases? Is there a way to relieve toothache or should we stay up until morning and suffer?


If you mix ginger powder with water, it is very effective in relieving toothache.

To do this, dip a cotton ball in the paste, squeeze it to remove excess water, and then place it on your aching tooth. It works in such a way that ginger stimulates the skin of that area and draws blood to the skin and reduces inflammation.

If ginger powder is not available, you can put a piece of this dried spice on the swollen tooth to make it less effective.


One of the most effective ways to reduce toothache is to use garlic.

Put a clove of garlic on your tooth and chew it to reduce toothache. Garlic also makes teeth stronger and stronger.


Clove is undoubtedly the most common natural substance for relieving toothache.

In fact, cloves are used in the composition of dental eugenol. Eugenol fights bacteria, reduces tooth sensitivity and treats toothache.

For the immediate effect of cloves, it is enough to put it on the painful tooth and press the upper and lower jaw to stay on the tooth. You can also pour 2-3 drops of the oil on the cotton and put it on the teeth but do not eat it. Such oils are very strong and cannot be taken orally. It is best to consult a specialist such as a pharmacist before consuming cloves and if you have a specific illness or allergy.


Lemon helps to reduce toothache. In addition, this fruit prevents tooth decay, loose teeth and bleeding gums.

Red pepper

Red pepper gives great taste to some foods and leaves a unique taste in the mouth. But being a spice is not the only property of pepper, but one of its amazing properties is relieving toothache.

 Red pigment acts as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory. If you plan to use this plant to relieve pain, mix a little of its powder with water to prepare a firm dough.

Dip a cotton ball in it and squeeze the juice. Put it on a sore tooth and be careful not to touch the gums. This ointment stimulates the position and sends blood to another area, which relieves inflammation and pain. Of course, ginger powder can be mixed with red pepper powder and used for this ointment.

Sesame Seed

Sesame has been used to relieve toothache in China for more than 1,600 years.

Sesame contains compounds that improve pain. The properties of sesame are similar to aspirin and it acts like a painkiller. These seeds are very effective in relieving toothache.

The ointment is very simple to prepare and does not require many ingredients. Put the water pot on the heat to boil and then add the sesame seeds. For each amount of sesame you need twice as much water. For the composition to work better, you have to wait for half of the water to evaporate. Apply the ointment directly on the painful area.


Put a small piece of onion on your tooth and bite it very gently to see its effect in reducing pain and infection.


Another effective way to reduce toothache is to gargle with warm saline in your mouth.

 Dissolve a tablespoon of salt well in a glass of warm water (not hot water) and gargle it a few times in your mouth and pour it out until a glass of salt water is used up. This reduces inflammation and kills harmful bacteria in the mouth and reduces toothache.

Tea bag

The tannins in tea have an anti-inflammatory effect. Putting a wet tea bag on the tooth also reduces toothache.

Also, if your teeth are not sensitive to cold, you can put a tea bag in ice water and then put it on your teeth.


Cinnamon and ginger

Mix cinnamon and ginger with a little honey and peel it to the size of a pea and put it on swollen teeth for 20 minutes. This will both relieve the toothache and dry out the pus.


Clay is one of the natural materials used in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.

 This substance, which comes directly from the ground, is useful for physical problems such as digestive disorders, skin burns and…, Clay is antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-toxic and relieves toothache.

To prepare this ointment, choose a container that is not made of metal or plastic. Pour the clay along with the water. Stir with a wooden spoon to make a soft dough; the medicine is ready; You can apply it on the sore spot like an ointment.

What are dentate ridges on the edge of permanent teeth in children?

If you look closely, you can see that the winning surface of the permanent front teeth in children is serrated. Sometimes parents, when they first notice these toothed bumps on the edge of their child’s teeth, think there is a problem and that these teeth are caused by breaking or grinding.

You should know that the jagged edges of permanent teeth are completely natural. In fact, these indented ridges, called Mamelons, are related to the way permanent teeth grow, and all teeth look like this in the beginning.

In the first growth, the part of the tooth bud of the previous teeth that causes the growth of tooth enamel, is composed of three separate foci that these three foci are connected during the tooth growth process and the teeth that are on the edge of the front teeth. They are actually created due to the merging of these parts.

All teeth grow from something called the lobe, which is deep inside the gums. Different lobes grow together and each forms a different part of the tooth. In the case of front teeth, there are three lobes that together form the front of the tooth. By looking at dental mammals, you can see where these lobes meet and connect. There is a front lobe on the left, one in the middle and one on the right, which form a tooth as it grows and reaches each other.

Why are the edges of the front teeth not serrated in adults?

These ridges are usually seen for a short time and disappear very quickly. Because these teeth are not even and thin, they are quickly eroded and destroyed by chewing food. However, it is interesting to know that in some people these teeth remain for a long time.

In some adults, whose front teeth do not come together and do not make proper contact, mammoths remain. For example, if a person has open bite or overjet and the edges of his upper and lower front teeth do not come in contact with each other, the mammoths of the opposite teeth do not come in contact with each other and are therefore preserved. Adults who have not yet lost their teeth and do not like the appearance of it, can go to the dentist to have a cosmetic treatment (enamel shaping) to smooth it. As we age and wear the edges of the upper and lower teeth on top of each other, the depth of these teeth, which are in the enamel area, decreases and the teeth look smoother. This condition is completely normal on the front teeth and will not harm the person. However, in situations such as the front of the upper jaw or the back of the lower jaw, we will not see wear and smoothness of the edges of the teeth. Some habits in people may cause deep indentations or grooves in the anterior teeth, which deepen over time.

Loosening of permanent teeth is usually a sign of redness for oral problems and should be addressed as soon as possible. There are many different types of oral diseases that can cause loose teeth.

Loose teeth, in addition to the problems they cause you in terms of biting and chewing food due to the misalignment of the teeth, also carry the risk of losing one or more teeth. Loose teeth are not a good sign, but they do not necessarily mean tooth loss. Therefore, if you suffer from this complication, see a professional dentist as soon as possible, because loose teeth can be a sign of more dangerous oral diseases that definitely need special treatment and care.

Causes and causes of permanent tooth loosening

Periodontal diseases

Periodontal disease not only affects your gums, but also the ligaments and bones that support your teeth. Periodontal disease is one of the most common causes of loose and displaced teeth.

Fortunately, periodontal disease can be easily prevented by maintaining good oral hygiene. Therefore, you should not let the severity of the disease reach a point where it causes the tooth to loosen. Maintaining good oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing properly and regularly visiting the dentist twice a year, are the most important points in preventing periodontal disease.

Pregnancy hormones

Elevated levels of the hormones progesterone and estrogen during pregnancy can cause the ligaments and bones around the teeth to become soft and loose, which can cause the teeth to loosen. Fortunately, this complication is usually temporary and will not lead to tooth loss unless there are other illnesses and complications, such as periodontal disease. However, do not take any risks and if you see the first signs of loose teeth during pregnancy, be sure to see your dentist and consult with him.


Osteoporosis can occur in both men and women. This condition causes the bone density throughout the body to decrease and the bones to become more vulnerable to fractures. When the bone density around the teeth decreases, it can cause the teeth to loosen.

Injuries and bruises

When a blow or force is applied to the teeth, the periodontal ligament and the connective tissue that hold the teeth in place may become stretched and damaged. Periodontal ligament strain can cause loose teeth. This happens when you regularly brush your teeth together at night while sleeping, or press your jaws together, or your upper and lower row teeth are not aligned and do not overlap regularly. Any injury to your mouth from a fall or injury in an accident can also damage the ligaments and bones around your teeth. Therefore, take injuries and blows to the mouth area seriously and see a dentist immediately to check your condition.

Signs and symptoms of permanent tooth loosening

People who have loose teeth usually have the following symptoms:

Discomfort when chewing food

Pain when moving teeth

Redness, swelling, and damage to the tissue around the loose tooth

Treatment of loose teeth

The method used to treat your loose teeth largely depends on the cause of the loose teeth. The first step in treating loose teeth is to provide extra support for your tooth to make it more stable. This process, called splinting, involves placing a small, flexible splint at a point that can prevent your teeth from moving. Using a special toothpaste, the dentist attaches this small splint to one side of your tooth and attaches it to the side teeth to fix and loosen the loose tooth. The splint usually stays in the mouth for about two weeks, during which time the periodontal ligaments heal. If your teeth are loose due to gnashing of teeth during sleep, your doctor will give you a special mouth guard to put it in your mouth at night while you sleep. This guard acts as a shock-absorbing cushion between your teeth, preventing the jaws from fully overlapping during sleep. If you are in the habit of grinding your teeth against each other, using this mouth guard will cause your teeth to move back and forth on the soft material in the guard, and as a result, tension will enter the periodontal ligaments and your teeth will loosen. Be prevented.

Treatment for loose teeth in adults begins as soon as the dentist can diagnose the cause. Most of them are preventable or act as a treatment to prevent any underlying disease that is developing your loose tooth syndrome.


If your loose tooth is not detached from the gums, you can treat it with a splint placed by your dentist. Splinting involves the use of a piece of metal to connect two adjacent teeth. Splinting strengthens loose teeth and prevents tooth movement.

Adjusting canines

You may also change your mouth and jaw by removing or removing a small amount of enamel. The pressure on the loose tooth is then reduced. This will improve the ligament if pressed. This option is also suitable for those who suffer from involuntary gritted teeth.

Mouthwash, which is used the night before bed, is a good option to prevent teeth grinding during sleep. The guard acts as a barrier between the lower and upper teeth. It can also be used to protect teeth against sports injuries in boxing.

Mouthwash and medications

Another way to deal with loose teeth caused by periodontal disease is to rinse your mouth with an antiseptic and antibacterial mouthwash and take some antibiotics to make your mouth free of bacteria and less prone to gum infection. It also helps to improve the mouth.

Trim the roots

If you have periodontitis, your dentist will use a deep cleaning procedure that will remove all the problems and symptoms of the disease. Scaling is a method used to kill bacteria and mass. Root straightening is a method that smooths the root surface and helps the gums reattach to your teeth. Using these methods actually helps prevent the progression of gum disease.


You can surgically remove damaged or inflamed bone and gum tissue on your mouth that has ended up due to gum disease. Then you can have your teeth repaired so that all those bones and gums heal. Otherwise, you may have to have a bone and gum transplant.

Flap surgery

The dentist can also make incisions in your gums to pull them back. This allows the dentist to easily access the patient’s caries for root rot and scaling. After deep cleaning, the gums reattach to their original position. This is an effective way to prevent tooth loss.

Bone grafts

When you do not have bone in your jaw, you can use a bone graft to thicken it. This involves transplanting bone fragments from one part of the body to the jaw to make it thicker. The body is strengthened by placing calcium deposits on it and strengthens the jaw over time. This is also useful for dental implants.

Soft tissue transplantation

Soft tissue transplants act like bone grafts. The gums are placed in areas that do not have gums to help the healing process after peeling the root. Transplantation, as well as scaling and surgery, can treat gums or teeth damaged by gingivitis and periodontitis.

Enamel is the outermost layer of teeth and the hardest tissue in the human body. This layer is white and surrounds the crown of the tooth. Normally, a very small amount of tooth enamel is damaged during the day and night, but with good oral hygiene, it is not too late to restore the enamel minerals. But sometimes, due to factors such as poor oral hygiene, the enamel may be damaged and need to be repaired. What you read in this article is complete information about enamel erosion and its repair method.

Erosion is usually the result of destruction of tooth enamel by acidic activity. The following are involved in oral acidification, erosion, and enamel analysis:

Excessive alcohol consumption

Diet containing starch and sugar

Dry mouth

Decreased saliva

Acid reflux disease (GERD) and other gastrointestinal problems


Medications such as aspirin and antihistamines

In addition to the above, environmental factors such as daily friction, corrosion and abrasion can also cause enamel erosion. So, even if you eat right, avoid sugar, do not take medication regularly, and are generally in good health, you may still have enamel resorption.

What are the symptoms of enamel erosion?

Signs that your enamel is eroding include:

Fractures and fillings: The edges of worn teeth may have minor fractures and irregularities.

Discoloration: A decayed or damaged tooth has a dark yellow color.

Glazing: The tooth finds a shape at its edges called glass.

Sensitivity: Eating sweets or foods that are relatively hot or cold may be painful for people who experience enamel resorption. If the pain is severe, the enamel may be completely worn out.

What can we do to treat and repair decayed enamel?

The first thing you need to know about tooth enamel is that if the enamel is degraded and its thickness is greatly degraded, it can no longer be repaired. In other words, he can not repair himself. Because there is no living cell inside the structure of the enamel to regenerate and repair the enamel.

As a result, when we are faced with enamel resorption, we should refer to a dentist or restorative and cosmetic specialist to repair the enamel with dental methods. In the following, you will get acquainted with 3 methods of repairing and restoring tooth enamel.

Composite is one of the most common materials used in the dental industry. This substance is used for various purposes. But its most important use is to repair damaged and decayed teeth.

The dental composite is attached to a tooth that has suffered from enamel erosion by a restorative and cosmetic specialist and is hardened with the help of special light or heat. Dental composite is very durable and unlike other restorative materials, it has a very good bonding power to the teeth.

Dental veneers

Veneers are thin scales that attach to the front of teeth. The most well-known dental veneers are dental laminates and composite veneers, which are mostly used for their aesthetic aspects. But they can also be used to repair and protect decayed enamel. After composite bonding, veneers are the best method for treating tooth enamel erosion.

To install dental laminate, it is necessary to shave some of the thickness of the enamel so that the laminates stick to the front of the teeth.

To install composite veneers, there is no need to shave more enamel and they are attached to the front of the teeth only in the dentist’s office.

Dental crowns

Veneers are crown-shaped caps that attach to our teeth near the gum line. When much of the enamel is gone and the veneer and composite bonding of the tooth cannot be repaired, the only way left is to use a veneer.

Teeth that have recently been Denervated or are very weak are usually protected by a veneer.

What can we do to care for and protect our enamel?

Apart from brushing and flossing, there are many things you can do to prevent enamel erosion. Some of these simple and preventative measures are:

Eat a healthy diet

Eliminate acidic foods and beverages such as soft drinks, fruit juices and citrus fruits from your diet, or rinse your mouth with water immediately after eating or drinking such products. Be careful not to brush your teeth immediately after eating such foods. Because the rate of tooth enamel erosion increases and makes it more difficult to repair.

Be careful in choosing your snacks

If you can, avoid snacks throughout the day and eat only the main meals. If you have a strong desire for food and snacks, try chips, fast food, breads, dried fruits and…. Eat less because consuming them increases the production of acid and starch and increases the chances of tooth enamel decay. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with water if you consume these foods.

Drink more water

Saliva plays an important role in maintaining the health of the mouth and especially the teeth. Saliva removes plaque and helps to neutralize the environment inside the mouth. To reduce saliva in your mouth, try to drink plenty of water daily.

Chew gum

Chew sugar-free gum between meals. Chewing gum increases saliva production, which helps strengthen teeth and reduces the amount of acid in food and beverages. Buy chewing gum that contains xylitol because this sugar is very good for teeth.

Talk to your dentist

The best person who can help you maintain good oral health is your dentist. Be sure to talk to a dentist if you are afraid of enamel erosion or tooth decay.

Consider preventive dental treatments

For your children, you can also do fluoride therapy or fissure sealant at an early age to help prevent tooth decay or enamel erosion.
