    But first lemme take a Selfie”

    A line heard quite often.

    Dressing for a party? Lets take a selfie first.

    Ready for some adventure? Lets take a selfie first.

    We take selfie for every mood or occasion and so we have types of selfies – morning selfie, boredom selfie, workout selfie, first date selfie, first interview selfie and what not.

    Gosh! People are so obsessed with this habit.

    But ever thought why? The reasons could be many. It can be a manner of showing excitement or can be a way of loving self or just a way of expressing your thoughts or can also help you feel better.

    But ever thought of taking a selfie while brushing? Ewww…. who does that. Why will anybody think of taking a selfie at this moment? But just spare a minute and think, will it help?

    According to a study, taking selfie while brushing can improve your oral health. It helps you to adopt a better brushing technique which in a way leads to better oral health.

    It often happens that we brush twice a day and think that the job is done, that now we will not face any dental amenities. What we ignore is the technique of brushing and not adopting a proper technique can ruin everything.

    Researches suggest that taking or recording a selfie can improve the accuracy of brush strokes, increase the number in strokes and can therefore, improve the overall tooth-brushing skills.

    How often do you take your child to a dentist specifically to make him/her learn how to brush? Like never? Because you feel that this is an easy process which like always will be passed from one generation to another. Therefore, we never think of undergoing a proper training practice for the same. Brushing selfies in a way will solve this training problem as well. Video recording while you brush will help you correct your ways all yourself. All you need to do is watch what you did and there you will figure out what’s wrong. And if you feel that you’ve adopted the right way, then you can visit a dental clinic near you to show your dentist the video recording. Not only could he/she correct your ways of brushing but can also examine your dental health easily. You can also send your brushing video to your dentist in case you fear to visit one.

    This very act of recording a selfie while brushing can make you conscious of your brushing techniques and reinforce behavioral change and can even create a new muscle memory.

    This is just a first step towards mHealth to create new healthy dental habits which will help dentists and patients to focus more on prevention rather than fixing the problems once they occur.

    You can even have best brushing competition where-in you can post your brushing selfie on any social media platform and challenge your friend to upload his/her brushing selfie. Just like the ice bucket challenge this too can be fun and healthy; making India learn how to brush properly.

    So next time when you brush just try taking a selfie, you never know what wonders it can do to your Oral Health!!

    The above statement holds equal importance for the body as well as your oral cavity. Tooth decay and gum disease are the most common oral diseases that destroy that treasured smile. Dental health is way more important than people actually realize and along with the daily oral hygiene practices your nutrition has a big role to play in this. In people with poor nutrition, dental disease progresses faster as compared to people with a healthy nutritious diet.

    The chunks that we eat in the middle of our meals do more harm than food eating during meal. The saliva secreted throughout the day helps to wash the food and lessen acid production which leads to lesser cavities and as a result do not cause any harm to teeth. A perfect diet is a healthy blend of many components contains proportionate amounts of essential nutrients. From fruits to vegetables, let’s discuss the secret recipe for happy oral health:

    • Fruits – apples, oranges kiwi, limes, strawberry, banana are considered to be the best as they are rich source of vitamins, minerals esp. phosphorus
    • Dairy products – milk , yogurt and cheese being rich sources of calcium and proteins
    • Vegetables – foods like carrots , green leafy vegetables , cauliflower , green beans and peas are considered good as they clean out the teeth while you eat them
    • Fluoridated water – is considered to be the most healthy tooth beverage

    Amongst the foods that should be avoided and are practically no – no’s to have for healthy mouth include sweetened beverages (like coffee and soft drinks), candy cookies, pastries, muffins etc. The first one leaves a layer over the teeth that causes tooth decay and all the latter ones contain a huge amount of sugar that become feeding grounds for bacteria also resulting in dental cavities. It also becomes difficult for tissues in the mouth to resist the infection and thus leading to gum disease and eventual tooth loss.

    There are certain types of foods that are not advised specifically in certain dental conditions. For a patient undergoing ORTHODONTIC treatments- sticky, chewy hard foods are not to be taken and instead a soft regular food is advised. Patients with DRY MOUTH are warned against alcohol, smoking, caffeinated drinks and spicy salty food. In cases of MOUTH ULCERS also spicy salty are to be refrained. . Hot, hard and crispy foods are to be avoided in the initial days Post treatment in IMPLANTS and ORAL SUR GICALcases. The foods generally recommended in such cases are yogurts, soups, custard, baked apples and mashed potato.

    In a nut shell, while brushing and flossing are the star cast to a healthy mouth , a healthy diet plays an indispensable supporting role. Maintaining this diet and its nutrient values will go a long way to keep your mouth healthy and enhance that beautiful smile.

    So next time you take a sip of your favorite sugar loaded soda – think again!

    As an orthodontist in practice for last 4 ½ years , I have been consistently providing braces treatment to teenagers keeping their chronological age as the onset criteria. But what about the other end of the spectrum ? With increasing prevalence of appliances that are barely noticeable , it is not hard to figure out why more and more adults are seeking treatment. At delhidentist.co clinics we are proud to help patients at all age groups achieve their confident smile. Do I believe in treating the older population ? Or , do I have adult patients walking upto me to get Braces ? There are ample reasons to consider orthodontic treatment at any age which could vary anywhere from getting mal-alignment corrected to getting a proud smile giving a moral boost to the patient. The factors that closely determine your candidature as an orthodontic patient is the state of your periodontal health , general health , extent of your malocclusion and not your biological age. Compromised general health such as cardiac anomaly , blood disorder , neurological disorder like Epilepsy, uncontrolled diabetes , etc may act as a constraint. Although a rare problem , but something to be mindful of during orthodontic corrections.

    The first dental visit of a child is full of anxiety for the parents as well as the child. It often depends on the parents, as to how they have prepared the child for the visit and whether the dental experience will be pleasant or traumatic. A child is definitely not going to be comfortable in an alien environment of dental surgery. And they normally have great apprehension and fear of the unknown

    Best age to plan visit to the Dentist

    The first dental visit of a child should be any time after the emergence of the first few teeth, which is generally speaking when the child is reaching one year. Visit to the dentist is also warranted if you see any black spots on teeth

    Prepare your child for a visit to the dentist

    Parents play an important role in preparing the child for the dentist visit. The parents by themselves being apprehensive may unknowingly instil fear in the child’s mind and resistance for treatment. To prepare the child to be comfortable in the dental surrounding, parents must start preparing the child a couple of days prior to the appointment. At no time, the child is to be made scared of a dentist by telling the child that we’ll ask the dentist to remove your teeth

    Parents should speak about going to the dental appointments using positive connotation only (both before and after each visit). They should not talk of the words like drilling, painful, hurt, pain, injection and needle, etc.

    One of the best ways to prepare your child is to start playing ‘Dentist-Dentist at home’, for example ‘counting of teeth’, ‘shape of teeth’, singing brushing songs while brushing teeth.
    Phrases that can be used to describe the first visit to the dental office, ‘the dentist will tickle your teeth’, ‘will be painting vitamins on your teeth to make them strong’. These small measures will definitely aid in building the confidence in the child

    The first appointment of the child should be to let your child experience the dental office for a ‘visual inspection and a joy ride on the chair’. The dentist generally do not start any treatment on the first visit and they like to get to know the child and befriend them. Having said all this, the dentist also plays a major role in alleviating the fear from the child’s mind.

    The Dental Surgeons are specially trained to be patient friendly and use techniques so that the child feels ‘NO PAIN’ at all. In essence, our ultimate aim is to keep children absolutely comfortable, and to minimize anxiety when they visit the dental office to ensure that the traumatic experience does not create long term fear which may drive the child away from the dentist forever, which will lead them neglecting the oral hygiene and thus opening the oral health gateway to effect the general health.

    Dental Crown and Bridges:

    They are most common means of restorations, and come in category of fixed dental prosthesis i.e once placed upon teeth they can only be removed by Prosthodontist or general dentist.

    What are crowns?

    Crowns are also  called  ”cap” in lay man terms ,they act to cover or encircle entire for protection of either root canal treated teeth or vital teeth or dental implant. In root canal treatment or in large dental restoration large amount of tooth is already drilled away. Placing dental crowns on remaining tooth structure will provide strength and prevent tooth fracture. It also helps tooth to return to normal aesthetics and function.

    Dental Bridge

    In cases where there is missing teeth it becomes necessary to restore the missing teeth. If we leave an empty space between teeth, the adjacent teeth will start drifting towards the empty space .This can cause problem like improper occlusion (in lay man terms it is called bite) which will eventually lead to worn out teeth, gum problems in severe cases Temporomandibular Joint disorder. Bridge act as an restoration to fill the gaps left by missing teeth.The replacing teeth on bridge will be matched perfectly to missing teeth in function and aesthetics and prevent problem arising from missing teeth as discussed earlier.

    Many of you must have seen old people chewing food without teeth, giving an impression that food can be chewed in that manner as well, but how many of you have actually understood how very painful it is to chew with your gums and underlying bone?

    Teeth are not only there in the mouth to chew but have multiple roles. They give the  face shape, fullness and structural support. In cases of ‘Bite Collapse’, what occurs with people without teeth as seen in old age, cheeks lose support and start to sag inwards giving an ‘Old look’ even to a younger person. Teeth also help in digestion. It is important to chew properly so that the digestion remains proper, but without teeth that becomes difficult. Teeth also help in keeping the jaw bones intact and in shape. Once teeth start to fall, the bone starts to resorb, in some cases it becomes dangerously thin and prone to fracture. Presence of teeth keep the bone under continuous functional stress due to masticatory forces within physiological limits.

    Teeth also help in proper articulation, the tongue touches the front teeth and the palate to pronounce ‘th’ sound which includes words like that, thin, then, three, both, worth, etc. Other sounds produced are C, F, L, S, V. The front teeth also help in aesthetics, which these days has become a prime concern.

    Of course, teeth help you to chew on your favorite food like different types of nuts and carrots and who doesn’t relish that chocolate with fruits and nuts in it? But imagine eating all this  without a set of good healthy  teeth.. Wouldn’t it be difficult? For sure, yes!  Good Teeth add to the aesthetic beauty of an individual by not only imparting good oral health but give one confidence to smile brightly and look visually appealing and healthy. So next time you have a missing tooth make sure to visit your dentist for a replacement.

    Orthodontic Treatment

    Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with straightening and correcting the tooth alignment and the dental specialist who does this is called an "Orthodontist".

    Who Needs Orthodontic Treatment?

    Today children as well as adults are choosing to have orthodontic treatment since age is no longer a factor that governs the feasibility of the treatment. But as you grow older the duration of the treatment is increased since it is easier to shift and align teeth during the growth phase of the jaws. Orthodontic treatment corrects -malocclusion (bite or occlusion is off)
    -tooth malalignment (crooked teeth)

    Why Treat Malocclusion?

    Orthodontics is not only used to improve your appearance.

    Malocclusion or malaligned teeth can have long term effects, such as:

    interference with normal growth and development of the jaws
    abnormal swallowing patterns
    abnormal facial muscle function
    impairment of chewing

    susceptibility to cavities due to the difficulty of removing plaque from crooked teeth vulnerability to accidents or fractured teeth (if your front teeth stick out, they may be more easily injured)

    How Do Braces Work?
    Teeth can slowly be moved and shifted into proper position by applying pressure in certain directions. Bands, wires and elastics are placed on the teeth to move them in the right direction. This takes place slowly and carefully over an extended period of time. Shifting teeth back into a functional position can take months to years, but eventually you'll have a new and improved mouth! Retainers are often used after the braces, to hold the teeth in their new position until they are stable. It is important to wear the braces or an appliance for however long it takes. If you quit at any point during treatment, the teeth can shift back into their old position.

    Why replacement of missing teeth is necessary

    A missing tooth can negatively affect the way you speak, depending on its location.

    Bite changes:

    The loss of one or more teeth can cause the redistribution of bite pressure onto other teeth. Over time, this can cause the teeth to shift and move into the space the tooth once held.

    Gum disease:

    Shifting teeth can make it easier for plaque to accumulate in hard-to-reach places. This can increase the risk of gum disease, which can lead to additional tooth loss.

    Bone loss:

    The teeth are place-holders in the jaw. When one falls out and is not replaced, the bone that once surrounded it begins to deteriorate and wear down.


    A missing tooth leaves a visible gap between the teeth and can be a source of embarrassment and insecurity.
