What is Mandibular Fracture?

A Mandibular fracture is a breakthrough the mandibular bone (lower jaw), which can be triggered by a traumatic or occur spontaneously, depending on the debilitating intrinsic circumstances or violent muscular contractions. Traumatic agents can be mechanical (traffic accidents, labor, fighting), physical-chemical, or pathological.

According to specialists in RxCura, these agents can act through two differentiated mechanisms. The direct, by which the fracture occurs in the same place where the agent has worked, and the indirect one, whereby the fracture occurs at some distance from the place of impact, which may or may not be fractured.

Clinically, Oral Fracture is usually characterized by:

 

 

Veneers treatment are mainly used for three reasons: Wear, genetics and worn enamel

 

  • Inability in opening or closing the mouth completely

  • Deformity of the mandibular arch resulting in misalignment of upper & lower teeth (inappropriate occlusion)

  • Crepitation, displacement and abnormal mobility of lower jaw,

  • Painful inflammation on palpation.

  • Facial asymmetry (fracture or bone dislocation).

  • Crepitation, displacement and abnormal mobility of lower jaw,

  • Anesthesia of the lips (i.e. Loss of sensation) due to injury to the nerve.

  • Altered sensation (Paresthesias) in tongue, lips, bleeding gums.

 

 

Mandibular fractures are typically the result of trauma either a fall onto the chin or a hit from the side or accidents.

 

The mandibular areas most susceptible to fractures are the mental foramen, mandibular angle, condyle neck, areas weakened by the absence of teeth. Diagnosis can be made with X-rays, CT scans.

 

For Broken Jaw Treatment, it is necessary, in the first instance, to save the life of the patient if it has been put in danger. Treating mandibular fracture involves providing the optimal environment for bony healing to occur like adequate blood supply, immobilization and proper alignment of fracture segments. Most fracture requires reduction and fixation to allow for primary and secondary bone healing. Immediate surgery is not necessarily required. Supportive treatment with antibiotics should be started first. Specific treatment of Broken Jaw Surgery may even delay between 7 and 10 days later. The goal is to reduce displacement to establish a normal occlusion of the patient and immobilize the fracture fragments until the bone is reattached.

 

There are different types of method to fix the broken mandible like reduction, intermaxillary fixation with arch bar, screw, splints. The method adopted by your doctor will depend on the site and severity of fracture, patient age and presence or absence of teeth on the fracture site

 

Dentists at Rxcura Oral Fracture Treatment clinic take into account patient safety before proceeding to repair maxillofacial fractures. Such fractures can cause severe complications, such as infections, delayed union or lack of union of bone fragments and occlusion disorders, among others. To avoid this, it is necessary to carefully follow the appropriate treatment, which will be informed by your specialists.

Digital Smile Makeover

Things to know about Digital Smile Makeover

 

A Digital Smile Makeover is a process that is intended to give a person a more upright, more attractive smile with the help of specialized software to simulate the corrected smile upfront. Many people are self-conscious of their smile because they feel that their teeth are not enough white/ fairly straight or they have missing teeth or fillings. These problems cause people so self-aware that they do not want to smile or laugh or even get photographed because they are unhappy with their appearance. If this is the case then Smile Makeover is the right solution for you.

What kind of problems can be rectified with Smile Makeover?

 

 

Often the frame of a Smile Makeover treatment includes straightening the crooked teeth that are overlapping each other so that they can be moved into better positions. Unsightly holes can cause a person to feel a hesitant about smiling, so these problems are usually addressed in the smile makeover procedure. If a person is missing teeth, they can also be replaced as part of the process of the smile makeover. The number of processes a person needs will depend on the dental problems he has, and each case is unique.

Types of Treatment covered in Smile Makeover

 

 

 

Smile Makeover not only covers the Cosmetic Dental treatment but also compulsive treatment for correction of teeth disorders. Some of the procedures (among others) are:

 

  • Veneers or Lumineers: These fine porcelain shells are tied to your teeth to conceal dental defects and create a brighter smile. Both options are stain resistant, durable, and easy to maintain.

  • Teeth whitening: Who does not want a brighter and whiter smile? RxCura Digital Smile Makeover clinic can definitely help you achieve this through whitening in clinics or takeaway bleach trays.

  • Bonding: With dental bonding, we can improve the appearance and functioning of your teeth by building and shaping the tooth with a compound and colored resin.

  • Crowns: A crown helps to improve the health, function or appearance of the tooth. They are used for aesthetic purposes as well as for repairing damaged teeth requiring protection.

  • Bridges: A dental bridge can restore your smile by filling the space created by one or more missing teeth. It consists of crowns (for teeth on either side of the space) and false teeth (for gaps).

  • Implants: If you have removed a tooth, you may be interested in a dental implant that will replace the roots of the tooth and will create a solid foundation for a replacement tooth designed to match your natural teeth.

 

What to expect in Digital Smile Designing

 

Getting a Digital Smile Designing usually begins with an appointment with a cosmetic dentist. The dentist will usually evaluate the overall dental health of the patients and the different possibilities to improve his smile. The patient usually can tell the dentist what his expectations are for his or her beautiful smile. Your dentist will design the makeover smile with the help of specialized software. The simulated smiles can be seen by the patient over the computer and can provide their inputs to enhance it further.

 

While a smile makeover offers you many benefits that include enhancing appearance, giving you a confident smile and more, there are some disadvantages to consider. For example, a Digital Smile Design can be expensive. Also, some smile makeover procedures can take a long time, involving a few trips to the dentist, especially for those who require a high degree of dental reconstruction.

 

At RxCura, we strive to provide the best Digital Smile Makeover in Bangalore to our patients at very affordable prices. Our aim is to bring out the best smile hidden in every face.

To date, there are different types of Tooth Jewelry that apply to the dental surface as explained below. Dental jewelry is placed on the front teeth of the upper arch.

 

Paste

 

They are artificial crystals of small size which are fastened to the teeth by means of special glue for short periods of time, ranging from a few weeks to 2 months. These crystals are non-toxic and 100% safe to use whenever you buy and them placed from a certified professional in the area.

 

DScales

 

The scales are small jewels that are processed with a special technology, where they degrade the material in different phases to make specific forms. As far as we talk about the appearance, they do not differ much from the paste. Chances are that only its owner has true knowledge of the origin of those small glitters in their smile.

Root Canal Treatment at very low price by RxCura – India’s Trusted Chain of Dental Clinics

A root canal (tooth root) is composed of nerve fibers and blood vessels; a pulpy matrix is filled between the tooth cavity that sometimes gets inflamed due to multiple reasons such as fracture or deep decay. With root treatment, elimination of inflammation and bacteria can be done to improve the health of buccal cavity.

Micro-Endodontics or the root canal treatment, is a comprehensive focus which is in practice nowadays.

Root canal treatment also includes root filling revisions, i.e., the renewed root filling in already root-treated teeth.

Who needs root canal treatment?

The most common symptoms that can indicate the need of a root canal problem are provided below.

  • Frequent appearance of pain, particularly in response to hold & cold stimulus

  • Swelling in the gums or inflammation in the tooth

  • Tenderness of the tooth i.e. feeling sensitivity on tapping the tooth

  • Bad taste or odor coming out from swollen gum

Some teeth seem to give little indication that there’s a problem within their nerve space. But an experienced dentist can easily look for subtle hints that are an obvious sign that a problem likely exists.

You can contact expert dentist of RxCura in Bangalore to seek expert guidance for your problem, without the need to visit them.

In most cases, it will be necessary to first apply local anesthesia; the tooth will be anesthetized. As a result, the tooth is opened to the pulp chamber using a drill. The carious, infected substance or the pulp tissue is removed, an existing bleeding is breast-fed, and the tooth is dried. To keep away saliva and microorganisms from the surgical field in the further course, a special clamping rubber is suitable for screening (rubber dam). This is a rubber latex, which is fixed to the tooth with a clip and is clamped outside the oral cavity in a frame.

Step-by-step process of root Canal Treatment

A. Depth of the root canals electronically or radiographically.

Teeth can be individually different in size, and accordingly, the tooth roots are differently long. Depending on the tooth group, they reach differently into the jaw bone. The root canal filling should be approximately 0.5 to 1.5 millimeters in front of the root tip since the root canals usually have their narrowest point here.

Bacteria or root canal filling material should not reach beyond the tip of the root, as this can lead to painful tissue reactions. Therefore, the required length of the root canal filling (working length) is determined with a so-called measuring x-ray and electronic devices (Apex locators). In pregnancy, of course, no x-ray should be prepared. Here the electronic length determination (endometry with Apex locators) proves to be very helpful.

B. Clean, expand and form channels

Once the channel inputs are found, the channels are processed with root canal instruments to remove the infected tissue in the channels. This is done in several steps, for which you need differently thin instruments (up to 0.1 mm). Since the channels are usually very narrow and curved, these instruments must be very flexible and well-cut. They should not be too thick and stiff. Otherwise they will not follow the canal course and possibly damage or destroy the tooth roots.

C. Disinfect the canal system, dissolve residual tissue

The root canals are not only narrow and curved, but they also have different branches and lateral canals. As a result, many areas cannot be reached with mechanical instruments, which is why the root canal system is thoroughly rinsed after mechanical processing. Various rinsing agents are required to dissolve organic tissue residues, kill bacteria and remove residues of the tooth substance from the canal wall. After rinsing the root canals are dried with different paper tips.

D. Close the drainage system tightly

If there was pain or a swelling already before the treatment, after cleansing and disinfecting, an antimicrobial drug is first introduced into the root canal system in most cases. The tooth is closed with a provisional, easily removable material.

The root canal system must be tightly closed to prevent microorganisms from reaching the oral cavity through the tooth into the jaw bone. The material of the root canal filling must above all be biologically compatible; it should not trigger any defensive reactions of the tissue around the tooth or the jawbone. Also, it must seal well and must not be allowed to dissolve in the tissue fluid. If pain or a swelling continue after the treatment, the root canal filling must also be removed. Finally, it is necessary that the filling is also visible in the X-ray image and can be controlled.

What are the possible benefits of this treatment?

Saving the natural tooth with this form of treatment offers several advantages including:

  • Normal biting sensation and force

  • Effective chewing process

  • Natural appearance

  • Protection of teeth over excessive wear or strain
