Weekly interdental cleaning frequency is closely related to oral health

   “Dental gap”, also known as “tooth gap”, as the name implies, is the gap between two adjacent teeth. Commonly used oral health care measures such as brushing teeth and gargle, etc., everyone must be clear, but how many people will do the daily cleaning of the teeth? Recent studies in the United States indicate that adults who regularly clean the teeth between the teeth regularly have oral health The score is higher and gingivitis occurs less frequently. The research topic is Interdental Cleaning and Oral Health Status Inan Adult Cohort, 2015 to 2018, published in the Journal of Dental Research (JDentRes) on May 28. The latest study summarizes the data of 26,086 cases from 2015 to 2016 and 22,585 cases from 2016 to 2018, and analyzes the correlation between the weekly frequency of interdental cleaning and oral health score, tooth extraction, bleeding gums, loose teeth, and alveolar bone loss. Sex. The results showed that: If the teeth were cleaned more than 7 times per week, the oral health score was significantly increased, and the incidence of gum bleeding was reduced by 38%. In addition, older age, low socioeconomic status, diabetes, and smoking are all related to poor oral health. Nowadays, there are not many people who have bleeding gums, inflammation of the gums, atrophy of the gums, enlarged teeth, and regular teeth. The gaps between these people have lost their normal shape, so various bad oral problems have occurred, affecting the quality of life and affecting mood.   The shape of the normal interdental space The adjacent surfaces of two adjacent teeth are in close contact with each other, which is called “contact point” or “contact area”. A good contact relationship between adjacent surfaces can prevent food incursions and maintain the health of the gingival papilla and alveolar process.  Dental plaque and soft dirt easily accumulate in the interdental space, causing inflammation and receding of the gums, and increased interdental space.  Dental space and food impaction When the normal tooth space is lost between the adjacent teeth, food impaction is likely to occur. Food impaction can be divided into vertical impaction and horizontal impaction. Vertical impaction occurs mostly between teeth with gaps (especially narrow gaps) between each other, that is, there is no “contact area”, and food squeezes into the gap from the vertical direction. Common causes are caries, missing teeth, and loose teeth due to periodontal disease. Horizontal impaction usually occurs between the teeth of the patients with periodontitis who have receded the gingival papilla, and the food is pressed into the gap from the horizontal direction.   Food embolization for a long time will cause inflammation of the gums and periodontals, with serious consequences.

What to do if the teeth are big?

It is often seen that some people have very large teeth. This is not a serious illness, but it has a great impact on the appearance of the individual and even affects the individual’s psychology. Especially if there is a seam in the middle of the front teeth. Whether it is talking or smiling. Quite awkward, there is a gap between teeth and teeth under normal circumstances, but the normal tooth gap is covered by gingival tissue (gingival papilla).  What is the reason for the large tooth gap?   The front tooth gap is too large for both innate and acquired reasons.   1. Congenitally divided into two cases.    One case is that the teeth are sewed after eruption.    There is also a case where the tongue lacing is too long and too wide, which prevents the two incisors from joining together during tooth development. 2. People who suffer from periodontal disease the day after tomorrow are also susceptible to large tooth joints. When mechanical stimulation, incorrect brushing, gum inflammation, and periodontal disease are used, the gingival nipple is prone to inflammation and bleeding, and continuous gingivitis causes gum atrophy. The height of the gingival papilla is reduced, resulting in a large amount of alveolar bone loss. The teeth are loosely displaced and form a gap.   Other acquired causes:    Caries (worm teeth): There is caries adjacent to the teeth, causing the gap between the teeth to widen.   Wisdom teeth: There is a certain gap between the wisdom teeth in the oblique growth direction and the front molars, resulting in excessive tooth gaps.  Implanted food: The teeth are imbedded with food for a long time, and the food is embedded in the interdental space, which presses the gingival tissue, and inflammatory receding of the gingival papilla can occur, thereby increasing the tooth gap.  Displaced teeth: The displaced teeth lie in between the roots of the incisors, resulting in an incisor gap that is too wide.   Tooth tumor, ambush tooth: Between the maxillary anterior teeth is the common site of odontoma and ambush tooth, which can be confirmed by X-ray film.  What should I do if there is a large gap between front teeth?    One of the methods is orthodontics. Some patients feel that traditional metal orthodontics is unsightly, uncomfortable, and time-consuming and refuses to correct. At this time, mobile digital full-steal correction is the ideal choice.  ♥Let the patient quietly become beautiful without affecting the appearance.  ♥Can be worn at any time, convenient and comfortable.  ♥The correction process can be simulated by computer software, and the results after correction can be directly seen.

Do not dare to laugh with gaps in front teeth?

You know, whether it is talking or smiling, there is always a kind of teeth that must be exposed. They are incisors. There is also a scientific name for incisors called incisors, which is mainly responsible for cutting off food. In addition to the first two front teeth are incisors, add up, down, left and right, there are eight incisors in total. There are also different divisions of teeth. In addition to cutting off food and aesthetic functions, incisors also have a very important impact on our mental health, especially for young patients, courtship, job search, social … are not confident, how can it be good? Today we will talk about how to repair the incisor gap. At present, doctors generally adopt the following methods: porcelain veneer repair, orthodontic treatment, composite resin repair, etc. If they are not treated for a long time, it may be so serious that a combination of multiple methods is required. If the incisor gap does not exceed 3mm, the crown is accompanied by abnormal color, morphology, irregular aspect ratio, or partial defects. Doctors generally recommend the use of porcelain veneer repair. This method can effectively retain healthy tooth tissue. In comparison, this method can achieve gloss and translucency similar to natural teeth, and it is more satisfactory in the long run. Another kind of composite resin repair, although simple and economical, has less damage, but in the long run, wear resistance, surface finish and edge strength are not as good as porcelain materials. If the incisor gap exceeds 3mm, it is also accompanied by abnormal midline and appropriate crown width to height ratio. Doctors generally recommend orthodontic treatment to close the gap. In the clinic, because patients have persistent requirements for beautiful teeth, orthodontics and porcelain veneers are generally used in combination, with better results. The incisor gap is not recurring. Closing the forehead gap is just a helpless move. Maintaining good oral hygiene habits is a once and for all. Eat more fibrous foods in life, especially vegetables and fresh fruits with high fiber content and nutritious foods. In this way, it is not only conducive to the self-cleaning effect of teeth and less prone to caries, but also to the growth and development of the oral and maxillofacial regions. At the same time, it is also necessary to avoid biting hard objects such as hazelnuts and beer caps directly with your teeth, which are easy to cause damage to the periodontium and teeth. Parents should also pay more attention to the child’s dental health, and need to see a doctor in time after problems are found. Early treatment generally has a short time, less pain, good results and less cost. For the incisor gaps in adolescence, you can generally use the growth and development period to adjust yourself. During the incisor gap in adulthood, it is recommended to consult a dentist in time to select the most suitable method for gap closure. Pre-school children should undergo oral health examination every 6 months, take targeted professional oral health methods, care for their teeth, and start small.
