When I brush my teeth, my gums bleed. What should I do?

Bleeding of the gums is an important sign of gingivitis. Gingivitis is a reversible inflammation of the gingival tissues which swell (edemoedematous) and become darker, losing their characteristic pink colour. If, whilst cleaning your teeth at home, you notice bleeding, you should go to your dentist for preventive and therapeutic treatment for this pathology. The Dentist and Dental Hygienist will also show you how to maintain the hygiene of the oral cavity.

Are implants “safe”? Are there any problems of rejection? Is there any risk in the operation?

Implantology has been common in dentistry for a long time. Countless scientific studies, from the 1960s, have justified its use, confirming that this treatment is effective and lasts in time. Implants are definitely one of the best treatments for edentulism.

The titanium used to make the implants is a material that has the characteristic of being biocompatible. Therefore, there have never been any cases of rejection and its insertion does not require taking anti-rejection drugs to reduce this risk.

As for any surgical operation, there are both relative and absolute contraindications with the insertion of implants. Therefore, only frank dialogue with the dentist can help the patient to understand any possible risks connected with the operation. Only with the close collaboration between the patient and the dentist can the best result be achieved with the fewest risks.

I don’t want “false teeth” and my dentist says there are not other possibilities, What can I do about it?

You often read in the papers or in magazines about miraculous treatments that can solve all the problems of patients. In dentistry, as in any other branch of medicine, there are no miraculous cures or absolute certainties.

A good doctor is able to compare the needs and requests of patients with the clinical and therapeutic possibilities, drawing up a correct treatment plan.

Today there are many therapeutic alternatives available that can be evaluated and discussed, therefore you should see a specialist in order to weigh up all the existing possibilities. With a simple clinical examination and X-ray, the patient can be directed towards the best treatment, considering the biological and economic costs as well as the clinical limitations.

I suffer from “bad breath”. What can I do about it?

Halitosis is a common problem that can have important consequences on our social life.

This problem is often caused by problems of the mouth. The proliferation of specific bacterial species inside the oral cavity can cause an unpleasant odour, especially at certain times of the day.

All bad habits such as smoking and drinking alcohol, which can worsen, or even cause, this situation, should be avoided.

In minor cases, sweets and chewing gum (strictly without sugar!) are enough to relieve the symptomatology. In more serious cases, you should consult a dentist for advice on the most effective treatment.

A few days ago I noticed a mark/lesion/ulcer on the mucous of my lips/cheeks, tongue. What can I do about it?

The presence of lesions of various types on the mucous of the oral cavity is frequently found in dental examinations. In the vast majority of cases, these lesions disappear within about 7 days, without leaving any scar or other effect.

However, if the lesions remain for an extended period of time, you should see a dentist for a diagnosis and effective treatment.

It is important always to observe and pay attention to our mouth during the hygiene routine.
Our best method of prevention is self-observation followed by a visit to our dentist. Keeping an eye open for pathologies which may be serious should not be neglected, especially when they appear frequently and for a long time, is the best possible prevention.

Some time ago I noticed a tooth was slightly bothering me. Afterwards it passed, but a few months later the tooth became darker than the others. What can I do about it?

Necrosis, i.e. the deterioration of tooth pulp following inflammation, is a process that can take place silently and be ignored in a good percentage of cases, with a symptomatology that is not specific and not particularly painful, and thus neglected by the patient.

After necrosis of the pulp, some pigments migrate, invading the hard tissue and giving a slightly bluish or dark colour, with obvious aesthetic problems.

In order to avoid complication for the bones, you should consult a dentist as soon as possible to evaluate the possibility of treating the tooth to restore its original colour as far as possible.

I would like to whiten my teeth. What do I have to do?

Today many pharmaceutical companies have put numerous products and instruments on to the market for whitening teeth at home. The professional products are more concentrated and effective.

Whether you choose home treatment or professional treatment, it is always best to seek a dentist’s advice in order to avoid unpleasant complications and side effects.

When I wake up, I can feel something/a pain in my face, on the side, in my cheek which continues during the day. What should I do?

Nocturnal bruxism (teeth grinding) is a relatively frequent problem in our society and is often associated with periods of emotional stress.

The bruxism patient clenches and grinds their teeth very strongly, during the night but also in the daytime, mostly unconsciously, causing many lesions and discomfort on waking.

In addition to the symptoms already mentioned, this typology of patient has characteristic abrasions of the teeth which become flat, linear and without the characteristic cusps.

The use of mobile devices (braces) at night greatly reduces the symptoms of this pathology protecting the teeth, the masticatory muscles and the mandibular joint from excessive and incorrect strain.

Often, when I’m chewing, I hear a sound at the level of my ear, when I open or close my jaws. What is it?

So-called joint “clicking” is a symptom that the joint connecting the jaw to the skull bone is not working correctly. It is a very common dysfunction in the population of varying gravity.

Although there is no clear pathological symptom and may not need corrective work, it is advisable to consult an orthognathic specialist for a correct diagnosis, without neglecting the problem.
