xx Myth about Tooth extraction in Ngeria
April 12, 2018, 05:51:50 AM by Isaac Adeniran
Most people erroneously believe that once you have one tooth extraction then you will continue to remove your teeth.
The wrong believe is not it among the illiterates but Lao among semi ikketerated and sophisticated life rates people.

As a dentist of over 20 year working experience in Nigeria, I can tell you categorically that is not a true statement.
Tooth extractionis done as a last option when there is no other treatment or when the patient cannot afford the cost of root canal reatment.
And tooth decay and periodontal diseases are the th so major causes of tooth extraction and not something mysterious.
No force can make you to continue to have tooth extraction when there is no indication for it.

xx What are the Causes and Treatments of Burning Tongue Syndrome

What are the  Causes and Treatments of Burning Tongue Syndrome

Burning tongue syndrome causes a burning sensation in your tongue. It can be part of "burning mouth syndrome", where your whole mouth including gums, lips, cheeks and palate are affected. OR it can just affect your tongue, and nothing else.

The discomfort caused by burning tongue syndrome and burning mouth syndrome can be quite bad.It can feel as if you have scalded your tongue or mouth with boiling water, or just eaten some REALLY hot chilli sauce. And that's just when you're sitting doing nothing. If you try to eat or drink anything, the discomfort gets worse. The only exception is usually cold water.
 
For some reason, Women tend to be around 7 times more likely than men to suffer with this condition. There seems to be a hormonal connection here, as it occurs most frequently in women just before the menopause. But it CAN occur at any age, and in men as well as women.
xx What is a Black Hairy Tongue

What is a Black Hairy Tongue

 
A black hairy tongue sounds like something really scary - but it's not! It is totally harmless. It is NOT the result of anything bad, and it will not CAUSE anything bad to happen.

 As the name indicates, black hairy tongue has 2 components - black (ie. a dark color) and hairy (ie. a "furry" texture).


The dark color comes from dark things you eat and drink, such as coffee and tea, and red wine, and maybe the spice turmeric in hot foods, and also from smoking. The "hairy" bit comes from an overgrowth of the tiny buds on the surface of your tongue.


But
this overgrowth is not anything like a tumor. It's caused by the little buds on your tongue surface not getting worn down as much as normal. They are usually worn down through normal eating and chewing.

Ask The Dentist!
Do you have a question you want to ask the dentist?

about dentistry you want to know, but don't want to pay those high consultation fees?

OR DO YOU WANT A SECOND OPINION
about treatment you have received?I'm here to answer all your questions, to give you my straightforward opinion, to be your INDEPENDENT advisor.

 Because I am not "touting for your business" as a patient, I can give you honest and direct answers to your questions without being influenced by what treatment someone has told you that you need, insurance companies, dental boards or other dentists trying to put pressure me.

When you Ask The Dentist here, you are talking directly to me.

Contact Dr Mitchell - ask a question or give an opinion!Use the  Contact Me button to send me your question. I will do my best to answer within 24 hours, but please allow 48 hours, especially for more complicated questions

Wait for your answer!



What can you expect to get for your money when you use my "Ask The Dentist" service?

First, you can expect my undivided attention. Because I answer my email enquiries at home, I have no distractions from activities in the dental office. Nobody calling me with an emergency. No phone calls. Just me concentrating on your question.

Second, you can expect me to think carefully about your issue, with no time pressure. I'm not in a rush to "get you out of the chair" and get the next patient seen. I can take some time to consider what you have asked, and what other side issues there may be, before writing my reply.

xx What are aphthous ulcers and canker sores in the mouth?

 What are aphthous ulcers and canker sores in the mouth?

They are the same thing! In some countries these mouth ulcers are called canker sores in the mouth. Generally, the correct medical term is "aphthous ulcer", and "canker sores in the mouth" is what patients call them.
They are not contagious, so you don't have to worry about spreading them to other people in any way. However, they can be very painful, and can interfere with eating and speaking, depending on where they are situated.
Canker sores in the mouth are:
  • like tiny craters inside your cheeks and lips, roof of your mouth, and sometimes in your throat.
  • all different sizes; the bigger they are, the longer they take to heal up.
  • caused by a number of different conditions.
  • more frequent in men than women.

xx Dr. Bolaji Ogundare donated modern library to college of medicine
October 17, 2017, 11:04:13 PM by Isaac Adeniran
The Faculty of Dental Sciences, College of Medicine, University of Lagos, has received a donation of a modern library from an alumnus, the Chief Executive Officer of New Cross Petroleum, Dr. Bolaji Ogundare.

While handing over the facility to the college on Thursday, Ogundare said the gesture was to  give its users access to updated information in the field of dentistry.


 Ogundare said, “As a student and alumnus of the faculty, what I discovered was lacking in the present-day education situation is access to global information, which can only be gotten from a well-equipped library with an internet facility and upgraded text books.

“It is what  I have always wanted to do and I feel very fortunate to do this in my school environment. I want to appreciate the school management for their approval because it’s a different thing to want to give back and a different thing for the college to give the go ahead.”


The donor, therefore, encouraged the college to profile the faculty of dental sciences as one of the resource materials in the library.

 “It is always good to tell your story for reference purposes and every student, old and new, should be able to do a background check on their college at any point in time,” he said.


Speaking at the inauguration, the Provost, CMUL, Prof. Folounsho Lesi, who lauded the gesture, said that an institution without a well-resourced library would add no value to research.

Lesi said, “Dental education is one of the most expensive types of education in the world today and it requires a lot of expensive resources that need to be subsidised by this type of gesture. This donation is highly appreciated by the university authority and we are using this time to call on other alumni not to hesitate to give back to the college.”
