Preface

The idea for dental home guide came through discussion with one of my senior dentist friend in Karachi, Pakistan. One night as we were discussing different things in the year 2010, Dr. Ibrahim Zafar came with the idea of preparing a mini guide for the patients that could focus on prevention and management of common dental problems. I was certainly enthrilled by this idea and in no time we agreed to work on this project. Every night we would prepare a list of common dental problems through our clinical experience and have discussion about those conditions. Although as the time passed by and after my shifting to Islamabad and busy routines of both of us, I started teaching in a dental college and Dr. Ibrahim was working at two different dental clinics, this idea remained dormant. After few months, I started gathering information and typing it altogether and in the next few months, the material was all ready to be published. We never published it as a book, so I decided to put it online and all this content was available on my personal website as a webpage (http://coolbluez.t15.org). However considering the trend to read books on electronic devices, I realized that it would be actually good to make the dream of publishing this book come true. So after three years in 2014, this book finally appeared as an electronic book through courtesy of Lulu publications.

This book does not serve to replace the need to go to the dentist. The basic idea and purpose of this book was to actually increase awareness about dentistry in the common public and more importantly provide with few strategies that people can use at home in times of emergency if they are unable to go to a dentist. Hence it would not be wrong to call this book a first aid for common dental problems. While writing this book, I remembered reading my course books in college which had fun facts written on the sides of pages. Even after a decade, our class fellows still remember those fun facts, therefore I tried to use the same idea in this book. I hope you enjoy the interesting facts related to dentistry.

The coverart of this book was collected from Microsoft Clipart Collection. I would like to thank 'Cool Text' website service (http://www.http://cooltext.com) for providing a great service using which I was able to design the title of the book.

While I have tried to keep things up to date but due to ever changing research and new discoveries, it might be possible that some content of the book may not be applicable. Therefore this book should not be used as a textbook or a reference material.

I hope people benefit from this work.

Dedication

I would like to dedicate this book to my wonderful teachers in Liaquat College of Medicine and Dentistry, Karachi, Pakistan who instilled me a spirit to serve patients with best possible level of care. I would pay special thanks to Dr. Syeda Nida Zehra who has been an excellent teacher and a wonderful clinician who would never get tired even after working for several hours. It is her enthusiasm and never ending energy that kept me going through some of the complex dental cases in my career.

What is Dentistry?

Dentistry is a branch of medicine that deals with the evaluation, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of various diseases and disorders of mouth and adjacent areas.

What is a Dentist?

A qualified, educated and trained person who is licensed to treat various diseases of the teeth, gums, supporting bone, mouth and adjacent areas. The dentists graduate after either 4 years (in Pakistan currently) or 5 years (in most European states) professional education before being able to practice dentistry independently.  The dental students study Bachelors of Dental Surgery (B.D.S.) graduate course. The graduate course (B.D.S.) is known by various names in different parts of the world e.g. D.D.S., BDent, BDSc, D.M.D. (D.D.S.: Doctor of Dental Surgery, BDent: Bachelors of Dentistry, BDSc : Bachelor of Dental Science, D.M.D.: Doctor of Dental Medicine).

The dental team:

Besides the dental surgeons, there are dental hygienists, dental assistants, dental therapists and dental technicians who comprise the dental team at any clinic or dental hospital.

Dental hygienists: Licensed professionals who can take X-rays, Fluoride application, impressions of teeth, scaling and root treatment, polish the teeth, place dressings and remove sutures. They can also give proper instructions for maintaining healthy mouth.
