Luxurious Tooth: An Ornamental Dentistry
Dr. Akhil Mudgal | Dr. Priya Mishra | Dr. Ajay Kumar Nagpal
Abstract: Luxurious is a fascinating world, and the laws that govern it can be extended to dentistry as well. Tooth jewellery isn't a new trend; it's been around for a long time, but it's regaining popularity among the younger generation. Tooth rings, twinkles, dazzles, lip rings, and grills are some of the many ornaments used in dentistry. Dental jewellery, even though worn for fashion, may cause several complications like caries, increased plaque accumulation, recession, metal allergies, etc. As a result, dentistry is becoming a fashion trend in terms of enhancing several different smiles with confidence and adding a little extra zing to them. Clinical significance: Teeth jewellery causes sensitivity and irritation to the soft and hard tissues, as well as unnecessary loss of tooth structure for the placement of various ornaments, resulting in cracks and tooth weakening, and these jewels can be ingested by the patient. The focus of this review is to learn more about the evolution of dental ornament aesthetics and their complications.
