PZA — AGM & DENTAL TALK

The Parsi Zoroastrian Association held its 77th AGM on 20th July 2014 at 11am at the D.B. Mehta Atash Adaran Lower Hall. The meeting was attended by about 75 people.

This was followed by an interesting talk by Dr. Chiradeep Haldar on THE WORLD OF DENTISTRY — AN INSIGHT.

It was an interesting and informative talk – cum – power point presentation during the course of which Dr. Haldar took us through the various fields of dentistry / dental treatments.

At the outset, he stated that the field of dental treatment had now undergone intense specialization, with the result that there were now about 10 to 12 fields of sub specializations within the world of dentistry. Gone were the days when a single dentist would attend to ALL dental problems. There were now sub specializations in the fields of: Fillings, Root canal treatments, tooth extractions, treatment for protruding teeth etc.

Some of the advice which he gave in his talk is as follows:

1. Elderly persons are advised to use a soft tooth brush, as the use of a hard tooth brush could damage the enamel of the teeth and injure the gums.

2. Wearing teeth braces: Children should wear braces, if required, at around the age of
11 years but not at 18 years and beyond. The braces at that tender age help to correct the mouth formation of crooked or protruding teeth as the bones are softer than at a later age when the bones are hard and difficult to shape with the braces. Another important point is all milk teeth should have fallen by then and new permanent teeth would have replaced the milk teeth at age
11 or 12 years to be ready for correction by wearing braces.

3. Cleaning of teeth: He stated that cleaning of the teeth should be done by a teeth cleaning specialist, and everyone should do so every 6 months. This would keep the teeth healthy, prevent receding gums, and prevent/remove plaque formation.

4. Brushing of teeth: Brushing the teeth in the morning and last thing at night is very essential to prevent acidity in the mouth which leads to tooth decay. One could also brush teeth without toothpaste. However, using toothpaste leaves a refreshing taste in the mouth.

At the end of the session, there was a lively Question & Answer session.

Dr. Haldar has his clinic at Ripon Street where he practices with his wife Dr. Souravi Haldar who is a Cosmetic Dentist

The session was followed by a contributory lunch of chicken biryani catered to by our new dharamshala manager and caterer, Mr. Dara Hansotia .

It was a good initiative from the PZA, and we hope that more would follow.
