FAQ - dentin dysplasia
(Powered by Yahoo! Answers)

Dentin - remineralizing pastes claim they can harden it but how do they get to it through the enamel?

Can these toothpastes with ACP, novaMin and others penetrate the entire enamel and then move into the dentin? Even toothpastes for sensitive teeth say they block dentin tubules, but how do they get through the enamel - the body's hardest substance?

The dentin tubules are on the root of the tooth, not the crown, where the enamel is located. If you are having sensitivity due to root exposure, then your dentinal tubules have been exposed. These toothpastes "plug up" the tublules, preventing sensitivity.
If there is an opening in the enamel, that is most likely decay, and would need to be treated professionally.  (+ info)

What is servere dysplasia of the cervix?

I had a pap smear come back with the results of having abnormal cells to the cervix. Then about 3wks ago i had a cervical biopsy done and was told that i had servere dysplasia. That my cervical cells were so abonormal. What does this mean? Do i have cancer and they did not want to tell me over the phone so i would not worry. Which i am, and so is my boyfriend. We cried together last night fear of me having cancer and the worse happen. The nurse at the clinic said that they are going to make an appointment with a specialist as soon as i get my financial papers in the mail. Which i received today and have to wait until MOnday being that the offices are closed on the weekend. Ahh. I dont know what to think. I am so stressed out and depressed.

Severe dysplasia is NOT cancer but a form of precancer.
Cells on the cervix will undergo changes sometimes when
the patient has the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). Over
70 to 80 percent of the population is infected with this virus
and do not know. If severe dyplasia (also known as a High
grade squamous intrapithelial lesion) is left untreated, it can turn into cancer. Cervical cancer can be a slow growing cancer and is quite curable when detected early enough. But the important is to follow your doctors instructions. Good luck to you.  (+ info)

What are your experiences regarding the treatment of hip dysplasia in human &/or periacetabular osteotomys?

At 14 I was diagnosed with hip dysplasia and at 15 underwent a periacetabular osteotomy. I am curious if there are any others out there who underwent this that I can compare my results with. I am currently experiencing a lot of difficulty with range of motion and wanted to see if this is a common side effect for others.

Can cervical dysplasia be contracted through saliva or oral sex?

If a female has a mild case of cervical dysplasia can she pass it on to a male via kissing or performing oral sex?

She can't pass on cervical dysplasia because you don't have a cervix.

But she can pass on HPV. It can live anywhere on the skin.  (+ info)

Is there a high risk of getting cancer if you have mild Cervical Dysplasia?

I was just told I have mild Cervical Dysplasia from high risk HPV. Does anyone know what the chances are of it turning into cancer? If you've had this how did it turn out for you?
Please only mature comments. I got the high risk HPV from my HUSBAND.

Hi there! I'm a Cytotechnologist. A Cytotechnologist is a laboratory professional trained to identify and interpret precancerous and cancerous changes in cells. I have screened over 100,000 Pap tests.

HPV is a virus that infects the DNA of a cell and causes cervical cancer and dysplasia. Most types of HPV progress over time, some more quickly than others. Early on, we can see the mutation of the HPV in the cell as changes we call mild dysplasia or precancerous cells. More advanced changes are called moderate or severe. The next step is CIS or carcinoma in situ, cancer that has not invaded other organs. Then comes cancer. If you don't get treatment, your chances of getting cancer are close to 100%.

Currently you have a strain of HPV that is High risk for causing cervical cancer, and you have symptoms that the virus is active (mild dysplasia). If left untreated, it will progress into moderate, severe, CIS and then invasive cancer.

But there is good news! You have been diagnosed with mild dysplasia. The doctor can treat you with cauterization, cone, LEEP or freezing the area that is atypical, and it may destroy all of the precancerous cells, and you will have a normal life and can still have babies some day. It doesn't mean that it can't come back though, and you will need to get your Pap tests on a regular basis, and possibly more treatment if it continues.

No woman has to die from cervical cancer. It is a treatable disease. You are lucky that it has been caught early. See your doctor and follow his advice for treatment. And don't forget to remind your mother, sisters, cousins and friends to get their Pap tests every year! It just saved your life!  (+ info)

My dentist recently told me to get a mouthguard to prevent dysplasia which can lead to cancer. Is this true?

My dentist told I am grinding my teeth at night, and also sucking in my cheeks, which is causing irritation to my cheeks and tongue. He said this irritation can lead to dysplasia, which can lead to cancer. Is this true? Mouthguards are expensive, so I'd like to be sure before I buy one.

Cancer? Hardly. It can become very uncomfortable for you later in life, and cause you to break teeth, but I have never heard of anyone getting cancer from grinding their teeth. It is also possible to get infections, but again, cancer is not caused by grinding your teeth. It is up to you whether you purchase one or not, but do not think if you don't buy one, you will develop cancer.  (+ info)

Does having cervical dysplasia affect my chances of getting pregnant?

I was just diagnosed with a mild case of cervical dysplasia. I've been trying to get pregnant for a yr now. Is the cervical dyplasia keeping me from getting pregnant?

I was told I had it as a young teen and had unprotected sex for years and never got pregnant. Stupid Dr told me as a teen I probably couldn't or would have a hard time getting pregnant. What a thing to tell a sexually active teen..So by the time I was 18 and still thought I couldn't get pregnant, I move in with a guy who turned out to be a complete nimwit but was pregnant before I realized how he really was. In my case I got clear paps and such from late teens on so I don't know if it resolved itself or just took a long time to get pregnant. There were about 3years between being told I had it to getting pregnant.  (+ info)

Can mild dysplasia really go away on its own?

I am 24 years old and 6 months ago I had an abnormal pap smear. I went back in the next week for a second pap and this too came back abnormal. After this I had a biopsy and coloscopy and they discovered I have mild dysplasia cause by HPV. Well on a scale of 1-10 ( 1 being nothing and 10 being cancer, I was a 3). My gyno said that because I was so young I would probably fight it own my own. I just went back yesterday (6 months later) for another pap to see if it went away, is the same or is worse. I won't hear for 2 weeks the results. And I am panicking. All I can think about is that in the 6 months it go severly worse.

Has anyone actually had mild dysplasia clear up on its own?

I have. I have high-risk HPV and had mild dysplasia. My first pap after colposcopy and cryotherapy came back abnormal, but no worse than before. My second pap was normal. I have my third one since cryo in about a week and I'm hopeful. It would be really unlikely for it to go from mild to very severe in only 6 months...In relative terms dysplasia is slow-moving. Relax. I know waiting sucks but you're staying as on top of the situation as you can.  (+ info)

If someone has been diagnosed with cervical dysplasia, should she be tested for an STD?

I've read that the HPV virus can cause cervical dysplasia, does this mean the woman has contracted the virus?

Probably. There is still a slight amount of uncertainty, but getting a pap to find out should solve the question. If you have it and treat it quickly, it's harmless (there's a really easy proceedure that you would have to get done, but you're healed in a weekend and can't lift more than 5lbs for a week).

There are actually over 100 types of HPV and all are so tiny that they can slip through a condom. It's estimated that 80% get at least one of them sometime in their life... so if you come up positive, you're in the majority.  (+ info)

Are or CAN cervical warts and cervical dysplasia be the same thing?

Cause I've had HPV for about 10 yrs now, and never had a wart, visible, but had cervical dysplasia, but my husband popped up with warts on his d*ck about 5 yrs after we had sex the first time.
And I've heard there is such a thing as cervical warts, so is it the same thing cause I also heard and read that the high-risk strains (the ones that cause cancer) are different than the ones that cause warts.

They can be caused by the same thing, but are not identical. Warts are not cancerous, but cervical dysplasia is. Taber's Medical Encyclopedia (21st edition) states that cervical dysplasia is "Precancerous chances in the cells of the uterine cervix..." Taber's definition of genital warts is " A wart of the genitalia, caused by strains of human papillomavirus (HPV) some of which are transmitted by sexual contact. In women, venereal warts, also known as condyloma acumenata, may be associated with cancer of the cervix and vulva..."  (+ info)
