My son is 7.5yrs. He shatters his teeth a lot at. I guess the term is called bruxism. Is there any remedy. And what are the drawbacks.

MDS Endodontist
Dentist, Delhi
Nite bruxism can be of two types. Day and night also called diurnal n nocturnal. It can be a result of several things one of them being stress. Cold etc. Yes there are treatments. Dentists usually make customised mouth guards for the patient t to wear so that it prevents dental damage. And try n reach the source of the problem to counsel them out of it. The habit has to broken to prevent temperomandibular joint dysfunctions mpds that is pain in jaw opening joint n jaw. Teeth wear. Tooth decay. Loss of vertical height due to that. Etc. It would be highly recommended you take him to a good oral pathologist or a pedodontist or a multi speciality dental clinic so that they may help you deal with the problem well good luck.

I have mild heaviness in my upper jaw and around te eyes and temples which come and go, my wisdom teeth are erupting for last 2 years but they dont srem to grow, consulted a dentist who suggested to extract all four of them. But is it safe to do so. The heaviness an mild pain occur when I wake up in the morning and come and go during the day, which hampers my concentration.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Kindly consult an ent as well for heaviness in the upper jaw, eyes & temple. Am suspecting sinusitis. Erupting wisdom tooth does not indicate extraction. Extraction is advised only if there is pain in the erupting wisdom tooth. We need more investigations (full mouth xray, sinus xray's) to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

You can go, age is not the factor.Your bone support and the condition of the gum is what is going to matter.If you have a good support of the teeth teeth treatment result will be better. Price and treatment time will depend on the condition you have.

Hi doctor. I am a 23 year old boy. Whenever I speak, I tend to spit on the listener. This embarrasses me and makes me avoid direct communication or makes me cover my mouth when I speak. I had braces as a teenager. What can I do to avoid the spitting?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Although excessive saliva is not too common, there are a number of conditions that can cause it - some harmless, others more serious. It is possible that your saliva problems are just a result of the way you speak. Some people speak faster or slower than others, just as some people blink more often, breathe faster, or have a more rapid heartbeat. This may just be what's normal for you. Since it is negatively affecting your life, I suggest your problem can be ignored. However there are medical conditions that causes excessive salivation injection glycopyrrolate reduces secretions in the mouth, throat, airway, and stomach.

Hello Doctor I am ramesh I am 45 year old man I have teeth cavity and yellow teeth problem last month what should I do please tell me.

BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
If cavity is not deep or there is no pain and sensitivity in the decayed tooth then go for restoration (filling) but if cavity is deep or there is pain and sensitivity in the decayed tooth then first get the x-ray done of that tooth and send me the x-ray picture for further diagnosis. There are several causes of tooth discoloration, including: foods/drinks. Coffee, tea, colas, wines, and certain fruits and vegetables (for example, apples and potatoes) can stain your teeth. Tobacco use. Smoking or chewing tobacco can stain teeth. Poor dental hygiene. Inadequate brushing and flossing. Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.

My tooth pains due to food lodging. Do I need filling in tooth or some ointment can heal.

BDS (GOLD MEDALIST)
Dentist, Jamshedpur
Once cavity starts it can't be stopped. Its a progressive process. Get an x-ray done to know about the extent of the cavity. If its superficial then go for filling. Or if pulp is exposed then you need to go for rct. Rinse properly after every meal. Rinse mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash.

If cavity is not deeper then no need to go for rct and if its deep and you are having pain, then you must have to go for rct. Visit to a dentist for xray and proper diagnosis.

Hello, bleeding from gums could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

Hi, most common reason for toothache is decay in tooth. It can be senstivity to cold also. You need to visit a dentist for oral examination and find out the cause of toothache. For temporary relief you can take analgesics. Visit a dentist for permanemt treatment.

Natural colour depends on the thickness of your enamel or outer shell of the tooth giving whitish or slight yellowish (colour of underlying dentin or second layer).

Good morning doctor I am somya I am 30 year old married female and I have gums bleeding problem last five months what should I do.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - have your dentures aligned as needed. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

My son 6 years old got cavity in left and right. I consulted a dentist. He advised me to go for root canal. Is it right?

BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
The dentist advised you right. As the permanent teeth below erupt at 10 to 12 years of age. And if we remove the tooth before age. The teeth below (permanent tooth) might not erupt straight. In allignment with other teeth.
