Hi, I have a habbit of taking honey with warm water early in the morning. Can I continue this after oil pulling. Can I do oil pulling with sesame oil or should I do only with coco nut oil.

Oil pulling is a very primitive way or cleansing your teeth it may not be very helpful. I would suggest ideally not to rely on the same.

Implants

If you are self-conscious because you have missing teeth, wear dentures that are uncomfortable or don't want to have good tooth structure removed to make a bridge, talk to your dentist to see if dental implants are an option for you.

Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth. They are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile. In fact, the development and use of implants is one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past decades. Dental implants are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. They are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth.

Most patients find that a dental implant is secure, stable and a good replacement for their own tooth.

There are generally three phases to getting an implant:

• First, the dentist surgically places the implant into the jawbone. Your dentist may recommend a diet of soft foods, cold foods and warm soup during the healing process.

• Next, the bone around the implant heals in a process called osseointegration. What makes an implant so strong is that the bone actually grows around it and holds it in place. Osseointegration means “combines with the bone” and takes time. Some patients might need to wait until the implant is completely integrated, up to several months, before replacement teeth can be attached to the implant. Other patients can have the implants and replacement teeth placed all in one visit.

• Finally, it’s time for the placement of the artificial tooth/teeth. For a single tooth implant, your dentist will customize a new tooth for you, called a dental crown. The crown will be based on size, shape, color and fit, and will be designed to blend in with your other teeth. If you are replacing more than a single tooth, custom-made bridges or dentures will be made to fit your mouth and your implants. The replacement teeth usually take some time to make. In the meantime, your dentist may give you a temporary crown, bridge or denture to help you eat and speak normally until the permanent replacement is ready.

If you are interested in dental implants, it's a good idea to discuss it carefully with your dentist first. If you are in good general health this treatment may be an option for you. In fact, your health is more of a factor than your age. You may be medically evaluated by a physician before any implant surgery is scheduled.

Chronic illnesses, such as diabetes or leukemia, may interfere with healing after surgery. Patients with these issues may not be good candidates for implants. Using tobacco can also slow healing.

Brush your teeth twice daily but this is not sufficient it is must to massage your gums after brushing and after each meals. As gums are living tissue when you massage your gums the blood circulation improves and the adoption to teeth becomes better and also soft food remnants which has penetrated after having meals would come out this will not let bacteria growth and prevent gums from inflammation otherwise the food remnants which continues to build up the deposit called plaque which can lead to gingivitis later advance to periodontis wherein the inner supporting bone is destroyed by bacterial deposit surrounding the gum and bone thus weakening the teeth. This bones are shockabsorber as in vehicle's they take up the pressure of chewing food. As you do service to your vehicles similarly this is a daily service in your mouth thus massage your gums after brushing and after each meals you will never have bleeding gums or any kind of chronic infection around gums and teeth, thus teeth remains stronger may be life long. Good oral hygiene means maintains good overall health and keeps your other systemic disease undercontrol.

If taken care at the right time, gum diseases can be reversed easily. By getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed from the teeth, you can get rid of the gum diseases, reversing it in its initial stage itself.

Diabetes and Dental Health

Diabetes is a degenerative disease, which affects your metabolism. As a result of metabolic irregularities, every part of the body is affected. The following are early indications of untreated diabetes:

-Increased thirst
-Increased urination
-Increased hunger

In addition to the ones above, the following are associated symptoms:

-Blurred vision
-Headache
-Fatigue
-Slow healing of cuts
-Itchy skin

How can diabetes affect your mouth?

-Diabetes increases the risk of infections and delayed regeneration of damaged/ dead cells. As a result, fungal infections like thrush may develop in your mouth.
-Because of poor healing of wounds as a result of diabetes, extensive gum damage may occur.
-Periodontitis is a severe effect of diabetes in which your gums begin to move away from your teeth, leading to a formation of pockets between your gums and teeth, which fill up with pus and germs. The damage can be stopped only with gum surgery and removal of affected teeth.

Prevention

The single most effective way to prevent damage to your teeth is to actively control blood sugar content by regularly taking medicines and following a healthy diet recommended by your doctor. Common methods of dental protection go a long way to help prevent oral problems because of diabetes. These include:

-Brush thoroughly and carefully after every meal (wait 30 minutes for food acids to neutralize, and then brush as this helps in effective cleaning)
-Use non-alcoholic mouthwash to treat dry mouth and disinfect the oral cavity
-Floss at least once everyday
-Use a soft bristled toothbrush
-Remove your dentures and clean them regularly. Do not sleep putting them on
-Quit smoking, chewing tobacco and chewing gums with sugar in them

The braces treatment depends on the severity of malalignment. Moreover it also depends on the dental setup. As far as I know in our area colleges of charitable setup charge around 8-10 thousand and private institutes and clinics charges vary from 15 thousand to 40 thousand.

I am 16 year old boy I am brush daily but my teeth has yellow can you give me a home treatment.
The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

Tooth ache should not be taken lightly. It might mimick some other condition also. So please tell the nature of pain and when does it start and when does it end. Does it linger, does cil food or hot food affect the type of pain or does any hard food precipitate it. Do inform us. If possible just upload the pic of the tooth.

Lifestyle Habits to Maintain Good Oral Health

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
If you want a healthy set of teeth, you must follow healthy lifestyle habits. There are certain habits that you need to follow strictly in order to keep your teeth healthy. Not maintaining proper oral hygiene puts you are at an increased risk of various oral diseases.

The lifestyle habits to maintain healthy teeth are:
1. Brush regularly: Brush your teeth at least twice a day or if possible, after every major meal. Use a toothbrush with soft bristles so that you don't injure your gums.

2. Flossing: Develop the habit of flossing your teeth on a daily basis, as flossing helps in removing food particles and other foreign substances stuck within the teeth cavity. It also does not allow plaque to accumulate in between your teeth.

3. Avoid sugar: Eating foods that contain high amounts of sugar can lead to tooth decay. The bad bacteria that are present in the teeth use the sugar to form acids that erode the enamel of the teeth. Cavities may also develop in your teeth due to increased sugar intake.

4. Visit the dentist: Most people delay their visits with the dentist as much as possible. Oral problems are not shown the level of urgency as compared to other diseases. Visit the dentist on a regular basis as untreated underlying conditions may lead to serious complications.

5. Clean your tongue: Once you finish brushing your teeth, don't forget to clean your tongue. This is another aspect of oral health that most people miss out on. Bacteria can accumulate on the tongue leading to bad odor. Scrape your tongue using a cleaner to prevent accumulation of bacteria.

6. Avoid smoking: If you are a smoker, then it is time that you quit. Smoking increases the risk of oral cancer and stains the teeth as well. You may also be prone to gum disease if you cannot ditch that cigarette now.

7. Diet: Avoid eating junk foods as they are not good for your overall health. Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits as they contain vitamins and minerals that keep your teeth healthy.

8. Reduce stress: Excessive stress levels can contribute to various periodontal diseases. Practice relaxation techniques such as meditation to keep your stress levels under control.

HOME BLEACH FOR THE TEETH 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.
