I am having tooth decay, even after filling the decay problem is still there what is the best solution to this.
We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.

I am 65 years and have healthy teeth but 5 months back I had one wisdom tooth extracted from lower jaw. There after I am feeling sensation in two front teeth of same jaw while yawning or wide opening of mouth. For the last two months I have seen discoloration in one of the affected tooth. The job was done from highly qualified Doctor in Chandigarh. Please let me know what could be the reason and remedy .My doctor says rct will be done. But why, it is healthy teeth with no cavity in its neighbour hood or in teeth away from this. Charges wise my doctor:---if a qualified BDS charges INR200/ he will do the same job for INR1000/ but still I wanted professional work. Please Reply.

There might be a problem in the TMJ (MOUTH OPENING JOINT) BUT THE SENSATION IS ONLY DURING YAWNING OR WIDE OPENING, OTHERWISE THERE IS NO SENSATION, ALSO THE DISCOLORATION IS LIKE WHAT? ONLY A PORTION IS DISCOLORED OR THE WHOLE TOOTH HAS TURNED GRAYISH OR BROWNISH. PLEASE CONSULT YOUR DENTIST AND TRUST HIM/HER. THE BEST POSSIBLE SOLUTION CAN BE PROVIDED BY YOUR DENTIST ONLY BECAUSE HE/SHE HAS EXAMINED YOU PERSONALLY, WE CAN MERELY GUESS BY THE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDED.

There is no contraindication. Therefore she might proceed with root canal treatment. Injection of local anaesthesia with adrenaline can be given safely after checking the BP of the patient. Hypertension if uncontrolled plain local anaesthetic injection without adrenaline can be considered.

Who should be treating you with braces?

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Jamshedpur
Who should be treating you with braces?
Although dentistry has seen tremendous developments in treatment techniques and materials in the last few decades, public awareness exercises have somehow not been able to keep pace with its rise. As a result most people today will be surprised if they are told that dentistry has nine different specialties.

Orthodontics happens to be the first specialty in dentistry. It deals with prevention, interception & correction of malocclusion (improper bite). Common problems like spacing between teeth, crowding of teeth due to lack of space, protrusion of teeth, un-aesthetic smile etc. Can be easily corrected by timely orthodontic intervention.

A malocclusion can result either due to abnormal position of the teeth or lack of harmony between upper & lower jaws. The best person to treat problems of such nature is an orthodontist. An orthodontist undergoes three years of rigorous training during his postgraduate program wherein he treats hundreds of patients having malocclusion of varying severity. After successful completion of the course he is awarded with the degree of mds orthodontics.

However as a consequence of lack of awareness, a lot of patients still do not seek the advice of an orthodontist for their problem. As a result such patient do not get the desired treatment outcome which predisposes their dentition for relapse after treatment. In addition such patients may also experience harmful effects on their occlusion (chewing efficiency) and may develop tmj (temporomandibular joint) related disorders in the long run. It is recommended that an orthodontic specialist be consulted before undergoing treatment of such nature.

I am not able to open my mouth full while eating something I don't have habit of tobacco.

Dear lybrate user, reduced mouth opening can be due to problem in the jaw joint or fibrosis/thickening on the inside of your cheeks due to infection. Consult your dentist soon to know the exact cause. Eat a soft diet, avoid fried and spicy foods, drink plenty of water and fluids.

Is it fine for a two year old baby to use Colgate sensitive or Colgate total charcoal toothpaste.

No tooth paste is 100 percent safe for kids, you must prefer edible ingredients from your kitchen for cleaning teeth of kids like turmeric, mustard oil, table salt, baking soda, lemon juice and many more. You can consult me in person through Lybrate for more information.

Homeopath,
Difficulty in opening mouth hv so mny reasons. Like chewing tobaco. Problem in tempero-mendibular articulation. Angular stomatitis etc. It's need proper diagnosis and treatment. I think you should consult with oro-dental surgeon. Sometime surgical intervention needed also.

Medicines are just for symptomatic relief. When there is severe inflammation of pulp or abcess is there, painkillers may not work in that condition. Surgical drainage of pus and procedure according to prognosis after clinical evaluation and radiographic diagnosis is essential. So visit a nearby dental surgeon and get complete treatment for it. Then only medicines will work as they are just supportive in removing dental infection with dental treatment procedures.

You can get better results only if undergo bleaching and whitening procedure. Toothpaste can help you to a few instances since because of your habit. Use SNOWDENT toothpaste apply it overnight and brush it with the same paste in the morning.
