I'm 25 years old, female. I'm having bartholin abscess problem and it is reoccurring frequently. First couple of times when it happened, as per doctor's advice I took hot water sittings. (add pinch of salt to hot water and sit in water for 10-15 minutes). Doing this for 2-3 days, made the lump to burst and pus used to come off. But last april the swelling was severe and I underwent an I and d procedure (insert and drain). The problem has happened now again, and now there are saying it could be a bartholin cyst and we may have to remove cyst. Please help me and here are my concerns: 1. What is the difference b/w bartholin abscess and bartholin cyst? 2. Are there any steps or measures that I can do to ensure the problem does not keep repeating? 3. What is the permanent solution for this?
I am 25 years old and I am having dark area below my eyes since long time. Usually my HB remains in 10-11. I have undergone HB improvement courses (including B complex, Iron, minerals and folic acid tablets+ Diet) many times. But they have shown a little improvement in my health but no change in dark circles. I have read on net the common cause for these and no one fits right. Also the skin of the area is very thin. Please suggest if these dark circles are curable. How can I get rid of these.
Removal of teeth is gradually not the first option for a lot of dental issues. However, a large number of dental infections and other causes end in extraction. The front teeth, because of their visibility, are more likely to be replaced. The back teeth often go un-replaced, though they play a higher role in terms of food digestion and function. In many patients, reasons for impaired bite and crooked tooth are traced back to failure to replace a removed tooth. (Learn more to maintain healthy teeth)
Let us look at the some of the issues as a result of not replacing a missing tooth:
- Reduced chewing/digestive efficiency: The back teeth play a significant role in chewing the food and contributing to the initial stage of digestion. The salivary enzymes play a significant role in digestion when the food is chewed and removal of back teeth tends to make people swallow food faster than if good amount of chewing were to happen. Studies show that loss of each posterior tooth (molars especially) reduces tooth efficiency by 10%.
- Malocclusion: A malocclusion happens due to the empty space created, into which 3 teeth are trying to move. The tooth before and after the empty space tend to slowly tilt towards the empty space in between. Also, the opposing upper or lower tooth supra erupts into this space. Each tooth plays a critical role in maintaining the adjacent and opposing tooth in place, which is lost when a tooth is not replaced after removal.
- Bone loss: The tooth also is essential for maintaining healthy bone, and if not replaced, it can lead to accelerated loss of alveolar bone. Good bone support is very essential for construction of dentures, especially in old age, when complete dentures which are almost always removable need to be done. This is true especially in the lower teeth, where denture retention is a big challenge.
- Extra pressure on other teeth: Not replacing a tooth puts additional pressure on the remaining teeth, leading to accelerated bone loss and wearing off of the enamel.
- Esthetics: There will be a sinking in of the face when back teeth are not replaced, leading to a puckering.
So, the next time, tooth loss is inevitable, ensure you plan how to replace it in the earliest possible time period. The more it is delayed, the more difficult it is to replace it and the more expensive it will turn out for the patient. Fixed dentures or removable dentures can be the options, depending on age, food habits, finances, etc. Implants also could be another option, which is the new-age solution for replacing teeth. A detailed discussion with your dentist, ahead of removal will help you plan better. (know more for Nutrition and Dental Health)
