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.

Hello ok see this means that your m2 can be saved by root canal treatment and m1 can be saved by simple filling. So go ahead start your treatment before m1 also gets infected.

You will need surgery for either one or both jaws depending on how complex it is. Surgery alone may not sort out the issue as the teeth will also need braces to correct the position before or after surgery for correct treatment. Cost depends on the doctor, hospital and equipment /plates screws used. A private consultation would be appropriate for this. X rays need to be seen.

I have pain in my teeth. I use sensodyne while brushing my teeth twice a day but then also my pain is not getting less please give me some solution to my problem.

BDS
Dentist, Thane
Hello, pain in tooth and sensitivity are two different problems. Sensitivity is sharp, shooting type of sensation in teeth on contact of extremely cold or hot food which usually lasts for a few seconds and disappears completely after that and re-occurs again on such stimulus. Pain in the tooth which is not getting less indicates a different and more complex problem which needs proper examination and treatment. You have pain in your teeth and sensodyne (any of the sensitive toothpaste) is a sensitive toothpaste. So there will not be any relief offered by any sensitive toothpaste. You can take a pain killer tablet like brufen 400 or combiflam for a temporary relief and consult a dentist for proper treatment to avoid such problem in future. (note: pain killer tablets are also not solution because they only treat the symptom and not the cause of tooth pain. Also harmful for the body if taken for longer periods without proper supervision.)

These days nicotine substitutes (like Nicorrete) are available in market which help to overcome the withdrawal symptoms and dependency, so you can use them judiciously as per dosage mentioned on the pack, but it's overuse is also as bad as your current habit.

Dentist,
My teeth are not in order.What can i do?
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need braces. You may consult me in person too. 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.

What is the cost for fill up the gaps between every teeth?

BDS
Dentist,
Gap filling can be done by orthodontic treatment(braces) or can be even done now a days by emax venners and laminates which is much quicker than the ortho treatments but requires an invasive approach. Treatment modality sometime even include both ortho treatment follwed by venners in extreme cases. You can call up on 9819947716 to know more and have the best possible price for your treatment.

Definately you can have braces onto your teeth. But the time of results to show will only be decided by the severity of your uneven teeth. But they do require a minimum of 6 months atleast. You can get your braces on & still go to abroad. Have a happy treatment.

Welcome New Year With Sparkling Teeth

Welcome New Year With Sparkling Teeth

Professional in-office teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the world today. Unlike home-use whitening systems that incorporate low-dose bleaching agents, in-office whitening (also known as power bleaching, power whitening, professional whitening or chair side whitening) takes place under carefully monitored conditions which allow for the safe, controlled, pain-free use of a relatively high concentration of bleaching gel – yielding results that are visible immediately.
Advantages of office bleach

No other teeth whitening procedure produces faster results.
This is the safest form of tooth bleaching.
Gum and tooth sensitivity (formerly drawbacks to in-office bleaching) are more controllable today due to thicker peroxide gels (that don't soak into the teeth as much as previous gels) and the use of desensitizers such as potassium nitrate and fluoride.
Stains that are best removed in office bleach

Chairside whitening removes organic stains or discolorations primarily caused by:
Aging. Over time, the teeth darken with a yellow, brown, green or grey cast (which may be due to heredity and/or eating habits). Yellowed teeth tend to whiten most readily.
Consumption of certain foods (notably coffee, red wine, sodas and dark-colored vegetables an
Are you suitable candidate for teeth whitening

This procedure is not suitable for those with the following conditions:
Tooth and gum hypersensitivity. To avoid a hypersensitive reaction, your dentist is likely to recommend take-home bleaching trays with a low concentration of carbamide peroxide – which is not as potent as hydrogen peroxide.
Deep and intractable staining. Some stains are resistant to high-concentration in-office bleaches. In such cases, dentists may recommend a supervised regimen of intensive take-home bleaching or alternatives to hydrogen peroxide bleaching such as bonding, crowns and porclien veneers.
Teeth that have become transparent with age. This is particularly true of the front teeth, which are thin to begin with.

Meri age 52 years hai Mouth ki skin main jalan hoti h mirchi ya katayi khane pr. Sb jagah dikha diya kuch farak nhi hua. Please help.

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
You can start with antioxidants. One good option in such conditions is a chewable tablet called Spage. There are some antioxidant based ointments like Curenext too that help. You can use mouthrinses like Tantum for pain relief before meals. But I would suggest you see a proper specialist for this because it could even be an early sign of conditions like OSMF, and only once we see you will we be able to make proper diagnoses.

My age is 26. I cleaned my teeth recently in clinic for the first time and I don't want to clean it every year because it creates teeth gap and damages to the teeth. Can better care avoid me to go to the clinic again?

BDS
Dentist, Zirakpur
Getting teeth cleaned every 6 months is just like you taking a professional care of your face, hair etc. Cleaning dosnt create gaps. Cleaning removes tartar from inbetween the teeth and if you maintain that cleaniness your gum will fill up that triangular gap. -care all you need is two times brushing -interdental cleaning -tongue cleaning -restrict in between meals -decrease the frequency of sugar intake -rinse your mouth everytime you have something even after all this you might be needing a professional cleaning once a year because after you have your meal their is a deposition of a layer on your teeth which is called plaque. That plaque if not removed turns into calculus (tartar) professional cleaning remoces tartar.
