I want to get my front upper teeth shortened. May I know how much would it cost to me and does that make my mouth shape go round or get changed?

After treatment there will be no such changes and if any changes happened that will be in aesthetic favor. A picture of your front tooth region will clarify what exactly you want like braces or just trimming of upper front tooth. As you mentioned teeth shortening, that means you feel your upper front teeth are larger than others, in that case, if trimming is only 1-2 mms, it can be done easily without paying much. But if we have to reduce more, that may require capping with or without intentional RCT. Cost will be according to treatment and other related procedures. I. Case of braces, time duration and cost not will be increased. So please clarify what exactly is your need. THANK YOU.

Professional cleaning n polishing of teeth by dentist removes all external stains. If the stains r due to internal factors (such as fluorosis, enamel defects etc), teeth whitening will be required

Rct is required or done only when the decay reaches the pulp i. E. Innermost layer of tooth or if there is hypersensitivity. If you are a bruxer than ceramic and zirconia are not a good option, first get the treatment for bruxism and then go for final crown. Rct's are completely safe procedure.

I have suffering from teeth pain from three months. Please give me solution to overcome this pain.
The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. •If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. •If your toothache can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

In case of cavity you need to see a dentist and get the caries removed and filling done. For the time being do warm saline rinses and hv any pain killer, this will help you reduce your pain. Colgate paste with colgate soft bristles toothbrush is all time best.

Dear lybrate user, the gaps between teeth need to be clinically checked but be rest assured that there are a variety of treatment options available for you like fillings with tooth-colored materials, laminates, veneers etc. The treatment plan would depend on the amount of space present between teeth so consult your dentist and get a checkup done.

I am 60 years old. For the last 2 months I have been suffering from mild tooth pain, but yesterday when I was eating more a ricegrain came between the pained tooth and the corresponding lower tooth and it pained me tremendously and it has been paining me severely.

If there is pain, there has to be a cause for it. Look out for any decay or any food lodgement in that area. Whenever there is decay in tooth it initially causes sensitivity, but if your decay is deep and extends till the nerves of the tooth then you may feel pain in the tooth. Treatment of superficial decay is filling and deep decay is root canal treatment. Another cause of pain in tooth can be spacing in between two teeth leading to food lodgement which ingresses into your gums and causes pain. You can get this problem treated by having a deep cleaning of your gums and some necessary measure to close the gap depending on hw much of gap you have. please consult your doc and get the problem diagnosed so that you can obtain suitable treatment. For temporary relief you can take some over the counter pain killers which suit you.

A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better.

I suffers from mouth ulcers at regular basis kindly suggest me what I have to do or suggest me a medicine for the same.
If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

It is painkiller and if taken too often they it can harm you. If you have toothache then you may take homoeoapthic medicine Coffea Cruda 30 tds for 1 day. It is advisable to take any medicine with proper consultation.

You must try and try again and again until you succeed. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.
