Kindly consult an orthodontist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (model study, full mouth & profile x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need fixed / removable braces. Requirements may depends on the age, complaint, duration of the treatment & affordability. Cost of cosmetic dentistry (braces) varies with dentist.

You get black spots only if the tooth gets decayed. Consult a dentist in person. Whitening can be done to treat your yellow teeth. You can apply SNOWDENT tooth paste. Apply it for 10-15 minutes. Overnight application is effective.

Gums Weakening in Hindi - कमजोर मसूड़ों का कारण

Gums Weakening in Hindi - कमजोर मसूड़ों का कारण

हमारे शरीर में दांतों के महत्त्व से कौन इनकार कर सकता है. जब बात दांतों की है इसे धारण करने वाले मसूड़ों को अनदेखा नहीं कर सकते हैं. मसूड़ों में में आने वाली समस्याओं का प्रत्यक्ष प्रभाव दांतों पर पड़ता है. इसलिए जब भी सूजन हो, उनमें कमजोरी आए, ब्रश करने के बाद खून आए, दांत हिलने लगें और मुंह से लगातार दुर्गंध आए, तो ये सभी मसूड़ों की समस्या के लक्षण हैं. जब ये लक्षण नजर आएं तो तुरंत इसका उपचार शुरू कर देना चाहिए क्योंकि इससे शुरुआती चरण में छुटकारा पाना आसान है. लेकिन समस्या के बढ़ जाने पर बहुत मुश्किल हो जाता है.

1. प्रारम्भिक लक्षणों को अनदेखा करना
किसी भी समस्या को यदि आप प्रारंभ में सुलझाने का प्रयास करें तो उसका निदान बेहतर और आसान होता है लेकिन यदि आप शुरुवात में उसे अनदेखा करेंगे तो आपको गंभीर परिणाम भुगतने पड़ सकते हैं. जब भी आपको मसूड़ों में सूजन होना, उनका कमजोर पड़ना, ब्रश करने के बाद खून आना, दांत हिलना और मुंह से लगातार दुर्गंध आना आदि मसूड़ों की समस्याएं नजर आयें तो आप सावधानी से इसका उपचार शुरू कर दें. क्योंकि यदि आप देर करेंगे तो इसके दुष्परिणाम के रूप में दांतों का टूटना और कई अन्य रोगों उत्पन्न हो सकते हैं. मसूड़ों में में आने वाले सूजन या खून को हलके में नहीं लेना चाहिए.
2. नियमित रूप से ब्रश न करना
रोजाना ब्रश करने से पुरे मुंह की स्वच्छता बनी रहती है. इसलिए नियमित रूप से ब्रश करने पर आप दांतों और मसूड़ों की कई समस्याओं से बच सकते हैं. लेकिन नियमित रूप से ब्रश न करना, आपके दांतों में ब्लॉक प्लाक पैदा कर सकता है. यही प्लाक नहीं हटाए जाने पर टार्टर बन जाता है. टार्टर को ब्रश भी साफ नहीं कर पाता है. ऐसे में आपके पास सिर्फ प्रोफेशनल क्लीनिंग के द्वारा ही सफाई का एकमात्र विकल्प रह जाता है. इसके कई संभावित कारण हैं जैसे धूम्रपान, डायबिटीज, आनुवांशिक कारण, कमजोर रोग प्रतिरोधी क्षमता आदि.
3. गिन्गिविटिज
जब मसूड़ों की समस्याएं बढ़ जाती हैं तो इसे गिंगिविटीज़ भी कहते हैं. इस दौरान आपके मसूड़ों का लाल होना, सूजन और दर्द, ब्रश करते समय मसूड़ों से खून आना, मसूड़ों का दांतों के ऊपर निकल जाना और लगातार सांस से बदबू आना जैसे लक्षण दिखाई पड़ते हैं. गर्भवती महिलाओं में ऐसी समस्या होना आम बात है. इसलिए उन्हें अपनी सेहत व दांतों का ख़ास ख़्याल रखना चाहिए.
4. मसूड़ों की बीमारी
जब हम प्रारंभिक लक्षणों को अनदेखा कर देते हैं तो मसूड़ों की ये बीमारी की दूसरे स्टेज पर पहुँच जाती है. इसके संकेत हमें मसूड़ों और दांतों के बीच मवाद बनने, दांतों का गिरने, दांतों व मसूड़ों के बीच बहुत अंतर आने, और खाने को चबाते समय सभी दांतों की स्थिति में बदलाव आने के रूप में नजर आता है.
5. मुंह की सफाई न होना
मसूड़ों की समस्याओं के प्रमुख कारणों में से एक ये है, मुंह की साफ-सफाई का ध्यान न रखना. जैसे खाना खाने के बाद हमें ठीक से कुल्ला कर लेना चाहिए जिससे दांतों के बीच फंसे कई चीजें जो बाद में सड़ सकती हैं, वो बाहर निकल जाती हैं. रोजाना ब्रश तो करना ही चाहिए. यदि आप नियमित रूप से ऐसा करेंगे तो आप इन परेशानियों से पहले ही बच सकते हैं.
6. डेंटल ट्रीटमेंट
कई बार ऐसा होता है कि मसूड़ों या दांतों से संबंधित परेशानियों को अनदेखा करने से कई ऐसी परेशानियाँ उत्पन्न हो जाती हैं जिनमें डेंटल ट्रीटमेंट की आवश्यकता होती है. दांतों से प्लाक और टार्टर हटाने के लिए आप प्रोफेशनल क्लीनिंग करवा सकते हैं. कभी-कभी मसूड़ों की समस्या में रूट प्लानिंग करवानी पड़ती हैं. इससे दांतों की जड़ से बैक्टीरिया साफ हो जाते हैं.
7. चिकित्सकीय परामर्श न लेना
मसूड़ों से संबंधित समस्याओं में कई बार चिकित्सकीय परामर्श की भी आवश्यकता होती है. समय रहते चिकित्सकीय परामर्श लेना कई परेशानियों को दूर कर सकता है. लेकिन आप समय रहते चिकित्सकीय परामर्श नहीं लेंगे तो परेशानियाँ बढ़ सकती हैं. ऐसी समस्याओं में की समस्या में डॉक्टर एंटीबायोटिक्स का परामर्श भी देते हैं.
8. अन्य कारण
मसूड़ों की कई समस्याओं में कुछ घरेलू उपचार भी कारगर होते हैं. कई समस्याएं जो प्रारंभिक अवस्था में होती हैं. इन समस्याओं के उपचार में आप आंवला, नीम की पत्तियां, काली मिर्च और काला नमक जीरा, सेंधा नमक, हरड़, दालचीनी, दक्षिणी सुपारी आदि का इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं.

Hello, I have dark spots on my teeth which looks ugly. How do I clean my teeth with home remedies. Please advice me.
Hello lybrate-user! If the dark spots that you have are stains and not caries on your teeth then Scaling and polishing done by your dentist will help you resolve the problem of staining/dark spots. Since you have asked about home remedies, why do not you try brushing your teeth with paste made up of baking soda and lemon, twice a week. For more detailed and step by step guidance you can contact me.

Few advice to stop bleeding gums-- - visit to a dentist for professional cleaning once in a year - use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water to keep the area clean. - avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums.

Replacement Of Missing Teeth!

Replacement Of Missing Teeth!

Why to replace missing teeth ?

Tooth Shifting: When you lose a tooth, the surrounding teeth begin drifting into the open gap, shifting your teeth out of alignment. What once was a straight smile can quickly turn into crooked teeth

TMJ Syndrome: When teeth shift out of alignment after tooth loss, bite problems usually develop. When the upper and lower jaws don’t meet properly, it strains and damages the jaw joint (TMJ).

Gum Disease/Tooth Decay: Once teeth shift out of alignment, it is harder to reach some spots with your toothbrush or floss. When plaque and bacteria aren’t reached, tooth decay and periodontal disease develop, often causing further tooth loss.

Face Shape Alteration: When the tooth root is not replaced from a missing tooth, bone deterioration can quickly lead to face shape alteration, changing your appearance.

Best options to replace missing teeth 

Dental implants : An implant is a great way to replace a missing tooth. This solution feels and acts the most like a natural tooth when chewing, brushing or smiling.  The implant replaces the actual root of the missing tooth and heals in the bone for several months.  We then place an abutment, to which a crown will be cemented.  A major advantage is no need to alter any other teeth when placing an implant.  An implant is a great solution for a single missing tooth, and even more implants can replace many missing teeth.  When smiling or talking there is no way to tell the difference between an implant and a natural tooth.

Bridges : A bridge is an option when there are teeth on either side of the missing tooth. A bridge is a fixed solution that stays cemented in the mouth and does not come out.  This method involves cutting down the teeth on either side of the missing tooth to be able to connect them together.

Removable partial denture : A removable partial denture, which is worn during the day, can replace one or many missing teeth.  Sometimes a partial denture may need metal clasps to help it stay in the mouth.  Unfortunately, these metal clasps may be visible when speaking or smiling.  Another disadvantage of a removable partial denture is that they can move a little when speaking or eating, which can be uncomfortable.

4 Different Types Of Braces And Which Is Right For You

4 Different Types Of Braces And Which Is Right For You

If you are advised to wear braces, it could be due to crooked / improperly positioned teeth which are not cosmetically pleasing or are not very efficiently chewing the food. Today, there is a big variety of braces available to correct the problems. Although all braces serve a similar purpose, but not all braces are suitable for everyone. Here, I am trying to explain some of the types of braces available, which will help you in a better understanding of braces. 

  1. Metal braces: These braces are placed in the outer side of the teeth . A wire is then placed in the brackets which helps in realigning your teeth. This wire needs to be replaced from time to time with other wires usually the wires are replaced in 4 to 6 weeks. This type of braces are the most are the most affordable of the lot and thereby the most common choice. 
  2. Ceramic braces: These types of braces are very similar to the metal braces in terms of functionality. The advantage of ceramic braces is that they resemble the colour of the teeth and are less noticeable. These braces are costlier than their metal counterpart and take a longer time to mount. One common complaint about these braces is that they become yellowish over time. It is therefore very important to clean your teeth properly on a daily basis. 
  3. Lingual braces: Lingual braces mounted at the back of the teeth. As a result, these braces are hardly visible. They are typically recommended to those whose teeth are not very crooked and the amount of teeth straightening required is very less. These braces are ideal for those patients who require an orthodontic device for a long time. They require very good oral hygiene and are also expensive when compared to other braces. 
  4. Damon braces / Self-ligating braces: Damon braces can be mounted on any patient who is fit to get for regular braces. These braces do not require any extra attachment for holding the wire in place. The wire can straight away pass through the brackets making the treatment time shorter by a good six months or so. The healing process tends to be faster with these braces and is one of the easier ones to mount onto the teeth. 

They are costing almost close to the cost of the lingual braces. These details are to give you a broad overview of the types of fixed braces available. Your orthodontist will be able to discuss the pros and cons of each after analysing the changes needed and desired. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
