Dentist,
Hello, The reason why there is maximum bleeding in the lower front teeth is there is maximum plaque and calculus formation in that region. Get a professional cleaning done and maintain a good brushing habit.

Do not use your teeth for doing something other than chewing food. Using them for cracking nuts, removing bottle tops or ripping open packaging can result in chipped or broken teeth.

Mouth is not opening due to chewing of tobacco I left it from one month but its not coming to original stage hardly two fingers r going in please suggest any medicine so that it can come to original stage please doctors help me please.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Lybrate-user it is so nice that you have discontinued the habit of chewing tobacco. Do not pick up any other habit as a substitute as you would be harming yourself. Reduced mouth opening can be due to thickening of the skin inside the mouth due to continuous irritation from tobacco and beetle nut. You need to get a thorough examination done by your dentist at the earliest. In most cases, with the discontinuation of habit, you can see a positive change in mouth opening in about 6 months time. Your dentist may prescribe you multivitamin / antioxidant medicines which you need to consume for your body to reverse the damage. Also, maintain a healthy & balanced diet. ]

Hi, to all dental phobic patients dental treatments are not painful and not risky compared to other treatments what we take, my only request is keep minimal knowledge of ur teeth when u people have any dental problem and visit a dentist , the dentist tells u the treatment take a day time and find the complete treatment details on Google this take little pain for you but don't u feel gettng a wrong treatment blindly done taking this little pain is better, though iam dentist I tell to all the patients that there r many dentists who do wrong treatments just for money, in this way I want to tell all dentists that there r dental phobic patients increasing and patients r loosing hope on dentists. The patients are paying money for there treatment so a simple honest treatment is necessary with correct diagnosis.

Implant Dentistry

MDS - Periodontology and Oral Implantology, BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Implant Dentistry

Tooth loss is a challenge for both the patient and the dentist. Patient has to deal with reduced chewing efficiency and altered appearance. The dentist, on the contrary, is faced with restoring the lost tooth to the maximum natural extent possible, functionally and structurally.

The fixed dentures came close with their ability to providing fixed teeth that were stable and aesthetically appealing. However, there was one big disadvantage, the adjacent teeth that were being used as abutment were reduced in size and therefore strength though they could be perfectly normal teeth.

In an effort to avoid this, the dental community started looking at options, the result of which was implant. Not just replacing the crown part of the tooth, even the root portion of the tooth is replaced here.
A biocompatible material, titanium, is put into the tooth to serve as the root. Titanium is strong, light, biocompatible (does not cause autoimmune reactions in the surrounding tissues) and most importantly osseointegrated (fuses to the surrounding bone). Once placed as the root, it gets absorbed into the bone after a period of about 2 to 6 months. Then, a crown or a denture is literally built on this root to simulate the natural appearance as close as possible. This provides not just the complete natural tooth structure but also provides support to the surrounding tissues like the gums and the cheeks.

Implant dentistry is a perfect example of teamwork including surgeons to operate and place the bone, prosthodontists to do the crown or the bridge, a periodontist to manage the gums health, and a lab technician who can do the finest job on the crowns or the bridges.

Types of implants:

  1. Three common types include: Single tooth replacement: In cases where a single tooth is lost, the implant would be one root that is allowed to fuse to the bone and then a crown is placed over it.
  2. Fixed multiple teeth replacements: If more than one tooth is lost, then bridges are fabricated by placing one or more implants and then custom-made crowns are placed over these implants.
  3. Removable implant supported complete denture: If all the lower teeth are missing, implants could be placed at pre-identified locations and then a complete denture fabricated over it. This is commonly done in lower jaws as stability is always a cause for concern.

Contraindications:
The success of the implant requires good bone health. The most common contraindications would be patients with chronic diseases like poorly controlled diabetes, cancer in the line of jaws, chronic smoking, or poor periodontal health.

However, if managed well, even these patients can have implants after a detailed assessment by the dental team.

How many times I have to brush my teeth?

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist,
How many times I have to brush my teeth?
A minimim of 2 times brushing is required. Brushing after every major meal of the day is good too. Atleast rinse well after anyrhing you consume. Ask your dentist to guide thru the method of brushing which is very important. Most of us brush in a wrong way.

Dear Sir, Mera teeth ka colour yellow bahut dino se hai hum dentist se wash bhi kraye par yellow remove nahi ho saka to kiya koi option hai aaj ka date me jis se mera teeth ka yellow colour ko remove kiya ja sake. Agar hai available to kitna rupees invest hoga pura solution hone me please btaye.

Dear Sir,
Mera teeth ka colour yellow bahut dino se hai hum dentist se wash bhi kraye par yellow remove nahi ho saka ...
The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.
