Only medicine won't help. For immediate pain relief dissolve 2 tabs of ketorol dt in half cup of water and drink it. And if pain is cavity related then get your root canal treatment done and if it is associated with wisdom pain then you will have to get it removed. In any case, only medicine won't help, consult dentist. Get sell soon.

I have a lot of cavity and needs a lot of scaling.Is there any possibility to clean the teeth thoroughly without losing the enamel and fill the cavities.Please note that I am 59 years old.

One of the side effect of your medicine is dry mouth, hence you are having high carious risk. The latest treatment trend in dentistry is minimal invasive techniques, so only the area that is having cavity is treated.

Hello, sir my father have been recovered from cancer that is 1st n 2nd stage in neck behind the tongue he has been recover last year by month of september'2014. But still now he is not getting any taste while eating anything. He cannot eat spicy things. His tongue always remain dry due to saliva destroy, so how can he will be able to eat every thing specialy spicy.

Hello, I am inclined to believe that your father has undergone surgical procedure for a tongue cancer that had progressed to a 2nd stage! well let me try and explain to you in a very simple language about what has progressed and what cab be done. For a tonge cancer in the 2nd stage of neck nodal involvement the surgery involves the surgical removal of the affected part of the tongue with a safe margin of at least one centimeter around the lesion. Also due to the spread of the cancer cells to the neck lymph nodes even those have to be removed. This becomes an extensive procedure and some times the major part of the tongue needs to be removed. So a reconstruction of the tongue is planned where in some other body tissue is used to reconstruct the tongue. Also radiation therapy is also additionally given to the tongue area to completely kill the cancer cells. All these procedures will destroy some health cells also and majority of them which are on the surface are salivary cells which get destroyed. The nerves of the tongue also get affected and hence the loss of taste. The problem of dryness of the tongue will be persistent for a long time to come and there are chances even if very minute that these salivary glands might grow back and get back to normal function. But in the mean while he could use salivary substitutes that are available to keep his tongue moist. His taste sensation should also keep improving over time. Keep up the regular check ups with the doctor and ask him the details of the salivary substitute and the condition of the nerves supplying the tongue. Any queries I am willing to answer after you have given me more details about the procedure that was carried out. Thanks regards Dr. Siddharth bhalerao mds (oral and maxillofacial surgeon)

Gum diseases can be treated and reversed in their initial stages very easily. By getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed by a dentist, there is a chance that they can get better without much ado.

What Are Dental Implants

What Are Dental Implants

People loose lose their teeth for various reasons ranging from gum diseases, bone loss conditions,dental cavities, injuries and age. A missing tooth, particularly at the front of your mouth, can lead to changes in your smile and loss of confidence. Apart from aesthetic reasons, a missing tooth also impacts the way you talk, and eat your food. Over time, the bone mass which was supporting the tooth starts eroding and causes the loosening of your neighboring teeth. To prevent this and regain the confidence of a beautiful smile, most people, as well as doctors, prefer dental implants.

Why are dental implants the preferred option?

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth since they are the closest thing to getting back your original pearly whites. Most patients prefer implants to other tooth replacement options like dentures and dental bridges since they offer the maximum stability and durability. Patients maintaining their dental implants properly can expect them to last around 25-30 years and even more. Besides looking like real teeth, they also function like your natural ones. That alone is the reason why so many people consider them.

Now let's understand what are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium metal posts which are used to replace the roots of a missing tooth and support a custom made crown. They are placed in your jawbone through a minor surgical procedure that is done under local anesthesia at your doctor's chamber. To replace your missing tooth with an implant, the dentist will attach a crown that takes the place of your visible tooth. After your implant has fused with your jaw bone and healed, the crown will be changed to a permanent one that matches the colour of your teeth flawlessly. This process can be used to replace a single tooth or a number of teeth. Unlike bridges and dentures, crowns which are fitted to these implants do not shift or slip. The secure fit gives a more natural look. It also gives comfort while speaking and chewing food.

Is a dental implant very painful?

A dental implant is as painful as any other procedure done by your dentist, for eg a filling. Done under local anesthesia, an implant does not leave any open wound so the healing process is quicker. Minor discomfort after the placement of the implants can be relieved through normal painkillers like ibuprofen. Depending on which part of the mouth you have lost your tooth, your dental implant procedure should take less than an hour to complete.

Healthy gums for implants

If one is considering going for an implant, then you must know that implants need healthy gums with enough bone support. Oral hygiene is of utmost importance and regular dental visits should be made so as to ensure long term success of the implants.

Care of the Implants:

Usually dental implants are very successful and here are few steps to help you take care of them to get long term benefits:

  • Good oral hygiene: Brush twice a day and make flossing a routine. Use of interdental brushes
  • can help clean the areas around the implant.
  • Abstain from smoking as it can make your bones weak and result in implant failure.
  • Avoid putting too much pressure on the implants: Eating food items like gums and candies can
  • break the crown of both artificial and natural teeth.
  • Visit your dentist every six months.

If you wish to discuss about any specific dental problem, you can consult a dentist and ask a free question.

FIND YOUR RIGHT BRUSH!!!!!
Have you ever wondered what to look when you are shopping for a right brush for yourself. We always read the contents, calorie intake etc etc when you buy something to eat but then why choose anything when it comes to taking care of your oral hygiene.
So, here are some tips you need to observe while buying a toothbrush for yourself
1. It should always be SOFT TOOTHBRUSH- No matter how delicate it might look , remember you are cleaning your teeth not your clothes. So never buy a hard or a medium brush. This is always written on either extreme top or extreme bottom of the toothbrush you are buying. Remember, it should be a soft toothbrush.
2. Any branded company recognised by the American Dental Association will do . I am not promoting a brand but remember to choose a good company because that will usually follow the guidelines followed by ADA to design a toothbrush.
3. Have additional features- Features you need are Gum Stimulators( for massaging the gums), 360 degree cleaning . If you are wearing braces, make sure you have a specially designed orthodontic brush for yourself.

So, i hope next time if i see you in the grocery store you know what to buy..

Chewing a sugarless gum after your meal for around 20 minutes freshens your breath and also make the leftover food particles cling to it.

Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. You may need deep cleaning, polishing along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or capping. 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.
