I have 3 children having age 19, 16 (both girls) and 14 son. On what age bracellas for tooth is appropriate ?

Certified BPS Dentist, Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Raipur
Normal age for fixed orthodontics is 12-13 yrs but in some cases myofunctional appliances are required somewhere between 8-10 yrs of age. Ideally I think orthodontic assessment should start at the age of 8-10 years.

Root canal axis opening can be done to get instantaneous relief from pain, if the tooth is firm with enough tooth structure. High blood sugar levels has got nothing to do with root canal treatment procedures. However it matters for extraction of root stumps. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. 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.

If the tooth breaks, have the tooth contoured. Fill the crack in. Place a crown on your tooth. If the tooth has been badly damaged and the nerve or pulp is exposed, the dentist may have to perform a root canal to save the tooth. If the tooth has been severely damaged, it may have to be extracted.

Sensitivity will come down with a sensitive paste like sensodyne. Apply over affected area for three to five minutes after which just brush with same paste. Use for a minimum period of two weeks, if sensitivity doesnt subside. Then kindly get yourself checked by dentist.

I am 33 years old female having a dental problem. My upper front tooth are protruding outside creating problem in conversations. What should I do?

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS, Medicine
Dentist, Mohali
Well you can go for orthodontic treatment ie braces. If your not willing for braces then you have to go for reshaping of your protruding teeth, treatment involves 1) you have to get root canal done of the protruding teeth then a crown or bridges of desired shape can be placed upon. Treatment is permanent

Looking for a dental floss for everyday use? Here you go! The Nylon (or multifilament) floss made up of many strands of nylon and available in various flavours works excellently in removing plaque and debris from the mouth if used properly because it has a tendency of getting torn between teeth with tight contact points.

I have mouth ulcers from 25 days. I have consulted with 3 doctors. And they have given me all type of medicines and gels. I can't eat properly. Can't talk. Please suggest some useful tip or medicine.

Hi. Ulcers can be really painful. Do you have multiple small ulcers or some big ulcers or they just come n go. To get rid of ulcers, we have know the reason and the kind of ulcers. Also if you can share the medicines you are taking, then we can figure out type of ulcer you have. Also one reason for ulcers is stress known as stress induced ulcers which no medicine can treat. So discuss in detail regarding ulcer so that we can find a solution or you can share a pic of ulcer to have clinical view.

During orthodontic treatment, suffering from pain and soreness in the mouth is quite common. To lessen the degree of it, the patient can gargle with  8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. It will surely dull the pain and provide some relief.

I undergone rct in 2008 now crown is out, what are implications for not fixing another crown?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), BDS
Dentist, Patna
If you don't get a crown fixed then there are very high chances that the tooth will break. This is because a tooth becomes brittle after getting RCT done.

Hello lybrate-user, your both problems are not related to each other. Your tooth is having sensitivity problem. For that you can use sensitivity tooth paste like sensodyne, sensoform or shy-nm. Your gums are infected that why they are bleeding. For that you have to go for proffesional cleaning. After cleaning also you have to maintain your oral hygiene at home.

No home remedies. Lemon baking soda might abrade your teeth and make them sensitive. See a dentist. Get cleaning done. 30 mins procedure.
