You can go for an orthodontic treatment to get your teeth to be corrected. You can think for aligners which is recent and invisible braces treatment option.

Ways in Which Dentures Can Improve a Person's Life?

Ways in Which Dentures Can Improve a Person's Life?

Dentures are prosthetic devices and their purpose is to replace missing teeth. Dentures are basically false teeth, which are supported by the tissues of the oral cavity. Most dentures are removable, while some are permanently fixed. Dentures are widely used by people all over the world, who have missing teeth.

Here are the ways in which dentures can improve a person's life:

  1. Speaking becomes clearer: Missing teeth make it difficult for a person to speak clearly. Using dentures will fix this problem and you will be able to speak clearly and properly as dentures take place of the natural teeth. It takes some time to get adjusted to dentures and many people practice pronunciation of difficult words in front of the mirror after getting dentures fitted in their mouth.
  2. You can eat normally again: Missing teeth cause difficulty in eating and you are unable to eat many of your favorite dishes, which require strong teeth. After getting a denture fitted, you can get back to eating all sorts of foods again and biting or chewing won't be difficult anymore. This too takes some time to adjust and in the beginning, you should eat soft foods by cutting them into small pieces. You should abstain from having chewing gums or hard food initially.
  3. Your self esteem gets improved: Losing teeth makes you look bad and many people feel embarrassed or ashamed because of missing teeth. A denture is a perfect remedy for this. After getting dentures, your teeth will be back and will look and feel natural. There is usually no worry about the dentures falling off or slipping out as they are fitted properly in the gums. You will look good, and the lost confidence will be back.
  4. You will have improved oral health: Missing teeth cause health problems, such as bone loss in the jaw area. To avoid this from happening, dentures should be used. These teeth implants will replace your old teeth, and bone loss will be prevented.
  5. You will appear younger: Missing teeth alter the structure of your face. Wrinkles might appear or the face may seem to look collapsed, then dentures can effectively support the structure of your face and make it appear to be more youthful with added fullness.

Dentures improve the quality of a person's life greatly with missing teeth. They should be taken care of properly, cleaned regularly and you should have regular dentist appointments to ensure a proper fit of the denture. If you wish to discuss about any specific dental problem, you can consult a specilized dentist and ask a free question.

Hi lybrate-user, yeah there could be few options for you like braces treatment followed by replacement of missing lateral incisors or only cosmetic treatment of front teeth with veneers or bridges. Cost would vary depending on type of treatment, there is a wide range starting from 20000 to 80000.

All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist.

Why use Sealants?

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Why use Sealants?

Dental sealants are barriers that can protect one's teeth from developing cavities. Made out of plastic material, there are usually applied to the molars and premolars at the back of the mouth.

How are dental sealants applied?

  • The teeth on which the sealant is to be applied is cleaned properly and then dried. A solution containing acid is applied on the teeth to make the surface rough, as this helps the sealant bond well with the teeth.
  • Then the teeth are rinsed, following which they are dried. Finally, the sealant is applied. At times, a special light is used to make the sealant dry easily.

Reasons to use dental sealants:

  • The chewing surfaces of the teeth are aided by dental sealants. Sealants are thin coatings that are painted on those areas.
  • One main reason for using sealants would be that even though brushing and flossing can remove the food particles stuck in the grooves of the teeth, at times some particles may be left behind. Sealants can prevent this.
  • The sealant spreads over the enamel in the grooves of the teeth, acting as a shield. This prevents food particles from getting stuck in the pits and fissures of the teeth. When such food particles are stuck in the grooves of the teeth, cavities are likely to form. Applying sealants can prevent this.
  • Children, who are at a greater risk of developing cavities, are often advised to use dental sealants to prevent their teeth from decay and damage.
  • Adults whose teeth have suffered considerable decay may seek the help of sealants to protect them.
  • Adults who have had fillings done in their teeth cavities may also apply sealants in order to prevent any further damage in the near or distant future.

I have bad breath problem, whenever I open my mouth after eating something, my mouth starts bad breathing, help me.

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Jodhpur
Start using a mouthwash after any meal, cause brush only clean 50% area of oral cavity rest 50% require mouthwash. So add mouthwash along with brush in your daily oral health regime, make sure to choose a mouthwash that can be use on long term basis cause many mouthwash on long term use may cause side effect. And I also advice you to visit a dentist for professional cleaning.

The type of treatment you have for toothache /sensitivity/swelling 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 / sensitivity/swelling is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling 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 / sensitivity/swelling 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.

Hi teeth can be black may be because of two reasons like either tooth is dead or due to any staining. If tooth is dead rct is the option or any discolouration or staining then bleaching is the option. You need to be investigated and diagnosed for proper treatment plan.

Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.

Brushing with salt will not whiten teeth. It will cut the gums and rub away the outer layer of the tooth because it is so abrasive. Your teeth may look whiter, but they will be damaged and are likely to need repair.

You are giving right treatment by providing him with vitamin b and c. But we have to check for reason of ulcers. Ulcers can be removed only by treating the reason. Are the ulcers painful? please visit nearby dentist for oral examination to diagnose the problem.

I hope you don't blindly take medications before having a proper consultation with a dentist. It seems to be like an infection with origin from that decayed tooth. Antibiotics and pain killers will only be a temporary relief. You will have to go for the appropriate treatment. Share pics/xray for a detailed report.

What is best alternate available to implant as I am afraid of getting it done. I am 50 yr old. Gums are not too good, my doctor told me that implant is possible. Please advice, today I am using removable denture for upper 2 front teeth.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Options for replacing missing teeth are 1. Removable dentures (u are currently using) 2. Fixed partial dentures (wherein we take support from adjacent teeth provided they are strong enough to give support) 3. Implant. Sir, implants are placed under anaesthesia hence painless and will not take more than 45 mins. If you trust your doc and his abilities, give him your nod and let him try and gv you permanently fixed teeth.

There are many reasons for that but one of the main reason is gum disease. So visit dentist for scalling.
