Exact kind of rct depends upon the vitality of the tooth and in turn the potential for root development. Thus the" capping" may be immediately or deferred. Consult your dentist and he shall advise you best. Exact kind of rct depends upon the vitality of the tooth and in turn the potential for root development.

Dear Lybrate user, Please visit your dentist and get the tooth checked. The pain could be a reaction to the impact and may subside in sometime, or the tooth could be damaged, which will be apparent after an X-ray. There is no tablet that can treat the condition. Please visit your dentist at the earliest.

After removing your braces, your orthodontist would have given you retainers to wear. You need to wear them regularly. Since your spaces are already opening up you can get your retainers checked and tightened/ adjusted by your orthodontist and continue wearing them regularly 24*7 for at least 6 months and then continue with night time wear later on.

Sir, I am 23 year old male. My one of upper front teeth is moved just 90' in childhood. It is very embracing me. Can I change this permanently. Will it be helpful. Please.

Hi, I guess you are trying to tell that your teeth is misaligned (irregularly placed). In that case you will require orthodontic treatment (braces treatment). It will take about one or two years for the treatment to complete and I am sure you' ll look better. Regards dr. Avinash. B. S

Mouthwash - Should You Really Use Them?

Mouthwash - Should You Really Use Them?

Who doesn’t love the smell and the freshness of a mouthwash splashing across their oral cavities?

Many agree that the first thing that comes to their mind when they want to eliminate bad breath is to use a good mouth wash. Moreover, mouthwash has moved over to other realms and are now actively fighting gum and tooth problems along with their elder cousin, a toothpaste. However, there exists some scepticism that prolonged usage of mouthwash may not be good for your health. Let us look at some definitions in detail.

Can mouthwash reduce bad breath?
Yes, a mouthwash can temporarily restrict bad breath, but it is never a permanent solution. A good oral hygiene comes from regular brushing and flossing practice and these are still the best ways to curb bad breath from its root. Mouth rinses are used for a variety of reasons: to freshen up breath, to help prevent or control tooth decay, and to reduce plaque

Is it necessary to use mouthwash?
A mouthwash is not mandatory to give a good oral health. An effective routine of brushing and flossing your teeth is enough to take care of good oral hygiene. Mouthwash is like an add-on to your oral care regime and is definitely not an alternative for brushing and flossing.

Advantages of using a mouthwash
A mouthwash can easily go into places between your teeth and gums and can help remove food particles that might have missed when you brushed. It can be used to kill bad odour of your mouth temporarily and can freshen up your breath. In some cases, a mouthwash may be recommended to treat infection, reduce inflammation and relieve pain

Disadvantages of using a Mouthwash
Most of the mouthwash contain a high amount of alcohol content in them and their prolonged usage is not safe for your mouth. In some cases, alcohol causes sensitivity to the root surface of your teeth and this may lead to adverse effect on the senses of your teeth. Mouthwash is strictly meant for spitting and accidental consumption may not be good for your health. They actually contain products that can be very harmful if taken in large amounts. It is generally not advised for children and even adults can limit their usage to twice a day. Always check with your dentist before you take up and use a mouth wash. It is also best if you can opt for a homemade mouthwash that has natural ingredients in them for taking care of your bad breath. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

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...

I am suffering from sore mouth since 10 days and My stomach is also upset because of that what should I do for that.

I am suffering from sore mouth since 10 days and My stomach is also upset because of that what should I do for that.
If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

Hello Lybrate user, in periodontal diseases, first scaling n polishing should be done. You are supposed to use mouthwash twice daily.

Do you floss daily along with brushing and tongue cleaning? If not, your teeth can suffer from tooth decay and gum diseases due to plaque-build up.

I have a different type of problem in teeth. Actually i went through cleaning of teeth by a intern dentist 3 mnths ago. Problem is severe cold and some sensations in teeth. When it came in contact with air,it felt actually.

MDS - Periodontics
Dentist, Yamunanagar
Dear , The sensitivity to cold is a common problem after tooth cleaning. It is not due to the procedure but due to the exposure of the sensitive part of tooth (Root), which takes place after the removal of calculus (Tartar in common language). Anyhow lets treat it. Buy Colgate Sensitive Pro Relief or Sensodyne or Sensodent KF or Thermoseal RA (either of them) toothpaste. Apply the paste, with the help of finger, to the outer and inner surfaces of teeth (especially in the teeth with sensitivity) and let it be there for 15- 20 minutes. Then take your toothbrush, wet. As paste is already there in mouth, brush your teeth with very soft hand. It is just like everyday brushing, only difference being that you have apply the paste for some time before you brush your teeth. As the paste already there, no need of applying paste to the brush. It will take almost three to 4 weeks, for the sensitivity to completely subside. It can subside early also, but if doesn't wait for 4 weeks. If you don't get relief upto 4 weeks, then go to a Periodontist. Now I will come to the harder part. In your case, I feel Periodontitis (Pyorrhea) has set in.As a result only scaling (cleaning of teeth) won't suffice. You have to seek the opinion of a Periodontist (Gum specialist) is definitely required. The reason being Pyorrhea being a very slow destruction of bone supporting your teeth, you will realize the actual difficulty when no or minimal bone will be left and your teeth becoming loose. At that stage saving your natural teeth will not be possible or in a compromised state. On the other hand if you undergo complete treatment, and follow the instructions properly then, you will never loose your teeth. Just make sure you consult a Periodontist. Till the Good Luck and Good Bye.

Eating and drinking naturally weakens the enamel on your teeth and brushing straight afterwards can cause tiny particles of enamel to be brushed away. It is best not to brush your teeth until at least one hour after eating.
