Your mouth opening is less than 50 percent and it is very difficult to get access to 3rd molar in this case. If condition is acute and painful then surgical extraction from external side is only option because oral submucous fibrosis takes time to get treated. If impacted tooth is not causing any problem in that case firstly oral submucous fibrosis can be treated with medicines and local injections and physiotherapy.

My teeth are yellowish since childhood. I took laser whitening 3 months ago which somewhat improved my teeth's colour but not completely and by today my teeth are again turning yellowish though I have been using whitening toothpaste regularly. Is laser not a permanent solution? Besides this treatment what more can I do to protect my teeth's colour?

Can a root canal be done on the wisdom tooth? As I have both the wisdom tooth having hole and would want to fill it up and if require I am ok with root canal also. Doctors advise to take the wisdom tooth out but I do not want to loose my wisdom tooth. In one of the wisdom tooth, 15 years back a root canal was done but the silver filing came out. Please suggest a way to salvage wisdom tooth without it to take out.

the yellow colour may be internal or external. External may be because of deposits on your teeth from regular food stuff. Get a professional cleaning done and use a whitening toothpaste. Your dentist may be able to guide you further if the yellow colour is internal.

Hai I am 26 years old, in an accident I lost my teeth, I heard that we can regenerate teeth using stemcells of wisdom tooth, is it possible, if it is possible how much the cost will be per tooth. I have already a bridge, but I want natural looking teeth, and I know about dental implants, but I do not want to put artificial things in my mouth.

No you shouldn't use them now. Ortho treatment do in proper sequence otherwise the treatment will go wrong. Bands place after the extractions. So the canines go back by supporting molars.

I am going in for silver filling. How can it affect my oral health further?

PDCR, BDS

Mr. aditya silver filling was the best of old days...but now with changing concepts u should prefer tooth coloured restorations... Some disadvantages of silver filling are: 1. It contains mercury which is poison for our body. 2. It bonds to tooth mechanically that means v have to give a proper shape to the cavity for silver filling which leads to more loss of your healthy tooth structure.. 3. As silver alloy is metal, and our oral cavity contains saliva so it can lead to rusting in filling leading to deterioration of filling margin which furthur leads to caries below filling, known as secondary caries. 4. Discoloration of tooth Now a days there are very gud materials available for filling u shud go with glass ionomer cement or composite filling.

Eating supari (betel nut) or tabacco causes development of condition known as oral submucous fibrosis which is also precancerous sign so better consult dentist as soon as possible so that he/ she can do proper screening of your sign and advice you proper exercises for your limited mouth opening.

There are many causes of yellow or discolored teeth. A few of the most common: 1.Drinks: Coffee and red wine cause major damage to teeth.. But other drinks with high acidity, such as soda, juices and even sports drinks can cause staining on the teeth. Even white wine is not far behind in staining our teeth yellow, because its tannins and acidic nature wear away at the tooth enamel.These Acidic drinks lowers the Ph of teeth below 6 thus causing corrosive wear and tear of teeths. 2.Certain Foods: Colored candies, popsicles and other bright foods can cause staining over time. Think of it this way – if your tongue turns a bright shade of blue, chances are your teeth are getting some of that discoloration, too. Even healthy foods such as berries (blueberries, cranberries, raspberries) can stain teeth. Ketchup, curry and other sauces can cause staining problems over time, too. 3,Natural Aging Process: Quite simply, teeth yellow over time. It’s a natural part of the aging process that the white protective coatings wear down over time. So the longer you have your teeth, the more likely they are to become yellow or discolored. 4.Most of us are guilty of at least some of the above (and none of us can stop time). But the good news is that even if red wine is one of your vices and your teeth look yellower lately, there are things you can do to bring back the white. 5.How to make Teeth white (a)Avoid Certain Foods/Drinks When Possible: We’re not asking you to give up your morning coffee, just to reduce the intake of the above foods as much as possible. Sometimes simply being aware can help us make better choices. (b)Drink Water: After you’ve consumed a tooth-staining food or drink try to immediately follow it with a glass of water. Swirling water around your mouth can drastically help clear away the acids or staining. This simple step is free and easy, and can drastically help reduce tooth discoloration. (c)Proper Dental Hygiene: Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental checkups help keep teeth healthy for a lifetime. Develop these habits early and you’re less likely to have dental problems down the line. (d)Teeth Whitening: The good news is that there are many options available to whiten teeth. Some can be done at home while others can take help of Homoeopathic medicines. Homoeopathic medicine HEKLA LAVA TOOTH POWDER ( WHEEZAL) Scrub teeth daily night RINSEOUT ( SBL) Gargles 20 drops in 20 ml luke warm water.Gargles 3 times daily while holding water for 20 seconds in mouth esp.after meals.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.
