Normally spaces between the teeth can be treated and those gaps can be closed with the help of orthodontic braces. As you said, if your teeth are small or underdeveloped, after check up we can exactly say what exact treatment you require. In healthy dentition there is no need of replacement of teeth, we can treat it accordingly with advance treatment aids.

Hello doctor. How to get rid of teeth plaque and tartar? I hv that some on the back side of my teeth.
Hello lybrate-user, this plaque and tartar is layer of deposited food acted upon by residential bacteria present in the mouth. Our saliva contains minerals that hardens this layer with time. Visit a dentist for professional cleaning of your teeth called scaling. This layer is removed in the procedure and you will be able appreciate the difference. But the treatment only is not sufficient, after the treatment, you need to follow strict oral hygiene habits like brushing twice a day specially at night after dinner, rinsing your mouth after every meal, flossing your teeth for removing deposited food from in between the teeth and also cleaning of tongue. Follow up is equally important to check yourself whether you are doing it right or not so visit a dentist every 6 months for regular dental check up.

4 Easy Ways to Restore and Strengthen Tooth Enamel

Dental care is a part of human health which is often overlooked by a majority of the population. Teeth form a very important part of our body and not just for cosmetic reasons but for utilitarian reasons as well. It is important to maintain the health of our teeth at all times.

What is Tooth Enamel?

Tooth enamel is the tough outer covering of any teeth that is visible outside the gums. This is the layer which protects the nerve endings and is one of the strongest materials in the human body. This part of your teeth is especially susceptible to stress. While we eat, drink, chew, this is the layer that most exposed to damage and if eroded can cause permanent damage as well. Tooth enamel decay is mostly caused by a diet high in starches and sugar, excessive consumption of soft drinks, and excessive alcohol consumption, to name a few.

How can you keep your tooth enamel healthy and strong?

You can restore the health of your tooth enamel by implementing the following habits:

Changing to a healthy diet - Changing to a low sugar diet will definitely improve the health of your enamel besides providing fewer chemicals, which are mainly responsible for tooth enamel decay.
Using straws while consuming highly acidic drinks such a fruit juices - Straws are a great way to have highly acidic drinks like fruit juices without bothering your teeth and thus keeping enamel protected.
Keeping the body hydrated - It is also important to keep the body hydrated to allow the formation of saliva properly. People with dry mouth often suffer from issues related to the tooth enamel and the best way to prevent it from happening this is by drinking plenty of water.
Using a fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash - Using mouthwashes and toothpaste containing fluoride helps in building up tooth enamel as well helps in keeping teeth healthy.

Your Bridge can be easily removed without any major risk to your natural teeth by cutting the bridge in pieces. You will surely end up losing the bridge but the risk to natural teeth will be minimised. Once your bridge is removed the exact cause of pain can be ascertained and treated before placing new crowns.

Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily constitute the basics of good oral hygiene. Keeping other parts of your mouth, such as your gums, healthy can benefit your overall health by preventing the spread of germs and disease.

this is due to improper brushing technique. although you brush twice a day but you are not following correct technique due to which food particles accumulate between your teeth and have resulted in cavities and calculus deposits. kindly visit a dentist for professional cleaning of your teeth as well as filling of the cavities. follow correct brushing technique and good oral hygiene habits.

What is the life period of artificial teeth ?
There is no life period for artificial teeth. It really depend on the doctor whos treating you is giving some kind of guaranty on artificial teeth which would vary from 5 years to 10 years to 15 years. No artificial teeth last for long. You would have to get them replaced eventually, if they break with time.
