Brushing technique

Brushing technique
Brush your teeth gently with little toothpaste (pea size toothpaste enough). Hard brushing abrades the protective layer of tooth (enamel). Tooth abrasion leads to decay and sensitivity in tooth.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical, gum strengthening procedures. You may consult me in person too. 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.

Quit habits strictly. Seems like you have oral submucous fibrosis (osmf). Kindly consult an oral & maxillo facial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need conservative or surgical management for mouth opening depending upon the stage of osmf. Advise full mouth opening, ballooning exercise & side to side movement of the jaw. Wrap 25 to 30 ice-cream sticks, make a bundle, put it between upper & lower front teeth for 15 minutes thrice a day increase 1 sticks each day.

BDS
Dentist, Pune
Please specify the kind of pain you get i.E pain on biting only or otherwise a continous kind of pain. If it is just on biting then may be just the crown is high just get it adjusted and if it is continous then the root canal is improperly done get an x ray done of the tooth to confirm.

tooth colour changes with age. not only smoking and drinking, but our food habits are also responsible for this. also our oral hygiene practices cause huge difference. but if these stains are in patches, it may be due to fluorosis also. visit a dentist for its proper diagnosis and treatment will be given accordingly, either scaling and polishing or bleaching or veneering.

Sensitivity may be due to caries in teeth or cervical abrasion. If you have caries then you need to fill the tooth/teeth. Or if you have mild abrasions then you may ho for sensitivity toothpastes. If abrsions are severe then you may need to fill that.

There is not any word like almost. You should completely stop gutkha first. Start more and more intake of red tomatoes, vitamins, protein, salad in diet. Start some mouth excercise like filling of air in balloon, whistling, fill air in mouth at least 3-5 times in a day. If condition is not improving 2-3weeks. Consult to doctor for advance treatments.

Missing Teeth and Problems Associated With It

BDS, Masters in Immediate Loading Implants, Digital Smile Degin , Fellowship in Implantology

Missing Teeth and Problems Associated With It

A loss of tooth or teeth is one of the biggest dental problems that someone can face. The irony is that people consider loss of teeth to be very insignificant. But in reality loss of teeth can lead to not only cosmetic problems, but also functional problems and an unstable chewing mechanism.

Loss of teeth can lead to many problems. Some of them are:

  1. Supra eruption of opposing teeth
  2. Compromised efficiency of chewing
  3. Adjacent teeth might drift into the space created by missing teeth
  4. Food tend to accumulate between teeth, which have moved
  5. Food accumulation also leads to periodontal disease and caries
  6. A lopsided chewing pattern as there is loss of equilibrium in the mechanism of chewing
  7. The extracted area might reveal a loss of bone height
  8. Problems of the temporomandibular joints, like closed bite and TMJ osteoarthritis
  9. The existing functional teeth might lead to problems due to overload
  10. There are increased chances of cheek biting due to collapse of the cheek in the missing space, thus leading to functional and cosmetic problems
  11. The frequency of tongue biting and ulceration might increase in the area of missing teeth or tooth

When missing teeth are replaced, one can easily restore the healthy look of the teeth and also prevent any other dental problems which are due to the missing teeth.

While replacement of the missing teeth it is of utmost importance that the equilibrium is maintained with the distribution of the forces caused by chewing. Care is also taken that the cosmetic outlook is also maintained in the treatment.  

Ideally the teeth when extracted or lost should be immediately replaced. This is because the replacement prevents the bone resorption or bone loss in the area and also retains the good bone. But a drawback is that such an immediate replacement might lead to limitation. Immediate treatment is usually done with the help of implants which easily fit in the sockets created by extraction. But even for this an analysis of the bone and gum health is necessary, thus leading to only a few instances for such replacements. Other alternative is that immediate removable dentures can be prepared and these can be replaced once the gums of the area have healed. The time period for this is usually 3 months. If these need to be fixed permanently then a waiting period of 3 months is mandatory for the settling and healing of the gums and bone of the area.

The 3 basic ways of fixing missing teeth are through implants, fixed bridgework (bridges and crowns) and dentures, which can be removed.

Sometimes teeth become sensitive after getting a filling done. If the problem persists for more than 2-3 days, visit your dentist for knowing exact cause and remedy of the sensitivity.
