Gingivitis can be treated but requires maintenance to prevent worsening of the situation. Such cases will be assessed by clinical and radiographic examination. Depending on the bone level, further management is done. Please be aware that gingivitis does not settle in one sitting. You need to see the dentist every six months and undergo procedures as and when required.

It depends on degree of tooth breakage and from which level it has broken. Many times a post and core (pin in root canal) can restore the tooth followed by a cap on the tooth.

You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

This is a gum disease which advances with time and it comes to a stage when teeth become loose. As well. You have to get teeth cleaning done by dentist. And later he might advice you for a full mouth xray. To understand the level of the bone. And then accordingly some advance procedures may be advised to you. Usually if there is bleeding you can use a mouthwash for a month. Rinse two times daily. Or else if bleeding in gums does not subside. Kindly visit dentist.

Adult teeth have a slight yellowish tinge, go for professional cleaning of teeth, this will remove any stains and calculus on the teeth which might be making teeth more yellow. If you are not satisfied with the shade of your teeth after professional cleaning, go for bleaching.

Dental Implants - Types and Benefits

BDS, FICOI, MDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Dental implants are a type of a treatment that is carried out to replace missing teeth. During the process of extracting a damaged tooth, the root and the crown are removed. So, a dental implant involves placing a tooth on a precise titanium insert which is surgically placed on the jawbone. These supporting inserts are placed in the jawbone because they fuse with the jawbone (similar to orthopedic plates) and thus provide a strong foundation for the replacement teeth.

Why tooth loss matters?
A missing tooth or teeth can not only take away from the beauty of your smile, but tooth loss can also have many negative effects on your oral health, including:

Bone loss
Shifting and drifting teeth
Bite changes
Chewing difficulty
Wearing down of remaining teeth
Changes in the jaw joint
Types of implant placement
Whether an implant is placed immediately or in 2 phases depends on a variety of factors like bone density,initial fit of the implant during surgery,the other teeth,area of jaw,loads received during chewing etc.

Dental implant placement can be of two types

Immediate single stage placement: In this type we place an implant and give you at least a temporary crown immediately,followed by a permanent crown shortly thereafter.
Delayed (2 stage) Implants: Such a placement is usually to safeguard the implant from any early forces when its just healing and fusing within the bone.After the placement the implant is kept covered below the gum for 3 months and uncovered after this period to give you a permanent crown.
Benefits
Now that you know about the different types, it is time to move on to the benefits of getting these.

Long lasting: Compared to other treatments such as tooth bridges which last for 5-10 years, dental implants can last for an entire lifetime if maintained properly.The only part to replace is the crown.
Mimicking natural teeth: Your replacement teeth will feel similar to your actual teeth, so you do not need to worry about your self-image issues. Flash that wonderful smile of yours without thinking over it the second time.
Preserve surrounding teeth: When an implant is inserted in place of a missing tooth, adjacent healthy teeth are not damaged.
Comfort: Dental implants being a fixed replacement they have none of the problems that removable dentures or other substitutes may cause.Patients who replace all of their teeth with dental implants can feel more comfortable talking, smiling and eating.

My wisdom teeth is coming and causing lot of pain please suggest me what can I do.
Wisdom teeth come till 21 years of age. If it doesn't come out or partially come out then they cause problems in chewing due to pain as there is inflammation of gums surrounding the wisdom teeth. If there is no relief by mouthwashes and painkillers then they have to be removed either normally or surgically depending on the position of wisdom teeth in mouth. An x ray is usually required to have a look at position of roots in the bone surrounding the tooth. After diagnosing the problem dentist will give you appointment for removal of the tooth concerned. Dentist might prescribe you some antibiotics too depending upon the severity of infection.
