Hello. Root canal treatment is a painless procedure. It can be done in single sitting or in some cases 3 to 4 sittings are needed. That depends on severity of infection. Normally we ask patients not to bite any hard food during the procedure. As tooth may get fracture. But once the crown is placed on rct treatment tooth. You can take normal food.

Fruits and vegetables like apple, corn and carrots, which can create difficulty in chewing and would need continous biting should be considerably avoided while undergoing orthodontic treatment.

What are dental implant? how safe they are? what is the advantage of an implant?

Whenever, there is a missing tooth, earlier the treatment was to replace it with a plastic denture or with a fixed bridge. A denture requires ugly wires to hold it in place and for the bridge process, cutting the neighbouring healthy teeth is required, in order to provide support to it.

Both had limitations with respect to the number of teeth that could be replaced.

A dental implant is nothing, but a screw made of pure titanium and is fixed in the jaw bone. They are a 100% safe, provided the surgery is well planned and executed keeping the patient's overall medical health in mind and with specific attention given to the amount of remaining bone in the jaw.

Implants can be used to replace a single tooth or many missing teeth. Even if you have no teeth remaining, implants can be used to support a complete denture, thus making them secure and firm in fit.

The entire procedure is relatively painless as it is done under local anaesthesia and within 3 to 6 months with some additional measurements, your dentist will be able to fabricate custom-made teeth for you that allow you to chew and talk just like before!

Keep in mind that along with regular check up, good maintenance on your part as a patient with good hygiene habits, your implants could last for many years. In our practice we have replaced single teeth, multiple missing teeth and entirely missing sets including those with complete dentures for patients from the age of 30 to 85! there is no reason for you not to get a satisfactory result with dental implants!

Hello, tartar or deposits or stains can be removed by scaling and polishing. Brush twice a day. Night brushing is important. Floss regularly, rinse after every meal.

TMJ pain can be due to misalignment (malocclusion) of or trauma to the teeth or jaw, teeth grinding (bruxism), poor posture, stress or anxiety, arthritis and other inflammatory musculoskeletal disorders, orthodontic braces, and excessive gum chewing. the treatment will vary depending on your condition. apply ice pack on the outer region. try some relaxation exercise for jaw muscles. meditation has to be done to reduce stress level. take soft diet n avoid chewing gums. consult a maxillofacial surgeon for complete diagnosis n treatment planning .

Hello, yellow teeth could be because of deposits on your teeth. Get your scaling and polishing done from a dentist. Brush twice daily, floss regularly and rinse after every meal.

Dear lybrate user, rinse your mouth with warm salt water 3-4 times daily to reduce the swelling. Take a pain killer if required. Avoid brushing hard in that area. Buy a soft toothbrush and save your teeth and gums by brushing gently using proper technique.

Hello lybrate-user, the gap between the teeth is also corrected with braces and this is a universal treatment for such cases. Yes, braces treatment is quite costlier but it is a permanent solution. Other treatment is cosmetic treatment consisting of tooth colored filling but is not successful for larger spaces. You better visit a dentist and take the opinion because without seeing it, it's too difficult to advise the exact treatment. Moreover, braces goes for any case.

Sugary foods should be consumed in limited quantities as the bacteria in dental plaque changes them into acids.

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.

There are so many causes of mouth ulcers like- -stress or tissue injury is thought to be the cause of simple mouth ulcers. -certain foods, including citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables (such as lemons, oranges, pineapples, apples, figs, tomatoes and strawberries), can trigger a mouth ulcer. -sometimes a sharp tooth surface also trigger mouth ulcers. -some cases of complex mouth ulcers are caused by an underlying health condition, such as an impaired immune system; nutritional problems, such as vitamin b-12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency and gastrointestinal tract disease, such as coeliac disease and crohn's disease. -when you first quit smoking, you may develop more mouth ulcers than normal, but this is temporary. Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief.

Do visit a dentist for proper diagnosis, share the reports with me. In case possible, will help you in treating your problem.
