My dentist has recently extracted my one pre molar tooth and I have received Rct in the adjoining front tooth. What will be better for me a teeth bridge or an implant? My age is 18 years .what should be the cost of implant or bridge?

Dentist, Pune
Hello, you need to visit a dentist and get it checked. Get a full mouth x-ray done to check the bone levels. Depending on that you can go for fixed prosthesis or implant. For bridge the neighbouring two teeth will also have to be reduced in size. Its better to go for an implant. The cost can range from Rs. 15,000-40,000/-.

I have cavities in my teeth for last few years and always need tooth pick after eating food. I want to ho for filling but heard that it will need to be repeated every 1 year or so. Is it better to get filling or extract these molars? Does it hurt during filling? How long does the filling last? How soon can I start to eat after the filling? Thanks.

Filling do not hurt. There are many advanced matterial that last long. Go for it extraction is not a good option it is important to save your teeth, extraction can be done if there is no option to save tooth.

How to get relaxed from dental problems like sensitivity, pyriya, cavity, bleeding gums?

BHMS
Homeopath, Howrah
For that good care of teeth is necessary, brush twice daily after food. Clean mouth after eating something. Vitamin c and calcium is must for healthy teeth. Take as much as sour fruits like lemon, mango, amla, tamrind, for calcium custard, dates, etc. If you have cavity go to dentist for proper care or else it will spread to other teeth.

You will have to do a ultra sonic tooth cleaning and bleaching if needed. A whitening toothpaste can be used after the cleaning procedure which will be prescribed by a dentist.

Hi lybrate-user, it seems you have pain at jaw & neck. I'd advise you to proceed ahead in this manner. First comsult a cardiologist to rule out any cardiac issue (i know you have done 2d echo, but sometime there is transient vasospastic angina which can give rise to such pain & echo can still be normal. Best way to rule out any cardiac pathology is to get dobutamine stress echo done, which will show any positive cardiac issue, which is missed in standard echo or even angiography). Once you have ruled out cardiac pathology then your pain could be due to cervical nerves (facet median branch or even disc herniation at lower cervical spine mainly c7/t1 nerves) or some other neural problem such as atypical facial/non facial neuralgia, which can only be confirmed on clinical examination, proper history & radiological investigation. For same you visit interventional pain specialist for proper diagnosis & further treatment. Hope it helps your query.

I am suffering from bad smell in mouth. I am doing proper care but no result and no problem in teeth. So what can I do?

BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Ideally you should visit to dentist for cleaning of teeth because mostly bed smell is due to deposits in your mouth. But for now you can use mouthwash after meals. Sometimes bad breath is side effect of some medications also.

Natural color of teeth is yellowish white. Only upon teeth examination your shade of teeth can be determined as to how much yellow your teeth actually are. Tooth whitening or bleaching is the procedure to whiten your teeth. Please add more details of your infection of lower jaw for better diagnosis.

bleeding gums are sign of infection due to deposit of plaque and calculus on teeth. get scaling and polishing done​. use mouthwash twice daily after brushing. bad breath is the sign of dry mouth or infection in throat. increase your water intake. take water at regular intervals. avoid aromatic foods like onions and garlic at night. use mouthwash twice daily. reduce your intake of caffeinated drinks like tea or coffee.

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

Brush your teeth after each meal and at bedtime with a soft-bristle toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Soak the brush in warm water to make the bristles even softer.Floss gently once a day.Rinse your mouth four to six times a day, especially after meals, with salt and baking soda. Try a solution of half a teaspoon of salt and half a teaspoon of baking soda in one cup of warm water.When radiation therapy starts, use fluoride rinses and gels. These are an important part of caring for the health of your mouth during cancer treatment.Drink sips of water throughout the day, and use artificial saliva to moisten the mouth.Avoid mouthwashes and other dental products that contain alcohol. Products designed for people with dry mouth are available without a prescription.Use a cool mist humidifier, especially at night.
