Kindly suggest fixed orthodontic treatment of 14 year old male who is diagnosed with lower anterior crowding and deep bite. I am considering the case fit for proximal slicing followed by correction of imbricated lower anteriors with Ni-ti wire. Kindly guide which brackets should I choose and what thickness of the wire should be preferred. Or what should be the best treatment line without extraction.

Hi, it seems you have done a thorough research. But to decide if extraction is required or not clinical examination+ model analysis+ cephalometric analysis are must. Type of braces can be chosen by the patient. Price increases as visibility of the braces decreases. I. E metal labial braces are least expensive and invisalign and lingual braces are most expensive.

Irregular or crowded teeth can be corrected by braces treatment. Exact cost and treatment duration would be depending on the the severity of your problem. Usually the treatment would take one and half years but in severe cases it can take a bit longer.

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.

Sir teeth extraction is done to create space so that the teeth move back into that space , so it depends on the case whether the teeth have to be extracted or not .Its not mandatory in all cases

Unfortunately implants will cost you that much, but you can go for fixed denture instead of implant which will be much cheaper.

How to rid out gums bleeding?

MDS - Periodontics, BDS
Dentist,
Get ur gums examined by a specialist (periodontist). most common cause of bleeding from gums is tartar deposit. any medicine or gel or ointment or lotiin should not be considered as the only mode of treatment. depending on the amount of tartar periodontist may advice u diff treatment options. once treated u might nt even need those lotions and ointments. so dont rely on medication only for the treatment

I am 25 years old. I have gap between my front teeth. It is due to the oversized labial frenum. Please let me know if there is any treatment to close the gap and how many days it takes and how much it may cost. Thanks in advance.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Dear, why are you worried about the gap. It is taken as good omen and a lucky sign, if it is really wide and affecting your looks than this can be treated. Cost will be decided only after you are examined and proper treatment planning is explained to you, will be within affordable limits only.

Dentist,
I am suffering from tooth ache please choose me correct medicine.
You must get an iopa (tooth xray) it can confirm if you actually have an underlying cause to pain. Sometimes a soft tissur injury in the oral cavity or food lodgement around tooth gum can lead to pain. A plain analgesic can help you for sometime but a thorough checkup is necessary.

Is toothpaste a treatment option for sensitivity?

sensitivity can be because of various reasons like loss of tooth enamel, cavity, gum recession etc.
sensitivity is basically a symptom of some other problem. It doesn't make sense to try treating the symptoms when the actual cause is left unchecked. just imagine you are having fever due to malaria, and your physician gives you paracetamol for fever. will it help? same is the case when we use anti sensitivity toothpaste for masking symptoms and not treat the cause. cause will gradually worsen and a say a tooth that initially required only filling will now require root canal because you wasted time trying different toothpastes.

I personally advice such anti sensitivity toothpaste only when no other cause is clinically detected.

keep smiling. ☺

Can Chocolates Cause Tooth Decay?

Can Chocolates Cause Tooth Decay?

One warning that most children would have heard from their parent or other elders is, 'don’t eat chocolates, your teeth will get decayed'. And, most children grow up believing this to be true. As this is a global statement thus, more and more research has been done to clarify this. (Learn more to maintain Oral Health in Children)

Let us understand in brief the basic process of tooth decay. The tooth is made of mineralized layer called the enamel that is covered constantly with saliva. There are thousands of bacteria in the mouth. Food substances gradually deposit on the teeth and form plaque (learn more about plaque problem). This combination of a moist environment and bacteria on a mineralized structure produces the ideal environment for bacteria to act and produce acids which break down the minerals in the enamel. This is the first step in the origin of decay. The acid produced attracts more bacteria which further leads to worsening of the decay.

Some of the facts correlating chocolates and tooth decay are as follows:

  1. Chocolates in particular do not cause tooth decay. Very often, children tend to eat chocolates in between their meals and do not rinse or brush. This leads to greater level of plaque formation, thereby, starting off the process of decay. Not just chocolates any sticky foods can lead to tooth decay. What needs to be enforced is a habit to brush or at the least rinse thoroughly after eating a chocolate bar. In fact, this could be used as a reward, and it can help food deposits formed from other foods also to be washed away. The child gets to eat a chocolate, and good oral hygiene is reinforced too!
  2. Eating a chocolate before the actual meal is a way to indulge. What happens is that there is no sticky residue on the teeth if eaten this way. The child gets to enjoy chocolate at the same time keeping the teeth away from decay.
  3. Another habit is to make sure that the child eats all of chocolate at one shot than to keep nibbling at it for hours. That way, the chocolate can be managed with one round of brushing or rinsing
  4. it is advisable to give the child their share of chocolate at night, as most kids brush teeth before going to bed.
  5. Dark chocolates contain a good amount of antioxidants and are believed to reduce the incidence of plaque formation and therefore, they counter the effect of acids produced by the bacteria.

So, the next time someone talks about chocolates causing all the tooth decay, tell them it is not that bad, you can have your chocolate and eat it too!!

The life of toothbrush is nearly three months. The toothbrush doesn't clean properly after its bristles wears off. Please change toothbrush regularly for proper oral hygiene.

Hi, there are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently.
