I had wisdom toothache and swelling 1 week back. When consulted dentist she told me to go for wisdom tooth extraction as according to her it is decayed. I am afraid to go for the same as I have heard that it will affect health of my vision. Is wisdom tooth extraction safe to go for. Also with proper course of antibiotics and pain killers the pain and swelling has subsided. Kindly suggest what is best to go for.

If the wisdom tooth is decayed, it is best to get it extracted. Tooth extraction has not effect on vision. It is a very safe procedure. Even if the pain and swelling has subsided, there is a chance it will come back.

I did scaling two weeks ago now my front lower teeth gets tingling for past 3 or 4 days.

I did scaling two weeks ago now my front lower teeth gets tingling for past 3 or 4 days.
It's a normal thing to happen after scaling! but doesn't mean scaling shouldn't be done. The reason why it happens is during scaling the tooth is exposed to high level of vibration and ultrasonic sound, which disrupts pulp all response temporarily. Moreover when the calculus is removed from the tooth, it exposes the tooth surfaces of root portion naked, which are normally covered by gums but in person with calculus there would be calculus between the tooth surface and gums. Eventually when the gum heals and reattaches to the tooth surface, sensitivity/tingling goes away. From person to person the time varies between a week to 2 week with maximum time of a month. Meanwhile you can use any desensitization toothpaste to relieve the tingling.

Hello, There are 2 types of stuttering one is caused by anxiety and other by injury to head. If you started suffering from stuttering after head injury you can consult a neurophysician and a speech therapist online or nearby. If the stuttering is caused by anxiety then you have to consult a speech therapist online or nearby your area. As to my best knowledge there are few people who claim that medicene reduces stuttering but in my practise I have not seen people benefitting with medicenes in case of stuttering due to anxiety. Regards.

Important Faq's About Dental Implants

Dentist, Udaipur
Important Faq's About Dental Implants

1. What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a standard for tooth replacement. An implant is a small “support” made of titanium and placed into the jawbone at the point of a missing tooth root. After the implant has attached to the adjacent bone, a replacement tooth is positioned on top of the implant.

2. Do the new teeth look natural?
The new teeth have a natural-like appearance and feel.

3. Am I a suitable candidate for the procedure?
Overall good health and enough jaw bone are the vital requirements. If you are fit for tooth extraction, then you can have an implant. Individuals who have lost teeth due to disease, decay or injury are suitable candidates for the procedure. After taking complete medical history and x-rays it can be decided.

4. How successful is it?
They have been used for over thirty years and have shown high success rates. To ensure that implants last for long, one should practice good oral hygiene.

5. Is the procedure painful?
Anesthesia is administered during the surgery. Your dental implant dentist may prescribe pain medication to ease any discomfort after the surgery. Most patients report minor discomfort when they get home. Many patients feel okay the next day and can return to work.

6. How long does it take?
The time needed relies on the complexity and number of implants. A straightforward and uncomplicated dental implant may take less than 1 hour.

7. Am I allowed to eat after the surgery?
It is advisable to avoid exposing a recent surgical site to food. One is advised to take soft foods and to stay hydrated. We will guide you accordingly.

8. How long does the healing and placing of the implant crown take?
The duration mainly depends on your treatment plan; but mostly takes about two to six months. There are two major stages. At first, the implant should heal before we place the replacement crown.

9. How long will the implants last?
After the fusion of the implant to the bone, it can last for several years if it is well maintained. Many implants have stayed in place for over forty years.

10. Are dental implants costly?
The cost is relative. They are a little more costly than bridgework, but they last for much longer. Thus, more cost effective.

11. Will my insurance cover for the costs?
It depends on the individual plan. Talk to your insurance provider.

12. Can my body reject the implant?
An allergy to titanium is rare, but may occur. At times, the implant does not fuse to the bone during the first time, but on the second trial, it fuses.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Advise get an X-Ray done and connect with the report for further naturopathic traction. Sometimes joint pain is seen, especially at the temperomandibular joint and can be alleviated with natural medicines suitably. For the time being, suggest avoid biting any kind of hard food stuff including chocolates, nuts, meat etc all as it is likely to aggravate the pain/ condition. A little bit of cold application, externally, can help lessen swelling, if any. Stay well hydrated, and keep your diet and lifestyle streamlined. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely,

This is probably because you have gum disease. You should get a scaling appointment fixed with your dentist. You could use warm saline rinses at home 4-5 times a day too and mouthwash. Oral sex can lead to problems on your palate and not on the left side of your mouth.

I am looking for implantation for my right lower jaw, which is situated next wisdom tooths.Drs said it is not possible due to less space in gum and do not have muscle (but without doing X-ray).They took moulded on my both jaws. Also know the expense. Previously I had bridge, which had to extract due to infection in gum.

Dentist, Hyderabad
There is nothing impossible in dentistry provided the treatment should be properly planned, if there is no space in gum than we can go for ridge augumentation or placing bone grafting material and the implant can be placed by using mesh and when implant gets osteointegrated in 6 to 8 weeks the mesh is removed and tooth is placed

When plaque and tartar accumulate in the teeth, they give rise to gum diseases. But if taken care of at the right time, they can reversed at the initial stage itself. By getting the plaque and tartar removed from the teeth, you can easily get rid off them.
