Taking care of your tooth brush is as important as taking care of your teeth. So, always rinse your tooth brush thoroughly after brushing and allow it to air-dry before using it again.

I am 23 years old. I usually smoke 1-2 cigarettes a day. I got a Root canal treatment on a molar tooth of mine around 10 years ago. The RCT tooth has now developed an infection and 2 dentists told me I need to get it removed. One said I will have to get an artificial implant after 4 months of removal, not sooner in any case and the other said only 15 days. Which one should I go with?

Dear lybrate user, placement of implants conventionally was and is frequently done after allowing the tooth socket to heal for 3-4 months but sometimes in cases especially of single implant placement, dentists place the implant immediately after the extraction i. E. In the same sitting. So it's either after 3-4 months or immediately, the 15 days later concept doesn't sound convincing.

See you can take any painkiller, but it won't totally reduce pain, you need to visit a dentist, get an xray done of the tooth involved and it may have to be removed.

The Benefits of Sealants

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Dental sealants act as a barrier to prevent cavities. They are a plastic material usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (premolars and molars) where decay occurs most often.
Thorough brushing and flossing help remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth. But toothbrush bristles cannot reach all the way into the depressions and grooves to extract food and plaque. Sealants protect these vulnerable areas by 'sealing out' plaque and food.

Sealants are easy for your dentist to apply. The sealant is painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly to the tooth and hardens. This plastic resin bonds into the depressions and grooves (pits and fissures) of the chewing surfaces of back teeth.

The sealant acts as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids. As long as the sealant remains intact, the tooth surface will be protected from decay. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and may last several years before a reapplication is needed.

During your regular dental visits, your dentist will check the condition of the sealants and reapply them when necessary.
The likelihood of developing pit and fissure decay begins early in life, so children and teenagers are obvious candidates. But adults can benefit from sealants as well.

You might be brushing in a wrong way or with a hard bristle toothbrush. Do remember always brush your teeth gently, do not exagerrate. You can get professional cleaning done by a dentist, cleaning is recommended every 6 months and will help you maintain good oral health. You can also learn toothbrushing techniques from your dentist.

Nothing can replace a natural teeth . A dentist can find solution for your problem certainly. Adv artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment with a cap. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

Hi yellowness of teeth is caused due to plaque accumulation for a long period also called as calculus (hard form). I would recommend you to see a dentist for clinical evaluation. I would advise you to get a round of scaling done every 6 months. Following that you can go for bleaching to improve the colour of your teeth.

You can go, age is not the factor.Your bone support and the condition of the gum is what is going to matter.If you have a good support of the teeth teeth treatment result will be better. Price and treatment time will depend on the condition you have.
