Listening to your symtoms it looks like you are developing a condition called oral submucous fibrosis. The treatment of patients with oral submucous fibrosis depends on the degree of clinical involvement. If the disease is detected at a very early stage, cessation of the habit is sufficient. Most patients with oral submucous fibrosis present with moderate-to-severe disease. Moderate-to-severe oral submucous fibrosis is irreversible. Medical treatment is symptomatic and predominantly aimed at improving mouth movements.

I am on prednisolone 30 mg every other day and Azathioprine 50 mg Morning and 100 mg evening to manage polymyositis. I am suffering from cavity and pain in my first molar right lower jaw since 15 for fifteen days and radiate to my right ear and feeling constant pain inside my ear. I took paracetamol 500 mg and then acetofenac 100 mg for pain at night and 100 mg acetofenac in the morning to get relief. I noticed some blood inside of my ear at night which I cleaned with cotton buds and there is no more blood noticed after that but I felt great after that. Now I want to know if I can take some antibiotics to fight this infection if yes, then what antibiotic should I take, what should be the appropriate dose, what should be the frequency and duration of the treatment along with painkillers.

You may have got ear infection which is aggravated or may be overlapped with your tooth related pain. You have to be sure about your problem so that proper treatment can be sought without any delay. You need to visit an ENT specialist first then to a dentist. Tooth related pain can be corrected based on 3 treatment options, that is restoration/ fillings, RCT or extraction. Improper use of antibiotics can lead to more severe infections which will cost more time energy and money. So act wisely.

If it is painful then get it diagnosed by your dentist, don't wait. For temporary relief you can apply anabel ointment or gel. It won't heal that ulcer but give you relief from pain.

Smile Designing

MDS - Periodontology and Oral Implantology, BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Smile Designing

There is always the constant attempt to look better and more appealing. To this effect, smile designing is one particular specialty of cosmetic dentistry with the sole aim of improving a person's smile.
Photographs of various angles, jaw tracing analysis, and simulation of images on the computer are all used to arrive at an optimal size, shape, contour of the jaw and the teeth that can produce the best smile for a given patient. These changes are then replicated on paper and tooth models if required and detailed discussion happen with the patient. Thorough patient counseling is done before initiating work at smile designing.

Some parameters that are manipulated to produce a good smile designing are as follows - first the tooth per se followed by the soft tissues:

  1. Tooth color: In most cases, the tooth color is changed using tooth whitening material or laser. Trust the dentist to achieve a balance between whiteness of the tooth and natural look. In some cases, silver amalgam fillings may be replaced with composite restorations to improve the appearance. Bridges with metal backup may be replaced with complete ceramic crowns too.
  2. Tooth alignment: Crooked or misshaped teeth can be corrected using veneers in minor cases and by orthodontic braces in severe cases. Again, if the patient is very conscious, aesthetic ceramic braces (read more about braces) can be used.
  3. Tooth length: If too much or too less of a tooth is showing during a smile, that needs to be corrected too. Longer teeth are considered to produce a younger appearance than short teeth, which usually is associated with old age and wear and tear. The gums can be reshaped as a part of crown lengthening.
  4. Missing teeth: Teeth that are missing produce a very bad smile and need to be replaced at the earliest for a better smile. Depending on various factors including age and bone health, the choice could be a crown or a bridge or an implant.
  5. Tooth ratio: When a person smiles, the front tooth are the most obvious and should have a ratio of length to width as 4 to 5. This produces a balanced smile.
  6. Tooth texture: Mottling or rough edges on the tooth surface can be corrected by veneers or small composite restorations. As regards the soft tissues.
  7. Gum line: The smile is reproduced on tracing and corrections are made to produce a better smile, even if it requires gum corrections.
  8. Fuller lips and cheeks: Surgical procedures or chemicals may be used to produce fuller lips and cheeks that improve a person's smile.

The next time you are not happy with your smile, visit a dentist. With so many parameters that affect your smile, a little correction could produce a better smile! If you wish to discuss about any specific dental problem, you can consult a specilized dentist and ask a free question.

Dear lybrate-user, the remaining root of the extracted tooth must be taken out. Ask your doctor to extract the same and your wound might need dressings of some antiseptics like iodoform, which will augment the healing process after the tooth is taken out.

MBA (Healthcare), BDS

Its called as dental implants. Instead of the tooth root implant is placed in the bone and cap is given to it for the replacement of missing tooth by fixed option. The strength wil be equal to the natural teeth bcoz support is coming directly from the bone like natural teeth.

Dentist,
Sir I have a new braces what are some precautions I should take. Its panning a lot how should I cure from that.
It is completely normal to have a little pain after putting braces since the forces are more soon after wire activation. Take any painkillers if it's unbearable. Few precaution you can take are 1.don't eat anything sticky like chewing gums etc, hard like bread, chikki, grams etc 2.avoid biting directly. Like don't bite the apple, rather cut it into pieces and then eat 3. Keep your mouth clean. Use a Ortho brush or you can use your regular toothbrush 4. Stuck to soft diet 5. Anything happens to the wire or braces, call your doctor.

Hi, please ask your dentist to take an x-ray and check for infection in the root of the offending tooth. If the dental cavity is very deep, it usually infects the roots also. In that case you may need a root canal treatment. Please revisit your dentist or take a second opinion from an endodontist (dentist specializing in rct procedure). All the best.

You can get professional help. The yellow teeth can be scaled and polished and the black parts can be cavities which can be filled. After this much treatment, if you want still whiter teeth, your dentist may tell you about teeth bleaching.
