Our teeth should only be used for chewing purposes. Using them for performing other activities such as cracking nuts, removing bottle tops or ripping open packaging can cause chipped or broken teeth.

Which foods and drinks containing sugar cause tooth decay and how many soft or fizzy drinks can we have in a day?

Its better to avoid soft or fizzy drinks. All food & drink containing sugar, sticky food, dry mouth, improper oral hygiene that includes improper brushing, flossing, & tongue cleaning can cause tooth decay.

Using an appropriate tooth paste is very necessary for the health of our teeth. Tooth pastes which contain flouride help in keeping the teeth healthy by reducing the risk of tooth decay.

Hello, you need to visit a dentist before taking any medications. Get an x-ray done. If there is a cavity, you need to get it filled. If there is infection to the roots, you need to get it treated.

Is flossing good for teeth? And does it create gaps in teeth? And are floss picks good?

Is flossing good for teeth? And does it create gaps in teeth? And are floss picks good?
Yess flossing is a very good habit & it shud b done by everyone everyday after everymeal. Your toothbrush is not able to clean the spaces in between the teeth that thoroughly, that's y you need to do flossing & yes it does not create any space between the teeth because its very very less in thickness, just like a thread, but yes using toothpicks or pins in between the teeth can definately increase the spaces in between your tooth.

Recurrent ulcers have only symptomatic treatment and they heal by themselves. Try mild intraoral steroidal ointments. It can give quick relief from ulcers. Take care.

The Role Of Implants In Dentistry!

BDS
Dentist, Delhi
The Role Of Implants In Dentistry!

A dental implant is a titanium post which mimics the root of the tooth and it’s surgically positioned into your jawbone beneath the gum line. After the implant is positioned, your dentist mounts replacement teeth or a bridge to replace a tooth or teeth that have fallen off, into that area.

Implants are a very useful new way to replace teeth that have been lost due to ageing, gum disease or trauma.

Benefits-
The options which were earlier available to replace missing teeth were an ordinary bridge which was attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth.

  1. A big advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be chipped or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth or teeth in place.
  2. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip. It gives you improved speech. 
  3. An implant also is better for maintaining dental health as it does not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
  4. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
  5. Implants also don’t come loose as dentures can.

Because implants fuse to the jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. This means dentures and bridges mounted to implants don’t slip or shift in your mouth. This helps you eat and speak normally.

This secure fit also makes the dentures and bridges mounted over implants feel more natural than bridges or dentures.

Some people can’t get ordinary bridges and dentures because of sore spots, poor ridges or gagging and for them, implants are a heaven send.

Should you get implants?

You can only get implants if you must have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. If your bone is too thin or soft you may have to get a bone graft first.

You should also be committed to keeping your implants healthy. For this, you should be committed to meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits as these will ensure the long-term success of your dental implants.

Types-

Two types of implants are considered safe by the American Dental Association. They are:

  1. Endosteal implants —These are surgically implanted directly into your jawbone. This is followed by a second surgery to connect a post to the original implant after the surrounding gum tissue has healed. And finally, an artificial tooth or teeth is attached to the post. This can be done individually or grouped on a bridge or denture.
  2. Subperiosteal implants — These consist of a metal frame that is fitted onto your jawbone. After the gums heal, the frame automatically becomes fixed to the jawbone. After these artificial teeth are mounted onto the posts, which are attached to the frame, and left to protrude through the gums just like with endosteal implants.
  3. Implants are very natural but they are expensive than other dentures or bridges, the other methods of teeth replacement. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

The best medicine is homoeopathic which can not only cure the ulcer but can also stop the recurrence. But better take homoeopathic medicine by proper consultation. You may try taking Merc sol 30 1 dose every week.

Quit habits if you have any. Use SNOWDENT toothpaste for brighter teeth. Apply it for 10-15 minutes and then brush the teeth. Overnight application is effective.

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.
