Tooth Replacement Options

Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Chennai
Tooth Replacement Options
There are several options available to you if you've lost one or more teeth.

Millions of adults have lost one or more of their teeth due to oral diseases (such as cavities or gum disease) or injury. Missing teeth can make chewing difficult, cause problems speaking, and impact a person's sense of self-esteem. That's why seeing a dentist about tooth replacements, which may include dental implants, bridges, or dentures, can be an important part of maintaining your dental health.

Tooth Replacement: Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that a periodontist inserts into your jaw to replace lost teeth. Putting in dental implants involves the surgical placement of a metal post into the bone underneath your gums. A replacement tooth, called a crown, will be attached to the post, giving the appearance of a natural tooth. In cases where you are missing multiple teeth, or all of your teeth, dental implants can be used in conjunction with bridges or dentures to make these tooth replacements more secure.

Dental implants are often a preferred tooth replacement option because they do not affect the adjacent teeth like a bridge does. Dental implants also look and feel like natural teeth, and are more secure than removable dentures.

But not everyone is a candidate for dental implants. To receive dental implants, you must be in good overall health, your jawbone must be able to adequately hold the implants in place, and your gum tissue should be healthy and free of disease. So, in some cases, a bridge or dentures without dental implants may be a better choice.

Tooth Replacement: Dental Bridges

A dental bridge, which is also called a fixed partial denture, may be a tooth replacement option if you are missing one or more teeth. Dental bridges get their name because they "bridge" the gap between your missing tooth or teeth and your surrounding teeth. Your dentist will bond the bridge onto the teeth that surround your gap.

In addition to fixed bridges, there are two other types of dental bridges:

Removable bridges. If you have a removable bridge, you will be able to remove it, clean it, and put it back in yourself.
Implant bridges. An implant bridge is attached to a dental implant or implants.
Dental bridges are made from various materials, including gold, alloys, and porcelain. They can help maintain the shape of your face and the integrity of your bite, and allow you to chew, speak, and smile with more ease and confidence.

Tooth Replacement: Dentures

For people who have lost all or most of their teeth, dentures, or false teeth, may be the best tooth replacement option. There are two types of dentures:

Complete dentures. This type of denture is used when you have no teeth remaining, or when your remaining teeth need to be removed. They cover your upper and lower gums. If you have teeth removed, your dentist will give you an immediate denture to wear for six to eight weeks, until your gums have healed and a conventional denture can be custom designed for you.
Overdentures. These are removable dentures that can be used if you still have some remaining natural teeth, or have dental implants. Overdentures should only be used if your remaining teeth or dental implants are able to provide adequate support.
Like dental bridges, dentures can help you maintain your facial shape and your self-esteem. It may take some time before you're able to chew and speak normally again, but these skills will improve with practice.

If you are missing teeth, talk with your dentist about whether dental implants, bridges, or dentures may be options for you.

First xray is needed to know how far the cavity has reached in teeth among its three layers. If cavity is near to the pulp than root canal is advised. If teeth are grossly decayed the post and core treatment following root canal treatment can also yield good result. Last option is to get teeth extracted and bridge of teeth can be fixed or implant placement can be done.

Hello lybrate-user, If your mother is complaining of pain in those decayed teeth, kindly get a treatment done as soon as possible. Get an x-ray done and depending upon that, a root canal treatment or extraction (removal of teeth) can be done. Once this is done, the affected teeth can be replaced or restored with a crown (capping done over the teeth). Please do not ignore the pain. Get her teeth checked every 6 months to prevent any further damage.

Dear lybrate user, rinse your mouth with warm salt water 3-4 times daily to reduce the swelling. Take a pain killer if required. Avoid brushing hard in that area. Buy a soft toothbrush and save your teeth and gums by brushing gently using proper technique.

All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist.

Mouth Ulcer Treatment In Hindi - मुंह के छाले का इलाज

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Mouth Ulcer Treatment In Hindi - मुंह के छाले का इलाज

माउथ अल्सर एक ऐसी बीमारी है जिसका लक्षण हमें आसानी से नजर आ जाता है. जैसे कि होठों, मसूढ़े और मुंह के किसी अन्य हिस्सों में कोई सफेद घाव का दिखना, मुंह से खून का निकलना या फिर खाते समय मुंह में जलन सा महसूस होना. इन लक्षणों के नजर आते ही तुरंत डॉक्टर से संपर्क करना चाहिए. इससे फायदा ये होगा कि यदि आप समय से डॉक्टर के पास जाएंगे तो हफ्ते-दस दिन में ठीक हो जाएंगे. यदि आप समय से इसका इलाज नहीं कराते हैं तो कभी-कभी ये कैंसर का कारण भी बन सकता है. मुंह में होने वाले अल्सर के कुछ उपचार हम आपको बता देते हैं जिससे आप राहत महसूस करेंगे.

तीन प्रकार का होता है माउथ अल्सर

1. गंभीर अल्सर
जैसा कि नाम से ही स्पष्ट है कि आमतौर से होने वाले अल्सर से आकार में बड़ा होता  है. आपको बता दें कि ये गंभीर अल्सर 10 में से 1 व्यक्ति को ही होता है. लेकिन जब आपको पता चले कि आपको गंभीर अल्सर है तो तुरंत किसी अच्छे डॉक्टर से संपर्क करना चाहिए.
2. सामान्य अल्सर
अल्सर से पीड़ित होने वाले ज्यादातर लोग सामान्य अल्सर से ही प्रभावित होते हैं. इसके नाम से भी स्पष्ट है कि ये आकर में ज्यादा बड़ा नहीं होता है और लगभग 10 दिन में ठीक भी हो जाता है.
3. हेरपेटीफॉर्म अल्सर
हेरपेटीफॉर्म अल्सर का दूसरा नाम पिनप्वाइंट अल्सर भी है. ये लगभग 3 मिमी आकार का होता है. आमतौर पर 10 से 40 वर्ष के आयुवर्ग के बीच होने वाले इस अल्सर से मात्र 10 प्रतिशत लोग ही प्रभावित हैं. ये बच्चों और बूढों में न के बराबर ही होता है.

ये हैं मुख्य लक्षण
1. मुंह में अल्सर होने से खाते और पीते समय बहुत ज्यादा दर्द होता है.
2. व्यवहार में चिडचिड़ापन आने लगता है. 
3. आपको हमेशा लगेगा कि आप थके हुए हैं. 
4. मुंह के घाव में लालपन नजर आने लगता है.

कैसे करें उपचार
1. माउथ अल्सर के मरीजों को को खाने में विटामिन-सी का प्रयोग करना चाहिए. इसके लिए आप दो-तीन गिलास संतरे का जूस प्रतिदिन पिएं. आप टमाटर से भी विटामिन सी प्राप्त कर सकते हैं.
2. जितना हो सके ज्यादा मसालेदार और तले-भुने खाद्य पदार्थों से परहेज करें.
3. ऐसे में आपको ज्यादा से ज्यादा मात्रा में फलों का सेवन करना चाहिए और खूब पानी पीना चाहिए.
4. जितना हो सके हरी सब्जियों का भरपूर सेवन करने से लाभ मिलता है.
5. यदि आप खाना खाते समय खाने में कच्चे प्याज का इस्तेमाल करें तो और बेहतर होगा.
6. माउथ अल्सर के पीड़ितों को दूध से बने खाद्य पदार्थों जैसे कि दही, बटर मिल्क और पनीर आदि इतेमाल में लाना चाहिए.
7. मासाहारी भोजन अम्लीय स्वभाव का होता है इसलिए मुंह के अल्सर पीड़ितों को इसके इस्तेमाल से बचना चाहिए.
8. मुंह की सिकाई करने के लिए आपको दिन में दो से तीन बार तक गरारा करना चाहिए.
9. सबके घरों में आसानी से उपलब्ध तुलसी के कुछ पत्ते चबाने से भी राहत मिलती है.
11. ऐसे पदार्थ जिन्हें खाने से मुंह में जलन होने या दांतों में फंसने की संभावना हो, उसे खाने से बचना चाहिए. जैस आपको अल्सर के ठीक होने तक मदिरा तथा चॉकलेट से दूर रहना चाहिए.
12. अल्सर में जलन कम करने के लिए ग्लिसरीन में हल्दी का पाउडर मिलाकर उससे अल्सर वाली जगह पर धीरे-धीरे मालिश करें. इसके करीब 15-20  मिनट बाद इसे साफ कर लें.
13. एक उपाय ये भी है कि एक कप पानी में एक चम्मच धनिया पाउडर मिलाकर उबाले. इसके बाद जब पानी ठंडा हो जाए तो उससे दिन में दो से तीन बार गरारे करने से भी राहत मिलती है.
14. पानी की कुछ बूंदों में एक चम्मच बेकिंग सोडा के साथ मिलाएं और उसे अल्सर वाली जगह पर दो-तीन बार लगायें और 15 मिनट बाद उसे अच्छे से साफ कर लें.
15. खाना खाने के बाद हर्बल चाय पिने से भी माउथ अल्सर में आराम मिलता है.

कैसे होता है माउथ अल्सर
1. बहुतायत मात्रा में तला-भुना और मसालेदार भोजन करने से.
2. ज्यादा मात्रा में अम्लीय पदार्थों के सेवन से.
3. दांतों की नियमित और उचित तरीके से सफाई नहीं करने से.
4. गाल भीतर से बार-बार कटने से भी इसके संक्रमण को फैलने की आशंका होती है.
5. जिस चीज को खाने से एलर्जी है उसे बार-बार खाने से भी इसके होने की संभावना होती है.
6. जब आपके शरीर में विटामिन बी और आयरन की मात्रा सामान्य से कम होती है.

I am feeling teeth pain since two days back. Blood is coming from between two molar teeth. Taken cefradox (antibiotic).
Visit a Dentist and get that interdental space cleaned. Also that area and the adjoining tooth to be checked via RVG (digital Xray) if any other problems like cavity is there or not. If not then scaling in that area followed by some mouthwash and antibiotic will be more than enough to get it healed. If there is more space in between the tooth and I'd food get lodge in that area then permanent solution is to go for a Crown to close the space.
