Do fillings last forever ?

Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Ambala
Do fillings last forever ?
"Do fillings last forever" is difficult to answer since there are so many factors at play. There have been fillings that last over 40 years while others fail within 1 to 2 years. The factors can include:

Type of material (silver amalgam vs. Resin composite).
Location in the mouth.
Oral hygiene.
Sugar intake.
Occlusion (how the teeth come together).

So, while occasionally a filling can last a lifetime, that is not the norm. Just like nearly all other medical appliances and devices, they can and do wear out. It is a myth that all fillings will last forever.

Visit your dentist to know your gum health. S your gums speak a lot about your overall health. Don't ignore bad or bleeding gums.

I am 25 years old. I want to ask how do I whiten my tooth either by naturally or medical treatments?

Advanced Aesthetics, BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Hi, there are various method / products available to whiten teeth. The most effective is in-office whitening done by a dental professional. It's usually a one hour procedure in which whitening gel will apply to the teeth and activate by whitening light for 10 to 15 minutes. 2 or 3 such sessions may required.

Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need Coronoplasty (smoothen teeth edges) along with T. Rebagen 10, morning one tab & one at night for 5 days, C. Becosules 5 cap, for five days in the morning after meals. Hexigel ointment on the area of ulcer. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. You may consult me in person. DENTAL TIPS: - Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. If sores are large, painful or persistent, your dentist may prescribe an antimicrobial mouth rinse, a corticosteroid ointment, or a prescription or non-prescription solution to reduce the pain and irritation.

My teeth have lost its whiteness. They have turned yellowish in colour. I brush daily daily using X-TAR toothpaste but there is no change in the colour. Please provide some tips to remove yellowish colour in teeth.

BDS
Dentist, Ghaziabad
If the natural color of your teeth is yellow then only bleaching can help. But depends wether your teeth r suitable for the procedure or not. Secondly if the yellowish stains r present then scaling followed by polishing will sort out your problem.

A root canal treatment is required to fix a tooth pulp which gets inflamed, infected or becomes dead.

What is gum disease? Is there any permanent cure for this. How I should overcome this.

Dental Clinic
Dentist, Gurgaon
Gum disease is swelling and bleeding from gums. It is due to bad oral hygiene. It can be cured by maintaining oral hygiene. Start doing mouthwash every night and brush your teeth twice a day.

The condition of yours is called gastro esophageal reflux disorder (gerd). You may try some lifestyle changes like below: 1. Avoid liquid diet for dinner 2. Donot drink any liquids before going to sleep. 3. Avoid spicy food 4. Maintain 30 degrees head end elevation of the bed. 5. Maintain a gap of atleast 2 hours between dinner and sleep time. 6. Avoid forceful cleaning of your throat in the morning. If your problem did not get over by above lifestyle changes. Please consult gastroenterologist and get ugi endoscopy done to rule out any other problems.

My teeth is yellow, I used a lot of thoothpaste but yellow is not removed so please tell me or tell me a name of toothpaste.

Whichever toothpaste you use. God has given you this shade of teeth n no one paste can change the color. The only solution is what you need is to get a veneering done for front teeth if you are so really desperate to get white teeth thanks.

Hello doctor I'm 23 years old female I'm having left side molar with tooth caries and right side teethcracked. My dentist told have to remove the left side molar and then have to put cap on right side. How much cost have to spend for both? Pls reply me.

BDS
Dentist,
According to your conversation I think your left side tooth is grossly destructed n we can't save this tooth thatswhy your dentist told to get extration f this tooth. N in right side I think deep caries which can save the tooth by doing root canal treatment (r. C. T) n placing cap over this. It means your treatment 1 extraction (left side tooth)-500-800/ 2. Rct +capping (right side)- 1200to 2000+1200to 1800 n charge varies according to area, n dentist to dentist. I am giving you just gross estimate.

Sir my father is having pain in left tongue. Doctor advised for biopsy but in place of this we move to ayurvedic treatment and from 7 months he was feeling comfort but from last few days he again feeling the same problem. We don't want to do biopsy because this disease may increase and spread by this. Can this problem destroy by ayurvedic or homeopathy treatment. He is 76 years old. Till now we don't know exactly what is problem.

Increase dietary intake of vitamin B, folic acid, iron and use of vitamin supplements etc under medical supervision if blood tests confirm low concentrations • institute topical antifungal therapy if fungal plaques noticed Mouth sores are common and rarely Cause complications. Most go away in about a week, but it’s important to monitor any mouth sores you develop. If you are concerned, or if the sore doesn’t seem to be healing, contact your dentist.

How does body posture is affected by the teeth? Which doctor tell me the right information between body posture and malocclusion?

BDS, MDS
Dentist, Gorakhpur
No lybrate-user its other way round, body posture affects teeth positioning and lead to malocclusion. Mostly it occurs before 18 years of age till jaw grows. How? When you continuously forcing your jaws by palm one side for longer (While reading books, watching TV etc). If you mean facial deformity by sayin body posture, Yes, malocclusion can affect face shape in many ways. THANK YOU.

No but it should not b kept pending for long as after rct tooth tends to become brittle if left without cap because of reduced blood supply.
