I just removed my tooth as suggested by dentist. Now I want to implant a new tooth. I don't want to go for a bridge ad it affects adjacent tooth. So I think implant will be better but is there any other option except this two. How much do a implant cost actually. Is there any cheaper thing than implant and bridge.

Dentist, Agra
Implant is a very good option as it does not require support from adjacent tooth. The cost varies however depending upon the quality used by your dentist. If you want to go with sumthing cheaper then bridge is an option. Apart from these two. You do not have any other option.

The child had a fall ( trauma) and broke the front tooth. Parents were intelligent to retrieve the broken off tooth piece from site of trauma. They brought the child with the broken piece within the 1st hour after trauma - golden hour - by pre informing us over the phone. The broken piece was joined back to look as good as before byva highly complicated but precision technique, obliviating the need for any RCT or Crown. See the pics to believe it!

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical, gum strengthening procedure. Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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.

I used to use pepsodent. My teeth were normal and healthy. Now I switched to patanjali toothpaste and suddenly I felt a type of sensitivity pain whenever I eat some very cold or hot things. What could be it? Is anything related to toothpaste?

It may not be dew to the toothpaste. Better to visit a dentist for a checkup. It might be simple caries. Do not use a hard tooth brush. Maintain good dental hygiene for future dental protection.

I am having tooth problems. I feel like itching in my enamels. I don't know whether its sensitivity or something else. Please suggest me the solutions. Thank you.

A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay.

I'm underwent orthodontics, 1 month ago, 1st week, doctor suggest Amflor toothpaste, its very costly, only one week paste is over, very small 100rs, and mouthwash also over both are expensive seems to be. Pls suggest is any other toothpaste that can I use? saltwater can be use for mouthwash? Pls suggest.

If you keep your mouth clean after every meal, colgate total is good. Brush twice daily, gargle after every meal with warm water. Get an orthodontic brush for brushing from chemist. That's it. No need to buy expensive paste or mouthrinse.

Dentistry involves a little medicinal and more corrective things. So don't try home remedies for a dental problem rather visit a dentist nearby.

Getting a good night sleep before the root canal treatment is the best way to go as it would reduce anxiety and maintain the overall well being.

Not only are old toothbrushes ineffective, but they also harbor harmful bacteria that can cause infections. Toothbrushes should be changed every three to four months.

FLUOROSIS? Dental fluorosis is the result of chronic endogenic. Intake of fluorides in amounts exceeding the optimal daily dose of 1 ppm. For TREATMENT,Visit a dentist.The method of acidic micro abrasion, followed by remineralisation procedures, assures a considerable recovery of the dental surfaces affected by fluorosis. Best way is capping or veneers for upper front 6 teeth & lower front 6 teeth. Until then use tooth mousse tooth paste. Apply this paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.
