You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then rinse thoroughly with mouth wash. Then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth.

How to Manage Broken Front Tooth in Children

How to Manage Broken Front Tooth in Children

More than often, parents have to deal with children coming home with a broken front tooth / teeth. Dental problems (learn more to maintain dental health), injuries sustained during physical activities and games, munching on certain foodstuffs (nuts, certain candies) contribute in a big way to chipped front tooth. It is advisable for parents to consult a dentist at the earliest. Left unattended, the situation might result in infections or other dental complications (know more to maintain healthy teeth).

A broken front tooth is often the hardest to fix. The effectiveness of the treatment is largely governed by the nature and severity of the damage.

1. In case of a really small crack or a break, the problem can be fixed by simply filing the broken surface to smoothen it.

2. Dental bonding comes as a huge relief in situations where a small portion or corner of the front tooth chips off. The procedure is simple and hassle free. The surface of the broken tooth is fixed or bonded with a bonding material. The material is shaped well to give it a more natural appearance. The bonding material is finally hardened using UV light.

3. Dental crowning comes in handy when a large chunk of the front tooth cracks or breaks off. To understand the condition better, an X-ray of the affected tooth is carried out. If everything goes fine, the dentist proceeds to the next step. The tooth to be crowned is then filed down to ensure sufficient space to fit in the crown.

In some cases, the break results in enormous loss of the tooth. Under such circumstances, a filling material is used to assist the tooth in holding the crown. Next, an impression of the tooth (receiving the crown) as well as the opposing tooth is made using putty. Till the new crown is being manufactured, the dentist may fix a temporary crown (generally made of acrylic) to protect the tooth. In the next sitting, the dentist replaces the temporary crown with a permanent one. The crown used may be of stainless steel, all porcelain, all ceramic, metal, porcelain fused to metal or all resin.

In case of an extensive damage, Root canal is performed prior to the dental crowning. This goes a long way to ward off any possible dental infection or injury.

It only reduces the burning by providing coldness. Instead use turmeric powder mixed in water. It has healing property.

How can I clean my teeth or which toothpaste should I go for? I have yellowish teeth.

BDS
Dentist, Noida
How can I clean my teeth or which toothpaste should I go for? I have yellowish teeth.
There are several causes of tooth discoloration, including: foods/drinks. Coffee, tea, colas, wines, and certain fruits and vegetables (for example, apples and potatoes) can stain your teeth. Tobacco use. Smoking or chewing tobacco can stain teeth. Poor dental hygiene. Inadequate brushing and flossing to remove plaque and stain-producing substances like coffee and tobacco can cause tooth discoloration. Disease. Several diseases that affect enamel (the hard surface of the teeth) and dentin (the underlying material under enamel) can lead to tooth discoloration. Treatments for certain conditions can also affect tooth color. For example, head and neck radiation and chemotherapy can cause teeth discoloration. In addition, certain infections in pregnant mothers can cause tooth discoloration in the infant by affecting enamel development. Medications. The antibioticstetracycline and doxycycline are known to discolor teeth when given to children whose teeth are still developing (before age 8). Mouth rinses and washes containing chlorhexidine and cetylpyridinium chloride can also stain teeth. Antihistamines (like benadryl), antipsychotic drugs, and drugs for high blood pressure also cause teeth yellowing visit a dentist for the treatment.

Your tooth must be decay too much so the dentist might have told you to go for root canal Root canal is basically cleaning of the tooth root which are infected due to cavities

I have  a pain in tooth since last 3days. Tooth is carious. And  pain is throbbing type. So what should I do?
As per your complains and symptoms, you have caries with pulpitus. Get an x-ray done to decide whether you need filling or rct. For temporary relief from pain take ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water and ornof 2 tabs daily for 5 days. And consult the doctor for rct. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash for 15 days.

What could be the best recovery method? I just had an major road accident. I had stitches on forehead, near eyebrow and on cheek. And I have lost my 4 teeth. So can you suggest what should I do to recover fast?

Hi, the fast recovery can be achieved by taking a balanced, healthy and nutritious food, avoiding junk food, taking 7-9hours of sleep at night and 1-2 hours of rest during daytime, keeping yourself well-hydrated by drinking 10-12 glasses of water in a day. Physiotherapy would help you to improve your muscle movements. Also, visit a dentist for those 4 teeth. Medication: take homoeopathic medicines - arnica 30 and rhus tox. 30 - both 3 times a day for 2 weeks. And revert.

Sometimes young adolescents and adults fall and get fracture of incisors and loss of a large portion of their permanent teeth causing cosmetic problem while smiling. What should be advised to them for getting their problem remedied.

Hello doctor. Very genuine question sir. The fracture of the front tooth or teeth are more prone if the teeth are placed more front than usual making it more susceptible for the impact. This has to be corrected by repositioning the upper front teeth slightly behind than the current position, which is more harmonious to the rest I the complement of the teeth. The treatment usually us orthodontics (braces). But in any case of the trauma has already occurred then the best option wud be combination of braces as well as cosmetic recontouring of the teeth. I hope I answers your doubt sir. If anymore please feel free to contact
