I have a different type of problem in teeth. Actually i went through cleaning of teeth by a intern dentist 3 mnths ago. Problem is severe cold and some sensations in teeth. When it came in contact with air,it felt actually.

MDS - Periodontics
Dentist, Yamunanagar
Dear , The sensitivity to cold is a common problem after tooth cleaning. It is not due to the procedure but due to the exposure of the sensitive part of tooth (Root), which takes place after the removal of calculus (Tartar in common language). Anyhow lets treat it. Buy Colgate Sensitive Pro Relief or Sensodyne or Sensodent KF or Thermoseal RA (either of them) toothpaste. Apply the paste, with the help of finger, to the outer and inner surfaces of teeth (especially in the teeth with sensitivity) and let it be there for 15- 20 minutes. Then take your toothbrush, wet. As paste is already there in mouth, brush your teeth with very soft hand. It is just like everyday brushing, only difference being that you have apply the paste for some time before you brush your teeth. As the paste already there, no need of applying paste to the brush. It will take almost three to 4 weeks, for the sensitivity to completely subside. It can subside early also, but if doesn't wait for 4 weeks. If you don't get relief upto 4 weeks, then go to a Periodontist. Now I will come to the harder part. In your case, I feel Periodontitis (Pyorrhea) has set in.As a result only scaling (cleaning of teeth) won't suffice. You have to seek the opinion of a Periodontist (Gum specialist) is definitely required. The reason being Pyorrhea being a very slow destruction of bone supporting your teeth, you will realize the actual difficulty when no or minimal bone will be left and your teeth becoming loose. At that stage saving your natural teeth will not be possible or in a compromised state. On the other hand if you undergo complete treatment, and follow the instructions properly then, you will never loose your teeth. Just make sure you consult a Periodontist. Till the Good Luck and Good Bye.

Why Milk Teeth Are Important

Aesthetic Dentistry, Certificate Course in implants , BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Why Milk Teeth Are Important

One of the landmarks of a child's development during the first year is the eruption of the little white pearls. The first tooth breaks into the mouth, somewhere between six months to one year of life. The entire set is in place in a baby's mouth by about 20 months of life. Though called deciduous teeth as they fall off after a certain period of time, the last of the milk teeth remains in the mouth up to 12 to 14 years of age.

Listed below are some points outlining the significance of milk teeth. It assumes importance, given that many a times, parents ignore injury and/or decay to these with the assumption that these are anyways temporary and a new set will be in place later.

  1. Eating: One of the primary functions of the milk teeth is to aid in chewing or mastication and digestion. Though not as strong as their permanent counterpart, they do play a great role in chewing and digesting the food. Children with malfunctioning teeth, especially molars, (missing or decayed) can result into poor nutrition.
  2. Speech development: The milk teeth play a critical role in the speech development, and speech abnormalities can be seen in people,  who do not have an effective set of milk teeth. It is common to see children in whom the front teeth in the milk set are not properly positioned, there could be speech problems like lisping.
  3. Aesthetics: Needless to say, a good set of white, pearly teeth adds to the beauty of a child's smile. This plays a major role in boosting the child's social behavior including acceptance and confidence levels.
  4. Space Maintenance: The milk teeth maintain and preserve the space required for their successors. In case where a lost tooth is not replaced, the space may not be sufficient for the permanent one to erupt, and this may even stop the permanent one from erupting. The result could be a blank space where the milk tooth is lost without the successor erupting into the mouth due to lack of space.

Given the above reasons, it is very important to take good care of the primary or milk or deciduous teeth. Some simple things to do would be:

  1. Enforce a regular oral hygiene routine including rinsing after each meal or snack, brushing twice a day, flossing and use of mouthwash
  2. A biannual visit to the dentist for oral prophylaxis regular cleaning followed by fluoride paste application if required; this will also reduce the onset of dental caries. Early caries can be identified during these visits   and treated before onset of pain.
  3. Chemical sealants may be used if the pits on the teeth are deep and can get decayed easily.

Visit your dentist regularly to know more and to maintain these pearls.

I am 18 years old my problem is teeth is very yellow so please advise to make teeth white. Please advise.
Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. 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 have broken my teeth by falling from bike what I have do now?

Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist,
I have broken my teeth by falling from bike what I have do now?
First of all you have to get it confirmed at what level the teeth are broken, whether broken from the crown portion only or within the root. You need to get a x ray for the same to confirm. If broken from the crown only teeth can be saved but if broken beyond a certain level in root portion than they have to be removed and replaced with Implants or FPD.

Professional cleaning along with few medicines will surely help you. There is no natural way as such. But your home care will be able to maintain health throughout life. Can't say its dangerous but its very harmful to your teeth, sooner or later it will cause mobility in your teeth. So better the earlier, consult the dentist.

I am having pain in my molar teeth while eating any cold things. What should I do?
Treatment dental pain teeth pain may be due to various reasons like infection, sensitivity or trauma. If your teeth is decayed it is better to get it filled or treated by a dentist. If you are opting for root canal treatment do not forget to get a crown on the effected tooth. If you want to go for only medicinal treatment so let me tell you only medicine are not going to be very effective untill you get this treated by a dentist.

a filling is done in the tooth when there is a damage to the tooth by means of caries (decay) or physical damage. Drilling is done to remove the decayed portion of your tooth and a filling is done to restore the same. The entire procedure should not affect your jaw placement or positioning in any way.

I have big problem of my mouth after brush my mouth smell and teeth yellow . please help me.
Bad breath can be due to various reasons. If you have bleeding gums or tartar accumulation on your teeth, a dental cleaning will help you overcome the problem. If you have any other issue like constipation or acidity or sinusitis etc, you need to get the root cause of the problem treated. In the meanwhile you can use any over the counter mouthwash and maintain a good oral hygiene which will reduce the bad smell to some extent.

Most probably you are having extrinsic smoking stains which can safely be removed by cleaning in any dental clinic. Cleaning has no side effects & is advised once a year.

When I brush there is bleeding in my teeth, how can I stop the bleeding.

BDS
Dentist,
It may from your gums only,not from teeth.Bleeding from gums mainly due to gingival inflammation as a result of plaque and calculus(hard and calcium carbonate like bacterial deposits) deposits on your teeth. Consult a dentist and do scaling(mechanical cleaning)followed by chlorhexidine mouth wash.
