Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner.

What kind of teeth problems you have. Kindly visit your dentist once in 6 months for routine dental checkup. Avoid having sticky food and sweets before going to bed. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene. More than the toothpaste it is the correct brushing technique which is important to maintain your oral hygiene.

Regular Follow up Check ups

30 minutes daily! this will abrade the enamel of teeth. And your teeth will appear more yellow. More aggressive brushing is harmful. Show it to dentist and learn the brushing and the treatment of your condition.

You can take a pain killer tablet like brufen 400 / combiflam /diclogem for a temporary relief and consult a dentist for proper treatment of the tooth to avoid same problem in future. (note: pain killer tablets are also not solution because they only treat the symptom and not the cause of tooth pain. Also harmful for the body if taken for longer periods without proper supervision.) pain can be due to various factors visit your dentist and get a proper examination done which may include x-rays if necessary, to get a precise diagnosis, after which dentist can give you exact alternatives of treatment options and then you can make decision as to get which appropriate treatment suitable to your problem and needs.

What is the life period of artificial teeth ?
There is no life period for artificial teeth. It really depend on the doctor whos treating you is giving some kind of guaranty on artificial teeth which would vary from 5 years to 10 years to 15 years. No artificial teeth last for long. You would have to get them replaced eventually, if they break with time.

It looks like you have a errupting third molar (wisdom tooth) kindly visit a dentist who will advise you to remove the tooth if it is not errupting correctly. In the mean time do salt water rinses for symtomatic relief.

No in this situation you need a orthodontist consultation. According to your symptoms I feel like you are suffering from" tmd" that is temparomandibular disorder.

Hi lybrate-user, brushing should be under parent's supervision for a minute then can be done by the kid. Non- floridated toothpaste should be used till age of 3.

If irregular teeth are treated without braces between the age group of 8 to 13 years, the chances of relapse after braces is less. This can be treated only by a Child Dental Specialist - Pediatric Dentist. Generally, Braces should be used once the growth of jaws is over, which is generally after 12 to 13 years of age. This is the holistic way of treating irregular teeth.

Hello as per your query a continuous and throbbing toothache radiating to ear and side of the head can be due to tooth infection caused by caries in the oral cavity. In case the toothache is only surrounding the tooth then it will be due to food lodgement in the gums through a cavity between 2 adjacent teeth. Do pay a visit to a dentist.

Drink lots of fluid and eat nutritious soft food on the day of the extraction. You can eat normally as soon as you are comfortable. Eat soft foods, such as soup, pudding, yogurt, or applesauce the day after the extraction. You will be fine in few days.

Which type of medicine are used in mouth opening because my mouth is not properly open and not eating any spicy food.
Quit habits strictly. Seems like you have oral submucous fibrosis (osmf). Kindly consult an oral & maxillo facial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need conservative or surgical management for mouth opening depending upon the stage of osmf. Advise full mouth opening, ballooning exercise & side to side movement of the jaw. Wrap 25 to 30 ice-cream sticks, make a bundle, put it between upper & lower front teeth for 15 minutes thrice a day increase 1 sticks each day.

Hello lybrate-user, good news is age is not a bar for orthodontic treatment, I totally understand your concern, we have an option of treating our patients with invisalign (aligner) nowadays. Which is totally transparent and invisible you can carry out your day to day life without any discomfort. When the aligners are installed for the first time you may feel little discomfort since it applies pressure on your teeth but you will be alright in few hours. Finally the greatest advantage is you can see your post treatment results even before starting your treatment.

Any toothpaste containing fluoride is good for tooth. Fluoride helps to prevent decay. But if once you got decay, it cant be cured by toothpaste or any medicine. You have to go for filling of teeth only.
