Bad breath has various reasons: main reason is improper oral hygiene. Clean your tongue properly. Infection of gums and periodontal problem is another common reason. Type of diet you take can also cause bad breath. Other causes are like systemic problems like liver and kidney problems, any specific medications, infection of any salivary glands etc. So consult the dentist to help you with it.

My cousin has just got a tooth removal what should he opt for bridge or an implant?
Implant can be placed only when there is good bone density and good healing process in your body,needs proper investigations before the treatment.But bridge can be placed if the tooth is strong in its place itself.And implant is costlier than bridge.Benefit of implant is-it donot involves the adjacent tooth.Both has its own pros and cons.Prognosis of both depends upon your case study.Kindly consult me in person.

I visited my dentist for straightening of my 26 years old sister' front teeth. He advised me for pre molar teeth extraction and told that it may take 2 years in complete treatment. Before that he is going to start pyorrhea treatment. I want to know has my dentist advised me right? how pyorrhea is treated? is this a surgical treatment? how much it costs? is teeth extraction 100 % safe or there is any risk? will after teeth extraction my sister smile/eat like normal?

BDS
Dentist, Durgapur
Upper arch expansion is newer approach for gaining space instead of extractiing premolars. So i' ll advice you not to go for extraction. Pyorrhea is infection of gums that makes your teeth weak & associated with bad breath. It is treated by nonsurgical means, scalling( cleaning debris deposit over your teeth) & root planing. Adjunct: chlorhexidine mouthrinse & warm saline mouthrinse.

Kindly get scaling and polishing done and if you want you can also get bleaching done. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. 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.

The permanent cure for a tooth ache is to visit a Dentist. Medicines are temporary cure. Moreover prior to give any medicine we need to know the Medical History of the patient like allergies and all then accordingly we can give any painkillers and antibiotics.

Periodontal Disease - 7 Ways You Can Manage and Prevent them

Periodontal Disease - 7 Ways You Can Manage and Prevent them

The gums are also called the periodontium which means perio for around and dontium for tooth as the gums are literally present "around the tooth."  There is a softer mucosal portion that runs along the tooth in a curved manner and a stronger fibrous portion that connects the tooth to the jaw bone.  Together, they provide the structural support for the tooth to be held in place. In addition they also have an aesthetic value with the healthy pink color.

The mouth has the largest number of bacteria in the body, which act on the food debris that is present on the tooth and the gums. This causes infection in both the gums and the tooth. 

Types: Periodontal disease can be localized or general.

  1. Localized disease happens when a tooth is not accessible for thorough cleaning.  The inside surface of lower incisors and outer surfaces of the upper last molars are common areas of localized periodontal disease. 
  2. Generalized periodontal disease can be due to conditions like pregnancy, puberty, diabetes problem where gums around all the teeth are affected.

Symptoms: In both the cases, the following symptoms ensue: 

  1. The gums are of a healthy pink color and if they turn darker hue of pink
  2. Swollen and/or painful gums
  3. Spontaneous bleeding: This may be localized or generalized 
  4. Chronic bad breath: Due to food accumulation in the infected gums
  5. If it continues to form an abscess, pressure on the gums can produce pus
  6. Bad taste in the mouth (arising from pus in the gums)
  7. Gingival recession, producing an effect of having longer tooth 
  8. Dentin is exposed leading sensitivity to hot or cold foods
  9. Loosening of the tooth
  10. Painful chewing, as it puts pressure on the inflamed periodontium
  11. Dentist will identify what are called pockets, which is an indication of severity - the deeper the pockets, the severe the disease.

Management and Prevention: Gum disease is very easy to identify and can be completely cured.

  1. Regular brushing and flossing can help maintain regular oral hygiene 
  2. With each brushing session, plain finger massage of the gums improves blood circulation and their overall health
  3. Regular use of mouth rinse is a good way to improve gum health
  4. Regular visits to the dentist can help keep a check on the health of the teeth and the gums - early identification of disease and early treatment
  5. Once it has set in, deep scaling followed by root planing may be required to thoroughly clear out the infection
  6. More surgical options like gingival grafts, flap surgery, bone grafting in case of severe bone loss may be required. 
  7. Management of conditions like diabetes

The best way to avoid periodontal disease is to know its symptoms, follow oral hygiene practices, and consult a dentist regularly.

Lybrate-user, root canal treatment (rct) is a surgical procedure, so it is better that before any such procedure blood picture improves. In fact hb 4.5g/100 ml, is too low. It may need packed cell (rbcs) transfusion. Or else should immediately start on iron preparations either capsules or if needed then injections. Hb g% should come to at least 8 to 10 g/100 ml, then operative procedure may be considered. Whether rct is done or not, she has to start on iron therapy immediately, becaus of very severe anemia. Such a condition will put severe strain on her heart function, thanks.

Tooth pain is such a state in which it is very important to visit dentist, because he can tell you the reason behind it and proper treatment also. For home remedies you can do warm saline rinses and if possible clove oil dressing in the cavity can give you temporary relief.

Get a second opinion from the dental surgeon. Which stage of rct is he on? ent consultation is a must to rule out whether the sinuses are involved or not.

Apical cyst can be treated by conservative means I,e by undergoing RCT but it depends on upon the size of leison. In some cases Apicectomy Is done along with RCT. So the actual time and cost depends on treatment plan.

As per your symptoms you need rct followed by crown that can be confirmed by xray. Start salt water rinse and avoid food lodgement. Visit your dentist before your tooth becomes unrestorable.

You can start using a sensitive toothpaste. Take a little bit toothpaste on your finger and massage it on the sensitive teeth. Leave for 6-8 minutes and then rinse off.

Hello lybrate-user. Go for scaling and curretage of teeth and also there are chances that you have a decayed tooth which needs filling. Till then brush twice daily and use vantej paste.
