Feel pain in my wisdom teeth what can I do its feel like pumping blood in inner part of gum and feel pain.

Dentist, Jalgaon
Feel pain in my wisdom teeth what can I do its feel like pumping blood in inner part of gum and feel pain.
Hello Mr. lybrate-user Pain with wisdom teeth is very common. The pain may be of its position (it may be completely or partially impacted) which creats pressure on another tooth. Or if the tooth is tilted there are chances of food lodgement and if not get cleaned properly it can cause swelling gums and bleeding from gums sometimes and tooth can be decayed and higher risk of food lodgement and more pain. If wisdom tooth treatment is not done asap there is high risk of infection for the adjacent tooth. In case of ignorance with pain and bleeding related to wisdom tooth can cause cyst also. Try to clean your teeth after every meal with warm saline water and brushing also. And consult your dentist as soon as possible.

Hello, bleeding of gums could be because of deposits on teeth surface or food lodged in between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. Brush your teeth twice daily, night brushing is very important. Floss regularly. Rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

Around 50% of the time one or more wisdom tooth will be missing. Sometimes it can be embedded in jaw bone and not able to erupt in the mouth. An opg (orthopentamogram) x-ray will help to know what is the cause. You can get it done.

The mouth is home to hundreds of bacterial species with various nutritional preferences. These organisms usually enjoy proteins, and as they digest proteins several fetid substances arise. The role of volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) in producing bacteria that colonize over the tongue was recently understood as a main cause of halitosis (bad breath). The most common VSCs, such as methylmercaptan and hydrogen sulfite, can be detected by using organoleptic and objective methods. Treatment includes maintaining good oral hygiene, brush two times a day and gargle with salted water after meals, homoeopathic medicines will give you permanent solution.

There are many causes of yellow or discolored teeth. A few of the most common:------------- 1. Drinks: Coffee and red wine cause major damage to teeth. But other drinks with high acidity, such as soda, juices and even sports drinks can cause staining on the teeth. Even white wine is not far behind in staining our teeth yellow, because its tannins and acidic nature wear away at the tooth enamel. These Acidic drinks lowers the Ph of teeth below 6 thus causing corrosive wear and tear of teeths.--------------- 2. Certain Foods: Colored candies, popsicles and other bright foods can cause staining over time. Think of it this way – if your tongue turns a bright shade of blue, chances are your teeth are getting some of that discoloration, too. Even healthy foods such as berries (blueberries, cranberries, raspberries) can stain teeth. Ketchup, curry and other sauces can cause staining problems over time, too.----------------- 3, Natural Aging Process: Quite simply, teeth yellow over time. It’s a natural part of the aging process that the white protective coatings wear down over time. So the longer you have your teeth, the more likely they are to become yellow or discolored.---------------- 4. Most of us are guilty of at least some of the above (and none of us can stop time).----------------

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. Drink plenty of water. You may need chewing gum or sialogogues (pilocarpine 30 mg/day. Contraindications - include many lung conditions, such as asthma, cardiac problems, epilepsy and parkinson's disease). You may consult me in person. 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.

Hello lybrate-user Divya is not mature enough to brush by herself. First for a few days make a habit to clean her teeth by the finger itself after that you purchase small toothbrush for children and use any toothpaste for example pepsodent and you brush her teeth. And present some examples before her the way you brush so that she will learn to imitate you. Be an example before her. I think for now you r at 2nd stage. Tq.

Dental Implants - Types and Benefits

BDS, FICOI, MDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Dental Implants - Types and Benefits

Dental implants are a type of a treatment that is carried out to replace missing teeth. During the process of extracting a damaged tooth, the root and the crown are removed. So, a dental implant involves placing a tooth on a precise titanium insert which is surgically placed on the jawbone. These supporting inserts are placed in the jawbone because they fuse with the jawbone (similar to orthopedic plates) and thus provide a strong foundation for the replacement teeth. 

Why tooth loss matters? 
A missing tooth or teeth can not only take away from the beauty of your smile, but tooth loss can also have many negative effects on your oral health, including:

  1. Bone loss
  2. Shifting and drifting teeth
  3. Bite changes
  4. Chewing difficulty
  5. Wearing down of remaining teeth
  6. Changes in the jaw joint

Types of implant placement 
Whether an implant is placed immediately or in 2 phases depends on a variety of factors like bone density,initial fit of the implant during surgery,the other teeth,area of jaw,loads received during chewing etc.

Dental implant placement can be of two types

  1. Immediate single stage placement: In this type we place an implant and give you at least a temporary crown immediately,followed by a permanent crown shortly thereafter.
  2. Delayed (2 stage) Implants: Such a placement is usually to safeguard the implant from any early forces when its just healing and fusing within the bone.After the placement the implant is kept covered below the gum for 3 months and uncovered after this period to give you a permanent crown.

Benefits
Now that you know about the different types, it is time to move on to the benefits of getting these.

  1. Long lasting: Compared to other treatments such as tooth bridges which last for 5-10 years, dental implants can last for an entire lifetime if maintained properly.The only part to replace is the crown.
  2. Mimicking natural teeth: Your replacement teeth will feel similar to your actual teeth, so you do not need to worry about your self-image issues. Flash that wonderful smile of yours without thinking over it the second time.
  3. Preserve surrounding teeth: When an implant is inserted in place of a missing tooth, adjacent healthy teeth are not damaged.
  4. Comfort: Dental implants being a fixed replacement they have none of the problems that removable dentures or other substitutes may cause.Patients who replace all of their teeth with dental implants can feel more comfortable talking, smiling and eating.
