You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

Hi doc. I have issues with bleeding (swelling) gum. Sometime I notice it bleeding take place. Inside, I had done cleaning 1 year back. What should I do.

Dentist, Delhi
Its ok you ve done cleaning one years ago, but due to improper cleaning of teeth and oral cavity, calculus develops which leads to gingivitis and swollen gums. Scaling and polishing is the treatment you need.

Hormonal changes in women increase senitivity and may also lead to the occurance of gingivitis.

I have mouth ulcers repeatedly for a week and also for an month. So kindly give some advice to recover from it.

Mouth ulcer is most commonly caused by poor diet, nutritional deficiency, constipation or excessive stress. You need to start taking multi vitamins. Avoid junk food avoid excessive stress. Avoid too hot and spicy food.

I am 55 years old male and I am experiencing gum recession which is more sensitive to cold and hot water. On consulting a Dentist here in Shillong I was asked to undergo filling instead of gum treatment. Is there any solution to gum recession medically? I shall be highly obliged if you could prescribed medication.

Dentist, Amreli
It might be due to brushing and there might be shallow cavity which needs filling, and if other problem is there, then you need to consult gum specialist i.e. Periodontist.

I have cavity problem. I brush twice a day but cavity doesn't stop and in other tooths are also cavity started. What should I do and which toothpaste I use to prevent cavity?

Dentist, Ghaziabad
The cavities cannot be stopped or cured by any medicine or toothpaste. I would suggest you to consult a dentist at the earliest and get your cavities filled before it's too late. You can use a fluoride containing toothpaste to prevent caries but it is not a substitute for filling or restoration.

Dear lybrate-user, nerve block treatment is generally safe if performed by a qualified practitioner. Any treatment can have its side effects. You should ask your treating doctor to explain the procedure and its side effects to you. You should also ask your doctor any questions and doubts you have. Your doctor knows what is the procedure to be performed. To understand your problem in detail I would like t have your symptoms and reports in detail. You may consult me or have a second opinion by a qualified practitioner.

My left side canal teeth thoda sa hil raha hai . How I fixed it by medicine & without cutting ?

Dentist, Gurgaon
Only medication would not solve your problem or may be of temporary relief. Also because you are too young to have tooth mobility you must visit your dentist at the earliest. Probably cutting would not be required. Till you see a dentist start with warm saline rinses thrice in a day which may stop the problem from aggravating.

What You Need to Know About Invisible Braces?

What You Need to Know About Invisible Braces?

Few people are lucky enough to be born with a set of perfectly aligned teeth. This fact and the pursuit for beautiful smile led to the development of braces. Traditional braces did help realign teeth, but are uncomfortable and affect a person's appearance while they are in use. Ceramic braces are less noticeable as the brackets are clear or tooth coloured. Invisible braces are the latest in dental realignment therapy. They are virtually invisible and are not associated with any dietary restrictions unlike the earlier forms of braces.

Invisible braces are also known as aligners. Aligners are similar to mouth guards in appearance, but are custom built to fit tightly around the patient's teeth. These slip over the teeth and are designed to be removed and replaced every fortnight. Aligners may also be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Each set of aligners vary slightly so as to move your teeth forcefully and correct your bite.

Treatment time of invisible braces depends on how much the teeth needs to be moved. In most cases, treatment takes between 10 months to 24 months. Aligners are also often used by adults who wore braces as children to correct slight displacement of teeth. In such cases, treatment could take as little as 10 weeks.

However, not everyone can get invisible braces. Aligners are custom built to fit tightly over teeth. This makes them unfit for use on children teeth as their teeth are constantly growing and developing. This is typically used for patients suffering from mild to moderately crowded teeth or those who have minor spacing issues between teeth. It can also be used as a follow up form of treatment for traditional braces.

Invisible braces are also slightly more expensive as compared to traditional braces as they are custom fitted.

The first step towards getting invisible braces is an X-ray, dental photographs and impression of the patient's teeth, gums and bite. These are then used to create a digital 3D representation of the patient's teeth in their current positions and their desired positions. The in-between stages are then created by moving the teeth .25 to .33 millimeters in each stage. The number of intermediate stages depend on the extent teeth need to be moved. Each stage is representative of an aligner to be worn for 2 weeks. If a tooth needs to be pulled away or rotated, a small, composite attachment may be bonded to the tooth.

The biggest advantage with invisible braces is that they can be worn without making a person self-conscious.

I mostly suffer from constipation and mouth ulcers. How to cure this problem. Mouth ulcers are very painful.

Certified Implantologist, Fellow of Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD), BDS
Dentist, Kolkata
Do lukewarm saltwater gargling whenever you feel there is an ulcer and then be on a soft and cold diet at the same time. Avoid smoking or use of any tobacco. Get your constipation problem sorted out by visiting a gastroenterologist. N as well I can go for a tooth check up like if there is any sharp teeth which arr actually causing this ulcer thing in your mouth. Then grinding of the sharp tooth cusps can be done to omit the local irritation hope this will help thanks.

My teeth is paining is there any tablet or any medicine for this please suggest me as it is paining too much.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Sir when there is infection in the tooth painkiller might stop the pain for 2 or three days. It is not the permanent solution. So please get your teeth checked by a dentist and he will give you the right medication and will also suggest the treatment after examining. That will be the permanent cure.

Hello get it filled by dentist. If it's starts paining then direct filling would nitin be possible. In that case we need to do RCT. Which will cost you much more. So it filled by your dentist.
