Dr. I have my wisdom tooth coming out. I went to the dentist and she gave me ketorol Dt as the pain killer. But it is hardly controlling my pain for 3 hrs and I have to take it again after 3-4 hrs. Is it safe to take it like this?

BDS
Dentist, Chennai
Hi no it's not good to take such high dose. Please take an x-ray of the tooth if the eruption is impacted you can very well extract it as that will. Be a good solution. Extracting the wisdom tooth won't disturb your chewing.

Hello doctor I want to ask some thing about teeth problems sir my teeth are very front so what should I do.?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
We need more investigations (Model study, Full mouth & profile x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need fixed / removable braces or surgical correction (Functional or cosmetic). Requirements may depends on the age, complaint, duration of the treatment & affordability. Cost of cosmetic dentistry (braces or surgical correction) varies with dentist. If you prefer surgery, it?s a short duration procedure done under general anaesthesia. Recovery time is short with absolutely no pain. However swelling will subside between 5 to 7 days. 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.

Honey and pepper are simple phlegm remedies. Mix a pinch of pepper to a spoon of honey and have this mixture twice a day for a week. Another simple measure is to cut a slice of lemon, sprinkle it with salt and pepper, and suck on the lemon slice. This will help to clear the throat easily. A tonic made out of ginger, onion, and sugar is a very effective home remedy for phlegm. You will need to clean and finely chop a small onion. Place this in a bowl along with a teaspoon of grated ginger and two spoons of sugar. Toss the mixture well and then keep it aside for 20 minutes. Sugar is a humectant which means that it helps to draw out the liquid from within the onion and garlic. You will find that the tonic is sweet and does not have the pungent taste and aroma of onions. Onions and garlic are rich in several compounds that act as natural antibiotics. This can also be used as a tonic for phlegm in kids as its sweet taste is quite irresistible to children. This tonic helps to bolster the immune system and thus helps to reduce the severity of the infection. It also helps to increase the fluidity of the phlegm and allows it to be easily expelled from the body. The tonic also helps to soothe the throat which makes it especially effective in treating a sore throat.

I clean my mouth 4 times a day still I have bad breath. Why and what is the reason?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. 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 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.

Dentist,
Eating a piece of cheese after a meal helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. And since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

I am 45 year male. No diabetes. Only taking bp tablets telsar a. I having very bad smell in mouth from a year. Doing two times brushing, tried also all mouth wash. Problem not solved. Please help.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Are you suffering from dry mouth? the bpmedication could alter the salivary flow so increasing halitosis or bad smell. Other cause could be due to gastro intestina/ acidity. Avoid fried, fatty, oily, cheesy, buttery, spicy foods. Take lot of fluids, water, coconut water, limewater, fresh fruit juices, buttermilk, avoid soda and carbonated drinks. Avoid alcohol and tobacco in all forms. Brush teeth with fluoride tooth paste, use mouthwashes, use dental floss regularly. Get your teeth cleaned and polished by dentist once in 3 months.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

What is Root Canal Treatment?

What is a root canal?

Root canal is a layman's term to describe a dental procedure that is performed to preserve a tooth that is at risk of being lost due to deep decay, infection, or other forms of trauma. Endodontic therapy or root canal treatment are the dental terms to describe this procedure. Root canal treatment is the removal of the infection-prone contents within the tooth and its roots. Subsequently, the resulting space is filled with an inert material to prevent infection. This treatment thoroughly disinfects the tooth's inner space. Root canal treatment enables a tooth to remain intact to function and serve its purpose in the mouth despite losing its vitality. Vitality is the tooth's ability to sense pain, pressure, or temperature. Prior to the implementation of root canal treatment, if a tooth had a large cavity or was abscessed, the only option was extraction of the bad tooth. All in all with Root Canal Treatment, we get to preserve a natural tooth and restore good dental health.
