Yes you can go for a smile makeover. Cost can be discussed only after seeing your teeth. This will correct the problem in a small amount of time compared to braces.

Hello mam, you are aware of your problem, we would suggest you visit a dentist to start with your orthodontic treatment as it becomes more difficult to get good and faster results with age. The duration and cost of treatment is variable as there is a wide variety of materials available.

I have a massive teeth problem. What to do?

BDS
Dentist,
I have a massive teeth problem. What to do?
Kindly get an x-ray done of the tooth having pain. May be you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown or cap. Till then you can take a pain killer like tab dentaforce dt 2 tablets dissolved in water. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

How long after a tooth extraction before eating and drinking?

BDS (GOLD MEDALIST)
Dentist,
How long after a tooth extraction before eating and drinking?
Hi, after tooth extraction you can eat an icecream as it controls bleeding also. And the day of extraction take soft food which you can easily swallow like porridge, halwa or khichdi after 2-3 hours. Do not take too hard food until it comoletely heals.

Since your tooth is paining, you have to undergo root canal treatment (rct). After successful rct, cap/crown is placed to strengthen the tooth as tooth becomes brittle after rct. So naturally cap is required for strengthening left over part of tooth and it also helps to restore the function of tooth properly.

A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure.We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. Advance procedures can be done with laser. 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.

How generat new teeth?

BDS
Dentist,
You cannot generate the new teeth (permanent) once you lost it. The only thing you can do to save them in time. Regular dental check up and cosultation with the dentist will help you to save the teeth which you have. And replace the missing teeth with the artificial teeth.

Sorry I have questioned about mouth ulcers. Kindly tell me the best medicine to remove ulcers from my mouth.
Ulcers are usually due to vitamin deficiency or bad digestion. Other causes are stress, change in lifestyle, allergies to certain foods and medication, dry mouth, trauma from teeth, spicy n oilly foods. Start taking vitamin supplements. Apply local anaesthetic ointment like dologel. Avoid oilly spicy foods completely. Gargle with warm salt water 7-8 times a day.
