Hello lybrate user, you would definitely need fixed orthdontic therapy to get your teeth aligned. There are various types of braces, starting from metal, ceramic, clear, lingual and more. The treatment cost depends upon the type of braces and the kind of problem you have. You need to visit an orthodontist to know the details. On average the duration of treatment may range from 1 and half to two years.

Hello, yellowness could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

There is so much gap in between all teeth of mine, mostly it gets strucked/ make place in between gaps of teeth, whatever I eat. Is there any solution for the problem?

Dentist, Bangalore
Hi, If alignment of teeth is not proper, this problem can b solved by orthodontic(braces) treatment and if alignment is normal then u can go for veneers which covers front surface so gap won't be visible.

I brush my teeth regularly twice a day but the colour remains yellowish, what can I do to whiten my teeth?

I brush my teeth regularly twice a day but the colour remains yellowish, what can I do to whiten my teeth?
Sir, for each people just like skin color, the tooth color will be different by nature and cannot be changed. You can visit a dentist and get a scaling procedure done. If the yellow color is external stains and dirt then that treatment will be effective. There are some procedures like bleaching to whiten the teeth if you are still not happy, but these are used in extreme cases where the teeth is very discolored only. You can ask your dentist to suggest a toothpaste for whitening the teeth, which may be effective to some extent.

MDS-Pedodontist
Dentist, Greater Noida
Children are the stars of everyone’s eyes. Their dazzling smile brightens everyone’s day. These beautiful teeth not only enhance their smile but are required for chewing, speech and normal growth & development. From childhood itself these pearly whites need care and protection. On getting infected, treating these very teeth can be a daunting task. "Baby teeth" are as important to infants and children as prermanent teeth are to older children and adults. Children's teeth actually start to form before birth! The first primary (”baby” or “milk”) tooth can appear in an infant as young as 6 months


Why are Milk teeth important?
As milk teeth fall out, it is a common misconception that they do not matter.
The primary teeth have a number of important roles:
• Essential in the first step of digesting food: chewing, biting and grinding
• Allow good pronunciation and speech habits
• Encourage normal development of the jaw bones and muscles
• Ensure there is enough room for permanent teeth to erupt
• Help your child feel comfortable about the way he/she looks
• Guide the permanent teeth to erupt at the correct position in the dental arch since the permanent teeth grow under the milk teeth
• Also, your child's general health can be affected if diseased baby teeth aren't treated.

Remember, some milk molars are not replaced until age ten to fourteen, so they must last for years

What would happen if milk teeth are not taken care of?
Tooth decay and disease present in milk teeth can cause pain and discomfort and can easily pass on to permanent teeth as they erupt. Milk molars remain in the mouth until around 10 to 12 years of age with lots of opportunity to pass decay on to their new permanent neighbors. If it spreads to the root, an infection in a decayed milk tooth can damage the developing permanent tooth lying directly underneath. Consequently, the permanent tooth may erupt either in the wrong position or may not erupt at all i.e. it may remain embedded in the gums.


Why a Pediatric Dentist?
In the same way that paediatricians are trained to meet a child's medical needs, a paediatric dental specialist is uniquely qualified to protect your child's oral health. Paediatric dentists have an additional two to three years of training at university paediatric facilities in addition to four year of dental study. They know how to deal with the behavioural aspects of children, how to make them feel comfortable, and to make the experience pleasant. Also, they are trained and qualified to treat special needs patients. Paediatric dentists have a holistic approach of handling a child patient whereby the dental visit becomes a pleasant experience and not a nightmare. The very reason they are well versed with the psychology of the child which aids in execution of treatment effectively & efficiently simultaneously instilling a positive dental attitude in those little ones

Eat Cheese After Meals

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 21 years old and male. I have bad smell in my mouth above 10years. Please give me a solution for this.

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS
Dentist,
I am 21 years old and male. I have bad smell in my mouth above 10years. Please give me a solution for this.
Smell from the mouth may be due to conditions present in the mouth and from stomach. Conditions in the mouth are poor oral hygiene i. E presence of plaque and tartar, poor salivary flow, or may be due to some gum infections. Problems from stomach may be due gastritis. Dehydration is also a common cause. Drinking adequate water may also relieve this. Kindly consult your dentist for further clarifications.

Cleaning of teeth that is scaling will only clean the stains or spots that are on the outer surface of your teeth if the stains are from inside of the teeth and you want to make it white thwn you should opt for bleach. It is of two types home bleach and in office clinical bleach. Depending upon the yellowness ypur doc would suggest you the option. Also if the stains are veryy severe then you may need to wear cap or cosmetically correct it.

Hi, From a very long time, my left side of the tongue is getting touched by 3rd molar teeth and my tongue is hurting, Have shown to doctors, some say it is nothing to do with teeth, have applied kenacort to tongue, have got teeth little bit grinded also, there is a slight relief from that but still it is rubbing against the teeth. What do I do? Please suggest.

Permanent solution to your problem is getting the third molar extracted from the concerned side. As you have mentioned you got some relief after grinding the tooth. Here is another permanent solution if you do not want tooth removal, mostly the 3rd molar is out of occlusion so it will not trouble you. Visit a dentist ask him/her to trim the molar tooth to maximum and an ultra thin cap fabrication for the same. Problem will be resolved. Thank you.

I have hole in my teeth it's big, is it possible to filling or have to go for root canal treatment.

BDS
Dentist, Delhi
I have hole in my teeth it's big, is it possible to filling or have to go for root canal treatment.
Hi lybrate-user, the hole in your tooth is actually a cavity which may have progressed to an advanced stage. Regardless of whether it pains or not, it is likely that it may require root canal treatment. However, sometimes large cavities can be filled using a soothing base material, depending upon the extent of involvement of tooth structure. To decide between filling and root canal treatment, it will be advisable for you to get an xray of the concerned tooth done. Even though there maybe no symptoms at this stage, the tooth can start aching anytime in the future. Therefore, I advise you to get the diagnosis done and the treatment initiated at the earliest.
