I am 19 years old. Is it necessary to take off premolars in order to fix braces? Is it safe plucking off teeth?

Dentist, Bangalore
It depends on each cases, some cases require extraction and some cases does not require extraction, so kindly visit Orthodontist first so that he evaluate and come to devotion to remove or not. Teeth extraction is of course safe and a pain less procedure, if it is not safe then doctors don't advise for you :)

My incisor teeth have came forward a little bit. It is possible to level my teeth without clipping?

BDS, MDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Hello lybrate-user, there is a possibility to correct the alignment of your teeth without braces treatment but is a more invasive treatment which would involve grinding your original teeth and placing a cap over that teeth, but this procedure can be done only after root canal therapy of the teeth which are going to be grinded.

Open your mouth as if you are talking with someone. Now pull both the lips inwards and the corner of your mouth outwards. Try to stretch the corners of your lips as wide as possible. Now hold the face for a minute and relax. Do this exercise at least five times a day for better results.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Pain in teeth can be because of cavities. Get your teeth examined by a dentist to know the exact cause of pain. Cavities which are bigger & deeper require rct. Smaller cavities can be filled. Yellowing of teeth can happen if the teeth are not clean. Get your teeth cleaned by a dentist. If you are not happy with the color of your teeth after cleaning then you can get bleaching done.

Bad breath is due to accumulation of plaque on teeth, decay teeth, dry mouth, smoking, tobacco chewing, consumption of caffeinated or aerated beverages, oilly n spicy food, sore throat, bad digestion. Go for scaling and polishing of teeth. Use mouthwash twice daily after brushing. Maintain proper oral hygiene. Increase your water intake.

I have toothache since last night. I have used painkillers but yet not cured. What should I do?

BDS
Dentist, Lucknow
Teeth pain may be due to various reasons like infection, sensitivity or trauma. If your teeth is decayed it is better to get it filled or treated by a dentist. If you are opting for root canal treatment do not forget to get a crown on the effected tooth. If you want to go for only medicinal treatment so let me tell you only medicine are not going to be very effective untill you get this treated by a dentist.

I have mouth ulcer problems from 2 days Please give me suggestion to overcome this problem.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

I was playing hockey and I have broken my teeth and now help me how to get treatment for this and from where?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
If the tooth breaks, have the tooth contoured. Fill the crack in. Place a crown on your tooth. If the tooth has been badly damaged and the nerve or pulp is exposed, the dentist may have to perform a root canal to save the tooth. If the tooth has been severely damaged, it may have to be extracted.

My teeth are yellow. In the corner of the teeth thre is white and bad smelling things which is not removed very well thr .

Dentist, Gurgaon
this is calculus about which you told us. it gets accumulated between and around the teeth causing gum infection and bad breath. if not taken care, causes bleeding gums. visit a dentist for professional cleaning of your teeth. start warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day. ask for polishing also, this will help in improving the colour of your teeth.

My teeth is in yellow in colour. I have used many tooth paste but there is no difference. I do not know what to do. Can you please tell me?

Yellowish teeth teeth changes its colour as we all age due to dietary habits ie, carbonated drinks contain colours, red wine, few fruit juices (pomegranate, raspberry, cranberry, etc.), tea, coffee, turmeric used for foods sometimes depending on the area you reside the increased amount of iron in your water can also discolour your teeth. Lets understand this better, tooth has a top layer called" enamel" - white layer tooth has the layer beneath this called" dentine"- yellow layer enamel is white- white layer dentine is yellow- yellow layer if you see all the young kids, including you during your younger age will have white teeth. Due to the presence is more of white layer. As we advance with age the teeth change its colour to yellowish. Because the white layer becomes thin and the yellow layer shows from inside. So this is natural and nothing to worry about it. Well apart from this the foods we consume as I mentioned earlier can also stain the teeth which needs professional cleaning by the dentist. But professional cleaning will take away the stain on the surface but not whiten your teeth. Yes there are proceedures like" bleaching, done with caution can whiten your teeth. Please discuss this with your dentist. Caution: please do not use any whitening products for teeth sold online or in shops as they can be more abrasive and acidic making the teeth loose its luster and also make it more yellowish over a period of time also do not try home remedies like baking soda, lime, salt, vinegar as these are highly acidic and abrasive and will make your teeth rough as well as loose the white layer of your teeth more quickly. Please visit your dentist for professional help and discussion I hope I clarified you.
