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.

Foods that are firm or crisp help clean teeth as they're eaten. As for example apples (otherwise known as nature's toothbrush); raw carrots, celery, and popcorn can be of help.

Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you: practice good oral hygiene. Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. Don't forget to brush the tongue, too. Replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or after an illness. Use floss or an interdental cleaner to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day. See your dentist regularly -- at least twice a year. He or she will conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and will be able to detect and treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor. Drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. Chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.

Fillings for Teeth and Root Canal Treatment

What happens when you have a cavity?

When tooth decay is limited there is no pain. All decay starts on the enamel. Sealants can be applied to reduce the acid attack on the teeth. If detected early, these can be very well managed by removing the decayed portion and filling it with tooth-colored composite resin restorations. Remember that even at a relatively late stage, when the tooth is broken / decayed badly it can built back to its original form.

Glass ionomer cement: this is used for small restorations, especially in primary or milk teeth in children, mostly for economic reasons.
Composites: composite resins attach themselves to the tooth by a chemical reaction. The biggest advantage is that they can be made to match the tooth with the appropriate shade.

Dental pain occurs when the complex supply of blood vessels and nerves (the pulp) is affected by bacteria as they burrow into the tooth layers (enamel and dentin), along with their noxious by-products and acid. The deeper the decay enters, higher the chances of infection and increasing intensity of pain.

What happens when you have a root canal?

Severe excruciating pain is experienced, when decay reaches the pulp is usually with a set of aggravating factors either hot and / or cold. Root canal therapy is required to save the tooth.

Root canal: in root canal treatment, basically the tooth is treated for the infection and all the diseased tissue of the tooth is removed and filled. With good treatment the pain should disappear in a few days. Remember that root canal can be done in single sitting and when done with adequate local anaesthesia (injection) they are pretty much pain free!

Usually a cap is required on the tooth. Ceramic crowns or caps are being made of ceramic material more often; gradually it is becoming the most preferred option since this looks and feels very natural.

Hey I have bad toothache specially at night What should I do about it

Ask Free Question
Hello , Toothache at night is often suggestive of pulpal disease if it occurs on lying down and if it is associated to chewing food then it may be an infection building up in your gums, or a combination of both. So apart from keeping some emergency painkiller like Diclomol, Ketorol DT u should consult a dentist as early as possible. Thank you n healing regards

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.
