Hello doctor, I consulted a doctor a month ago and he prescribed me to take omega 3 and vitamin capsules. I followed the same. Today I met a friend who is a Amway representative and he showed me a experiment in which he put the cut tablet on thermocol and it started to melt. So is it safe to continue or is that common experiment? Thank you doctor.

It is safe to continue if you can see benefits. Do not get misguided by one odd experiment. All drugs go through stringent quality checks before floating in the markets and getting prescribed.

If you are self-conscious because you have missing teeth, wear dentures that are uncomfortable or don't want to have good tooth structure removed to make a bridge, talk to your dentist to see if dental implants are an option for you.

Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth. They are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile. In fact, the development and use of implants is one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past decades. Dental implants are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. They are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth.

Most patients find that a dental implant is secure, stable and a good replacement for their own tooth.

There are generally three phases to getting an implant:

• First, the dentist surgically places the implant into the jawbone. Your dentist may recommend a diet of soft foods, cold foods and warm soup during the healing process.

• Next, the bone around the implant heals in a process called osseointegration. What makes an implant so strong is that the bone actually grows around it and holds it in place. Osseointegration means “combines with the bone” and takes time. Some patients might need to wait until the implant is completely integrated, up to several months, before replacement teeth can be attached to the implant. Other patients can have the implants and replacement teeth placed all in one visit.

• Finally, it’s time for the placement of the artificial tooth/teeth. For a single tooth implant, your dentist will customize a new tooth for you, called a dental crown. The crown will be based on size, shape, color and fit, and will be designed to blend in with your other teeth. If you are replacing more than a single tooth, custom-made bridges or dentures will be made to fit your mouth and your implants. The replacement teeth usually take some time to make. In the meantime, your dentist may give you a temporary crown, bridge or denture to help you eat and speak normally until the permanent replacement is ready.

If you are interested in dental implants, it's a good idea to discuss it carefully with your dentist first. If you are in good general health this treatment may be an option for you. In fact, your health is more of a factor than your age. You may be medically evaluated by a physician before any implant surgery is scheduled.

Chronic illnesses, such as diabetes or leukemia, may interfere with healing after surgery. Patients with these issues may not be good candidates for implants. Using tobacco can also slow healing.

I am having yellow teeth what should I do?
Hi naturally teeth colour varies from white to yellowish white. If you have stains on teeth surface you should go for bleaching. You can also try this remedy at home. Mix lemon juice and baking soda, rub on stained surface and rinse. Repeat this once in a week. Or mix salt and tooth powder and clean up with it daily.

Bad smell can also be due to unclean tongue. Start using tongue cleaner as well and get your teeth cleaned from dentist.

Dear lybrate user, space left empty by removing a tooth is not good because it leads to bone loss in that area. Also, the neighboring teeth and the teeth in the opposing arch also begin to show slight movement towards the empty space which disturbs the normal relation between upper and lower teeth. You are still at a growing age. Don't think of extracting your tooth and leaving the gap empty.

My jaw is poking outside nd I feel so ugly. Braces can set only my teeth in. What about my upper jaw? The only option is surgery? No other special braces can be worn?

Hi lybrate-user. Some people naturally have jaws either bigger or smaller than what is considered to be normal. If you are concerned about the appearance of your face/ jaw, you can consult an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for an evaluation. After a clinical and radiographic analysis, the conclusions can be drawn as to how much of a correction of the jaws do you require. Usually, in such cases, treatment consists of both, braces as well as surgery. Braces for the correction of the teeth, and surgery for the correction of the jaws. It is known as orthognathic surgery. Depending on the evaluation, you may require surgery of either single jaw or both the jaws. Hope this helps you. Take care.

How I get my teeth free from tartar what type of tooth brush should I use?

How I get my teeth free from tartar what type of tooth brush should I use?
Tartar has to be removed by complete scaling (cleaning) of teeth. Just a toothbrush can't help you to get rid of the tartar. Meanwhile you can use a toothpaste called snowdent (a product of indoco) before visiting a dentist. Though it may not help you much but it would be better to use it than other pastes.

Yellow layer on tooth surface could be because of deposits on your teeth. You need to visit the dentist and get a deep scaling and polishing done. Brush twice a day. Maintain proper brushing technique. Rinse after every meal. Floss regularly.

The tiny tots must use a toothbrush with a small rounded brush head and soft bristles. It helps in cleaning their milk teeth thoroughly.

Teeth pain while eating sweet n drinking cold drinks can be due to decay in tooth. Get your teeth x-rayed to determine the extent of decay. For bleeding gums, go for scaling and polishing.
