Hello doctors, I went to the dentist 2 years before because my upper jaw teeth's are not in a proper ways like my front teeth was not in its proper position. So they advise me for braces and it was one and half year treatment. I opted for that treatment and when I got of my braces I was quite happy coz all my teeth were completely fine. But after 2-3 months I notice that my front teeth is again changing its position. I ask from my dentist and he is concerning me for re-treatment. What should I do? waiting for your reply. Thank you

You may need fixed or removable retainers after orthodontic treatment for maintenance. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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.

You need urgent attention by dentist to fill teeth, for root canal treatment and for teeth cleaning and gum curettage surgery. It will avoid further pain and agony of diseased teeth and gums. Hope for best of your oral health.

I am 32 years old lady. I have a cavity in my wisdom tooth. Can this be filled instead of removing as two of my hind teeth had been already removed and I have heard that removing of teeth makes eye sight weak. My eyes are already weak. So what shall I do?

MDS
Dentist, Kota
There is no relation between extraction of tooth and eye sight. Cavity in the wisdom tooth can be filled if the tooth is in self cleansing area. But if filling of the tooth wont help you much then extraction is the solution.

Don't Rush When You Brush
Don't rush, when you brush: for maximum results, brush your teeth for atleast 2 to 3 minutes.

I am having a gap between my front teeth. Its draining all my confidence to face and talk to someone. I wish to start treatment near dentist in order to reduce gap. How much month should I wear clip on teeth for making my front teeth more close and perfect? Please help me.

MDS - Orthodontics
Dentist,
Hi, it wil require 12 - 18 months of treatment with braces. If space is between all the front teeth then it is a simple braces case but diagnosis becomes highly important here, if space is only between two front teeth. In that case than you might be having upper frenum problem or sometimes their is an extra supernumary teeth in between your front two teeth that does not come out and with pressure causes the condition, in that case first get the cause of your condition first checked and then go ahead with braces treatment for a beautiful smile.

I have continuous tingling like needles pricking on the tip of my tongue. Also, I get white rashes too sometimes on my tongue. I had a root canal earlier. Also there are few cavities in my teeth which have been filled. Please guide me the cause of this and the solution. Thanks.

You may suffer from Thrush which s a fungal infection causing white patches and tingling sensation on tongue .Thrush s caused by yeast fungus Candida albicans. Reasons are (1) diabetes (2) malnutrition (3) chemotherapy (4) Drug abuse (5) immunodeficiency Treatment-treat the underlying cause first. Nystatin, amphotericin and miconazole oral suspensions are the antifungal medicine to be used. As of now, visit to the oral pathologist and get scrap test done .you can rinse with 3% diluted hydrogen peroxide for temporary relief from pain and burning sensation Regarding your history of root canal treatment and filled teeth, it has nothing to do with thrush.

Many time I clear plak from my bottom teeth but after some week again it starts though I brush properly How can I prevent it?

BDS
Dentist, Mohali
Complete scaling (professional cleaning) of your teeth will solve your problem. Its probably calcified (hardened) plaque also called calculus, deposited on your teeth near gum line which cannot be cleared by brushing.

The first thing needed for you to do is visit your nearest dentist. Get an examination done to gauge the extent of damage. Depending on the extent it could be managed in many ways. Simple filling veneers rct plus crowns.

My mother aged sixty has toothache in her broken teeth at the end of her jaw. Cold / hot water is creating problem while intake it. She wants her teeth to be removed. Kindly advice?

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Get an xray done of the tooth concerned.If she has blood pressure It has to be under control that is not over 150/90. If she has diabetes sugar should be in check pp not over 160. Any other serious ailments like coronary heart disease, cardiovascular diseases, renal / kidney disorder or liver disorders I suggest you get tooth extracted in a hospital with dental set up.Where if they have facilities they can rush you to emergency . A course of antibiotics to be taken 48 hrs prior the extraction.

Hi. There could be cavity in tooth causing pain. Mostly it might go for root canal treatment or if its wisdom tooth then go for extraction. A xray would surely confirm diagnosis.

Quit tobacco in all forms. The treatment will take time. There is no short course treatment. If you continue with tobacco you may end up getting oral cancer.
