Dentist,
I am consult about my teeth? I have so much pain in my teeth n blooding also? What can I do?
Tooth pain is due to cavity formation and if the bleeds then may be its pulp is exposed and heavily swollen. But if your gum is bleeding then it is due to gingivitis. Go to your local dentist's office asap.

Clear Aligner Treatment: Modern Approach For Teeth Alignment Without Braces

Clear Aligner Treatment: Modern Approach For Teeth Alignment Without Braces

In contrast to traditional braces, which typically involve the use of a network of connected brackets and wires in order to enhance tooth mobility, clear or invisible aligners is a relatively new approach when it comes to aligning teeth and involves the use of a number of custom-made tight-fitting retainers, which can slip over your teeth easily.

Clear orthodontic aligners are generally used for patients who either have minor spacing issues or have mildly crowded teeth. Moreover, since clear aligners are custom made for a tighter fit, they are more suited for adults and late teenagers and not for young children who are still growing and developing their teeth.

Treatment
Initially, your doctor will try to correct your bite after, which he or she can proceed with fitting you several versions of aligners, which help make slight adjustments to move your teeth during the course of the treatment. Usually made of a clear acrylic or plastic material, clear aligners fit tightly over your teeth, but are removable for eating purposes or for brushing and flossing. Every few weeks, you will probably get a new aligner in order to help move your teeth into the desired location.

Duration
Depending upon how much your teeth need to be moved, treatment will generally take around ten to twenty four months to complete. However, if your teeth have but shifted just slightly, then treatment can be completed in just a matter of ten weeks.

Advantages
Advantages of using clear orthodontic aligners over traditional braces include:

  1. You won't be having a "metal mouth" as with metal braces
  2. Can be easily removed before brushing or flossing
  3. Maintains good long-term oral health
  4. Helps give a better and brighter smile

I have recently noticed a swelling under my right jawline, though it's not painful. Please advise as to what this could be.

A swelling in that region could be from a salivary gland, or an enlarged lymph node. It would be better to see an oral surgeon, or a dentist.

Hello If you mean SWALLOWING you might be suffering from desqamative gingivitis. There will be peeling of epithelium and reddening of the surface indicated. You sould be using corticosterid cream and 3% H2O2 mouthwash for it. If you mean SWELLING it may be due to other reasons like improper oral hygiene or due to side effect of some medications if you are using any presently. So visit your dentist. Get set soon.

There are plenty of reasons and plenty of solutions available for this problem. Specific solution needs so many conditions to rule out. In general you take vitamins supplements, drink plenty of water, reduce stress and apply topical gel for relief.

It is possible to recover from having loose teeth. However, you don't have time to waste! loose teeth or teeth shifting around in the mouth is a sure sign that gum disease has been active in the mouth for years. The teeth become loose when the bone and ligament that holds them in place is being destroyed. The truth is that if a person with loose teeth doesn't change their course, their teeth are going to drop out of their mouth one at a time. Gum disease generally develops because of improper brushing and flossing habits, although underlying medical conditions may have a correlation to greater incidence. The bacteria that are found in the mouth as a result of these poor habits begin to affect the surrounding bone and tissues below the gumline. Consult a periodontist at the earliest.

I spit too much while jogging, & it spit is very salty, like we spit during common cold. I am having this problem from last 2 years. What should I do?

BDS, Non-Resident J.R. in Dept. of Orthodontics, Certified oral implantologist, Advanced Aesthetics, Digital Smile Designer
Dentist, Jammu
This is due to excessive saline content or mixing of sweat with spit. Reduce salt intake or else increase water intake to strike a positive balance.

Hi, There are so many causes for Ulçers. Try to identify the root cause, like any sharp tooth edges, Old fillings, Vitamin deficiency etc. Tongue ulcers should not be there in the same place for more than 6 months. Apply Mucopain gel to the area, continue tablets. Take care.

Take precaution not to open your mouth so widely while yawning. Hold your chin by your palm while yawning. Take some muscle relaxant for pain along with moist hot fomentation.
