Make them learn how to brush properly. Observe them wether they are practicing right techniques for one week. You can use flouridated toothpaste. Apply pea size paste on tooth brush. Make them brush two times daily and rinse after eating anything.

I am 34 yrs old male. I have Adenoid disorders from last 3 months. Please help me.

PG Hom, London, BHMS

Hi the best solution for adenoids is to surgically remove them. However if you want to avoid undergoing the knife, the best kind of treatment for you will be homeopathic. Homeopathic medicines will not only decrease the size of adenoids but also prevent the recurrence.

Taking a large no. of medications often leads to a dry mouth. Increase your fluid intake or ask your dentist about an artifical saliva product or chew sugarless gum after a meal to keep your mouth moist.

In simple cavities which doesn't involve soft tissue part of tooth (pulp) all the carious part (dead and decayed part) is removed and permanent filling is done. Temporary filling is done when RCT is going on. Not in simple cavities.

Causes and Symptoms of Dental Abscess

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Causes and Symptoms of Dental Abscess

Dental abscess is characterized by pus formation in the teeth or the gums. This infection may occur either in the gums or the tip of the tooth. It usually occurs due to a bacterial infection which may enter the mouth through food, thus causing accumulation of plaque. If the plaque is not removed by following proper dental hygiene, then it may result in abscess.

The various factors that increase your chances of getting affected by dental abscess are a sugar rich diet and poor oral hygiene. You should brush your teeth to prevent symptoms of dental abscess. A diet that has too much sugar may lead to cavities that increases your risk of dental abscess.

Dental abscess may be classified into three types

  1. Periodontal abscess: This type of abscess occurs in the bone structures in the teeth
  2. Gingival abscess: This type of abscess occurs in the gums
  3. Periapical abscess: Periapical abscess occurs in the soft areas of the tooth

Causes:
Entry of bacteria through holes in the teeth may result in breaking down of the soft tissue under the enamel. The infection may result in the hole to penetrate the pulp in the teeth. The bacteria thus infects the bone present in the teeth causing Periapical abscess. The bacteria that infects as a result of plaque accumulation may lead dental abscess. This may also lead to formation of gaps in the teeth leading to infection in the inner areas of the teeth.

Symptoms
The symptoms of dental abscess are: 

  1. The teeth may become sensitive to hot and cold temperatures
  2. Pain during chewing food
  3. A persistent pain in the jaw that radiates to the ear
  4. You may experience a swelling in the face and the neck
  5. Tenderness in the lymph nodes in the neck
  6. You may experience symptoms of fever
  7. Presence of foul smelling fluid in your mouth

The teeth in better quality dentures don't deteriorate fast as compared to the lower grade. There is no difference in the functioning of both. The sooner the attrition of teeth take place the sooner you may have to opt fr changing of your denture. So discuss with your doc and den decide.

I advice you go for scaling (professional tooth cleaning) to remove the extrinsic stains and then polishing and then bleaching (tooth whitening) so as to remove the intrinsic stains and improves the tooth shade. Over all cost of treatment may be approx 6000-7000 rs. Overall procedure duration is 1-2 hr.

The treatment plan will be best deviced if we can have you some facial photos in the meanwhile for the advice 1 ortho will be a better option as it is non invasive 2 veneers will give quick results and the shape of the teeth can be altered.

See your dentist every six months. Your teeth may not look dirty from the outside, but bacteria and plaque lurks in places you cannot see in the mirror.

Get scaling done for plaque removal. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash. Brush regularly twice daily. Rinse after every meal. And if doctor suggests get bleaching done also.

Bette consult a sexologist or a good physician and get your test reports if any further test requirements they will better guide you. For rash you can use help plus gel /dologel-ct topical application after applying do nit rinse but you can spit along with it take multivitamin supplement syrup and cap both are available in the market for two weeks.

My teeth isn't growing now. It has stopped growing in between. I have only half teeth now what should I do?

Hi, Going by your description it seems you mean that entire teeth are not seen in mouth and only half of the teeth are seen. It may be a condition where your teeth hv fully erupted but are partly covered by excessive gums giving the impression that your teeth are not completely erupted. You may require crown lengthening procedure. It is a cosmetic procedure with excellent result potential. Pardon me if I hv misunderstood your question. If any other doubts feel free to consult using your free consultation. Send pics of your teeth if possible.
