MY UPPER 2 TOOTH WERE REMOVED 2 YEARS BACK & PLACE IS EMPTY. WHAT IS THE BEST CURE & EXPENDITURE EXPECTED SIR?

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Don't keep that place empty because nearby teeth will start moving and will close the gap and you will face biting and jaw problem. U can go for dental bridge means artificial teeth unit.Its like cap only but requires support of two adjacent teeth. If u can afford implant is the best option for you that will cost you around 30k

5 Oral Symptoms You Should NOT Ignore

Dry Mouth

Dry mouth, or xerostomia, is a very common oral condition, especially as you age. There are also more than 425 medications that include dry mouth as a side effect. But dry mouth can be related to issues beyond dental health. It?s also a common symptom of diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, systemic lupus erythematosus, and Sjogren?s syndrome. If you have chronic dry mouth, you should be concerned and talk to your dentist.

Mouth Sores

Did you know that a white or red patch on the tongue or lining of the mouth is the most common sign of oral cancer? But don?t be alarmed: Mouth sores are completely common and the chance your sore signals cancer is low. To be safe, show your dentist any sores in your mouth that don?t heal after two weeks.
Mouth sores from oral cancer tend to occur along with other oral conditions, such as a strange taste in the mouth, problems chewing, pain when you swallow, and having trouble with speech.

Sour Taste In Your Mouth

If you frequently have a sour taste in your mouth (which is often mistaken for bad breath), it could be another sign of GERD, especially if it?s accompanied by a sore throat, chest pain, and a hoarse voice, Leader warns. Besides this oral condition and?dental erosion, GERD can lead to other problems such as an esophageal ulcer and inflammation of the esophagus. If you suspect you have GERD, get tested and treated as needed.
Swollen Gums
--------------------
Swollen gums is another sign of gum disease. An old school remedies says to just gargle with salt water and ?everything will be alright.? Even if you believe you have healthy teeth, swollen gums absolutely require a visit to the dentist. Your dentist or dental hygienist will be able to tell right away if you have gum disease ? but you can check for swollen gums yourself by drying your gums with a napkin or a tissue and looking in the mirror. Although your swollen gums may feel fine, they tend to bleed during brushing.
In addition to swelling, this dental health problem also causes red gums. (Most light- and dark-skinned people naturally have pink gums, but some people of Mediterranean and African descent have darker gums).

Stinky Breath

Last but not least, everyone experiences stinky breath, right? Wrong. Brushing and flossing (including brushing your tongue or using a tongue scraper) should nip in the bud but when it doesn?t, it?s a problem. It could be a sign of advanced gum disease, so it?s important to talk to your dentist before this oral condition ruins perfectly healthy teeth.
Most of the time, however, the biggest bad-breath culprit is your diet. ?Onion, garlic, and pungent spices will produce mouth odor for hours after consumption,? Dr. Leader says. In addition, people who have uncontrolled diabetes, eat a high-protein diet, or suffer from alcoholism tend to have breath with a sweet or fruity odor.

Cleaning teeth will help to remove stains and calculus from teeth. Cleaning will never make teeth white. To make teeth white you should do teeth bleeching it can make teeth white and it stays for 6 months if you maintain it properly. Using veneers or crowns will stay for longer duration visit a endodontist or oral medicine specialist to get opinion.

Sir last 2 month in my mouth have ulcer is not going what should I do please help me.

Sir last 2 month in my mouth have ulcer is not going what should I do please help me.
If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

I have tooth decay. Recently I have got with temporary feeling. Sir how to deal with this?

I have tooth decay. Recently I have got with temporary feeling. Sir how to deal with this?
Is there any problem you r facing after you have got this temporary filling done? if so, just step in for a complete tooth check up. If required I will perform an xray for you to see why is it causing trouble and after doing temporary filling if you r not facing any problem then just get the permanant filling done within a month and hopefully everything will be alright. Now to deal with dental problems you just got to get a complete tooth check up done by a dentist once in every 6 months which is very important so that other teeth does not get decayed n if so at least can be diagnosed. Not all the time when a tooth is decayed, a filling is required. No. Even just a simple dental varnish application over the decayed part of the tooth can also at many times save the tooth from further decay or losing its strength. Hope this helps

I recently have componeer in my front three teeth can I drink tea or can I bite hot pizza or cold ice cream.
As long as you are biting on soft food stuffs such as pizza or ice cream, componeer will not get affected. Irrespective to that, you can have any liquid diet hot or cold. Longevity of restoration primerly depends on material used and skill of operator. Later it depends on how you maintain it. THANK YOU.

OHI index and DMFT index are used to measure the oral health. Wisdom tooth removal is a routine process to remove crooked or submerged wisdom molars so that the overall health of the mouth is maintained. Your doctor will surgically remove the wisdom tooth under local anesthesia. You may have only mild discomfort which subsides in a few days.

Some types of medication can also cause bad breath. Medications associated with bad breath include: nitrates – which are sometimes used to treat angina (chest pain caused by a restriction in the blood supply to the heart) some chemotherapy medication tranquilisers (phenothiazines) If the medication you're taking is causing bad breath, your General Physician may be able to recommend an alternative.

This habit is called bruxism. Habit of grinding teeth or clenching their jaw under stress. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion.

This is cavity problem. When the cavity reaches deep into the nerves then the feeling of pain is experienced. For temporary relief you can take painkillers but permanent solution is getting them filled. If the cavities r deep then rct is required.
