Dentist,
What is meant by root canal treatment for teeth. what to do?
Root canal treatment is a procedure in which the infected nerves are removed from the teeth and filled with gutta percha material to save your teeth. After the root canal treatment there is no pain to the patient and the tooth is saved from extraction (removal) of teeth. Consult the dentist and he/she can tell you what kind of treatment you require for your problem.

Want Sparkling White Healthy Teeth - 5 Ways You Can Get them

Dentist, Delhi
Want Sparkling White Healthy Teeth - 5 Ways You Can Get them

If you thought dental health could take a backseat amidst other demanding health problems, you surely haven’t experienced the unbearable pain of tooth cavities. Problems pertaining to your teeth could be many. From open nerve endings to weak and brittle teeth, anything could plague you. To take proper care of your teeth, you should visit your dentist frequently.

A few basic ways to maintain healthy teeth

  1. Pay heed to the kind of toothbrush you use: The kind of toothbrush you use plays a key role in discerning the health of your teeth. Many tend to use toothbrushes with hard bristles for brushing; this causes the enamel of your teeth to wear away. As a result, the dentine shows and a person reveals yellowish teeth every time he or she smiles. To soften the bristles of your toothbrush, you could wash it in lukewarm water prior to brushing.
  2. Certain food items should be strictly avoided: Junk food or packaged food is not just harmful for your overall health, but also for your teeth. Any food rich in starches or sugars can have acidic effects on your teeth enamel. Acids can corrode the enamel of your teeth. Hence, one should remember to consume food items that contain little amounts of sugar and starch. The reason why everybody around prohibited you from having too many chocolates as a child can be realized in the aforementioned point.
  3. Brushing and flossing routine: It is absolutely essential to brush your teeth twice daily. Flossing is what makes brushing effective. Many people are not aware of the right way to floss. Flossing should be done in a way so as to get rid of plaque that tends to settle down in between your teeth or right underneath your gums. The floss should be curved in the shape of a C for proper cleaning. Deposition of food particles when left to rot inside your mouth can cause graver problems other than bad breath.
  4. Give up your addiction: Smoking can kill the well-being of your teeth. It reduces the amount of blood circulated into a person’s mouth thus, making him or her more prone to the risk of oral cancers. Your chances of contracting periodontal diseases also increase when you smoke. So, healthy teeth and smoking can never go hand in hand.
  5. Never eat too many snacks: Eating in between meals or binge eating generally causes a lot of harm to your dental health. The more number of snacks a person intakes, the more is the concentration of sugar on his or her teeth. Care should be taken to eat four complete meals a day and less of snacks which are rich in sugar or carbohydrates. If you wish to discuss about any specific dental problem, you can consult a specilized dentist and ask a free question.

Reasons of bad breath in mouth? I am suffering from this, please help me with it.

Certified Implantologist, Fellow of Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD), BDS
Dentist, Kolkata
Reasons of bad breath in mouth? I am suffering from this, please help me with it.
There are basically two primary reasons for a bad breath. First is if you r suffering from gastritis then there can be bad breath due to that. Secondly if you have any deposits over your teeth or if your gums bleed while brushing and also an unhygienic tongue can too be the one amongst all this. So get a tooth check up done by a dentist n then sort out this if the reason is second one. What the dentist has to do is scaling and followed by polishing n then giving you the oral hygiene instructions hope this will help

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

Hi lybrate-user, teeth that assume a new position under the force of braces have a tendency to move back to their original position with time. To prevent this, after fixed braces have played their role, patients are provided with a temporary/removable appliance that serves to strengthen the bone and helps teeth be in their newly acquired position. It appears that you have not worn your retentive appliances (the temporary appliance) regularly.

Wisdom teeth can erupt anywhere between the age of 17 years and the mid-20s. It is usually accompanied by pain, sensitivity, and discomfort in chewing food. The pain also may radiate to head, neck and ear. For transient relief, you can go for pain killers and any antibacterial mouthwash, to keep the area clean, which may be difficult to clean otherwise with a toothbrush. Permanent treatment usually involves either removal of the gum tissue covering the wisdom tooth (if it is present in your case), or extraction of the tooth. Extraction will not cause you any problem with eating food, and it doesn’t need to be replaced, unlike other teeth. I suggest that you consult me privately on Lybrate. In private/video consultation, looking at the exact condition, I will be in a better position to solve your query, and prescribe appropriate medication.
