Well, looks like your child is suffering from a viral infection. You can continue the medicines for fever and cold as suggested by your nearby pediatrician. For ulcers you can apply small amount of Zytee gel over the ulcers three to four times a day for 3 days. Its for pain relief. Also give syp. Becostar 5 ml once daily for 2 weeks. It contains B- complex vitamins that can help in healing.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need chewing gum or sialogogues (pilocarpine 30 mg/day. Contraindications - include many lung conditions, such as asthma, cardiac problems, epilepsy and parkinson's disease). You may consult me in person too. 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.

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.

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.

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 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

6 Signs You Might be Suffering From Periodontal Disease

6 Signs You Might be Suffering From Periodontal Disease

Many adults suffer from Periodontal disease, which may result in slight swelling of the gums or something more severe as grave damage to the bone and tissue, which holds on to the teeth. After the onset of Periodontal disease, dental care is essential as it will determine the progress of the condition. 

What are some of the causes of Periodontal disease?

  1. Smoking is one of the main causes of gum diseases. Moreover, it also reduces chances of effective treatment.
  2. Hormonal changes in women make the gums increasingly sensitive; as a result they become more susceptible to the onset of gingivitis.
  3. Diabetic patients are more likely to develop infection of the gums.
  4. The ongoing treatment for serious medical conditions like AIDs and cancer can also cause Periodontal Disease.
  5. Genetics also plays an essential role in the onset of gums diseases. 

What are the symptoms of Periodontal disease?

  1. Persistent foul breath 
  2. Red inflamed gums 
  3. Tender gums with some amount of bleeding 
  4. A sensation of pain while chewing food 
  5. Loose teeth
  6. Teeth sensitivity 

In case these symptoms are experienced, a dentist should be immediately consulted.

How is Periodontal disease treated?

  1. The most effective way of treating Periodontal disease, is by controlling the progression of the condition. The type of treatment generally depends on the extent of the disease. 
  2. Generally the doctor begins treatment by cleaning out the plaque, through a process called scaling and root planing. Scaling gets rid of the tartar from the gums and root planing removes rough spots from the root of the tooth, where bacteria generally accumulate and breed. Sometimes, a laser is also used for the same. 
  3. After the cleaning is done, certain medicines are recommended and the doctor recommends strict oral care. 
  4. If the diseases continue to worsen, a surgical treatment may be recommended. 
  5. Some surgical treatments include flap surgery and bone and tissue grafts.
  6. Scaling should be done every 6months.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
