My Orthodontic treatment is going on. First the dentist charged Rs. 15,000 for the braces (removable metal plates) and then Rs. 1,500 every month for consultation. And now he said that he will convert that braces into retainer and I will have to give around Rs. 3,000 for material cost. Other than this for Metal filling (cavity) and scaling he charged about Rs. 5,000 I want to know whether he is charging more than the actual cost.

madam, the charges varies from place to place and from dentists to dentists. Also the cost is calculated on the amount of materials used. As the cost for ortho materials are more so the treatment charges are more.

You can go for a ceramic crown over that tooth. Or a composte filling. But filling might fracture if you bite into hard object. So better go for ceramic cap.

7 Ways You Can Prevent and Manage Periodontal Disease!

7 Ways You Can Prevent and Manage Periodontal Disease!

The gums are also called the periodontium - perio for around and dontium for tooth as the gums are literally present "around the tooth." There is a softer mucosal portion that runs along the tooth in a curved manner and a stronger fibrous portion that connects the tooth to the jaw bone. Together, they provide the structural support for the tooth to be held in place. In addition, they also have an esthetic value with the healthy pink color. The mouth has the largest number of bacteria in the body, which act on the food debris that is present on the tooth and the gums. This causes infection in both the gums and the tooth. 

Types: Periodontal disease can be localized or general. 

  1. Localized disease happens when a tooth is not accessible for thorough cleaning. The inside surface of lower incisors and outer surfaces of the upper last molars are common areas of localized periodontal disease. 
  2. Generalized periodontal disease can be due to conditions like pregnancy, puberty, diabetes where gums around all the teeth are affected. 

Symptoms: In both the cases, the following symptoms: 

  1. Fiery Red gums 
  2. Swollen and/or painful gums 
  3. Spontaneous bleeding from the gums: This may be localized or generalized 
  4. Chronic bad breath: Due to food accumulation in the infected gums 
  5. Pus from the gums when the gums are pressed 
  6. Bad taste in the mouth (arising from pus in the gums) 
  7. Gingival recession, producing an effect of having longer tooth
  8. Sensitive teeth 
  9. Loosening of the tooth/teeth 
  10. Painful chewing, as it puts pressure on the inflamed periodontium 
  11. Dentist will identify what are called pockets, which is an indication of severity - the deeper the pockets, the severe the disease. 

Management and Prevention: 

Gum disease is very easy to identify and can be completely cured.

  1. Regular brushing and flossing can help maintain regular oral hygiene. 
  2. With each brushing session, plain finger massage of the gums improves blood circulation and their overall health.
  3. Regular use of mouth rinse is a good way to improve gum health. 
  4. Regular visits to the dentist can help keep a check on the health of the teeth and the gums - early identification of disease and early treatment. 
  5. Once it has set in, deep scaling followed by root planning may be required to thoroughly clear out the infection. 
  6. More surgical options like gingival grafts, flap surgery, bone grafting in case of severe bone loss may be required. 
  7. Management of conditions like diabetes The best way to avoid periodontal disease is to know its symptoms, follow oral hygiene practices, and visit a dentist regularly.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Oral thrush is a fungal infection which occurs due to dry mouth, uncontrolled diabetes, weak immune system or patient on corticosteroids. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need candid ointment until then. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal.

Thrush (Oral Candida Infection) in Children

What is thrush in children?

Thrush is a mouth infection that is common in babies and children. Symptoms include white or yellow velvety patches in the mouth. Thrush is caused by a type of fungus called Candida. Candida is found naturally on the skin and in the mouth. But if Candida grows out of control, it can cause thrush. Thrush is not a serious problem for a healthy child. It can be treated with antifungal medicine.

What causes thrush in a child?

Candida yeast is common in the everyday environment. It only causes a problem when it grows out of control. This can happen if a child:

  • Has taken antibiotics
  • Uses inhaled corticosteroids, such as for asthma
  • Uses a pacifier often
  • Has a weakened immune system

Which children are at risk for thrush?

A child is more at risk for thrush if he or she:

  • Had a very low birth weight
  • Passed through the birth canal of a mother with a yeast infection
  • Has taken antibiotics
  • Uses inhaled corticosteroids, such as for asthma
  • Uses a pacifier often
  • Has a weakened immune system
  • What are the symptoms of thrush in a child?

Thrush causes milky white or yellow patches to form on the tongue or inner cheeks. These patches can be painful and may bleed. Some babies have no pain from thrush. Others may have pain and be fussy and refuse to feed. It may hurt when your child swallows. Thrush can also cause cracked skin in the corners of the mouth. Symptoms can occur a bit differently in each child. The symptoms of thrush can be like other health conditions. Make sure your child sees his or her healthcare provider for a diagnosis.

How is thrush diagnosed in a child?

The healthcare provider will ask about your child’s symptoms and health history. He or she will give your child a physical exam. This will include looking in your child’s mouth.

My teeth is in yellow color and hair is in black to white colour why? Please help me.

My teeth is in yellow color and hair is in black to white colour why? Please help me.
There are several causes of tooth discoloration, including: foods/drinks. Coffee, tea, colas, wines, and certain fruits and vegetables (for example, apples and potatoes) can stain your teeth. Tobacco use. Smoking or chewing tobacco can stain teeth. Poor dental hygiene. Inadequate brushing and flossing. Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.
