I'm suffering with toothache from one week. Cavity is there for tooth. What should I do?

BDS
Dentist, Bilaspur
Hello. Immediately show it to a dentist. Don't use over the counter available medicines as it may lower the pain but won't cure it. A dentist may recommend either a filling or a root canal or if the tooth has gone beyond repair may suggest extraction but certainly he would be the one offering the advice.

Dental implant can be placed in a patient with diabetes but with utmost care and precautions. The patient must be under medication and the glucose level should not exceed the upper limit. Also post implant placement care such as oral hygiene should be maintained.

Sometimes after traumatic or difficult extraction leads to formation of scar tissue (gaanth. It will be of normal pink-brownish colour with no pain on touching. But it never became big and small with time frequently. Consult with some other dentist.

The best precaution to keep teeth white is to keep them clean and healthy. Best way is visit your dentist regularly and follow the advise, get cleaning and polishing done and maintain hygiene by brushing your teeth twice a day and using listerine mouthwash.

Maybe the brushing technique is not correct, so brush thoroughly for atleast 2-3 minutes and get a scaling done from a dentist.

How to Fix the Gap between the Teeth?

BDS, PGMHA

How to Fix the Gap between the Teeth?

An obvious gap between the teeth may be caused due to a condition known as Diastema. This usually manifests as space between two teeth. This condition is caused due to a mismatch between the size of the bones in the jaw and the size of the teeth. This in turn, gives rise to extra space between the two teeth and may also lead to overcrowding of teeth in the mouth. The space usually occurs when the teeth are too small and the jaw is larger. Also, an oversized tissue known as the labial frenum can cause a gap between two teeth. Let us look at the ways in which this condition can be prevented and treated.

1. Prevention: Not pushing your tongue between the teeth during the teeth growing stage can ensure that this condition does not occur. Children tend to rub their tongue along the jawline when the teeth are growing, whether it is the milk teeth or the permanent ones. This can cause a gap. Also, maintaining good oral health and hygiene can help in preventing this condition. One must brush at least twice a day and floss regularly too, in order to ensure that the gap between the two teeth does not widen.

2. Orthodontic Treatment: Braces are one of the most common ways of fixing this problem. The orthodontic surgeon will usually install these braces,  which will remain in the mouth of the patient for a year or more, depending on the severity of the condition. On a monthly basis, the braces will need to be tightened so that the jaw can facilitate the movement of the teeth to close the gap.

3. Tooth Extraction: In many cases, when the braces are installed, the doctor may also have to remove or extract teeth on the sides to make space for the teeth and their movement. This is usually done when there is a related ailment like overcrowding of the teeth.

4. Crowns and other Dental Installations: Crowns, veneers as well as bonding can help in cases where the lateral incisors may be smaller than what is normal. Also, dental implants or a bridge or even a partial denture may be required in cases where extensive dentistry will be called for.

5. Frenectomy: This surgery can help in closing the gap formed by a large labial frenum. 

6. Gum Health: In case there is an infection or any other problem in the gums due to implants or braces, the gum health will have to treated and restored first and then the implants or braces can be reinstalled.

One should also wear retainers for a while after the gap has closed so that it does not appear again.
