Nutritional deficiency, excessive stress & debilitating disease can cause ulcer. Exercise regularly. Have a balanced diet. Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. Increase dietary intake of vitamin B, folic acid, iron and use of vitamin supplements etc under medical supervision if blood tests confirm low concentrations

My teeth turned yellowish color. What to do?
Stains on teeth surface can be due to smoking, tobacco, gutka, alcohol and pan like products. Avoid taking these as they can cause serious problems like cancer. Bleaching will help you in this regard.

Hello, yellow teeth could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. You can also for bleaching or whitening for more white teeth. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit your dentist every 6 months.

I had completed my root canal treatment for my right molar tooth before 2 months. After root canal also it is paining sometimes. I didn't cap that tooth. Will it get set after capping?

Sometimes pain after root canal treatment occurs due to extent of infection or it can be due to some part of infected tissue left behind so in both the cases consult dentist and you should get capping done after getting relieved from pain as this is also required for long term prognosis of your teeth as well as save tooth from fracturing as tooth becomes brittle after root canal treatment.

Halitosis is due to systemic or local reasons. If you have constipation or acidity or diabetese or if you have gas trouble or if you have infected cavity or if you have pyorhea. Gum disease brushing is not sufficient get athorough checkup done for proper treatment.

Your tongue ulcer should be cured first as the ear pain is mainly a referred pain from the oropharynx.

I had root canal treatment almost 10 years ago due to an injury in 3 teeth. Now the teeth have started becoming darker in color. Is this expected after rct? I was not told of any such effects while undergoing the surgery.

BDS
Dentist, Noida
Usually after an r. C. T teeth start becoming gray in colour after a couple of years. Depending on the tooth position in the mouth, if crowning is done, then this problem will not come at all. I do not think that you have crowns over these teeth in question. Kindly get a proper check up done from a good dentist & get the needful done. Take care.

Mouth is not opening due to chewing of tobacco I left it from one month but its not coming to original stage hardly two fingers r going in please suggest any medicine so that it can come to original stage please doctors help me please.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Lybrate-user it is so nice that you have discontinued the habit of chewing tobacco. Do not pick up any other habit as a substitute as you would be harming yourself. Reduced mouth opening can be due to thickening of the skin inside the mouth due to continuous irritation from tobacco and beetle nut. You need to get a thorough examination done by your dentist at the earliest. In most cases, with the discontinuation of habit, you can see a positive change in mouth opening in about 6 months time. Your dentist may prescribe you multivitamin / antioxidant medicines which you need to consume for your body to reverse the damage. Also, maintain a healthy & balanced diet. ]

Use a soft toothbrush. See that you r not doing a very vigerous brusing. You can also go for cleaning and polishing of teeth from a qualified dentist every six months. Do visit your dentist.

The type of treatment you have for toothache /sensitivity/swelling will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. 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. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

I had my first sitting of root canal treatment on my wisdom tooth as it was not properly emerged and got infected. The removal was a small OT and I was hesitant of that. The first sitting was a bit painful at times. Can RCT be painful? The doctor told me that the abcess was deep and that caused pain.

Hi lybrate-user RCt is not painful as they put local anaesthesis and then you can not feel the pain. But when the sitting is done and the effect of anaesthesia is over then you can feel slight pain as the nerves are being operated so the dentist prescribes you painkillers for that time. So all in all no pain in the procedure. And do not take abscess or RCT lightly and should be done on time! Takecare.

Dental Implants - Understanding its Longevity

Dental Implants -  Understanding its Longevity

Ever wondered how good it would be if a tooth lost can be placed back in place? That is just what the dental implant does. Unlike the dentures, which replace only the crown portion of the tooth, the implant replaces the crown and the root portion of the tooth.

What’s more the chances of decay are less and there is no fear of mobility.  The dental implant replaces the natural tooth to the maximum extent possible, both in terms of chewing efficiency and stability of the tooth. It can take almost as much pressure as the natural tooth, with hardly any restrictions on diet.

When properly fabricated, the dental implant can last a lifetime. However, this longevity depends on two sets of factors.  The first is the overall oral health of the patient and the second is the post-implant care.

Oral health:  Before deciding that a person is to go for an implant, the following are considered:

  1. The person should have very good jaw bone support: The titanium post that will be used as the root portion is placed into the gum ridge and unless the jaw bone is extremely healthy, it will not be able to support this. Also, the post will be in left in place to get integrated into the bone for about 4 to 6 months.  During this phase, the oral health should be maintained extremely well.

  2. Placement: The implant should be done by someone qualified to do an implant, not just by any dentist. Good fabrication of the implant is very essential for its longevity.

  3. Good oral hygiene measures: This is a prerequisite for choosing, if a person is a candidate for a dental implant. If the oral hygiene habits are doubtful, then it would not be worth investing the time, effort, and money on an implant.

  4. Post-implant insertion care: Once the post is absorbed into the bone and the crown has been placed, meticulous care should be taken to ensure there is no plaque formation in and around the implant. The gums have to be maintained healthy through regular brushing, flossing, interdental brushing and frequent mouth rinses. This will ensure the gums are healthy and can support the implant for years to come.  Regular visits to the dentist every 6 months and scaling in the dental office are also mandatory when you have an implant.

The overall health of the person also ensures success of implants.  Chronic uncontrolled conditions like heart disease, stress, diabetes, and smoking adversely affect the oral health and therefore the success of an implant. These are also associated with a greater risk of gum and periodontal disease.  Managing these optimally also adds to longevity of dental implants. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dentist.

The milk teeth of every child need to be cleaned thoroughly. For this purpose they should use a toothbrush with a small round head and soft bristles.
