Using an appropriate tooth paste is very necessary for the health of our teeth. Tooth pastes which contain flouride help in keeping the teeth healthy by reducing the risk of tooth decay.

After RCT if pain still persists and there is swelling around tooth, then immediately consult your dentist for this. He will do an x-ray of that tooth and advice you for that. It may be possible that he will do re-RCT of that tooth.

Digital Smile Designing

When you think of what strikes you first about anybody, majority of people would say the smile. There is nothing more endearing than a warm, friendly smile. When you think more about it, the smile has a huge emotional component to it.  This is in addition to the esthetic and artistic value that a smile carries.  There are some people who are renowned for their smiles, which is said to be so bright, which led to the term '1000-watt smile', good enough to light up a big room!

Dentistry has evolved over the last few decades to play a major role in a person's appearance. From the shape and size of the teeth to the contour of the jaws and lips to the angle of the smile, there is something dentists can help with.  There are specific proportions that are believed to produce a perfect smile, width of the eyes, distance between the eyes, width of the mouth, etc. With more and people realizing that their smiles can be improved, the demand for these is also increasing.

The new development in improving smile is the Digital Smile Design (DSD) that was developed by a ceramician (technician involved in making ceramic crowns) in Brazil in 2007, Mr. Christian Coachman. This basically involves taking a series of digital photographs and videos of the patient. These are then transferred to the computer and analyzed for the various proportions mentioned above.  These images are then manipulated to achieve the correct proportions and reproduce a smile with the correct dimensions. To be doubly sure, these images are also shared with a larger group of dentists and then approval sought. 

Detailed discussions are held with the patient on how this will reflect once the change is done. Once changes suggested by the dentist are accepted by the patient and incorporated, then the patient's smile is reconstructed using the calculated analysis and post that the smile correction is done.  A successful digital smile design is a great example of teamwork as multidisciplinary teams from dentistry are involved.
The result is an enhanced smile that improves the patient's perception of beauty and also improves their confidence levels and feelings of self-worth and self-esteem. It is to be noted that what a person wants to express with his smile can be taken into account when designing a smile.

The major advantage of DSD is that there is no need for any special equipment and the digital equipment that is part of most dental setups is sufficient to design a smile. Smile designing is only poised to grow more popular in the coming years, with the greater focus on appearance and beauty.

My mouth smell is bad when awake up in morning or afternoon while moisture less on my mouth.
Please suggest me.
That's sounds like your mouth is getting dried up as you said moisture less. In summer there are chances of dryness, pls take more n more water as it requires. Further due to dryness bad breath occurs, I suggest you to brush your teeth properly in night as well before going to bed and also use'hiora' mouthwash 2times in a day. Further complete oral prophylaxis may be required by the dental professional.

I am having tongue ulcer for the past 12 years. I am taking only 1 tablet (stamlo T) a day for hypertension. Please give me permanent solution.

Dentist, Lucknow
Dear sir we have to see if the ulcer on tongue is due to any sharp edge of any tooth. Also after ruling out the cause the ulcer will go by itslef. Plus for faster recovery we can use low level laser therapy which will give you chairside relief from pain and help early healing of the ulcer.

If it is possible to save the tooth by root canal treatment, it is always wise to save it. The success of root canal treatment depends on the position of tooth, amount of tooth part broken, amount of infection, mobility and any bone loss associated with infection. Still it is good to save the tooth because none of artificial tooth would serve as good as natural tooth.

I am a 20 yr student. I am having mouth wounds since a week? What is the cure for this?

MDS - Periodontics
Dentist, Thane
I believe by mouth wounds you mean to say mouth ulcers. There are multiple reasons which can cause mouth ulcers. Most common is stress. Other reasons could be vit. B deficiency or other oral conditions. Mouth ulcers generally last for almost a week and after that they heal up. So if it is almost a week then wait for 2-3 days, if your ulcers dont heal then please show it to your nearby dentist. Also if you are having recurrent problem of mouth ulcers then its best to show it to dentist as soon as possible.
