Implants can be done in a day. U can start smiling with new set of crowns in another 2 days time. So all together 3 days. But need to see your xrays before treatment planning.

I have been having bad breath from the last month. What should I do?

Advanced Aesthetics, BDS
Dentist,
I have been having bad breath from the last month. What should I do?
Hi, there are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently. Regards

Thanks.
If the swelling is in the region being the last milk tooth then the gum swelling must be because the first permanent molars are erupting remedy-massage the area with ghee/honey if the swelling is related to some other teeth then please consult a pedodontist.

If your tooth paste does not contain flouride, there can be a risk of tooth decay and the tooth enamel may even start to wither away.

The Best and Worst Crunchy Foods for Your Teeth

BDS
Dentist, Delhi
The Best and Worst Crunchy Foods for Your Teeth

The mere thought of biting into something crunchy brings a refreshing thought. However, realize that crunchy things are not always good for general health and oral health. While some crunchy foods can be very good for the teeth, others can do a great deal of harm.

Given that crunchy foods are something more popular with kids, they should be taught the good and bad about crunchy foods. That does not mean they are banned from eating any bad crunchy food. There are ways to reduce the effects of eating a bad crunchy food and the children should be taught those early on.

Let us look at the bad crunchy foods first. A packet of chips or crackers may sound extremely exciting for the kid, but they are very damaging to the teeth. Pieces of these stick to the teeth and in-between the teeth, thereby attracting germs and causing decay.

Candies are the next lot. They contain a great amount of sugar that does not leave the mouth after the candy is swallowed. The sugar stays long after the candy is out of the mouth and continues to cause damage.

In both these cases, the child should not be told not to eat. The trick is to teach them that while they can eat these, it should immediately be followed by a brushing session or a thorough rinse if brushing is not possible. Get them into the habit of a thorough rinse after each meal and no crunchy food can produce the same damage.

Good Crunchy Foods: The vegetables and fruits are undoubtedly the best crunchy foods to bite into. Not only are they good for overall health with their rich fiber content and vitamins, they also have a great benefit for the oral health. Any fruit from apple to a pear induces salivary glands and increases the cleansing effect of the saliva. The natural fibers also produce the same effect as does brushing for a couple of minutes. The teeth surfaces are freed of plaque and bacteria, thereby reducing the chances of tooth decay. Carrots and celery also contain vitamin A, which is good for healthy tooth structure. They also are rich in water and provide good amount of water for the body. Another good crunchy food is popcorn, which not just is light on the stomach, but also has a good amount of fiber.

The next time you need something crunchy to bite on, take a decision. What you might munch into can have a lot of effect both on your overall health and your teeth. Also, watch your children and teach them how to nullify the bad effects.

For bleeding gums, go for scaling and polishing of teeth. For cavity, get your teeth x-rayed to determine the extent of decay. Depending on that, you can go for filling of cavities with tooth coloured cement with or without root canal treatment.

Kindly consult an oral & maxillofacial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray, tmj open & closed mouth) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Until then have soft diet. Replace posterior teeth if they are missing. Advise mouth opening exercise & side to side movement for the jaw muscles or the use of anti-inflammatory medicines and painkillers. For people who grind their teeth or clench their jaw, a bite-appliance may be made which corrects the way in which the jaw works and reduces the stresses and loads on it. This can be disposed of when normal function is restored. As oral & maxillo-facial surgeon, may be required to perform surgery on the tmj. You may consult me in person.

I have puss near my wisdom tooth. It was due to not brushing early, I guess. It was paining a lot. When I removed the puss I felt better. But there was puss again. What is it and is it serious?

First of all there is nothing serious to worry about. It may be because the wisdom teeth usually do not erupt normally like other teeth in most poeple. If it starts giving a problem then people go to a dentist and get the tooth removed and you will be okay. Like you said the improper brushing may have added to the problem and caused an infection. So the dentist will give you tablets to reduce the pus and then remove the tooth soon after, which is the most important part. Or he may assess the situation and remove the tooth immediately if required. But please do not delay much as the infection may spread to other areas in the mouth or do not just take some medcine without consultation as medication is never a permanent solution.

BDS (GOLD MEDALIST)
Dentist,
You have halitosis. You may have gum disease known as gingivitis with plaque deposition on teeth surface. Dry mouth abcess in tooth may also cause bad smell. Scaling will help you if there is plaque. You need to be diagnosed properly to decide the treatment you need.
