3 years back I did scaling of my teeth for the first time. 3 months back I did scaling again and within less time I have developed tartar buildup as 4of my front lower teeth are a little crowded but my jaw shape is good as suggested by the dentist. My question is, if I go for braces won't I get tartar buildup easily? Because I develop tartar frequently within less time? Please advise me.

Hello lybrate-user, I suggest you to go for ortho treatment (i. E braces as quoted by you) because as you mentioned you have got crowding which is one of the cause of tartar or calculus buildup and if you follow proper dental hygiene instructions you won't av to worry about the build up during and after the treatment. The braces will help you both asthetically and hygienically.

Hello Doctor, I'm taking treatment for my teeth to arrange them in order since 2015 October in Tirupati. My doctor said it is about to finish but I'm thinking to take treatment in Hyderabad itself. Is it possible? Will anyone do treatment for my teeth for the rest of time? If yes, How much it will cost? Looking forward to your reply. Thank you.

A complete radiograph opg or ct scan will help to plan the treatment options. If you are medically fit then best is dental implant for missing teeth otherwise dental bridge or partial denture can also be opted.

A Braces treatment is the best way to correct any misalignment of teeth. It gives a good functionality as well as helps gain confidence of a straight teeth smile. Since you have not mentioned age of your nephew I suggest you go into a good dental Practice with your nephew and get a consultation about orthodontic correction of teeth.

Bad breath is due to accumulation of plaque on teeth, decay teeth, dry mouth, smoking, tobacco chewing, consumption of caffeinated or aerated beverages, oilly n spicy food, sore throat, bad digestion. Go for scaling and polishing of teeth. Use mouthwash twice daily after brushing. Maintain proper oral hygiene. Increase your water intake.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

Probably you have to go for root canal of particular teeth. Untill you can use painkiller. Go for rct asap. After that go for capping.

Hi, you can go for ortho treatment (braces) or if the gaps are small you can go for cosmetic fillings or veneers. For details visit a dentist nearby.

An alternative way of flossing is using a toothpick to remove plaque from the mouth. But be careful and don't be too harsh.

You need to get scaling (cleaning) done so as to remove all the plaque and calculus, the gum bleeding, pus (if any) and bad breath would regress over a period of 10-15 days. Also do clean your tongue properly and use a good mouthwash as well. Please do not use mouthwash like listerine which contains alcohol as the base use a aqueous base mouthwash which does not desiccate the mouth.
