Do not use your teeth for doing something other than chewing food. Using them for cracking nuts, removing bottle tops or ripping open packaging can result in chipped or broken teeth.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.

I have pain at my right side upper jaw one black dot has formed in my jaw teeth. Please tell me what should i do?
Hi it appears to be a carious tooth. Any carious tooth which causes pain is most likely has deep caries. In most of the cases after making x ray, it is confirmed whether to go for simple filling or root canal treatment. So please visit a dentist near you and get one x ray done first and then go ahead with treatment. If you already have x ray with you, upload the image for better trestment plan.

Choose the Braces Which Suits You!

Choose the Braces Which Suits You!


Dental braces have become more common nowadays. In fact, nearly 4 million people in the United States are wearing braces at any one time, according to the Pennsylvania Dental Association. While dental braces used to be all metal, you will find many different types of braces today.

 

Discovering the Different Types of Braces

If you’re considering braces for yourself or your child, you have many options. Your orthodontist will help you make the best choice for your scenario, but here are the basics of each type.

  • Traditional metal braces are made of the stainless steel brackets and wires that inspired the term “metal mouth” years ago. Fortunately today’s metal braces are noticeably smaller. And new heat-activated arch wires move your teeth more quickly and less painfully as they respond to your body’s heat.
  • Ceramic braces mock metal braces in shape and size but they use tooth-colored or clear ceramic brackets that blend more naturally into your teeth. Some even use tooth-colored wires to keep your treatment even lower profile.

  • Lingual braces use the same metal brackets and wires used in traditional braces, but the brackets and wires are installed on the inside of your teeth to keep them hidden.

  • Invisalign consists of a series of customized, clear BPA-free plastic tray aligners that are removable and typically replaced every 2 weeks to keep your teeth moving in the desired direction.

Other braces may involve the use of nickel-titanium or copper-titanium for the wires and brackets. These metals may last longer and require fewer adjustments than stainless steel wires.

Most dental braces also involve the use of tiny rubber bands to help move your teeth. If you have any sensitivity to latex or certain metals, your orthodontist can help find a suitable alternative for you.

Assessing the Pros and Cons of the Different Types of Braces

So let’s take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of each type.

  Types

      Advantages    

  Disadvantages

Metal Braces

Least Expensive

Most effective

Allows kids expression

through colored bands

Most noticeable

Limit you from eating hard

and stick foods

Ceramic Braces

Less noticeable than

metal

Most effective, like metal

More costly than metal

May stain more easilty

Lingual Braces

Invisible from outside

Harder to clean

More costly than other types

May be more uncomfortable

Less effective for severe cases

than metal or ceramic braces

Invisalign

Nearly invisible

Allow you to eat and drink

anything (removable)

Only available for teens and adults

Less effective for severe cases

May be more costly than others

Treatment may take longer

Require brushing teeth after eating

to prevent staining

Treatments with both braces and Invisalign typically involve some use of retainers or mouth guards afterwards to maintain the new position of your teeth.

Kids should be evaluated for orthodontics by age 7, according to the Indian Orthodontic Society. By this age, your orthodontist can detect even subtle issues with jaw growth and emerging teeth.

While most kids begin treatment between ages 9 and 14, your orthodontist will help determine whether it’s best to wait or begin treatment right away. Many orthodontists recommend treatment while your child is still growing because it can take longer and be more intensive to treat teeth after they’ve stopped growing.

Lastly, kids who receive early orthodontic treatments (like appliances to correct cleft palates) may still need braces later. But the early treatment attempts to prevent further issues from developing while providing a healthier environment for the growth of permanent teeth.

Keep in mind that while some dentists perform orthodontics, an orthodontist specializes in treatments like braces and Invisalign, having 2 or 3 more years of education and training than is required for a dentist.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user. High diabetes have its own oral manifestation. Your oral ulcers may be one reason becase of uncontrolled diabetes. As far as the cut your talking about on your left cheek. I suggest you get a oral check-up done from a dentist near you asap. Its not a good idea to neglect any cuts or long standing mouth ulcers untreated.

The best option would be extracting the tooth. Please consult the dentist who would check clinically (may advice you x-ray) and give you the best treatment plan.

I chew tobacco and feeling bad in my mouth I can't eat spicy food what can I do ?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, first of all you have to quit this habit of tobacco chewing. It can have serious effects on your life. The longer you chew tobacco, the more damage you do to your body. Take tabacum 200 ch, 5 drops once in a week. Take kali cyna. 30 ch, 3 drops once daily in the morning. Revert after 15 days. Take care.

Plaque accumulation on the tooth surface is one the main reasons for halitosis(bad breath), deposits on the tongue can also elicit bad breath. It is advisable to brush twice a day , floss regularly and use a mouthwash. Also visit your dentist for an comprehensive oral treatment.

You get black spots only if the tooth gets decayed. Consult a dentist in person. Whitening can be done to treat your yellow teeth. You can apply SNOWDENT tooth paste. Apply it for 10-15 minutes. Overnight application is effective.

Dentist,
Taking a large number of medications often leads to a dry mouth. Increase your fluid intake or ask your dentist about an artifical saliva product or chew sugarless gum after a meal to keep your mouth moist.

At some times in the morning when I use to clean my tongue I am getting blood with split . I am very much worried about that .may I konw the reason and what could I do for that.

Diploma in Anesthesia, MBBS

If the blood is not when you cough or vomit or belch and it is seen only in the morning while cleaning the tongue, it is coming from the tongue, so clean the tongue smoothly and softly, you need not worry about it

Hello Lybrate user, visit your dentist as early as possible. For missing teeth ,you are required FPD/implants. For multiple cavities, restoration/RCT should be done, depends on your dental condition.
