Hello, yellow teeth could be because of deposits on teeth surface or food lodged in between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. Brush your teeth twice daily. Night brushing is very important. Floss regularly. Rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

It might be calculus/plaque/tar-tar. And if so is the case, it can not be cleaned by regular brushing. Go for professional teeth cleaning i. E. Scaling from a dentist.

She should go for teeth cleaning from dentist. . And after that maintain good oral hygiene. Brush twice a day with Fluoridated toothpaste. Do flossing also to remove the plaque in between teeth. . Her problem will be solved. .

Get your teeth cleaned professionally by scaling and polishing. If you are not satisfied with the results go for bleaching of teeth.

You can definitely go for replacement with implant and the cost varies from clinic to clinic. There are too many implant companies, go with what your dentist is comfortable with as at the end of the day it is him who has to do the procedure. Also I do not think so that ayurveda can replace your teeth.

There are minor gaps between my upper pair of teeth which doesn't looks good. Is there any solution for it?

There are minor gaps between my upper pair of teeth which doesn't looks good. Is there any solution for it?
Lybrate-user yes there is a treatment for gaps in teeth or spacing in teeth. Depending on the space innumerable solutions may be offered by dentists to you minimal corrections can be handled by laminates. Either composite or ceramic which is like having labial faced crown on your teeth wid minimal intervention or tooth cutting. These are not very time consuming process more so even better is an ortho treatment where the doctor may establish if it's a local or a skeletal defect and give you tooth movement appliances like in lay man term braces etc to bridge the space n correct your smile these are just two examples to give you an idea any treatment requires an assessment of your oral cavity in person all treatments vary in price n time kindly get in touch with a good orthodontist in your area who can help you out good luck.

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment
Dear friends, I’m Dr. Pankaj Dhawan. I’m a trained Prosthodontist and Implantologist. I’m practicing in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. Today, I’m going to teach you something about root canal treatment.
Our teeth are very precious to us, they are very important for us because we break our food with the help of our teeth. We would not be able to get nutrition from the teeth if we do not break the food in suto. That’s why the teeth play a very important role in mastication and breakage of the food to get the nutrition to the body.

Today, I’m going to tell you about root canal treatment and how to preserve the teeth. Over a period of time, because of constant use and not keeping proper hygiene, teeth do accumulate little bit of plaque and calculus around them. These are nothing but colonies of bacteria. These bacterial colonies secrete acid at night and this acid attack the calcified structure of the tooth. These cause decalcification of the teeth. This decalcification of the teeth causes the denaturing of the teeth and when this bacterial invasion goes little deeper into the teeth, we have dental cavities, we have dental caries. Dental caries is a microbial infestation of the teeth. When dental caries reaches the pulve or you may say in common words the nerve and the blood vessels of the teeth then, they cause immense pain and the pain of teeth is always unbearable.

Most of our patients in our country access dentist when they are having severe pain and extreme tenderness, therein, we have to do nothing but root canal treatment to save the teeth. Root canal treatment is a mummification of the teeth or in other words, trying to preserve the teeth without taking the juice out of the teeth. What we do is, we take the nerves and blood vessels out of the teeth, and put an inert material like Gutta Percha inside the teeth to preserve the teeth so that the teeth can function normally for rest of the time.

In metros, the root canal treatment can cost approximately 5000 Rs per teeth. In a root canal treatment the infected nerves and blood vessels are taken out with the help of rotary endodontics or hand endodontic instruments and then they are debrided, clean and all the materials which are inside are totally thoroughly clean and then, there are inert materials, used to seal the root canals of the tooth. After the sealing, the tooth is definitely needs to be capped. The capping of the teeth is important because tooth becomes brittle after root canal treatment and the cost of the cap in metro cities would be from 5000 Rs. to 15000 Rs. depending on the material used so, you may say a root canal treatment with the cap can cost you anytime between 10,000 to 15000 rupees for one teeth. It is always better to prevent the root canal by regular cleaning, visiting you dentist every six months and getting scaling and polishing done for the teeth.

For root canal treatment and crown therapy, if you need any further query, or if you need any further knowledge please feel free to contact me on the Lybrate platform.

The type of treatment you have for toothache 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 is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache 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 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 to find the cause of halitosis. .it can be because of not drinking enough water, more of spicy diet, acidity problem, chronic sinusitie, diabetes etc. Deposists on teeth, gum infection. First consult dentist to rule out any causes. At home make a routine to clean your tongue, rinse your mouth with non alcohol based mouth wash, drink water, keep yourself hydrated, swish your mouth after every feed.

if you have had a injury to your front tooth in childhood, and now it is becoming dark, it is suggestive of a damage to the pulp tissue of your tooth. You need to undergo a root canal treatment for that tooth. After the root canal treatment is done, you may be able to get the white colour of your tooth back with internal bleaching (if possible) or a crown on your tooth. Please visit your dentist as soon as possible and get a root canal treatment done.
