Is there any solution to remove our teeth stain? Please suggest me.
Kindly get scaling and polishing done and if you want you can also get bleaching done. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

I am in boxing since 4 years and we usually get injured in the bouts. And recently 15 days back I had played a match and I got slightly pain in my jaw. I thought its normal and I didn't focus on it. As the time is passing the pain is increasing day by day I cannot open my mouth completely and I can feel pain while chewing. Please suggest me something because I have to play more matches in future.

Hai lybrate-user The boxers are at maximum risk of temporomandibular joint injuries. With your symptomps above I suspect a temporomandibular disc derangement. Consult oral and maxilofacial surgeon nearby in hyderabad only. He will throughtly examine with the necessary investigations come up with right dignosis for the treatment. Get well soon.

I am injured with pairia in my teeth on front. I try all kind of things but no good result shown on us! Wat can I do?

I am injured with pairia in my teeth on front.
I try all kind of things but no good result shown on us!
Wat can I do?
- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

You need to go for thorough investigation and diagnosis to decide the treatment. Pain can be due to some conditions like cavities, tooth abcess, gum disease, and fracture of tooth. Brush regularly two times daily with soft bristle toothbrush. Rinse your mouth after each meal.

All About Dental Implants

MDS
Dentist, Delhi
All About Dental Implants

Dental implants are generally identified as substitutes for tooth roots. Besides, replacing damaged or decayed teeth, implants also provide a strong foundation for both permanent as well as removable replacement teeth.

Advantages
There are loads of advantages of dental implants:

  1. Better overall appearance of teeth, since they are made to fuse with the bone
  2. Unlike removable dentures, implants are much more comforting as well as convenient
  3. Higher self-esteem as you will feel better about yourself
  4. Improved speech quality in the long run
  5. Eating becomes comparatively easier with implants rather than sliding dentures, because they function like your own teeth
  6. Improved oral health
  7. Good durability (can even last a lifetime if taken good care of)

Success rate
Generally, dental implants have a very impressive success rate (up to 98%). This can differ, however, based on the placement of the implants.

Who can go for dental implants?

  1. Patients must have healthy gums
  2. Must have sufficient bone strength to hold the implants in place
  3. Must be dedicated to maintaining good oral hygiene
  4. Must visit dentist regularly

Procedure
There are many steps involved in getting an implant:

  1. An individualized treatment plan, addressing all your specific needs and prepared by a team of professionals, well versed in oral surgery and restorative dentistry
  2. Placement of the tooth root implant into the bone socket of the missing tooth
  3. Attachment of a small connector post known as an abutment, which securely keeps the new tooth intact
  4. Attachment of a crown (the replacement tooth) to the abutment

The operation is normally administered under a local anesthesia. The whole process is not harmful at all, to say the least, and people have reported that a normal tooth extraction cause much more pain than a dental implant operation.

Hi, There could be two potential reasons behind these symptoms: First- you may have a decayed tooth which is damaged up till the nerves and causing pain, and the same pain is radiating to the ear and neck. Second- Your third molar may be in the erupting stage. It commonly erupts between 17 to 25 years of age and causes trouble to the patient until it has erupted fully. Depending upon the cause, the treatment line would be different. I suggest that you consult me privately on Lybrate for more specific answers and for an appropriate prescription. Take care.

If the tooth breaks, have the tooth contoured. Fill the crack in. Place a crown on your tooth. If the tooth has been badly damaged and the nerve or pulp is exposed, the dentist may have to perform a root canal to save the tooth. If the tooth has been severely damaged, it may have to be extracted.

Hi, I have bleeding in my lower jaws. Please advise.

Hi, I have bleeding in my lower jaws. Please advise.
Bleeding means there is plaque formation on teeth, so get a deep scaling done from a dental surgeon as medicines alone won't help.

Plz take a pain killer and then consult a dentist. Pain killer is only going to give you temporary relief. Dentist will find out the cause of the pain and help you to get rid of it.

Hi sir my teeth gums are pain and also blood come from gums when I brush my teeth.
It is due to your gum inflammation. The gum inflammation is due to presence of deposits hence you need scaling (cleaning)
