Start brushing twice daily with either colgate pro sensitive or sensodyne toothpaste using soft bristle brush. The result will be felt within a month. Still get your teeth x-rayed to rule out any decay.

I have scaling over lower teeth and gum recession. What should I do ?

First - these deposits or scales to be removed by dentist. Gingival/gum recession correction is possible to some extent by gingival surgeries. By maintaining oral hygiene you can prevent further recession.

Gum diseases should be treated by periodontists, who specialize in treating dental gum diseases. Since they exclusively deal with this field, they offer treatments which other dentists generally do not refer to.

My tooth broken half inside of the mouth. What should I do?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist,
My tooth broken half inside of the mouth. What should I do?
We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment with a cap. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Dentist,
I am 30 years old man and having mouth smell. So what to do?
Mouth smells or halitosis happen due to some conditions like dry mouth, cavities, gum disease, food impaction between teeth, plaque or tartar deposition. Or may be because of some infections like sinusitis and lung infection. Its important to find out the cause of halitosis to decide the treatment. Rinse your mouth with alcohol free mouthwash. Brush regularly two times daily. Floss your tooth. Get scaling done if there is plaque deposition.

Badly gum decay problem. What medicine I should take to recover my gums problem? Please ans.

Badly gum decay problem. What medicine I should take to recover my gums problem? Please ans.
Sir, decay happens in teeth. With gums, they can get inflamed, i.e. Swelling, bleeding will be there and in severe cases the gums will recede and expose the tooth. SO please visit a dentist, clean your teeth, as the most common cause of gum problem is accumulation of food particles over a long period between the teeth and gums. After that depending on the severity of your condition, your dentist will give you medication, or other treatment procedures for making your gums healthy.

It is not good to write drugs without seeing a patient. But you can give syp paracetamol 15 mg/kg per dose 6/4 hourly. It will reduce her bodyache and fever if it is. Will reduce her crankyness.

Why Dental Implants Work So Well

MS Restorative, Certificate SMR, BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Why Dental Implants Work So Well

Tooth lost to either decay or gum disease leaves a dent in many areas - facial appearance, chewing, facial structure support, etc.  Fixed dentures were a good substitute, however, with one major disadvantage.  They required removal of natural tooth structure from adjacent healthy teeth.  The next big search was to find ways to avoid this, and the result is the dental implant.

The tooth has a visible part called the crown and an invisible part called the root which is hidden in the jaw bone.  While the fixed denture replaces only the crown, the implant replaces both the crown and the root.

How implants are done: Once a tooth is lost and the bone is healed to the desired extent, a biocompatible titanium post that is screwed into the bone. This material has the unique property of osseointegration - it fuses to the bone, which is almost like a natural tooth in its socket.  This complete fusion may take about 2 to 6 months depending on overall health. After it gets absorbed well into the bone, a crown that matches the adjacent teeth is fixed on it.  Implants can also be used for replacing multiple teeth or for overdentures.

There are certain reasons why implants work so well, listed below are some:

  • The material: Titanium is biocompatible and does not cause any adverse reaction in the body.  It fuses to the bone completely and is not just put in place to fill the gap. That ensures that the support provided for the new crown or bridge is as good as the original tooth with a root embedded in the jaw bone
  • Post-implant care:  Required, but not to the extent required by dentures.  There is very minimal difference between caring for an implant and caring for an implant
  • Function: As the implant is completely fused and embedded in the bone, it functions as good as a natural tooth in terms of chewing efficiency and pressure that can be applied on it. This is not the case with dentures
  • Gum health: Bridges have an adverse effect on the gums with a constant mild pressure exerted on them.  Implants do not do that and therefore are more friendly on the gums
  • Bone health: While bridges affect the alveolar bone health by allowing them to continue to degenerate, implants occupy the space in the bone and do not allow further degeneration. This is probably the most important advantage of implants.
  • Aesthetics: Needless to say, the look of a well-done implant far surpasses that of the dentures.

Check with your dentist if you are an ideal candidate for implant, and if yes, it surely is worth the investment.

See a dentist immediately. He may prescribe you the painkillers and antibiotics in required. Check for the cause of pain and treat accordingly. It might go for root canal or may be extraction if the tooth is beyond reparable condition.

Do you think that a fallen tooth is always a waste? That's not true. Saving a fallen tooth can be useful.  Try to keep it in place while you seek immediate medical attention. If that is not the case, try wrapping the tooth in a piece of plastic or soaking it into milk and call for immediate dental service.

Lybrate-user, if your teeth a badly decayed, as they have been diagnosed by your dentist, the only avenue available to you for saving the teeth would be getting root canal treatment done at the earliest or else you will end up losing those teeth at this young age. If money is a genuine problem, you can discuss it with your dentist who may be able to guide you to some charitable / government hospital for the same.
