Always rinse your tooth brush thoroughly after brushing, and allow it to air-dry before using it again.

There is a myth among many people that removal of the upper teeth affects vision. This is a total misconception.Vision is not affected in any way by undertaking treatment of the upper teeth including its extraction.

Our natural colour of teeth is pale yellow or yellowish white.So does it mean i dont need to go for further treatment for my teeths ?

BDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
Our teeth colour should match our skin colour so too white or too yellow r not needed. If u feel ur teeth are yellowish white than u need no whitening treatment but cleaning of ur teeth is must every 6 months coz that process will remove the calculus and tartar

Bad breath can happen due to dry mouth, infected or decayed tooth, digestion problem etc. Finding the cause of the problem is very important to suggest a treatment. I suggest you to brush along with tongue cleaning, it may help you. And also consult a dentist.

If hot or cold foods make you wince, you may have a common dental problem—sensitive teeth. Sensitivity in your teeth can happen for several reasons, including:

BDS
Dentist, Thane
Hello lybrate-user, sensitivity is sharp, shooting type of sensation in teeth on contact of extremely cold or hot food which usually lasts for a few seconds and disappears completely after that and re-occurs again on such stimulus. Treatment plan for sensitive teeth goes as follows: 1. You can use any commercially available desensitizing toothpastes such as colgate sensitive or sensodyne as first line of treatment. If it reduces your sensitivity substantially you can continue brushing with toothpaste in long run to avoid further sensitivity. 2. If you don't get any relief from desensitizing toothpastes it indicates a more severe problem which will need further treatment like layering/coating the damaged tooth surface or filling of the tooth if there is big cavity or root canal treatment in extreme cases getting proper treatment leads to permanent relief in sensitivity problem.

My child is 7 years old and she is having some problems in the gums and gets boil in gums every fortnight please suggest what to do.

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Chronic gingivitis is common in children. It usually causes gum tissue to swell, turn red and bleed easily. Gingivitis is both preventable and treatable with a regular routine of brushing, flossing and professional dental care. However, left untreated, it can eventually advance to more serious forms of periodontal disease. Establish good dental hygiene habits early. When your child is 12 months old, you can begin using toothpaste when brushing his or her teeth. When the gaps between your child's teeth close, it's important to start flossing. Serve as a good role model by practicing good dental hygiene habits yourself. Schedule regular dental visits for family checkups, periodontal evaluations and cleanings. Check your child's mouth for the signs of periodontal disease, including bleeding gums, swollen and bright red gums, gums that are receding away from the teeth and bad breath.

Hello doctor I'm 23 years old female I'm having left side molar with tooth caries and right side teethcracked. My dentist told have to remove the left side molar and then have to put cap on right side. How much cost have to spend for both? Pls reply me.

BDS
Dentist,
According to your conversation I think your left side tooth is grossly destructed n we can't save this tooth thatswhy your dentist told to get extration f this tooth. N in right side I think deep caries which can save the tooth by doing root canal treatment (r. C. T) n placing cap over this. It means your treatment 1 extraction (left side tooth)-500-800/ 2. Rct +capping (right side)- 1200to 2000+1200to 1800 n charge varies according to area, n dentist to dentist. I am giving you just gross estimate.

I am getting mouth ulcers very frequently so wil you please suggest to how to get rid of them?

BDS
Dentist, Bhavnagar
Hi. You have problem of mouth ulcer repeatedly that may be because of stressful lifestyle. Gastric problem may cause mouth ulcer. Drink more water. Avoid spicy foods. Avoid gaseous foods like cabbage, cauliflower etc. Avoid stress. If ulcer is long standing duration than you have to take biopsy for further diagnosis. Take care. Thank you.

I am facing problem of mouth ulcer. Which have become a hole in my mouth. What precautions do I take?

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take 'Becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief..

I had my wisdom root removed how to know if I have a infection what are the symptoms.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
As with any procedure, removing your wisdom teeth carries some risks. However, these risks are usually small. Risks can include: Dry socket – where a blood clot fails to develop in the tooth socket, or if the blood clot becomes dislodged nerve injury –this can cause temporary or permanent problems, such as pain and numbness infection – signs include a high temperature, yellow or white discharge from the extraction site, and persistent pain and swelling Bleeding You should see your dentist if you have signs of infection after the procedure, or if you're bleeding heavily from the extraction site.

My son Evan is 3 and 8 month old. Night time he is suffering tooth pain from one month. I consulted one Doctor she told the vein death happened and infection is there the only possible way is root canal. Any other solution? We are not preferring root canal and plucking pls give a suggestion.

Dentist, Kolar
Your son is suffering from extensive tooth decay n requires rct or removal of that tooth not just for stability n space maintaince for permanent tooth but also to prevent spread of infection from dead nerve to the growing permanent tooth below it. Medicines cannot heal the extensive damage n he needs rct for saving that tooth n preventing other dental probs in future. Worry not n go ahead with the rct. Regards.

I have a problem in my teeth whenever I drink cold water then I have suddenly pen in my my teeth so tell me that what I do?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

What is the treatment of the toothache and cavities? Which kind of toothpaste best for anti cavities?

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Tooth ache can be due to cavity or gum issues. If itis a cavity then you need to get a root canal treatment done followed by a crown. Smaller not deep cavity can be cure with fillings. To prevent cavity use fluoride rich tooth paste.

Hello everyone.
As you all know that most of the dental problems are due to sugary food or food lodgement in inter space of two adjacent teeth.
Reason is that our toothbrush bristles are unable to reach between interspaces of two tooth.
Now a days we dentists recommend dental floss to clean the interspaces of teeth and helps in maintaining tooth intergrity and the chances of tooth decay get reduced to much extend
Sometimes there may be sensitivity in teeth it's just because of worn or grinding of enamel of tooth whose treatment depends on severity of worn off of that layer. It may require cap or may require root canal then cap.
So to take care of your teeth for long period always visit to your dentist in every 6 months and ask for the better care of your smile on your face.
