I have very pain on the teeth for last 6 months blood is coming. What should i do? please advise.
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical, gum strengthening whitening procedures or artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. You may consult me in person too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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.

The Role Of Implants In Dentistry!

BDS
Dentist, Delhi
The Role Of Implants In Dentistry!

A dental implant is a titanium post which mimics the root of the tooth and it’s surgically positioned into your jawbone beneath the gum line. After the implant is positioned, your dentist mounts replacement teeth or a bridge to replace a tooth or teeth that have fallen off, into that area.

Implants are a very useful new way to replace teeth that have been lost due to ageing, gum disease or trauma.

Benefits-
The options which were earlier available to replace missing teeth were an ordinary bridge which was attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth.

  1. A big advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be chipped or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth or teeth in place.
  2. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip. It gives you improved speech. 
  3. An implant also is better for maintaining dental health as it does not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
  4. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
  5. Implants also don’t come loose as dentures can.

Because implants fuse to the jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. This means dentures and bridges mounted to implants don’t slip or shift in your mouth. This helps you eat and speak normally.

This secure fit also makes the dentures and bridges mounted over implants feel more natural than bridges or dentures.

Some people can’t get ordinary bridges and dentures because of sore spots, poor ridges or gagging and for them, implants are a heaven send.

Should you get implants?

You can only get implants if you must have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. If your bone is too thin or soft you may have to get a bone graft first.

You should also be committed to keeping your implants healthy. For this, you should be committed to meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits as these will ensure the long-term success of your dental implants.

Types-

Two types of implants are considered safe by the American Dental Association. They are:

  1. Endosteal implants —These are surgically implanted directly into your jawbone. This is followed by a second surgery to connect a post to the original implant after the surrounding gum tissue has healed. And finally, an artificial tooth or teeth is attached to the post. This can be done individually or grouped on a bridge or denture.
  2. Subperiosteal implants — These consist of a metal frame that is fitted onto your jawbone. After the gums heal, the frame automatically becomes fixed to the jawbone. After these artificial teeth are mounted onto the posts, which are attached to the frame, and left to protrude through the gums just like with endosteal implants.
  3. Implants are very natural but they are expensive than other dentures or bridges, the other methods of teeth replacement. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Hello Lybrate User, Bad breath is also known as Halitosis, foul smelling odor that seems to come from the mouth cavity. Dry mouth, certain foods such as Onion and garlic because they contain smelly sulfur compounds., poor dental hygiene are few causes of bad breath. Self care technique can help to minimize bad breath, these techniques are as follows - * use oral care products, like mouthwashes and toothpastes. * proper oral care, brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day and use fluoride toothpaste. * stimulate your salivary flow - prevent dry mouth with chewing gum or mints. * eat fibrous fruits and vegetables. * Brush your teeth occasionally with baking soda. * stop smoking. * Drink plenty of water. * Take a dietary supplement - Vitamin C, D, E and B help to eliminate excess mucus and toxins naturally. * Avoid alcohol. i. Clean your tongue daily. Along with that take Homeopathic treatment, the natural homeopathic remedies for bad breath, which are completely safe and no side effects. Homeopathic remedies provide a permanent treatment for bad breath. For homeopathic treatment consult me on lybrate privately. Take care.

Habit of keeping betal nuts, chewable pan masala, gutkha is very irritating to oral mucosa. This irritation for a long duration changes the normal cells to cancerous cells.

One of my teeth has become rotten. I suffer from toothache once a week. Should I uproot the particular tooth or refill it with something.

If its not broken it can be treated with root canal or else you can get it removed and replace with an implant or crown and bridge.

Brushing two times doesnot stop cavitation in tooth totally. Rinse your mouth with water after food, try to avoid eating junk foods in daytime n before sleeping. Use mouth wash. There are many reasons for cavitation like food lodgement, oral hygiene practice, tooth n saliva composition, type of bacteria and their virulence capacity, hereditary and so on. Visit dentist every 6 months for dental check up.

Plaque tends to accumulate in the areas where the brush is unable to reach. Use of Waterjets can help in removing 99% of the plaque from your mouth.

The first checkup for your child should start as soon as he/she gets the first tooth. Remember it's parents responsibility to take care of their child's teeth to save them from necessary pain.Also don't not get your child's tooth extracted as it serves as a guide for the permanent teeth to come in proper position.
