Unfortunately implants will cost you that much, but you can go for fixed denture instead of implant which will be much cheaper.

Cavities and braces are two different identities. To correct your malaigned teeth you need braces, whereas foe restriction of tooth decay you need to fill your decasyed teeth. Extraction of premolars for orthodsontic braces is quite a natural phenomenon. Discuss with your dentist for further evaluation.

see sensitivity can be because of attrition or because of cavity. If there is a cavity then you need to see a dentist but if it is because of attrition just try this thing. Apply your tooth paste on the sensitive teeth for like 1/2 minute and then brush. even after this the problem persist do see your dentist.

Hi, there are various reasons of bad breath (halitosis), like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently. You can come for a consultation (free of cost) in our clinic.

Considering the age of your daughter the black colour on the teeth could be nursing bottle caries which is frequent in toddlers. It happens wen the child takes prolonged feeds at night or sleeps while feeding which causes retaining of some milk in mouth leading to decay of back surface of teeth. It is advised to wipe clean the teeth with moist cloth after each feed to prevent decay. Visit a pedodontist for further evaluation n treatment. Take care.

Sugary foods should be consumed in limited quantities as the bacteria in dental plaque changes them into acids.

Wisdom teeth come between the age of 18 to 25 yrs. Because of the pain, you could not have proper diet which might have caused a nutritional deficiency leading to oral ulcers. Have a good balanced diet specially green veggies and fruits and maintain a good oral hygiene. Keep smiling.

This is due to indigestion. Drink lot of water. Do warm saline gargle with chlorhexidine mouthwash. And also consult a dentist for scaling.

Flossing is as important as brushing on a daily basis. Taking the floss all the way down to the point where the teeth and gums meet is the appropriate way of doing it.

Hello lybrate-user, see there is just a myth that teeth becomes pearly white, teeth are never very white, the natural colour of teeth is little yellowish but yes if they are very yellow it cud be due to deposits on the teeth also, so kindly visit a nearby dentist and get cleaning done.

Now, how long will it take for my gum to get its grip back or grow back to the teeth and I can feel that a lot of the teeth is out my gums. How long will now, gingivitis take to heal. I am doing mouthwash with Hexidine twice daily.

If you feel/can see that your teeth is out, then you might be suffering from one stage advance that is pyorrhea. After scaling you can see pinkish gums in 2-3 days only but total healing takes little time. And you night have bullous pemphigoid affecting your gums. For that you need to consult your doctor for local application.

What Are Dental Implants

People loose lose their teeth for various reasons ranging from gum diseases, bone loss conditions, dental cavities, injuries and age. A missing tooth, particularly at the front of your mouth, can lead to changes in your smile and loss of confidence. Apart from aesthetic reasons, a missing tooth also impacts the way you talk, and eat your food. Over time, the bone mass which was supporting the tooth starts eroding and causes the loosening of your neighboring teeth. To prevent this and regain the confidence of a beautiful smile, most people, as well as doctors, prefer dental implants.

Why are dental implants the preferred option?

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth since they are the closest thing to getting back your original pearly whites. Most patients prefer implants to other tooth replacement options like dentures and dental bridges since they offer the maximum stability and durability. Patients maintaining their dental implants properly can expect them to last around 25-30 years and even more. Besides looking like real teeth, they also function like your natural ones. That alone is the reason why so many people consider them.

Now let's understand what are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium metal posts which are used to replace the roots of a missing tooth and support a custom made crown. They are placed in your jawbone through a minor surgical procedure that is done under local anesthesia at your doctor's chamber. To replace your missing tooth with an implant, the dentist will attach a crown that takes the place of your visible tooth. After your implant has fused with your jaw bone and healed, the crown will be changed to a permanent one that matches the colour of your teeth flawlessly. This process can be used to replace a single tooth or a number of teeth. Unlike bridges and dentures, crowns which are fitted to these implants do not shift or slip. The secure fit gives a more natural look. It also gives comfort while speaking and chewing food.

Is a dental implant very painful?

A dental implant is as painful as any other procedure done by your dentist, for eg a filling. Done under local anesthesia, an implant does not leave any open wound so the healing process is quicker. Minor discomfort after the placement of the implants can be relieved through normal painkillers like ibuprofen. Depending on which part of the mouth you have lost your tooth, your dental implant procedure should take less than an hour to complete.

Healthy gums for implants

If one is considering going for an implant, then you must know that implants need healthy gums with enough bone support. Oral hygiene is of utmost importance and regular dental visits should be made so as to ensure long term success of the implants.

Care of the implants:

Usually dental implants are very successful and here are few steps to help you take care of them to get long term benefits:

Good oral hygiene: brush twice a day and make flossing a routine. Use of interdental brushes
Can help clean the areas around the implant.
Abstain from smoking as it can make your bones weak and result in implant failure.
Avoid putting too much pressure on the implants: eating food items like gums and candies can
Break the crown of both artificial and natural teeth.
Visit your dentist every six months.
