Hello Lybrate user, it is important to know if the wisdom tooth is in a favorable position to erupt or not. For this a radio-graph/x-ray is required. Depending on the position of the tooth, either the gum tissue surrounding the erupting tooth need to be removed /operculectomy or the tooth itself might need to be surgically extracted/removed. The cost for both the treatment option is different and variable. To know the exact details it is advisable to visit a Dentist at the earliest. Get well soon.

Perhaps because of age--I am being in my seventies--some of the teeth has got partly broken as a result of which food particles get stuck up. It is becoming a habit with me to use toothpick. My dentist says horizontal filling is not possible. My general physician is not in favour of extraction because of age related health problems. I need to have suggestions for this so that pain or other problems can be avoided. Is their any harm in using wooden toothpick. I do not use any form of tobacco but occasionally drink moderately.

Hello sir sorry to hear that ure suffering with food impaction and you have to use tooth pick to remove the food. Yes sir ure dentist is right by saying tooth picks are harmful for your gums. I wud suggest you to use floss provided your hands are having the dexterity to do flossing. Teeth can be fixed at any age immaterial of the medical status but with caution. Tooth also can be extracted with proper update on the medical history and at times in a hospital environment. I hope I answered your question sir god bless and good luck

I want to get my front upper teeth shortened. May I know how much would it cost to me and does that make my mouth shape go round or get changed?

After treatment there will be no such changes and if any changes happened that will be in aesthetic favor. A picture of your front tooth region will clarify what exactly you want like braces or just trimming of upper front tooth. As you mentioned teeth shortening, that means you feel your upper front teeth are larger than others, in that case, if trimming is only 1-2 mms, it can be done easily without paying much. But if we have to reduce more, that may require capping with or without intentional RCT. Cost will be according to treatment and other related procedures. I. Case of braces, time duration and cost not will be increased. So please clarify what exactly is your need. THANK YOU.

Pain after Root Canal

BDS, Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research
Dentist, Kolkata
Pain after Root Canal
Some patients even after proper root canal may feel a bit of pain during chewing and get confused with the prognosis of rct or question the expertise of the doctor. In reality it is due to the inflammation persisting in the periapical tissues and alveolar bone. Give it some time it gradually gets healed up. Sometimes it might take even a couple of months but with proper antibiotic coverage and oral hygiene maintenance it does get cured.

What is teething? your baby is teething when his or her first set of teeth, called primary teeth camera. Gif, break through the gums. When does teething typically start? teething usually begins around 6 months of age. But it is normal for teething to start at any time between 3 months and 12 months of age. By the time your child is about 3 years old, he or she will have all 20 primary teeth. The lower front teeth usually come in first. Upper front teeth usually come in 1 to 2 months after the lower front teeth. See a picture that shows when the primary teeth come in camera. Gif. What are the symptoms? some babies are fussier than usual when they are teething. This may be because of soreness and swelling in the gums before a tooth comes through. These symptoms usually begin about 3 to 5 days before the tooth shows, and they disappear as soon as the tooth breaks the skin. Many babies don't seem to be affected by teething. Babies may bite on their fingers or toys to help relieve the pressure in their gums. They may also refuse to eat and drink because their mouths hurt. Many babies drool during teething, which can cause a rash on the chin, face, or chest. Mild symptoms that get better usually are nothing to worry about. Call your doctor if your baby's symptoms are severe or don't get better. How can you help your baby be more comfortable while teething? here are some tips to help your baby feel better while teething: use a clean finger (or cold teething ring) to gently rub your baby's gum for about 2 minutes at a time. Many babies find this soothing, although they may protest at first. Provide safe objects for your baby to chew on, such as teething rings. If needed, give your baby an over-the-counter pain reliever that is labeled for his or her specific age. Read and follow all instructions. Do not give aspirin to anyone younger than 20, because it has been linked to reye syndrome, a rare but serious disease. Many parents use other teething remedies, such as gels you put on a baby's gums. Many experts question if these work and are safe. If you want to try these products, talk to your doctor about which types are safe and how often to use them.

Advise deep cleaning, polishing, whitening (bleaching) procedures, artificial enamel filling or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics.

Hello, swollen gums could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. Visit a dentist get your deep scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

Stop grinding your teeth to minimize your chance of lockjaw from TMJ. Eat soft food. When your jaw muscles are tight and painful, you want to give them a rest instead of making them work hard. Eat soft foods like soup, eggs, fish, cottage cheese, smoothies, and cooked vegetables.
