    The last molar teeth in the mouth are called as wisdom teeth. While in some people they erupt completely into the mouth and function with no problem whatsoever, in others, they remain embedded in the bone, erupt incompletely, erupt at an angle, or are covered by bone or a flap of tissue. They are absent in many.
    Of late, dentists recommend removal of wisdom teeth, more a preventative than remedial measure. Some of the reasons for wisdom tooth removal are listed below-
    Impaction: Often, wisdom teeth do not have enough space to erupt in their normal position. This can only be evaluated properly on an x-ray. If the x-ray shows that the tooth is unlikely to erupt because of being blocked by a root or bone, this needs to be removed.
    Pericoronitis: The tooth partially erupts into the mouth but is covered by a flap of gum. This attracts food and bacteria to accumulate, leading to decay and infection, a condition called as pericoronitis. Very common in the lower wisdom teeth, it leads to severe tooth pain, painful swallowing and swelling of the lymph nodes. This is the most common cause for wisdom teeth to be removed. An x-ray will reveal the tooth to be infected and sometimes periapical abscess may also be present.
    Cysts: Impacted teeth can develop fluid-filled cysts which can cause severe and even permanent damage to the jaw bone, adjacent teeth and nerves. Dentigerous cysts are the most common type.
    Alignment: Misaligned wisdom teeth exert a constant mild pressure on the adjacent teeth which can hamper the alignment and reverse the effects produced by braces. The bite may be altered also, thereby necessitating removal.
    Adjacent Tooth Damage: If the malposed wisdom tooth is causing pocket formation or decay in the adjacent teeth, it is time to get them removed.
    Recurrent Sinus Infections: With their proximity to sinuses, there could be constant pain and pressure and infection of the sinuses. This is another indication for their removal.
    However, not all wisdom teeth need to be removed. If they have erupted fully, are healthy, produce a good bite, and can be cleaned easily, they do not require removal.
    During the teenage years and through 20s, check with your dentist on the health of the wisdom teeth. X-rays can be taken to monitor them and for early identification of problems. If they need to be removed, it is easier to take them out when you're young. The bone surrounding the impacted tooth is less dense, and therefore easier. The ability of the body in general and the jaw bones in particular to heal is also better at a younger age.

    Pregnancy may bring a glow to your face, but can affect your dental health quite adversely. Thus it is important to pay attention to your dental care routine and visit your dentist regularly for checkups. Most of the changes in your dental health are due to hormonal surges that occur during pregnancy.

    Pregnancy and plaque buildup
    Pregnancy can aggravate gum diseases like gingivitis. This is caused by the buildup of plaque on the teeth and is characterized by red, swollen and bleeding gums. Pregnancy gingivitis affects of majority of pregnant women. If left untreated, it can lead to a more serious condition known as periodontitis. The swelling of gums can also trigger the development of pregnancy tumours and non-cancerous growths. These tumours will usually subside on their own after delivery. However, if they interfere with eating or your dental care routine, your dentist may advise you to get it removed. A link has also been suggested between gingivitis and the delivery of premature babies by triggering the production of prostaglandins that induce an early delivery.

    What to keep in mind while visiting the dentist
    Regular dental checkups are as important as your gynecological checkups. Be open with your dentist and let him know the status of your pregnancy. Dental visits are recommended in the first, second and third trimester of pregnancy. At your visit, the dentist will assess the condition of your teeth and suggest an oral care routine. Getting your teeth regularly cleaned can prevent the buildup of plaque and lower your chances of suffering from gingivitis. Regular fillings and non emergency procedures can be performed during pregnancy. However, the best time to undergo any dental procedure if you are pregnant is between the 4th and 6th month. Avoid X-rays unless in cases of emergencies when pregnant. If you need to take any form of medication or need to put under anesthesia, consult your gynecologist about the procedure. Wherever possible, try and postpone dental treatment till after delivery.

    Brushing while pregnant
    Along with brushing your teeth regularly, it is also important to use the right toothpaste when pregnant. Choose fluoride toothpastes and mouthwashes for your daily routine. Rinsing your mouth with mouthwash can also help curb morning sickness and erase its distaste from your mouth. Flossing can also help keep your teeth healthy. Along with this, include plenty of vitamin C and B12 in your diet to prevent dental problems.

    Hi. Spaces between teeth is a common problem. There are various treatment but that depend upon the reason for the gap. Sometimes the gap is due to excessive protrusion of front teeth, or rotation. Many a times, the tooth size is small in relation to the jaw size, and hence the problem. Even cavities will give a tooth loss and hence feeling of gap. Sometimes some teeth are missing, either congenitely or they are impacted or extracted. This also causes gap. Please consult your dentist who will evaluate the reason for gap and provide appropriate treatment. Can range from orthodontic movement to veneers or simple fillings depending upon the reason. Hope this answers your question. Happy to help.

    Hi. Ceramic veneers are the porcelain half caps that cover only the front part of your teeth. They are placed if you have damaged enamel like pitting, staining or you have gaps in between or for other cosmetic reasons. This is more of a cosmetic makeover but remember, good looks enhance your confidence and smile. Changes your mental outlook. So in that point of view. Yes.a treatment. The procedure is not really painful if you have healthy teeth. Slight removal of front enamel ia required which in some cases cause sensitivity. But your dentist can easily overcome it by useof anesthesia or pre conditioning. Wishing you a healthy smile.

    Hi, If pain still present after doing the RCT, then there can be many reasons for it. 1. The pulp has not been properly removed and there are remnants of pulpal tissue inside which are causing pain. 2. There may be another canal which has not been explored. 3. There is acute abscess in the ends of root called periapical area. 4.There has been a broken instrument left in the canal which is causing pain. 5. Some perforation has been made accidentely. The management of these condition is not always medicine. Visit your treating dentist to evaluate the cause and take advise accordingly. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

    Hi, you have developed a cavity due to caries. The only solution is restoration. But what is the severity of the lesion can only be assessed by examination. If the cavity is small and the decay has not reached the pulp, then normal restoration/ filling can help. But if the cavity is deep enough to have affected the underlying pulp, then you will require a RCT followed by restoration and capping. Please visit your dentist as soon as possible.

    Hi. The gaps between teeth could be due to various reasons. 1. Missing teeth. Sometimes certain teeth like lateral incisors fail to initiate or teeth like canines fail to erupt. They are impacted within the jaw bone. So the space is created. 2. Small teeth. Sometimes, the teeth size is a mismatch to the jaw size. You can have a bigger jaw size but the size of teeth is genetically small. 3. Protruded teeth. There is protrusion of upper teeth. Since the teeth fan out, it gives an appearance of spaced dentition. 4. Mal alignment of teeth. The teeth in your arch can be crooked, rotated or otherwise not in proper alignment. 5. Dental caries. The tooth may have proximal caries which have created spaces. The choice of treatment to close the gaps depends upon one of these reasons. The gaps can be filled by. 1. Orthodontic treatment. 2. Cosmetic composite build up. 3. Veneering/laminates. And other methods specific to your problem. In general, small gaps can be covered by building up the teeth to make them broad so as to mask the gaps. Please visit your dentist for full evaluation of the reason for the gaps and take appropriate treatment.

    Dental implant is always a better choice for a missing teeth for multiple reasons. 1. They are a replacement for the lost tooth root. Hence more natural. 2. Since the tooth is not connected to adjacent tooth, the gum health is improved. The success of tooth in bridge is dependant on the adjacent teeth. 3. Since the forces are directed directly to the bone in implants, the bone loss is minimal. 4. The bridge is supported on an organic base. Your tooth which is still prone to caries and decay. The implant abutment is all metal. So you can be sure that the crown will not come out. So go for the implant in missing teeth and get crowns over the root canal treated teeth. Their prognosis is also good when extra burden of adjacent tooth is not put on them.

    Hello you mentioned that you have gaps in your teeth. If the gaps are due to cavities, get them filled. But if you have been suggested ortho treatment, then it is not necessary that teeth have to be removed. If space is already present, then I do not see the need for removal until unless opposing teeth are posing a problem for their alignment. Please see an orthodontist/dentist to get full evaluation done. If the teeth has to be removed, the space created will be adjusted and closed by moving the teeth backwards. The healing of the sockets, if taken care properly is uneventful and usually heals in 5-10 days.

    Hi the cause of mouth smell can be many. Mouth is the common passage for your lungs and digestion system. Also mouth smell is caused by bacteria or decaying tissues. If the cause is local like a dental cavity, gum diseases or calculus or some mouth ulcer, then a dentist can help you. Many times, mouth smell originates from underlying systemic diseases of throat, lungs or your digestive system. But you have to rule out local cause first. Please visit your dentist. He will be able to identify the cause and provide you a solution. Thanks.

    Hi the main aim of rct is to remove all pulp and fill the vacant space left in canals by root canal filling material and to seal the apex (the end of root canal). So even if there is a broken instrument in the canal, if the apex of that canal is sealed by bypassing the canal, there is no chance of pain or inflammation. But if the canal is left untreated because apex is not reachable due to blockage by broken file, then the vacant space left is a source of bacterial infection and can cause trouble in the future. The tooth has to be kept in observation. It may not lead to cancer but in some cases, open apex can lead to cyst formation. In that case, the root is sectioned and filling done from apex side to seal it. This procedure is called apicoectomy. Or last resort, tooth is removed.

    Gums bleed when they are highly inflammed by plaque and calculus (a hard deposit on the tooth). So even by slight probing/food impaction the bleeding occurs, please get they properly cleaned. This will take care of slightly yellow tooth also.

    Hello pyorrhoea is inflammation of gums and tooth attachment which is periodontal ligament and alveolar bone. This condition if not treated causes irreversible damage to the tooth attachment which causes bleeding and loose teeth. Please get her teeth properly cleaned by scaling and curettage from a dentist. He can suggest what is best only after proper examination. That is the only treatment. Rest all otc (over the counter) drugs are useless. They only provide symptomatic relief from pain and bleeding but the underlying condition deteriorates.

    Hello different problems have different solutions and rct is not the final solution for all dental problems but some. Rct is a procedure to remove dental pulp which bears the nerves and blood supply that provide vitality to the teeth. But with infection or trauma, this is compromised and many a times infection travels to underlying bone. By doing rct, the tooth canals are cleaned and filled with inert filling so as to remove all dead space where bacteria can multiply. Many a times, rct is an elective procedure wherein the tooth needs to be reduced for other prosthesis and reduction is deep enough to compromise it's vitality. However, if crown structure is lost beyond repair and the root and bone are not healthy enough, then rct is not advised. Please visit your dentist so that he can properly examine your condition and advise accordingly.

    Hi lybrate-user your teeth and gums are the part of your body. Just like any other organ, they need proper care and hygiene. Proper brushing and flossing is essential for the daily maintenance of your teeth and gums. Major cause of dental diseases is dental plaque. If your teeth are free of plaque, then gums diseases and cavities can be controlled easily. Also, proper brushing is the key. Many a times brushing too aggressively can damage your teeth. Proper dietary habits, eating balanced diets, avoiding too sticky and sugary food and if consumed, rinsing afterwards helps in maintaining the health. Avoid too acidic food. And lastly, since you cannot examine each and every corner of your mouth yourself, seeking a professional guidance is essential. Visit your dentist every 6 months at least if you are disease free and every 3 months if you have any corrected dental ailment. Hope this answers your general concerns. Keep smiling.
