This is a gum disease which advances with time and it comes to a stage when teeth become loose. As well. You have to get teeth cleaning done by dentist. And later he might advice you for a full mouth xray. To understand the level of the bone. And then accordingly some advance procedures may be advised to you. Usually if there is bleeding you can use a mouthwash for a month. Rinse two times daily. Or else if bleeding in gums does not subside. Kindly visit dentist.

Is flossing good for teeth? And does it create gaps in teeth? And are floss picks good?
Yess flossing is a very good habit & it shud b done by everyone everyday after everymeal. Your toothbrush is not able to clean the spaces in between the teeth that thoroughly, that's y you need to do flossing & yes it does not create any space between the teeth because its very very less in thickness, just like a thread, but yes using toothpicks or pins in between the teeth can definately increase the spaces in between your tooth.

In fixed prosthesis, we have options of dental implants in which we drill titanium screw into the bone let it fuse with the bone for 3-4 months and then fix artificial tooth over it. The other option is bridges in which support is taken from the adjoining teeth, their cutting is done and then bridge is cemented on to them like a cap. Definitely implant is expensive than bridges but after assessing the condition of your bone and health of the surrounding structures it can be suggested whats best for you. So consult the dentist and make up your mind for what you are comfortable with in every sense.

I am 29 years old male my problem gums and teeth weaknesses how to solve my problem ?
- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - have your dentures aligned as needed. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

This could be due to swelling in gums. Which sometimes causes spontaneous bleeding while chewing food. Get your teeth cleaning done by professional dentist.

Replacing the damaged, decayed tooth with an artificial one on an artificial tooth root is known as Dental Implant. In this procedure, the lost root is replaced by a compatible metal, on which a tooth crown is then built. In dental implants, sound tooth are not touched for support, unlike in root canal and extraction.

Mechanism of Dental Implant:

A strong, biocompatible material is used to make screws, which are inserted into the bone. Titanium is the most preferred material, and because of its unique property of osseo-integration (fuses with the bone), it fuses with the bone to reduce bone loss after the tooth is gone. In most cases, the titanium screws, which act as the root for the implants are placed into the bone and allowed for some weeks to few months to fuse with the bone. Then, an interim crown may be used until the screw is ready to take on an implant.

The screw is periodically monitored and once it is completely accepted, then an abutment is placed on it. This acts like a stump or a root, over which a crown will be placed. Though most implants are done for replacing single teeth, in many cases, multiple teeth may be replaced using abutments. If the missing teeth are adjacent to each other or in the same quadrant, then a denture might be overlaid over the abutments. Alternately, a partial denture may be used which is screwed over an abutment.

Advantages of Dental Implants

1. Eating becomes comparatively easier with implants rather than sliding dentures, because they function like your own teeth

2. Unlike removable dentures, implants are much more comforting as well as convenient

3. Better overall appearance of teeth, since they are made to fuse with the bone

4. Higher self-esteem as you will feel better about yourself

Success rate:

Generally, dental implants have a very impressive success rate (up to 98%). This can differ, however, based on the placement of the implants.

Take any pain killer, all works well in tooth ache. But this pain killer will subside your pain only. But you need to visit your dentist to remove cause of pain. If you have no other disease or allergy than you can take tab combiflam which will last for 6-8 hours.

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.
