Problem of teeth cavity and problem of gums swelling and pyrrhoea of teeth cavity in human being.

Certified Implantologist, MDS Prosthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Problem of teeth cavity and problem of gums swelling and pyrrhoea of teeth cavity in human being.
Dear lybrate-user, cavity in the tooth needs to be treated appropriately depending upon the extent of the decay. You may visit a qualified dentist and get a detailed examination of the problem to seek an appropriate treatment, also the symptoms which you have described relate to gum disease in which there are calculus, tartar, plaque deposits on the teeth and the gums become weak and swollen. There is also bleeding from the gums and foul smell from the mouth. The teeth become loose this maybe what is commonly known as pyorrhoea. You need to consult a qualified dentist and get your teeth cleaned and the gums treated.

My daughter aged 11 needs braces. I hear there is a new type of braces which does not show and is more comfortable. Is it available and if yes how much does it cost.

BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Hello mam, braces are available in a great variety these days and are having different advantages over each other. Tooth colored braces can be used with tooth colored wires which do not show much, aligners are a system where no braces are fixed to the teeth only transparent covers are worn by the patient, prices are variable.

How to Brush Your Teeth

PGDRH, BDS
Dentist, Jaipur
How to Brush Your Teeth
1
Use a good toothbrush. Choose a toothbrush with soft nylon bristles. This must effectively remove plaque and debris from your teeth, without irritating the gums or eroding tooth enamel like hard bristled brushes can do when used with sideways action. The toothbrush should also fit comfortably in your hand, and have a head small enough to easily reach all of your teeth, especially the ones at the back. If you have difficulty fitting the toothbrush into your mouth, it is probably too big.[3]
Electric toothbrushes are a great choice if you are a lazy brusher and think that the electric toothbrush might encourage you to spend more time on your teeth. However, you can do just as good of a job with a manual toothbrush -- it's all in the technique.
You should definitely avoid toothbrushes with" natural" bristles made from animal hair as these can harbor bacteria.

2
Replace your toothbrush regularly. The bristles will wear out over time, losing their flexibility and effectiveness. You should get a new one every 3 to 4 months, or as soon as the bristles start to splay out and lose their shape. Visual inspection of the toothbrush is more important than the actual timeline. You can also buy toothbrushes nowadays whose handles will change color when its time to get a new one.
Research has found that thousands of microbes call toothbrush bristles and handles" home" and can cause infections.
Always rinse your brush after using it, and store it upright and uncovered so that it can dry before your next use. Otherwise bacteria will grow.
3
Use a fluoride toothpaste. It not only helps remove plaque, it also helps strengthen tooth enamel.[6] however, it's important to note that fluoride toothpaste is not to be swallowed, as ingesting too much can have serious health consequences. It should not be used for children under the age of 3.
You can get toothpastes to target a wide variety of dental and gum problems, including cavities, tartar, sensitive teeth and gums, gingivitis and stained teeth. Opt for the one that suits your best or ask your dentist or hygienist for advice.
4
Use dental floss. Flossing your teeth is just as important as brushing, as it removes built up plaque, bacteria and food particles that get trapped between the teeth and which soft floppy toothbrush bristles can't reach even when used with up/down natural motion. You should always floss before brushing your teeth so that any food or bacteria that comes loose during flossing doesn't remain in your mouth.
Remember to floss gently. Don't" snap" the floss between the teeth as this can irritate sensitive gums. Ease it down gently, following the curve of each tooth.
If you find dental floss awkward to use or you have braces, look for dental picks instead. These are small wooden or plastic sticks which you can insert between teeth, achieving the same results as flossing if spaces are large enough.

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.

There are many resons which lead to bleeding from mouth. It may be due to swelling of gums. It can be treated by maintaining proper oral hygiene ie. Brushing twice a day using toothbrush with soft bristles, regular use of mouthwash and professional dental cleaning like scaling every 6 mnths.

I am 22 years old. I am having teeth pain and some teeth are yellow in colour inner side of the teeth. How can overcome this.

BDS, MDS
Dentist, Secunderabad
Tooth pain could be due to various reasons, the most common being dental caries that forms a cavity within the tooth exposing the underlying nerve. Treating the tooth is the best option for which you need to consult a dentist and emergency treatment includes to run a course of antibiotics and pain killers. But not all pain killers work on tooth pain so please avoid self medication. You can consult me for this.

flourosis / mottling is common due to the stains becoming intrinsic... you could opt for composite or ceramic veneers if cleaning and bleaching does not help get desired result

Some bad smell is coming from mouth and some time blood also. Please suggest me what need to be done.

MBA (Healthcare), BDS
Dentist, Chennai
Bad odour or smell is due to the plaque and calculus present in the teeth near the gums, hence you need for full mouth teeth cleaning i.e scaling. Bleeding is due to the gum inflammation beacuse of the presence of calculus /tartar present. Once scaling done the problem will get solved for you Thank you.

Irregularly positioned teeth or crowding of teeth as it is called, can cause difficulty in properly brushing the teeth and maintaining oral hygiene as the brush is unable to reach through. You need an orthodontic correction of the crowded teeth or braces as it is more commonly known, after which it will be easier for you to clean your teeth.

What can be the best toothpaste and toothbrush should be used to cure gum problems.

BDS
Dentist, Raipur
What can be the best toothpaste and toothbrush should be used to cure gum problems.
Kindly get scaling done and use gum paint twice daily for 15 days. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene. Please use any toothpaste having fluoride content but correct brushing technique is more important than the toothpaste and toothbrush.

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.

Dentist, Jodhpur
The best way to treat bad breath (halitosis) is to instill patients with good oral hygiene practices.The common methods used include tongue brushing, tongue scraping, and chewing gum. Gentle but effective deep tongue cleaning should be an important daily routine. Other methods to reduce halitosis (bad breath) include -
Gargling right before bedtime with an effective mouthwash
Cleaning the tongue surface twice daily
Eating a healthy breakfast with rough foods helps clean the very back of the tongue
Chewing gum
Flossing is particularly important in removing rotting
Periodic visits to DENTIST

I am told that I am having leukoplakia under the right hand side of my tongue and for the last 2 years 6 months and ulcer is observed near the white patch which has increased a little. I am a smoker. So I like to know that is it cancer and will it be cured automatically if I can quit smoking?

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
A biopsy report is required to confirm the diagnosis. Leukoplakia is a precancerous condition. It won't be cured just by quitting. You will require medication to treat it. And surgery to remove it. It's better to quit smoking as it has a direct effect on the healing. You continue with smoking you will get cancer or your present case will worsen.
