Oral Health Tip

Soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices should be consumed in a limited quantity because they are acidic in nature. Acidic food or drinks often soften the tooth material which leads to the dissolution of minerals into the tooth enamel, resulting in cavities (holes).

The braces treatment depends on the severity of malalignment. Moreover it also depends on the dental setup. As far as I know in our area colleges of charitable setup charge around 8-10 thousand and private institutes and clinics charges vary from 15 thousand to 40 thousand.

Lybrate-user my friend don't worry at all it is completely normal at your age. Kindly avoid hot and spicy beverages & gargle with warm saline water 4-5 times a day. Avoid eating very hard substances & pickles. It'll help. If the problem still persists after 3 days then kindly consult nearby dentist. Regards.

Is extraction of two wisdom teeth together on the same side of the mouth ?

Well, I am a specialist for your question and i frequently perform cases like you. There is absolutely no harm in getting it removed together. Rather i even remove all 4 wisdom teeth for my patients in the same appointment. Its little tiring for the patient but it helps a lot because u have to take all medications only once and go thru the ordeal of stitches, mouthwash, swelling, leave from office, soft food,etc, only once and not multiple no. of times.

Most probable cause is tooth infection. Painkillers will give only temporary relief. For permanent relief treatment of infected tooth is only option. You may need to undergo rct treatment. Visit dentist for further details.

A rct is treatment of the nerve of the tooth. If your cavity is deep to cause infection the root canal treatment will solve your problem. But this is if there is enough tooth structure left to save. Sometimes due to decay the tooth may be completely broken in which case it is better to remove it and make a denture etc. As replacement.

When I getup in morning that time my mouth smells so bad, but when I go to sleep I use toothbrush, colgate plux etc. Please help.

Brush your teeth twice a day (morning and before sleep in night) and clean your tongue by a tongue scrapper or the tooth brush itself get your teeth and gums cleaned by a qualified dentist you can also use chlohex plus mouthwash twice a day after brushing teeth.

The type of treatment you have for toothache will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. • If your toothache is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. • If your toothache is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. • If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. • If your toothache can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

For sensitivity use colgate pro sensitive tooth paste and apply with finger around the tooth and wash after five minutes. And also visit dental surgeon for proper checkup and further treatment required.

Dental Implants & Dental Crowns - Immediate Post-operative Care

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
When a tooth is lost, the dental implant or dental crown would be the closest replacement both in terms of chewing efficiency and facial appearance.

Unlike a denture, the implant replaces not just the crown structure but also the root portion. This ensures that the tooth is replaced as it was prior to the loss. When clinically done properly and cared for appropriately, the dental implant can last for decades.

Why Is a Dental Crown Needed?
A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:

To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left
To hold a dental bridge in place
To cover misshapened or severely discolored teeth
To make a cosmetic modification

And, if you have gone for dental implants, keep the following in-check to maintain a good oral health after you the implant is done-

Until the effect of the anesthetic wears off, do not eat or limit to drinking something cold. Avoid anything hot or spicy for the first day.
Start using the mouthwash from the evening of surgery and continue through the entire week. It should be held in the surgical area for at least a minute, repeated 3 times daily, for the first week.
The other teeth should be brushed from the evening of the surgery. The surgical area should not be touched for the first 3 to 4 days. After that, depending on the pain tolerance, gently brush this area with a soft toothbrush.
Add a teaspoon of salt to a glass of warm water, keep it in the surgical site for a soothing effect. This can be repeated as many times as possible, after each meal or snack.
Follow a soft diet and do not let the food go into the surgical site area.
Do not disturb the surgical site with either tongue or finger.
Smoking should be completely avoided until the wound completely heals. The negative pressure created during can dislodge the clot and lead to delayed healing and even complications like dry socket.
Expect some swelling and/or bruising in the cheek and mouth area, which will increase for the first 2 to 3 days and then gradually subside. Swelling can be managed with ice packs or a cold towel that is applied for 10 minutes with half-hour breaks. From day 2 onwards, gentle heat can be used.
Similarly, expect pain for the first couple of days which can be controlled with pain-killers. Take the first pain-killer before the anesthetic effect wears off.
Continued pain and swelling after the first 4 to 5 days should prompt a visit to the dentist, as it might be an indication of underlying dental infection.
If you have dentures over the surgical implant site, try using them to the least extent possible for the first week.
Complete the entire antibiotics course after the surgery.
Appropriate post-operative care goes a long way in ensure the implant gets absorbed and lasts a lifetime.
