BHMS, M.D.
Homeopath, Pune
hello lybrate user, gum bleeding could be due to vitamin deficiency, or use of hard brush, etc; have healthy diet, add more fruits in diet, avoid certain food which aggravates headache. avoid stress. take homeopathic for headache and gum bleeding. it is safe,natural and holistic way of treatment. homeopathic medicines like Natrum, spige etc are highly effective in headache complaints. chronic type of headache needs constitutional treatment where medicine is selected on the basis of thorough details like medical history, routine, causes, temperament etc; such well selected remedy gives complete relief and cure without side effects. you can consult to me online. message back for proper homeopathic consultation. take care.

Going For Braces - Choices To Consider!

Going For Braces - Choices To Consider!

A generation ago, we would not see so many adolescents with braces as we do currently. Orthodontics, the branch of dentistry involved in the use of braces to align and move teeth to form that perfect arch, has seen rapid advancements in the past few decades and continues to grow at a rapid pace.

The fundamental principle is that teeth are held in place by surrounding elastic tissues, and minor constant forces can be applied to align them better. Small metal brackets are applied on the teeth and a wire is passed through them so that there is a constant force on the teeth. The amount and direction of force is managed by the doctor. The younger the age, the more elastic the tissue is, the easier it is to move teeth.
There are two main things to understand in terms of your options - relation of age with orthodontic treatment and the choices of braces.
Firstly, it has a correlation with age. Over the years, more people in their 20s and early 30s are choosing to have braces. Though the teeth and more importantly the surrounding periodontium become less elastic with age, the amount of force exerted is increased and therefore tooth movement is enabled. Also, in older patients, tooth removal may be required more frequently to make space for proper alignment.

Second is the choice of braces.

  1. In the earlier days, bands were placed around the teeth and a wire was then used to connect all these bands to enable tooth movement. Gradually, this made way to small brackets being placed on the front surface of the teeth, and a wire running through it and elastic bands connecting the bracket and the wire. This is the most effective way of moving teeth, though not aesthetic. To make it look different, the ligatures could be colored.
  2. For people who are constantly in the public eye, the metal braces were a deterrent and so lingual braces became popular. The brackets are applied on the inner surface of the teeth and are not seen easily. The amount of force here varies from the earlier one, and not all conditions can be treated by this method.
  3. The next development was the development of ceramic braces, which are also applied to the front surface of the teeth and can be used in most cases. These are more expensive than the metallic braces.
  4. Removable aligners is another option, which are trays which need to be worn for close to 18 hours a day to induce tooth movement. They are aesthetically okay and no metal shows during talking or smiling.

So, if you want to improve your smile, consult a dentist and find out how!

I have 28 teeth and my age is nearly 20 and after my last teeth in my right side of jaw my gum is swelling also a little bit in left side of jaw also. What might be the problem. Is it due to wisdom teeth? It doesn't pain but sometimes very slight?

MDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Yes its called as pericoronotis which is inflammation of gums surrounding wisdom tooth. If the tooth is coming out in proper direction then nothing to worry. But if is embedded in bone partly and errupting in wrong direction it might trouble in future. Right now you can visit your dentist get x ray done. He will cut extra gums so tht there will not be food retention and swelling in guns. Rinse twice with lukewarm water with salt in it.

Tooth Pain Home Remedy in Hindi - दांत दर्द के घरेलू नुस्खे

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition

Tooth Pain Home Remedy in Hindi - दांत दर्द के घरेलू नुस्खे

दांत दर्द की वजह कोई भी हो लेकिन ये बेहद कष्टकारी और असहनीय होता है। दांत दर्द की वजह से कई बार सिर दर्द और यहां तक किी चेहरे पर भी सूजन आ जाती है। ऐसे में आप न तो खा सकते हैं न सो सकते हैं। दांत दर्द किसी भी उम्र में हो सकता है और इसकी तीव्रता भी अलग- अलग होती है। दांतों मे कीड़ा लगना, सड़न होना, दाढ़ कुछ फंस जाना, संक्रमण होना, मसूड़ों की बीमारी वगैरह से दांतों में दर्द होता है।

प्रकृति  से दूरी ने बढ़ाई समस्या
पुराने समय में लोग दांत की समस्या से ज्यादा परेशान नहीं रहते थे, जिसकी एक मुख्य वजह थी प्रकृति़ के करीब होना। लोग नीम के दातून से लेकर कई तरह की जड़ी बूटियों का इस्तेमाल करते थे, जो दांतों की सुरक्षा में मददगार रहती था। उनकी जीवन शैली साधारण और खानपान भी शुद्ध और पौष्टिक होता था। आजकल भागदौड़ की जिंदगी, जंक फूड, केमिकल युक्त पेय पदार्थ ये सब आम आदमी के जीवन का हिस्सा बन चुके हैं। ऐसे में जरा सी लापरवाही भारी पड़ सकती है। आजकल छोटे बच्चों में भी दांतों की समस्याएं देखी जा सकती हैं।

कैसे करें देखभाल

  1. कोई भी चीज खाने के बाद तुरंत कुल्ला कर लें। खासकर मीठा खाने के बाद पानी से कुल्ला करके, एक घूंट पी लें।
  2. गरम चीज खाने के तुरंत बाद ठंडा न खाएं, वहीं ठंडे के बाद गरम चीज न खाएं। ऐसा करने से दांत कमजोर होते हैं।
  3. बहुत ज्यादा गरम और बहुत ज्यादा ठंडी चीजें खाने से बचें।
  4. कोल्ड ड्रिंक के बजाय घर के बने पेय पदार्थ पिएं। नींबू पानी दांतो के लिरए बेहतर ड्रिंरक है।
  5. सोने से पहले ब्रश जरूर करें।

दांत दर्द होने पर क्या करें (घरेलू नुस्खे):

1. तेज दांत दर्द में लौंग का तेल रुई के फाहे में लगाकर दांत पर रख लें। तेल न होने पर लौंग भी दबा सकते हैं। माना जाता है कित, लौंग उस हिस्से को सुन्न कर देता है, जिससे दर्द में राहत मिल जाती है। लौंग में बैक्टीरिया नष्ट करने के गुण भी होते हैं।
2. अदरक का टुकड़ा भी दांत दर्द में मददगार होता है। अदरक के टुकड़े को कुचलकर, दांत में दबाकर, मुंह बंद कर लें। धीरे- धीरे अदरक का रस चूसें, आपको कुछ देर में राहत मिल जाएगी।
3. हींग हर किसी के किचन में मौजूद होती है। नींबू के रस में हींग को भिगोकर दर्द वाली जगह लगाएँ, ये दांत दर्द का काफी कारगर इलाज है।
4. कच्चा प्याज दांतों के लि ए काफी फायदेमंद होता है। इसमें बैक्टीर‌यानाशक गुण होते हैं। अगर आप प्याज खाने से परहेज नहीं करते तो इसे सलाद में शामिल करें।
5. दांत में कीड़ा लगने पर प्याज के रस से कुल्ला करें। रोजाना प्याज का टुकड़ा कीड़े वाली जगह पर रखने पर कुछ दिनों में आराम मिल जाएगा।
6. नमक और कालीमिर्च दांत दर्द में बहुत उपयोगी होता है, क्योंकि  इन दोनों में बैक्टीरियारोधी गुण होते हैं। इसके लि ए नमक और कालीमिर्च में पानी मिलाकर पेस्ट बना लें। प्रभावित जगह पर इसका इस्तेमाल करें। आराम मिलने तक इसे लगाते रहें।
7. लहसुन भी दांत दर्द में काफी फायदेमंद होता है। लहसुन को कुचलकर इसमें सफेद या काला नमक मिलाएं। इसमें दर्द वाली जगह पर रखकर मुंह बंद रखें।
8. गुनगुने पानी और नमक के गरारे से भी दांत दर्द में राहत मिलती है। अगर दर्द की वजह से सूजन आ गई है तो उसमें भी ये फायदा पहुंचाएगा।
9. तवे को आग पर रखें और उसमें पानी डालकर फिटकरी डालें। फिटकरी जब पानी सोख ले तो उसे आंच से उतारकर उसको पीस लें। अब इसके चौथाई भाग में हल्दी मिलाएं। इस मिश्रण को दर्द वाले हिस्से या कैविटी पर लगाएं।
10. पिसे हुए सफेद या सेंधा नमक में तेल मिलाकर उंगली से मालिश करने पर भी दांत दर्द में आराम मिलता है। इस पेस्ट को मंजन के रूप में इस्तेमाल करना दांतों के लि ए फायदेमंद होता है।
11. जामुन के पेड़ की छाल को उबालकर, इसके पानी से कुल्ला करने से मसूड़ों की सूजन मे राहत मिलती है।
12. दांतों से खून आ रहा हो तो भी नमक के पानी से कुल्ला करने पर राहत मिल जाती है।
13. तिल का तेल और लौंग का तेल दांत दर्द में राहत दिलाते हैं। तिल के तेल में नमक मिलाकर दांत की मालिश करें, दर्द में आराम मिलेगा।
14. अमरूद के पत्ते को पानी में उबालकर कुल्ला करने से भी दांतों को फायदा मिलता है। अमरूद के पत्ते को पानी में काफी देर तक उबालें और इस पानी को ठंड कर लें। बिल्कुल ठंडा न करें, गुनगुना होते ही इससे कुल्ला करें। इससे दांतों की टीस में भी आराम मिलता है।

Importance of Brushing With Tooth Paste!

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Importance of Brushing With Tooth Paste!

Brushing with toothpaste is important for several reasons. 

  • First and foremost, a toothpaste and a correct brushing action work to remove plaque, a sticky, harmful film of bacteria that grows on your teeth that cause cavities, gum disease, and eventual tooth loss if not controlled. 
  • Second, toothpaste contains fluoride, which makes the entire tooth structure more resistant to decay and promotes remineralization, which aids in repairing early decay before the damage can even be seen. 
  • Third, special ingredients in toothpaste help to clean and polish the teeth and remove stains over time. Fourth, toothpaste help freshen breath and leave your mouth with a clean feeling.

What type of toothpaste should I use?

 As long as your toothpaste contains fluoride, the brand you buy really does not matter, neither does whether or not it is in the paste, gel or even powder form or containing a certain flavor. All fluoride toothpaste work effectively to fight plaque and cavities and clean and polish tooth enamel. Your toothpaste brand should bear the ADA (American Dental Association) seal of approval on the container, which means that adequate evidence of safety and efficacy have been demonstrated in controlled, clinical trials.

If your teeth are hypersensitive to hot or cold, consider trying a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth. These "desensitizing" toothpaste, which contains strontium chloride or potassium nitrate, protect exposed dentin by blocking the tubes in the teeth that are connected to nerves. Desensitizing pastes must be used for at least one month before any therapeutic effects are felt.

Toothpaste containing baking soda and/or hydrogen peroxide (which are both good cleansing agents) give the teeth and mouth a clean, fresh, pleasant feeling that can offer an incentive to brush more, but fluoride is the true active ingredient at work protecting your teeth. Some prefer a tartar-control toothpaste containing pyrophosphates to prevent the build-up of soft calculus (tartar) deposits on their teeth. New pastes offer advanced whitening formulas aimed at safely removing stains to make teeth brighter and shinier, although they can't nearly match the effectiveness of a professional bleaching formula administered or prescribed by a dentist.

How much should I use?

Contrary to what toothpaste commercials show, the amount of paste or gel needed on your brush for effective cleaning does not have to be a heaping amount. Simply squeeze a pea-sized dab of paste on the top half of your brush. If you brush correctly, holding the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle and brush inside, outside and between your teeth, the paste should foam enough to cover all of your teeth. Children under age 6, however, should be given a very small, baby pea-sized dab of toothpaste on their brush. 

Is brushing with toothpaste enough to fight cavities and gum disease?

No. Although brushing thoroughly after each meal helps, flossing your teeth every day to remove plaque and food particles between teeth and at the gumline is just as important. Studies show that plaque will regrow on teeth that are completely clean within three to four hours of brushing.

Some home treatment for tanning of yellowish teeth do not smoke nor chew anything like pan masala.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Mouth ulcers are painful sores that appear in the mouth. Although they're uncomfortable, they're usually harmless and most clear up by themselves within a week. Rinse your mouth several times a day. You can use 1 cup of warm water mixed with 1/4 teaspoon baking soda and 1/8 teaspoon salt, followed by rinsing your mouth with plain water. Use an extra-soft toothbrush and a mild toothpaste. You can soften your toothbrush in hot water before using it. Take care.

I have some problem in my face and jaw allergies or heat Katti i dont know how to solve.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
In Allopathy, anti-histaminics or immunosuppressant medicines like steroids are used which only give temporary relief, with the problem returning once the medicine is stopped. On the other hand, during Homeopathy treatment of allergy is cured by strengthening the immune system and the symptoms subside on their own. At the same time, it needs to be understood that this is purely natural allergy treatment. No steroids or anti allergic medicines are used. The immunity is strengthened by Homeopathy instead of being suppressed as happens with allopathic treatment. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance.

Hyperdontia Too Many Teeth?

MDS - Periodontology and Oral Implantology, BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Hyperdontia Too Many Teeth?

When asked about the number of teeth, the immediate response is 32. What most people don’t realize is that this includes that 4 wisdom teeth also, which don’t erupt in 50% of the adults. The revised number is therefore 28. Again, this is what is normal, and there could be variations among people. While some could have lost some tooth and have less than 28, another interesting bunch of people can have more than 28.

This condition of having extra teeth is known as hyperdontia that is hyper for more and dontia for teeth. Also called as supernumerary teeth, they erupt in the same line as other teeth or if there is lack of space, erupt either on the tongue side or on the cheek side of the jaw bone. In severe cases, it could sometimes even give the appearance of a mouthful of teeth.

These vary in shape and size and the following are the common forms of supernumerary teeth.

  1. Mesiodens: The most common form, they erupt between the incisors in the front of the mouth. The extra teeth are usually conical and much smaller than the regular incisors.

  2. Paramolars: These would look like smaller molars and can grow on the cheek or the palatal side.

  3. Distomolars: These are extra-small, additional wisdom teeth and grow beyond the third molars.

Reasons: Not clearly established, but genetics has a key role in their formation. Abnormalities like cleft lip and palate, Ehler-Danlos syndrome, and Gardner syndrome can also lead to supernumerary teeth. It is more common in men than women.

Fixing Hyperdontia: Even if they do not cause any immediate damage, they will be exerting extra pressure on other oral structures and should be removed. The gums and the jaw bones will be under a lot of pressure with the extra load.

Before going ahead with removal, the underlying cause needs to be identified. If there is any anomaly like cleft lip or palate, that needs to be corrected. If Gardner’s syndrome is suspected, then other symptoms also need to be checked for. Once the cause is identified, then removing hyperdontia is just one part of the whole treatment.

A radiograph will help determine,  if there are additional teeth present. A removal plan then needs to be drawn up. After removal, the orthodontist will need to be involved to correct any misalignment with braces. The exact duration and type of treatment will depend on the patient condition. If it was just a conical mesiodens that erupted between the two incisors, then it could just be removed and the space closed in a short period of time. However, if there are many of them, then a planned removal and correction is required.

Hv a regular check up to your dentist atlst once in a 6 months.

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS

Dear Lybrate user, The Gap between your teeth can be removed with the help of braces treatment. Please consult an Orthodontist for the cost and duration of treatment as there are different options available. If you do not wish to go for braces, then veneers (composite or porcelain) will be helpful to eliminate the gaps.

Dear lybrate-user, This bitterness may not be anything serious. But if you stop smoking, you will get a lot of health benefit. You have started smoking for 4 -5 years only. It is easier to stop smoking early than later. Please motivate yourself to quit smoking at the earliest. All the best.
