Hello, bad breath could be because of deposits on teeth surface or food lodged in between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. Brush your teeth twice daily, night brushing is very important. Floss regularly. Rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

How to Manage Broken Front Tooth in Children

How to Manage Broken Front Tooth in Children

More than often, parents have to deal with children coming home with a broken front tooth / teeth. Dental problems (learn more to maintain dental health), injuries sustained during physical activities and games, munching on certain foodstuffs (nuts, certain candies) contribute in a big way to chipped front tooth. It is advisable for parents to consult a dentist at the earliest. Left unattended, the situation might result in infections or other dental complications (know more to maintain healthy teeth).

A broken front tooth is often the hardest to fix. The effectiveness of the treatment is largely governed by the nature and severity of the damage.

1. In case of a really small crack or a break, the problem can be fixed by simply filing the broken surface to smoothen it.

2. Dental bonding comes as a huge relief in situations where a small portion or corner of the front tooth chips off. The procedure is simple and hassle free. The surface of the broken tooth is fixed or bonded with a bonding material. The material is shaped well to give it a more natural appearance. The bonding material is finally hardened using UV light.

3. Dental crowning comes in handy when a large chunk of the front tooth cracks or breaks off. To understand the condition better, an X-ray of the affected tooth is carried out. If everything goes fine, the dentist proceeds to the next step. The tooth to be crowned is then filed down to ensure sufficient space to fit in the crown.

In some cases, the break results in enormous loss of the tooth. Under such circumstances, a filling material is used to assist the tooth in holding the crown. Next, an impression of the tooth (receiving the crown) as well as the opposing tooth is made using putty. Till the new crown is being manufactured, the dentist may fix a temporary crown (generally made of acrylic) to protect the tooth. In the next sitting, the dentist replaces the temporary crown with a permanent one. The crown used may be of stainless steel, all porcelain, all ceramic, metal, porcelain fused to metal or all resin.

In case of an extensive damage, Root canal is performed prior to the dental crowning. This goes a long way to ward off any possible dental infection or injury.

But other drinks with high acidity, such as soda, juices and even sports drinks can cause damage staining on the teeth because of its tannins and acidic nature wear away at the tooth enamel. These acidic drinks lowers the ph of teeth below 6 thus causing corrosive wear and tear of teeths. 2. Certain foods: all sweets, candies, popscicles, damage teeth due to its high sugar content.

Dear lybrate-user, bad smell from mouth have different causative factors like smelly food (garlic, onion), decay in teeth, infection in gums or even problems with stomach and lungs can also contribute to bad smell. One of the reason is not drinking water regularly i. E. Dry mouth too. Try to find out the reason and it is recommended that once in six months you get professional cleaning done.

Tooth pain is a symptom of decay in tooth, please visit your dentist as soon as possible. He will take an xray and determine severity of the decay. If the decay is less then he will remove the decayed part and reatore it with a filling. If the decay has reached the innermost tissue he will ask you to go for root canal treatment followed by crown placement/cap. If there is no chance of saving the tooth he will ask you to get the tooth pulled out/extracted. If you want you can consult with me privately so that I can tell you a treatment plan. I will require some x-rays and photographs of the tooth for the same. Have a nice day! keep smiling!

My age 25 and I have a problem of tongue tie. I want it removed. What will be the cost and time for its surgery?

MBBS, Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO)
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
It is a simple inexpensive procedure using a LASER, that I sometimes also do as an Office Procedure. it will cost you about Rs10000 all inclusive. No hospitalisation or bedrest required. However you will need to be on a liquid diet using a thick straw for a few days to allow the wounds to heal.
