Hello lybrate-user, an erupting wisdom tooth is often associated with pain, swelling, restricted mouth opening etc. Most commonly it is because of infection of the gums surrounding the erupting tooth. I will advise you to visit an oral surgeon/dentist who will most likely prescribe you a short course of antibiotic & pain killers. In the mean time do warm saline rinses and try to keep good oral hygiene by regular brushing. All the best.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, gap between front teeth can affect the aesthetics of smile as well as the face and therefore I can understand your concern. My advise to you would be to visit an Orthodontist (braces specialist) who will be able to suggest you the best possible treatment. Nowadays there are various new kind of treatment modalities which can make the treatment process invisible to others, for eg. Lingual braces, clear aligners etc. I am sure your orthodontist will guide you in choosing the most suitable appliance. All the best.

Hello lybrate-user, inability to open the mouth completely can be due to a variety of reasons. The most common cause for the same in your age group is erupting wisdom tooth (3rd molar). Other reasons can be Temporo Mandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, fibrosis of mucosa of the oral cavity etc. I would advise you to visit a dentist, preferably an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon who after diagnosing your problem will suggest the recommended treatment. In the mean time take good care of your oral hygiene by regular brushing and rinsing of mouth. Hope this helps, all the best.

He is breathing from his mouth in night and morning .and very much noise occurs when h breath. When I am asking the reason he said that his nose is closed just bcz cold .but in hav notice that no cold in the daytime. What is the reason.

MDS - Orthodontics, BDS

Hello lybrate-user, breathing through mouth when at rest is not normal. Although there are various reasons for the same, the most common cause is obstruction in the airway. The most common cause of obstruction in airway is upper respiratory tract infection in other words cough & cold. If mouth breathing persists even without cold then there may be other causes for obstruction. I will advise you to visit an ENT specialist who after doing a thorough check up will give you the right advice. Hope this helps, all the best.

Hello lybrate-user, pain and discomfort after surgical removal of wisdom tooth is a common finding. Normally the pain & swelling start subsiding after 48 hrs. However complete healing may take 7-10 days. Sutures if non-resorbable are removed after 5-7 days. Take soft semi-solid diet for the time being. Take your medicines as prescribed. Take good care of your oral hygiene by regular brushing & rinsing. Hope this helps, get well soon.

What is the best time to undergo Orthodontic treatment?

What is the best time to undergo Orthodontic treatment?

Ideally the first Orthodontic visit should be scheduled at seven years of age. In most cases the problem of malocclusion and unsightly appearance takes years to manifest completely and therefore, an early detection makes it possible for the orthodontist to intervene early. In addition the child's remaining growth can be utilized favorably for correction of the discrepancies of the jaw position.

However, with newer materials and techniques it is never too late to undergo Orthodontic treatment. Today it is possible for a seventy or eighty year old patient to successfully undergo a comprehensive or adjunctive Orthodontic treatment.

Hello lybrate-user Discoloration (yellow/brown patches) on teeth can be due to a variety of reasons. Broadly they are categorized as Extrinsic & Intrinsic causes. Discolouration of teeth occurring after the eruption of teeth due to the use of tobacco products, pan, tea-coffee etc. Are called as “Extrinsic stains” and they can easily be removed by the dentist. However some stains which are present on the tooth since its eruption in the mouth and called as “Intrinsic stains” cannot be removed from the tooth surface. In our country it is commonly seen in localities with high fluoride content in water. However the way to get over the problem is to either go for Laminates or undergo Crowning of the tooth. Please consult your dentist for proper advice.

Hello sir, there is akal daad growing in my mouth. Wht should I do its giving too much pain.
Hello" akal daad" or wisdom teeth are notorious for causing pain and discomfort in most people. The most common cause for the problem is insufficient space in the jaws for the eruption of teeth. The tissue covering the tooth often gets inflamed due to trauma or poor oral hygiene and causes pain and difficulty in mouth opening. If your problem has persisted for more than six months I will advise you to visit an oral surgeon who will take an x ray and analyse its chances of eruption. If it looks unlikely that the tooth will erupt then it will be prudent to get it surgically removed. For the time being try to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing after every meal. All the best.

"Buck Teeth" in a young girl successfully treated by Orthodontics

"Buck Teeth" in a young girl successfully treated by Orthodontics

Its not unusual for a child to have irregularly placed teeth. As parents and guardians, we often overlook the problem considering it to be developmental in nature. Most of us believe that the problem would correct on its own as the child attains maturity. Unfortunately, this is a misconception. Inaction on your part may aggravate the problem. Timely consultation with an Orthodontist will not only prevent the problem from becoming more severe but will also help the child overcome the mental trauma associated with a disfiguring malocclusion.

Who should be treating you with braces?
Although dentistry has seen tremendous developments in treatment techniques and materials in the last few decades, public awareness exercises have somehow not been able to keep pace with its rise. As a result most people today will be surprised if they are told that dentistry has nine different specialties.

Orthodontics happens to be the first specialty in dentistry. It deals with prevention, interception & correction of malocclusion (improper bite). Common problems like spacing between teeth, crowding of teeth due to lack of space, protrusion of teeth, un-aesthetic smile etc. Can be easily corrected by timely orthodontic intervention.

A malocclusion can result either due to abnormal position of the teeth or lack of harmony between upper & lower jaws. The best person to treat problems of such nature is an orthodontist. An orthodontist undergoes three years of rigorous training during his postgraduate program wherein he treats hundreds of patients having malocclusion of varying severity. After successful completion of the course he is awarded with the degree of mds orthodontics.

However as a consequence of lack of awareness, a lot of patients still do not seek the advice of an orthodontist for their problem. As a result such patient do not get the desired treatment outcome which predisposes their dentition for relapse after treatment. In addition such patients may also experience harmful effects on their occlusion (chewing efficiency) and may develop tmj (temporomandibular joint) related disorders in the long run. It is recommended that an orthodontic specialist be consulted before undergoing treatment of such nature.

Hello from what you have mentioned in your question, it is obvious that your tooth has suffered some form of trauma. The fact that you have suffered episodes of severe pain suggests that the root and adjacent tissue may have got infected. Normally a problem of such nature can be overcome by undergoing root canal treatment (rct). Please visit a dentist who after doing a thorough clinical and radiographic (x ray) examination will inform you about the various options available. If the tooth can be saved I am sure your dentist will do everything possible to salvage it. All the best.

Dear tooth ache can really be annoying and I can completely understand your predicament. However since you have not given any specific information about the pain, let me tell you that pain in your teeth can be due to a variety of reasons. The most common being dental caries or tooth decay, commonly called as" cavities. However the pain can also arise due to gum/gingival diseases, erupting last molar etc. Therefore I will advise you to consult a dentist urgently so that he can examine you properly find the cause of the problem and then do the needful. Regards.

I am a male, 35 years of age and married with 1 daughter of 4 years young. From my marriage days, my wife telling me that I have bad breadth and my mouth is having some problems. I consulted the doctor and I am brushing both day and night and also using the mouthwash. But still the problem persists. Pl help me to resolve my problem.

Dear bad Odour from mouth is a very common problem. Although it can have various local as well as systemic causes, the most common cause of the problem is poor oral hygiene. It seems you already brush twice daily and also use mouth wash. However how often do you clean your tongue? unclean tongue is a very frequent source of bad breath. You can either use your brush or the tongue cleaner to properly clean your tongue after meals. In addition I will suggest you to start using dental floss at least once daily. Dietary & lifestyle modification like avoiding odorous food like onion, garlic, smoking (if you smoke) can also help. Don't let your mouth dry, sip water intermittently. I am sure you will get over the problem. Sometimes other diseases like infection of respiratory tract (sinusitis) or digestive system disturbances can also be the culprit but think about these only if you don't get relief by following the above suggested steps. Regards.

Dear bleeding from gums can have numerous causes but the most common cause of the problem is poor/inadequate oral hygiene maintenance. Over a period of time the gum tissues surrounding the tooth get infected and swollen and start bleeding even by the slightest provocation. As is evident from your question you have been concerned about your problem for quite some time now and have on your part tried to cure it by changing tooth pastes. Actually the problem is more related to our faulty and inadequate brushing technique. What you need to do now is to visit a dentist & get a professional dental cleaning done. Once that is done get into the habit of brushing at least twice daily, regular rinsing of mouth and flossing. Pleas take instructions from your dentist for the proper technique to brush and floss. That should keep your gum healthy and you happy. Regards.
