I had cavity. My dentist firstly drilled the teeth and then laser fill. She did it in a single day. But some of my friends say that their teeth were cleaned and some medicine were given to remove infection and after few days later, teeth was filled. I'm worrying. Is everything OK with me or I need medical help?

How to Protect Your Child from Cavities?

How to Protect Your Child from Cavities?

Maybe your kids love candy a little bit too much, or they don’t take care of their teeth regularly, despite your best efforts. Cavities can be annoying, painful, & embarrassing for kids; not to mention how expensive they can be for you to fix. But there are things you, as parents, can do to protect your child from ever getting cavities in the first place.

Of course, you want to teach & encourage your child to brush daily. However, even if your child takes care of his or her teeth & sees a dentist regularly, this won’t make them completely resistant to getting cavities.

You might think cavities are just something kids have to go through. After all, you had one or several cavities when you were younger. But this is not true. Children do not have to get cavities.

Children are more likely than adults to get cavities

Due to the natural shape of their growing teeth, children are more likely to get cavities. When their adult molars first come in (around age 6), pits & grooves form on the teeth, & these areas are hard to reach with a toothbrush. Germs can grow a lot easier, and, therefore, tooth decay often begins.

Children also enjoy sweets & snacking, & they often don’t brush their teeth for the full recommended two minutes each time.

Dental sealants provide protection for your childs teeth

Dental sealants provide the maximum protection for your child’s teeth. This preventive treatment is quick, pain free, & proven to be effective.

How do sealants work? They are plastic resin coatings that are applied to molars. In only a few minutes, one of our qualified dentists will paint the sealant onto the tooth, & then harden the sealant using an ultraviolet light.

The sealants mold to the grooves of the tooth’s surface & create a barrier between plaque causing bacteria & the tooth enamel, thereby, preventing cavities.

Children don’t always brush their teeth after eating or know how to thoroughly remove plaque. If plaque stays on the teeth, it can begin attacking the tooth enamel.

Getting dental sealants for your children’s teeth can prevent your child from losing teeth or having to undergo costly fillings or root canals.Dental sealants usually last for several years but can last for up to 10 years, making them an excellent investment for parents.Research has shown that if you can keep kids ages 6 to 12 from getting cavities, this makes a big difference in their oral health as they age.

Hello, bad breath could be because of deposits on the teeth or food lodged in between your 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.

I have severe pericoronitis .the swelling won't let me sleep and my neck is stiff .please tell me do I have to get the gums surgically removed? My dentist said it's not that serious and the swelling will go away after antibiotics. But I am scared to eat lots of medicines. Kindly suggest.

Regards Please understand what pericoronitis is before you do anything else. It is a physical problem where food particles and plaque accumulate beneath a small area of gingiva overlying a lower third molar. Because of this, it gets inflamed and swells up. Because of the swelling, it gets chewed upon by corrosponding upper tooth. This causes further damage and further aggravates the inflammation and thus swelling. This become a viscious cycle. Because of some antibiotics, painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications, the current episode might resolve only to cause a another episode because the physical problem has not been corrected. This problem is sort of new to our generation based on evolutionary explanations. Our jaw sizes are reducing while the number and size of teeth remains the same. Thus the third molars are generally partially covered by bone and/ or gingiva from the back. This causes third molar impaction or pericoronitis. I would strongly suggest that you stop beating around the bush and get that third molar extracted given that you are unable to sleep because of the severity of this episode. If not indicated in your particular case, consider laser operculectomy (removal of excessive gingiva covering a third molar by laser to cause minimal swelling). It might seem drastic, but take some time and consider the various episodes of pain and swelling that you will have to face unnecessarily because of a tooth that is not as useful in chewing.

An xray will confirm the status of the damaged teeth and then can be treated accordingly as per cosmetic needs. Either a composite filler of the same colour of yr damaged teeth can be used to reconstruct or root canal treatment with colour matched crowns can be made for the teeth depending on tooth conditions.

I am troubled often by mouth ulcers. Are there simple remedies for this? I use a pain relieving gel and go on a course of folic acid and becosules and they come under control.

MDS - Oral Medicine and Radiology, BDS
Dentist, Ahmedabad
Hi, the problem you have described is suggestive of recurrent aphthous ulcers. Once ulcers are formed, they will stay for 5 to 10 days and heal by itself. For pain and burning over the ulcers, you can apply honey as a home remedy. Pain receiving gels and multivitamins like becosules and folic acid also help. These ulcers are mainly related with constipation, inefficient sleep, stress, vitamin deficiency and many more. If you get ulcers more then one time in a month for more than a year, then it's time to visit an oral medicine specialist and get the condition treated.

Enamel once lost is lost forever as it cannot be reproduced by the body the second time. There is no medicine that could repair the solid structure of the tooth. Only option available is visit a dentist who will advise you whether you need any kind of tooth restoration.
