Here's my opg. I have severe gum pain due to wisdom tooth. Doctor told me to continue medication for seven days. Some doctors told me to remove wisdom tooth. What to do now?

Hello, you can do warm salt water rinses as a home remedy, but this will give only temporary relief from pain. You need to visit a dentist get it checked. Get an x-ray done. The best treatment for the wisdom tooth is to get it removed.

I have pulp polyp. Went to a dentist. She said that its in my molar (deciduous tooth) she said that its my milk tooth and the permanent tooth did not came even when I am 19 now. So that's why I have problem of pulp polyp in my tooth. She said that I will have to pull out that teeth and to fill tha gap I should get braces. Is the reason by this doctor justified?

The pulp polyp is remedied by curetting the new connective tissue mass from the pulp holding cell and also carrying out endodontic therapies on the remaining tooth root structures, assuming the interradicular ground remains undamaged. Extraction can be an accepted remedy alternative. There is absolutely no malignant change and the lesion is not going to automatically regress. Leaving a pulp polyp without treatment can lead to a number of problems. Contamination of the adjoining gingival tissue mass and also abscess could appear. The harmful bacteria might spread to additional healthy teeth leading to other cavities to create, leading to the requirement for more dental treatments. Finally, the teeth might end up being too affected to restore and the impacted teeth might have to be removed.

Dental Implants and its Benefits

Dental Implants and its Benefits

Dentistry has made a lot of progress in the past few decades and continues to do so. However, certain factors, such as injuries, gingivitis, gum disease and decay of tooth can all lead to tooth loss. Previously, bridges and dentures were the only options available, but now a new form of treatment known as ‘dental implants’ have come up. Implants are basically replacements to your broken or damaged teeth and can function just like the way your original teeth did. Implants also provide a strong foundation and have a success rate of around 98 per cent.

The advantages of dental implants are the following:

  1. Implants help you eat easily as they act like your natural teeth. Owing to this, implants score over dentures.
  2. Since implants look like your natural teeth, they can give you back the smile you need and hence you appear confident and feel better about yourself.
  3. Implants are durable and can last a lifetime which makes it advantageous over other dental procedures.
  4. Implants are permanently fused to your bone and help to improve your speech as they are fitted properly to avoid any sort of slip.

Are you suited for a dental implant?
The answer is obviously yes and in fact, anyone suffering from dental concerns can go for dental implant. Being healthy for routine extraction and other oral surgeries deem you eligible and fit for dental implant procedures. However, the minimum necessity is healthy gums if you are considering dental implants. But, it is always advisable to consult your dentist.

Implants require regular visits to your dentist and maintaining proper oral hygiene is a must. If you are a regular smoker or have chronic disorders such as diabetes and heart disease or have had radiation therapy done on your neck or head region previously, then you may have to consult your dentist before zeroing in on dental implants.

Due to an accident, My friend upper and lower gums had been cut. What is his situation? And Is there any treatment for it?

If cut is minor then it will heal. After that he can undergo cosmetic surgery if he wants. It can be treated easily. Don't worry. Let it heal first.

Patients should visit their endodontists (especially trained to perform root canal treatment) or general dentist after the root canal treatment to have proper restorative work completed on the tooth.

My front teeth broken half, but now no more such incident? Feeling normal also. Is there any reason for worries?

Dentist, Asansol
It is a big issue. See your teeth contains pulp, may be that is not paining because it is already dead or necrosed. But that chamber may become infected. Later on u may get a pain with following a lesion beneath the root of the tooth. Better visit one dentist nearby and get one x-ray done and do the remaining treatment. After the treatment your face and smile will look normal also.

Munching foods like apples, pears, carrots or celery after brushing can help in preventing discoloration as they trigger tooth-bathing saliva which helps in keeping the teeth whiter.

I am 57. My teeth are getting exposed from roots. The skin adjoining the base of the tooth is getting low day by day. My dentist told me that this could be due to acid formation as I often suffer from acidity. Can you please suggest what can I do to save my teeth.

You should take action to reduce acidity . Take light and easily digestible food items. Drink plenty of water. Take homeopathic medicine nux vomica 30 daily at night for relief of acidity problem. Eat nutritious food items

Dentist, Cuttack
Pain in your lower right corner with swollen gums can be because of many reasons. Commonest being eruption problem due to wisdom tooth. Though you r 29 n you should already hav your wisdom tooth erupted by now. But wisdom tooth are always notorious. Other reasons might include gum problem there or caries. You r under antibiotic coverage and it better to visit a dentist and receive proper treatment now. Thank you.

Well you should visit a dentist and get your teeth cleaned & polished. Maintain a habit of brushing twice daily, use mouth wash as well as use a tongue cleaner. Avoid eating raw onion.

Hello! I'm 22 year old, I have undergone root canal treatment for my two front teeth (upper). I have caps on them now. As I am an army aspirant (officer entry), I always have a doubt about my eligibility. I have read about dental parameters. It is said that there should be no artificial dentures. An I eligible? Please let me know.

You may need deep cleaning along with polishing. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals.

Smoking can stain your teeth yellow, cause bad breath, and increases your risk of gum disease, breathing problems, lung cancer and mouth cancer.
If you smoke 20 or more cigarettes a day, you're six times more likely to develop mouth cancer than someone who doesn't smoke. So giving up smoking is important if you want to look and feel better.

Massaging your gums daily with eucalyptus or peppermint oil in a circular motion throughout the mouth will increase the blood activation and will keep your gums healthy and safe.

MY UPPER 2 TOOTH WERE REMOVED 2 YEARS BACK & PLACE IS EMPTY. WHAT IS THE BEST CURE & EXPENDITURE EXPECTED SIR?

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Don't keep that place empty because nearby teeth will start moving and will close the gap and you will face biting and jaw problem. U can go for dental bridge means artificial teeth unit.Its like cap only but requires support of two adjacent teeth. If u can afford implant is the best option for you that will cost you around 30k

Sir I suffering from dental pain. Can I know what are the remedies to stop my dental problems. Since I am suffering from so many days.

BDS (GOLD MEDALIST)
Dentist, Jamshedpur
Hi, pain can be due to some conditions like dry mouth, gum disease, caries in tooth and fracture of tooth. You need to be investigated properly to rule out the cause of pain. For temporary relief from pain you can take ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water. You can chew a clove also.

Hello Doctor, I have visited more than 50 dentists to solve an issue of bad odour in my mouth for over 20 years now but not got a solution. Are there any tests to check the Sulphide content in my saliva, or H.pylori bacteria or any other way to test and take supplements as this is not a dental issue and my dental hygiene is excellent with Brushing after meals, Flossing and oral care. I am a teetotaler.

Dentist, Vadodara
bad breath can be due to deposit of plaque and calculus on teeth, dry mouth, throat infection, regular n increase consumption of tabacco, cigarette, alcohol, caffeinated drinks like tea or coffee. use mouthwash twice daily after brushing. increase your water intake n take it at regular intervals. check for any throat infection or stomach upset. reduce your intake of caffeinated drinks n alcoholic beverages n aromatic foods like onions and garlic.
