I have a pain in the left side of my jaw. This is when I open my mouth big or eat something. I keep hearing a cracking sound in my jaw. How can I get relieved of this pain and problem?
My father is a tobacco addict. His gums become dilute n ulcers came to his mouth 2 days ago. He had some fever n he is having constipation. He said that he stops chewing tobacco thereafter he is having all these problems because of change. Is that possible. I think that he is hiding something. Maybe ulcers came first and then he leaves tobacco. What should we do to confirm that it is not a serious problem like mouth cancer. Suggest me some test or where can we have those test or any other mean for confirmation.
A few years unexpectedly in an accident, One of my tooth came little forward and another one moved back. Can I use braces and how much it costs for me?
Since 5 days my left side on face feels swollen. And I'm having pain whole opening my mouth fully. Have tongue burn issues and sometimes ulcers too but tongue burn & ulcers goes away every time within a week also this time it's just 3 days. And it's recovering. And swollen face also decreased but what can be the reason behind the slight pain I'm facing while opening mouth? Can this be signs of cancer? Or swollen face just might be because of some sleeping position issues how much time should I give to get it recovered else after how many days I should visit doctor considering it's not normal. Thank you.
The upper jaw the upper teeth are not align and the main issue is the front 2 canine are not visible while talking the other teeth are visible but seems awkward while talking. I want to do the orthodontic treatment as the lower jaw is slightly forward than the upper jaw. I want to start the treatment as soon as possible but as I study in russia my doctor suggested to wait till I complete my studies coz I will not be able to come to take monthly appointments. Two years are remaining for my studies but I do not want to wait as I feel shy while talking. I could not interact more with anybody due to this issue. I can not take treatment from russia as it very costly which is not affordable to me. I asked my doctor is there no any temporary solution to just make my front 2 canine visible while talking. They said no. I hope I get a solution from you.
I hav removed my wisdom teeth now bit pain is there but better than earlier what care should I have to take care till I feel better doctor say your mouth will swelling from 2 row what can I do to prevent this.
A loss of tooth or teeth is one of the biggest dental problems that someone can face. The irony is that people consider loss of teeth to be very insignificant. But in reality loss of teeth can lead to not only cosmetic problems, but also functional problems and an unstable chewing mechanism.
Loss of teeth can lead to many problems. Some of them are:
- Supra eruption of opposing teeth
- Compromised efficiency of chewing
- Adjacent teeth might drift into the space created by missing teeth
- Food tend to accumulate between teeth, which have moved
- Food accumulation also leads to periodontal disease and caries
- A lopsided chewing pattern as there is loss of equilibrium in the mechanism of chewing
- The extracted area might reveal a loss of bone height
- Problems of the temporomandibular joints, like closed bite and TMJ osteoarthritis
- The existing functional teeth might lead to problems due to overload
- There are increased chances of cheek biting due to collapse of the cheek in the missing space, thus leading to functional and cosmetic problems
- The frequency of tongue biting and ulceration might increase in the area of missing teeth or tooth
When missing teeth are replaced, one can easily restore the healthy look of the teeth and also prevent any other dental problems which are due to the missing teeth.
While replacement of the missing teeth it is of utmost importance that the equilibrium is maintained with the distribution of the forces caused by chewing. Care is also taken that the cosmetic outlook is also maintained in the treatment.
Ideally the teeth when extracted or lost should be immediately replaced. This is because the replacement prevents the bone resorption or bone loss in the area and also retains the good bone. But a drawback is that such an immediate replacement might lead to limitation. Immediate treatment is usually done with the help of implants which easily fit in the sockets created by extraction. But even for this an analysis of the bone and gum health is necessary, thus leading to only a few instances for such replacements. Other alternative is that immediate removable dentures can be prepared and these can be replaced once the gums of the area have healed. The time period for this is usually 3 months. If these need to be fixed permanently then a waiting period of 3 months is mandatory for the settling and healing of the gums and bone of the area.
The 3 basic ways of fixing missing teeth are through implants, fixed bridgework (bridges and crowns) and dentures, which can be removed.
