How to come out of bad breathe? Am suffering a lot.

CERTIFIED ORAL IMPLANTOLOGIST, NON-RESIDENT J.R. IN DEPTT. OF ORTHODONTICS, BDS
Dentist,
Bad breath has many causes. Usually it happens because of entrapment of food in tooth crevices. So we need to discuss your problem. And find the cause and then we can start your treatment. As a preventive measure you can start rinsing everytime after meal. And using a mouthwash and effective toothpaste.

Why you wish to get your tooth extracted? If tooth having any problem get it corrected and get the crown over that .For new look. If your bone support for tooth is good.

I am 39 year old. I have dental sensitivity problem. What should I do?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist,
I am 39 year old. I have dental sensitivity problem.
What should I do?
A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

My tongue turns black some times and is whitish most of the times? I clean it regularly with tongue cleaner. Why do I some times have black tongue? My tongue is not smooth surface all over, it has kind of small not considerable grooves, and turns whitish most of the times.

Could be due to a vitamin deficiency or if you are consuming iron tablets. A blood test is needed to understand the problem.

Does that tooth hurts? if yes then you have to undergo root canal treatment with that tooth. That scratch must have occurred if you eat a lot of hard & acidic food.

Dental Implants - Understanding its Longevity

Dental Implants -  Understanding its Longevity

Ever wondered how good it would be if a tooth lost can be placed back in place?  That is just what the dental implant does.  Unlike the dentures, which replace only the crown portion of the tooth, the implant replaces the crown and the root portion of the tooth.

What’s more the chances of decay are less and there is no fear of mobility.  The dental implant replaces the natural tooth to the maximum extent possible, both in terms of chewing efficiency and stability of the tooth. It can take almost as much pressure as the natural tooth, with hardly any restrictions on diet.

When properly fabricated, the dental implant can last a lifetime. However, this longevity depends on two sets of factors.  The first is the overall oral health of the patient and the second is the post-implant care.

Oral health:  Before deciding that a person is to go for an implant, the following are considered:

  1. The person should have very good jaw bone support:  The titanium post that will be used as the root portion is placed into the gum ridge and unless the jaw bone is extremely healthy, it will not be able to support this.  Also, the post will be in left in place to get integrated into the bone for about 4 to 6 months.  During this phase, the oral health should be maintained extremely well.

  2. Placement:  The implant should be done by someone qualified to do an implant, not just by any dentist. Good fabrication of the implant is very essential for its longevity.

  3. Good oral hygiene measures: This is a prerequisite for choosing, if a person is a candidate for a dental implant.  If the oral hygiene habits are doubtful, then it would not be worth investing the time, effort, and money on an implant.

  4. Post-implant insertion care: Once the post is absorbed into the bone and the crown has been placed, meticulous care should be taken to ensure there is no plaque formation in and around the implant.  The gums have to be maintained healthy through regular brushing, flossing, interdental brushing and frequent mouth rinses. This will ensure the gums are healthy and can support the implant for years to come.  Regular visits to the dentist every 6 months and scaling in the dental office are also mandatory when you have an implant.

The overall health of the person also ensures success of implants.  Chronic uncontrolled conditions like heart disease, stress, diabetes, and smoking adversely affect the oral health and therefore the success of an implant. These are also associated with a greater risk of gum and periodontal disease.  Managing these optimally also adds to longevity of dental implants.

Hello lybrate user, orthodontic treatment can be done at any age provided you have a good periodontium. Since you have mentioned your age as 25, it's perfect to undergo orthodontic (braces) treatment. The duration of treatment can vary from 1 and half to 2 years depending upon the severity of your condition. The changes from this treatment will be permanent as you will have dentoalveolar changes over a period of time. As a patient you will be able to appreciate the minor dental changes (alignment of teeth) within 1-2 months after you wear the braces.
