I had a crown put on a broken tooth 10 days ago. I still have an ulcer and quite a bit of pain on the gum under the crown. The novacaine injection hurt terribly, like never before. Could there have been some damage that I still have pain. The office told me to keep gargling with salt water. But after 10 days, the ulcer from what I think was traumafrom the instruments is still here. Can this traumacause an abscess?

Yes if infected it may cause an abscess. Don't worry pl rinse your mouth with chilled water with ice cubes 3-5 times a day. Pl put icecream in the area of the ulcer for 1 n minute then eat it. You may continue rinsing with hot salt water. Apply honey over the ulcer n injection area. If ulcer doesn't heal soon pl consult a dental surgeon.

•Eat a healthy, balanced diet and avoid eating strongly flavoured or spicy food. •Cut down on sugary food and drink, as it can increase the amount of bacteria in your mouth. •Reduce your alcohol consumption. •Stop smoking. •Cut down on coffee. •Drink plenty of water to help prevent your mouth becoming dry. •Chew sugar-free gum after eating, to stimulate the flow of saliva. This will help clean away any remaining food particles. •Don't use toothpaste to clean your dentures, as it can scratch the surface and cause stains. •Clean your dentures thoroughly using soap and lukewarm water, denture cream or a denture-cleaning tablet. •Use a separate toothbrush to clean your dentures. •Make sure you visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Having regular dental check-ups will ensure that any plaque is removed from your teeth, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. •Your dentist can recommend the best way to clean your teeth and gums, and point out areas you might be missing. They can also identify any signs of gum disease and ensure early treatment. •Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. •If your bad breath is caused by a gastrointestinal problem, such as an H. Pylori infection or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), you may be referred to a gastroenterologist. •Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. •You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person.

Dental Implants or Dentures - What is Best Suitable for You?

Dental Implants or Dentures - What is Best Suitable for You?

Tooth loss occurs due to various reasons decay and infection, fracture, accidents, gum disease, to name a few. Tooth loss has a negative impact on various aspects facial appearance, chewing efficiency, and overall nutrition. The attempts to restore the lost tooth have led to various advancements from removable dentures to cast partial dentures to fixed dentures to implants.

Listed below are features (covering advantages and disadvantages) of both dentures (fixed and removable) and implants. While dentures can be complete or partial, implants are more often partial, of course can be used to replace multiple teeth. A detailed discussion with your dentist along with oral and radiographic examination will help in making a decision.

Removable Dentures:

Advantages:

  1. Replaces tooth but more for cosmetic reasons than function.

  2. Poor chewing efficiency.

  3. Useful when multiple teeth are to be replaced, especially when no adjacent teeth are available for support.

  4. If good bone support is not available, retention is an issue.

  5. Not very healthy for the underlying jaw bone and adjacent gums.

  6. Requires daily and routine maintenance.

Fixed Denture(s):

Also called as bridges, as the artificial replaced tooth is a bridge between two natural teeth.

  1. Requires removal of sound tooth structure as abutment (support). This is the major disadvantage with fixed dentures, which promoted further work from the dentists, ending up with discovery of implants.

  2. Promotes tooth decay in the adjacent teeth.

  3. Good support, so retention is not an issue.

  4. Not as harmful to the underlying jaw bone as removable denture.

  5. Requires maintenance but not like the removable denture.

  6. Expensive compared to removable dentures.

  7. Replacing a bridge also means the adjacent healthy teeth are affected.

Implants:

  1. Very good replacement alternative, replaces not just the crown structure but also the root structure.

  2. An excellent option when the jaw bones and gums are extremely in good condition.

  3. Almost natural restoration of both chewing efficiency and facial appearance, the person can eat almost anything.

  4. Not as harmful on the gums like dentures.

  5. Does not cause bone loss like dentures.

  6. Can be used to replace single or multiple teeth, where multiple implants are placed and a bridge is placed over them.

  7. The titanium screws that are used fuse with the jaw bone over a period of time.

  8. The titanium is also biocompatible, thereby reducing chances of allergy.

  9. Implants are expensive, and many insurance companies may not cover them.

  10. If properly fabricated and maintained well, then it can last for decades.

The decision to go for a denture or for an implant should be decided based on a detailed evaluation of overall health and if required radiographic examination. Both dentures and implants have advantages and disadvantages, and the dentist will help make the right choice. If you wish to discuss about any specific dental problem, you can consult a specilized dentist and ask a free question.

Bad breath can be due to accumulation of plaque on teeth, decay, bad digestion, sore throat, dry mouth, consumption of caffeinated or aerated beverages n alcoholic drinks. Go for scaling and polishing of teeth. Use mouthwash twice daily after brushing. Maintain proper oral hygiene. Increase your water intake.

Hello mam, braces are available in a great variety these days and are having different advantages over each other. Tooth colored braces can be used with tooth colored wires which do not show much, aligners are a system where no braces are fixed to the teeth only transparent covers are worn by the patient, prices are variable.

Hello, you need to visit a dentist and get it checked. For an ulcer you can apply baking soda over it, or do baking soda in water mouth rinses. This will give you relief from pain and heal the ulcer. If it still persists, you can consult a physician and get your Vitamin B levels checked. If required take supplements for it.

how do you get rid of bad breath?

BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
how do you get rid of bad breath?
Here are 3 effective tips that you can help you fight bad breath and keep your mouth healthy on a daily basis.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

If you’re suffering from bad breath problems, it is important that you brush and floss twice a day. Use fluoride-based toothpaste that will help you to keep your mouth clean and remove food debris and plaque. It is also important to brush your teeth before you go to bed because bacteria can grow in your mouth while you’re asleep. It is also important that you scrape your tongue to remove any residue that may be building up after you eat your meals.

Keep Your Mouth Moist

Keeping your mouth moist is another way to eliminate bad breath issues which is why you need to ensure that you drink good amount of water throughout the day. Drinking adequate amount of water will help you stay hydrated as well. You can also chew sugarless chewing gums or candies that can stimulate production of saliva in your mouth to wash away food particles and bacteria. Choose chewing gums that have xylitol are always recommended.

Watch What You Eat

Certain foods can trigger bad breath in your mouth and therefore you need to keep log of what food you eat. This will help you to narrow down certain food items that worsen your bad breath problems. Similarly, there are certain medications that also trigger mouth odour, hence it is recommended that you talk about it with your dentist. Stay away from tobacco products and avoid smoking which also leads to bad breath issues.

We recommend that you visit your dentist regularly, at least twice a year to conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and to ensure that your mouth is clean and healthy. Your dentist will also be able to help you know whether the bad breath problem is due to general health conditions or triggered due to any food item or medications.

Teeth are not all pearly white. Teeth may vary in shades of white, whitish yellow, whitish -blue -gray, whitish red etc. Depending on ones genetics, environment, society, race, the shade can vary from ndividual to individual. Still if not satisfied you can get teeth scaling done and bleaching done with a local dentist.
