One and half month before my mother took dental pain medicine from local medical shop without consulting the Doctor. From that day, she was suffering with more Saliva and bitter in her mouth, abdominal pain, Vomiting and diaria problem's. She couldn't take normal diet She could having liquid food only. Even If she eaten one piece Idly she getting Vomiting and pain in her abdominal. These problems were started slowly and then increased severely when we removed one of her teeth at the Dental Hospital due to more pain and swelling on the teeth. That time the Dental doctor said that my mother teeth were so weak and some of her teeth need to remove it. And also he said her teeth and gums got infected with more plague and fungal infections. The doctor suggested us to clean her teeth immediately. Initially, we thanked that my mother suffered with stomach ulcer and Iron deficiency problems. After few days only we noticed that her problems didn't decrease. She was suffered even more with Saliva and bitter in her mouth, abdominal pain, Vomiting and diaria problem's. Then only we realized that she was suffered with some chronic disease. And then we consulted with Dr. At Sudha Hospital, Royapuram, Chennai to diagnose the exact disease. The Doctor suggested us to take the ECG & CT scan to check my mother Heart, Liver, Kidney, Spleen and abdominal functions and also the Complete Blood Count Test. After taken all the suggested test only we came to know from the Doctor that my mother suffered with Acute Myeloid leukemia (Blood Cancer) disease. Due to my mother RBC and Platelet count very low we immediately admitted in the Rajiv Gandhi Govt Hospital in Chennai on 25.8.17 as per Dr. Balasubramaniam advice. She was under going treatment 15 days from 25.08.2017 to 09.09.2017. Due to her age problem the GH Doctor given only the low dosage of chemotherapy from 26.08.17 to 30.08.17 (5 days). At GH only we took Bone Marrow Aspiration test. The Bone Marrow Test report says 70% Blast on her Bone Marrow and CBC Report says 90% Blast on her blood. She was discharged on 09.09.2017 after 15 days treatment. The GH Doctor asked us to come after 15 days for the further follow up treatment. Now her abdominal pain feel better but didn't decrease fully. And she still having more Saliva and bitter in her mouth and couldn't eat the normal diet. How can we stop the excessive production of Saliva and bitter taste in Mouth. And can we cure the stomach ulcer problem while taking the blood cancer treatment or not? The stomach ulcer problem which happened by blood cancer or it is a another problem? Because my mother not able to take the normal diet. She said after drinking water, Milk or liquid food she having pain in her abdominal 10 to 15 minutes. After that the pain is reduced.
Know about different type of Dental Braces
People often ask me this question that what is the age limit to every braces treatment they have this lingering question in their mind what is the right age and what is the right time to get braces in the mouth? The answer to this question is there is no age limit in short no age bar for braces, so what happens is these people who didn't get the braces fitted in the mouth during the childhood think that they have to carry this crooked teeth throughout the life, which is not the case.
In the past there has been an increase of people getting braces in adulthood as well, the reason for this demand in society is a demand for aesthetics. I want to look good and also because of the digitisation people have a lot of access to the information through Internet, Facebook and social media and hence people want to look better and in this teeth have a major role to play. Also with the modernization we have been able to develop some good appliances including better braces. We have been able to develop some devices which are both aesthetic as well as comfortable for the patient. 1 cool example being ceramic braces they look good and are very less visible to others.
The Other form of braces are the lingual braces which are also called as The Invisible braces they are placed from the inside of the teeth duct. They also have some drawbacks like patients have discomfort while speaking and while eating food. These problems are dealt with the latest form of braces known as the customise lingual braces or customise invisible braces because the brackets are customised as per the person. They are CAD/CAM based and the wires are perfectly bent as per the person, hence the problem of speech and discomfort are taken care. These braces can be applied at any point of time even at 40 or 50 years so people who have problems in smiling in the social circle can be dealt with.
A lot of people when advised that they need to put on braces the first question is Dr how should I put braces at this age? The question that I ask is why do you think so?The answer given is that I look very awkward in the braces but with these lingual customise braces there is a solution to that.Hence what I said earlier that age is no bar for braces and with the aesthetic options coming up, people of any age at any point of time in their life can put on braces without compromising with their social life and social circle as customise lingual braces are so much invisible that you will actually have to tell people that you are wearing braces. Nobody would actually get to know that you are wearing braces or not.
So in short age is no not a bar for braces you can always contact me through lybrate
