Gingivitis can be treated with professional scaling and polishing. Brushing twice in a day will help you maintain healthy gums.

If onlocal examination all the doctors have the same view then you should surely go for RCT as I cannot comment without examining physically.

I am decided to wear braces for teeth but my dentist want to remove two upper teeth and two lower teeth But my friends saying that by removing teeth it effects your eye. Is it true it causes any effect on eye, it effects any another body part or it causes any effect on future?

Dear lybrate-user, for better alignment of teeth, we need to create some space in the jaw towards which the teeth will move over the course of treatment. If you go ahead without extraction, the existing teeth in your jaw will become crowded and overlap one another due to lack of space. Hence, such extractions are necessary during most orthodontic treatments (braces). Also, unlike what was traditionally believed, these extractions do not adversely affect your eyesight or any other part of your body. These notions are totally mythical and have no scientific basis. Please go ahead.

Hi, Its not milk but the subgingival plaque and calculus which gives you bad taste. Still to confirm and rule out other conditions, we need to evaluate the clinical conditions. Regards Dr Amruta

B.D.S
Dentist,
First of all consult dentist to find exact cause of hypersensitivity. If it is due to wear off of enamel than than any sensitivity toothpaste can help or go for varnishing of affected tooth. If it is due to carious lesion than dentist can help better

Hello lybrate-user, your case appears to be that of a failed root canal treatment (rct). Ideally, in an rct-treated tooth, there is no vital tissue or nerve that can cause pain. However, in your case, it seems as if the procedure was not done properly. Taking pain killers will only provide transient relief. Most likely, you will be required to undergo a re-rct to get permanent riddance from this problem. Before initiating the re-rct, however, you will be required to take a 3-day course of medication.

Can't open my mouth completely due to wisdom teeth on uper left side. It's painful.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Can't open my mouth completely due to wisdom teeth on uper left side. It's painful.
Advice mouth opening exercises. Need more investigations (Full mouth x-ray) with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Adv. medication, cleaning, root canal treatment or surgical removal procedures for the gum mucosa above the tooth or the tooth itself. Until then apply clove oil. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.

The thought of taking RCT can be quite stressful. Don't worry though. Get a good night sleep before the treatment and you are sure to feel calmed down and fresh.

A central inciser lower teeth treated with root canal, after a month it started pain.

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS, Medicine
Dentist, Mohali
Visit the same dentist again. It shouldn't pain. Either the root canal done is not proper or else there might be some other reason. You can share xray if you have for better diagnosis!

My lip corner side tooth is mostly outline. Is it possible to braces only 1 tooth.

BDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
My lip corner side tooth is mostly outline. Is it possible to braces only 1 tooth.
No, actually to align a single tooth we have to put braces on all your teeth. The treatment can be carried on if the problem is in single jaw. If you don't want braces for single tooth, you can go for cosmetic correction. Options are crowns, laminates vineers.

I have fone fillings in ma tooth. I can feel sensation since the fillings are deleted. I am scared of drilling. Whether the same can be done through laser method. How much does it cost per teeth?

BDS, Basic Life Support (B.L.S)
Dentist, Pune
Laser is not more effective than drilling. A good dentist who genuinely cares about the patient and has a good hand will really put you at ease. You can put local anesthetic usually that helps too.
